Brand spotlight Prpgnda

Photos by: Bobby Raffin                              Jacket by: Prpgnda                      Shirt by: Rhythm Livin                        Pants by: GAP

When I was in NY last week, I got the chance to check out the new pieces from PRPGNDA. The pieces were fabulous for lack of a better word. The best part about it is that it's actually going to be out to the public by March at Macy's.

This jacket was one of my personal favorites from the collection. If you've been following my Instagram, you'd know that I wear it pretty much everywhere. Why wouldn't I though? It's a combination of my two must have pieces, a denim jacket and a varsity jacket. It's a win win winner.

NYFW photo diary day 6

Photos by: Bobby Raffin/random NYC citizens

Dream Downtown has literally made this trip to NYC a dream. No pun intended. But honestly, the beds are like freakin clouds, the showers are like rainfall in the jungles of the amazons...well except less dangerous. I feel really blessed to be calling the Dream Downtown my home away from home.

Today was such a great relaxing day. I spent the entire day with bobby, whether it be at the Prpgnda showroom, in a human aquarium (pool), nintendo world, lego world, or even the streets. Bobby's one of my good friends and I'm really lucky to have him in my life, especially with me roaming the streets! His tall demeanor to scare away any stray pokemons thugs. But it really was great checking out the Prpgnda showroom, which will be out in Macy's this coming march. Check it out when you get the chance.

NYFW day 4 Photo Diary

 Photos by: Bobby Raffin/Bethany Struble                             Jacket/pants by: GAP                        Shirt by: Rhythm                           Backpack by: Coach

NYFW day 4! Can't believe that my week is almost at an end. So sad to say. So many great adventures still await though! Today was a more lax day, spend the day just cruising around NYC and spent the night at Hillsong NYC and a "We The Urban" lounge. Also I stepped on a frozen lake. I'm such a rebel, what can I say? ;]

NYFW outfit day 3: Smooth Criminal

This photoshoot has got to be one of the more awkward outfit shoots I've done. First of just to set the mood, here is a quick story. Imagine you're coming home from work, you've had a rough day, all you wanna do is pump some iron and listen to your favorite backstreet boy album. So you get to the gym, it's a nice day, some cute chicks are working out near you, you've got your sexy muscle shirt on, you've got Nick Carter serenading you via walkman, and you're ready to pump some iron. Halfway through your third bicep curl, two dudes fully dressed up decides to take some pictures in the window behind you. Well, if this dude is you, then sorry I bothered you bro.
So awkward taking outfit posts while a bunch of people are working out, but I guess thus is the life of a blogger. I couldn't help it, I loved this window. The Dream Downtown Hotel just has so many beautiful areas to shoot in! Maybe I'll do a different shoot later or if you guys want I'll do a hotel tour on video or something. IF YOU WANT THAT/VLOG, lmk and I'll do it if enough people want it.

Aside from that, this suit top was gifted to me from Black Lapel, which is a suit tailor/personal suit company. A company I PERSONALLY LOVE. They're so great to work with, amazing customer service and the suit is tailored to a TEE. It fits great and if you've been keeping up with my blog, you'd know that FIT is the one thing that I stress the most. Anyways, hope you guys have all been well and to those of you who read, thanks for reading! Again, leave a comment if you want that video log/tour video.

Snow playday! First time in snow, obv. Everyone was staring at me for taking pictures in the snow. Apparently no one frolics in a blizzard, well who knew? I never got the memo.

NYFW day 2 photo diary

 Day two in NY! And what did I do? I PLAYED IN THE SNOW, well not really. It was kind of buffeting my face with small ice shards, not exactly the best play-weather, but I did do a fun shoot that I'd love to share with you guys later on today. But what I do want to share with you all today was my exciting adventure meeting with the infamous, Alex (Danger) Maier, Dillon (Thread & Salt), and Jace (Plain T-Shirt)! All of which are just as amazing in real life as they are online. 

So Alex hit me up earlier that day out of the blue to do a shoot with him, and of course, knowing me, I can't turn down a good shoot. So I ventured off in the night to shoot this fun little editorial for CFDA (COUNCIL of FASHION DESIGNERS of AMERICA). It should be out by next Monday, and soon as it is, I'll upload it here for you all to see. And if you follow my instagram, you should already know what a fun time I had in the snow, here is a sneak peek of my outfit post coming later today!
