new york fashion week: what i wore!

September 21st, 2011

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.

    You look great!  I think minimalist was the way to go because you stand out from a lot of the uber-trendy bloggers I’ve seen.

    If you don’t mind me asking, how tall are you?

    Good luck in Houston!

    I love those color blocked heels as well but the black dress, sunglasses, quilted Chanel is so cute. Modern Breakfast at Tiffany’s; New York classic, a perfect look.

    […] but I don’t really want to spend a lot of time on it.  I actually wore it for a day of New York Fashion Week, in part because braids are basically the most stylish hairstyle you can actually create yourself […]
