Hi Loves! I am so excited to get my New York Fashion Week recap on the blog to share with all of you! As many of you may know by now, I work a full-time job outside of blogging, so it was truly such a great experience being able to do what I was able to do in my time outside of work! It can be a challenge juggling both at times, but when you have two completely different passions – time management is your best friend! Fortunately, a majority of what I did for New York Fashion Week was over the weekend, in addition to some events and dinners in the evening during the week. For two amazing shows, I had a great visual of the floor and was able to get a couple videos of all the looks to share with you below! 🙂 I even added some notes on fashion trends and things to keep in mind for Fall 2017, so be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom 🙂
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: New York Fashion Week can be an amazing experience. It really is a great opportunity where you get to hang out and meet fellow bloggers, friends, role models, brands – these are all things that are honestly my favorite parts about New York Fashion Week. I LOVE being able to meet and chat with people who share the same passions as I do, and it’s fun to finally meet people who you admire online IN real life. The Good is you will meet a lot of amazing, inspirational people that you can share a joke and a picture or two with. The Bad? Well, sadly – New York Fashion Week is also a time of judging. Who’s wearing what, who’s with who, who is seen where. I’m going to dig into this whole idea at another time, but my only point is – it doesn’t hurt or cost anything to be friendly, to BE inclusive and to smile. This goes above and beyond New York Fashion Week too! And the Ugly? WELL, haha. I just want to point out that my life isn’t as glamorous as it may look. I sprint to catch taxi’s and trains (commuter shoes for the win!). I shop during my lunch break for things to wear to events day-of (hehe.. can you say last minute?) Thank GOODNESS for Zara! Seriously. This red suit? I found this bad boy on Friday to wear Saturday (#winner). This is another thing I’m working on sharing more of – the behind the scenes I shall say 😉 If you follow me on Insta-story, you get a better glimpse of what my life is actually like, and hopefully will get a good laugh or two from it!
As I mentioned above, Saturday was my day to go ALL out. It started in the morning before the Taoray Wang show. I met with my girlfriends and fellow bloggers, Lauren Mazzei and Samantha Crompton. We were able to get a couple shots in before the first show, which was so fun! This was the first time of all my New York Fashion Weeks that I wore something out of my comfort zone, and I’m SOOOOO glad I did! This outfit was so much fun to wear! I absolutely adored this red suit and have never had so much fun in a look. It definitely brought back the whole, “Fashion is about having fun and self-expression”, and to be perfectly honest it really helped me break out of my Winter rut! I shared a ton of shots below – I’m sorry if it’s a lot of scrolling!! But there were just so many details and fun shots I wanted to share!
The Taoray Wang Show was one of my favorites! The collection was sexy, classic, and simple; menswear inspired silhouettes with a feminine touch. This was the very first show I’ve seen where I loved everything. Every look left a lasting impression. Notes for Fall 2017: Blazers; Leather over-the-knee boots; Lace details and undergarments; Subtle Pops of Color; High-waisted pants.
Francesca Liberatore was breath of fresh air – pastels, lace and maxi dresses. Dear Spring, I’m ready for you! The mixed-textures is definitely one thing to note! I love the layered looks, the transparent skirts, the ultra-feminine silhouettes. Another favorite thing from this show was the low ponies with a bow. Such a cute touch!
