New York City Hip Hop Styled Shoot

I am so excited to share my daughter’s 10th birthday celebration and her

Hip Hop styled fashion shoot in the middle of Times Square New York City!

Believe it or not, I’m the mother of a 10 year old.  I don’t know how it happened, but it happened.   In keeping true to my way of parenting, we went all out and invited a friend to NYC for the weekend.

I just knew that Izzy’s yearly birthday shoot would have to really special for the big 10.  I found this sequin jacket at Bloomingdales just like the one Taylor Swift wore for her 1989 tour.  It’s now sold out EVERYWHERE I look.  I’m so glad I didn’t procrastinate on this one.  That boombox?  Borrowed from the neighbor, circa 1981.

I hope she never forgets the experience!  I know I won’t.




We decided to drive up since its only a few hours away, and we couldn’t get there fast enough.  We stayed at the Hyatt Centric Times Square and that will be my go to place when I can’t afford the Plaza from now on;)  Such an awesome hotel, huge rooms (for NYC), and steps away from all the action in Times Square.  Here are some fun picks of the rest of our time there.
