NYFW: Lulu’s Style Studio and the Empire hotel!

It is New York fashion week and last friday I was invited to Lulu’s Style Studio event in Soho. I am realizing I love blogger events a little more than I love shows lol and I guess it is because it is more personal and I get to be inspired by people off the runway. I do like shows though, don’t get me wrong, I just love even more to be able to interact with people. I invited my aunt Alex to this event and we were in awe of the pretty decor Lulu created at this venue. There were flowers everywhere, faux grass on the ground, a water fountain, and tables full of pretty purple cupcakes and bottles courtesy of Hpnotiq. The place was flooded with fashion bloggers from all over the world mingling and networking whilst enjoying the great goodies that were being given away at makeup concessions. I actually bumped into a few people I already knew like my friends Danielle and Christina. I was so glad I got to see them as I haven’t had the chance to for a while. What made this event even more amazing is that we were given a ticket with a number and with it we were able to go into the Lulu boutique and take one item for free. There were clothes and bags everywhere and everyone was so excited once they got their turn to rummage through the goods. Danielle got a cute top and I think Christine got a purse. I managed to snag myself a really cool avant-garde red dress and my aunt found herself a cute jacket. We couldn’t have been more thankful for such a wonderful event. Lulu’s did such a great job bringing us bloggers together and made sure we all had a great time and left with wonderful goodies!

After Lulu’s I was going to go to Bloggers Night Out but took a detour to visit my friend Sheila at the Empire hotel for a small fashion show. That part of our night was kind of a buzz kill because the Empire hotel is bleh. If it wasn’t for my aunt and her fun personality, I would have went home right away. I enjoyed her company very much and realized how much I really miss my family. It was a really cool day. Check out more details inside!

PRADA SPRING/SUMMER 2012 WOMEN’S ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN!!

Prada’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection is just tugging at my heart-strings. The entire collection is inspired by mid-century fashion and I am absolutely in LOVE. I mean, my attraction to this collection is a no brainer since I follow the rockabilly culture religiously. I am just glad Prada did a great job exuding the aesthetic of an era I love. I am going to do everything in my power to have some of these pieces in my collection of vintage and vintage-inspired threads! I am so impressed and excited for Spring/Summer! Bravo Prada, Bravo!
