Statement Blouses

Finally! warmer weather seems to be gracing the streets of New York, but in memoriam of all the really cool outfits I was managed to assemble during the frost, this look was by far my favorite. One of my favorite things to do with my clothing is layer, layer, and layer some more. The only excuse to do that effectively without looking like a marshmellow is during the colder seasons. Now as many of you know monochrome colors are my go to and are typically my safest bet when layering, however, with these pieces, I chose to try something new. One of my favorite new brands Klean Seoul, has an exquisite array of bold and bright colored pieces that I immediately was drawn to! I paired their copper top from the F/W collection, with a beautiful white ruffled top from sheinside, with mom jeans from zara and my favorite silver loafers from guava, my look was complete. Yes I know I know this all sounds like an odd color scheme but it would be better to show you the look than tell you, so here it is! 7539722268 “Code to import my old blog: 7539722268

New York Men’s Fashion Week F/W 17

New York Men’s Week kicked off on January 31st with the customary NYMD presentations at Dune Studios, featuring a plethora of promising designers such as Uri Minkoff, Robert James, Max N’ Chester, Krammer Stoudt, David Hart, Woodhouse, and many more. These talented designers brought a mixture of eccentric, grungy, urban, minimalistic and sporty vibes to their presentations.  The 70’s were making a comeback, from the likes of Todd Snyder, Thaddeus O’Neil, as well as the minimalistic edgy vibes of Loris Diran. Corduroy was definitely the statement comeback piece of the season, as I noticed that it made many a comeback from both NYMD and throughout some shows later on in the week. Statement pieces were also quite the staple this season as well. As always I wanted to go home with many a piece from every collection, but I will have to settle for waiting to purchase one of my own.

Shoe Things | Spring St.

I have always been an avid admirer of the perfect low shoe, sneakers, flats you name it, if it doesn’t elevate my height and force me to walk like a new born gazelle, then I will wear it! So of course you can imagine my immediate joy at purchasing  a pair of unconventional white slip on sneakers from Charles and Keith. Now I know I may sound biased as I own a pretty decent amount of their pieces but, what I love about their shoes are that they set themselves apart from other shoes, in that they do not fit into the mold of standard everyday shoes in terms of what fits the standard. There are also a pair of flats that I can say were very aesthetically pleasing. The flats from their new velvet collection have a pointy toe with a really cool rounded heel, low enough that I can wear it everyday, but dressy enough, where I can wear it out on special occasions as well. Donned with a pair of oversized jeans and a white button down, I share with you how I went from casual with white slip-on’s to slightly dressy with flats with the same outfit. Trust me shoes relly do make the difference.

FASHIONWEEK ESSENTIALS

Whether you’re on the go or just pressed for time, these must have essentials during the fashion month are the way to go! So during NYFW, my social media was flooded with questions on what my go to products/appliances are to survive the jungle that is fashion week, here are some of my picks that helped me get through the week!!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Sunglasses | SMOKE & MIRRORS  Earrings | RUE GEMBON  Headphone | SUDIO SWEDEN Watch | FJORD TIMEPIECES Oil Absorbing Sheets |CLEAN & CLEAR

My Lo and Sons camera bag was the real MVP during this especially hectic week, besides the fact that it is a camera bag for ladies, it was convenience in bag form, with a removable compartment to place both your camera and other necessities, the simplicity of carrying my camera with the stylish appearance of a handbag.

Next up were my Sudio Sweden Vasa Bla headphones, now when I mention convenience these headphones take the cake. Whenever I take photos my headphones tend to get tangled with my bag or my camera straps making it harder to access my phone, whilst detangling my headphones, but not these ones. The Vasa Bla headphones are wireless headphones that connect with your phone via bluetooth for up to 8 hours of studio quality sound with long battery life, they are extremely light and offers so much freedom when I’m taking photos, not to mention that it also comes with multiple ear sleeve sizes, so you don’t have to worry about your headphones slipping out!

A cool pair of sunglasses where do I even start? The right pair can go a long way , and add that extra “cool” factor to any outfit, of course this is especially beneficial when one is vying for those coveted, street style shots. My shades from Smoke and Mirrors were my token go to sunglasses.

Water is literally your best friend! I cannot express, how important it is to stay hydrated, during the week running from show to show, it is especially imperative that you carry something to small to snack on while traveling in between shows. In a majority of the venues, beverages were provided which put exhaustion to a halt but if you didn’t have the luxury of taking a breather carrying a bottle of water is the way to go!

