Please tell us about yourself!
My name is Tamiko White. I am a fashion entrepreneur, media personality and author. I love fashion, art, food, and all things lifestyle!
What did you love most about living in LA? If you could change one thing about it, what would that be?
I lived in LA years ago but have been back in NY for many years now. Mostly because my mom is here. I visit LA several times a year and consider it my 2nd home.
If I could change one thing about LA, it’d be how far everything is. As a New Yorker, I’m used to multi-tasking in various locations in a single day. Hard to do in LA.
Why did you choose the Viva LA Champion sweatshirt?
I chose the Viva LA Champion sweatshirt because I love cozy clothes. Champion has great fabric and the art I wanted was sold out. LOL!
Don't worry Tamiko, we will make sure you get your art!!
I will wear my sweatshirt with a white collared shirt underneath. I wanted it to feel a bit tailored for my lives and Zooms.
The Viva LA Champion Sweatshirt - $98
What keeps you inspired?
Color, art, and my nails inspire me. When I need inspiration, I go for a walk with my dog Buddy. It allows me to get out of my head and just be. Thoughts just begin to flow. I often don't take my phone when I walk him so I can be alone with my creative voices.
What is your favorite message of hope?
My favorite message of hope is “walk by faith, not by sight.”
Who are some of your favorite artists?
I love so many artists but I'm really digging this artist I found on Clubhouse - @atribecalledjess (Jessica Roner). I am going to commission her for a piece this year.
What are you most excited to do once COVID is over?
I am most excited to get to LA. I am coming back in March and will probably be there for a couple weeks! First thing is a hike!
Thank you Tamiko! Everyone...follow along and see what she's up to on Instagram, Tamiko has style for days!!
