Philly Fashion Week Recap

PFW was something I was really excited to attend because it's right here in my city! I had lots of stylish events to go to and met some awesome designers that showcased their work throughout the week. It was such a surprise to me that not many people in places as close as NYC knew about Philly fashion week. Although Philly fashion week is on a smaller scale then NYFW it is still an amazing accomplishment for this city and it's designers. 

I was very excited to wear some of my favorite local designers during the week. Orgotton was one of my favorite pieces to wear and photograph. Not only is their new collection to die for because of the diversity of just one piece, but it is made from the most comfortable fabric of all time! It hugs you in all the right places and shows off just enough skin! 

PFW has a urbanity feel to it, and it reflects in it's fashion. So naturally my fashion choices did as well! I think the fashion here reflects my relationship with this city, it's close knit and loving. I encourage you all to check out these amazing Philadelphia designers!

Inside La Colombe's Home Office

 Thanks to Kate Kelly; social media & events coordinator for La Colombe, I had the chance to glance into their home office inside of their Fishtown Cafe, right here in Philadelphia. 

I love looking into other people's workspaces. La Colombe's flagship store was an abandoned warehouse that now is the home to their beautifully wooden headquarters. The office space is very industrial with touches of modern materials. It is so visually appealing, why wouldn't this space be inside one of their largest cafe's!

The building houses more then just their cafe & company office, but also a rum distillery, a full size kitchen including their own bakery, and even a tasting room. La Colombe has become such a popular place where all sorts of people come to dive into work, grab a perfectly made latte, splurge on some delicious bites, and even grab drinks after work. With ample seating and tasty menu options La Colombe is a local gem!

La Colombe is all of that and more for me! I love the environment and diversity their cafe brings to my local scene. Not only is their iced red eye coffee delicious, but their intricate cups and cutting board plates are too cute not to photograph! I find myself craving their spicy flatbread pizza with a drizzle of honey! I am constantly going to the hub that is La Colombe when needing to get out of my own office and still get some work done. The space is perfectly inspiring.
