Thank you all for your entries, REMEMBER TO LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IN THE SPACE PROVIDED FOR FUTURE GIVEAWAYS !!! The winner is Nadia, please check your e-mail :). Thanks again and lookout for the next giveaway sponsored by Manimal, you don’t want to miss out!!!


NYFW ended yesterday, I was kind of sad to think about it :). I guess I’ve become accustomed to going from show to show everyday for the past week and now its done! Great times & memories were had, I’m grateful that I finally got a chance to experience NYFW. You can view my coverage on the shows I attended at She Breathes! I struggled with compiling my fits for the week. I didn’t know what to expect, how I should dress up or down in between. Ms. Shoo gave me a brief rundown of how things would be, but I guess you never know until you experience for yourself. After going to my first show, I decided that I would just be myself and not try to conform to any certain look/style that I saw.  I wore the outfit in the above pic. at my last show yesterday evening. I’ve never been a super glam type of girl. I’ve always been a tomboy and prefer to dress casually than to dress up. But as I get I older I find myself wanting to switch it up a bit at least occasionally. Here is the rundown of my fit:

Thrifted Bailey Fedora

Vintage Harve Bernard Cropped Blazer

DIY Fringe Necklace (cut it from and old top)

Thrifted H&M Tunic

Aeoropostale Jeans

Vintage Hand Crocheted Bag

Vintage Bangle

Target Ankle Boots



So I couldn’t leave the tents empty handed without snatching up a few goodies for you all! This is the first official giveaway on the new and improved blog :).  Up for grabs 2 Issues of the new Arise Magazine, 1 New York Times Style Magazine, 1 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Welcome Book, 1 Bottle of Maria Bonita Nail Polish. 2 winners will be picked at random each winner will receive a copy of Arise Magazine and one will receive the other items included in the giveaway. Winners will be announced next Friday September 25. To enter this giveaway leave a comment letting me know your favorite show fom NYFW this season and why? PLEASE REMEMBER TO LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IN THE PROVIDED SPACE WHEN LEAVING A COMMENT OTHERWISE I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE THE WINNER. Oh and I will be posting a slideshow of all the streestyle pics. I snapped over the weekend, stay tuned!
