I am a 24 year old fashion blogger from the Poconos who has finally made the move to the big city... sort of. Living on the Forgotten Borough has its perks though, there are some great local fashion spots, and a budding fashion community right here in our backyard. And a quick hop on the ferry brings us all of the inspiration we need. If you have a fashion tip or a lead on a fashion event, send me an e-mail at Alexandra.M.Nyman@gmail.com.

Young Lucid - She Love It

Young Lucid’s “She Love It” is all about having a good time and finding that one special lady.

Halloween is just around the corner, and you know what that means, all of the thrift stores on Staten Island are going to be filled to the brim with Staten Islanders searching high and low for their perfect costume. SILive’s Lauren Steussy and Fashion on Bay’s Alexandra Nyman, have teamed up to help you find Halloween costumes that won’t break the bank – almost all of these Halloween Costumes are under $30! We found everything at Everything Goes Clothing, located off of 140 Bay Street here on Staten Island.

Every girl dreams of attending fashion week from the time she is little. For me that dream came true this past New York Fashion Week. The entire experience can be defined as being both overwhelming and exciting.

The Jersry City Restaurant Crawl will be RestaurantCrawl.us’ first Semi-Annual Crawl. The Jersey City Crawl will be hosted on Sunday, October 4th from 1-6pm. From 5-6pm a mix and mingle will be held in order for participants in the event to vote for their favorite restaurant from the Crawl.

Ever wonder what it would be like to be in a music video? Well, now you no longer have to! Young Lucid, an upcoming rapper, is filming a music video at the Eve Ultra Lounge on Tuesday, September 29th.

With New York Fashion Week drawing ever nearer, Staten Island decided to get in on the action with a prefashion week show. As you know from our previous article on the Top 3 NYFW Shows You Can Actually Get Into, New York Fashion Week begins on Thursday, September 10th and runs until the 17th. What do we mean by “prefashion week”? Well, we mean that the Staten Island Fashion Week show will be held two days before the official NYFW launches.

Staten Island, get ready for New York Fashion Week, which kicks off in only two weeks! Why is this a big deal? Well, in addition to Fashion Week being the place to discover the latest trends, it can also serve as inspiration for all of our budding designers and models.

Let’s face it, these Islanders have a fierce sense of style. We have spent the past few days looking into politicians, actors, singers, socialites, and TV Personalities alike to compile this list so that you can take a look into their fashion sense. In no particular order, let us begin.

With New York Fashion Week upon us, we thought that we would look into some of the rumored trends for Fall 2016 – with a twist, everything listed below are from local boutiques on Staten Island located in the North Shore. The trends that we predict will be big this Fashion Week are the following: Fringe, Ponchos (but more broadly 70s style), Boho, Chunky Heeled Boots, and Fur Collars.
