There were the fashion shows, the meetings with designers, the mingling with celebrities, and even some fabulous vintage shopping scores (including the bubblegum pink silk dress I'm wearing, above), but the true highlight of New York Fashion Week for me was a dinner out with good friends at The Waverly Inn. Over kale salads, crab cakes, french fries and salted chocolate, we talked books, relationships, work(ing hard!), and fashion, of course. (Everyone agreed that Altuzzara hit a Spring 2014 homerun.) I even got an Instagram lesson from my friend J.J. Martin, pictured above. That we dined in glam central was also exciting--i.e., we were seated across from model Karolina Kurkova (it was comforting to see her actually eat!) and a few tables away from a party Cameron Diaz was hosting. All in all, it was an inspiring fun-filled evening on top of a busy week. Below are some pics, and stay tuned for my favorite trends and takeaways from the the action!
Here I am day one of NYFW outside Lincoln Center. You may recall the J.Crew statement necklace and the Lavish Alice skirt from previous posts. I love how they come together in this outfit to create a funky tribal feel. P.S. If I could do the boots over I would--something a little less heavy but this Joie pair did make running around between shows actually doable.
One of my outfits (yes, that's my torso) made a cameo in a New York Times video (above) about cool elements and patterns from Fashion Week. The blue skirt is actually a dress, the upper half concealed by an old but still very much loved Topshop sweater. I'm toting a Clare Vivier clutch and wearing Zara booties. You can see the video here!
In between shows one day, I slipped into sandals (picked up in Athens!) and roamed around Soho in this recently purchased Asos romper that's as cool and flowy as it looks!
