If you were to see my calendar, you would either be really impressed or you would be horrified of how packed and color coded it is. I wasn’t always like this, I used to be so “go with the flow”. Now I make lists (I’m always running out of paper, and yes I keep them digitally as well) On the calendar was a free presentation in one of Apple’s stores in Soho. I told a friend to meet there, and since he was still far away, I decided to walk and catch some Pokemon (that’s another story for another day).
While making my way toward Soho to go see Mario. You know who it is, “Oh, baby you, you got what I need, but you say I’m just friend“. Yeah, you know the song, I bet you sang that, didn’t you. I’m not a crazy Mario fan, he hasn’t really come out with any new music in a little bit, not that I’m aware of at least. But the singles he did have, I was always singing. And I have a huge love for concerts (even though this wasn’t concert) it was free, and anyone who knows me, knows that “free” is my favorite number.
I guess the universe had a different plan for me, because when I passed Madison Avenue, smack down the middle of the street was an interactive pop up hosted by Calvin Klein and Amazon Fashion. Of course I stopped and asked a event staff guy what was going on. I noticed the small stage, and I already knew someone was going to come out, they just had to, I felt it in my bones. I asked him who it would be and he didn’t know. He checked his email and told me ASAP. In my mind, I’m like okaaaaay, but ASAP who, ASAP FERG, ASAP ROCKY, the mob has a few people.. he just looked at me like I spoke Chinese. I grabbed his phone and read the name for myself. I knew it, ROCKY. I made my way inside.. duh! Like I’m going to go see Mario now (if you ever see this Mario, no offense, I still like you).
I’m not gonna lie, I was getting a bit antsy, especially because it was starting to get to packed, and you know people when something is free, pushing and shoving. But I was already pretty hype because you have to soak it in, that you don’t always know everything. You can’t plan every single detail of your life. I got to experience a wonderful moment, and if my friend wasn’t running late, I wouldn’t have walked, I wouldn’t have bumped into a better (who an compare?) event and be up close to such a handsome man…. oh yes ROCKY… you are fine… any way (cough cough) Check out these shots I grabbed. Love!
Oh, and you can see some more photographs of concerts that I captured on millistephaniaphotography.com

“Gucci Gucci, Louis Louis, Fendi Fendi, Prada, Basic bitches wear that shit so I don’t even bother.”
My mother had the most gorgeous collection of Louis Vuitton bags. When I was younger I used to hope that one day they will be mine. Who am I kidding I used to borrow them all the time and never give them back. In high school I will show up & strut down the hallways like I was hot shit, knowing damn well I couldn’t afford that.
So here I am today, I wear no name brands, hell, it’s hard for me to even match anymore. Give me basic clothing and I’ll go on with my day. But that doesn’t mean I can’t admire from afar. (My wallet agrees that I should look from far too)
The Louis Vuitton exhibit is taking place until January and it’s free, so if you haven’t gone yet, there’s no excuse not to go. Just don’t forget to RSVP before you go, since they scan tickets upon entry.
Today’s outing was nice little adventure after work. I met up with Phil and Kat and walked right in (after I stuffed my face with a deep dish pizza from the corner shop, that I do not recommend).
I knew I wanted to take a lot of pictures today and thought I would have more to work with, especially since Phil’s such a fanatic with his luxurious eye for brands. In London he arrived with a bright yellow duffel with LV print that was absolutely gorgeous. –Guess who decided to arrive wearing a Fendi hat instead? — Really Phil!?
I shifted my focus on the pieces that were being showcased instead. The first floor started off with the history and timeline of Louis.
We saw his early works of canvas and his trunks that were made of wood. The cute little old school cars with his name that will transfer all the luggage. My favorite thing was guessing who’s luggage belonged to who depending on its contents.
The higher up the floor, the more modern the pieces became.
If you find yourself in the city and looking for something to do, go enjoy some fashion history. Here are a few pics I snapped of our tour.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to attend art shows. It’s been a little while, but Fem.Is.In was a great way to get me going again. Seeing Swoon, Queen Andrea and Lady Pink‘s pieces in person again, are always a reminder to get my craft together. The push to start creating and stop making excuses. Great show Ladies!

Hello my lovelies.
Remember when I said I will be showcasing my work at an all women art installation? No!?
Well, ok, I’m telling you now.
You are all formally invited to present your beautiful souls at The All Alpha Female Experience. I will be presenting new pieces alongside other talented women. And what better way to celebrate women’s month, than by supporting women!
The gallery is located at 1009 Broadway, Brooklyn NY 11221, and is closest to the M, J & Z lines on the Myrtle, Broadway stop. The show will start at 8pm and run until 1 in the morning. So no excuses!
There’s a small $10 fee at entry, which is suffice for the free wine and appetizers you’ll be able to gulp down.
I can’t wait to meet you all.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to visit the Facebook page for the event or contact me below and I’ll be happy to answer any questions.

Surprise dates are the best dates. My guy sends me a message ” Guess what?” I reply with ” You won the lottery!?” He laughs, ” Close, I won something.” At this point I’m lost, so I just stay quiet and wait for him to fill in the blanks. ” I won tickets to a Mets game!”
Sweeeeet…. I mean, I don’t know how that’s close to winning the lottery, however it pretty damn awesome that he won tickets. He tells me, he signed up for a raffle at the bar close to his job, and never even expected to get the call. I’m already out of work and and stop by one of those touristy shops you always seem to pass by. I didn’t necessarily want to invest in anything Mets related, since all my life I’ve been raised to be a Yankee Fan. So I settled for blue and orange hat that read “New York” in bold letters… my own way of saying ” I could wear it again to a Knicks game if it came down to it.”I have never been to Shea stadium, now Citi Field at all. I’ve gone to many Yankee games, and even use to work at the stadium a long long time ago, both the old and new one. Citi Field seemed cleaner and family friendly. Yankee stadium is overwhelmed with rowdy fans. ( I secretly love it) We ordered some chicken tenders with cheese fries, and about 3 beers back to back. What’s a game without a few beers?
Chris kept giving me a face every time I mentioned Pirate’s Starling Marte was my boyfriend, all I could do was crack up.
We had a nice time rooting for separate teams, especially when we kept rubbing strikes in each others faces.
I lost anyway..or should I say the Mets did.
