from L to R Tamar, Jessica, Yours truly( despise how my mouth looks in this pic, damn the gum I was chewing and the photog for catching me off guard), Angela , and Kathleen.

Its that time again for all Fashion lovers its Fashion week in NYC ...where all...well most of your favourite designers debut their new collection for the upcoming season....I LOVE NYC fashion week during the Fall because thats my fave fashion season and I cant wait to see the fall colours or the layering , and styles for the season and so far I have not been disappointed.
So far I have attended a couple of shows and alot of events in between.... there was the Bar III pop up shop event, Haiti fundraising event hosted by Ben Stiller- honouring Sean Penn ( that was such a fantastic event), and Vladimir Restoin art exhibit. As far as fashion shows I attended Vivienne Tam (she had an amazing collection and alot of timeless pieces) and one of My ultimate fave Charlotte Ronson, and as per usual I was not disappointed. As well as attending these events with Angela Simmons, I also dressed her for these events and shows. We had fun coming up with her looks for these shows. Of Course Angela being the avid fashion lover she is loves experimenting with her looks and loves to add a touch of edginess and flare to her looks and also bring in a lil bit of her to the looks. For her look to the Charlotte Ronson show, Angela fought to wear these shorts, shew had wanted to wear it for a while and I kept saying no but then we came to a consensus and found a way to make it work for the show being that there is a bit of an edge in the Charlotte Ronson brand/ collection. So we just came to the agreement to find a way to still dress it up a bit and still keep the edge which is how the sequins sweater and fur vest came to play , along with the thigh high socks and penny loafer heels, for the soft classic look and we kept the edge with the socks, tights, four finger skull and flower rings and the skull dangling earrings and finally the bracelets and beads tying everything together. I ended up actually loving the look on her because it was interesting and different and was so Angela because she is always looking for a way to revamp or reinvent a common trend. Also , for these events the purpose was to give her a fresh look, something you wouldn't really expect from Angela but still maintaining her style and personality. The feather dress gave her dramatic, artistic and classic look and one of my ultimate fave look of hers in the black knee length sheer dress with the black slip underneath with all the bling, including the shoes ( sooo icyyyy). It transcended Vintage glam. Its almost impossible to get Angela in heels less than 5 1/2 inches and a dress that is not figure hugging, fitted or short but she fell in love with this look because it was still al good balance of her... the slip was tight and short and the shoes sparkled and we all know Ang loves her bling, so it was an amazing compromise that worked for her and she ended up looking amazing ( I think this was my fave look of all ) ....I always say I love enjoy dressing Ang because its always a whirlwind of fun because you never know how she's feeling or what look she's going to go for. She's so into fashion that she wants to be involved in picking out and putting together her looks. Anyways below is a breakdown of her looks....
