Fridays with Felicia: Volume 19

Fridays with Felicia: An intimate look behind the curtain as I share my favorite style/ beauty discoveries and ThisThatBeauty shenanigans from previous week.

Fashion Week was a blast! It’s weird but I love to see the week coming and I love to see it GO! I live for the anticipation of the tents, yet I jump for joy once it’s all said and done.

Having said all that, I wouldn’t change my experiences for the world. Season after season, it’s always the faces (most are familiar, some are new) that I love the most. Check out my “Faces and Places” rundown for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week S/S11.

First and foremost, say hello to @CNicholaC, Contributing Writer for ThisThatBeauty. This season, with the help of Christene, TTB was able to cover over 30 shows and events. Look out for additional NYFW coverage of unique product discoveries and style/ beauty stories to post in the weeks to come. For Christene’s rundown of her first NYFW experience, visit this post on her personal blog.

Here is the lovely Christene with Andre Leon Talley, Vogue Editor at Large

Here I am with the kids of @occmakeup – Katie Pellegrino and Jasen Hunt

Partying (at @candcparty) with my Beauty Blogging God Momma Extraordinaire @LianneFarbes. Is that a bottle of Mo’ in Lianne’s hand?…Yep, that’s how we roll! LOL

Bloggers who blog about the pretty because obviously they know where of they speak

@TempleofGlam @WhatsHaute ME @realcurbappeal @Roselyn

Caring is sharing. I shared my Anna Sui blot papers with Jenna Muller of Phyto. OMG, try their PhytoSpecific relaxer!

Yea, I get pretty greasy. Don’t judge me…instead, pitch me your company’s best mattifyer:)

With @chic_thrills at Aveda’s pre-NYFW event. I inspired her to go red, read all about it here

Hey @afrobella! Its always wonderful to see this blogging legend in the NYC! We attended an Aveda event together.

Yea boy, I’m official…PRESS CREDENTIALS!

With designer @loissamuels after her show (Again, dont judge my greasiness…pitch me on an anti-shine product why don’t cha:))

With the legendary Beverly Johnson…the first woman of color to appear on the cover of American Vogue in 1974.

With director Nefertite Nguvu (@loissamuels show). She directed the Cover Girl web series that I am currently appearing in.

My Bowtie Boo @jdavidrobbins (in the tents at the AOL Lounge)

As @realcurbappeal calls us a “new hit R&B group: Rouge Lips”

@realcurbappeal @liannefarbes @victoriastiles ME – in the tents

More love from Katie Pellegrino of @occmakeup at Michael Angelo’s Wonderland during Fashion’s Night Out

Cutting up with makeup mentors @kjbennettbeauty @DeShawnHatcher

Again with Director Nefertite Nguvu…and Master Makeup Artist @danessamyricks. This was in the meatpacking district during #FNO.

With celebrity manicurist @LuxeByTracyLee

It took me forever to find a pic that I could show of the two of us together where she doesn’t look too much better than me. Actress @cassiefree is too damn hot for words.

With the homie @beautylogicblog. Love this woman!

Bloggers @roselyn, ME, Actress @cassiefree, Blogger @beautylogicblog

This time we added the cutie pie @MissWhoeverUR. And is that Miss @StyleIt I spy in the background? Heeey Sarah!

@jdavidrobbins is by far one of my fave blogger sightings when on the scene

My outfit for @candcparty Social Media Event

Top: French Connection from @bloomingdales

Belt: JCrew (at least ten years old)

Skirt: Love this little power skirt. Major major steal from @bloomingdales. Brand = Aqua

Shoes: Christian Louboutin (what else!) These little booties are amaze…especially after I had about an inch of the heel cut off!

With @stilaPROartist Sarah Lucero backstage at Lela Rose. I have a slight crush…(just keeping it real)

With @TedGibson backstage at Lela Rose

There goes my Bowtie boo again @jdavidrobbins. Boyfriend and I are like the Energizer Bunny. Here we are at Robert Verdi Luxe Laboratory.

Me at DVF wearing DVF awaiting the arrival of DVF

Me with DVF at DVF wearing DVF in DVF heaven.

Oh did I mention, I’m wearing DVF with DVF at DVF???:)

Interviewing @jvincentmakeup backstage at @BriteYoungthing

With @BriteYoungThing creator Eliza Starbuck. We are both wearing, what else….@BriteYoungThing

Oh @jdavidrobbins……@ideeli NYFW Wrap Party

With @MissWhoeverUR…we’re wearing the same red (NARS Dragon Girl). Apparently I influenced her purchase!

With the glam’d up @fashionpulse. She’s always such a sweetie pie!

@realcurbappeal moving in on my thang with @jdavidrobbins. This was at @ideeli’s NYFW Wrap Party!

Sisters for life. With @realcurbappeal

What a way to end the night…and the week! Bumped into some fun loving drag-queens!

The very next day I said bye-bye (bye-girl, girl-bye) to all things fashionable and curled up in a hoodie, cut offs, and Nike sneakers!

Until next season…

xoxo

    I usually don’t get jealous but I was teary eyed NOT to see little ‘ol me in a photo with TTB. Maybe next season, maybe :)
    I’m loving the blotting paper photo, by the way.
