New York Fashion Week

Wow! I haven't blogged in months. I apologize to my readers, very unacceptable! I've been working very hard this past summer. One of my main goals this year was to go to New York Fashion Week and showcase my work (Networking). It really was hectic for me and it took a lot of hard work. I've also started building up my portfolio in Styling. I get to New York for the first time, AMAZING!!! I didn't want to go back to Houston lol. It was totally a different scene in a good way of course. Mind you, I missed my flight but I waited for the next flight to NYC that same day. I thought I wouldn't make it and started getting discouraged. However, with God on my side, things turned out GREAT! I met so many dope people, Stylist(s), Designers, Photographers, e.t.c I couldn't be more happy and grateful. I attended three different Fashion Shows. Kinda wished I went to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Show but my stay wasn't long enough. Maybe next time! Anyway, Let me start posting pictures lol 
One of the first Fashion shows I attended called Fashion Couture. I'm also selling this dress which was designed by someone in China. If you are interested, please contact me.
Of course, My friend came to support and she looked Amazing! :)
Amazing Designs! I had the chance to meet and talk with both designers and the fact that they loved my work, I was on cloud9. Lol
Designed by Danny Nguyen from Houston, Tx!
The one below is designed by Helen Bender from Germany. I couldn't capture all her pieces except this. However, I made a video on instagram which you can go check out. She specializes in Lesbian Bridal Pieces. 
The Second fashion show I attended was by Monsieur Belange, A Nigerian designer. His pieces were Unique and Sexy. The male Models were......OMG!!! Gorgeous. Lol Wish I took pictures. I'm sorry, I was so captivated by their looks. Lol Thirst Alert!
The Amazing Designer! Check him out on instagram: @BrandonBelange
I also met @Owusbrown . My new friend lol, Follow him on instagram and he is also a stylist.  I got more invitations to fashion shows in a different State but school wouldn't let me :(
 I can't even begin to explain how happy I am to have met these people and more. I'm truly blessed to have gotten support from my friends and most especially my FAMILY to encourage me to pursue my dreams.

P.S: Don't EVER let someone else's criticism or lack of faith in your abilities stop you from pursuing a dream. Have faith and believe in yourself.

The wait is over! How has everyone been? I know, I know, I need to focus a little bit more on my blog. I've been super busy with Summer School, working on a lot of things and preparing for this big trip coming soon. Can't say yet! ;). Had the opportunity of collabing with my Fav Red Head and Stylist today. Cool, Down to Earth Chick and She truly inspires me. She goes by the name Jamie but known as "La Snoot" (Brand Name). Today was definitely fun and I look forward to working with her more. I have a previous post on La Snoot. Link here http://redzflyhigh.blogspot.com/2013/01/noota.html

GIVEAWAY GIVEAWAY!!!!!

This will be my first Giveaway on my blog. I have come to terms that I will not be wearing one of these pieces and I'll explain why. I will be giving away two beautiful vintage statement blouses, yes I said "TWO". So make sure you enter the competition.

I've had this blouse for two years, NEVER WORN at all. The details in the back is just Gorgeous!!! I'm sad to give this away but I feel generous today :) I never really wore it because around the chest area, it's a bit tight. This is a Small or a S/M and of course, it could be buttoned all the way to the top ;)

Now this is also a Gorgeous piece. Very 80's, love the bow tie in the front and it has little white pearls around the V plunge neck area. It has been worn just once. It could be either S/M/L I believe. These are all "statement pieces" I would wear once (speaking for myself) and I'm sure I cant be the only one that doesn't like to repeat outfits.
My Model rocking her Christian Louboutin :)
This is me on the left when I wore this outfit and I am a Medium.

Hair, Hair, HairGeneticks!!!

Hey everyone! I've been asked so much about my hair and makeup via tumblr so I made a video but it could not upload. Sad! I spent 16mins explaining lol. Smh! So I guess I'll give you guys enough details by typing ( something I was trying to avoid). Ugh!
I get my hair from girl, CEO of HAIRGENETICKS! She resides in Houston, Tx. When it comes to hair, I do NOT mind spending a lot of money because I love good quality hair which I can use over and over. At first, I was quite skeptical about trying out hair from a different person but I decided to. What can I say? I love Hairgeneticks. I've been rocking with her for a while now. Its actually quite affordable compared to others I've purchased in the past.The textures are beautiful, good quality, soft and very minimal shedding. Let's face it, EVERY hair sheds even if its a strand or two, that's shedding lol. Her comes in Indian, Peruvian, Brazilian,Malaysian and so forth. She ships worldwide by the way!
On my second or third post "JUNGLE FEVER" I had installed Hairgeneticks Peruvian straight hair( same hair) below. I dyed it from natural black (1b) to red and from red to jet black. I've had this hair for 7 months now and I love the fact that I can re-use the hair over and over and still maintain its texture. Check it out when it was red  http://redzflyhigh.blogspot.com/2012/11/jungle-fever.html

The beautiful lady and CEO/owner of hairgeneticks. Trust me! You'll not regret ordering hair from her. So get to ordering. For more pictures or questions, contact her!

On my next post, I'll talk about my makeup and also i'm excited, I'll be doing a giveaway on two vintage statement pieces(blouses). Be sure to enter the competition when it's posted up so stay tuned!

ALL GOLD EVERYTHING

Hey Lovers!!! I really do apologize for not blogging in a month. Wow! Its been forever....A lot has been going on (good things of course) lol and then School. I have to take school seriously so I can graduate sometime this year or next year spring. Hope everyone has been doing great? 
I have two looks for this outfit. If you like a more classy look, go for the first one and if you're more Edgy, A RockStar, you name it, go for the second look which I prefer. Don't be scared to stand out from the crowd. About this shirt dress, I found it at my local thrift store for $9. Very good steal *thumbs up* Although it's a XXL, I had to get it. In real life, I'm a Medium lol. What really stood out and attracted me to this shirt was the Tiger at the back and it is Versace inspired.You could pair it up with some pants, high waisted shorts, skirt, wear it as a dress. Also, tucking it in isn't necessary or you could even tie it up. Depends on the look you're going for. Love, Love the versatility!!!
The Hat? My favorite accessory that I own right about now. It will make any simple outfit NOT so simple. I also got it from a thrift store but it was a bit pricey. I had to get it, it's sooooo ME. The shoes? I wore it in my previous post http://redzflyhigh.blogspot.com/2013/02/givenchy-inspired.html  which was purchased from asos. I hope everyone enjoyed this post? It's always fun shooting with my girl Adaeze *waves* :)
P.S: I have an instagram now so follow me on my fashion journey.
