New job + monochromatic outfit deets

While in NYC for fashion week, I met with the managing editor of NY Amsterdam News, Kristin Fayne-Mulroy, at a cute little coffee shop in Harlem. We had chatted a few times through email before about me writing the travel column for the newspaper, but this was my first time meeting her in person. Writing is […]

A night with the queen, DVF // NYFW

The New York Fashion Week event I had been looking forward to the most was my evening with Diane von Fürstenburg! DVF is a former princess, turned designer, turned fashion icon!
