Twinkle, twinkle little star. Aaaaah. I'm in Sneaker Heaven. Introducing my girl Melody Ehsani's latest collaboration with Reebok:the Constellation Pack. Kicks for the sporty chick who wants to be the center of attention. The limited edition sneaks went on sale at midnight and are easily the hottest shoes of the season. I got a chance to check these babies out before almost everyone else... being a model does have its advantages. And let me say, like wow! Melody keeps blowing me away every time.
Who says glamour like this should only be reserved for the nighttime. On my very last day in New York, I decided to go out with a bang. I knew I wanted to wear a simple black jumpsuit. But just because something's easy doesn't mean it has to be boring. My original plan was to accessorize with big gold chains and a classic red lip. The weather had other plans. Unlike the previous days of humidity and heat, it had suddenly turned cool in Manhattan. Autumn had officially arrived. So what started as a pretty minimal look turned into this... Spectacular, spectacular!
The boys are back in town! The boys are back in town! I know that song's usually associated with baseball, but I'm linking it to fashion. We're talking New York Fashion Week, baby! Models, designers, street style, and the latest trends for Spring/Summer 2015. Once again I hopped on a plane and jetted to the Big Apple to partake in the shows, the parties, and the craziness. I live for this stuff. To kick off the festivities, I had the pleasure of joining StyleList, AOL Build, and some awesome guests on a panel about the impact bloggers have on Fashion Week. Because let me tell you, things were totally different a few years ago. Designers used to scoff at the thought of inviting a blogger to a show. Now we're sitting front row, bringing it straight to you, and changing the landscape of fashion.
This past month I've been showered with so much media affection I don't even know what to do. First thing's first... I want to say thank you. I know that I have a very interesting face and a voice, so I'm going to use them. Every day I wake up with a prayer that basically goes a little something like this "God, help me to do the best I can and let the work that I do touch at least one person today." You can be the most talented person in the universe but unless someone recognizes what you're doing, your labor of love won't have much of an impact. Well someone, more like a lot of someones, noticed me.
