NYFW: Backstage at the Tracy Reese Fall 2014 Runway Show

I had the pleasure of covering the backstage action before the Tracy Reese Fall 2014 Runway show during New York Fashion Week and it was such a cool experience! These are some of the behind the scenes photos I snapped with make up by Mally Beauty, Hair by Ouidad and nails by Sally Hansen. The hair for the show was to look natural and textured almost  as if you didn’t style it at all. There were 5 different makeup looks with “Exuberant” being my favorite because I loved the gold metallic glitter flakes that were sprinkled on the cheeks. It looked so pretty! I also loved the “Melancholy” look with a watercolor effect on the eyes using soft pinks, blues,  peach, navy and beige. The Tracy Reese Fall 2014 collection draws inspiration from juxtapositions, playing the loud and ecstatic against the pragmatic and quietly complex to create classically modern silhouettes in commanding cloths. The collection takes an intimate look at self-expression, intermixing utility pieces with unique elements that provide pops of personality and spirit. ~ …

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

I had the pleasure of attending the LuLu’s.com 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 …

Nolcha Fashion Week: Karo Swimwear Spring/Summer 2014 Runway Show Review

Karo Swimwear is the brainchild of Polish designer Kasia Roginska who launched her collection just this past January. She designs each piece to have built in jewelry and stones, which makes her swimsuits really pretty and unique. Her Spring 2014 collection was very eclectic and funky, which was really fun to see live. The line consisted mostly of monokinis and bikinis in bright fun colors with embellishments and sexy silhouettes. “My vision is to create something totally unique, a piece that’s not only a swimsuit. I want it to be a piece of art, something that makes woman feel elegant, edgy and sexy at the same time. Each piece has built in something that every female cherishes…jewelry.” ~Kasia RoginskaMy favorite swimsuit from the collection is called “Cleopatra” its the olive green suit with the embellished top (1st photo). I think its safe to say you have to be a daring and bold female to rock her sexy pieces because they are definitely more for show than for actual swimming! I loved how each models shoes matched their …

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 …

B.A.D. Girl Style: NYFW Day One

I FINALLY get to attend New York Fashion Week this year since I am self employed and can make my own schedule. Woop!  On Day 1 of NYFW Lincoln Center was buzzing and I was just taking it all in while sipping on a Beck’s Sapphire beer (free during cocktail hour!).  You’re only allowed into the actual venue if you have a ticket for a show that day otherwise people hang out outside hoping to see someone famous or get photographed. This is the outfit I wore to attend the Desigual SS14 runway show, which was SO good btw! I was really excited to find a cute pair of faux leather jogger pants at Mystique Boutique. I have seen these pants trending on some of my favorite bloggers and couldn’t wait to rock them. The tiger crop top is also from Mystique Boutique. The Sandals are from H&M and my bag is by Ted Baker. I also can’t forget to mention that my earrings are from my sorority sister’s jewelry line, Love, Nidia E.  I …
