B.A.D. Girl Photo Diary: LuLu’s NYFW Style Studio Event

I had the pleasure of attending the LuLu’ New York Fashion Week Style Studio event in NYC over the weekend. I had a great time catching up with some of my favorite blogger babes, checking out all of the awesome brands and scoring some amazing freebies while enjoying delicious cocktails courtesy of Hpnotiq! Here are a few photos from the event! I ran into so many familiar faces like my girls Laura, Heather and Erin  and had the pleasure of meeting new blogger babes too! The Hpnotiq cocktails were gooood. I loved the ‘Sparkling Sweetheart’ made with Hpnotiq Harmonie and Prosecco! Lulus also had a fun fashion wheel where you could Spin to Win gifts like clothes, shoes and gift cards from their sponsors. The items were available whiles supplies lasted so I made sure to be one of the firsts on line! Thanks to the power of positive thinking I won the super freakin’ cute crochet dress I had my eye on by clothing brand Others Follow! Lulu’s was also very kind enough to gift everyone one free item …

‘Goodwill Suits You’ Fashion Show 2013 Event Recap

The ‘Goodwill Suits You’ Fashion Show took place on October 1st at the 3rd ave Harlem Goodwill Store location to kick of Disability Employment Awareness Month. I participated as a stylist for 3 fabulous models:  Richard, Sheril and Kim! I met with each of them individually at Goodwill Stores to help pick out professional attire that they can walk the runway in and use for the workplace. Here are some pics of them working the runway during the show! I styled Richard in a dark grey suit with a paisley tie that will be perfect for when he goes on interviews in the communications/tech space. Richard was so much fun to work with and he definitely did his thing on the runway! Sheril was my super model because she is so tall and slim so I styled her in a black knee length pencil skirt and a fun printed blouse paired with a sweater to make it office/work appropriate since the blouse had no sleeves. Sheril worked it! The tweed jacket Kim is rocking was such …

Refinery 29 Brought Tinseltown to Soho

Last week I along with blogger pals Kimberlee and Laura attended Tinseltown, a shopping event hosted by Refinery 29 that featured some really cool brands. The companies featured allowed for a variety of  gift ideas for all of the different people in your life. They had everything from jewelry to fashion scarves and clothes to gifts for the entertainer all the way down to even the littlest of  fashionistas. I really liked the company WOOL And The GANG who make super cool DIY  kits that allow you to create your own pieces made out of beautiful Peruvian yarn. You can also buy gorgeous ready to wear pieces too! Gorgeous Scarves from YARNZ Super bad ass necklaces  from Lulu Frost (above) and a dope bracelet from Bing Bang (below)  More gorgeous pieces from Lulu Frost Jewelry Fun gift items for the gal/guy who loves to drank and entertain guests! Super soft buttery leather goods. Yum! The  little baby clothes were beyond adorable! Laura and I loved how sharp the bartenders were dressed. They were serving up cocktails all night. The spiked …

B.A.D. Girl Trend: Cap It Off

OK! So I know fitted caps are nothing new, but I am completely obsessed with the revival of this item as a fashion accessory and find it super sexy when rocked with a really put together look. Some of my favorite fashion bloggers have done it and I’m drooling. (from top to bottom: The Blonde Salad, V’s Dress Code, Vintage Virgin & Song of Style) Don’t they make rockin’ fitted caps  look so chic and B.A.D. ass?! To be honest I am  a bit iffy about how I look in hats, but I would SO rock one and I actually have before. I am currently coveting this baby here, this one here and I can’t forget this one! What do you think about this urban street meets fashionista trend? xx Nicole

“A Luxury Affair” with the MOB Wives of VH1

I attended a taping for VH1’s MOB Wives on Tuesday at J’adore Lounge in NYC hosted by 5 Promotions and LaVue PR.  It was quite an experience to get a taste of “reality” TV.  Renee Graziano and Ramona Rizzo were the two “wives” in attendance partying it up with Cherry Martinez from Power 105.1.  I wish Big Ang would have shown up! I invited my girls Kimberlee and Erin to cover the event with me!  We all had such cute nail polish colors so a photo was necessary!  Do any of you watch MOB Wives? Maybe you will catch me on an episode next season!  xx
