FLY LADY DI LIVE PAINTING @ RETREAT

So this weekend was packed full of events and I got a chance to stop by two…Friday night we stopped by Retreat in Brooklyn to catch Fly Lady Di(If you haven’t checked the Fresh n Fierce Feature on her CLICK HERE)painting live alongside 4 other dope artists(Pesu, Ibrahim, Concep, and Brian Rothwell)..Sounds courtesy of Rob Swift and Geology…First off let me tell you how sweet Miss Di is, oh my goshness it was such a pleasure meeting her and to see her in action…The event was actually a tribute to Miles Davis, so some of the artists painted with that theme in mind…”I can’t even draw a stick man”; so I was blown away to see how the artists create masterpieces from a blank canvas…It was an all around great event, I also snapped a few style photos which I’ll post up soon…Saturday was a beautiful day and we trekked out to Habana Outopost in Brooklyn to catch the Lil Raggammuffin Fashion Show Fundraiser…Fly Lady Di was also painting at the event, and there was a massive turn out to show support…The fashion show was pretty dope…The duo design team from Born as a Raggamuffin deconstructed pieces from Coup Detat Bk, Concept, Rockers NYC, and 64 Village that were auctioned off to raise funds for the Lil Raggamuffins Summer Camp in Jamaica this August! Last but DEFinitely not least I have to mention the Writer’s Block they literally killed it, with informative,intellectual and all inspiring spoken word.

At the moment, Coleyclaire is one of my favorite emerging brands!…I’ve been in luv from the beginning…Their organic approach to design is definitely one of a kind! If you haven’t, click on over to their site and feast your eyes on their FALL 08 Collection…Once again, the duo has created a dramatic range of chic dresses and separates using a luscious mixture of textures and fabrics…These girls are sick, the detailing is so intricate from the feathers to the hardware…I WANT IT ALL! P.S. THEY HAVE A SALE ON A FEW DRESSES, GRAB THEM BEFORE THEY ARE GONE!!

THINGS I LUV

HEYYYYY, how are ya?(awkward silence)….of course your still here, you haven’t abandoned me yet right? My apologies ONCE AGAIN, for the lack of posts, new features etc…My life is always hectic and busy, and it finally caught up with me! I’m recovering from a yucky throat infection,all of my kids being sick, losing my cell phone charger(I NEVER LOSE IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE THAT), having a sucky mothers’day yeah MY LIFE! But before the drama, I did go on a trip with my hubby to va/dc which was great! Went shopping to H&M in woodbridge and bought this fabulous number up top, yeah I know people will gawk at least here in unstylish-ville where I stay…But WHATEVER, the tiger was calling my name asking me to take him home
I couldn’t resist($16.50)…And it was the last one and my size go figure, we were destined to be together =)…So I will confess, I have not stuck to my promise of wearing at least one dress/skirt a week…my excuse the weather its still sketchy and I don’t have lots so i’m in the process of buying…I’ll post the other one later, my brain is currently bleeding from photoshop…It takes me so looong to do these concoctions and they never turn out how I initially plan, but its all good(SAY SOMETHING)…How’s your life, whats new with you? School’s out soooon ahhhhhhh, I’m trying to ship the kids to the folks for some time this summer…They need a change of scenery,fresh clean air, and rolling hills of green grass and trees-RIGHT MA(YELLING)…so we’ll see how that works out…I have dreams of going to brazil like I have for the past what 7 yrs., right Ana funny joke NEVER SAY NEVER! Yeah so i’m basically back, I have a great giveaway that is way past due from ROJAS a beautiful dress worth $145…Big ups to Alejandra for that one, look out for it and thanks for continuing to support this thing I call Nuvany Ni’ce…See ya around!
