This was the first year that Tropfest, a short film and music festival, being held in Brooklyn. Last year they had it at Bryant Park, but this year decided to change location to Prospect Park. I had so much fun at this festival! The bands were great and the short films were so entertaining. I went with two of my friends and we ended up staying until the very end because the films were just that good! This year the theme was “bridge” and they played 16 short films that incorporated the idea of bridge. I was blown away at the amazing talent and cannot wait until next year’s Tropfest with KISS as the theme. To be honest, I was feeling a bit inspired as well! The first place prize is $20,000, after all…
Fashion festival is super easygoing and fun, especially in Brooklyn. I kept it simple, especially with the heat, and paired a floral bodysuit with a pair of high-waisted Levi’s shorts that I got while thrifting last summer. I like to wear a belt with a simple outfit like this to tie it altogether. I wore my printed Keds and a couple fun bangles and then called it a day. 🙂🙂
Liev Schreiber was the host of Tropfest and he arrived with beautiful Naomi Watts. While getting a quick bite to eat, I stumbled upon the “black carpet” and took a few paparazzi snapshots of the GORGEOUS couple!
Be sure to join in the fun next year at Tropfest NY, “The Worlds Largest Short Film Festival” and if you can’t then click the below link to recap the short films that were featured!
Last night I attended a fab event in Chelsea for http://www.rankandstyle.com. The event was located in a super chic lounge in Chelsea. Rank and Style had a few signature drinks and gave out fab manicure’s provided by Manicube! I left the party with a new nail color (Fiesta by Essie) and an amazing gift bag with lots of goodies from some of the Top Ten lists.
A very easy sign up on the site and you just like that your shopping becomes simple and easy. They bring you the top ten lists for beauty products, fashion trends, and more. You can even request a list for them to make for you! How personalized is that?? I love it! Also, there is one beauty list and one fashion list per week that way you get the best of both worlds. I think this is a very innovative and smart way to find that perfect product for your needs. I definitely get overwhelmed by the selections when I go shopping (especially for beauty products!) with marketing and all of the fancy labeling.. how do you choose?! This website simplifies all of that for you, and you’re left with a comforting feeling knowing your next purchase is “top ten” approved! 😉 Doesn’t get any better than that!
This link will give you more information on how the magic happens 🙂
Last night I attended an event at the Piperlime SoHo Pop UP store featuring “Song of Style” blogger and fashionista, Aimee Song. (www.songofstyle.com). The event was really fun and unique! I had a great time mingling with PopSugar and other fab ladies at the event. Aimee was super friendly and chatted with everyone.
Also, they had the cutest little treats for us to nibble on while we were shopping/mingling. A churro (fried dough sprinkled with sugar and cinnamin) hanging from an umbrella! Strawberry, rhubarb popsicles and rosemary flavored ice-cream sandwiches were just some of my faves from this Piperlime Event in SoHo. Oh, cannot forget the oyster cart with fresh oysters ready to be served. My blogger friend, MDoll, loved that part! Check her out on http://www.mdollnyc.com
I kept my outfit fun and chic- pairing my favorite American Apparel striped top with my neon pink trousers from H&M. Love the stripe simplicity with a bright, pop color! Accessories I kept simple with simple studs and two yellow bangles. Of course, my neon jelly’s were on my feet, keeping me comfy and pulled the look together!
Last week I went to OUT NYC, a trendy hotel that just opened their restaurant KTCHN. The event was very fun and a great place for networking. If you were in NYC last week then you know how beautiful (and humid) the weather was! My curly locks had to be put up in a tight bun and that flow-y maxi dress was the perfect fit for this kind of night. This maxi dress is my favorite! I got it last year from BEBE and am absolutely in love with how comfortable it is. Plus, the print is so colorful and fab that I don’t need much accessories. I paired it with long tassel earrings to match the hint of crochet in the dress and I was set for the night!
