How many people do you know haven't ever shopped in the GAP at one point or another? Unless you've been living under a rock, Gap Women/ Men, Baby/ Kids and Body have all been embraced by us or even hated at times for loosing its original luster. All the while, we've supported this brand & its growth throughout the years, thus making it forever relevent. Rest in peace Mr. Fisher, you've left a major mark in the Fashion Retail Industry.

Some of you may wonder where I go when I'm not blogging here on All Things Fly. Well, here's your answer. A big shoutout goes to all of the beautiful & intelligent ladies I have the pleasure of sharing my writing with.
Fashion's night out debuted on Thursday September 10th and it was indeed successful. I along with my partners in Crime and special a special guest gallivanted throughout New York City like a bunch of fanatical fashion obsessed fools. The city was on fire! You can't get energy like you get from this city anywhere else anyway, but when it involves fashion it’s on a whole other level. Our first stop was Macys' herald Square unfortunately Ms. Wintour was at the one in Queens. Upon my arrival I spotted the beautiful Amber Valetta & Tommy Hilfiger making their way out and into their cars. As I entered I heard the screams that lead me to the Fragrance department where Michael Kors gave out autographs and smiles. The very talented Rachel Roy was on the second level taking pictures with fans as her very new very affordably chic "Rachel" line flew off the hangers. Check out one of the pieces on Ms. Deejay! I just missed my opportunity for the meet & greet, but next time, right? Fifth Avenue was bombarded with people shopping, & browsing. Nine West looked like they were giving out free shoes, [imagine that] Juicy Couture was a mad house. Henri Bindle was flowing with alcohol, custom shoe makers and socialites. Down the street at Sean John, Mr. Sean himself was entertaining guests with Cypha Sounds on the ones & two's and a line outside that looked like BB Kings on a Saturday night. We reached SoHo where Rhianna was hopping from Store to Store "causing a stir" as twitter so eloquently put it. My favorite & latest import Top Shop got a visit from Vanessa & Angela Simmons while yours truly checked out the Boutique's clothes live Q&A section and took a bite of their delicious cookies. All and all a great way to spend an otherwise chilly and low key Thursday evening! I'm already anticipating next years' festivities!
It's been eight years but it feels like it was just yesterday that this tragedy took place and broke the hearts of millions. I'll never begin to understand how human beings could commit such heinous crimes against other human beings. The reality is though, we can't disect what we can't identify. So for everyone that has suffered, families and friends of victims, my heart will always go out to you. Stay strong, keep your faith and God Bless.
Let me just start by saying that I happen to love Harper's Bazaar. It was to be one of the more eclectic fashion magazines we have access to on News stands. However,I have serious issues with the September Issue. There are two covers. One with Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester, and one with Agyness Deyen dressed as Michael Jackson. Beyond the cover, the tribute spread and is featured as well as it is in this blog. I don't mean to make this a race issue, but the fact that it is a race issue, I'd figure I'd raise the issue!! If they were paying tribute to let's say...the late James Dean I could understand why they would choose Agyness Deyen to wear his leather jackets, ripped denim Jeans,and pose with a cigarette in her mouth. But that isn't the case, this is the African American Icon Michael Jackson we're talking about here. And, yes, everyone has opinions about Michael Jackson, ok, fine, that's another Blog. This photo shoot was done with the intent of honoring him,his style, charm, talent, and his ability to captivate millions of people with just one move. If you wanted to capture that fully, why wouldn't you choose a model of the mans' race? I'm just saying; was Naomi Campbell unavailable or something? For crying out loud, she was even featured in his "Keep it in the closet" music video! Do some research -Make the connection people!Even if she specifically wasn't available I'm sure they're plenty of other beautiful women of color who would've gladly done this "Pretty young Thing"shoot. The fashion is impeccable of course, all the jackets featured are beautiful, as they would be. But I'm honestly so perplexed, I can't enjoy it. All in all, I think this was a poor choice, Bazaar gets two huge thumbs down from me on this. In the world of twitter this would be considered a #MajorFail
