Almost 29 Rooms

.About 5 hours….that’s how long we: me and the hundreds of ppl waited to get into Refinery 29’s 29Rooms. 29Rooms is an art & fashion fun house made up with celebrity collaborations steaming from topics of beauty, music, the environment, etc; with each room carrying a different theme. The doors opened at 11am and I got there at 12. I already knew I was going to wait about 2 hour to get it but that was a mental understatement. The line wrapped around the building in a loop and just like every pop-up experience I kept telling myself with the sun beating down on body, the motto: YOLO! Literally about 30 mins from the entrance I was giving a scratch card to hopefully skip the line. Sure enough, blessed from the heavens and foot gods below it was the winning card. Extremely excited I gather the people around me who I chatted with for the 5 hours to skip the line and race inside….”WE MADE IT!!!!” We all screamed & took celebratory pics but once we entered I caught a glimpse of something as I  stared into the main hall…MORE FUCKING LINES!!! dsc_47941

To be honest it wasn’t that bad but it’s just the freaking principal!!!  Now the main question of this entire experience: Was it worth it?
Yes: because I met some really cool people, 29Rooms was definitely something to be seen and I can say I went & never have to go again & No: because after all of it I didn’t get to see all 29 rooms because of more fucking lines and the memory magically got misplaced after  that so I could post when I wanted  but I found it. So here are the rooms I made it to…Enjoy!!!

 

The Period Project!!!

I call it a great day when someone else cares about my period just as much as I hate having one. Points to The Pop Up Period Shop. An idea created by a young lady named Sarah M. She called for “A space where we can feel comfortable and respected during an otherwise shifty time of the month”. And what a great I idea it was!

The place felt welcoming, comforting and filled with liners, pads and tampons.THANK YOU KOTEX!!!

There was ice cream, a photo both, comfy couches, an artistic tampons hanging from the ceiling, cool nail art, a collection of clothing showing periods some love, a DJ and a wall of chocolate…A fucking wall of chocolate!!!

I honestly didn’t want to leave and I could have stayed but another adventure called. If I’m correct it’s a traveling pop-up shop so look for then in a town, city or area.

No Ordinary Hat!

Happy Easter!!! or at least it was lol I ventured onto the streets to discover the amazing Easter Parade (very loose with the parade word). It was basically the shutting down  of  49st  to 57st on with 5th Ave to let the beauty of colorful, elegant, creative and extravagantly made hats.There were hundreds of people out dressed in their Sundays best walking in either direction taking loads pictures and gazing at this years hat master pieces. I will say it was definitely worth forcefully waking myself up outta my drunken stupor to attend. I even want to show my creative skills and make my own hat to parade with down the streets for next year.Wish me with that luck guys. You can find some more awesome creations HERE .

Fashion Week NYC:Loom Loop

Pretty itty bitty little thing called butterflies where the main inspiration of this seasons collection by Polly Ho of Loom Loop. Butterflies printed everything from maxi dresses to leggings and even trench coats.I felt the head piece  and eye glasses worn added an extra bit of edge to it.I thought this collection was very visually stimulating.  Enjoy!

Fashion Week NYC: Yohanix

Yes I Am Late…But it’s Fashion Week somewhere in the world.

I call it pure SEXY!!!  There’s something about black leather that’s just sexy period. Yohanix by Tae-keun Kim is a collection comprised of all sorts of lovely goodies. I loved, loved, LOVED the leather skirts: particularly this little number right below.DSC_9595

I think zippers are the new IT add-on to clothing because there was no shortage of them here. Zipper placement was key from turning a very beautiful detailed pencil skirt for maybe the work place into a super sexy skirt exposing as much thigh meat as you personally could handle for a night out on the town. There were so many pieces that I would totally snatch like the leather moto jacket with fur sleeves, a black textured trench coat w/ belt and especially the black socks with gold pom poms. I could go on & on but I will let the pictures to the talking. Enjoy!!!

 

 

Fashion Week NYC: Kenneth Ning

It’s a Ning Thing.
I like thing that express some sort of mood and that what Kenneth Ning did for me. His collection reminded me of my past inner goth moment but with a much more fashionable approach. The coats and jackets were my favorites. The detailing with the big zippers and sliver holes gave it that end.Another winning piece was a stand alone two piece suit posted dead front and center.

Fashion Week: Dexter Dexter Dexter

Bring in all the boys!!! Dexter Dexter Dexter was full of uniqueness. The mens collection came off to me as simple but very crisp cut, very neat, and very thoughtful. His tops consisted of dress shirt, sweaters, and long sleeve crew neck shirts with accents such as vest, scarfs and man bags. Dexter’s bottoms highlighted his top with someone models wear pants, some wearing just underwear and some wearing the noteworthy and what I call : The Man Skirt. Now I usually consider a kilt as a mans “skirt” and my insides normally scream “REAL MEN WEAR KILTS!!!” when seeing one worn. I like them…I really really like them.

Fashion Week in NYC is in full swing! Enjoy ☺

Finally On Time!!!

So this post is the only one so far that will actually be on time. Yay me!!! (Im working in getting better at this) As of today Samsung is releasing its new wearable the Samsung Gear S2. This new sexy (yes it’s sexy) watch I’m in 2 different style the sport & the classic. At a party held by Refinery 29 & Samsung at its Soho studio, the watch was on full display along with drinks, finger foods, music and a photo booth. The new watch runs on android where so it is now able to be used on any android phone unlike it’s previous counter parts. They are also giving you the option to have a 3G data connection (only with the sport model) so you can use sim card, making that watch a full fledged phone. The classic model will be bluetooth only.Hopefully has a longer distance than normal  which was about 30 feet. One of its coolest is feature is the rotating dial on top which let you select app with just a turn to the right or a turn to the left. Just like most watches you’ll be able to make phone calls, respond to text messages and view emails & of course there will be an app store for watch dedicated applications. Over all the watch is a fun new gadget for tech lovers ranging at a price point from 299 to 400 (depending on which one you get). Will I get it?  Probably not because the way my pockets to setup…..lol Plus I already have a Gear 2 with a built in camera, so that new watch won’t see my wrist anytime soon unless someone wants to buy it for me  *Hint Hint*.

Metallic Make Way

Coppers, Golds & Silvers Oh My!!! Son Jung Wan has given metallic a new life. Not to bright, not to dull, and just bold enough. This was the first show that I went to that had men walk (I have been to 4 shows before this one). The collection was made up of  shorts, skirts, dresses, & pretty tops. If only I had the money I would be beyond fab everyday in the hood (I live in Brownsville :Google it). I loved it all!!!

Fashion Week NYC : Francesca Liberatore

Fall & Heart

Kelly Cutrone said Hi to me!!!! Well it was more like “Hi Guys” but it was only 4 of us standing there & I was part of said 4 so yeah, put that in you pocket! To me Francesca’s collection screamed “I’m ready for Fall”. Black and orange were the main colors of her pieces along with bits of cream, white, burgundy & glittered anatomically correct hearts. Sheer fabrics  & cut outs exposed skin, long coats &  dresses covered it up and all the while giving you pure sexy but classy. Power to the Body! As normal pics are below & check out the blog of the lovely Shannon Moody: Fashion Nexus ,who provided me with access to the amazing shows I attended.
