The day started with front row seats at the beautiful Darkoh menswear show. Probably one of my favorites this season, the designer started with a bang, and three aqua suits. Had a girl feeling like she found the Ken to her Barbie. But really, each suit was killer and I was just sitting there like, “why do I not run around in mini suits?”

Next we headed to the Lincoln Center for more menswear. We shot our looks then headed to a restaurant across the street for afternoon cocktails and appetizers. Then it was a ride down to the Standard Hotel where we saw the Maison Kitsune presentation. The sunset was beautiful as it filled the room with light. The whole collection had this really effortless french vibe, which made me miss Paris.

After that we headed to Tao for the Nylon party. There I met the owner of Nylon, Mark and the Jonas Brothers! So many other great blogger friends of mine were there too and I’m lucky I was literally able to get a plus five for all my friends (I don’t really think that was allowed.) We drank and dance and took pictures in the amazing Rebel Fashion photobooth.

And believe it or not, the night did not end there. We ended up back at the Standard Hotel for the Maison Kitsune after party at Le Bain. The roof was gorgeous at night and the view of the city from there is incomparable to any other.

Needless to say, Shooka and I spent most of the following day in bed. Skipping two shows, ordering food, and working from out computers in my bed. It actually felt good to have some time to relax.

Anyways I’m off to get ready for my show at the Lincoln Center at noon! Thanks to everyone who has been following me this week, it’s been a whirlwind!

NYFW DAY TWO

I don’t know why exhaustion has hit me already, but it came in with full force yesterday. 14-hours of running around from show, to event, back to show, to showroom is serious. Perhaps it’s because the 4 days prior to this, I isolated myself and just read, relaxed, meditated and did yoga, that this scheduled is a shock to my system. No complaints, it’s just a very different way of spending a day.

Anyways, the day started with the Sally La Pointe show. Certainly my favorite collection I’ve seen so far, this spring is all about big belts, basics, black and white for her. I love the simplicity of the flats with each look. The jackets and the way everything fit was just phenomenal. The final outfit was killer, featuring a huge feather design with a moto jacket in all white. I can’t wait to pull some pieces and shoot them with my darling, Brittanny.

Next we headed to the Sequin-NYC showroom to pick up some jewelry for the week, just missing the Buffalo Jeans relaxation party (ugh, I really needed a fresh manicure!) Then we headed down to Chinatown after that for the Martin Keehn presentation. He’s one of the designers represented by OMEN PR here in New York, which means that all the edgy/chic bitches come out to play. Everyone in line looked so fierce, and it was good to see some friendly faces.

My best friend flew in yesterday as well, and in true exhausted fashion, we ended the night early with ordering sushi to my bed while watching the L word on Netflix.

I’m feeling recharged today, time to get ready for shows and a photo shoot!

NYFW Day One

800-1 800-2 fw1 fw222 fw333 IMG_0161 copy IMG_0206 copy IMG_0218 copy IMG_0238 copy IMG_0248 copyWhat’s the best part about living in New York and working in fashion? We’re already here when NYFW happens. No jet lag, no failed taxi rides, no getting lost on the subway– we’re New Yorkers and we’re ready.

Phil and I got up bright and early this morning and headed to the Lincoln Center to make the morning show that kicks everything off, BCBG. The collection is so different from the past three seasons. It really offers a much more soft and dreamy vibe for this season, something I was not particularly expecting.

Perhaps it’s only because fall is looming here on the East Coast, but I’m prepared to see edgy shapes, big glasses, cool prints, and strong looks. MOD is they key word here, I want to see mod everything. I can’t tell you guys how happy I am that this is back in style. I was texting with my dad yesterday (classic rock n roller) asking him for advice and inspiration on the mod trend. He of course immediately dropped names like The Beatles, The Who, and the The Rolling Stones. British invasion bands and Twiggy is what I’m looking to for outfit direction this season. He also told me to check out Bowie’s “Pinups” album which is a retooling of the mod 60s in style and song.

So today my look was obviously inspired by some mod trends. I pieced together this black and white look from all over the internet! My romper is from Nasty Gal, my fur is from the Los Angeles based brand Bsable and my glasses are by the Aussie brand, Quay. My clutch is from Culture Riot and my shoes are of course, Jeffrey Campbell.

I’m so excited to attend two more shows tonight and thankful to have Phillip by my side all week capturing all the adventure! Stay tuned for updates!
