NYFW: a little pink, a little punk

September 13th, 2012

I’m finally home after a crazy, whirlwind trip to NY (and back to Texas and back to New York again) and can’t wait to go through all my photos this weekend!  This week was such an awesome, incredible experience and it’s going to take me a few days just to recover.

But I couldn’t resist showing you a quick, fun thing I did with my hair one night: pink tips!  I am about as far from punk rock as you can get, but for Betsey Johnson’s 70th Birthday and Fashion Show, I figured I’d have a little fun.  I’m usually a high-heels-all-the-time girl, but there’s a special spot in my heart that will always be reserved exclusively for Converse sneakers. 

The technique I used for chalking my hair is here, but this time I wet the chalk with water for a more vibrant color.  I want to do this every weekend!

The show itself was a total madhouse, but I managed to snap a great shot of Besty, balloons, glitter and the models in the finale!  What a party.

On me: Rebecca Minkoff bag, Converse sneakers, Topshop dress, By Boe necklace.

    I believe I read this was Betsy’s last show, or perhaps next to last.  My sister-in-law went to her Fall 2012 show earlier in the year and she said it was a lot of fun.

    You’re so amazing! After reading your posts on your blog, you are very lucky because all your dresses and outfits look good on you!! Is it because of your body type or you’re just too gifted? Thanks for the post. You rocked that outfit, btw.
