Well finally the weekend hit and there was no slowing down! Staying organized is key at this point in order to stay on-top of my schedule and I only attended shows/events that truly fit my style and that I was already a fan of before NYFW. Too often it's tempting to say yes to everything, but I had to prioritize. Even so, I was low on sleep and relied a little too much on coffee to get me through! Here is what I did:
I started off early on Saturday morning with a shoot for Alexis Bittar, it actually wasn't as cold as it looks- this was probably the warmest I had been in the morning which was a far cry from the freezing temps from the day before! I shot with the amazing photographer Candice Lake. See the final project HERE.
Right after the shoot I hurried off to change for the Lacoste show! The show was very fun and something I wouldn't typically expect. The ground featured soft soil with tiny rocks everywhere- it reminded me of landing on the moon! The collection fit the venue theme- graphic space inspired tees and velvet patchwork. I also noticed an emphasis on 90s grunge which I loved! I especially liked the full camel look with the large mohair sweater.
For the show I wore a cozy pleated sweater dress. There was still so much snow on the ground that I needed a functional but stylish outfit, and the white boots added a sporty sophisticated vibe but I was still practical.
Next, I headed to the Badgley Mischka offices for a fitting for their show on Tuesday. I ended up not being able to choose between a navy or red dress- loved them both! :)
I was so looking forward to the Jonathan Simkhai show and it did not disappoint! First thing I noticed when I sat down? A tee that said “Feminist AF” I assumed the runway would also have a similar bold message.
Many of the pieces were a bit more jeweled than I usually see from his pieces- very regal. I was obsessed with the camel fur coats with slip dresses and the monochrome white look. He did a great job making every piece look very wearable- I'm such a huge fan of the line!
The J.Crew Fall presentation was very cool, they used real people (instead of models) of all ages, ethnicities and sizes -even one that was around the age of 10 and reminded me so much of Jadyn!
Trends I noticed for the women's collection were layered pullover sweaters, plaid. The colors featured were mostly red and navy- a bit preppy and schoolgirl chic.
This day is was very rainy and I needed something a bit waterproof, this jacket worked out great. Also- not sure if you can tell but my tights looked layered with socks over, but they're actually just one piece! :) done and done!
