Essence Street Style Block Party

Essence Street Style Block Party 2014

Essence Magazine kicked off New York Fashion Week with a huge Street Style Block Party under the Dumbo Archway. I headed out with my son and friends in tow and we had a blast. The event was hosted by Vanessa Simmons and featured a performance from Jasmine Sullivan, guest celebrity appearances including Tracey Ellis Ross, fashion shows, and a showcase of up and coming designers who each created custom art for the Chevy Cruze. There was also massages, makeovers and face painting provided by Sheamoisture along with vendors, food and a whole lot of fun.

Everyone was walking around with pineapple drinks from a vendor around the corner that looked deelish but the line was way too long so we didn’t get to try it 🙁

I ran into a few more friends and met up with my NYC Fashion Blogger girlies at the event. Overall it was a really good time, good ol’ wholesome family fun. I kept my outfit simple and comfortable…

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
