Icon: Remembering Bill Cunningham


Last Saturday, we lost one of the greatest mavericks in the fashion industry ­— Bill Cunningham. Known for his blue French workman’s jacket, Cunningham’s keen eye has defined fashion trends and inspired the art of street-style photography.

I’ll never forget the first time I encountered Bill Cunningham. Within the crowd of fashion’s elite, I spotted his iconic jacket as I was leaving the Skylight Clarkson Square for NYFW: Men’s. It was a very surreal moment because to me, he was equivalent to a mythical creature. I guess I expected him to be part of fashion’s elite versus standing behind the velvet ropes and observing them.

Beauty: It Doesn't Get Any Sweeter Than This — Glossier x Morgenstern's Push-Pop Collab.


Usually New York windy days calls for Netflexing and chilling — and I'm being literal; or maybe not. But what happens when your sweet tooth is out of control and the treat that you want is not on Seamless??? 

This was the predicament that I was in yesterday but I knew exactly how I was going to satisfy my craving. I took a huge risk leaving my nice and warm apartment to take a trip to one of my favorite ice cream shops, Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream NYC — and boy, did I found myself in for a treat.

LOLs: The Glass Ceiling: A Game for Girls


How hilariously, but terrifyingly, true is this parody game?! Similar to The Game of Life, the fictional game shown in the video mirrors adult life events ... but from a females perspective. Comedy Central did an amazing job creating a video that is humorous yet it sheds light on an issue that has been overlooked for centuries, female discrimination. 

Of course Comedy Central didn't stop there. They had to include a male Caucasian version called "Privilege", which unsurprisingly is fully equipped with stacks of money and endless opportunities (thumbs up).

Style: Feelin' Neutral


The Fall/Winter '17 runway looks have been inspiring me to wear more neutral monochrome ensembles. What I love about this look, is that it's stylish, edgy, and can be worn any time of the year. Try creating your own monochrome outfit using all grey, tan, ivory, beige, or taupe pieces and you'll see how easy it is to create a chic outfit. I promise you'll look perfectly styled without having to think about it.

Tip: Try using different shades to add depth and dimension.
