During Joe Zee’s keynote speech at the IFB Conference, I made a dash for the bathroom to quickly change into a more suitable party ensemble for the rest of the night. The first stop was the 10th Anniversary party for Arrojo salons.
Walking in I notice Tatum, the lovely (and might I add, attractive) man who cut my hair at the last Arrojo event I attended was spinning as the DJ as the place swarmed with fashionable and awesomely tressed guests. I ran into Kimberly of Can I get a What What again, as well as seeing Keiko, and many of my NYC Fashion Blogger friends.As previously stated, my tousled locks stayed all night, thanks to KMS California.
Nick Arrojo VJ’d for a bit, talking about his fond memories of the beginnings of his now famed company. He spun a few oldies hits, then came to dance with us ladies, and “backing dat azz up” with Ashley and taking goofy pictures with all of us.
For this portion of my day I wore a gifted dress from Francesca’s Collection, along with my moto boots. I had originally planned to wear my Lady GaGa second skin platforms, but I hadn’t had enough to drink and was in too much pain to wear them for hours.
Stay tuned for part three of NYFW Day 1, and then FNO!

So, some of you may know about this little group, and some of you may not. Last February I met two lovely ladies at the Independent Fashion Blogger’s convention in NYC. At the after party at the Chelsea Hotel, we realized we were the only attendees from the NY Metro area. We decided to meet for brunch the next day (Blogger Brunch anyone?) where our creative minds went wild.
We knew there were many fashion bloggers in NYC and thought it would be cool to find a way to meet them, go shopping together, go to events together…and thus, the NYC Fashion Blogger’s MeetUp Group was born.
Since then we’ve had some great events for our members from trunk shows, to fashion shows, to store openings and line previews. The group has grown into something the three of us couldn’t have imagined. Now, five months later, we teamed up with Women’s Mafia to create an exclusive event for 25 of our bloggers. With Arrojo Salons doing hair, make up, and eyelashes, Svedka vodka on drinks, Lora Condon reading excerpts from her best selling book Spa Wars (and supplying us with signed copies!), J Rudy Lewis giving us pieces from his jewelry collection, and Pop Up Studio taking fun pictures! It was quite the opposite of humbling to Yanil, Monroe, and I as we watched our baby of a group hit the highest of it’s peak.

So, if you’re a member of IFB and a blogger from the NY Metro area (we take New Jersey too!) feel free to check out the group, request to join, and I hope to meet you soon!! Also, if you’re form NY and looking to add some fun/spice/etc to your gathering, event or party, I fully advise Pop Up Studio…they even supply props!
For now, though, we bid you adieu.

Hello followers and readers!
I’ve been a busy lady as of late, with sooo many things in the works for this site and my personal life (And dramatics and tragedies as well, sadly). I recently attended an event for Mintbox, which I’ll be sharing more with you soon, but here are a few candid shots from the event, which also included sponsor’s from Arrojo Salon and NARS beauty products!

I personally didn’t take many pictures, or even quality outfit pictures due to being a good networker and mingler. And, ofcourse, NYC has been morbidly hot so I had sweated off all my make up.
Again, you’ll be hearing more about my Mintbox. In other news, I still take iPhone photos of my daily outfits and share on my Tumblr, here are a few from this week!
Other (vague) things to keep a look out for on my blog:
The New York Grape Vine
EEE so busy but SO excited!
