Summer Lovin’ Photo Shoot

Although it is the start of my favorite fashion season, Fall, I still am missing summer time! I decided to share a fun photo shoot I did this summer in Brooklyn, NY. The set was in DUMBO, which is an area of Brooklyn overlooking Manhattan. The beautiful bridge is right behind me and I had an amazing time soaking up the sun, the views, and most importantly the summer time! You will be missed, summer ❤

I kept my outfit flirty and fun to go with my mood of the day. H&M neon green tank tucked into my favorite mid-waisted shorts from Forever21! (such a great find) I accessorized with  colorful bangles I got from the boutique store, Steps, in NYC and bright cobalt blue nails. (Love this color, easily adds a pop of color to any outfit) Also, a gifted handmade necklace from Ghana and my mirrored blue sunnies.

Religion Clothing Pop Up Shop Event

A few days ago I attended a pop up shop event in the Lower East Side with my stylist friend, Elisha. I love finding out about new brands and this specific one started in London. We both met the designer behind Religion and got to chat with him for a little. Open bar was sponsored by Ty Ku Liqueur. The event also did a collab. with an amazing artist, The Black Soft. The combination of the dark paintings went along very well with the ambiance and the clothing. Religion is based on black, white, pops of maroon, and grey. The color scheme is simple but the details are impeccable.

Some pictures of my favorite items from the pop-up shop, the amazing artwork, and a taxi poster I found outside (that I thought was so fun!) :

SoHo Event with Aimee Song at Piperlime

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!

Coachella, see you soon

Last weekend was the first weekend of Coachella in California and the outfits were everything and more! Personally, I’ve never been but next year it’s on my list of summer music festivals. I think my favorite part of Coachella is the style! It’s my favorite combination of boho, chic, fringe, southwestern, and free spirit. Bloggers, actors, models, musicians, and more are always on the scene at Coachella. Check out some of my favorite’s from last weekend… and Coachella 2014 I will so see you soon! Fringe and all ~

NY Fashion Week Recap 2013!

Hey Naturalista’s! After a whirlwind of NYFW events I finally was able to compile some of my fav. looks and times from the shows I was able to attend with my dear friend and Blogger, Martha Luna (www.mdollnyc.com) Check her blog out!

NYFW was everything I imagined and more! It was a jam-packed day full of shows back to back and many, many familiar faces in the fashion industry. Super great place to network, too. I met a lot of designers, bloggers, videographers, models, and more!! Everyone was just so friendly and super sweet. Really just trying to get their business card out there and get their name out to as many ppl possible.

Besides the free goodies and VIP, my favorite part was def. the actual runway shows. The music and papparazzi really set the vibe to the show. As the models walked out on the runway wearing some of the most beautiful designs for Fall I began to feel what living out a dream really feels like. It was truly everything I had anticipated and more! My favorite show was the Monique Lhullier show, I didn’t get good pics b/c I was so just so intrigued and in the moment. PS. the shows are super short! They last about 8-12 minutes. So can you imagine? Working on a line for about 6 months for a 10 min. presentation with a million ppl watching?? Talk about pressure!

Check out some of pics. to give you a bit of what I felt on Day three of NYFW at Lincoln Center, NYC.

Fashion Night Out- NYC

September 6th kicked off NYFW with the fab and glamorous event, FNO. This event celebrated its fourth year on Thursday and impressed me even more than last years. This year I decided on the Meatpacking District because the events were just not to be missed. My night started with a casual walk through the Maybelline tents, getting some pics taken by bloggers while sipping on yummy champagne. The streets were crowded and the lines were long with beautiful fashionista’s stylin’ on so many levels! The fashion was absolute craziness, and I loved every outfit!! This is another reason I love this event, you get to showcase your own style and uniqueness. Nothing can beat that, especially in the fashion home of NYC.

I decided on a wide leg coral jumper with gold accessories and a wedge shoe. I already knew DVF’s event was going to be bumpin’ with Solange Knowles on the DJ set so I was readyyyyy! Once getting in Diane Von Furstenberg’s store the music was loud, the drinks were flowing, and the desserts were delish. Super great networking event with photographers, models, and bloggers. I had a blast dancing the night away with my naturalista fashionista’s and can’t wait until next years event!!
