Wearing: Scandal Collection by The Limited coat / Alexander Wang for HM sweatshirt / Lulu’s skirt / Guess boots / Joe Fresh scarf / Khirma New York bag / Mercura shades Lips: Violet lipstick by Lorac Pro w/ MAC Vino liner
This was one of my fave looks for NYFW. I love the rounded silhouette and strong shoulders. I tend to lead my looks with an edgy vibe, so I paired this girly Lulu’s skirt with an Alexander Wang for H&M sweatshirt. Threw on this Scandal Collection for The Limited coat I received when I was on Good Morning America with Kerry Washington. Set for Day 2!
My first show was Romona Keveza- her first in the US -as she usually shows in Paris. It was absolutely stunning! I could not get over how beautiful the dresses were. Everything from cocktail frocks to elegant ball gowns. I saw so many pieces that would look great as wedding or bridesmaid dresses. (Our big wedding is later this year so you know I was taking note!) I especially loved the vibe. It was very 1950’s -fashion-show-scene when the designer would go through each look, describing it to the attendees. Romona herself was there giving us deets on unique fabrics and other gems. Perfect! After Romona I went back to the office to work on Curl Sistas Hair. Afterwards, I caught a ride with Lexus downtown. I love how they provide cars during NYFW, especially when it was redic-cold this season.
Then back a lil uptown for Rebecca Minkoff. Been a fan of her bags for years and always like to see how she translates to clothing. This season’s fave was the fringe boot. NYFW is a spontaeous time and you really never know what will happen each day. The night before I got an email from a reporter Prune Perromat from AFP- Agence France-Presse (one of the largest newswires in the world. Publications and journalists subscribe to them and use their stories for various outlets). Prune wanted to profile me for a story she was working on – a fashion bloggers experience at NYFW. We agreed to meet up at my next stop- Full Force PR. (You can read the AFP feature here).
While at Full Force I feel in love with the jewelry line- Diabolli Kill, esp. this sick-ass statement ring. After the showroom, Prune and I met up with my husband to go to the Lulu’s party. Lulu’s and I teamed up on some NYFW looks this season so I was excited to come and support. It was such a chill party- great vibes and people. I actually met a bunch of my followers there, which was so nice. This one amazing follower showed me a sketch she did of me from like 4 years ago. Pretty epic. The Lulu’s team was awesome! I love those girls.
I always love bringing Obi to fashion events with me. He’s the best : )
Ended Day 2 with a relaxing massage and the love of my life. Not too bad at all.
