It was the Winter of 2004. I was an intern at New York Magazine, and a fan of Sex & The City. While we all loved all of Carrie Bradshaw’s outfits, it was this one little Gucci Fanny Pack that made my heart pause. I needed it. I wanted it. I had to have it.

Go Where You Are Celebrated, Not Just Tolerated: New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 Day 1 in a Kimberly Goldson Suit and Gucci Crystal Sandals

Happy Saturday, from Las Vegas! Last week, I popped into Fashion Week for just one day to attend the Discount Universe show. Inspired by Harlem’s Fashion Row, I wore one of the featured designers, Kimberly Goldson, along with Gucci Accessories: I was recently quoted in New York Magazine’s the Cut, thrusting a spotlight on the lack of black bloggers on the front row during Fashion Week: I’ve been going to Fashion Weeks internationally since 2007, and it always seems to…
