Here is a link to an article written about my experience as an extra at the 2013 YMVA! A few highlights included seeing Arcade Fire and M.I.A live. As well as meeting one of my favorite directors Spike Jonze.

Saturday felt like a hazy, washed up dream from summers past. I went to Coney Island with a couple of my close friends to see the faded store signs and smell the hot dogs. The sun light was perfect and very different from that of my hometown in California. Here in New York, light tends to be more blue while on the west coast, natural light tends to be warmer, more yellow.
There was something very special about that day. The beach we sat on before walking through the crowded amusement park was almost a cathartic experience. It was a new sight and a unique breath of air.

Living in New York, one must take advantage of all the happenings around the city. With this in mind, I grabbed a couple of my friends, told them to dress to the nines, and then boarded the subway headed towards the Lincoln Center.
We went to see what New York Fashion Week was all about. We kept our expectations low because we had no way of getting into any of the shows, especially the one that was taking place when we arrived: Rebecca Minkoff.
Moseying around the plaza we spotted many fashionable size 2 females, and copious amounts of men dressed in velvet suits and patterned harem pants. What we didn't expect was that some photographers wanted pictures of US, silly students from NYU.
After the excitement of being photographed, we walked over to the main entrance of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Building, and out popped Rumi Neely and Bryan Boy heading to lunch after the Minkoff show!
I asked to take a picture with them, barely able to breathe, and ta da! Fashion Week magic was made when I posed with these two iconic fashion bloggers. I really do love NY!

I have taken quite some time off blogging, months at that. However, I feel like there is no better time than now to log and capture my daily adventures. I am using this post as a new start to a blog cataloging my life in New York City as a film student at New York University.
Check back for posts on fashion, film, food and culture. Also to read my attempts at witty writing!
