Check for Monsieur Mai right here POW!….
About two weeks ago I experienced one of the most memorable & exciting days of my life, I finally got the chance to meet a woman who I greatly admire face to face! My partner in grind Aly from Le Modern Girl & I headed up to Bryant Park’s Reading Room to catch a discussion/q&a with Kelly Cutrone of People’s Revolution. It was a very intimate setting outside in the park with about 100 ppl in attendance not counting all of the onlookers.
First let me say if you have not read Kelly’s book “If You Have To Cry Go Outside”, please do yourself the favor and read it ASAP! I finished the book in 2 days & would have finished it in one if I didn’t have little distractions here & there, I really did not want to put the book down! I think people watch the City & because of the way they edit the show for the most part, derive that Kelly is constantly more harsh & cut-throat than she is in real life. I mean granted she doesn’t play games & she is very straight forward, after listening to her speak I learned that she is an extremely selfless & compassionate human being. She answered the audiences questions thoroughly about how she balances her career & personal life-she doesn’t to how you should go on interviews looking like you are apart of the brand. Very practical information that everyone is not knowledgeable of, but that all woman should know.
After the discussion ended, she stayed behind to sign copies of her book & graciously took the time to chat with each person. My friend & I stood in line for about an hour I believe, but it was so worth it(she let us cut the line too ;)). I couldn’t believe how giving she was with her time & knowledge, she really talked without rushing to every person that stood in that line to have their book signed. I took away a lot that day from her discussion & from the brief chat we had, I felt more empowered as a mother & a woman!
Yes finally I did it, yesterday I tie-dyed the white jeans that have been sitting in my drawer for the past year. I recently found 2 boxes of black Tintex fabric dye at my local dollar store & thankfully after staring at the box of dye on my desk for about a week yesterday I just did it. Now I did not chronicle the whole process a. because there wasn’t much too it AT ALL and b. there are like 8k YouTube videos on how to tie-dye already! So the whole process literally took me about an hour a half if that. I made a short video showing how I tied the rubber bands on sections of the jeans and removed them. I’m ecstatic at how great they turned out, a $10 or $12 pair of jeans from forever 21 revamped so simply who would have thought lol! If you have any questions, just leave a comment ENJOY!
Oh & excuse me for looking like WHO DON DID IT & RAN in the video, but it was very impromptu and I even hesitated to post it but I’m like if that’s what you look like early on a monday morning then that’s what you look like lol. Also excuse all of my screwed up faces, I talk with a lot of facial expression. Ok enough with the disclaimers ENJOY YA’LL!
Yesss henny NYFW is finally OVA, fun times but I am exhausted! Last night I covered my last round of shows for She Breathes & was invited to another show by a friend that I did not plan on attending, but that’s how fashion week goes SPONTANEITY. I’ll be doing a brief re-cap of some shows I attended here on Nuvany Nice next week & you can always visit She Breathes to see some of my coverage as well. This year I really reflected on how far I’ve come with this blog & my personal progress in regards to my career path. When I started this blog my intention was to sell all of the excess clothing & accessories I would buy & never use but gradually it has evolved into so much more. I’m very critical of myself and at times don’t acknowledge what I’ve accomplished. Those that have been with me from the beginning will attest to my growth :). I’m saying all of this to say, that if you have a desire or passion stick with it, work hard to pursue it by any means(legally :)) , immerse yourself in/around it, above all DON’T GIVE UP and believe in yourself. These words may sound cliché, but we use them repetitively because they prove themselves! Ok enough sappy, sappy ha ha! I didn’t go hard with the street style photos this time around but here’s a small snippet of what I saw this year, ENJOY! Oh & thank all of you for your wonderful comments,emails,visits it’s definitely a part of what keeps me going :).Vodpod videos no longer available.
Helllllllo, I’m so sorry for being MIA but fashion week is underway & I have been on the go-go-go! First off let me start by announcing the two winners of the Amy Martino Giveaway drum roll pleassssssse: Estasha Goodwin & Yah! Please check your email & thanks to everyone who entered. There will be more giveaways soon :)!
Ok so back to NYFW, I’ve been covering a few shows again this season on behalf of She Breathes & let me tell you I’m having a ball! You can check my coverage of the shows over at She Breathes & I’ll also be posting some NYFW happenings here at Nuvany Nice as well. I thought I would give you a peek at what I’ve worn so far, my obsession with faux glasses lingers on :). As you all probably know I adore brazilian model Thiago Santos, well I had the pleasure of attending the Buckler show where he modeled & will be posting a review here soon! Lets see I’ll be attending the IFB conference today so check back for a recap of that too! So much to do so little time, these are the days I wish I drank coffee for an ongoing adrenaline boost. Are you attending any shows, let me know who your favorites have been thus far! I’m off to a show this morning so I have to run & get ready but I’ll be posting more from NYFW soon, thanks for hanging in there with me!
As much as I love fashion, I do not pride myself on putting things together well! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think I go out looking like a slump but lets just say its a work in progress :). I always find great things, but incorporating them cohesively into an outfit is sometimes a challenge for me. Here are a few of the accessories that I’m loving right now. So this post is a bit of a challenge for you readers. Give me some advice on how your would pair the items above w/an outfit. All suggestions are welcome, and just incase you need a visual body type here are my stats. I’m about 5’5, 130 lbs., measurements 32-27-36. I look forward to hearing all of your advice :)!
