New York Fashion Week recently ended and it was another whirlwind filled week. I’ve been putting up the fashion shows and events that I went to on my brand new YouTube channel. I opened a YouTube channel because that was the easiest way for me to get content out during the week. Usually during Fashion Week I get home around 1 or 2 in the morning with the need to be up the next morning to go to my next event. Each year since I was in college my participation in NYFW has grown exponentially. Including my position as Editorial Manager for Latinista.com, this leaves me no time to write! In comes Youtube with a quicker alternative to creating and distributing content. Check out my New York Fashion Week videos here!
As usual I wanted to share with you the outfits I wore during New York Fashion Week. Some are already up on my Instagram, while others due to my strapped time schedule during the hectic week had to be photographed at a later date. For this fashion week I decided to get a bit creative with the pieces I wore. The theme for my outfits was transforming pieces to give them a second life. I did however invest in coats in preparation for NYFW, because it becomes your most seen and potentially photographed piece. I only attended four days out of the week, taking one day to create my YouTube channel. New York Fashion Week is fun, exuberating, electric and exhausting! If I’ve learned anything since I started attending fashion week at 18 years old, is taking a day off is not the end of the world!
White Rampage business pant. Tan Perceptions shell. Cape found at the Sugarloaf craft fair, no tags. Payless Boots. Target purse.
Creativity was the name of the game when I turned a dress into a shirt. Derek Heart sweater dress (tucked under the skirt), Diversity leather skirt, Urban Hearts animal print jacket, Maxx New York purse. Payless block sandal and Angelina black coat.
H&M dress (on sale for 15.99!) Enzo Angiolini boots, Calvin Klein coat, Target purse.
I got creative with this outfit as well by turning a maxi dress I usually wear during the summer into a skirt. DKNY puffer jacket, Bitten jean jacket, Faded Glory white tee, Miss Avenue black dress. Enzo Angiolini boots, Target purse and long necklaces that were gifted to me.
The unsung heroes of these outfits? My undergarments keeping me warm during what was a very rainy Fashion Week! Leggings, tights and camisoles for the win! I hope you were inspired to use your clothing in diverse ways! You can see the fashion shows on my YouTube. Be sure to SUBSCRIBE!

This was a really interesting post given that in London (where I used to live) it was all about high end fashion not necessarily practical nor something that everyday people would buy. There was also a LOT of negativity around size 0 models of course, so I like that the New York fashion week appears to be different.

I liked your idea of using pieces in a new way. It’s like getting a brand new item, except you already have it in your closet! I loved the cape and the print jacket. I’ve been wearing capes all winter and they’re so comfy, but I don’t have a print jacket. Now I think I really need one!

You look fabulous in all of the outfits, but that first one is my favorite. I’m totally using that for inspiration for a new outfit!
