The Bomb Life LA: I Wore Kim Shui to Cardi B’s Dancehall Birthday Party + Dress Code 411

So a few days ago, Cardi B invited me to her birthday party in LA. Though I live in New York, I figured: why not? I had an event to attend in New York on Tuesday, but with proper planning and bit of a sacrifice on sleep, I could make it happen. So I went.* The invitation said, “Dancehall/Caribbean-inspired attire welcomed!” It did not say required. It did not say we will turn you away if you don’t like like…

The Best Rooftop in New York City: The Graduate Hotel on Roosevelt Island Wearing Fashion Bomb Daily Shop

A few days ago, a few of my colleagues invited me to the Graduate Hotel, an unexpected enclave located on New York’s Roosevelt Island (22 N Loop Rd, New York, NY 10044). After breezing through their artsy lobby, decorated with copious books and a giant sized b-boy holding up a light bulb chandelier, you are transported up to their rooftop aka the Panorama Room, which has arguably one of the best views in New York City.

Day 1, I supported Haitian designer Azede Jean Pierre with her new collaboration with Gucci. Outside Gucci’s Wooster street store,…

The Bomb Life Travel: Scribner’s Lodge in the Catskills New York

This past weekend, I drove 3 hours outside of New York city to the snow dusted Catskills to Discover Scribner’s Lodge, a woodsy retreat perfect for city slickers looking for a taste of the mountain life. As soon as we entered the King Loft, we were greeted by a wood burning fireplace, s’mores, and a bi-level room, perfect for rest and relaxation. What to do at Scribner’s? Ice skate on the Glice Rink (this is fake ice)… Play Board or…

The End of My Love Affair with the Leather Spa: Jim’s Shoe Repair is the Best in New York City

The Leather Spa is a New York City institution. Scores of well heeled fashionistas go there to resole their Christian Louboutin stilettos, rescue stained bags, and resuscitate their shoes. I was one of those Leather Spa Lovers until today. I was blessed by the good Lord with a pair of calves that cut a cute form in summer dresses! But when it comes to winter boots, they don’t fit in–literally. I have been using The Leather Spa for years to…
