First Meeting as a Fashion Ambassador




Like promised before I wanted to do a quick post sharing a little bit about my first meeting as a Fashion Ambassador for Nordstrom. We got to met our awesome director and learn all about the perks that we get as an Ambassador. I feel so blessed to be part of such a prestigious group of young and hard-working fashionistas. There are many expectations for us to follow in order to be a good example as the next generation taking over the fashion industry.

We got to discuss the influences of social media and how it effects the way we dress. I think this concept is huge because we are all using social media not only for fun, but for school and work also! Whenever a clothing item or accessory is trending we instantly know about it because we saw it on Instagram already. We are really shaping the world!

Off to the Races




I'm still too young to officially make bets, but I did give my parents some good pointers of which horses I thought were going to take the lead. I'm new to the racing world, so my main method was just picking out the horses with the coolest names! Luckily we did end up winning a couple times. 

Saratoga Race Track is a great mini summer getaway because it has three of my favorite things: stylish fashion, great food, and horses! I love going to cool towns with even cooler people and this is one of those places.

Auto Immune Metro Style Fashion Show

A special message from the owner behind the fashion show and CEO/founder of Sabre' INC: "I Sabre’ Thank you for your time and consideration. My goal and mission is to share my remarkable story to the world. Auto Immune Metro Style means a lot to me, and the people around the world who suffer, from an auto immune disease. I am trying to make a difference, with the help of great and knowledgeable peers … I am delighted to say I will be able to announce and spread the word as I have been doing for the Last 7 Years!  I will overcome my fear and deliver a testimony like no other as I unveil that I to, have an Auto immune disease, called "Graves”.  If I can put a smile on a child’s face for one moment, erasing the memory of being stuck … Or give that Special Child a toy, or a friend a hug, speak with Congress, research cures I will search high and travel low to make a difference until God calls me home!"



Saturday I was in Midtown Manhattan attending the Auto Immune Metro Style Fashion Show. This show was nothing like any other fashion show I attended in the past. It not only had some of the best children fashions I've ever seen, but I became more aware about the importance of finding a cure for auto immune diseases. 

From the hilarious hosts to the talented performers, I really enjoyed this one. I also won a charm bracelet from The Glitzy Girl which I am loving. I bought five new charms for it already!  

While I was there I even got to meet a ton of amazing people including Madeline Stuart, the beautiful teen model with down syndrome. She is a social media superstar and this girl is going far!

Taking on the Trades





Earlier this week every fashion forward buyer was at the Javits Center attending the junior and young contemporary trade shows. I had the chance to work alongside a multi-line showroom providing the latest fall fashions to buyers from all across the country. Many of the buyers were boutique owners and others were on the e-commerce side. 

I entered the show bright and early with my kale smoothie in my left hand and a show badge in the right. There were tons of people hustling and bustling around and everyone was dressed to kill. Getting to see what the wholesale world was like was a great learning experience and obviously being in a huge room filled with fab clothing was heavenly!
