#RavenTakesNY - Day 2 - The Garment District

Some of you may know I am here in NY taking the city by storm lol. Today I decided to explore the Garment District. Part curiosity and part mission, I need to find a stud because I'm missing one on a pair of thrifted shorts. Anywho I took to my iMaps found where a few landmarks were and just started walking around. So I went to the Garment District and Bryant Park. Here are some pictures from my Journey. Stay tuned for more posts documenting my journey in New York and the surrounding Burroughs.

"Yet let no empty gust of passion find an utterance in thy lay, a blast that whirls the dust along the howling street and dies away; but feelings of calm power and mighty sweep. Like currents journeying through the windless deep." - William Cullen Bryant

This summer I've been obsessed with kimonos, they're light weight a add a bit a flair to any outfit. This one I got on sale at H&M in June and have been wearing it almost once a week ever since. This print and color goes with so many different items in my closet that it's perfect for any occasion. Below are 6 kimonos that won't break the bank and are to sure to keep you summer chic.

POPSUGAR Open House

Dress Rachel Pally | Necklace Zara | Bag Gregory Sylvia | Heels Mossimo | Earrings Forever 21 | Bangles Downtown LA

A few weeks ago I was invite to the POPSugar offices for Blogger's Office Hours. In true fashion I was late, as I usually am smh. I promise to be on time next time. :) Anywho my fellow bloggers and I were educated on various blogging topics including scheduling, brand partnerships and collaging. Drinks were provided by Pressed Juicery and Fiji water. To conclude the afternoon we were given our choice of goodies from the Sugar Babies Cupcakery Food Truck. I choose cheesecake and 3 cupcakes, Sweet and Salty, Red Velvet and Bacon. To top all of that off we were gifted the cutest Dogeared Key necklace. I can't wait to wear it, please see below.    

As far as my outfit. I wanted to be comfortable and ladylike at the same time. The dress is the best combination of femininity and comfort. I added a subtle pop color with my silver and blue statement necklace. I kept the rest of my palate neutral and added a berry lip to finish the look.

Muse of June - Summer Launch


This past Sunday I also had the pleasure to support a great friend and big sis of mine, Tieko Nejon. She launched her fabulous line, Muse of June, all handmade by her. The line includes hand dyed coverups, hand dyed wood necklaces and hand etched and cut necklaces, cuffs and bracelets. My favorites were the middle finger cuff and the wood bead choker necklaces. I'm still deciding which color I love the best, debating between blue and yellow. The blue went really well with this dress so I have big decisions to make lol. Tieko is such a lovely spirit and her collection truly is a representation of everything I know her to be. I'm already excited for the next gathering. Love you Tieko.
