NYFW: what i wore, day five

February 14th, 2013 · 2 Comments


Ok, so, here’s the deal.  I got all ready to go to over to Lincoln Center, did my hair, timed it perfectly… and then walked out of my hotel and realized it was pouring rain.

So if I look a little wet/flustered/disheveled in these photos, it’s because I was expecting a brisk, temperate, sunny day, and got frizz-inducing rain instead.  Seriously, this is what my hair looked like when I left my hotel:

And the Lincoln Center photos were taken literally six minutes later.  UGH!  Somehow I had mentally prepared for snow and slush, but not for rain!  I wound up having to borrow an umbrella from my hotel and then worry the entire day that I was going to lose it.

In any event, this outfit was a little bit of a hodgepodge of what was left over in my suitcase — I felt like I packed really solidly for the first four days and then had three B-list outfits left over, and this was the best of them.  Still, though, I couldn’t have brought a single other thing — I had three suitcases going home as it was, and one of them clocked in at 49.5 pounds!  Just barely saved myself from blowing past the weight limit by picking up this cute carry-on from C. Wonder (when, oh when, will they finally come to Houston?!)  In hot pink, obviously. 🙂

Fashion week coming to an end was so bittersweet — usually I’m wiped out by the time my last day rolls around, but this year I wanted it to go on forever.  I even got a little teary on my way to the airport — but there’s always September to look forward to!

NYFW: what i wore, day four

February 12th, 2013 · 9 Comments


Ok, I’ll go ahead and say it: This has been the best Fashion Week I’ve ever had.

I don’t say that lightly — each season is amazing, and every time I go, I have some new experience that makes me feel so incredibly lucky and grateful. But even with that backdrop, this season blew my mind. I had so much fun getting to see old friends and meet new ones (it’s funny how I feel so close to people even though our primary form of communication is Twitter, Facebook and our blogs), and see so many beautiful, jaw-dropping clothes. I’m going to start putting together my daily recaps tonight, but I am so freaking excited for all these clothes to hit stores next fall. I’m going to start saving now. 🙂

I loved this hat so much the first time that I wore it, I couldn’t resist putting it on again. I love that it’s a little goofy and makes the whole outfit a little more playful — what’s the point of getting dressed up if you don’t have fun with it?

Hope you guys all had a great weekend and stayed out of the slush and snow!
