V.V x TIMEOUT NY MAGAZINE’S Most Stylish New Yorkers!
I am in TimeOut NY Magazines “Most Stylish New Yorkers” February 10-16, 2011 Issue.
I was contacted by TimeOut NY Magazine a month or 2 ago to be a part of their “Most stylish New Yorkers” Issue and I was ecstatic! Year after year people would always tell me, “how is it that TimeOut Magazine hasn’t found you for their most stylish New Yorkers issue yet?”. I would just shrug and respond “I don’t know”, I guess I didn’t think it was a big deal that I was never in the issue but now I can tell them all that I finally made it, that Timeout finally found me. It was such an awesome experience and the Timeout staff were professional, informative, and fun to work with. I chose 3 looks and my goal was to show my versatility. I wanted to show the world that I am limitless when it comes to fashion. I wish I had more time to prepare as it was a very hectic week but overall I am happy with the results. I feel so fortunate and am so glad that I wasnt the only one that got chosen for this issue, my friends made it too! My two favorite red-heads of NYC Valissa Yoe and Kerin Rose also made the issue along with my favorite pharaoh Omar Alexander Figeroa.
On page 18 of TimeOut NY Magazine is a photo of me in a Betsey Johnson dress, a vintage hat, and my Dolce and Gabanna Victorian pumps.
Inside you can see a full online story with a run down of my looks, behind the scenes footage, and photos of my friends who also made the issue.
Behind the Scenes
I have to thank my right hand Ingrid Campos for assisting me with my crazy wardrobe at the shoot. I love her. I was so disorganized. She also shot behind the scenes footage with my camera.
1st look. Victorian Pinup.
I showcased this look to show people my pinup side. I am always in cocktail, swing, and wiggle dresses.
2nd Look. Cleopatra in Versace.
This look is my sexier side. I wanted to showcase my love for curve hugging dresses and leopard prints. I also wanted to show my versatility with the wig. I love wigs and have been experimenting with them along with hair pieces for a while now.
3rd look. Clockwork Orange.
This is my tomboy look. I like to do this look a lot, but in different ways. Sometimes I like to look androgynous but still keep my femininity.
My friends who also made the issue!
They couldn’t have picked a better trio to be a part of this issue! Personally, they are and have always been my favorite fashionistas/Fashionistos too!

Also Congrats to everyone else who made it in the Magazine!
