Next week is the beginning of New York Fashion Week. While the shows are primarily for those who work within the industry (buyers and press), there are ways to celebrate the excitement by attending New York Fashion Week events open to the public. These events often include entertainment, drinks, prizes, and a slew of good memories to share with friends before the end of summer. Honestly, sometimes these are way more fun to attend.
Here are a list of New York Fashion Week events open to the public.
Last season I went backstage with Aveda for the Tibi Fall/Winter 2018 runway show. I was able to capture the latest hair and beauty trends as well as the newest pieces from Tibi. The collection is full of beautiful and vibrant colors in very classic silhouettes. Each piece is oversize for Fall, which I love especially for layering. There are hints of metallic running through the collection, a trend we will be seeing a lot this season. I personally love the faux fur bomber jackets. Take a look below!
Nicholas K recently opened their first brick and mortar in New York City. The duo design team have always been one to watch during New York Fashion Week, and is thrilling to see their collection up close. “We wanted to have a canvas to share our vision, meet our clients and educate them about the versatility of each design and the fibers we use.” – Nicholas Kunz.
We constantly hear the words ethical fashion, but if you are like me, sometimes it can be confusing in what that exactly means! A simple definition is that ethical fashion involves clothing and cosmetics that are manufactured in a way that causes minimal harm to others and the environment. A growing number of people are investing in ethical brands in order to preserve our ecosystem and promote better work environments. Gratefully, nowadays there are more choices when it comes to buying ethical fashion, while in previous years it was limited to certain styles. Today, let’s discuss the four main types of ethical fashion.
Happy Saturday! We made it to the weekend, and sometimes the best way to celebrate is with some online shopping. There are a few incredible sales happening right now that I thought you may want to check out. Whether you are prepping for back to school, or need a few last minute summer looks, here is some perfect options in this edition of August Weekend Sales Round Up!
Have you seen? The classic Dior Saddle Bag is back. The mega return of the saddle bag took place this year, and most recently hitting mainstream style influencers since July. In the 90s the Dior Saddle bag was iconic and appeared all over different high profile shows such as Sex and the City.
Today, Bella Hadid to top bloggers are carrying the vintage looking Dior Saddle bag. Take a look below:
An emerging trend spotted on bloggers and celebrities alike is wearing a trench coat as a dress. Meghan Trainor recently wore the trend by Victoria Hayes, a New York City designer, at the TCA Upfronts in Hollywood. The multi colored iridescent trench coat is part of Victoria Hayes Fall 2018 collection.
I personally love how Meghan styled the look, keeping the attention on the beautiful trench coat by adding a few fun accessories such as the mega hoops. I am also excited to watch how others style a trench coat as a dress for the upcoming season. When done right, it is a classic look that will have heads turn. What do you think of the trend? Would you rock this Victoria Hayes trench? Let me know in the comments.
There are only a few day left of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. On August 6th, all items will go back to regular retail price. So if you haven’t picked up a few things for Fall, now is the time do so. You can take a look my favorite items from the sale as well as beauty picks. Today, I am sharing a bunch of last minute steals that will have you set for Fall. Think boots, home goods, and comfy sweaters. Of course, I had to throw in some designer pieces that RARELY see a discount. Seeing luxury pieces with a massive discount is one of the reasons why I love the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Coming back to America after traveling around the world, was nothing less than a shock to the system. I learned so much, grew as a person, and changed while I was away. One thing that ignited in my persona is the desire to endlessly explore.
While away, I gained a new found appreciation for New York City. After visiting 7 countries and 12 cities abroad, there is no place like New York. It is the melting pot of so many types of people and cultures. There is so much going on at all times of the day and night. There are a variety of neighborhoods packed with culture and sightseeing. It’s impossible to go hungry with all the delicious food options.
