New York Fashion Week is: glamorous, exhausting, educational, and sometimes painful, but at the end of the day it is SO much fun! It is glamorous because everyone dresses to IMPRESS. It’s exhausting because it’s several consecutive days of “performing” and primping. It’s educational because you are learning about the upcoming trends. And if you’re wearing the wrong shoes, it can literally be painful. But despite the good, the bad, and the ugly, there is no better way to network with colleagues and brands in the fashion industry!
I find it so much fun to meet the face behind the @ symbol. You know that girl you’ve been following for months (maybe even years) that you just know you’d connect with. The people watching is also very entertaining. Just when you think you nailed it with your outfit, someone walks by in the most incredible ensemble that you’ve ever seen. Then there are those that leave you wondering…people go to great lengths to get their picture taken by street photographers! You already know my visit to BaubleBar HQ was a trip highlight, but spending time with Instagram friends (that’s a thing now!) and bouncing ideas of off each other is invaluable.
Now let’s discuss the outfit! Most of my NYFW looks are not what you would refer to as “everyday attire.” But can you blame me? There is only one week a year where ANYTHING goes – so go all out! I chose to mix in this off the shoulder maxi dress because it’s simply chic. It is so satisfying when a brand new dress fits perfectly right out of the package. With a three-four inch heel, even a shortie like me can get away wearing this. The color is a great fall hue, and it can appear dressy or not. What would you say if I told you this off the shoulder maxi is only $24?!
