Hi Darlings, I had such a great time attending the Essence Street Style Awards and block party while in NY. I had the opportunity to speak with the designers, see the amazing wraps they designed for the Chevy Cruze and spent time covering the events with blogger Gabi Fresh and Karen Blanchard. The block party was held at the Dumbo Lofts Archway, and it was a blast!
I think my favorite part of the block party, aside from having so many of you come and say hello, was watching Jazmine Sullivan perform. I also really enjoyed watching all the amazing street style in attendance and of course hanging back in the VIP room.
The Chevy Cruze wraps were amazing and although Melody, Kimberly and Ron all did an amazing job my personal favorite was Ron’s Chevy Cruze wrap. I can relate to him as an artist, and I love his point of view. He is also genuinely nice, and we had a great time chatting him up.
After having had a full day covering the block party and taking pics with fans, we headed off to get dressed and ready for the Street Style Awards. We arrived just in time to get a few pics of the red carpet, walk the red carpet and of course mingle. The loft was beautiful; the table dressing was amazing and we had some stunners in attendance. I had a little time to chat with June Ambrose and Jay Manuel. I also ran into a fellow blogger who I had been wanting to meet for some time, Ty from Gorgeous in Grey.
By then end of the night, we were fashionably exhausted! It was great to be in the presence of some amazing and inspiring men and women in the fashion industry. Essence and Chevrolet did a wonderful job putting together the inaugural Street Style Awards and representing those who inspire through their personal style daily. I can’t wait for next year!
