This is the sort of outfit that I should really wear while dancing to this song.
But, I wasn’t about to grab 95-S to hit a Baltimore club. I was actually just planning on crossing three avenues from my Harlem abode to meet Dereck Sabater, another Harlem resident and the man behind The Fresh Prince of NYC 2010.
So what is this FPofNYC’10 all about?
I’ll tell you.
It’s a 25th birthday party celebrating all-things-90s with a cause. Tix cost $20 – you get a 300 person+ fashion of the ’90s plus dance party, karaoke jam, food/beverage, door prizes, performance, fashion show, video games … the 90s gamut can go on and on.
Fresh Prince. Fresh Party.
I’m co-producing the fashion show with my girl Ciara of Clothes Minded. Dereck and I met up for some tea [me!] and hot chocolate [him!] to talk all things Fresh Prince & fashion.
More updates on the fashion show coming soon. Ciara and I are trying to lock down a modeling troupe from Temple U [my alma mater] to participate. So fresh, so real.
1995, here I come.
THE LOOK: Nu-Rave, Uptown
THE TOP: Gifted consignment, thanks Darla!
THE SHORTS: Sammy Davis Vintage, circa 90s
THE BELT: Actually… a scarf. SDV vintage.
THE EARRINGS: Vintage, Mama D
THE NECKLACE: Thrifted, Salvation Army, gift from brother Christmas ‘08
THE LEGGINGS: z-z-z-ZEBRA! No idea why, when, where and for what reason I purchased these. But thank God I did.
THE SHOES: Jessica Simpson, Marshals
Scarf-turned-bow-belt. A girly touch to a Nu-Rave inspired outfit. Voila.
I should audition for Jersey Shore with this hair.
ADDED: More zebra, Topshop, London
ADDED: Piece acquired from SDV collection. Vintage.
I’m really trying to be serious here.
I’m clearly SO EXCITED by this new addition to my collection, stolen from the SDV collection! It helps to have an entire additional [storage] closet of about 6 feet by 8 feet of clothing … aka 4 entire racks …
Is it just me, or is this a vintage version of a Snuggie?
I had the tea, while Dereck had the hot chocolate. ;-)
There’s the man himself, Dereck Sabater. With some slammin’ Nike SBs. Smile much? I mean, how could you not? They ain’t got a scuff on ‘em. But after hitting the dance floor on March 7 at the Fresh Prince of NYC affair, that all might change.
