The Bisoux Girls at PIFA + Outfit Details!

photo_12

Ahhh, Saturday was an awesome day! It’s finally warming up in Philadelphia and I could hardly wait to spend the day outdoors. First we enjoyed an amazing brunch at Sabrina’s (I had been dying to try their vegan options) and did a little scouting at the Philadelphia International Fair of the Arts or PIFA. For you non- Philadelphians out there, PIFA is a $free.99  event hosted by the infamous Kimmel Center in celebration of the arts. Local food  vendors, artists and performers kept us entertained and captivated all day as we basked in the sun on faux grass matts while nibbling on funnel cake and free italian ice.

NYFW Street Style by Yours Truly…Part I

I had an absolute blast snapping pictures of the fashionistas (and -‘os) strutting in and out of the Lincoln Center for Mercedez Benz Fashion Week (although I did feel a little paparazzi-ish, I’m not gonna lie). I even had the opportunity to attend one of the shows (more on that later) and ran into some of my favorite fashion bloggers. Shooting streetsyle is something I’ve really enjoyed doing the past couple weeks, and its been a great way to meet some of the most dedicated and inspirational people in the fashion industry. As far as the outfits I noticed a lot of mixed prints, collar necklaces and color blocking. Check it out!

T.V. host and model Jackie Miranne. She nails the monochromatic look by incorporating   different fabric textures, adding layers (LOVE that zara jacket!) and topping it all off with those standout frames. I might just have to copycat this!

Designer brothers behind the brand BruceGlen definitely stood out in the crowd! They’re also from our neck of the woods, the DMV (aka DC/MD/VA) area. The duo actually designed the bags they’re carrying. How cool is that?

That top is a must have.

NYFW StreetStyle…(so far!)

My favorite part of NYFW is not actually about the new SS 2013 runway looks debuting, but the fabulous streetstyle of the audience members strutting the Lincoln Center! I’m leaving for NY tomorrow to see what I can snap with my Nikon. I’ll be focusing on the fashionista’s (and ‘os) rockin’ the boldest jewelry and keeping an eye on jewelry trends I notice. I hope I get some good shots! In the meantime, below are some of my favorite NYFW streetsyle looks from other blogs so far. Enjoy!

Bisoux + The Trew Crew

These are a couple pics I snapped at Ariel Publicity’s Digital Press Conference event we attended last week, featuring Trew Music whose music video, “The Incredible, Fantastic Experience” we styled. Networking is super important in this industry, and we had such a blast meeting other talented artists, sitting in on press interviews and watching performances by other up and comming indie musicians! Being in a house full of talented people living out their dream is incredibly uplifting. The event was hosted in a one of a kind row home in Brooklyn.  The decor deserved a post in itself, as the house was filled with playful accents like a chalkboard wall in the kitchen, various  vintage lunch box arrangements (Ariel is a collector), a vintage pac man video game machine and one of a kind art work. Check out the pics below!

Graphic designer extrodinaire and homie for life, Stephan came out to support!

The Trew Crew! This was after I ambushed his interview.

Music video director Cezil of BAPartists and I on the rooftop. He is an amazing talent and serious about his craft! We used to watch Spike Lee movies together, and now he’s making movies! So cool.

Stephanie modeling our beloved, extra large maassai earrings we copped via kokosoultice at an event a while back.

Super talented Trew performing at the event, prior to his video being released. He totally KILLED it!!! Trew’s music is in a category of its own with a hip hop base and a touch of electronica. It keeps me pumped up when I’m working out (yeah whenever that happens…) and cleaning (more likely to be happening…but honestly not so much either) or just out for a ride. He teamed up with an electric guitarist and it was…magic. Check out the performance on his facebook page HERE, and download his mixtape HERE <—a must.

Stephanie reppin’ that BISOUX!!! What ya’ll know about that???

Find me on instagram @VanessaBisoux and twitt-a!

 The typical bathroom shot. I couldn’t help myself.

Cezil of BAPartists again, cheesin’ per usual!!!

 Sorry Trew, couldn’t figure out how to photoshop the sweat but I think it just proves what a passionate performer you are ;-P

 That is all

Girl with the Black Panther Tattoo

 

Spotted this lovely lady at an outdoor festival we went to yesterday. I was trying to take the pics “incognito-style” but she spotted me (check the last pic). She was actually modeling the body jewelry for one of the vendors (and I cannot for the life of me find the business card she gave me!). I hope she sees this post so I can update it with the information! Come on universe! 

So the stars aligned and our subject, who goes by the name of Alicia,  was modeling jewelry for Independent Accents, a budget-friendly boutique who specializing in body jewelry (nice!!). Check them out HERE!
