I have to say that I am obsessed over this look without question. My obsessions begins with the fact that I am in a huge Jean transition. For the past 2 years, I have drooled over and rocked Hudson Jeans exclusively and then I slipped on a pair of Joe's Jeans at the last minute and the love affair began! I had always heard about their Honey Cut and now I never want to take them off kittens! The Honey is meant for those of us that have those fab curvy butts and I have to say that it looks pretty amaze and I will be combing the racks to continue to add to my Honey/Joe's love affair.
As I mentioned in my Betty Confidential interview, fur is definitely something that has always been in fashion but is definitely a focus within my wardrobe this season. This is such an easy look as it can be outerwear as well as the actual main focus of the look (you can rock henley's, tees and so much more). I love this mixed grey, black, cream fur vest by Ines & Marechal and as many people know, I love belts and this one by Givenchy is so fab that it simply has to be paired together. Pair it up with some fab over the knee wedge boots (stellar); however, all boots are not the same. My current drool worthy brand is Camilla Skovgaard as it's like art when you step and I love the boho chic vibe that it provides. Expect to see a lot more shoes from this brand included within future posts and once you have secured them, you can rock the rest of the look with accessories. I got some time to hang out at the Robert Verdi Fashion Week Lounge and reconnected with one of my fave accessories brands - Linea Pelle! This bracelet is a great way to wrap up the look and then pop on a ring. I'm obsessed with Sandra Dini as It's all about nuvo glam which is my favorite look to rock as it's natural, glam and fab!
I'm always asked about what I wear when I'm at the shows and each season it changes. I remember for Sept 2008, my New York Fashion Week was all about looking super glam and I actually wore Lauren Conrad's first line and it was heels everyday. Ah back when I was a Fashion Week newbie. This season I'm attending a lot of shows but I am also doing backstage coverage as well. So I still need to look fab but I never know what show I'm adding to my schedule and I will be in some tight spots so it needs to make sense. Each day I will give you my Look of the Day and let you know where I was. Above I'm with Jeannine Morris of Beauty Sweet Spot and Michelle Kelerakos of 5WPR at Milk Studios backstage at the Vena Cava show which had makeup by MAC and hair done by none other than Ted Gibson (see the post about it from earlier today). Also thank you to everyone who saw me in Betty Confidential's Bloggers We Love! I am honored that they love me and you can find out more about me as well as fab items for Fall by checking it out here! In addition find out how you can win the looks from APART that you see me talking about.
With fall setting in, I want something that is a bit warm but I can also move in. Like many covering the shows, the new layout and larger areas to travel was a new thing for me so I opted to wear this oversized Vince shirt (super soft and comfy), with skinny jeans and a super cute pair of cowboyesque boots from Spring Shoes that I got at their launch a few days ago. This look was fab, chic and simple AND my Vince shirt was from TJ Maxx! After the Boston trip that I took on where we learned about the brand, I took a trip to their store in the Columbus area and picked out pieces that I could work back into things that I have. I received so many compliments and layered it with my accessories from Pade Vavra, Ted Rossi and Coach (the necklace) and I threw on a bag from the Magnes Sisters to complete the look. I have to say that it is becoming a place that I do love to at least take a peek into to see the brands that they have! Thank you to TJ Maxx and throughout this week you'll see some finds that my team came up with when we stocked up on our looks for the shows!
From now through Sept 16th, you'll see that our posts will be a little different. Our normal slots will change as we're focused on New York Fashion Week which kicks off today. You will get posts about shows, presentations, parties and so much more each day! It's a great way of seeing what's going on whether you're at the shows or just checking in.
