I took a time out from all the shows and high-heel walking of Fashion Week to have a rooftop brunch with Pavan Liqueur. I was delighted to be one of the few bloggers + celebrities who were invited to a three course meal accompanied by a variety of different cocktails made with Pavan.
I have to say the creative director of Pavan is just a gem, so petite and fashionable! She started the brunch with a toast and a little history of her liqueur. She had spent a lot of time in the south of France (like myself) and came up with the idea and name while staying there. Bridget Bardot was one of the main inspirations for the liqueur, so you know I was immediately sold. Maybe it’s just because it’s inspired by France and fashion babes, but I really enjoyed the drinks.
I also had the pleasure of sitting next to the wonderful, Kate Nash. She is such a honest soul and beautiful spirit. We talked about fans, young girls, high school, boys, salt, chips, etc. I’m so excited for her to come back to Brooklyn in November.
At the end we were all send home with a goodie bag full of new bottles of this deliciously chic liqueur, so you know I’m about to have to have 37 cocktail parties in my backyard before it gets too cold. Oh and if you’re dreaming of the south of France now like I am, you can enter their contest to win a trip here.
Fashion week day four and nobody’s died yet… The fourth day of fashion week I attended the Pavan brunch in the morning at the beautiful Refinery hotel. The rooftop up there is stellar. I sat next to Kate Nash and my love, Rachel-Marie of JagLever as we sipped the new french vodka in different kinds of drinks over a three-course meal. It’s was so lovely and the designer of the vodka label is just a fashion gem! She was wearing a Pamela Love NYC star cuff, so rad aka I knew I liked her right away. Stay tuned for pictures coming to my blog of our lovely meal + Kate Nash!
Anyways after that, I ran back to Brooklyn to get dressed for the Socialyte Gala. I wasn’t feeling very dressy so I threw on my Wildfox Cake sweater and new all white platforms. The Gala was held at the box and some of the top bloggers were there including, Song of Style, StyleScrapbook and The Blonde Salad. There was a VIP blogger lounge upstairs and we all got a pair of new Express boots! SO rad!
After that, my friends and I headed back to the Hudson Hotel (one of my favorite hotels in the city! ) for a little play time. I forgot to take photos all day so we did a little shoot and as you can see, I was being really goofy.
Lots of love and more fashion week to come!

I could do it all the time. Show you what I’m about all of the time. But I never will. “You see, it’s the one thing they can’t do,” he said, as I attempted to squeeze shoe after shoe into my bag for fashion week. “They can make you say anything — anything, but they can’t get inside you. They can’t make you believe it.”
You are the things you believe in. If you remain faithful, you will see that faithfulness revealed in your life. The ticking clock may tell you to act impulisvely, but it can’t make you. Willpower and magic are the same thing to me. It is so simple, but it is so true: “That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our success and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.” Shapes float and anything is possible. I chose to be aware of everything that is before me these next few “fashion weeks” and I chose to make magic out of them.
much love & light, stay awake

The first day of NYFW, before we headed to Manhattan, Rachel-Marie and I decided to rock a little Orphan’s Arms in Brooklyn. She styled the fox sweater and I sported the bunny one. The both of us have big love for this brand, so it was important that we were able to make them a part of our #teamrachel fashion week.
I’m also wearing the Damsel Stud wedge, which you can get from Miss KL. I wore these running up and down the subway in Williamsburg and L.E.S. before the Dolce Vita party. If I can do it, you can too! Also my dope Chanel half shades are from Zero UV, fairly cheap and super stylish!

Here’s a few photos snapped outside after the Herve Leger show. Honestly, it has to be one of my favorite collections this season. Every model coming down the runway had a beanie on. It was so dope. I hope to snatch a piece or two to work into my looks for my LA trip.
On the third day of fashion week, I decided to do white on white and pull my hair back. I also threw on the light pink wildfox shades for more of a “ihateblonde” look. Being recognized and doing interviews was honestly so much fun, and I am so thankful to all of you who have followed me through thus far, it’s only going to get more exciting.
