New York Fashion Week: Men's Spring/Summer 2018 - Outfits

New and returning designers, this New York Fashion Week: Men's was another fun season. The majority of the shows were held at Skylight Clarkson and Cadillac House with the starting of New York Men's Day being held at Dune Studios. The street style from the guests were fantastic! Kudos to anyone who wore more than one layer because the temperature was ridiculously hot. 

I posted a vlog on my Youtube Channel for the first two days. Please subscribe and check the rest of my videos!


The more I pay attention to menswear overseas, i.e. LCM etc., the more I get inspired to tweak my own personal style. During NYFWM, I got interviewed and a question that stuck out was to describe my style. I wasn't sure on what to say because I feel like it is forever changing. My response was, 'tomboy chic'. Is that even a thing? I'm not too sure. Here are my looks for the fashion week of New York giving you tomboy chic.

New York Men's Day is always the casual look because everything is a presentation. I kept it simple with an all white look accessorized with primary colors.
White mesh collared top: c/o Oasap 
White textured shorts: c/o Oasap
Gold booties: Office London
Yellow neckerchief: Thrift Store
Red Purse: Random store in Vegas
Blue double buckle belt: Barami 
The long slide slights made it feel so breezy, it felt like I was wearing shorts.
White criss cross top: c/o Shop Lately
Navy/Oranage loose striped pants: c/o Light In The Box
Dark brown boots: Thrift Store
Black/gold box purse: Barami
The cords/strings were actually a DIY. I got inspired by the menswear S/S18 collection from 22/04 Hommes.
Army green strapless crop top: Asos
Army green trousers: My grandmother's
Brown/Orange suede/cork boots: Zara
Camo fanny pack: Zara
I'm not usually the one to dress 'hypebeast', but honestly I love that category of style. I may or may not start dressing more in streetwear brands.
Black/white houndstooth crop top: American Apparel
Black/white strip trousers: c/o Light In the Box
Black/white boots: Zara
Off White Belt

10 Year Vegi-versary!

It has been a solid 10 years since I have become vegetarian. July 1, 2007 was the official date. It's crazy how I lasted that long and is still going strong. Now, living in New York City has definitely made it somewhat easier because there's so many people that live here that the vegan/vegetarian community is actually quite large. So, there's plenty of vegan restaurants and a section in the grocery stores for meat-less products. It's wonderful!

To celebrate my 10 year anniversary, I went to a cute little vegan restaurant called, V Spot on St. Marks and later, topped it off with vegan ice cream at Van Leeuwen.

Watch my vlog episode over this day and why I became a veghead:

Chattanooga, Tennessee

Living in New York, there is no actual fresh air. It is always nice to go home to Tennessee for a little bit to get some. While there, I decided to take a tiny road trip to Chattanooga, where my cousin and his girlfriend lives. The town is so cute and quaint! Their mountains are definitely a sight for sore eyes; absolutely breathtaking. 

That's one thing I miss about the south - the nature. They took me to Sunset Rock to see the overview of the city and then around town, which only took half of the day because it's so small.

Check out my vlog for more in depth adventures!

Traditional Lao Wedding

I am very aware this blog has not been updated in a while. I thank you guys who still follow me! I have been trying to keep consistent with my Youtube Channel and that doing both is difficult. Not even an excuse, I know, but ya girl is back.

I recently did a week trip back down to the dirty south because my wonderful uncle finally got married. The time is long overdue! It is always a kick-ass time spent with my family. If you watch my vlogs and get my derpy vibes, I definitely get it from my family.

Congratulations to the newly wed!

Behind the Scenes: Geoffrey Mac

 My most recent modeling work is shooting a lookbook for Geoffrey Mac. His designs are so colorful and unique. Every piece so different than the other with the patterns, colors, and third dimensions! It was so much fun on set. The whole team was extremely sweet! Be sure to check him out, the lookbook is on the site. I also vlogged that day, please check it out my channel, like, and subscribe!

Metallics

 The longer you live in New York, the more you learn to layer in all the different ways. This is usually tough because if you want to stay warm, your fit ends up never looking great due to the fact you choose to wear the fattest coat and scarf you own. Here is a way I chose to layer without going the route of the usual New York uniform. I went with my usual: tank under a shirt, under a turtle neck technique and added another tank on top. After this, it's onto the outerwear layering: anorak over a leather jacket. For stylish outerwear layering, I suggest checking out Simons.ca, there is a huge variety to choose off that site!
Pink Metallic Top: H&M
Silver Metallic Jacket: Zara
Black Anorak: Alexander Wang
White High Waist Jeans: Lee's
Black Pointed Shoes: Zara

New York Fashion Week: Men's F/W 2017

This season was actually cold, compared to the last fall/winter season. It snowed! Which made for great pictures, but not so much walking around in and trying not to slip. 

It is always a nice reunion with fashion folks and to see some of my friends walk the shows!
I vlogged my NYFW: Men's experience into two parts. Please check out my channel, give it a thumbs up, and subscribe!
