Hanging out at Lincoln Center is one of the best things about fashion week. That is where all the enthusiast, fashion crazed and a little bit jaded all collide. All the sponsors, Pepsi, DHL, Maybelline NY and Starbuck created fashion related installation. Here is a glimps. Video coming!
I did something I never done before – I went to an event and just enjoyed myself. Since the store was infiltrated with bloggers armed with Canons and Nikons – I took my time to talk and celebrate fashion with Tucked, Grungy and some new friends. ScoopNYC is the lick! I wore my 2BD necklace which was quite a hit and I brought my pal Jacob.
People are afraid of Jacob and Jacob is afraid of people. >_<
So here is how the txt messages went:
Y: Can I bring Jacob
J: Yeah I guess
Y: How is it
J: Picking up
So then I show up with my dog… and Justin is like… oh that’s Jacob? Lol.. And then I went to go fetch 2 lime Belvedere gimlets

One of the things that really stood out to me this week during Social Media seminars is what one of the panelists said: Well isn’t fashion just one big insecurity. That really got me thinking about the values people place on fashion and the spectrum goes from ‘matters a lot’ to ‘it doesnt matter’. Of course in a room of NY’s finest, everyone skews to the left – and everything matters a lot to them from head to toe. The one thing I really noticed what how nervous Jacob was. Usually dogs pick up the energy of those around him. If that was true, we were in a room with the best dressed anxious folks. Nevertheless, the party was a great turnout and the Belvedere drinks lubricated the conversations.
I was on the F train last week heading to the Pro Keds event and I saw this fine fella. I noticed his square handkerchief in his blazer pocket, I noticed his Varvatos-esque boots and of course his fingerless gloves. But more so it was his magnetic aura that interesting people all possess. Anyway, in my previous post about how ‘he has to match my fly‘ – I am always amused when my thoughts manifest into reality. I got off at 2nd street and left for the event.
Then I called Joey telling her I swear I felt like he wanted to talk to me too lol. But I was too chicken. So here is the twist of Guy #4… you ready? HE WAS HEADING TO THE SAME EVENT. So anyway needless to say, he is just as awesome as I thought. Justin Bridges, stylist and owner of Tucked LLC. Til the next one…
