To all my forward thinkers with vintage souls, chicsters, whatever you would like to call yourselves when visiting my site: I have a new little segment for you to keep you up-to-date with the fun things happening in my life! Last week was one of those weeks that felt too surreal to be real, but it was RealReal (a pun you will understand later)! I attended three fashion events and got to cover a star-studded costume design exhibition—four fashion functions in one week! I have been itching to share it with you all in more detail…so here it goes!
Sunday: The Library Study Hall—A Conference on Fashion Sustainability
I spent my entire Sunday immersed in fashion consciousness at the historic Ace Hotel and couldn’t be happier about it. The Library Study Hall was an insightful conference all about style and sustainability. The gorgeously ornate Ace Hotel filled with medieval frescoes was also filled with ethical inspiration—featuring panels with supermodel Amber Valetta, fashion sustainability advocate and Oprah’s Supersoul 100 gal Maya Penn, fashion journalist Stacy London and amazing talks from the people of Stella McCartney and Eileen Fisher!
Tuesday: FIDM’s Art of Television and Costume Design
The Emmys are just around the corner and to prepare, I went inside FIDM’s latest exhibit featuring over 100 costumes across 24 shows, 9 of those shows’ costumes are EMMY NOMINATED. I’m talking Game of Thrones, Outlander, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, you name it! Being a fan of Game of Thrones and Outlander myself (And The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is on my watch list) I practically freaked out seeing Daenerys’ white fur coat from GOT season 7 and Claire Fraser’s ’60s outfits from Outlander season 3!

Tuesday Night: The RealReal Men’s Launch Event
If you are a vintage treasure hunter like myself, then you definitely know about The RealReal, one of the most illustrious luxury consignment sites ever. They recently opened up a location on Melrose Avenue and just launched the men’s section of their store last Tuesday! The event was co-hosted by GQ’s Editor at Large, Jim Moore and featured delicious hors d’oeuvres, nectar-like rosé and a fun DJ! My old roomie, Lauren and I had a grand old time exploring the 12,000 square foot shop with a sneaker dome, watch bar and even popped over to the women’s section to take a look for ourselves!
Thursday: The Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia Gerber Collection Launch Party at Revolve
My friend Tyrah Majors and I had the neat opportunity to attend the official launch of the Karl Lagerfeld (AKA one of my fashion heroes) x Kaia Gerber collection launch event at Revolve! It definitely was a treat to be a part of the event, from the awesome DJ, to all the aesthetic Revolve Instagram spots, to Charlotte Lawrence’s performance in which she sang some of her unreleased music! And of course, seeing Kaia Gerber was cool too.
I hope you enjoyed this little recap from last week! I would love to know in the comments below if this is something you’d like me to keep doing!
Keeping it Krischic,
