It’s that time of year again when Fashion is all the buzz around New York City!
I am going to a few shows this season, per my friend Audra’s invites, and I am so excited. Fashion week is a busy time for the entire city and I feel very lucky and grateful to witness even a small part of it.
My schedule was booked on Saturday with shows, a pop up, and shooting outfits. I barely had enough time to eat throughout the day, I mainly had snacks at home. I am trying to not spend a lot of money during Fashion Week so anytime I can be at home for food its a plus!
I start my day with a giveaway from Glossier (I’m an affiliate – read post here). Thank you to all who entered, it was so much fun and I hope to do another one soon with Glossier!
Then, I did a get ready with me (GRWM) on Insta stories showing my makeup look for the day. I went with a blue graphic eyeliner that comes up to my crease. I left the lid clear to give emphasis on the lines. I rush to put on my first outfit, which was this silk dress from COS. I felt it was so unique with the blue and green watercolor pattern and the specific ties across the dress. It was so comfortable and flowy. I paired it with a blue Mansur Gavriel bag and Marais USA shoes to complete this aqua inspired look.
I head back home to eat lunch, change clothes, and transition my makeup. I go back on Insta stories to show how I fill in my eyeliner completely to create a thick, blue wing. I wanted a more dramatic eye for a simpler outfit.
The outfit is focused on the form of this top from COS (similar here). I like how it obscures my figure and creates another shape. I paired it with some trousers from Massimo Dutti, gold sandals, and an elegant YSL bag. I loved this outfit because it was casual, yet still really pretty and chic.
From the pop-up, I rush back to Chelsea to see the Oxford Collective shows. This is a part of a design studio that houses small designers. They all show their collections at once, with a few seconds to spare in between. The collections were smaller than other shows and more simple. Some designers had more formal ensembles and others showed more of a simple silhouette with neutral colors.
I go back to my apartment to decompress from the day and rest up. Sunday is a day off because I am still a student and I need to catch on work and sleep.
On Monday, I have class and attend the Hogan McLaughlin show in the evening. This collection was my favorite so far. The geometric cuts, the color combinations, the mixing of textures, and the structure of all the pieces were just sublime. I could totally see myself wearing this collection. I had so much excitement watching the show!
I wore a milky white dress. I wanted to channel what the designer is interested in and after some research I noticed the silhouettes, colors, and hems were similar to this COS dress I own. I paired it with some red boots from AndOtherStories for a pop of color and this super cute bag from DOOZ. The brand DOOZ let me borrow this bag for a show and I am so thankful for that. I will have a special post about the bag and what the brand is all about next week.
Until next season,
