So before I get into it, let me just say that this fashion week was a lot different than the other ones. To be very honest, I did not like the new location and set up at all. Everything was just so spread apart, the vibe was different, and getting cabs/ubers was a hassle. I spent way too much on taxis and ended up missing out on a couple of things. By the end of the first day, I was really ready to just say forget it and head back to Jersey. The pouring rain on Thursday did not help much either. I stuck it out though and I am actually really happy that I did because I got to see so many people that I rarely get to spend time with and they just made this NYFW extra special for me. Seriously, that was the best part for me. Going to fashion week was always a dream of mine and I am very thankful and appreciative to be able to continue to attend and see some of my favorite designers. It is a great experience and a lot of fun, but please believe that it is not always so glamorous and amazing as it may appear to be. There’s a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes. Just being 100% honest. With that said, I did have a great time with my loves and here’s a mini breakdown of the first half of the week!
On day 1 I wore these printed culottes that I scored on major sale at Nordstrom Rack along with this crop top that I also got for over 50% off at Bloomingdales. You know I love my sales! I feel like this outfit was a little bit of a risk for me because I have never worn culottes before. I am so short and I know that this length can be tricky, but I just went for it. When I find something that I love, I will wear it no matter what. I think the hat was a great finishing touch too. It was super windy so shooting in this was hard. I wore this to the Desigual show, one of my favorites because of the vibrant colors and prints. After that I went to a few events and spent time with a few friends. 🙂

Day 2 I wore the suspenders from yesterday’s post for the Betsey Johnson show. Absolutely loved it and it was my first time attending! Before the show I went to the Tresemme suite to get my hair done which was fun! After that I just went to a few other things like showrooms, coffee shops, an event with Vogue and then dinner with my girl Lillian.
Day 3 was one of my favorites! I ended up skipping just about everything I had to just enjoy time with my friends. 🙂 Menswear has been inspiring me so much more lately, so I wore this long vest and plaid wide brim hat that I am obsessed with, both from forever21 with Aero Jeans and Target pumps. I went to brunch and really just enjoyed the day. I had to head back to the upper west side to stay at my friend’s apartment so I ended up just staying in and ordering seamless. 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow with the 2nd post and next week I will get back on track with my Life Chats and can’t wait to share new things with you all! Hope you enjoyed part 1! <3
