These New York City Ladies Show You How To Brunch in Style

What a chic celebration! 

Joslyn Winkfield Feb, 03, 2017

There’s nothing like a brunch with the girls, especially when it’s in celebration of your birthday. That’s exactly what happened when three ESSENCE staffers, who all have January birthdays — Digital Director, Yolanda Sangweni; Senior Director of Event Marketing, Candace Montgomery; and Fashion and Beauty Director Julee Wilson — with the help of Reserv Concierge, gathered a small group of their favorite gals at Fumo Restaurant in Harlem, New York City, to toast to another year of life. 

The happy occassion was further heightened by festive looks (these ladies definitely know how to pull together an outfit), a stunning (and tasty) cake by Make My Cake and Rachel Stewart Jewelry “Sheba” earrings for everyone. 

Click through to see this group of successful and creative women getting together to celebrate birthdays, sisterhood and style.
