Weekend in The Mountains

Now that all my NYFW posts are done, it’s time I post those pictures from my three days away. My silly cousin decided to get married down in Pennsylvania smack dab in the middle of fashion week, but I must say that although I know I missed some amazing shows, taking the time to get away was quite relieving. Here’s a few random pictures from my adventures and the wedding!

The road trip down:

Yuengling Brewery Tour:

Now, I’m not a fan of beer, but my parents are so they thought it would be fun to take a tour of America’s Oldest Brewery. Not going to lie, it was pretty cool. I even tasted some of the beer at the end! Octoberfest, yum (it’s not even in bars or stores yet!)

The Wedding!

YES, my hair matched my dress (from Express). I tried to stay classy, drinking my Twisted Teas, and attempting to last all night in my Bakers heels. My family eventually broke out the hula hoops and before long it was dark and I was driving a Jeep through the mountains lost for 2 hours with drunk uncles in the back. Not going to lie, it was a great time!

Anyway, the next morning it was back on the road to NYC and all those busy shows.

Nathaniel Paul Holiday 2011

Last night I had the pleasure of being invited to the preview of the Nathaniel Paul Holiday line. It was great to run into friends I haven’t seen in awhile like Tomeka Munroe of Fashion Steele NYC and Avril Lemieux of Alicat Avril Lemieux and Stephanie Lacabra, who had also modeled in Avril’s show with me during NYFW.

Anyway, I finally went out to my first NY Fashion Blogger Meetup event and I must say it was a blast. Nathaniel Paul, who’s website boasts he’s been sewing since he was 5, designs for women of all sizes. His dresses are intricately detailed and flatter every body type, making them uniquely satisfying to a broad spectrum of customers.

As you can see, the gowns and dresses are gorgeous! My favorite is “The Edith” as I love it’s subtly sexy cutout and the draping. I also truly love the backless gowns shown.

Among the beautiful presentation, drinks were served courtsey of Ty-Ku in the forms of Sake and Sujo cocktails. Baked by Melissa cupcakes were passed around, and I completely fell in love with the peanut butter and jelly one!

As for personally, I had come straight from school, so I look like shiza standing next to stunning Tomeka and Janique of HerGoodyBag.com
