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

Jordan: This look was actually inspired off of a few different NYFW shows for this fall/winter season and was spotted on Olivia Palermo shortly after. 

Q: How would you define your style?

Jordan: Honestly I can’t define my style, I’m a Jill of all trades, well…of all styles.  I think the crux of my style revolves around ease, comfort and wearing what makes me feel confident regardless of if I am dressing for work or the weekend.

Q: Who are your style icons?

Jordan: I honestly draw inspiration from so many people, but if I had to name a few they would be: Esther Quek, Olivia Lopez, Mary Seng, Christina Caradona and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. 

Q: Where do you like to shop?

Jordan: Everywhere! Lol no really, I don’t like to limit myself because you can miss out on some gems that way.  My favorite places to shop are definitely ASOS, H&M, and TJ Maxx.

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

Jordan: Sadly I haven’t been yet, but I’m saving up for next year 😀

Q: Who is your fave designer?

Jordan: Gaaah, honestly I don’t hang on designers like most fashion people but I definitely enjoy Altuzzara. 

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

Jordan: I really am interested to see Pyer Moss, especially since he’ll be showing a video addressing racism. 

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

Jordan: Street style hands down!  Unless you’re a fashion maven or celebrity a lot of the ready to wear clothes just don’t seem functional to me, but the street style always gives me awesome ideas on how to re-wear what I already own.

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.

Q: Inspiration behind the look?

 

Mel: Spain! The Spanish style is very simple but bold and dynamic. I wanted to work with that.

Q: Who are your style icons?

 

Mel:Isabella Blow, Gia Carangi, Angelina Jolie and Mae West

Q: Where do you like to shop?

 

Mel: Forever 21 and online. Most of the time I really have something in mind that I want and it isn’t always “modern” and I don’t want to be bound by that, so I search the world wide web!

 

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

 

Mel: I have not been, but they won’t be able to keep me out for long.

 

Q: Who is your fave designer?

 

Mel: There are so many to pick from really! I just like a designer who stays consistent. I consistently like what they produce.

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

As you can see, none of us are going to be attending Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. (Pause) *Cries eyes out* So kidding. Although some of us are slightly disgruntled to not be apart of the shows, street style, and glam after-parties with mega supermodels, we decided to have our own little NWFW inspired shoot in none other but the D!

So, JB (with the fur) came up with an idea. Let’s play in clothes (what we usually do anyway) and come up with what we’d wear if we were going to attend NYFW. Genius idea. And how can I deny a photoshoot with the baes 🙂

Our goal here was to fake laugh, which turned into full blown cackles, witch laughter, and hooting. lol

Along with our photographer Scott of Worldiction Arts, we welcomed Nigel, the cool videographer.

Shout out to Alua Aumade for the black and white handmade neck piece (jabot). He’s also got some dope bow-ties. Support your local businesses and check out his Etsy.

We’ll be posting pics of the entire photo shoot the entire week of NYFW on all of our blogs. Stay turned, fashionistas.

After a long day of shooting and having my period start, I finally made it to Columbia University. Our panel starts in an hour. I’m scared af. As I always get super, deathly nervous before a speaking engagement. 
How do you get over your fears? I need tips ASAP because I’m trying to be a baddie like I am in this pic yesterday at @nylonmag 🤸🏾‍♀️
