SPECIAL DELIVERY: Brooklyn We Go Hard Paris (BWGH) – Thanks David Obadia!

I’ve been hearing great things about a brand named Brooklyn We Go Hard out of Paris. Not sure where the Brooklyn namesake comes from, either way – everything they create is tre magnifique! Luckily, the brands founder reached out to my friend Alex Sossah to gift me with pieces. I was stoked! It’s no wonder I love everything they make, it’s a menswear brand mainly and we all know how much I love to dress like a dude. Anyways, peep this adorable collaboration they made with Ronnie Fieg of Kith…

SPECIAL DELIVERY: Mary Rich Leather Paneled Tank + Wilfred Free Leather Jogger Shorts (Vancouver Styles in Old Lyme)

During my little weekend get-away to Old Lyme Connecticut, I did a mini shoot with all the SPECIAL DELIVERY goodies that I have received! No makeup (obviously), hair (just vacation hair), lights, or lotion for that matter (I stay ashy). Just some quick fun photos taken with my not so great camera. This post features a beautifully crafted super light leather paneled tank top by Mary Rich paired with cozy leather jogger shorts by Wilfred Free (connected to Aritzia, my new friends) – both are Vancouver brands! Photos taken by Elle Clay.

SPECIAL DELIVERY: Warby Parker Prescription Glasses

 

specdel_warbyparker_861306

You may remember a few years ago when my friend Brian Magida at Warby Parker gifted me some prescription glasses and sunglasses. I was blown away by the young company then. Not only is their business a charitable one (for every pair of glasses purchased a pair of glasses is donated to someone in need), but their business is also a booming one. My friend Lori Krauss was now working at the company and reached outfit me in some new specs. The timing couldn’t have been better as I was window shopping for new glasses the very same day she emailed me!

I walked into their showroom blown away by how much they have grown, still killing the game! We may be collaborating on something special soon. Stay tuned. In the mean-time, check out these specs!

Peep my Instagram Post. I share 2 little known facts:

1. I’m Nearsighted (meaning I can see things up close, but not far away).

2. I lied on a vision test in 5th grade  because I wanted glasses badly. I lied so extensively I ended up with bifocals and since I forgot to factor in that my poor kid status couldn’t afford me cute frames – I was given the ugliest pair known to man. Hence, I never wore them. But, a few years later I really did need glasses.

SPECIAL DELIVERY: Blackberry Q10 – My Lifelong Love Of Pressing Buttons Is Satisfied!

nets_game_1

Me in 2007 holding my favorite toy…a Blackberry.

I have been like coo coo for Cocoa Puffs over gadgets for as long as I can remember! Cameras, Cell Phones, Scanners…you name it. If it’s got great design and solid function, best believe I have internet stalked its photos and its reviews.

Trying to stay organized in 2013 is an everyday struggle for me and I can imagine for anyone else out there. You have to juggle social media, emails, texts, phone calls, iCal, notes, work, and then life. It’s no easy task, so I find that  having all the necessary weaponry is a must.

 Peep the 2 Blackberry’s when I worked at Def Jam

I’ve had a second phone like for some time now linked to a Blackberry, so that when I do more on the go freelance work – I can send emails like all other Industry Adults (iPhone for fun and Blackberry for work is pretty much the industry standard these days).

When the Blackberry Q10 released, my friends at The Participation Agency gifted it to me. I couldn’t wait to caress my fingertips along it’s curvaceous buttons! I’m like a toddler, I mean – who doesn’t love to press a button?! The latest Blackberry Q10 quenches all your fun and business needs…although, I’m not sure I can ever part ways with my iPhone, she’s just been too good to me!
