Hello friends! I’m back after a small hiatus, and addiction to the new series on Netflix- The Crown. Now that the holidays are dawning closer each day, it’s time to get shopping! New York City is renowned for it’s street style, flea markets..and yes, sample sale madness. During New York Fashion Week this year one of my best friends Christine and I went to the Nautica Style magazine event and met fashion blogger, supermom, and all around wonderful Michelle at the Nautica Style magazine event. I’ve always been the type of girl to get lucky walking down the street and happen upon a sample sale, but after meeting Le Hoarder, I’ve discovered this is an art. Michelle and I hit a few sample sales together this past week and my favorite thus far was Balenciaga. After a year of living in the city (and making smart friends) I’ve compiled a concise list for newbie sample sailors! View Full Post
Running around during Fashion Week is insane. If you are fortunate enough to be able to show up, be photographed and leave, then I understand how you can wear six inch heels, and a mini skirt. And you go girl!!!
I, however, find that I need to wear pants when I’m sprinting across several intersections. It’s just the easiest way to get around without flashing anyone. (Yes this is something we should all be concerned with).
Fashion Week is also about taking risks with your style, and bringing out those beautiful pieces that don’t normally go out. I paired a simple black dress and Burberry pants with this gorgeous 50′s skirt I received as a gift from my wonderful friend Kimsioux.
The second outfit I wore to New York Fashion Week was filled with lots of color. It’s a well known fact that most women in NYC wear black. And while I love noir, I love color even more. It can be easy to just want to fit in and shy away from what we love but I decided to be a little daring and wear bubble gum pink.
Love this little pin I found at a costume jewelry store in the meatpacking district.
Matched my Dior sneakers with this adorable little bow (actually a sash from a cocktail dress) Double duty!
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.
