new york fashion week: day one

February 10th, 2011

I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t thinking about Fashion Week when I bought this cape.  When it’s this cold out (25 degrees in NYC right now!), Fashion Week quickly devolves into a battle of “Who Has The Cutest Coat?”

And, well, I do.  This Zara cape is an easy statement piece that feels really unique in a sea of black peacoats and trenches.  I had nearly a dozen photographers take my picture on the way into, inside and out of the tents today, including one from Elle Japan!  But, of course, I’m the dope who didn’t bring any business cards to Fashion Week, so hopefully they all got my name and blog right! 

You guys are on style-spotting duty — if you see a photo of me somewhere, please send me the link!  It will totally make my day.

Zara cape, gifted Brahmin handbag, J. Crew necklace and sweater, Intermix belt, gifted Juicy Couture pants.

    I LOVE this look!  That cape is amazing and the belt and the pearls add just the right amount of detail!

    Darling!  It’s the day version of your romper outfit sort of, right?

    Yes!  That’s exactly what it is — also the slightly warmer version!

    Love this outfit! And I love the photos from the first show 😀
    You’re so lucky that you get to experience it 😀 so fun that everyone got pictures of you, hehe 🙂
    (I need to order my business cards for if I ever go to an event…haha…better to have them sitting around than to need some and not have any)

    I know!  I can’t believe I forgot them (#1 rule of fashion week)!  I actually need new ones because they use my old email address, but they’re still better than nothing!

    […] Capes are pretty versatile – they can be worn for a more casual look with skinny jeans and boots, or more dressed up with some accessories as seen here. […]
