Finally, I watched the latest episode on House of DVF and I was pleased with last week’s episode. Tiffani had the right to go home and I was very happy that Diane gave her a retail job at one of the DVF stores. I agree with Diane, it is always the best to start from the bottom and work your way up. Starting from the bottom allows anyone to grow as an individual and learn about each sector of any industry; especially, the fashion industry.
Kier showed she was the bitch of the group yet one of the few that are trainable. She was the only one accepted to the CFDA Awards with Diane. I am glad Diane and her team put her in her place because she is a sad person, complaining all the time and thinks she knows everything. She clearly showed how insecure she is as a person in this episode and hopefully she can grow up.
However, I was very annoyed that the women were also complaining about not being able to attend the CFDA Awards show and they were stuck cleaning the studio. Sometimes you just have to take it in and pay your do’s.
Now speaking of the press event. Seriously, who does not do their research at any job and let alone not knowing what the inspiration behind a collection. Even let alone professionalism is thrown out the window for some of the women. They kept on talking about themselves and were not selling the brand at all. I think these women are too emotional and focus on pride. My friend, Alexa is right when we were watching the show, she said that these women are too emotional that overshadow their work rather than focusing on the work itself to help DVF.
Next week, looks more interesting when the women go out to party….
Here’s to the weekend by just staying in and watching Netflix. On Harper’s Bazaar’s website, there is an article on, “The Best Fashion Documentaries on Netflix,” written by Lauren Fisher. There are the top nine documentaries that depict the fashion industry and include some of my favourite documentaries; for instance, Bill Cunningham New York, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorfs, and Mademoiselle C. All of these documentaries give great insight working in the fashion industry and learning about the fashion innovators. So if you would like to get inspired and learn from these documentaries I highly recommend staying in this weekend!
FRIDAYYYYY!!!! THAT MEANS WEEKEND!!! Hope everyone will have a relaxing weekend! Since it is Friday, I would like to make a homage to #FlashbackFriday. I was going through my old photos and came across this photo. It is one of my all time favourites from going on my high school trip to Washington D.C. when I was a junior. An old friend of mine took the photo of me on my camera of me skipping back to the Lincoln Memorial and this photo is so beautiful. The lighting is perfection because it beams, leaving streaks of rainbows across the photos and creates the illusion of the scenery as a painting. Sometimes I cannot believe that is me in the photo. I will never forget that high school trip since that is when I fell in love with the East Coast. Also, never underestimate the beauty of nature, its incredible what it has to offer.
TGIT! I wanted to give a shout out to my good friend, Alexa Filipe for taking this photo of Brandy and I jumping around! It is how amazing how high I can jump and this photo she had taken is breath-taking. The scenery by the lake where we live is gorgeous and it looks like a painting.
The week is half way done and the weather is getting chillier by the minute. Stay warm everyone and what are your thoughts of this quote? I think Picasso is right because art depicts more than meets the eye and has a deeper meaning. Propaganda can be art and shows what the government or the country’s people are going through. Two months ago, The New Museum had an exhibition on Middle Eastern propaganda and it was very interesting to see art in a political form. Many of the pieces gave a historic background and story of the perspectives of the refuges from the Middle East as well. Here are some photos from the museum and stay warm!
Happy Tuesday, treat yourself to some new music that was released yesterday. One of my other favourite bands, Walk the Moon release a new single, “Different Colours.” The song is amazing and they are going to play at Terminal 5 in NYC April 14th. Tickets go on sale this Friday, so be sure to buy one to see them live! I saw them live last year and they are brilliant live. They sound amazing and even better live! Have a good rest of the day!
The holidays are approaching and I will be soon returning to LA! Normally, when I go back home for the holidays my brother and I try to go to museums we have not been to while we are in town. Today, I looked up some places we never been to and one museum came in mind. The museum is located in UCLA and it is called the Hammer Museum. The Hammer Museum is mainly composed of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art works. The museum’s website is: hammer.ucla.edu.
So, the Hammer Museum will soon-to-be checked off our list of where to go in LA! If you are planning on going to take a trip to LA soon, here is a list of where my brother and I went to so far:
I know, I know, Thanksgiving has not even begun yet… However, the Holidays are coming soon and into full swing. I went to a Lord and Taylor Event last night to a meet and greet of Nick Jonas. He was there to unveil the holiday window displays of the store and he performed some of his music too. After his meet and greet; my best friend, Rachel and I saw the window displays. They were fabulous and you can see each amount of detail the store’s window display designers put in. The one that caught my eye was the ballerina puppet dolls. They spun so elegantly and each of the ballerinas had their own personality. The other windows were filled with holiday and winter cheer.
I will never forget another holiday window display that I adored and it was from H&M. In Times Square, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennet were this year’s muses for the holiday collection. I thought it was delightful to see a photo of them together and see the clothing that fit their personalities. Yet, there was one window display that was isolated. It had a mannequin alone in the snow and believe it or not….IT WAS OF LADY GAGA! I loved it! She was dragging a sack of gifts and dressed in all white to match the snow. Simply amazing!
It is also incredible that even though NYC is always filled with busy people, people stop and take the time to see how breathtaking the window holiday displays are. How exciting are the holidays?!
One of my favourite NYC street artists is Bradley Theodore and recently on instagram I saw Nicky Hilton post a photo of a new portrait of Karl Lagerfeld and his iconic cat, Choupette. The location of the street art is in the lower east side in Nolita. Keep your eyes open for this fabulous piece of art like the one I have taken a photo of that is on my website.
When I go back to the city, I will definitely take photos of the art work and more of the city! Cannot wait!
