Most of you have kept up with my recent trip to New York Fashion Week through my "Dear Diary" column in Lei Chic. It was a 3 part series that tracked my travel adventures as a Fashion Week virgin and NY tourist. For everyone who hasn't read it, you can find it here PART I, PART II, & PART III. Since most of my thoughts are already published, my next few blog posts will be mostly pictures with small side-bars.
I do want to say that NY has thoroughly changed my life. I feel more inspired than ever to be brave & pursue those dreams I have labeled as "too big". I guess we will just have to see what happens next...
I literally had to go from plane to Lincoln Center. I'm glad that you all responded so well to my OOTD since it's not easy to fly 9 hours, go straight to work, AND look NYFW worthy. You would not believe the crowd that lingers outside just to style stalk! "You best be dressed your best," is all I could think haha.
Button Down + Cardigan - Nordstrom. "Joni" high-waisted skinny - Top shop. "Everly" boot by Jeffery Campbell. Necklace - Florencia Arias. Sunnies - Roberta Oaks.
My very first show at NYFW is BCBG Max Azria. It was PACKED & I'm slightly overwhelmed by the whole thing but nevertheless excited to be a part of it. These are a few of my favorite looks from his Spring 2014 collection.
Tadashi Shoji is already a favorite designer of mine so getting invited to his show was like getting stuck by lightening - electrifying, once-in-a-lifetime, & life altering! His designs really speak to me on so many levels! I love his retro inspired shapes, unwavering femininity, & playful mix of textiles. He is one of my TOP shows this trip.
My last show of the day was by Desigual. To compliment the bright colors & bold prints, the runway show was flirty & playful. I loved how fun it was in contrast to how serious fashion week can be. It was the perfect way to end the day.
