I am very excited to be back in New York for Fashion Week! This is officially my third season and first time in February. Let me tell you… it is freezing. But my adrenaline is running high so I will survive. Kier and I arrived Wednesday night after we got stuck in Florida on an 8 hour layover due to the icy conditions at the NYC airports. As soon as we arrived we checked into what may be the best hotel in NYC for Fashion Week- the Empire- right across the street from the Lincoln center. I already am calling it my second home. I’ll post pictures of our room set up soon:)
Our first show to start the week, my personal favorite- BCBGMAXAZRIA. Remember my post from September’s show here? I had to pinch myself to remember that it was real life. Tribal prints and big fur capes graced the runway.
This dress is my favorite piece from the runway collection. I love the print, open neckline, and the way the fabric flowed down the runway.
Wednesday night we attended the Sarah Boyd x Capwell & Co. party. Kier and I picked up matching bracelets to benefit the Farley Project. Congrats to Sarah and Capwell on the beautiful jewelry line! Glad to be supporting such a a great cause.
Love these photos inside the tent at Lincoln Center.
Our second stop was the Raoul presentation. As a blogger, I personally prefer presentations because you can really get an up close and personal look at the clothes. Although runway shows have a great anticipation aspect. The lights dimming… music turning on… My favorite piece from Raoul was the black straight coat with houndstooth print along the bottom. This gives me the idea for a great DIY project with stencils and a coat.
For my first look of Fashion Week I wanted to bring as much spring into my look as possible. I recently wore this BCBGMAXAZRIA dress (purchased via Ebay) for a much warmer Los Angeles brunch (post here) and made the look more winter appropriate with a bright pink trench coat, gloves and my favorite Just Fab booties.
Thank you to Social Bliss for featuring my street style look!
