New York Fashion Week is over! Sad to see you go but more than ready to get back to my normal daily routine. Ask any blogger, editor, photographer or industry person that attends fashion week and they will tell you it feels like a month of craziness rather than a week. That being said I have a huge pile of laundry to do and things are a mess! Now that I’m getting back to the usual swing of things I want to recap my time during New York Fashion Week. Here are the outfits I wore during the week. I will also have a rundown of events and fashion shows up soon.
Day one I mixed my love of vintage pieces with modern accessories. The coat is a vintage piece that was handed down to me from a family member who no longer wanted it. I knew when I wore it, it would be a hit. The coat has a semi-weight to it perfect for transitioning into seasons. I left it open when I was in between shows, but buttoned it for warmth at night. The inside is fully lined in a green lining, while the sleeves are embroidered with roses. The overall coat has pin strips for a classic feel. The dress is also a vintage dress handed down to me by a family member. Its a very light material with no lining perfect for summer. The shoes came from Payless Shoesource and the purse is from Target. I topped the look off with shades from Target.
Day two for me was Sunday, I could have gone to a few shows on Saturday but I was too tired! I knew that day would feel more like fall, so I thought it was time to break out another awesome coat. The camel wrap coat is from Boohoo and was given to me by a close friend, Lillie Morales of the blog JerseyFashionista. Don’t you love it when you and your friends have similar taste! The coat is very light but the large collar and the ability to wrap the coat around you feels like you’re wearing a large blanket. The boho style top came from Boscovs while the baby blue pant was another piece given to me by a family member that I believe came from Target. The grey kitten heel pumps came from Primark and the purse is from Wilsons Leather. Courtesy of my mothers closet, because that was the best purse for the look. My mother and I have almost exactly the same style as well.
Day three I was tired of wearing heels and so it was a day for cute flats. I decided to feel super NYC and go mainly black. The dress is from Boscovs and has a high low hem. A great everyday dress I’ve worn to work as well. I continued the great coats trend with a firey red bomber with honeycomb mesh detail and a gold zipper. This gem perfect for events like fashion week was found locally at Glitterbuzzstyle Boutique. This trendy boutique is own by fellow blogger Chastity Palmer. The ballet style flats came from I.N.C at Macy’s while the bag is London Fog. Simple hoops completed my comfy yet chic look.
Day four I wore some unique finds that were both vintage and modern. The green dress is a knit dress from the brand Torn by designer Ronny Kobo. originally almost $200 I found it at a pop up sample sale in Chelsea Market a few years back for way cheaper. The dress is intricately knit with an attached knit lining. It is a piece of art to say the least. The pin striped coat is a vintage piece given to me by a family member. It came with a matching dress that I wear separately. The look was finished with a purse from Target and block heels from Payless. I added gold jewelry for sparkle.
Day five I was ready for heels again and wanted more of a rock and roll look. My dress is a vintage piece given to me by a family member and has a snake skin print and A-symmetrical hemline. Its a very light dress with a lace up corset back. The faux leather jacket is from Burlington and the booties are from Rock and Republic found at Khols. I finished the look with a lace and bow chocker from Glitterbuzzstyle and wide brimmed hat from Target. I felt the London Fog purse went perfect for this outfit as well.
Day six I wanted to feel comfortable yet chic so I mixed a bit of athlesuire with my outfit. The snake skin print wrap dress is from Express and is a great office piece as well. The sneakers are from Keds which if you don’t know about them, you should! I threw on my jacket and purse and was ready to go.
Fashion trends come and go, but true style is instinctual and eternal. You don’t need the latest and most expensive pieces to feel confident in what you are wearing. As you can tell here and on Instagram I love mixing high and low as well was vintage and modern pieces. Find whatever is your style and express yourself through the art of fashion!
Next post will be about Fashion Week itself. Let me know what your style is! T.S.
