During New York Fashion Week, I had the honor to go backstage during the GCDS show with Maybelline New York. Backstage is a completely different experience than being front of house. It opened my eyes to what actually occurs minutes leading up to the show. If you want to see what happens backstage with Maybelline New York, keep reading!
My absolute favorite part about Fall is breaking out the boots. I love my over the knee boots from Stuart Weitzman, which you can see how I styled here. I plan on styling these boots in an even more casual way very soon to share on the blog. These over the knee boots are so versatile and will add to any look! Definitely worth the investment.
As I write this, I just completed New York Fashion Week. I can’t believe how fast it went! While it is fresh in my mind, I wanted to recap Day 1 and all the amazingness that happened. First of all it rain, all day. Luckily it is the only rainy day of this week. Beyond that, I began the week with Pamella Roland. This is my second show with the designer, and I have loved each collection. The Spring Summer 2018 collection pairs very whimsical pieces (tulle and illusion dresses) with structured and luxurious numbers (feather capes, and wired corset dresses). The beading throughout is what stunned me the most.
I am, and always have been, a purse person. I am a sucker for handbags and often buy the most illogical ones. Why? It’s just a fun way to add a bit of personality and style to a look! I think a purse really tells you about a person and their preferences. Plus if you are going to take a little risk in fashion, the easiest way is with something you carry. I love that you can change out your purse often and try new trends, looks, and aesthetics.
Hi my loves!
I cannot believe it is September already. This Summer went so fast, I blinked and it is almost over! We still have a few more weeks before it is officially Fall (aka my favorite season). This year though, I am kind of sad Summer is ending. I actually had a really nice relaxing Summer. I didn’t travel or do much of anything, but it was a welcomed treat to stay still. I mentioned in an earlier post this week, last summer I moved three times! Which I guess is why staying still and not running around too much is a dream!
This is my second installment of how to prepare for New York Fashion Week. Last Thursday, I did a run down on what to pack and where to stay during NYFW. Today I am sharing my top apps to use during New York Fashion Week! Even if you aren’t attending the shows, these will help you prep for a big event especially around the holiday season. Check it out!
Last year, I wrote an article Is Rent The Runway Unlimited Worth It. Since then, it has become one of the most popular articles I have written to date. I figured, when I was writing the article I had only been using the service for a few months and it was relatively brand new to the market. A year has gone by and not only has my experience changed, but the product (rent the runway unlimited) has changed as well. See if it is still worth it below!
It is here! New York Fashion Week, Fall Winter 2018 is about to begin. Manhattan is currently preparing for the hundreds of shows. Photographers are prepping their gear, charging camera batteries and clearing out room on their memory cards. Fashion buyers have sculpted their schedule to include several shows every single day. Fashion influencers have prepped and re-prepped every look they will be wearing.
Happy Labor Day weekend, friends! I am super excited for the three day weekend. I am planning on seeing friends, doing some shopping, relaxing, and prepping for New York Fashion Week. It is chilly this weekend in New York City, so I am busting out the sweaters already! I can’t wait for the pumpkin spice lattes to come back.
Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorite labor day sales with you. These are happening these weekend to celebrate Labor Day. I am super stoked for Century 21 Labor Day Sale, I found these Celine Sunglasses for under $150 (originally $500!).
Etsy is having their very first sale! I love this because I get to support local and small shops while saving a bit of cash. I really love these rose gold personalized jewelry, they make great gifts and are super cute.
My third pick from the sale is Gilt City. I love shopping their site daily, but with the additional discount, it is so hard to resist! It’s a sale on top of a sale. You can shop facials to cooking classes, to lavish getaways. They also have shoes and clothing for sale.
