NYFW highlights

September 8th, 2012 · 4 Comments


It’s probably too early for me to pick any highlights of New York Fashion Week, but this has already been such an incredible few days!  I’ve been running around like crazy from show to show, and it’s been such a blast already!

And this afternoon, I’ll be back in Houston for the awesome 7 After 7 party with 7 for All Mankind!  Be sure to come by their Galleria store from 4 to 7 pm today to say hello!

NYFW: outfit, day four

February 27th, 2012 · 4 Comments

Monday of Fashion Week was a total blur — between waking up at the crack of dawn to pack my suitcase before TWO nine a.m. shows, squeezing in another two presentations, having a quick lunch with Keiko, heading back for one more show, and then finally making it out of the hotel and on to the airport, I was wiped out by the middle of the day!

The collections were just incredible — I sat front row at Jenny Packham, one of my all time favorites.  And the incredibly elegant basics at Rachel Roy and Rachel Zoe were just amazing.  I’m going to have dreams about that halter jumpsuit.

And in other news — by Thursday, I’ll be done with the bar exam and not so crazed all the time!  Look for exciting things coming up on Sugarlaws!  (Maybe even… a recipe!!!)

nyfw: shows, day two

February 23rd, 2012 · 7 Comments

At this point, it’s a little surreal to look at these pictures, since after getting home from New York, I’ve literally done nothing but study for the bar exam, to the exclusion of basic human necessities like getting dressed, brushing my hair and eating normal meals.  I know you guys must be getting sick of hearing about it, but my brain is so overloaded that I basically have nothing else to talk about.  But if you want to hear about the Rule Against Perpetuities?  I can tell you *all* about that.  (Actually, no I can’t, it’s incredibly arcane and confusing and probably 99% of people who pass the bar still don’t understand it).  Yesterday I actually thought about getting dressed and doing some outfit pictures, but then I made another 87 flashcards on Torts instead.

But on to happier memories: I had such an amazing day on Saturday.  You’ve already seen a few preview photos, but you haven’t seen some of my absolute favorites: the bold warrior harnesses at Herve Leger, the sweet black and white bird prints at Tibi,the whimsical detail at Jill Stuart.  It’s almost enough to get me through through next week!

nyfw: what i wore, day three

February 22nd, 2012 · 13 Comments

When I bought this skirt, I wasn’t totally sure about it.  I mean, a bright orange peplum skirt?  Where exactly would I wear that?

And then I remembered… Fashion Week.  Because let’s face it, if there’s anywhere in the world where people would fully appreciate a girl in a bright orange peplum skirt, it’s there.

And they did.

ASOS skirt, Topshop tank, gifted Falke tights, Chanel bag, gifted Samatha Wills bracelets, C. Wonder necklace, Chloe sunglasses, Theyskens Theory wedges, Zara cape.

and the shows (day one)

February 20th, 2012 · 3 Comments

Looking at these pictures just put the hugest smile on my face!  I can’t believe these were only a week ago — it already seems so surreal!

And speaking of amazing and surreal, I couldn’t even believe it when I saw TWO of photos of myself on the New York Times website this weekend!  I immediately emailed everyone I’ve ever met.  I mean, the New York Times!  They didn’t even cover our wedding, but my hot pink jeans?  Yup, those made the cut.  Check out the picks here and here!

I eased into Fashion Week with a few terrific shows on Friday — Rebecca Minkoff, always one of my favorites, Brandon Sun, and the ever-adorable Kate Spade.  I’m trying to organize all the gorgeous pieces I saw into a few key trends for next fall, and so far on my list are polka dots, luxe leather pieces, and major color (not necessarily in the same outfit)!  Bright blues, greens and reds aren’t going away any time soon, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

I’ve basically been studying for the bar exam for 18 hours a day since getting home, so my life went from very exciting and glamorous to a lot less so in the blink of an eye.  I’ll be so happy in two weeks when this is all over!  (Wish me luck!)
