Chattanooga, Tennessee

Living in New York, there is no actual fresh air. It is always nice to go home to Tennessee for a little bit to get some. While there, I decided to take a tiny road trip to Chattanooga, where my cousin and his girlfriend lives. The town is so cute and quaint! Their mountains are definitely a sight for sore eyes; absolutely breathtaking. 

That's one thing I miss about the south - the nature. They took me to Sunset Rock to see the overview of the city and then around town, which only took half of the day because it's so small.

Traditional Lao Wedding

I am very aware this blog has not been updated in a while. I thank you guys who still follow me! I have been trying to keep consistent with my Youtube Channel and that doing both is difficult. Not even an excuse, I know, but ya girl is back.

I recently did a week trip back down to the dirty south because my wonderful uncle finally got married. The time is long overdue! It is always a kick-ass time spent with my family. If you watch my vlogs and get my derpy vibes, I definitely get it from my family.

Congratulations to the newly wed!


Check out my vlog from this day!

Behind the Scenes: Geoffrey Mac

 My most recent modeling work is shooting a lookbook for Geoffrey Mac. His designs are so colorful and unique. Every piece so different than the other with the patterns, colors, and third dimensions! It was so much fun on set. The whole team was extremely sweet! Be sure to check him out, the lookbook is on the site. I also vlogged that day, please check it out my channel, like, and subscribe!

Metallics

 The longer you live in New York, the more you learn to layer in all the different ways. This is usually tough because if you want to stay warm, your fit ends up never looking great due to the fact you choose to wear the fattest coat and scarf you own. Here is a way I chose to layer without going the route of the usual New York uniform. I went with my usual: tank under a shirt, under a turtle neck technique and added another tank on top. After this, it's onto the outerwear layering: anorak over a leather jacket. For stylish outerwear layering, I suggest checking out Simons.ca, there is a huge variety to choose off that site!

New York Fashion Week: Men's F/W 2017

This season was actually cold, compared to the last fall/winter season. It snowed! Which made for great pictures, but not so much walking around in and trying not to slip. 

It is always a nice reunion with fashion folks and to see some of my friends walk the shows!
I vlogged my NYFW: Men's experience into two parts. Please check out my channel, give it a thumbs up, and subscribe!

Part 1:

Part 2:

I have complied a few looks from designers that I feel need more recognition or from ones that just had an overall great collection.

New York Fashion Week: Men's F/W 2017

 The Fall/Winter New York collections started at Dune Studios for the kick off of fashion week. The location moved from Industria Studios due to conflict with The Rolling Stones. 
I think I prefer Industria, but what can you do.

Other than New York Men's Day changing venues, the rest of the week were still at Skylight Clarkson and the Cadillac House.

Here is part 1 of the first two days of fashion week, vlog style!


The first day, I went for a statement jacket and kept the rest fairly simple. Oversized jacket paired with an asymmetrical hem fringe that I did myself.

Leather Green Tassel Jacket: Thrift Store
Black Fringe Jeans: Lee's
Black Dress: TJ Maxx
Suede Copper Orange Platform Boots: Zara
I am very aware that everyone loves to go all black to match their hearts, but guess what? My heart isn't as black as most of you guys so what better way to go all maroon with a bold gold at the bottom.

Maroon Overalls: Target
Maroon Turtleneck: Thrift Store
Maroon Fur Jacket: Express
Maroon Purse: Rag & Bone
Gold Boots: Office London
My favorite color scheme is navy and black. I did just that, but added this vibrant patent red to match the patent pants.
Navy/Red Stripe Dress: Zara
Navy.Red Stripe Jacket: Zara
Red Patent Leather Jacket: Zara
Black Patent Leather Pants: Zara
White Patent Leather Purse: Dooney & Bourke
Black Western Boots: Office London
Don't crucify me, but this is the only picture I have of my outfit for the last day. I honestly was not bothered having a photo taken, until I ran into Troye Sivan.

Into the New Year

It is already the middle of the first month of the new year. I hope 2017 has been nice to everyone so far. I went into 2017 being in good company with a nice dinner at Mama Sushi and watching the ball drop on tv. Since living in NYC, it's crazy to know that the ball dropping is literally 30 minutes from where I live and to watch it on live television still makes it seem like it's miles away. Here is to another year living in the rotten apple.
