Photos & Videos: People, Places, & Things, My 2014 New York Fashion Week Experience!

Hey AML people. I am finally back in California and truly, there is no place like home. I enjoyed my time away at New York Fashion Week and had a blast, overall. Below are some of the people, places and things in pictures that capture my New York Fashion Week 2014 experience.(For my Nigerian readers, I also enjoyed some mean pounded yam and efo riro (soup) while in NY that a friend I was visiting hooked me up with. I was over the moon! LOL!)

Now I have to get ready for the new week! Catch you all soon.

All work and no play? We can’t have that. So, more time for self and to do tourist things including:

Visiting the Empire State Building. We went all the way to to the top and could see the entire view of New York City! Fun, fun, fun! By the way, in case you like the Bracelet I rock, it is by Darrell Roach who I met at the Korto show and who gifted me with the unique bracelet. I have not stopped receiving compliments everywhere I have gone with his bracelet. Also, my shirt is a men’s shirt by Open Ceremony. It fit like a glove.
