Project Las Vegas, held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre, is a mega trade show or fashion event rather, featuring some of the world’s most advanced contemporary fashions. Project LV is taking place this year from Feb 13-Feb 15 and I’m on deck with the Blogger Project, curated by Marcus Troy, covering the 3 day show on my blog, twitter, Instagram. I spent day one running around, getting acquainted, snapping photos and catching up with my fashion peers, and finally got a chance to catch up on some much needed blogging.
Check out some highlights from Day 1 and keep up with me on Twitter or Instagram for updates.
Pharrell made his rounds and stopped by his Billionaire Boys Club booth.
Sandbox Studios (based out of New York) has an awesome photo studio set up where brands can either shoot a looks for a look book or attendees can take some fun photos, which they print on the spot and take with them. The photos can also be downloaded online via a username and password. Sandbox Studios is based out of New York and provides a full service or a-la-cart that produces visual content from one to thousands of photos. Be sure to stop by the booth and have a papparazzi moment.
Stopped by the Nobis booth to catch up with my old friend JD. Being that I’m Canadian, I’m too familiar with Nobis outerwear, which is based out of Canada and focuses on providing high quality outwear, both fashionable and functional, inspired by a combination of military classics, 60′s Olympics/retro ski-wear, the Native Canadian and the Nomadic world traveler.
Why dish out $2000 for Balenciaga or $5000 for a Chanel flap when you can get one of these fun, thrifty little totes by Thursday Friday? Thursday Friday is an LA based brand created by Roni Brunn and Olena Sholomytska. The Balenciaga version pictured above retail for $65 but are also available in a myriad of iconic bags including Chanel, Miu Miu and more.
Visited my girl Jess at the Native booth. Native Shoes is yet another Canadian based brand that is inspired by classic, casual silhouettes, but made with the lightest and most comfortable material available.

Bumped into my boy Scott Hase from Under Two Flags (previously of LRG). Stay tuned for more Project LV updates soon.
To say my 2012 New Year’s Eve was memorable, is an understatement. I attended The ‘Ciroc The New Year’ Private Party hosted by Diddy at his Miami Mansion on Star Island. I’ve been to many of Diddy’s parties in the past but this one was extra special; It was intimate, yet star-studded, well attended by his close friends, family and fellow entertainers. It was held amidst the finest of backdrops inside (and outside) his Miami estate which included a romantically lit Olympic size pool, lit up custom dance floor and tasteful, strategically placed Ciroc decor. We arrived to Diddy’s home around 11:45pm and was greeted by heavy duty security at his front gate, then escorted inside, past his entourage of crazy cars. We were immediately welcomed by beautiful model-esque women, dressed in gold sequin dresses handing out whistles and what seemed to be an unlimited supply Ciroc and champagne. Diddy was on the mic calling everyone to the dance floor before the countdown. His mama, his kids (including his adorable twins) & baby mama were running around and getting busy on the dance floor. Everyone crowded around for the countdown, we hugged and kissed, then Diddy gathered everyone to the back of his house to watch fireworks. Throughout the night, I spotted a continuous stream of familiar celebrity faces including Rihanna, Rick Ross, Nelly, Jermaine Dupris, Neyo, Gayle King, Star Jones, Vivica Fox, Andre Harrell, Matt Kemp (ooooh man, he’s fine), Sanaa Lathan, DJ Khalid, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Adrienne Bailon and both of Diana Ross’ children, Tracee Ellis Ross & Evan Ross. I chatted and snapped photos with the ever so talented Robin Thicke, who was there with his wife Paula Patton. Shout out to my girls from NYC, Kelly & Yvonne, who soldiered the long, entertaining 5+ hour evening with me and for taking care of me in my 6 inch Giuseppe Swarovski Platform Shoes. When we finally left at around 5am, the complimentary slippers & car service was a life saver. Thanks Diddy for that added touch. I must say, it was a pretty spectacular way to start off 2012 and if this was any indication of what the rest of my year is going to be like, well then, I have a lot to look forward to. Stay tuned for my Miami photo diary….my trip didn’t end there. x0
