Summer Lovin’ ….us too!

…and what a crazy summer its been!? Its been a while since I’ve had a minute to LOOK at photos I’ve taken this summer, much less BLOG about them! We are getting settled here in Eugene…and thought I’d make one BIG blog about our summer adventures. It’s hard to believe all of this happened in a few short months! I loved the craziness of our summer…but it is nice to slow down and get back into a routine.

Dre seems to have inherited my love for the beach and the pool–and so any moment that we weren’t busy packing…Dre and I were at the beach!

I asked 2 of my beautiful sisters to come out for a farewell New York tour and side road trip to Ohio for a wedding. We had an amazing time with LOTS of laughs! Here are a few of our ‘Farewell NY’ photos…

We cruised all over the city-including the High Line, Washington Square and the ever entertaining and unique Coney Island!

After 4 years of attempting to get tickets…I finally got tickets to a taping of The View! What a coincidence that my sisters happened to be here at the same time..AND within weeks of us leaving! I’m a huge fan of Barbara Walters and was once again completely charmed by her effortless grace. Whoopi on the other hand…maybe not so graceful but totally HAlarious!

We also jacked tickets to Jimmy Fallon–always high energy and super fun! We got to see the uber cute Elijah Wood, the beautiful Freida Pinto and of course…The Roots!

Here are 2 screen shots from the show…as always…the Jimmy Fallon show is full of shenanigans!

One of the most important parts of our summer was Wayne defending his thesis…and passing! I couldn’t be more proud of this super smart, super handsome man!

In my eyes there is nothing more stunning that a beautiful Marchesa gown…but the Niagara Falls may just give Marchesa run for their money! We had to make a quick trip to Canada to exchange our visa’s…and it was a fantastic little getaway. I’ve seen a zillion photos of the falls…and yet when you see them yourself…you are at a loss for words. Beautiful. Simply Beautiful.

Size 00

It is amazing how fast things can change in the modeling industry. One year you are the girl next door American model Karlie Kloss walking in NYFW…the next, a Supermodel and Victoria Secret model, Karlie Kloss, who is too huge to walk in NYFW! Male model favorite Sean O’Pry mentioned that this may be his last year walking runway, as he is getting too old (he is only 22!). Our blog posts about models are always our most popular posts (and don’t worry folks…we DON’T know WHO you are or where you are come from…so creep on our site and creep often!).  Here are some of my favorite models from this season’s fashion week.

Candice Swanepoel ranked #18 by Models.com, best know for Victoria’s Secret fame.

I wish I had another blog of the male hotties from Fashion Week….but unfortunately I didn’t see any! I guess just the timing of the shows–and the days I attended didn’t work out. Too bad. So let me just add a photo of my favorite male model of all time….

Fall Fashion Week Adventures, Day 3!

My third and final day at NY Fashion Week consisted of 2 big shows…Tracy Reese and Diane Von Furstenberg. I always love a Diane show, it always brings out a variety of interesting people.

And so…back to regular life…back to trips to the park and drinking juicy juice….and just 6 months to convince one (or more) sisters to come for September Fashion Week!!

Beautiful people leaving Tracy Reese:

TV Personality Louise Roe-I just had to show her cute little outfit!

Kate Mara: So I have to admit, I had no idea who this “Kate” was and had to google her once I got home. Interestingly she is from Bedford, NY–just  30 mins away from where we live.  Her Great grandfather was the founder of the NY Giants, which explains why people were commenting to her about the Giants winning the superbowl. Also…her sister is much talked about Rooney Mara-of Dragon Tattoo, who knew!?

Canadian Actress Shenae Grimes (of 90210)…she had fans (even crying fans?!) waiting for her. Weird, no?

Nikki Reed…again

Model Selita Ebanks and boyfriend Terrence J (host of BET’s 106+Park). Cutest couple!!!

Lovely to see the beautiful socialite Tinsley Mortimer again-heading into Custo Barcelona.

Random sighting…Sandra Bernhart

Former SuperModel Beverly Johnson.

More beautiful people attending the Diane Von Furstenberg Show.

Editor in Chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour.

The beautiful Barbara Walters-she is seriously so rad…I can’t even explain!

Actress Molly Sims, rockin the pregnant glow!

Oscar DeLaRenta

Diane Sawyer

Making grey hair look good, Bravo’s Andy Cohen

Designer/stylist Rachel Zoe and her husband TV personality Rodger Berman. Their baby is the same age as Dre, so Rodger and I had a little chat about our dear sweet babies…how they are crawling and getting into absolutely everything! Yes, hoping for a playdate soon;)

Editor of Marie Claire Joanna Coles, recently seen on Project Runway All Stars as the designer’s mentor.

Marie Claire Fashion Director and Project Runway judge, Nina Garcia.

The beautiful Coco Rocha…what show didn’t she attend!?

Fashion Blogger Bryan Boy.

And last of all, one of my favorite fashion bloggers (and total gentleman) Karl-Edwin Guerre. This guy is one cool cat.

Behind the scenes at Porter Grey

Backstage at Porter Grey!!!

For those of you unfamiliar with this line, Porter Grey is an American contemporary sportswear line, founded and run by sisters Kristen and Alexandra O’Neill.

I love this photo…I think that being backstage is so glamorous! The models, the clothes, the designers, celebs etc. But while that is all true…some parts are simply not so fun. It’s cold. It’s boring as you wait for the next look to get ready. The reporters and photographers are always bumping into each other or getting into each others shot. It’s very small with a hundred people all crowding in. And everyone thinks THEIR job is the most important one of all…PR, security, papps, models etc…  ANYWAYS….I love the reality of this picture….two cold and uncomfortable, bored models amongst all the chaos.

The hair team was led by Rebecca Naftzger for Cutler. “She blow-dried the models’ hair with a round brush and curled it with a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron while leaving out the ends. It created this big subtle wave, which complemented the clothes perfectly.”

Hairstylists lead by Rebecca Naftzger

Jose Rivera,the makeup artist leading the Sephora PRO Beauty team emphasized clean skin; wind-blown cheeks to indicate an outdoorsy, ready-to-face-the-elements strength; a rich and saturated black lash line and an understated and deconstructed lip look with scattered golden shimmer.

A few looks from the show

Ruffian Fall Fashion Show

What a fantastic way to start my day-The Ruffian fashion show! Brian Wolk and Claude Morais are the designers behind Ruffian. Their press notes stated they were inspired by “viewing bronze sculptures of Henry Moore set against the backdrop of English estates.” You can easily see the english influence-very modest and sophisticated. I am personally in love with these hats…GORGous!

See the video below for the shows opening. Its my favorite part of a fashion show as it sets the tone for the whole show! As luck would have it…I got seats in the second row (!!!) and am seated right behind photographer Douglas Friedman, Actress Amanda Setton and Lorenzo Martone (Marc Jacobs ex).

A few looks from the show.
