It all started with a tweet. I was in the middle of checking my twitter timeline when I saw that the folks over at very.com were sponsoring a giveaway. The winner would receive two tickets to the Whitney Eve runway show during New York Fashion Week (NYFW). To claim your prize all you had to do was tweet very.com a pic of yourself in one of your favorite outfits. Hunny Bunny when I tell you I was on a mission. I don't think I've ever twittered so fast. Fast forward a few days later, I check my twitter interactions and yours truly was a winner. Can somebody say Hallelujarrrrr (Madea voice).
So thanks to Very.com I was gonna be amongst all the other stylish boys and girls at New York Fashion Week. Come on folks lets hear it for very.com (Clap, Clap, Clap). Now on to the show. I made it to Lincoln Center in enough time to check in, make it into the tent and people watch. Off course there were a few star spottings. Tyson Beckford, Angela Simmons, Nigel Barker and Andrea Bailon were all in attendance. I even spotted People's Relvolution, Kelly Cutrone running the show in all her coolness (remember her from Bravo's Kell on Earth).
The lights finally dim and out come the girls. What I noticed almost instantly was the bright lips donned on each model. The collection had so much to offer with bright colors, florals, eye catching prints, sequins and even chunky knits. Reality star turned designer, Whitney Port did an amazing job in offering up variety and showcasing a young, fun and sophisticated look for fall. I was beyond excited to have an opportunity to attend NYFW for the very first time but even more ecstatic to have my first NYFW experience be a Whitney Eve show . Ahhh what a twitter story. Now on to pics.
