Suit Up

H&M blazer, Zara blouse, H&M shorts, vintage Dooney & Bourke bag, Steve Madden heels, Free People sunglasses, vintage earrings, Kate Spade necklace, Topshop ring

I'm usually not one for business attire (my job doesn't even call for it), but when I saw this short suit at H&M last week I just couldn't resist. I love it's neutral color scheme because it allows me to pair it with fun colors and prints.  And the shorts keep it fun and playful, and not too business-like.

Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere

Club Monaco dress & belt, Kate Spade bag (as a clutch), J.Fay Earrings, Kate Spade sunglasses, Kate Spade necklace, Topshop ring

I recently found this amazing, silk Club Monaco dress at "Second Time Around" (a secondhand, consignment store).  There are locations not just in NY, but all over the US...  I highly recommend checking one out in a city near you:  Second Time Around

As you can probably imagine, it was pretty tough walking around cobblestone streets in those heels.  The things we do for fashion...

NYFW wrap up

Zara sweater, Gap t-shirt, Zara skirt, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Crown Vintage boots, Kate Spade sunglasses, Marc Jacobs watch, J. Fay earrings, Topshop & H&M rings

New York Fashion Week was a long and tiring, yet exciting week.  I couldn't get to as many shows as I would've liked this time around because I had to work. But next time I will make sure to put in some vacation days ahead of time so that I can get the full experience.

This was an outfit I wore earlier this week while attending shows.  My new burgundy MAM bag (from Rebecca Minkoff) was a life saver during fashion week. It was able to hold my DSLR, a pair of flats (a necessity in NYC), makeup, and pretty much everything I needed.

P.S.  I'm so excited for fall weather/fashion that I'm wearing jackets even when the sun is shining.

Erin Bar SS2013

Late 50's, femme fatale was the vibe of Erin Barr's spring/summer 2013 presentation at New York Fashion Week.  The black, white, & red theme keeps each look classic while cut-outs, leather, & thigh high slits provided a modern edge.

Cateye glasses, clean angles, unexpected details, side-swept updos, & pops of red...
it's no wonder Erin Barr's collection was one of my favorites so far.

Fashion's Night Out

Zara top, H&M shorts, Nine West heels, Zara bag, Marc Jacobs watch, H&M earrings, Topshop & H&M rings

Last night NYC turned into a veritable circus of fashionistas (& a few male tagalongs).  
It was the fourth annual Fashion's Night Out, NYC's pre-fashion week celebration.  Stores hosted parties with DJs, bands, giveaways, discounts, and lots of free drinks.  The streets of New York were quite a spectacle, akin to New Years Eve in Times Square & Halloween in the East Village.  Herds of shoppers filled stores & the downtown city streets to the point where it was almost impossible to move.

While it is fun to shop & sip on free wine/champagne, I may consider avoiding the crowds & going straight to the after party next year.
