Back in April of this year, I attended the 4th Annual Fashion 500 event hosted by The Block Association, one of NYC premier event planning groups. The event took place on a Sunday afternoon and was hosted at the Rivington Hotel on the Lower East Side. Many guest sat and had brunch, while others threw back cocktails, and enjoyed the music being projected from the speakers. I did a little bit of both.
Well, upon my arrival I was stopped by a freelance photographer from Essence Magazine, she said she wanted to take a picture of me for their Street Style section. So, today on Throw Back Thursday (#tbt). I would like to share the picture.
