These were taken on the first day of fashion week. I was fortunate enough to get a sewing machine for my birthday (thanks parents!) so I really wanted to push myself to learn how to make something for fashion week. The finished product is this ankara skirt I am wearing.

I was so excited to meet one of my absolute favorite fashion bloggers Kristina Bazan of KAYTURE! She was super nice and sweet and even stopped to snap a photo with me!
As a rookie blogger, I love going to fashion week simply for the experience. While getting invited into shows is ultimately the goal, just being in the presence of so many different styles, trends, and down right craziness gives me life! It makes my heart skip a beat. It makes me swoon.
But…..As our NY luck would have it, we were able to make it into the Lincoln Center, which was a treat in and of itself.
After having some fun in the Lincoln Center, we left and took the subway over to Harlem to visit little Africa and look for some African fabric.
A gorgeous Harlem sunset
After shopping we headed back to soho to meet up with my cousin for dinner, drinks, & dessert. Much needed after being out allllllll day.
Some dope street art
A cute little poster in the restaurant.
All in all, it was a
good awesome day!
P.S. I got a lot of questions about my lipstick color, so I thought I’d let you guys know what I was wearing. I used MAC’s Magenta lip liner as a lipstick and lightly went over it with MAC Rebel lipstick.
It is seriously wedding season.
This weekend I found myself at yet another wedding. My gorgy co-worker got married to the love of her life. I really don’t mind though…I could listed to Corinthians 13 all day.
Love is a beautiful thing.
