NYFW: What I Wore, Day Three

September 13th, 2013

One of the absolute toughest things about September fashion week is packing for it!  Especially packing for it from Texas, where the weather is still in the nineties almost every day.  Like when you pack for a tropical vacation in the middle of winter, it’s hard to even imagine there are people wearing bathing suits somewhere on this planet when you’re bundled up in hats and scarves and coats.

And it doesn’t help that New York’s weather went a little insane this season.  While I was in town, it was dropping down into the sixties at night (triggering my constant whiny refrain, ‘you guys, I’m so cold‘ — turns out I’ve become a Texan after all!).  And then, right after I left, apparently the temperatures shot up and turned super hot!  (Kind of sad I missed that, actually!)

Buying for cooler temperatures is also a little tricky in Texas — I obviously want to be stylish at Fashion Week, but I also don’t want to buy clothes that I’ll only wear once or twice because they’re just not practical for where I live.  So this denim/leather jacket was a perfect addition — warm enough to keep me cool in September in Manhattan, and for most of the winter in Texas!

    Well I think while you were there it was 97 degrees here in greater Chicago! I joked that the hottest days of the summer were happening in September, because they were! But today it’s suddenly in the 60s, so fall is finally on its way.

    Your outfit seems fine for Texas. You could even carry around that jacket while you’re outdoors and put it on when you get inside a place with A/C! haha

    I am so sorry to say this but in so many outfits you look like a cheap hooker. Why go for this ugly look? You are a pretty girl and should try to be classy and nice looking. The cheap whore look is really terrible. Remember, that the more you reveal, the less attractive the whole is. Unless you are a john looking for a hooker. Please take this advice.
