Sweater Weather and Conversations

Posted on: Tuesday, September 16, 2014

 
Sweater weather at Forever 21 has me wanting to scoop up a few fall essentials and these colors will make it an effortless wardrobe update. And Im loving these bangs on this model. I’m thinking about trying it. Bangs for fall? or nah? What do you think? I need to get my “Fall” life together anyway. Its about to get cold and Idk if I’m ready for it. My lease ends in a few months and I have no idea what I want to do and its making me feel a little unprepared and a little uneasy. I mean I could always go with the flow but I feel like this is too major to “just go with the flow” right? Idk, some way it always seems to work itself out though, so I guess I just need to relax. Breathe. Sometimes all you need is a small conversation with yourself, just to bring you back down to life. I like having small convos with myself, lol. Does anyone else do that?

I think I’m really talking to God because I know he’s within me. Conversations with God. Ahhhh, peace. That’s the best book I’ve ever read, it’s by Neale Donald Walsch, “Conversations with God”. You should check it out. It was recommended to me when I was about 22, fresh out of college, young, lost and confused. If that’s how you feel or where you are in life I def recommend reading that book. It literally guided my path and brought me to where I am today. I met Eric Benét once and I dont know how we got to start talking about life but I guess because he thought I was young, had so much personality and had all my life ahead of me we got on the topic. He asked me what I wanted to become and I couldn’t answer. I didn’t know. He told me to read 3 books. The first, was “the Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. I’m sure you’ve all heard of it. If not check it out. After that he said to read “Conversations with God” by Neale Donald Walsch. Like the young eager beaver I was I pulled out my phone and carefully wrote down these books and I went out and bought and read them. It never came at a better time. He recommended a 3rd book but by the time I got to the 2nd book I’d gotten a new phone and didn’t have the last book written down anywhere else :-(. If I ever see Eric Benét (crazy odds) I wonder if he’ll remember the conversation and tell me that last book.

Mark and Estel NYFW S/S 2015

Mark an Estel was fun, edgy, and tres cool. Maxi t-shirt dresses, cool hats and rocker swag
were all over this runway.

One of the best conversations and interviews of fashion week for me was with MTV’s Girl Code Tanisha Long. I didn’t know much about her before the interview but the interview actually turned into a conversation that lasted even after the cameras were off. She was literally the funniest, coolest and most down-to-earth person I ever met. I was talking to this girl as if she was an old friend from school and we hadn’t seen each other in ages and picked up exactly where we left off. Check out her hilarity in the video!

Grungy Gentlemen NYFW SS2015

Posted on: Friday, September 12, 2014


So Grungy Gentlemen, where do I begin? Number 1, Jace Lipstein, the CEO, is a blogger turned designer and thats the part that I loved the most. Number 2, which should really be number 1 for me, was the male models he had in this show. I’ve only been into womens wear when it comes to fashion so I never really thought twice about male models or menswear in general, unless I’m trying to make over my boyfriend. But they literally cast some of the hottest most gorgeous men I had ever seen, lol. It was such a distraction from what we were there to do, cover the show.

Ok but on to the fashion, it was exactly as the name stated, very gentlemen like with well fitted blazers and then a little bit of grunge with the hoodie underneath or a grungy worn in pair of jeans. Yes yes yesssss! Loved every thing about this show. See my interview above featuring a quick blurb from NY Knicks JR Smith.

So here is a designer who has truly captured the essence and beauty of a woman. I love how elegant and graceful everything in his collection was. There were even ready to wear work wear pieces, like power suits with statement buttons, taking the boredom out of plain suits. The cuts of the suits, with the blazer opening at the front even while buttoned I thought was the best.

Puerto Rican born Stella Nolasco gave you what you came for and THEN some. I loved the delicate details of the dresses, the jumpsuits and all the lace that was tastefully draped on the body. The large skirts, the metallic colors, the iridescent tones of the fabric really held your eye as the model walked by. Her designs were sexy and confident and told the story of a woman who knew exactly who she is and what she wants. I thoroughly enjoyed her collection to the very end. See my interview and the full show here.
