NYFW: DAY 2.

Saturday, September 12, 2015









This is the first year I've been in NYC for Fashion Week since High School, so I was eager to style some fun looks and attend as many events as possible.  This year I had the pleasure of attending the shows at Couture Fashion Week at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Times Square. I saw a few different collections from Couture designers from several different countries. I also met some great people and was interviewed for a news channel. It was a great experience!

Now onto the outfit. I had fun putting this one together. I am starting to warm up to the return of 70s fashions. Clearly, I am not much of a color or prints person, so I took a minimalist approach and wore pieces with 70s style silhouettes (bell bottoms, chunky heels, off the shoulder shirt, sunnies) in the colors I am most comfortable in (Black & White - as if you don't already know that.) Use this technique when you want to branch out and try something a little outside of your comfort zone. (The opposite is also true, when trying a new print buy it in a silhouette you feel most comfortable in.) This is one of the few outfits I have worn that every piece falls under the same style category. The bookbag with fringe tassels, round sunnies, chunky heels, bell bottoms, off-the-shoulder top, and wide brim hat are all associated with 70s fashion. You can find similar styles in almost every fast fashion store - my favs are F21, H&M, and Zara. A part of me has always admired the hippie culture. I think its because I'm such a free spirit and thats one thing I try to express through my style.

WHAT TO WEAR: NYFW

Friday, September 11, 2015


















New York Fashion Week has just begun and everyone is swarming to the city to check out the upcoming designs for next season. Fashion Week is like Christmas for anyone in the fashion world. I will be attending some events this week (so excited!) so look out for posts on that. I wanted to give you guys some style inspiration for transitioning from Summer to Fall. This is also a great outfit to wear during NYFW, because it's simple with the perfect amount of chic - sure to capture attention. 

Pair a simple T-Shirt dress with a sheer over shirt to elevate your look. Add some fun black accessories (i.e. hat, sunnies, and purse) to pull it all together and complete the look with simple nude pumps. If you're going for a more casual or comfy look, swap the heels for slip on sneakers or Adidas for the perfect comfy chic look (my current obsession.) I'm sure you already know how much I love to wear black, but my addiction is getting stronger. Lately, when I shop I only look at black, white or grey pieces. I try to incorporate some sort of color in all of my looks to keep it from being boring, and I'm all for stepping out of my comfort zone but seriously everything just looks so much better in black! What is your favorite color to wear? (Let me know in the comment section below.)
