LaTonya Yvette, the blogger and stylist behind the eponymous site, is unapologetically candid about life’s trials, including motherhood, love, death, and racism. Her first book, Woman of Color, is part memoir, part lifestyle guide—packed with moving essays, gorgeous original and archival photographs, and practical style and beauty advice. At the very heart, though, it’s about LaTonya’s experience growing up as a woman of color in Brooklyn.
Each beautifully designed chapter covers a different topic—the meaning behind her name, how vitiligo has shaped her definition of beauty, her childhood hairstyles, raising her children as a 20-something mom—and ends with thoughtful advice and lifestyle takeaways like how to tie a headwrap or incorporate new, bold colors into your wardrobe. Woman of Color is real life, real style for women from all walks of life. In it, LaTonya has written a love letter to women, filling this book with vulnerable, imperfect truths from a black woman blogger, a voice not often seen on bookstore shelves.
LaTonya Yvette is a stylist and lifestyle blogger. Her eponymous blog covers motherhood, style, and beauty. She lives in Brooklyn with her two children, River and Oak.

Editorial Reviews

“LaTonya Yvette has won over legions of fans with her remarkable ability to explore the ‘funky in-between’ versions of herself as a woman and a mother, and this book delivers on that richness times a thousand. Equal parts vulnerable and empowering, practical and poetic, gorgeous to look at and gritty to read, it’s the kind of book you’ll want to keep on your nightstand—so you’re always an arm’s length from someone who gets it.”
