Thankfully a streetstyle photographer at NYFW snapped a few shots of my look at Lincoln Center and was kind enough to pass them on to me. They turned out to be my only photos of this outfit before I tragically lost my red glasses! Yes, they were only $5 from Charlotte Russe but they were priceless to me. Perfect little pop of color. Tears, many tears. Overall, the look was a bit casual and summery for Fall Fashion Week, I’ll grant you, but it is just so stinkin me, I simply had to don it.
This is the day I met 203948602 people and ate the best meal of my life. Among other things! Such as a nice relaxing morning Epicurie Boloud breakfast pastry and coffee with Chelsea at the pavilion across from Lincoln Center. So much fun just being in the middle of all the fresh fashion buzz. Shortly after, we headed backstage with Tracy Reese, where we got a glimpse of the styling and beautifying that was taking place. The hair, as led by stylist Edris Nicholls, was curled, backcombed, and pinned for a soft, romantic look. Make-up artist, Mally Roncal, together with the company Shu Uemura, focused on creating a high-shine, dewy/natural look with the art really happening in the eyes. The graduations with pinks, plums, and golds were stunning.
While make-up and hair is ever-important, it must be working in synchrony to let the star of the show be the clothes. And weren’t they ever!
Tracy Reese brought a stellar collection to the runway. The prints were striking and memorable, each so ready for wear, by a bold fashionista all mixed together, or by a more simply-stated lady integrated with some classic pieces. As a printmixing fan, I adored how the looks were styled. Made me want to boost my silk neck-scarf collection by tenfold, no doubt about that! Tracy Reese paraded multiple new trends for spring, such as crop tops, the color orange, all-white looks, the black & white color combination, as well as vintage florals. The collection was one of my favorites of the week.
Talk about fish-out-of-water experiences every 30 seconds at the Reward Style Party. So many familiar faces, but none of them having ever been seen in 3D. One thing I have to say… Instagram has made it way more possible for me to get to know and stay in touch with so many different bloggers. I love visiting blogs when I have time, but I always check my Instagram feed, and it feels so much more personal sometimes, depending on the blog, I guess! So it was really great to be able to connect in person with ladies I’ve bonded with through Instagram/blogging, etc.
The Glam Media Dinner held true to its name and was everything glamorous. It was held at Morimoto, one of the top 100 restaurants according to top food critics. Let me tell you, I agree with those food critics. We had a generous sampling menu of so many intricate plates, with a wide variety of flavors for the palette. I still dream about this dinner.
