New York Fashion Week Style Diary : Part 1

September 22, 2015

Hey lovies!

New York Fashion Week has come and gone, it was a great season for me.  Rather than running to every show I was invited to, I took it easy and went with the flow – attending only the ones I was most drawn to and relaxing during the down time. This “chill state of mind” also translated into my attire for the week!

I participated in four out of seven Fashion Week days, and each event brought something new to the table. I’ve split the four looks into two posts, so let’s get right into the first two looks! 🙂


My mindset was “more is more” rather than “less is more.”  I am usually the type of person to pair one statement clothing item with somewhat basic clothing, and jazz it up with statement accessories. But for Day One, I wanted to play around with statement pieces. I started my outfit with a sheer bathing suit tunic (cami under) with a lace white skirt over it. (I cut out the lining in the skirt). I tucked the tunic in under the skirt to replace the lining and to cover my goods, of course! lol  I finished the look with my vintage statement blazer and added rugged booties to the mix.  A lot going on, right?!  But I loved it!  Fashion Week is my time to play around with looks I wouldn’t normally try. It’s the perfect gauge to see if it’s a hit (try it again for everyday) or a miss (keep that one as a memory). What are your thoughts? Hit or Miss?

P.S: Day 1 was a rainy/gloomy day, so I didn’t take professional pics. Excuse the quality of my iPhone!

My mindset was “Chill Mode.”  I really wanted to wear something comfortable and loose because it was a Saturday, and I knew I would probably be out all day and through the evening.  I just didn’t want to be moving around the city in tight-fitting, uncomfortable clothing.  I centered my outfit around this great houndstooth cape jacket that I thrifted recently.  Adding a pair of destroyed boyfriend jeans and a long sleeveless white button-down to the mix, I finished the look with single-strap heels. I am so glad I chose this look because I felt so relaxed and carefree during the entire day.  Amazing how your outfit can help set the tone for your day! 🙂
