My NYFW Survival Kit

NYFW Survival Kit

Its my last day of NYFW today, but don’t worry, I have plenty of more photos to share.  Secretly, I’m kind of excited that the spectacle is over so that I can crawl back into bed and not wear heels for the rest of my life.  I know, I know — you’re going to hear it a lot (if not from me, then from others!) that NYFW is exhausting.  NYFW is cray.  NYFW is a beast.  It’s all of the above, but in the best kind of way.

So instead of pretending that it’s such a burden to attend parties, shows and presentations (it’s all still very surreal!), I’m going to show you my tools for conquering Fashion Week!

The Catchall: If there’s anything that NYC has done to me, it has turn me into a bag lady.  I’m usually schlepping around my stuff in a giant-ass tote (in black or brown), which means I’m also probably digging through the bottomless pit for my phone, keys or business cards.  So inserting a bright little clutch helps me keep organized and sane.

The Ride: Anyone who’s anyone rolls up to Lincoln Center in a town car, an Uber or at least a taxi cab.  Me?  I’m a public transportation kind of gal, which means you can find me cruising underground on the subway or pedaling away on a CitiBike.  Yes, I’m probably the only one who bikes from showroom appointment to launch party … but that’s just how I roll.

The Pout: I don’t usually wear much makeup in my day to day, but when it’s time to put my game face on, I need need need a pop of color on my lip.  I’m playing around with some darker shades this fall like this cranberry red and this dark plum.

Statement Rings and Bracelets

The Bling: You know I love a good arm party, but more recently, I vowed to step up my ring game.  Say hello to this double ring and this spiraled gem — two recent acquisitions from this past weekend, both of which I will probably never take off my fingers again.

Nude Lace Up Heels

The Feet: High heels and I have a very volatile relationship.  My best friend and about 45-minutes later … my worst enemy.  I’m a bit of a weakling when it comes to standing on my tippy toes for extended periods of time, but I do my best to power through before switching to flats.  Thankfully, I got my hands on a little magic potion called Sole Serum — a spray that relieves foot pain for up two hours.  Um hello heaven!  The regular bottle is slim enough to fit in your purse, but it comes in a mini size for every possible scenario.  I promise you, it’s a lifesaver!

Healthy Immune Boosting Juice and Booster Shots

The Liquids: After having not been sick in almost a year, I began to think the germs on the subway had made me impervious to illness.  I learned I was wrong when I conveniently developed a sore throat and a pounding headache on the first night of Fashion Week.  Lucky me!  Since then, my liquid diet has been a rotation of prosecco and cold-press juices because after a week like this, I think double ginger booster shot followed by a glass of bubbly is exactly what the doctor ordered.

A Little Love

Pink Tulle SkirtInstead of getting straight back on the grind, I thought I’d start the week with a little romance.  Gold foil, pink tulle, sparkly sequins … it’s definitely not your usual work wear.  But spring is almost here and I’m welcoming a new change of pace … hopefully one that involves plenty of sunshine, outdoors and adventure.  Happy Monday loves!

leopard, leather & late nights

Happy Monday!  Normally, I start off the work week to much disdain, but I don’t have much to complain when 1) I’m coming back from a relaxing holiday weekend, 2) I’m kicking off the week with a killer outfit and 3) I’m sharing a fabulous giveaway with you (more on that below)!

Today, I’m throwing it back a week when we went out to celebrate Tracy’s birthday.  We did dinner and drinks in the East Village and naturally, leopard and faux leather go hand in hand with late night adventures.
