NYC Simply Stylist

Park Central Hotel NYCSunday’s Simply Stylist event was fantiastic.  In addition to meeting and networking with some of my favorite fashion and beauty gurus, I was inspired and motivated to refine my goals within this industry and push myself beyond my comfort zone.  We started early Sunday morning at the Park Central Hotel on 7th Avenue with a brunch hosted by HauteLook
