What I’ve learned living in New York City style. Growing up in North Carolina I always felt the need to try to fit in, and dress in a certain way so I wouldn’t stand out at all. In New York, I definitely feel comfortable dressing any way because everyone is so open minded. It’s one of my favourite things about the city. You can do anything, and become anyone. It’s a beautiful place to live and it’s progressive. I will say the same for the south, but NYC is definitely some ways ahead.

2.) The best stores are tucked away and not as easy to find. Chelsea, and Tribeca are both neighborhoods that have many tucked aways stores that a lot of people don’t know about. I also suggest going into a store that looks really interesting to you. Almost always, your gut feeling is right and you’ll find the most beautiful pieces randomly.

3.) Trends dominate more so here than other places. However, unique outfits are also prominent. It’s refreshing to live here and see so many distinct people and styles.

4.) New Yorkers are happy to help you. If you ask if a store has been picked over, or if a sample sale is worth the wait, you’ll be surprised how honest (and often times kind) most people are. There’s there stereotype that New Yorkers are rude, and excessively aggressive people that hate everyone. While I agree that New Yorkers are aggressive, I definitely don’t think they are rude, and insinuating that will cause one to be very rude to you. Just be polite and you’ll be surprised how far that will get you.

New York Fashion Week is one of the most beautiful times of the year. All the women, fashion industry or not- dress to impress. It’s not uncommon to see the women going to work or going to shows covered head to toe in Chanel, Givenchy, or another fashion designer brand.

I found that the most important thing to keep in mind during NYFW is to dress comfortably. Running around through the city can make a girl tired, and disheveled! I opted out of short skirts this time around and instead went for layers with pants, and long skirts that were easy to walk in.
