Lucky me was able to ring in my 27th birthday with a brunch hosted by Kitchensurfing that included endless mimosas & my best gal friends. My favorite videographer, B. Daly, made a short film that makes me smile each time I watch it. Not only do birthdays & brunch just go together but I'm lucky enough to have a great group of girlfriends that are creative, hilarious, & straight up supportive. After brunch, we continued housing mimosas until it was time for a night out on the town at Alibi, thanks to Tablelist.
If you haven't heard of Kitchensurfing (especially Chef Stephen Coe) I suggest you get on it, real quick. A personal chef comes to your house, ingredients included, & cooks you a fabulous meal - whether it's just you & your bae for breakfast in bed or a large dinner party of close friends. & if you have yet to use Tablelist to book your VIP tables at all of the hot spots around town (use code 'ALLIEWEARS' for $50 off), check out my review here & get bookin'.
Happy Birthday to ME!
"& that's what I love about fashion.. you wear what you want because you like it. Fuck everybody else."
Amen! I can't stress enough that fashion should be fun.. wild, different, creative, crazy, confusing. But in the end, you can't wear anything without confidence. I mean, I just want to hug the life out of this guy wearing a sequined jacket & metallic flats. Chances are he walked out of the house that AM with rainbows of confidence oozing out of that sick floral backpack.
Lincoln Center attracts quite the fashionable crowd during NYFW. If I see a style that/s fierce I quickly attack them for a street style pic (click here to see last year's street style!) so I can show you what life is like when walking the streets. Brights & florals were all the rage but I saw a lot of people rocking head to toe black, keepin' it simple & chic. I also snagged some ideas on how to transition my summer clothes into cold weather looks, like those neon dusters she paired with an oversized black blazer.. spot on. This post concludes yet another successful NYFW.

This is what I wore on day 3 of NYFW when it was ungodly hot & humid & I had no choice but to wear my hair up.. yup. Post shooting on one sick roof deck, Diana & I hopped over to the RewardStyle party on the top of the Empire Hotel which was.. amazing. Amazing is an understatement, really, as some of the best of the best bloggers in this big bloggin' world were gathered on top of the world, meeting & greeting while sippin' cocktils & eating cake balls.
Y'all know I love color, but this trip I tried to pack smart keeping my outfits neutral & only bringing one pair of heels & one handbag. How I survived, I'm not sure. To be quite honest, I didn't really put too much thought into what I was going to wear this Fashion Week. As much as this blog revolves around what I wear & how I wear it, sometimes getting dressed is an after thought & what's more important is being in the moment, surrounded by good company & gals who inspire me to reach for the stars, all while sitting on top of the world.
