It’s finally Friday! As everyone’s busy week comes to a close, take time for adventure and inspiration this weekend. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
1. Find something artsy to spark your creativity. Whether it be a new exhibit, art fair, or just a walk down the street in your neighborhood, get out of the house and discover something that inspires you. If you’re in NYC, take a trip to Dumbo for their annual art festival. (Dumbo Art Festival)
2. With the changing seasons, we find ourselves needing a change in home decor as well. Create a gallery wall from art you have around your home or purchase something new. For a more DIY’d look create one out of magazine pages, old book covers, record albums, or any other material you find interesting. (Gallery Wall)
3. In honor of fall, bake up some pumpkin flavored goodies. Try these amazing Pumpkin Fritters with caramel sauce from Simply Delicious. (Pumpkin Fritters)
4. Experiment with this fall’s fashion trends, and go for a look outside of your norm. Whether it be the wide brim fedora or leather pants, make a statement. You never know what you can pull off until you try it out! (Wide Brim Fedora)
5. Since it’s time to pull out last year’s winter clothing, give your old sweaters a face lift with this DIY by a pair & a spare. Everyone could use a little sparkle. (DIY Elbow Patch)
With the promise of an amazing fall in the air, we have officially begun digging out our winter’s finest. We’ve always loved a well balanced mixture of men and women’s wear with subtle pops to add character. Pairing bold prints with a bit of an oversized men’s sweater creates a not-too-casual look that’s good for any occasion. We complemented the blue in the pants with a soft pink and added a nice feminine flat to finish off the look. (click to enlarge photos)
Just because the view from our rooftop is absolutely stunning.
I’ve officially been a New Yorker for close to a month now! From visitors and city exploring to UTK alumni meet ups and dancing in the streets, this has been a crazy few weeks. Here’s a small glimpse into my NYC life thus far.
Today is a day for all who call this nation home to reflect on the rights and privileges we have been given and pay our respect to those who have given their lives in order for us to do so. On this day 12 years ago, nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in a horrific act of terror, and in their honor, we will be spending our first September 11th as New Yorkers thinking of them and rocking our red, white, and blue. We will never forget!
Oh wouldn’t it be lovely to be invited to the ever renowned Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Until that day comes, we’ll resort to awkwardly creeping on models, designers, and other fashionable elite as they enter and exit the runway shows, because lets face it, we have no shame in our game.
Day 1- Lincoln Center
We spent the day outside Lincoln Center scoping out trends for Fall. Mixing graphic tees and menswear with feminine accents seems to be a popular look this season. We also noticed an abundance of leather in all forms including shirts, dresses and skirts.

Day 2- Highline and Milk Studios
We walked down to MILK Studios, a hotspot for fashion presentations, where we happened to stumble upon the Man Repeller, Leandra Medine. She may be known for her outlandish attire and witty tongue but she was gorgeous in person and adorned in a chic, all white post-labor day garment.

Day 3- Back at Lincoln Center
Street style galore can sum up our Sunday back at Lincoln Center. Eccentric hair styles were all the rage. From pink bob cuts to serious fringe, if you’ve ever considered chopping your locks and going wild, now is the time to do it. On a second note, we spotted the infamous Janice Dickinson. I’m sure you all remember her as the highly opinionated America’s Next Top Model judge.

That’s all for our rookie weekend, stay tuned for more fashion week excitement!
