Museum and Coffee in Venezuela

17 May

Happy Friday Fashion Femme Fatales! I hope you’ve had a asplendid week and are heading into a fantastic weekend. As promised, today I’m writing more about my travel in Venezuela some days ago. At one point during our group was separated either by having to work (like my hosts: sis and hubby) or backpacking around the waterfalls (other sis and cousin). Mom and I teamed together with our wonderful tour guide, Johann, and fantastic driver, Henry, to hit the streets of Caracas. One of our more interesting stops was the Post Facto African museum in Caracas. The curator (originally from Egypt) showed us his vast collection and spoke of expansion plans including a new restaurant and library. Some of my favorite pieces were the metal big cats symbolizing the actual felines who’d protect princesses and the rooster trunk where brides-to-be would keep their new sheets. The artifacts are from all over the African continent ranging from Benin, to Cameroon to Ethiopia to Nigeria. After the museum, we headed to a famous vintage site – the Hotel Avila. There we enjoyed a perfect cup of Venezuelan coffee by the pool while watching one of the local celebrities prepare for her nutritious cooking show. The traffic was quite packed there (something the Venezuelans are used to like my fellow Washingtonians), but we made it back to my sister’s in good time for the next adventure.

“I Miss You!” from New York Fashion Week

13 Sep

Hey guys!

I relaunched last Thursday, but failed to realize the readers I have with WordPress wouldn’t automatically transfer over. In addition, it is challenging for me to comment or “like” your posts, because of leaving WordPress -darn! I will do research to figure the remedy for that problem. In the meantime- please follow me here:

I’ve been at New York Fashion Week for 7 days and I’d love to share with you the wonderful fashion I’ve seen on and off the runway!

I miss you!!:) Here are a few pics from this week…

The Relaunch!

Hey femme fatales! I’ve missed you all! It’s been a long week (finishing promos at work, organizing my fashion show schedules, dropping off Sparta at mom’s to get “pupsitted”), but i’m excited to say I’m Big Apple
bound ready for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!! Special acknowledgements goes to my sister Blair, creator of UrbanWOM and dj extraordinaire, who kicked butt on the new look for my site! Speaking of a new look, Fab Freddie blessed me with an asymmetrical bob last night. I said goodbye to the blonde streak-at least for now.:) I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the shows and parties I attend giving you whatever sneak peeks i see from 2013! Oh and check out Freddie at http://fabfreddie.net/
Such a phenom of a stylist!!
