Event Recap: Wendy’s #NewSaladCollection NYC Launch with Model Molly Sims

Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending an exclusive fashion event at a New York City Wendy’s restaurant to kick off the launch of “The New Salad Collection from Wendy’s” campaign – a partnership with fashion site Polyvore and contest judge super model Molly Sims.  It was a night filled with food, fashion and fun! Models were styled in looks  inspired by the bold flavors and vibrant colors of Wendy’s new salads: Asian Cashew Chicken and BBQ Ranch Chicken. “Fashion inspiration can come from anywhere – even your Wendy’s salad,” said Sims. “I love how Wendy’s is rolling out their new salads like a fashion line and can’t wait to see how fashion lovers like me are inspired by them.” Wendy’s and Polyvore are running a contest where you can create your own style board, using Wendy’s salad images and fashions inspired by them. You then tag your board with #NewSaladCollection for a chance to win $1,000, which can be used to stock up on styles you pinned. Cha-ching! At the event they had a huge magnetic Polyvore style board where …

Photo Diary: Student Styling Session at Goodwill Chelsea Boutique Store

Last Monday I had the pleasure of partnering up with Goodwill to help style at risk high school students for job interviews.  I along with stylist/blogger Shaunya worked with students who are repeating 9th grade and have been provided with a curriculum that incorporates career readiness as a major component of student learning.  I worked with 3 of the students directly; Alize, Angie and Justin. They were awesome and I had so much fun! My job was to help the students put together looks that are interview appropriate that will help boost their confidence and get them excited to pursue and work toward their job and career goals. Here are some candid shots of me working with Angie to put together her outfit! It was amazing to see how the attitudes of the students changed the second they put on their new interview ready attire. They felt confident and ready to kick major butt. Don’t they look great?  Did I mention we scored all of their outfits at Goodwill?! We were at the Chelsea location …

‘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 …

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?! …

Anthropologie ‘Made In Kind’ Event

I along with my blogger boo Erin of Spikes & Sequins attended a fun event in honor of Anthropologies ‘Made in Kind’ Karen Walker collection, called ‘Hi There’.  We were supposed to get a chance to meet Karen Walker in the flesh, but sadly I think we missed her! The collection itself is really cute and very similar to Karen Walkers signature line, but at a much better price!  The collection is full of cheeky prints and bright fun colors. I loved the cute octopus tee paired with the polka dot skirt! There was a  Valentine’s Day inspired candy station so we made sure to stock up on some sweets. They also served  chilled Prosecco, had a fun Valentine’s Day themed photo booth and a DJ blasting tunes to keep the vibe cool and chill. We had a good time and tried really hard not to shop! Erin and I did NOT plan to both have neon legs for the event, but we did and it was pretty awesome. I was also rocking my new leather biker …

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.
