nyfw: what i wore, day two

February 17th, 2012 · 6 Comments

It’s no secret that jackets aren’t a big part of my wardrobe anymore, so I had to put some serious thought into what I could bring to New York this season that would be cute and still keep me reasonably warm!

Fortunately, I picked up this amazing tweed jacket at the C. Wonder opening back in October — and in scrolling through my posts, I realized that somehow I’ve hardly even put it up on here!  (There was this photo from the opening, and a few pics in this post, but that’s it!) I find that absolutely insane, because I’ve probably worn this jacket a hundred times since I got it.

For such a distinctive piece, it’s actually amazingly versatile — it looks tailored and professional over a black shift dress, and a little funky over a patterned blouse.  And, amazingly enough, it’s still on sale in a few sizes

I paired it with this Lanvin top I found at a consignment store in Houston for under $200, and my Theyskens Theory shoes that I’ve worn to death for the past few seasons.  All in all, not bad! 

Gifted C. Wonder jacket, Lanvin top, Theyskens Theory shorts, Via Spiga boots, gifted Banana Republic Aria bag.

nyfw: what i wore, day one

February 15th, 2012 · 17 Comments

Not surprisingly, after a winter of seventy degree Texas weather, I was a little unprepared for New York i February!  I stayed a few blocks from Lincoln Center, so I figured my first day, I could handle walking a couple of minutes without a jacket.  (Yes, I know, really dumb.  Sorry mom!)

But so worth it — I got snapped by Nylon Magazine for their street style gallery!

But what better way to show off my new favorite purchase — these hot pink Rag and Bone jeans?  I’m obsessed — I’ve literally worn them four times in the week since I bought them.  I’m also very happy to report that there was plenty of color on the runways for next fall, so this trend won’t be going away any time soon!

I’m still sorting through all my pics from the shows, so there’s a lot more to come!  But I thought it might be fun to start with what I wore the first day, and take it from there. 🙂

And the best part of all — a group pic of everyone from after the Rebecca Minkoff show!

Rag and Bone jeans, sheer Equipment blouse, Topshop tank underneath, Chanel purse, J. Crew and Alexis Bittar bracelets, Via Spiga leopard heels.

NYFW: Saturday Highlights

February 12th, 2012 · 4 Comments

I almost can’t put words to how beautiful the clothes have been this season.  I’m usually more into spring collections than fall, but I’ve loved all the amazing jackets, tailored pants, and beautiful pops of wintery color that have come down the runways this weekend. 

I have a full set of photos on my SLR that I’ll download when I get home, but I wanted to post a few highlights from this weekend as I go along.  Yesterday’s shows were amazing — warrior details to spice up classic Herve Leger dresses, incredibly beautiful, simple basics at Porter Grey that would fit into any closet, and a mix of menswear-inspired suiting and chic patterns at Tibi.  (And my photos from Jill Stuart, Rafael Cennamo and Vantan Toyko are still to come!)

This has been such an amazing weekend!  It’s kind of one big stimulation overdose, but between the beautiful clothes, the whirlwind busy schedule, and getting to see all my friends, I’ve basically gotten a weekend full of everything I miss about New York!  I’m so, so glad that I was able to make this trip — it was exactly what I needed.  🙂

new york fashion week, here i come!

February 10th, 2012 · 6 Comments

Calvin and Coco recognize our suitcases, so it was a little sad to see them realize that I was packing for a trip and would be leaving them for a few days.  I snapped this pic to remember their cute little faces until I get home!

By the time you guys read this, I’ll probably already be at my first show (Kate Spade)!  Fashion Week became Fashion Week(end) for me this season, but I’m happy to at least get to catch a part of it!  (And I’ve managed to cram 20+ shows into the weekend, so it’s going to be a pretty whirlwind trip!)

I’m going to try to update Sugarlaws from New York if I have time, but if not, be sure to follow me in Twitter and Facebook for real-time updates this weekend!

new york fashion week: what i wore!

September 21st, 2011 · 14 Comments

I spent most of Fashion Week running from show to show — there was even one day where I packed eight shows into a single day!  Needless to say, I barely had a second to snap anything more than an iPhone photo of what I wore that week — so I was so excited when Jorge Aguilera sent me these photos he’d shot of almost every outfit I wore that week! 

You guys were SO helpful in giving me feedback and helping me decide what to wear, so I really wanted to show you the final outfits I ended up with.  I think for the most part, I stayed really clean and minimal — which is pretty impressive, for something like Fashion Week when some people dress so crazily that it could be Halloween. 

I sort of get self conscious walking in and out of the tents, which you can kind of tell by my goofy expression in a few of these.  And apparently I only own one pair of sunglasses (or at least, only one that was cool enough for fashion week)!

Chad and I are slowly getting settled in Houston — Calvin and Coco were so great on the plane, but the vast majority of our possessions are still in transit across the country, which is a little stressful!  We’re biding our time, for now, with crazy things like buying cars (!) and scoping out the city!

First outfit: Theyskens’ Theory dress, Chanel bag and gifted Chanel sunglasses. 

Second outfit: Madewell top, Zara shoes, Chanel sunglasses, borrowed Ippolita bangles, abercrombie shorts. 

Third outfit: Theyskens’ Theory blouse and shorts, gifted Brahmin bag, Rock and Republic heels, Hermes bangle, Chanel sunglasses. 

Fourth outfit: Theyskens’ Theory blouse and shorts, gifted Ralston bag, borrowed Ippolita necklace, Chanel sunglasses.
