Zoora | First Capsule Collection

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Zoora‘s debut of their Capsule Collection. The fashion show was held at the Liberty Hotel and premiered the customizable pieces ranging from $66-$98. Yes, customizable! Meaning you have a say in the fit, hemlines, color etc. You can make every piece special just for you. I’m kind of obsessed with the idea, especially because I’m so petite, this will definitely save on visits to the tailor and the best part is the price doesn’t break the bank.

The lovely Zoora team!


I HAD to try on this vest. (obsessed) Shop Zoora and the capsule HERE.

Gregory Paul AIDS Action Committee Benefit

Last Friday I had the pleasure of attending a chic event at Mohr & McPherson Rug Gallery in support of the AIDS Action Committee. The beautiful rugs set as the perfect backdrop for an evening that included 130 guest, silent auction to raise money for AIDS awareness and music by the Shilakowsky String Quartet as observers were treated with the presentation of Gregory Paul‘s premier F/W ’12 collection. The event produced by Mr. Joseph Cleveland (below) was executed beautifully and served to be an exceptional evening.

BSO Presents: Project Debussy

I was excited to be invited to the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s annual Fashion Event. Similar to Project Runway, each year they have a “Project ______” filling the blank in with different composers. This year was in honor of composer Claude Debussy. Each designer was asked to create a piece based on inspiration from the music of Debussy. The designs were then displayed around the symphony for each observer to judge which was their favorite. Afterwards we were serenaded by the BSO to the music of Claude Debussy. The concert was exquisite and it was actually my first time seeing a performance in Symphony Hall and I know this is a duh moment but the acoustics were aaamazing. Following the show each design walked the runway and a panel of judges revealed the winner.

Giggin’

Had a gig in New Hampshire last weekend in the middle of nowhere for a corporate event. Literally, the middle of nowhere, I had no reception the whole weekend. Good thing I brought my friend along or it may have been something resembling the Blair Witch project! For those of you who don’t know, I sing in cover band for weddings and corporate events on the side while I’m in school (on top of working on my own material) By the end of the night the crowd was crazyyy and so was my hair! but it was a great time as always. Something about being onstage is just so freeing and getting paid to do what I love? um yes please!
