* Aztec Skirt from Los Angeles Boutique
*Aldo Wooden Wedges

Some fun in Williamsburg with my BFF Tamara!  We were on our way to take some photos and interview people for Zaden Rowe; for Williamsburg Fashion Week, a more eclectic take on fashion.  We stopped in front of this light pole thing to take some pics haha.  All I remember is ending up at some weak ass rave in the night, but we had fun none the less. Tamara's pants are amazing!! I love bell bottoms and the flare is so back in style, but only the really talented mothafuckas can pull it off and where it in an outfit that works! She looked straight out of the 70s! And there is always a funny story about how we acquire our beautiful wonderful clothing ;)

 I have not posted on my blog in a while. Life has been pretty hectic. Very busy life at the showroom, it consumes my time and my energy.  Been dealing with a lot of bullshit from the earlier months, but finally its over. Haha or so I hope lol.... But anyways, here are some pictures from the BEAUTIFUL showroom that I intern at!  Joey Showroom is owned by the wonderful Joseph Guintoli.  It is a multi designer showroom, with collections and designers from all over the world. We are talking about world renown talent here, talented people who have worked with Prada and an owner of Levis Clothing.  The collections in the showroom are, Camilla, House of Harlow, Nicole Romano, Laruicci, Piper Gore, Maggie Ward, Calvin Rucker, Black Halo, Renzo + Kai, Suboo and Mara and Mine.

  I wish I was rich, because I want to be able to buy everything in the showroom! The perks about being an intern are, we get to purchase pieces at the WHOLESALE PRICE, YAY!!! I also realized I rather pay more money for beautiful quality clothing, than something cheap.  Design is a goddamn art and why not pay for something that you truly want! I rather be original and have quality expensive pieces in my wardrobe. I want something that will last forever.

 New York Fashion Week has been a blast!!  So many things to update my blog with, I know it has been forever.  I  was occupied all summer with working at a slow dead end retail store and preparing for my move to New York city.  But I made it, with my girls Iris and Tamara.  Drama ensued of course with a demon that shall remain nameless, but the negativity is finally gone.  I came here to work and to make money, I do not have time to do anything else, except that.  I started off interning for an eCommerce website called, Zaden Row.  I did street blogging at NYFW!  While I was out, Vogue Italia thought I had great style and decided to take my picture and put it on their website.  I was honored!! Here is the link
 Then next my gyal Tamara and I got photographed for Seventeen Magazine for street style.  What another crazy honor that was. Ha, I remember reading seventeen when I was younger, never thought I'd be on the website one day! Crazy!  Here's the link
 I have also met so many amazing people already.  For example, Fashion Blogger Rumi Neely, Kyle Anderson; the Accessories Editor of Marie Claire, Fashion Writer Godfrey Deeny and Fashion Blogger Bryanboy. All of it has a whirl wind and I cannot wait for what is up next!!

Next post will include images of Rumi Neely and Kyle Anderson!!

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 RTW

*All images from www.style.com

  So which one are you today? America's leading lady? America's socialite? America's Hollywood Woman? America's working lady? Or are you America's glitz and glamor?  Well Oscar did it all in this Spring 2013 ready to wear collection.  The collection is filled with some of the most beautiful lace work I have ever seen to date.  The re-embroidery of the lace ribbon to the dresses and skirts, gave the pieces a modern feel.  It was as if it was graffiti, or an artist's canvas.  The ball gowns are nothing but short of impressive.  My two favorite pieces would have to be one, the shimmering bead tunic and pants.  What a statement! And second would be the ostrich feather peplum bustier and shorts.  What a wonder that outfit is.  I'm a vegetarian, but honestly that outfit is something I need in my wardrobe.... Whoops.

  Oscar de la Renta is the definition of sophistication in America.  He has blessed the design world for decades and will continue to do so.  Who would America have to them to keep it classy?  Obviously Oscar.

3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2013 RTW

   Let's see where this collection took me.  Instantly the first thing I thought of was mix 'n' match.  It was a quite nostalgic collection from the 90s, with plaids and floral patterns together and ripped jeans.  Phillip even named the shoes after Shirley and Courtney.  But it still had a modern twist to it as well.  The collection was inspired by a "Cut-Up" technique, which means to cut up texts and put them back together in a different order.  The technique was made famous by Williams S Burroughs, but originated from the Dadaists.  If we take it back to musicians like, Davie Bowie and Kurt Cobain, they were ones to use this techniques in fashion.  As you can see throughout the whole 3.1 Phillip Lim collection, it was evident that see-through layering is what needs to be for Spring 2013.  My favorite image from the collection was image two.  I am digging the see-through plaid!  Let's see if women jump on the risky trend.  Ain't nothing wrong with a see-through mix 'n' match piece!

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2013 RTW

* All images from www.style.com

  Here we are, New York Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2013 collections.  I was blessed this year to actually be apart of NYFW and all the hype.  As you know, coming from  Toronto, Ontario, Canada and to see it all first hand. None other than the ridiculously amazing Alexander Wang.  I am a die hard Wang fan and each collection just gets better and better.  Mr Wang said, "I wanted to pull garments apart and experiment with volume".  The pieces were cutouts, that were right angles and were held by an invisible fish line embroidery.  The strong emphasis that is now added to a simple t-shirt dress or sports jacket.  It is all about re-construction of the pieces, that make them flow so effortless on the models.  Even though the colors are the typical black, white, beige and silver, the finale seemed to prove otherwise.  The amazon models came out in their dresses; as the lights dimmed it proved to be that the pieces were in fact glow in the dark!  If Alexander Wang isn't New York's futuristic designer, I don't know who is.


Alexander McQueen Resort 2013

   Here it is, the Alexander McQueen Resort collection, designed by Sarah Burton.  Burton took a lot of inspiraiton from David Bowie's most outrageous time, which was the 70s.  As you can see the notable use of prints on the clothing and pyschedellic shapes and stripes for the collection.  Of course there are bold cuts and the proportions are also very extreme, with high waistline, elongated leg and emphasis on the torso as well.  I have to say my favourite piece is image 1.  I LOVE WIDE LEG, but the way Burton tailored all the pant suits is bold and structured!  Of course every McQueen collection stands out, whether for the cuts or prints, it is always so visually pleasing!  The embroidery for image 5 on the jacket is ridiculous, all bead-work how amazing is that, such a must-have!
