V-fingers! Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of social media talks and panels (mainly about fashion blogging, travel, and video). Let’s flash-back to NYC, where I spoke at Mediabistro’s Social Curation Summit.

I took part in the “Artists on the Verge” panel. I gave advice on how to use social media and blogging to build an entertainment career.

Thanks to everyone who attended; it was fun to chat with you at the wine reception.

That evening, I met CamdenLock Clothing designer Tomomi at South Street Seaport for the Dances of Vice burlesque cruise.

In a cruel twist of fate, we Pirates were unable to find the boarding area. We ran around, searching in vain.

Finally, we found the boat… sailing away. Missed it by minutes!

What to do? Pose for photos on the pier.

The 24-hour cafe is famous for its Buddha-Elvis kitsch decor.

The Rococo-zebra prints and chocolate cake suited me quite well.
