It’s April, and yesterday it was 43 degrees and today it’s 65 degrees… I wore Uggs today (don’t look at me funny) and I really could have wore my Tory Burch ballet flats because it’s warm today. I want to put all my winter stuff in storage but I can’t because Mother Nature (or global warming) can’t make up its mind what the temperature should be! I’m frankly a little annoyed…

So, I’m looking out of my 10th floor showroom in NYC, supposed to be working, but I am thinking of sun, sand, and beach (as usual)

Carnival is on my mind, particularly Cropover which is Barbados’ Annual Carnival.

So here’s a little bit of music from one of my favs, Square One…it’s an oldie but goodie.

So I’m finally back from Vegas and I must say I had a great time! It is really nice to get out on the road and meet customers and have them be so excited to wear Monif C. clothing. I even had a few customers that literally drove 5 hours from LA just to come to the trunk show! That is definitely an honor. Here are some pics from the event and the weekend’s festivities. I am missing some camera shy girls, but they know who they are and thanks so much for coming out!

For those asking if we’ll be coming to your city, we are rolling out the trunk show calendar and our next stop is Washington, DC on April 24th and 25th May 1st and 2nd (date change)! Location to come, but if you want to RSVP, email monif (at) with DC Shopping Party in the subject.

My best friend Aisha went with me, so this pic was taken just hours after we landed…I know rough…

“I’m leaving on a jet plane, don’t know when I’ll be back again…”

Taking off today for Las Vegas and our Trunk Show! Will be nice to spend time with my old NSBE friends who are also in

Vegas for their National Convention. NSBE stands for National Society of Black Engineers by the way…one day I’ll tell you all the story of how I went from Engineer to Fashion Designer.


But the real reason I am going is for our Las Vegas Private Shopping Party! If you are in the Vegas area and want to come tomorrow Saturday March 28th, email monif (at) and I will tell you where it is taking place.

In the meantime, shipments are going out today so it’s a busy, busy day!

I’ll have lots of pics when I get back…I’ll also be on twitter tweeting while in Vegas, so feel free to follow me on twitter: Monif C.’s Twitter

See you soon!
