Dressing Down to Dress Up

Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you want to dress up without having to actually dress up? SAME. Even I sometimes get lazy to wear a suit. I work for the former Mayor of NY, and wearing a suit often + looking my best, or at least trying to, is kind of a must, but of course there are days that I opt out and try dressing up using textures, ties and tie-bars (the Three T's). Today, I'm breaking up my gray suit, ditching the blazer and dressing down my dressy trousers with a polka-dot shirt and a quilted jacket. These pants are meant for looking sharp in the office and after hours. They're super comfortable, and versatile too.

Am I French Yet?

The answer to that is....probably not. There's something about this laid back casual look that gave me (and my friend, Isaac of Isaac Likes) the Parisian vibes. First, the jacket is made by one of my favorite parisian brands, Sandro + paired with a pair of flannel trousers and a chunky knitted turtleneck, two garments which were seen a WHOLE lot on the streets during Europe Fashion Month. What else? A pair of Stan Smiths, which if you are from or visited Europe, specifically Paris, in the last year you will notice there is a huge infestation (in the best way possible) of these Adidas kicks. I mean, we should practically go to Paris and play the "Let's take a shot for every time we see a pair" game (who's in?!).  So, in other words what I'm trying to say is...I'm French. Right?!

Backstage Moments #VeryPerry

Twice a year editors, bloggers, designers and fashion appreciators congregate to check out the latest and greatest from designers, including the chaos, glitz + glamour that comes with it. Perry Ellis invited me backstage and gave me a front row seat to the BTS fun. While the models were getting their hair did + faces done, Victor Cruz, Joe Jonas, Joshua Sasse & Frankie Alvarez stopped by to wish Michael Maccari the best of luck. There's a lot of work that goes into these productions, I mean A WHOLE LOT. There's months of planning, thousands of dollars spent, the casting of models and producing a show that essentially lasts no longer than two whole minutes. I'm just happy to share with you guys the moments beyond the show and give you a glimpse of the people that made this happen. Happy Fashion Week!
