Detroit Does NYFW Series

Sep 15, 2015

Eastern Market

Detroit, MI

 

Eden: My name is Eden and I’m a life + style blogger, actress, filmmaker and new mompreneur. I blog under Chic in the Tropics, which I’ve had since 2009.; and I have a small but full-service video production company called Reel Clever Films.  I’m pretty old in the blogosphere! When I’m not busy shooting something for fun or my business, some of the things I love doing is to check out a movie, studying new techniques about my craft, and of course, shopping!

 

Q: What was the inspiration/story behind your look?

 

Eden: I’ve never been a gal who owns a lot of long, flowy dresses, and yet, I zeroed in on this gorgeous electric pleat goddess dress. I wanted to make it very “me” and street-ready by adding the usual suspects from my closet – a black fedora, my go-to leather jacket, and laceup flats. That’s me trying to go out of my usual comfort zone.

Q: How would you define your style?

 

Eden: Contemporary, parts edgy, parts minimal, parts androgynous. A lot of black and white separates. I like to keep things basic with a bit of a kick. 

 

Q: Who are your style icons?

 

Eden: Kate Lanphear, Alexander Wang, Erin Wasson

 

Q: Where do you like to shop?

 

Eden: As a new mom with a budget, I’m definitely a huge fan of bargains! There is no awesome bargain I will refuse, haha. I love shopping at Saks Off 5th, Barney’s Warehouse, and my absolute favorite: Nordstrom Rack! Ebay has always been pretty good to me lately when it comes to awesome fashion deals.

Q: Have you ever been to NYFW, if so when and what was your fave part?

 

Eden: I have never been, but it’s definitely in my personal bucket list! Even if I don’t get personally invited to a show (I’m still dreaming for the day, haha) , just to be able to see the NYFW experience for myself and see New York so alive and filled with fashionistas is awesome in itself.

 

Q: Who is your fave designer?

 

Eden: It’s very hard for me to pinpoint one particular designer, but my top five includes Alexander Wang, Rick Owens, Rad Hourani, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, and my best friend, Philippine fashion designer, Yves Camingue. 

 

Q: Whose show are you most looking forward to this year?

 

Eden: Aside from some of the designers mentioned above, Viktor and Rolf! You can always trust them to do something unexpected and jawdropping.

Q: What do you like about NYFW more, the runway shows or the street style and why?

 

Eden: I would say a little bit of both. You can always trust the shows to usher in the key trends for next year; and as a personal style blogger, the street style aspect is so perfect to take sartorial cues from. 

 

Q: Links to any social media pages?

 

Eden: Aside from my blog, you can also connect with me through Instagram here and my facebook group page here.

Here to brighten up your Sunday timeline with lewks and a story 🙋🏾‍♀️ On Friday, I was about ready to run away from it all. Emails. Folks messaging me with nonsense. Having to deal with book tour stuff. I was irritable and didn’t want people talking to or looking at me. I took a good ole depression nap and woke up with such a bad headache. “I’m leaving!” I told myself. I started looking up rental cars to go somewhere, anywhere. But no rentals were available. I slammed the laptop, wondering how the hell I was going to get away with no whip. The next day, I told myself that I wasn’t going to do any work or social media for 24 hours (we gonna start small. It’s hard 🤷🏽‍♀️). And that all of the work can wait. I asked me, “what would you like to do today?” I took an almost 2-hour train ride by myself to Coney Island and with my rolling luggage, I created editorial images in the amusement park, I ate chicken fingers and fried Oreos, I got my fat ass on not one but three scary rides (I’ll make a post later about how to navigate amusement parks as a fat person). One was a rollercoaster, bitch, that almost took my hijab straight off 😂 I took my shoes off and walked on the beach. I watched the sunset. I found a random party on the boardwalk, parked my luggage, and danced with strangers. I’m proud of myself because I get anxious going places I’ve never been alone. But I did it anyway. I had fun. I was spontaneous. I went on an adventure. And was my own company. Have you ever felt the need to just “run away”? What do you do when you are just overstimulated and overwhelmed? What solo adventures have you embarked on? Let’s chat. P.S. Can’t wait to show y’all these fire pics! #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #wamfam #editorial #hijabi #beautyblogger #covergirl #monochromatic
