You’re Invited to Goodwill Suits You – A Fashion Show Celebrating the Power of Work

Hey B.A.D. Girls! I am excited to share with you all that I will be participating as a blogger/stylist in this year’s Goodwill Suits You Fashion Show on October 1st, in honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month! For those of you not familiar with Goodwill; they are a not for profit organization that helps enhance the dignity and quality of life for individuals and families in need. They also have really awesome second hand clothing (thrift) stores where you can find great deals if you are into thrifting or in need of clothing at an affordable price. Thanks to my good friend, Kimberlee, I will be participating as a stylist and my job has been to meet with the models and help style them for the fashion show by selecting professional business attire found at Goodwill stores. Here is my styling session video with Richard at the Goodwill Boutique location on 72nd street! We want people to know that there are affordable options out there for them to get great business attire and work clothes without …

Project Subway SS 2014 Runway Show at Nolcha Fashion Week New York

I was really excited to attend the Project Subway runway competition which took place during New York Fashion Week as part of Nolcha Fashion Week which is a platform to showcase up and coming designers. The host of the event was none other than Jared, himself. He was super nervous to be hosting a fashion event, which he clearly knows nothing about lol, but it was still cool to have him there since he is the face of Subway. I became even more excited when I was seated directly across from one of my childhood idols, Mel B. (Scary Spice)! She was a part of the judging panel for the competition in which designers had to create pieces solely made out of materials found in a Subway restaurant. The four designers who competed for a years worth of Subway sandwiches and the winning title were Danilo Gabrielli (winner), Jennifer Henry, Mariana Valentina and Ainslee Bowers. The popular and most easily thought of material to use had to be napkins although I really appreciated the creativity an …

VOZ SS14 NYFW Runway Show

Handmade Luxury Meets Social Change  I was thrilled to attend the VOZ SS14 runway show during fashion week because I really love the brands movement to empower indigenous artisans and their art forms through collaborative fashion design.  Voz’s garments are hand made and feature premium quality natural and ecological fibers, hand dyed and woven to celebrate ancient traditions. The SS14 collection was filled with beautiful woven pieces, cotton and silk dresses and really pretty sweaters that looked so soft and cozy for the transition from winter to spring. Here is a video I took of the final walk during the show. The VOZ designers work intimately with artisans in communities in Southern Chile to envision, prototype and finalize the fashion collections. In turn, these artisans receive name credit and earn royalties for their designs featured in the collection. Seeing the clothes go down the runway live allowed me to really see the beautiful craftsmanship and the exquisite details. The pieces really are beautiful and I am excited to see how this brand  grows and expands …

NFL and Vogue Back To Football Style Event

On Tuesday I along with my blogger boo Kimberlee had the pleasure of attending a really fun fashion show hosted by Vogue and the NFL to celebrate their women’s NFL apparel line. The event hosted by Phillip Bloch took place in Grand Central Station and featured celebs such as Deborah Cox, Stacy Keibler, Vivica Fox and the legendary Susan Lucci! They all took part in a fashion show along with pro models and NFL wives to showcase the new line of NFL gear. All participants were wearing NFL gear paired with  top designer pieces from the likes of Catherine Malandrino, Badgley Mischka, Keneth Cole, Betsy Johnson and so many more.  It was a great way to mix sports and designer fashion. My favorite looks were from Alice & Olivia, Kenneth Cole and Catherine Malandrino. They all involve leather and I love! I went for a sporty chic look and I got so many compliments on my outfit! Top is from Forever 21, Skirt and Heels are H&M. Are you excited that football season is back?! …

B.A.D. Girl Photo Diary: Backstreet Boys Concert

I have always been a BSB fan since I was a kid and unfortunately didn’t get to experience their concerts until I was older and tickets for shows became a lot easier to get your hands on. BUT the BSB’s do not disappoint so this show was amazing! The concert was at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach in Long Island, NY.  The rain storm we had during the day on Tuesday held off throughout the night and my sister and I had a blast!! They sang all of their hits plus a bunch of new songs. These boys can still shake their money makers 20 years later!  We were looooving it! I was so excited that my H&M online purchase came in just in time to wear to the concert. I purchased these studded sandals that are mad comfy and so damn cute. It’s going to be a problem now that H&M offers online shopping! The best thing about this concert was that we were FINALLY going to meet the BSB’s! We attended the …

Nolcha Fashion Week: Samantha Cole London FW 13

On Wednesday, February 13, Nolcha Fashion Week: New York Fall/Winter 2013 presented by Rusk held their runway shows at Pier 59. For those of you who may not be familiar with Nolcha, now in its sixth year, they are one of New York’s leading platforms for independent global fashion designers. I fell in love with designer Samantha Cole and her Fall/Winter 13 collection. The models looked so tough and ready to kick ass.  There were lots of bold geometric prints and dark colors, but I personally loved the all white looks. Samantha Cole’s designs are very strong and edgy. Her collections are all designed with an underlying theme involving female empowerment,  which of course, I love. What do you think of the collection? Check out more from Nolcha Fashion week HERE and more from Samantha Cole London Here. *photos via
