This past weekend in NYC was pretty much a wash out but that didn’t stop me from getting out. If you followed me on snap chat, you’d seen that I attended a baby shower in the Bronx on Saturday. On Sunday morning I had a shoot in the West Village, followed by brunch at Buvette and then a quick stop home for some rest before meeting up with a friend at my favorite neighborhood cafe Il Cafe Latte. So on my way to the shoot I was wearing my Tibi slides and some how a piece of glass popped up into the sandal and I stepped on it. It left a huge gash in my heel and I had to hobble to star bucks to use their restroom. I bleed all over the floor and my Tibi’s. I spent a good amount of time in that bathroom willing my clotting bodies to hurry so I could make it to my shoot in the West Village in time.

That saying is true, when it rains it pours literally and figuratively. But I did manage to drink 1 cup of coffee, 2 chai tea latte with whip cream and 3 croissants today, so I definitely can’t complain. Wow. I really just realized how much of the same things I ate/drank today. Pretty hilarious. Hopefully the weather will improve and I can ditch this leather jacket for good for the summer. I’m super excited because I won tickets to The Other Festival next weekend. It’s my first festival of the year and I’m psyched to be in the presence of amazing women like Arora James who I featured in Fashion Steele NYC Magazine, Beverly Bond of Black Girls Rock, Stephanie Mark of The Coveteur, and Naomi Campbell. Now I just need to find something amazing to wear. Make sure to follow me on snapchat: monroesteele, on Saturday for all The Other Festival happenings. You can also buy tickets to the festival being held in NYC on June 11th HERE.
Have a great week!
