So New York is in the throws of New York Fashion Week – Autumn/Winter’12.  There are models, designers, makeup artists, bloggers, photographers running all over the city!

So last Thursday, Mattie from Mattielogie hosted a mixer for fashion bloggers of colour.   I loved the idea of meeting other bloggers of colour especially in an industry like fashion.  Since fashion and beauty go hand in hand, I found myself at Pranna.   Pranna is a SouthEast Asian restaurant that is beautiful and huge!  I definitely need to return for full dinner.


I decided to make my lips the focus in keeping with the current treads of bold lip colours.  I paired a grey sweater dress with a bright , purple/magenta lip, Smashbox’s Be Legendary Lipstick in Vivid Violet.

I adore this colour.  I’ll do a review on this one soon.  I kept the makeup simple, a soft smokey look, which I actually work to work that day and then added more liner and the lipstick.  From day to night just like that….I wore a twisted bun.
