Between The Shows

10/09/2013, Celebrity Gossip, Current Affairs, H&M

Over the weekend, I stopped by at Omar’s in the Greenwich Village for the H&M x Vogue “Between the Shows” party. Fun times all around! Notable attendees include Doutzen Kroes, the ferocious Alessandra Ambrosio, Leigh Lezark, the Jonas Brothers, Constance Jablonski and more. My personal highlight of the night though was when the super lovely Taryn Manning came up and introduced herself as I have posted a screenshot of her character on the show “Orange is the New Black” on my instagram feed a couple of days ago. I’m beyond obsessed with that show. Obsessed!

The Finalist

23/08/2013, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, H&M

As you guys already know, I’m currently serving as a judge for H&M’s latest ’50 States of Fashion’ social media contest to promote the launch of H&M USA’s e-commerce site.

I represent the North East region, which covers 9 states, my home state New York included. Some interesting stats — we’ve received over 1,500 photo submissions from my region and over 16,000 votes were submitted on those photos. My job is to pick the finalist representing my region from a group of “well-liked” semi-finalists. Not an easy task when the submissions represent a wide variety of personal styles, aesthetics, etc.

I’m proud to announce Francisca (Ala Mode Wearhouse) (instagram: alamodewearhouse), from Massachusetts, as my personal choice for finalist representing the North East region. As a finalist, Francisca will receive a $250 H&M shopping gift card and a chance to win the grand prize (a trip to NYC + a major shopping spree).

Congrats Francisca!

On me: white t-shirt, vest (click HERE) and leather pants (click HERE), all from H&M’s Fall 2013 Paris Show Collection.

H&M’s 50 States of Fashion

01/08/2013, Current Affairs, H&M, Sponsored Content

Do you shop at H&M like I do? Well, I’m thrilled to share that you, my fellow US residents, can now shop online on H&M’s new e-commerce site (http://www.hm.com/US)! To celebrate the launch, H&M invites you, my dearest readers, to take part in their 50 States of Fashion social media campaign.

All you need to do is to post on instagram a photo of yourself wearing a look from H&M and hash-tagging it #HMShopOnlineNY with the last 2 letters being the abbreviation of your state. For example, if you live in California, you need to tag it #HMShopOnlineCA, so on and so forth. All of these submissions will then populate on the 50 States of Fashion microsite where visitors can “like” their favourite looks. After a 3-week submission period (Aug 1 – 21, 2013), the semi-finalists will be determined by the most liked photos from each state. There are five judges, each representing five regions in the USA — Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest and West. Each of the judges will then select a finalist from their regions. The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 H&M shopping spree and a trip to New York City to attend an event during New York Fashion Week.

I’ve been selected by H&M to be one of the five judges for this campaign and I’m representing the Northeast Region. This includes New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, etc.

31/12/2012, Current Affairs, H&M, Margiela

Every blogger and their lap dog are doing ’2012 in Pictures’ posts as a feeble attempt in humbleblogging humblebragging. Between you and me, I don’t even know where my 2012 went! I’m not gonna sit here for hours just to regurgitate memories from this year. It’s all about moving forward and charging ahead! With that being said, 2012 has been a banner year and I’d like to thank you all for the support — my beloved partner, my supportive family, my extremely loyal friends, my loving agent, my generous advertisers and sponsors and of course, my dearest readers. But most importantly, I’d like to thank myself for being awesome. Happy 2013!

Sleeping Beauty

20/11/2012, Current Affairs, H&M, Margiela

A few weeks ago, H&M wanted me to host the livestream of the celebrity-packed launch here in New York but alas, I was booked for a project in Hong Kong. I also missed out on the pre-launch shopping event becauseĀ  I was in Tel Aviv. I thought I was gonna miss out on buying the pieces that I want. I was like ok, this too shall pass, not a big deal. And then of course, the powers that be at H&M sent me a care package filled with many gorgeous items from my Maison Martin Margiela x H&M collaboration wishlist – a couple of coats and jackets, a few trousers and a handful of accessories. A big thank you to you guys! So happy I didn’t have to queue to fight tooth and nail with random people. Phew.

My favourite piece from the collection is this behemoth of a duvet coat. It’s MAJOR. I love the silhouette! I could think of a thousand and one ways to wear this beauty. I thought I’d wear it with a metal belt this time around for a futuristic feel. I can’t wait to rock it over the next few weeks. Perfect for that early morning stroll to Starbucks…
