Happy Birthday Drake

Today, Drake celebrates his 31st birthday but last night the Champagne Papi celebrated his “Re-Bar Mitzvah” at Poppy (oddly not Delilah where Drake frequents and has a few drinks named after him) in West Hollywood! Rocking a green velvet Tom Ford jacket and a Yeezy Season chain, Drake partied it up with the likes of Leo DiCaprio, Toby Mcquire and many more!

My invite got lost in the mail but I will tell you from my boy, Poppy or PAPI as they called it was INSANE! Drake popped 31 bottles of Perrier Jouet to celebrate his 31 years of life and red cups flowed with Virginia Black Whiskey!

LA Fashion Week: Who you need to know!

I’ve finally found a quick moment to breath! After working 16 hour days last week during LA Fashion Week, I’ve found a moment of clarity.

Last week, was utterly insane! I’ve met so many people, made so many connections and discovered so many talented designers. Which leads me here, my top 4 designer picks from LA Fashion Week

4. Radka Salcmannova

I had the pleasure of getting to know Radka in a interview I did with her Bedford her runway debut. Hailing all the way from the Czech Republic, Radka started out as a sculptor and somehow found her way to fashion design by working as an art director. You ever meet someone with a great energy and that translated into everything they touched, that’s Radka. Her pieces are avant-garde and remind me of McQueen.

3. Mary Me Jimmy Paul

Fun, quirky and yet still stylish, MaryMe JimmyPaul has already been seen on Rihanna, Gaga and Ariana Grande. This brand is all about having fun. While most of the made of plastic, I found myself obsessed over the fringe-tweed looks! Definitely Jean Paul Gaultier meets Moschino.

2. Bishme Cromartie

Crazy how the universe introduces you to people. I met Bishme at my niece’s birthday party but had no clue he was a designer until I saw a mutual friend at his pop up in Baltimore. We’ve seen Bishme’s custom designs on everyone from Karrueche, Andra Day to Mel B. and Jazmine Sullivan. What I dig most about Bishme is he reminds me of an Parisian Atelier, everything is pretty much made to order and you can feel the love he puts into every piece. That’s rare nowadays.

1. Noe Bernacelli

Making his US debut, Noe Bernacelli hails all the wait from Peru. Noe’s designs romantic gowns consists of intricate beading and lace on a chiffon palette. The line also featured tailored men’s suits to accompany the gowns. Reminded me of old Hollywood glam, I’d definitely could see Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt killing the red carpet, only if they were still together.

Gabriel Held, The Instagram Account You Need to be Following 


I stumbled across this account maybe a month ago on the popular, my bad, explore page on ig and I have been OBSESSED ever since. 


Vogue has coined Gabriel Held as, “Instagram’s foremost fashion historian” and I couldn’t agree more! When you divulge into Held’s insta account you learn that he is a stylist and vintage dealer who’s pieces have made there way to some pretty bad ass name, i.e. Rihanna in the “Wild Thought’s” Video!!!! 

Speaking of Rihanna, you have to check out Gabriel’s baritone rendition of “Wild Thoughts”! This baritone diva also covers Kandi’s “Don’t Think I’m Not”, (which is how I hit follow) not to mention a weekly video of him performing Lil Kim. (Sidebar: I was Lil Kim for Halloween in the 4th grade, my mom didn’t know who she was! Oh, and my sister and I got grounded for going to see her at the “No Way Out Tour” in ’97) 
As a lover of 80’s, 90’s and hip hop style Gabriel Held’s page evokes emotion for me and takes me to a certain place in my life where I was super carefree watching MTV, BET (when they both played music videos and now I’m telling my age) and dreaming of being in Vogue! 


So fashion lovers get in, follow @gabriel_held_vintage and enjoy the ride! I guarantee you will get your life on a daily!!! We all need it in these tumultuous times!
