Time for a recap of my second day of New York Fashion Week. After struggling to get out of bed and leaving the apartment slightly late for my first show, I rushed to Skylight at Moynihan Station, to be told that I was at the wrong location. Time to slow down and treat myself to a coffee, I decided. Keep reading to learn what other surprises were in store that day.
It was a Saturday and I wanted to be comfortably cool, so I went for a black maxi dress from Choies. I styled it with fishnets and my Nike Air Max 90 Paris Macaron from the City Collection, which were strategically matched to the manicure I got the night before at the Lulu’s Style Studio event. I finished the look with a playful hairstyle and a Lime Crime electric blue lipstick, ’cause if someone is going to tell you that you are in the wrong place, might as well look cool doing it.
So, going back to that coffee… I decided to do some work while enjoying some liquid caffeine before heading over to Rebecca Minkoff’s boutique in SoHo. It was very nice to browse her store, where I fell in love with her Leo Clutch, and got to tell her all about it when meeting her live and in technicolor. While there, I got to meet and hang out with fellow Blogger, Tabitha Serrano from Concrete Islandista. Afterwards, I snatched her up to have lunch with Dara from The Style Senders and Leckie from West Village Wasp.
After lunch, Dara and I jumped into a taxi to head to the Charlotte Tilbury’s Scent of a Dream launch party at the Samsung 837 venue. It was a super fun and exciting event where I got to try virtual reality glasses for the first time ever! I rode a roller coaster and hung out with Kate Moss in outer space. It was amazing! If you have a chance to try virtual reality, definitely go for it. During the event we also got to have our dreams interpreted and our lips read. Very cool experience! After a makeup touch-up, I said my good-byes and headed to Moynihan Station (this time it was the right location) for the Academy of Art University’s fashion show.
As tired as I was, I pushed myself to make it to the show and support my alma mater (I have a MFA in Fashion Journalism from AAU!). The show featured the work of various students. My favorite was the collection of Knitwear Designer, Natalya Sheveleva Robinson. The silkiness of her knit designs, deep beautiful colors and see-through details are perfect for a cool, edgy and comfortable look… Just the way I wanted to feel and dress that same day.
