IMG_5451It has been almost a month of traveling all over the country and I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. Traveling really does help you grow, I have learned so much in the past month about myself and others and have made new friends along the way. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to head to my hometown, New York, with Pinup Girl Clothing (the company I work for).   Laura Byrnes (@Laurabyrnes), Micheline Pitt (@Michelinepitt), and I took over NYFW with a powerful message “Beauty is not a dress size” and brought together all of our East Coast Pugsters for a weekend to remember. As someone who is an advocate of body positivity, I was so happy to contribute to such an event. I met so many beautiful and sweet women of all shapes, sizes, and colors and they ALL looked gorgeous in their PUG pieces. It is really amazing to see how clothes can make us feel, especially Pinup Girl Clothing. Everyone looked radiant and confident as they posed for street style photographers at Lincoln center. They all wore their gifted PUG buttons that said “Couture for Every Body” and “All women are beautiful”. It brought be great joy to see how great they felt getting their photos taken and published all over social media outlets in their pug pieces whilst spreading a positive message.

The icing on the cake was that I got to see my family and friends. I miss them ALL the time and I cannot tell you how happy I was to be able to see them and have them have so much fun attending the events PUG planned for NYFW.

On the first day of PUG NYFW we had our first meet and greet at Lincoln center where we got to meet so many glamorous pugsters who were excited to meet Laura, Micheline, and I. We all definitely created a buzz because photographers kept snapping away at our outfits! Micheline, Laura, and I looked like we were going to a funeral glamorously drenched in black PUG pieces. I wore the Glamour Ghoul dress in black and white stripes because..well..its PRETTY AMAZING. And I complimented the outfit with some vintage accessories like my black gloves, black purse, and hat. For shoes I wore my Christian Louboutin Maryl pumps. We stood at the Mark Hotel and I happened to match their gorgeous floors. If I ever go back to NY and book a hotel, it would be the Mark. Not just because the service was amazing but because it looked like Tim Burton designed it lol. It was cool that we got to head back there with the pugsters after Lincoln center for drinks at the Mark Bar. We all had a blast with our awesome cocktails in hand and I can promise we all made some long-term friendships!
