New in the Closet.....

Closet Whisperer Instagram

I spotted these beauties on blogger boo Gray & had to have them! They were out of stock online for the longest but I was finally able to order them. My plan was to wear them for fashion week. Sad thing was they were too big when I got them & I had to send them back. They sold out AGAIN but I kept checking & saw the size I needed available last week. I called to snatch them up right away & was told that there was only 1 pair left in the exact size I needed. FATE! I was able to get them at a nice percentage off too. They arrived on my doorstep over the weekend & fit perfectly! I can't wait to wear them.

Spread Love Its The Brooklyn Way: NYFW Essence Street Style Block Party

My 1st day in New York kicked off with a bang. I stayed in the upper eastside of Manhattan with my cousin which was awesome. The area was so nice & it was close to the Lincoln Center, Central Park & not far from the other shows I was going to. As soon as I touched down, I got ready so I could meet up with My Fashion Fairy Friend, Deone at Essence Magazine's Street Style Block Party in Brooklyn. Now I used to work in New York and my only gripe with Brooklyn is that it always took me FOREVER to get there. This time was no different. A 30 minute train ride turned into an hour getting to Dumbo, Brooklyn.  Me & trains just don't click. Hopping off one & jumping to another. I don't have the patience for all that especially when I'm so used to just getting in my car & driving.

I literally caught the last 10 minutes of this block party, but it was still packed when I got there! The people & energy there were amazing. I managed to get a few shots from a great event. There was a designer spotlight for 3 designers:

Accessories talent Melody Ehsani:

Project Runway alum Kimberly Goldson:

Menswear designer Ron Bass

Chevorlet cars were also on display featuring custom art. Dope!

 We left there & headed to a private party at my new fave spot, The James hotel.  I love a good rooftop. The atmosphere, the view, the music..... it just had a good vibe. If you're in New York you have to stop by. Thanks to Chef for the invite!

Fun times! Click here in case you missed the deets on what I wore.

TRENDING: Temporary Tattoos

During fashion week, I went to the Lincoln Center & got this pretty temp tattoo at the Pandora jewelry station. I didn't think much of it until I got back to Atlanta and people were asking me: "Where did you get that?" What is that?" or telling me how cute it was. So, I thought I'd share.

What I Wore: NYFW Day 1

If you follow me on social media, you'll know that I went to New York Fashion Week this year! It's been almost 2 years since I been in New York & I was so excited to go. I always come alive there! With that being said I came up with the bright idea to go maybe a week & a half ago! So, planning the wardrobe was very last minute. I know, I'm crazy.

Closet Whisperer x NYFW: Nolcha's Fashion Week

On Tuesday I attended Nolcha's Spring/ Summer '15 collection of emerging designers. I'm always on the lookout for what's new & next in fashion so I couldn't wait for this show. It was a packed house with notable celebs such as Rocsi Diaz, Russell Westbrook & my newest boo Johnny Wujek. Who knew Katie Perry's costume designer was such a cutie patootie?! 



The 1st designers to present were Charles & Ron which i loved! I could see myself wearing a lot of the pieces. It was very feminine & I loved the use of soft colors & print. Definitely a designer duo to watch. 

#2  Sofia Arana

I also enjoyed Sophia Arana's very girly collection.  She had me with the maxi!

 #3 Katty Xiomara

 I also thought Katty Xiomara shined with her collection mixed with structured & flowy pieces. I'd wear the last look in a heartbeat. Easy breezy & good pair of pumps is very much my style.

Designers: Monstruosite', Schuyler 4, Oiselle
Overall, The Nolcha Fashion Week presentation was well balanced showcasing a total of 13 diverse designers with their own point of view. I really enjoyed it!
