Monday: East Village meets Brooklyn

This past Monday I had the day off from my hectic schedule in honor of President's Day. Any free time I get while I'm currently living in New York I dedicated to going thrifting. It felt so great to not be bothered by my alarm clock going off and interrupting my sleep. I got to sleep in which I haven't done in a long time and spend the day doing what I'm best at SHOPPING! I started off at "No Relations" in East Village, it must have been my lucky day because I found the perfect fur coat that I've been in search of all season. Its black with some added grey areas and greatly over sized, not your typical colored fur coat but that's what makes it special. After leaving the East Village I grabbed a quick lunch from Chipotle before heading to Brooklyn for more vintage shopping. Those of you who don't know, I'm a sucker for a burrito! One of my favorite thrift stores in New York is "Beacon's Closet"! I've been to the Park Slope location but I was curios to see the Williamsburg location as well. Turns out I like the Williamsburg location better due to the fact it's so much bigger and they have so many shoes and vintage purses to choose from! I bought yet another purse, a suede printed cropped blouse with buttons going down the back, and a pair of leather boots with colored patches. I've been wearing my boots since I bought them and they hurt my feet unfortunately (-_-) I hope they stretch soon! Before heading home I stopped in the "Salvation Army" and "The Urban Jungle Vintage Warehouse" but I didn't see anything that captured my attention. Juggling Teen Vogue and my job leaves very little time to do all the stuff I would like to do during my time here but any chance I get I will be spending it in "No Relations" and "Beacon's Closet"!

NY Fashion Week: Kevork Kiledjian Fall/Winter 2011 RTW

On Monday I attended the Kevork Kiledjian fashion show at Milk studios. In a suppressed world where few were brave enough to listen to their inner voice. Tamara De Lemppicka lived an authentic without fear or conformity. She was the catalyst for today’s women. Kevork Kiledjian envisions this in his collection. An indefinable being intelligently confident in their environment, at its foundation the collection is a study of life’s opposites. Fabrics and designs that only in contrast create harmony. Tamara knew that inherently. Centered upon a ballet of black, purple, camel, and gold Kevork Kiledjians latest collection reflects what it means to be radical. Trusting oneself by ignoring the outside social norm. Fitted silhouettes and asymmetrical lengths echo Kevork Kiledjians desire to remember the physical. The conscious reveal of skin with a slit, open back, or fringe augment the Kiledjian dimension. Opulent feather print blouses, tailored leather jackets, and colorful fur mark a new time when one forgets to fear. Below is footage I taped from my seat in the front row!

By sight in Los Angeles, the sun kisses everything. It casts the world in a glow of hazy blues and mellow yellows, this is a unique place. The city landscape does not interfere with a sense of peace and isolation. There is a stillness like no other, and the geometric buildings rising silently from nature. Beautiful people have been lured here by fame. They preach in the minimalist angles of houses tucked into the hills. They can see the future on the pacific horizon and it's looking bright. Los Angeles is salty and sweet. Through intuition Los Angeles is built on dreams and you can feel them all around you. Your dreams mingle with the dreams of others. A collective energy that drives the fierce creative force of the city. Be a star or just live like one. Opulent minimalism, laid-back, yet impeccably styled. West-facing beaches offer a perfect sunset every night. Flawless lighting is key accompanied by city views from lavish hilltop rooms, fashion has personality and personality has fashion. New York City will always have a special place in my heart but I'm in search of something else somewhere else.
