It's been a crazy week and tonight, we not only celebrated my birthday but also the closing party for Shoe Week known as Sneaker Sessions at XVI Lounge NYC! We had so much fun as we had our partners, Hot 97, The Source, Zico and more. I was so pleased to hang out with our DJ's that performed - DJ Eloy (my sister's fiance), DJ PM and DJ Bobby Trends! I love that one of my faves, Franco Lacosta came by and am OBSESSED with his coat! Such a great night and you can check out more images by visiting our album on Facebook!
Many people know that I am a huge fan of Aiisha Couture, I selected one dress that was a favorite of mine and made me think of everything that I love about Spring! This upcoming season incorporated a lot of blush and pink tones - I also love that this dress has sparkle as well as nude elements that allow your skin to show though! We paired this look with a pair of heels from Q by Pasquale! Each show had a fab DJ and this show which was a combined show had DJ Eloy who mixed fab music together as the girls walked the runway and then took additional pictures on our terrace! In future seasons, we would love to do an entire show surrounded around the looks of this fabulous luxury designer but am so pleased that we could provide a taste of it to our attendees!
We had a phenomenal day and evening at The Glass Houses as well as with a number of our sponsors such as Kiwaii Spring Water which is perfectly served at room temperature and is quite refreshing!
We just came off the first week of February and I don't know about you but this weekend is going to be busy with dinners, parties and of course the Super Bowl. With so many things going on, good thing that DJ Eloy has the perfect mashup music video to get us ready for the next few days ahead with a little Stereo Love.
So while I have been in and out, DJ Eloy has been DJing on a cruise for about a month and will then switch off to doing it some more during Japan Music Week next month in Tokyo! Now I think DJs definitely have a cool vibe and seeing that he is a fan of wearing the whole denim, sneakers and zippies - I thought of a look that I would love to see him rock on his next gig! I definitely think that he would approve. I'm a huge fan of Adidas and he loves Star Wars so this Wookiees jacket is super comfortable and yet very him, thrown over a simple grey tee - he's ready to go! Converse has a fun line of Jimi Hendrix shoes and I love the pair above - I don't think that I have ever seen him in Converse but I do believe that it's something that he could rock (even if it's only to go to 2nd Ave Deli - his fave spot) and of course, pair it all with fab jeans! Follow DJ Eloy on his site or on his Facebook page.
This Sat is a huge night DJ Eloy will be in Long Island doing what he does best - mixing video and music! Come to the Shore Club, info is on the invite. Make sure you leave your names here so that you can be on the guestlist. Loving that it's open bar until midnight so if you're in Island Park (this is one stop away from Long Beach) come out to see him perform. He's going to be super busy as his tour starts up and I may not see him again until Nov in Japan when a large group of us will be out there. If you've yet to go to his shows, you need to see how he gets the crowd moving and how passionate he is! The Shore Club is a fun venue and with amazing weather, why not take some time out? Hit the beach and then we'll club it up - dancing is the best exercise and the healthy glow you get is fab for the complexion tooD! Check out more about DJ Eloy here!
You never know where DJ Eloy is spinning next (of course you could check out his website - DJEloy.com) as he could be at Prana, the beach house, cruise ships, Seattle or Japan. But one thing we do know is that he knows how to spin as he integrates videos - we all have our faves and you can check them out! But if you get to see him spin in person, you know that not only does he keep everyone moving but there are always fans that pop up to get a closer look on his skills. Check out DJ Eloy spinning with Axe Twist on hand to keep him looking fab and of course this fan steps in to get closer to the hair action. With dates coming up, we'll keep you posted on DJ Eloy's own video showing how hair action keeps him moving and grooving!
I don't know where you guys will be to ring in the New Year but tonight is it! Today we slam the door on 2009 and look forward to 2010! DJ Eloy just came back from Japan and as you guys know he mixes music and video together. He's taken one of my favorite songs (Black Eye Peas - I Got a Feeling) and mixed it together with the countdown! This is a must follow him on Twitter @DJ Eloy and his girlfriend (my sister Dorian) @bigapplestyle!
DJ Eloy has a residency in NYC and in Long Beach! Currently he is playing at a few clubs in Seattle and there is a London tour being finalized as well! Not only is he a great DJ but he is known for his innovative style! One of my favorite things that he does is what I call a Video Mashup (not sure if this is the technical name for it). This allows him to mix two different songs together not only with the melodies but the video footage as well. There are various videos on the site but since I'm relaxing after a night out with the girls, I have picked this video with Kelly Clarkson!
