Kenley Collins “Marilyn Monroe” Collection Launch at Slapback Brooklyn!


Image by Bryan Sansivero

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.
