NYFW: what i wore, day five

February 14th, 2013


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!

Photos by Jorge Aguilera.  On me: Alice and Olivia dress (found at T.J. Maxx), Celine bag (also, totally coincidentally, found at T.J. Maxx!), Zara jacket, Theyskens Theory wedges, Alexis Bittar bracelet.
