So excited to be back in the swing of things and what better way than to kick things back off with a recap of my New York Fashion Week experience!! Not only did I have the time of my life, it was an experience that I will NEVER forget! For YEARS I’ve been tweeting and telling friends and family how bad I wanted to go to NYFW and this year it happened!!
From the moment I stepped off the plane I was like a kid in a candy store! It was my first time in New York so I was ready to explore and live out my fashion dreams! My first show of the day was the Novis presentation, so once I got to my hotel room I had a small window of time to do a quick outfit change, snap a few photos and hail a cab to make it on time! BTW Uber is like the best thing ever! Not only are the incredibly affordable, a few of their drivers were extremely nice and made our trips around the city enjoyable! If you’re in New York or any city that has Uber I definitely recommend their services!
I was super excited to have been given the chance to attend Jordanna’s show because not only did I fall in love with her her fall collection from Spring St. Louis Fashion Week but she definitely has become a fave designer of mine. The presentation was located in a super chic studio in Manhattan’s Meatpacking district and as soon as I entered the studio and was instantly greeted with a glass of wine and a room full of beautiful people. Let me start off by saying I LOVED Jordanna’s Spring 15 collection. Everything from the hand embroidered dress to the cobalt gown to the lemon pop print romper captured my heart! She definitely wasn’t afraid to mix patterns and prints and I loved every moment! Pattern play will be on trend this Spring and the Novis presentation gave us insight in to just that!
For my first show I decided to go for something more casual chic. I knew I would be exploring NY after the show so I opted to go for a chunky caged sandal, a printed skirt and my fave denim shirt. For my accessories I went for a bold red lip, gold trimmed sunnies and my fringed H&M bag. I was really pleased at how this look came together, especially seeing that I made the last minute decision to wear the denim shirt was a jacket of sorts and pair it with a black crop top underneath.
My time spent exploring the city was magical! I was able to spend time with some of my fave bloggers Latoya and Carmen and they definitely helped to make the first night a memorable one! Our first stop was this super cute Thai food restaurant called Qi! The decor was breathtaking and I loved having a chandelier sitting on our table as we ate! After stuffing our faces we decided to take a trip to Times Square and it.was.EVERYTHING! I can definitely see why they call it the City of Lights! I was enamored by everything around me but my fave part was discovering that H&M stayed open until 4am!! (It probably was a good thing that I didn’t budget shopping money because I would’ve been in trouble lol)
By the end of the night my feet hated me and I was ready for a long hot shower! Although I was dead tired, I was beyond excited and couldn’t believe that my dreams were coming true! I went to sleep ready and for Day 2 and what a day it was!
Stay tuned my loves!
