Friday was such a hectic, but amazing day. After work I headed to Lincoln Center for the Joy Cioci Spring 2012 Presentation. I hung around Lincoln Center for a while then went to grab a bite to eat before I headed to the Bloggers Night Out Event at Pranna on Madison Avenue.

I had such a great time at this event. There was an open bar and giveaways all night long. I won this awesome fringe dress from Lulu’s. We talked about our hectic schedules for NYFW. Of course we took lots of photos and swooned over each others’ outfits and accessories. Take a look at a few photos from the night

What I Wore

I loved Allison’s (Fashion Enthusiast)  Badgely Mischka dress. The netural colored heels complimented the dress extremely well.

Melissa from O So Chic also looked amazing in this floral print peplum dress.

Preity from Fashion Solace looked great with her signature Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s. I loved the intricate beading on her dress. It was gorgeous.

Patrice from  Looking Fly on a Dime, Danielle from Style and Beauty Doctor, Adrienne from Me, My Hair and the City, and Melissa from O So Chic all looked great and were ready to party.

I love going to events where I get to meet my readers and people that I connect with on Twitter. Cherrie, from Cherrie Amore  and I comment on each other’s blogs all of the time and connect on twitter so it was great to finally meet her. I loved her polka dot dress that she complimented with purple heels (even though you can’t see them).

Here is Gabrielle from Design Muse. She looked cute and comfy in her polka dot shorts, chiffon blouse and knee boots.

Here is Ashley of Ashley 4 Emergy, Nike of The Style Circuit, and Preity of Fashion Solace

Here’s Preity with her fab shoes from LuLu’s. I will be posting pics of my dress soon! So stay tuned!

Wednesday night, I attended the Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2011 Preview hosted by Mintbox. Mintbox was hosting a giveaway and they gave away 100 tickets to this event. Unfortunately I didn’t enter, but my friend Kim did and she won. She was unable to attend the event so she asked if I would like to go instead. So thanks Kim for the ticket! Now on to the event.

The event was sponsored by Cake Pops, Theater Bar-mixologists, and Arrojo Studio. You were able to mingle with fashion bloggers like Keiko Lynnand Rebecca Minkoff herself. Arrojo Studios were on hand giving you tips on how to switch up your hair and doing tutorials as well. Theater Bar’s Mixologist served us three delicious drinks, watermelon, strawberry, and grape. Last but not list Cake Pops provided us with, well Cake Pops,think of a slice of cake on a stick.

Mintbox and Rebecca Minkoff were hosting a giveaway as well. They gave away 5 amazing bags. You had to twitpic the bags you thought were part of the giveaway. So if you follow me on Twitterand saw 30 twitpics, I was trying to win. Unfortunately I didn’t win but my blogging buddies Monroe of Fashion Steeleand Preity of Fashion Solace did so congrats to them!

We all chatted for about 2hrs, had drinks, at cake, and marveled over the Fall 2011 collection of bags.

Here are a few photos of the handbag and apparel collection taken on my Blackberry (forgot my camera in the car)

I love the black bag with the bow and stud detailing. The black and toffee briefcase style clutch is very unique and perfect for fall. One of my favorites would have to be the zebra print tote. I love animal print.

I love this briefcase. It is perfect for me to carry all of my papers in when work starts. I love the red quilted bag also with the zebra detailing. This bag also comes in black.

The motorcycle leather is a staple for the fall.

The leopard skirt was TDF.

About The Black Weblog Awards (Source)

The Black Weblog Awards was founded in 2005 to give recognition to Black bloggers (and those of the African diaspora) which were largely overlooked by other Internet award events online. What started out as a barely-known event has now grown into an international showcase. With participants from over 90 countries, the Black Weblog Awards stands out as one of the most widespread Internet award events for Black bloggers.

To date, the Black Weblog Awards has recognized nearly 180 blogs in over 30 categories. The Awards has also been featured in several mainstream and online media outlets, including NPR, CNN, and others. Winners of the Black Weblog Awards have also went on to appear in other media outlets, like MSNBC, the Huffington Post, BET, and many others.

From 2005-2008, the nomination period went from August 1-15, with finalist voting from August 16-31, and winners announced on the first Friday in September. In 2009, due to overwhelming demand, we changed the nomination period to include the months of June and July, and reserved the entire month of August for finalist voting. In 2010, nominations will run from June 1 – July 25; voting will occur the whole month of August, and the winners will be announced on September 1.

Historically, the Black Weblog Awards take place annually from August 1-31. Winners are announced on the first Friday of September.
