NYFW: ATTENDING FASHION MINGLING EVENT

Oct 15th, 2018

Aside from focusing on continuously improving my blog and attending fashion shows, I like to meet new people in the industry whenever the opportunity arises. Learning how other people get good at what they do and how they find inspiration helps me to find direction and inspiration to continue my own journey.

During NYFW, I managed to attend a fashion Mingling network event in-between runway shows. The event was organized by Fashion Mingle, with an intention to build a nationwide network for fashion professionals.

NYFW: DAY 1 POWER SUIT

NYFW: DAY 1 POWER SUIT

Sep 25th, 2018

“Putting on formal clothes makes us feel powerful,” which was exactly how I felt when I wore this suit set to NYFW. The ‘power suit’ has become more than a trend nowadays; it is a movement. A woman in a suit to me shows strength, determination, and fearlessness. Who wouldn’t want to be part of this style movement?!

FISHNET TIGHTS WITH RIPPED JEANS

FISHNET TIGHTS WITH RIPPED JEANS

Sep 2nd, 2018

I’m way more open to try different styles and colors of things these days than I used to be. I feel like there is no such thing as “I don’t look good in red,” or “a skirt never looks good on me,” etc. It is really just a matter of finding a perfect design and fit. It took me years to come to that realization. I am very happy with how open minded I am now with trying different things and explore what works and what doesn’t.

STRAW HAT, YOUR BEST SUMMER ACCESSORY

Aug, 9th, 2018

Some people believe accessories define a look, while others think accessories add to a look. I lean more towards the latter. I think accessories are called accessories for a reason. I don’t own a lot of hats but I am always in the hunt for a perfect hat. The straw hat has become the key accessory for this summer.

FAVORITE TOP

Jul 16th, 2018

What makes a piece of clothing a favorite, that one item you always reach for and love wearing again and again? For me, it has to be a combination between comfort, versatility & fit. This top that I got from Nordstrom is a great example of that.

WE MADE A SILK DRESS FOR THE FIRST TIME

A few weeks ago, my team and I spontaneously decided to make a dress on our own. The whole process of creating the dress took about 4 hours.

I am very excited to share this awesome fabric and cool dress with you! (more…)

NYC ANGELMAN SYNDROME COLLECTIONS SHOW

NYC ANGELMAN SYNDROME COLLECTIONS SHOW

May 29th, 2018

One very important trait we possess in our society is hierarchy. Hierarchy creates competition which in turn drives creativity. This is why I, as a fashion blogger, try to attend as many emerging designer fashion shows and competitions as I can. I want to support our youth and future generations in order to keep our fashion industry lush, alive, competitive, and ever evolving. When I got my invitation to come to the Angelman Syndrome Collections Presentation NYC, I was thrilled to once again be a part of the cultivation of our world’s young and genius emerging designers.

POLKA DOTS | MAKING A COMEBACK

May 8th, 2018

When I was 16 years old, Polka dots were everything! My mom would wear polka dots every other day and my dad wore polka doted ties to every major occasion. I was sick of them! I never wanted to see them ever again. Even when my aunt bought me a very expensive polka dot dress for my birthday, I told her to return it and get me something else. It wasn’t until I turned 25, when polka dolts came back in style, and I finally realized the elegance of the pattern. (more…)

Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get. Meeting Ahmed Shihab Eldin in DC was just that – an insightful, unique, and fun surprise.

Against all odds, time and travel constrains, and exchanging of wrong numbers, we managed to still meet with Ahmed and had a good time doing so. It was fate. (more…)
