I am happy to say that recently, I have gotten my writing mojo back, and I have an abundance of new content to share! This past year has been INSANE (relationships, moving cities, career changes, you name it) and I am going to share it all on here as promised in my last post. As most of you know, I have made the move to the Big Apple in pursuit of working in fashion. You also may know that this has been the ultimate goal of mine, not only since I started this blog in 2013, but since I was much, much younger. Thank you to everyone who has followed me and supported me, and I promise I will share all my latest stories, updates and tips right here.
That being said, I am transitioning my blog to include tips of everything NYC-related: how I got here, how I picked my neighborhood, the best entertainment, how to adjust, etc. I want to touch on the aspects of NYC living that go unsaid: basically I want to tell my readers everything I WISH I would've known. I thought it was appropriate to kick-off my new image of my blog with a re-cap of my FIRST EVER RED CARPET EVENT!
Okay, so the attire. Red Carpet calls for sparkles, right? Sparkles and fur. That is why I went with a sequin dress from lulus.com and a white fur vest from Missguided. I topped the look off with sleek hair thanks to the Chi Silk Infusion line, and Badgley Mishka earrings. Also, because about 10 women asked me last night, my lip color is Patina by Stilla, a personal favorite mauve of mine. This color makes my lips look so plump and inviting, and it stays on all day.
Lastly, the venue. The WFA were held at 230 on 5th, which if you live in New York City or will be visiting, I highly recommend and here is why: it is a rooftop IGLOO BAR. On the rooftop sit dozens of private, little pods that are heated and perfect for a day of lounging and drinking. It also provides an incredible view of the Empire State Building and city skyline. The place also does a good dirty martini. I have decided I am going to do a post about the most Instagram-worthy places in NYC, and this will be on the list so stay tuned!
I could not have had a better experience at Winter Film Awards, and I am so happy that this was my first, official red carpet event. I feel like as a New Yorker and a fashion designer, your first red carpet event is a right-of-passage in a sense. I hope you enjoyed, and stay tuned for more adventures <3
