Aittle did I know that the simple act of buying a sassy little “samba dress” at a booth at the Farmers Market in Lancaster, CA would become so much more than a fashion statement in the years to come. Initially, I was looking to change up my look. I had gotten into a "jeans and leggings" rut. I wanted colorful cute and comfortable dresses and there she was, Ms. Lahna of Emorie Jordon!!! From the very start, she was warm and inviting. That day, I not only found what would become my staple wardrobe, but I found a friend. Emorie Jordon clothing became my go-to when I needed my "retail therapy" and never once did it disappoint.
Last year it was the perfect "cute and comfy" pandemic and zoom wear. Many a day I would throw on one of the many options that I now have and be ready for a video appearance in an instant. Also, last year, as life would have it, I ended up having a partial mastectomy (in the middle of the pandemic) and really needed to rethink my clothing options. I now had a totally different silhouette and numerous doctor appointments. It was important that I was able to still see "me" in the middle of one of the most challenging moments of my life. I got more compliments in my Emorie Jordon ensembles than any other clothing options. I was able to "camouflage" and still salvage my look.
Shortly after that, my 19-year-old niece was diagnosed with a rare cancer and that required chemo. She is well now and is still wearing the multiple beautiful scarves from Emorie Jordon. My sister-in-law suffers from fibromyalgia and was also responsible for the care, transporting and well-being of said niece/ her granddaughter. Emorie Jordon became the bright spot in her challenging journey that helped her to always be comfortable and presentable with style. While that may sound superficial, sometimes when you are going through challenges, you just have to get up and get yourself together. Oftentimes, when you look better you feel better.
Emorie Jordon's clothes are fun, unique, colorful and comfortable. Customer service is phenomenal!!!! I can't say enough about how grateful I am to Lahna for helping me (and my family) navigate through our various clothing challenges. Emorie Jordon has become an integral part of my personal journey and for that, I am truly grateful!!!
Coming from a family with a history of breast cancer, it never escapes me that there's a risk with my own health. I can still recall being in middle school when my grandmother received the diagnosis of breast cancer. She eventually decided on having a double mastectomy. It was clearly a shock for everyone in the house. My sister and I didn't feel like we could do much to help once she came back from the hospital. There were so many questions we wanted to ask. I remember my grandmother allowing us to see her scars and I remember being a bit taken back after I realized what had really happened.
I am happy to report that my grandmother is a survivor of over 30 years. Not too long after, my sister found lumps in one of her breast. Because of early detection, she was able to get them removed early. Unfortunately, within years...my grandmother lost a sister to breast cancer. It completely shocked our family. No one was prepared for it, and thought that she would survive it like my grandmother. But she didn't. My sister used to spend summers with our great aunt and loved that time away. No summer was the same for her...nor the family. Since then, we've had 2 other aunts be diagnosed and survive this deadly disease.
As I grew older, I remember asking my grandmother how her parents died....both died from cancer at a very early age. This is when it became very apparent that we needed to understand family history and health diagnosis. Although its not always about genetics, its almost always about the habits and traditions that are passed down. So sisters, I urge us to examine our eating habits, our daily activity, and our breasts regularly. Early detection is important, however prevention is always the goal

She has cemented her standing in the our hearts and spirits as a beacon to the culture. Her light has been illuminating a signal to brown girls everywhere to be your own kind of bad-ass. It's not always about beauty "of"...its more about the beauty "in"...self awareness, confidence, and good energy.
Let's face it, we live in a heavily saturated boutique market where many carry the same items. Your Instagram account will definitely stand apart from others with a mix of vintage style.
If you think about it, for decades our mothers, aunts grandmothers and ancestors has built something from literally nothing. There wasn't a such thing as fast fashion. They took care of their clothing and didn't really dispose of anything, because they couldn't afford to
In preparation for fall, we are getting to inspiration from backyards.
