DAY 3 NYFW

Hello All,

 

Day 3 NYFW. I was able to relax and venture from the show. I was able to go to Williamsburg, NY. A more hip crowd for shopping at edgy vintage stores, you want to have a drink, or chill for an afternoon. Williamsburg is the place for some fun times.

 

This year was a bit different, I didn’t get into as many shows as I wanted to. I was a little bummed. I think that due to the covid many designers were limiting the capacity of attendees. I am hoping next season will be a little better. I attended the flying solo fashion show. Flying solo is collective brand of independent emerging designers that are upcoming in the fashion industry. The flying solo had five different shows with all different designers. During the shows, it was short collections that gave you a taste of what is to come for that particular designers. It kept you guessing what is next?!?!

The venue fell short in comparison of the collective designers. It was snowing that day for some models were carefully trying to get off the runway. As the runway was slippery and hazardous for the models that walk on the runway. I was pleasantly surprised that no models fell on the runway. As you know, the show must go on whether the weather permits snow or rain. I could say that my photos came out really cool with the snow effect. I was so cold and made sure I wore layers and thermal underneath my clothes. I refuse to be shriving at the fashion show.

 

 

Here are my photos from the fashion show:

NYFW: DAY 2

Hello All,

 

Day 2 of NYFW. I had a blast. the weather was warm for the first few days. It definitely felt like spring but it went back to winter on Sunday and Monday. Back to the fashion shows, I went to the Tiffany Brown show a luxury clothing brand. Her collection was reinvented with items that were more edgy and sexier. Which you can appreciate for the more edgy women. It definitely was a signature brown collection that had all the brown hues you need in your wardrobe. On the runway, you can find chocolate brown, mustard, burnt orange, gold, rust, fur sash, and elegant gowns. Overall, the collection was simple and elegant pieces from leather, matte fabric to the perfect styling pieces. Honestly, I think I could been one of models as my outfit complimented her collection! lol

NYFW DAY 4

Hello All,

Last day of NYFW, I got in a few more photos and video content. I love creating new content for my blog. New York Fashion Week was bigger than ever this year. There were about 13 emerging black designers which was a first for New York Fashion Week. The Fashions shows were all through out the city. It was stricter rules with mandatory vaccination required to attend any of show venues.

Runway shows were not about the details. Mostly about elegance and the everyday ready to wear right on the runway. You will find collections that we’re romantic, athleisure, pant suits, and elegant gowns.

I was amazed about the attendees outfits some attendees were in gowns like they are going to a Gala. Other attendees opting for comfort by wearing skirts with converse boots. I wore pieces that were dressy and still being fashionable. Every time, I will wear shoes that hurt my feet not realizing I will be walking a few blocks everywhere. Next year, I will definitely copy that lady who wore the skirt with converse boots for a more of a comfy look.

If you want to go new york fashion week get your schedule ready, and prepare looks by trying on your looks, and plan to go with a group or one friend who loves fashion. I planned and worked with one of my fashion friends to partner with to keep myself accountable in this fashion industry. Next year, I will come with the Fashion and team up with a few other fashion friends and collaborating with other fashion photographers!

 

See you next year NYFW!

NYFW: Day 2

Hello All,

I am back and attending New York Fashion. I love going to fashion week it is place that i can be myself.

 

Every-time I attend I learn so much. What I have learned during this fashion week:

  1. Being around fashion minded people makes me get my fashion inspiration
  2. Fashion week never sleeps
  3. Plan your looks beside on how much your going to be walking. Wear flats as  much as possible.
  4. Take a break from Fashion week go eat with friends and enjoy all of what NYC has to offer.
  5. Keep yourself hydrated and drink a lots of water
  6. Have fun and get inspired

When I decided to come back to fashion week this year. I didn’t think it would be same due to the pandemic. Fashion week seems more strict with having vaccinated cards on hand. Ultimately, keeping everyone safe. I had such a good time meeting new people and hang out with old friends. New York Fashion Week is place to get your fashion inspiration but being in element that breathes fashion. Many individuals have different styles and aesthetics still they put together an outfit in their sleep.

I can’t wait for fashion week next year! Enjoy the photos from fashion week.

Matchy Matchy by WHO WHAT WEAR….

Hello All,

 

The Matchy Matchy look is here to stay! A color uniform can convey a clear message that you want a symmetric color pattern. As I wear my look from Who What Wear a floral blouse and pumps, I can say I am conveying that I want a look that is paired well  together.  And that is in a nut shell the way I put my looks together. Before hand, I will put a look together the night before and I have even gotten better the day of I can whip up a complete look. A head of time, I will think about the color pallette and the colors that will be paired in the same color family.  I will study my looks and have purchased a family color wheel that has helped me through my fashion career. I knew that i wanted to wear jeans so i opted for black jeans. As we all know black literally goes with anything but black to me is more chic.

