#NYFW Insider: Recap of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016

February 22, 2016
New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week is officially over and words cannot not explain how blessed I feel to have been a part of it. 
I attended February 10th-February 13th and in those few days my schedule was jammed with so many exciting presentations and parties, all of which had an open bar (the fashion homies were definitely looking out for the media hood). Luckily, I was invited to several events though some overlapped. Check out a recap of my short week at NYFW below:

A Toast To The Alternative Black Kids and The Families Who Just Don't Understand

February 18, 2016
I have a memory from my teen years that I've held onto for almost a decade. I was in the passenger seat of my mom's 2-door car in a CVS parking lot and one of my twin brothers was in the rear. The whole drive over I was listening to my iPod shuffle so that I didn't have to listen to the mainstream radio hip hop that my family absolutely loves. I can't remember what I was listening to but it was probably something by Saosin, Chiodos or Dance Gavin Dance.

When my mom turned the car off, she could hear my music blaring through my headphones, as was needed to drown out their music. I quickly turned it down. "What are you listening to? Devil worship music?" Yes, mother of my teenage years. Because you know, all music that isn't Gospel or Hip hop is devil worship music. Now, excuse me while I go host a seance.
