5 Things I Learned as a First-Time Bridesmaid

A year ago, I was asked by my best friend, Maura Rose (well, Smith), to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. She’d just gotten engaged to the guy we all knew she’d be with for the rest of her life. And I got the call early in the morning. I remember exactly where I was […]

NYFW: S/S 2014

NYFW: S/S 2014

This season of New York Fashion Week was literally a non-stop span of 8 days in which I got no sleep and Instgrammed, Tweeted, and Facebooked my tail off…all in 6-inch heels, of course. My feet are totally paying the price, but the experience sparked a renewal of appreciation for designers and their craft…and an […]

Fun, Fearless (and Fashionable) at Cosmo for Latinas

For those of you who don’t know, Cosmo for Latinas held its first ever Fun, Fearless Latina Awards last month. I didn’t actually have a direct hand in selecting our Fun, Fearless Award winners, but after attending the luncheon to honor all these beautiful ladies (and one gent!), I have to say, the CFL team […]

My Swoon over Soon: 2013 Parsons EOY Fashion Show

After attending FIT’s Senior Fashion Show, I went to check out what the students at Parsons–another fashion school in the city–had to offer. A few differences between the two shows: Number of looks: FIT – 90 | Parsons-150 (yes, 150) Guest Speaker: FIT – n/a | Parsons – Patrick Robinson (yes, Patrick Robinson) One thing […]

The Future of Fashion: 2013 FIT Senior Fashion Show

There is nothing like seeing your hard work on public display for the masses to appreciate. Especially if it’s your life’s work, your dream, your passion, etc. Believe me, I know firsthand.

Ring the Alarm: Spring-A-Ding-Ding

Ring the Alarm: Spring-A-Ding-Ding

It finally (finally!) feels like Spring. And so I rung the alarm at the Spring-A-Ding-Ding What to Wear Fashion Show in Dallas. Hosted by DFW Style Daily, the show featured upcoming spring trends to look out for this season, from the Loft, Gap, and other favorite street style spots. But it wasn’t only the looks […]

Brooklyn Fashion Week{end} F/W 2013: Day 4

Aesthetics are a funny thing. On the last day of this season of Brooklyn Fashion Weekend, I got lost in the art of the lips…literally. In my best Kendrick Lamar voice: “This is the finale…” ### As always, like, share, and comment! And thanks so much for joining me on the BKFW ride! I’ll give […]

Brooklyn Fashion Week{end} F/W 2013: Day 3

Brooklyn Fashion Week{end} F/W 2013: Day 3

Brooklyn Fashion Weekend stepped it up a notch for the Saturday night showcase. My eye was a little overwhelmed with options. I had to choose wisely. That said, though fashion shows are mainly about the clothes, it is a little known fact that hair and makeup make or break the look. So, I got in everyone’s face […]

Brooklyn Fashion Week{end} F/W 2013: Day 2

So I know I told you on Day 1 to “follow along as I show you what caught my eye…and hopefully you’ll see why.” Well, Day 2 of Brooklyn Fashion Weekend was definitely eye-candy FULL. The looks adorning the runway ranged from men in skirts to women in barely-there swimwear. Oh, and there was a […]
