Teen Vogue’s Fashion University.

Two weekends ago I worked (and attended) Teen Vogue’s eighth annual Fashion University, a weekend long series of seminars, classes and workshops with some of the industry’s top fashion designers, models and starlets. As with every annual Teen Vogue event I’ve attended for the first time this year, I was completely blown away by our team that put the weekend together, as well as the 559 girls from 26 different countries that paid their way to be there. Kelly Wearstler, Thakoon and Alexa Chung were in attendance, to name a few, along with our that moderated each class. Prior to the day of seminars, we hosted a kickoff party at Express; following the day of seminars, we invited the girls to celebrate with us at the Topshop store in Soho. I have never been so tired in my entire life (my feet are still recovering,) but what an inspiring weekend.

It’s very much fall in New York now. There’s that song by Billie Holiday, “Autumn in New York,” that I keep re-playing in my head on my mornings to work, walks to the grocery store. There’s also the opening scene of You’ve Got Mail, with Tom Hank’s “Don’t you just love New York in the fall?” quote. Sometimes I wonder if the effects of this city will fade on me over time, or if the things I love about NY now – like the first hints of a changing season – will always resonate as something to look forward to.

My sister came to visit this past weekend, and her departure may have made me sadder than saying goodbye to any other person that’s come to visit me so far this year. We shopped, ate, talked and ate some more. We made trips to places we’ve visited together since we were teenagers in the city on vacation, and made memories at places I know we’ll be returning to come her next trip.

Chris was in town for Labor Day weekend, during which I spent nearly 4 days eating my weight in some of my favorite dishes around NY: Malbec at Extra Virgin, cheese from Aria, shrimp tacos at Mole (and a Kelsey Grammer sighting). Curiosity got the best of us come Monday, so we headed to Montauk to see what all the fuss was about… Duryea’s lobster roll reviews may have been some influence on our decision, but my constant longing for Florida’s beaches made the 3 hour train ride to get there a little more bearable. It was a grey day with some rain, and with the height of the season just ending it was almost a ghost town (which I decided later I was thankful for.) Truthfully, it was no Destin or Rosemary, but it’s nice to know if I ever need to see the sea, the Hamptons can provide some consolation.

She Said I Think I’ll Go to Boston.

I was in Boston for about 24 hours this past weekend for one of our final strings of our #BTSS events. Having never been to the city before I was excited to explore. Architecture of times past peaked through modern works of art and carefully maintained green grass, while potted flowers and plaques with history facts rounded nearly every corner I turned. Overall it was a beautiful few hours following a successful event… I’m anxious to return on a weekend when I have time to discover all of Boston’s charms.

A few pictures from my weekend in LA with Teen Vogue for our kick-off #BTSS event. I left a little sunburnt, and my heart a little fuller after witnessing, once again, just what the Teen Vogue brand is all about. So so grateful to be a part of this amazing team. xo

LA Loving.

I’m in LA this week for our Back-to-School Saturday event. I left the city early Wednesday morning and have been living in the land of 75 degree weather and skyscraper-tall palm trees ever since. LA is really competing with my love for NY, especially since the atmosphere and weather remind me so much of Florida. I’m once again combining a beautiful city with my dream job… How did I get so lucky?

If you are in LA this weekend we are hosting a fashion show and concert TONIGHT at The Grove starting at 4pm with our amazing Editor-in-Chief, Amy Astley, Disney’s Shake It Up, Bella Thorne, and “Wings” artists Little Mix! Tomorrow we have a whole other day of activations back at The Grove from 1-5pm – giveaways, fashion presentations, DIYS… hope to see you there!
