#OOTD: “Muscles & Mascara”

Who says you can’t wear sports bra anywhere else than the gym?! Of course you can! Since I started working out (still not consistent by the way) and lifting weights, I love showing off my arms and shoulders by wearing anything halter. Halter necklines go way back to 70’s but they are obviously making a comeback. This was my #OOTD last Friday when I watched Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. Muscle tees combine style and comfort in one piece. Wear it with bandeau bra/top or just wear sports bra underneath. Give your boobies a break. 😉

My Wednesdate: Bloggers, Beer, and Banter Meet Up

20150729_185845

Yesterday was my very first bloggers meet up and I was so nervous, excited, scared, curious, and everything in between! This event hosted by Preeline, a trendsetting social platform, gave me the opportunity to meet and speak to fellow bloggers, fashion designers, event planners, fashion students, PR specialists, and CEO’s. We were brought together by our common interest in fashion and the industry.

This event was held at the Bed-Stuy boutique, Sincerely, Tommy in Brooklyn, New York where products and exclusive items from all over the world were showcased throughout the night. The space was absolutely chic and gorgeous and even more special because of the little coffee counter that they have in there. It was definitely perfect for an intimate event like this one. The event started at 6:30PM but I got there at 6 and there were people already there setting up. At first, it was very intimidating given that this was my very first meet up. I didn’t know what to expect at all. I was immediately greeted by David, one of the founders of Preeline, and spoke to me about the company and what it aims to do in the fashion and tech industry. He made me comfortable enough to eventually go around the room, introduce myself, and meet other people.

The entire event was literally networking and getting to know people in the fashion industry. There was no event programs whatsoever. Guests were offered with snacks and drinks provided by Sixpoint Brewery and Bedford Hill Coffee Bar while Preeline set up a spot where guests could take photos and have them printed out. Throughout the night, I was able to meet young designers, creative directors, photographers, and CEO’s and was able to speak about what we do and our future plans. We were able to exchange contacts for future collaboration.

When guests were not talking to other guests, we were allowed to go around the boutique and check out the amazing line of clothes and accessories Sincerely, Tommy offers.

I met amazing people last night and really hope to see them again soon! It was such an amazing experience to meet people driven by the same passion as I do. Though it was nerve-wracking in the beginning, the event turned out fun and even helpful. Hearing stories of how people started, their struggles, and their plans were inspiring. It was nice to see that the things I feel about starting a blog were almost consistent among all of us. I’m truly grateful for being able to take part of this event.

Stay tuned for my 25th Birthday Post and Tips for your first Bloggers Meet-Up.

25th Birthday Outfit

25th!

Loves! Here’s a quick Birthday Outfit I put together, something I would definitely wear! You have seen my favorite ripped boyfriend jeans on my previous posts and I would wear it over and over again. I haven’t worn it with heels neither with a denim top, so to dress it up a little bit, I would wear a nude open toed heels with a statement necklace. This set is very flexible. You can definitely wear this for brunch or even dinner then have drinks after. I would go with nude lips during the day then rock the dark lips at night. But that’s just me 🙂