Keeping track of time is of course the number one priority during the fashion month and what better way to tell time with style, with my silver Fjord timepiece, I am THAT person that tends to veer away from over the top,” loud ” colors when it comes to watches and this one is far from that, it’s that timepiece that goes with almost everything you wear!

Band aids, bobby pins and  a small compact brush go a long way and no they won’t all be used together, but for those of us that choose to wear our highest heels or break in those new pair of loafers you purchased specifically for the fashion month, (I am guilty of this) your band aid, (or band- aids) should and will be a constant companion during these trying times, trust me on this one ! Or just save yourself the trouble and invest in a pair of fast flats!

Google maps will never lead you astray, there will be the chance that many of the shows will be offsite, should you happen to take the subway or need to tell your uber where to go organizing where which show is and when will really help, having a planner to tell you what shows are when are where will alleviate so much unnecessary stress.

How could I forget! PHONE CHARGER! Or a portable one at that, has saved many a blogger/ photographer during the fashion month, granted that many of the venues have charging stations, but it just feels a lot better when you have your phone charging in your hand as opposed to waiting for it to do so. Anything can happen during fashion week and missing those Instagram or Snapchat moments can be disappointing.

Besides these essentials, there are many more that I cannot conjure up at the moment, but as a photographer, having an extra set of memory cards are a plus of course! These and many more are the way to go, so if you have the chance to set out to London, Milan, Seoul, Paris ect. or even right here in New York, for fashion week, these items are perfect!

SOHO IN SPRING

After what seemed like a never ending tundra that is New York City weather, the sun finally decided to grace us with warm weather, and what better way to do that with a fun photoshoot in soho with your best friend. Donned in head to  toe winter/ spring attire we took to the cobbled stoned streets of Lafeyette in SOHO with talented photographer Ivana Miric capturing every moment. We selected these outfits because of it’s winter/ spring versatility, adding on to that are my favorite go to statement jewelry pieces from Gramerci Designs, the watch of every minimalists dream from Marc Bale, and my black and gold specs from zerouv.

A.KAMERA | LAFAYETTE ST.

Happy belated New Year to you all! Marking the new year with my first post of January, I thought I would go a different route this course, with the tables (or lens in this case), turned towards me. Instead of the usual focus on others and “hiding” behind my camera I decided, (with the coercion of a friend) to take that step in front of the camera. At first I was a little apprehensive as I am not as comfortable in front of the lens as I am behind, but it soon became second nature. I’m especially looking forward to sharing this look with you all, a very simple yet casual approach to the ever-dropping temperature in New York city. As the weather gets colder people tend to struggle to find that perfect look, but to also stay warm. In this look I am wearing probably one of the warmest and most comfortable sweaters, from Gudrun & Gudrun, the classic turtleneck with slight bell sleeves, were what sold me on this look, it being comfortable was the cherry on top. Pairing it up with a vintage coat and jeans made for the perfect winter look.

CHELSEA MA | NOLITA

A few weeks ago I had the chance to photograph Chelsea Ma, by far one of the most down to earth and ambitious individuals, I have met. One of the things that compelled me to photograph her and share her story with you was her aesthetic view on a myriad of things, whether it be fashion, traveling or even life, she is definitely one to inspire. As she pursues a career in design at Parsons New School, she manages to stay grounded in the midst of it all, and how she manages to do so is an accomplishment in and of itself. Be sure the check out her page to get a glimpse of the world through her eyes. Without further adieu here’s Chelsea Ma on the streets on NOLITA.

MODEL BEHAVIOUR

Every photographer loves the chance to film/ photograph a subject that inspires them to WANT to photograph them. As a photographer one of the best things about photographing an individual is the emotion and/or enthusiasm you get from the person being photographed, you start to relish that moment and are even more excited to take photo after photo. Because everyone knows that a photographer can be good, but their subject must be better. In a sense it’s a two way street, the dance of give and take, where the subject gives and the photographer takes. Now enough of my endless blathering, today’s blog post is one I am super excited to share!! I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Korean models, Jihye Park and Ji Young Kwak, after walking the Badgley Mischka show. I absolutely loved shooting them!! They brought so much energy, hitting pose after pose and were by far my favorite models during NYFW to photograph. The two friends have been spotted on multiple streetstyle blogs, and on the runway of multiple shows during that week. Without further ado, I am very excited to share with you all these photographs from that day!