A recurring theme on this blog has been the matchy matchy look. You can definitely organize your closet with similar color palettes. This will make your life so much easier and effortless in getting ready. It can be a hassle thinking of new looks that are different but with the matchy matchy look you can try without trying. It is the best way to update your wardrobe too!

 

I have heard alot of people saying, “Just don’t wear anything”. This statement is so true. Make your outfits standout by putting more of an effort in your outfit choices. Trust me people will notice and want to find out the secrets. You can tell them fitsonme has a formula for the matchy matchy look that actually works for anyone’s wardrobe!

How would you wear this matchy-matchy look?

FASHIONNOVA SWEATER DRESS….

Hello All,

We are back at again with fitsonme X the curvy cookie collaboration. the curvy cookie and I are always searching for looks for the season. We saw many looks on Fashionnova but were so happy with this look.

 

A sweater dress is a must-have in your closet. These are five reason you need a sweater dress in your wardrobe:

1.      Versatile-You can pair it with short or long boots. It is such a confrontable piece that you can worn in so many ways. I decided to wear this sweater dress from fashionnova with some jessica simpson color blocking snake boots.
2.      Comfortable-This sweater dress is so comfrontable and on repeat!


3.      Keeps you warm-Since it has gotten a bit colder a sweater dress will definitely keep you warm. I like that the sweater dress is made out of sweater material which super stylish at the same time keeps you warm.  That is a winner!


4.      Works with any body type- A sweater dress is a must-have. Depending on your body type, you can find a sweater dress that hugs your hips or more of a loose fit. On the other hand, you can find a sweater dress that zips up, buttons up in the front, or it can have built in sweater belt. Regardless, you will find a sweater dress in many styles and trends.


5.      Seasonal Item-The sweater dress you can wear it in the fall season and into the winter season. You can add maybe a shirt underneath or keep the cardigan that is paired with this look. I like the fact you do not have to find a cardigan it has a matching cardigan that works well with this sweater tube dress. I love it!

How about you go to Fashionnova and find you a sweater dress that works for your body type. Not only that you will be stylish during this winter season!

MATCHING SETS FEATURING FASHIONNOVA

A timely piece that will never get out of style is the matching sets. The matching set trends will come in different colors and styles. I feel like you can play around with matching sets but still make them sophisticated & chic. In my opinion, matching sets are the best go to look that can help you get ready in a jiffy.

 

In styling your matching set from fashionnova you can find pieces that will pair well with your look. Find a pair of chic shoes, a cool bag, nice pair of sunnies, and beautiful statement piece necklace. In finding inspiration search for streetstyle looks that are cool hues depending on the season. I picked this cool brown hue from fashionnova it reminded me of the fall or winter season. This matching set can be worn dressed up or down whether your at brunch or a night out. And hence the name of fashionnova matching set is called net nights pant set.

This look can be worn for a night out with friends, brunch, or a doing some errands. You will look cute wherever you go and put together & stylish.

Kangol X H&M

Hello All,

This look was fab. I am not really into laid-back looks. If you noticed, I wear tailored, looks that fit my body or combination of sophisticated and street style wear. Although, it is not my thing I decided to do this cool collaboration with the curvy cookie. She suggested that Kangol was selling some items on H&M and I was so into the selections. I picked a few more items that would go with my aesthetics. I cannot wait for you all to see how I put these looks together.


I decided to get a Kangol sweater dress, let me tell you this dress is so comfortable. You can wear this dress all day long and not want to take it off. There is some items that I have worn that I am running to go home and change my look. This dress is so worth it! I paired this dress with the Kangol hat, socks, and my sparkly boots. Let me tell you, we shot this look in Chinatown dc and everyone was like so intrigued by our look. We were getting honking horns and whistles all around downtown dc. I was happy to find a look that was edgy and sporty and still fit both of our body types.


It can be hard to find looks that work for both a plus size and regular size women like our selves. I have found that they do not make enough items for plus size women. It has to be oversight on their part that not having enough inventory for plus size women. I have seen plus-size women rocking looks better than regular size women do. Many plus size women are aware of their body type and are confident in what works for their body type. Since I have started this collaboration, I have so much appreciation for all body types and we all love clothes the same way. No matter what size or shape we are.

 

How would you wear this Kangol dress?
