This NYFW season was unlike any other I’ve ever been to in my 6 years of attending. For one thing, Day 1 was my busiest day- with 4 shows (BCBG, Jay Godfrey, Dannijo, and my fave of the day: Desigual) plus one event: Peter Pilotto for Target. After my first show, I left the tents and snapped some pics. My pal, fashion writer Nigel Isaiah joined in, too!
Plus, I got snapped by Marie Claire!
I’m wearing: Vintage Ann Taylor blazer from my mom (sick option on sale from Marc Jacobs)/white tank/Uniqlo wrap skirt (I LOVE this option)/leggings (it was freezing out and these kept me super warm!)/studded boots/Joe Fresh leather bag (obsessed with this Givenchy piece)/Capwell + Co snake bangles, chain bracelet and snake ring/Mercura shades (faves from Michael Kors)
So, I’ve been wearing glasses since I was in first grade (yeah blame the genes!) From this early age, I also found ways to have fun with my ever-present accessory, playing with various colors and shapes. For the last four years, I had the same pair of vintage 1950s cat-eye-esque frames that were more high maintenance than I could manage. They needed to the adjusted every two months and finally last month they totally gave out. Bummer…until Warby. I purchased a pair for my fiancé for Christmas (yeah, his glasses had fallen apart too! What are the chances? lol). I liked his so much, he got me a pair!

I love their cool, vintage look, cat-eye and all. They’re completely sturdy and comfortable! I’m hooked.
Recently, the good people over Warby Parker reached out to share their new collections with me: Spring 2014 and Palm Canyon Collection. It’s all hot, hot, hot! Since getting my new glasses, I’m leaning towards the tortoise shell ones in the Spring collection (I’m obsessed) and the standout cobalt blue Walkers. So chic and smart. Here are my must haves:
Plus a standout from the Palm Canyon Collection:
You’ve gotta check out Warby Parker’s new Spring and Palm Canyon Collection!
Fun fact: for every pair sold, one is given to a person in need. The gift of sight, gotta love it! (Plus, each pair starts at only $95.)
Bomber jackets are the new must have accessory. I found myself falling for the chic layering piece after a recent tv fashion segment where I paired a floral one with boyfriend jeans and heels! The results were amazing. Because I love you, here are 20 of my favorite options to wear now under a coat and by itself when Spring finally arrives! Everything from Topshop to River Island.
