MAGIC 2009

Hey everyone, it's been a while since I last posted but I've been super busy lately and haven't found the time to blog until now. My last blog was about magic and as promised I wanted to relay all the fun and games that went on during the convention.

My Virgin America cherry has been popped and I have to say, I can't imagine another flight on any other airlines. You can watch TV, play video games, listen to music, chat, and watch your plane as it goes from city to city on the screen in front of you.

Here's our view from the top.

I went to Magic with one of my besties, Allison, and we were both representing Koan Clothing ( The event wasn't as crazy as I had expected but from what the taxi drivers told us the economy had a lot to do with it.

Alli and I.

Here are some photos from the actual event:

We bumped into Common, but couldn't get a pic with him so this is the best I could do. ;)

There were a lot of great art pieces there, this is one of them.

I was really bummed out that there weren't any fashion shows this year (I blame the economy) but instead, after Magic Allison and I found ourselves in the company of models. So it worked out just fine!

Me with one of the models from the Ed Hardy Fashion show and coincidentally one of the prior contestants of America's Next Top Model. Anyone recognize her?

After the convention was really when the magic happened. All in all the trip was really fun, made some great contacts, saw some new clothes, and collected a lot of free stuff. I can't wait for the next trip! ;)

MAGIC 2009 Here I come!

I just confirmed today that I will definitely be making my way to one of the BIGGEST fashion convention in the nation! There's going to be thousands of designers that range from contemporary, streetwear, casual, active, footwear and accessory collections from the world's best. And Magic will showcase the most extensive assortment of menswear in the marketplace today. I looked over the list of designers that will be attending and I can't wait to shop and be inspired.

Here's a video of one of the fashion shows at Magic last year:

Here's another video from dailyfiasco.

I am so excited to go, I can't wait to see new designs and get free things hehe. I'll be going with my friend Allison of Koan Clothing and CircleDotCreative and we can't wait to meet new people in the fashion industry. Anyone else going? If so, hit me up so we can meet up there! I'll see you at MAGIC! ;)

Super Bowl Recap

Go Steelers! Great win! However, the real reason I watched the super bowl is for the commercials. This year was okay, nothing really caught my attention. I was really disapointed that I didn't see any of Miller's one-second-ads. I saw them online, but did not see them during the game. My top spot was the LMAO Syndrome for ABC and the runner up was the Free Dorito's spot. Both ads were really witty and clever.

Here's Miller's one second spot that didn't air:

And just in case you missed the game, or was too drunk to remember the commercials here's a link to watch them all.
