Creative Corner

Best medicine for Creatives is to Create. Now…   I’ve been in a really “juicy” creative space (I like to call it ) lately.  Creative juices damn near oozing out of my pores it seems.   Sometimes my brain feels like it’s damn   near explosion due to so many ideas with so little time.  Some days like below I just  get up, grab a few textures that grabs the eye and just shoot. With no shoes…just simply vibin and creating. Freely.   Jeans: G-Star Raw Robe: TjMaxx(Feb) Glasses: Tjmaxx   Share This:

#NewYorkCoffeeTalk

Second #NewYorkCoffeeTalk Date:  2/23/16 . Location: Brooklyn Roasting Company Manhattan.   Coffee Talk was on one of the coldest days during NYFW.  All news stations and meteorologist warned to not leave your house if you didn’t have to, but Hello!…New Yorkers on a mission cant be stopped by cold weather!!! We doodled(Well Marcia did), laughed, made new friends, took it to church and had some “Aha” moments.  If you follow my snap(vanavain) then you too came to church with us.  No amount of pics or audio can truly capture the amazing and uplifting energy that fills these coffee shops each month. Grateful.   NewYorkCoffeeTalk is a meet up for local creatives to Meet.  Build.  Sip and network.  Follow my  instagram page for Future announcements or send me your email to get on the announcement list. hello@vanavain.com Photography: House Of Malcolm   Share This:

Blue Magic- NYFW

After fighting like hell  trying to get them ($50 custom fees) I didn’t have to tell you, but I appreciate you so there.  Anyways, Blue magic hit me the minute I put them on. All through the veins…like if you cut me it would be this exact  velvet blue.  The never ending slip on that literally covered most of my thighs gave me  instant super powers! NYFW  Day 3 comes around and I want to wear this dope Nubia Williams dress. The color combo and the military like details are just amazing.  My suitcase only had about 4 different types of footwear in there so the options were very slim, But that’s where the challenge and creativity comes in.  Like sink or swim V! Laid out the boots, tried it. Loved it. I was stomping around NY  like “Who needs saving?!”  “You called for me?!…I know, a …
