Kenley Collins “Marilyn Monroe” Collection Launch at Slapback Brooklyn!
A few weeks ago was the launch of Kenley Collins new Monroe Collection at Slapback in Brooklyn, one of my favorite rockabilly shops in New York. Of course I had to attend as I absolutely LOVE Kenley Collins and her amazing designs. I also love being able to see my friend and Slapback shop owner, Renee, whom I have adored since the first day we met 6-7 months ago. Renee and Kenley are 2 peas in a pod and I love hanging with both of them. Anyway, I have been anticipating the launch of Kenley’s collection when I saw her a few weeks prior to the event and she told me all about it. Not only is she an incredible designer but also a FIERCE singer/performer. This woman is a RIOT and it was awesome to see her do a live performance at the shop alongside red-hot Laura Rebel Angel. I had a blast and invited my friends Lourdes and Christina to check it out and we all left with something. Christina fell in love with the Kenley Collins pants and left with a pair and I bought the whole outfit and the checkered dress which fits like the cowbell dress I purchased a few months before that. I was so happy to add more Kenley Collins pieces to my collection. Every time I wear her pieces, I always get compliments. Everything she makes is a staple piece every girl should have in her closet. My friend Lourdes bought a cute top after driving my friend Renee crazy. I can’t really bring her anywhere lol, but everyone has that one friend who is a major pain in the butt. Another highlight of the day is that I met and shot with an amazing photographer named Bryan Sansivero just before arriving to the event. I was blown away by his images of me. I wore a vintage suit, belt, hat, shoes, and cat eye glasses and my own outfit shots don’t compare to his so I didn’t even bother including them in this post. Check it out inside.

I left with this Marilyn Monroe Mod Dress as it is the same cut of my other Kenley Collins cowbell dress I wear all the time. Love this pattern just as much! This awesome Kenley Collins Like It Hot crop top and matching pants were TO DIE FOR. The fit is incredible and I had to have it. The Like it hot pants have good stretch and the silky lining inside feels really nice. Love the crop top with this awesome Bombshell Boss high waisted skirt!
