FW diaries: Part 1

I was wearing:

Free People cape
Vintage blouse, red velvet jacket and hat
Essie "First Love" polish
JewelMint, Patricia Field and other assorted jewelry
GUESS heels (similar here)
Paige Denim pants
Melie Bianco bag (similar here)

The post that was supposed to be up this AM didn't get posted since my wifi was down again! I can't even begin to explain how incredible my day was. BCBGMAXAZRIA was such a fab show, and everything and everyone just looked stunning. For my first time at NYFW, I think I did pretty good! First off, the clothes at the show were phenomenal. Lots of light colors and pastels, and tons and tons of color blocking was seen. Pieces with high collars and super low v-necks were spotted walking the runway. Lots of light blues gracefully fell on all the models bodies. I got lucky because where I was seated I could see the models right before they were about to walk on stage which was so neat. Of course, I stopped for warm apple cider and a gluten-free cupcake at my fave bakery, Magnolia's to end my day on a perfect note. 

For my outfit: I wore my new Free People cape, vintage hat, jacket and blouse, GUESS heels and Paige black cargo pants. My jewelry was assorted JewelMint, Patricia Field, and random stuff stolen from my moms jewelry draw ;) To complete my look I paired my Melie Bianco looking briefcase bag with the ensemble. To make my day even better, two amazing things happened:

1. I got snapped by almost 12 street style photographers which was absolutely AMAZING! That was my first time experiencing street style, and it was the best experience of my life. If you see me on any blogs/websites, please let me know as I would love to see who the people taking pictures were/ where my photos are posted.

2. I met Natalie from Natalie Off Duty and Bonnie from Flashes of Style! I was standing in front of both of them for almost 5 minutes and then I tweeted about how freaked I was but knew I had to say hello! They were both super nice and genuinely chic people, of course! Also spotted: Man Repeller (AH!), Maria Menounos, Dani Stahl, Marie Claire accessories director, Jessica White, Erica Dasher from the new ABC Family design show, Giada De Laurentiis and tons more! 

Overall, my day was simply incredible. I'm back on Saturday for round 2, and I can't wait!! 

P.S. More in depth posts of the shows are coming up this week. I got home pretty late and I am so excited and happy about my day I can't even keep my fingers in control of everything I want to say hehe! 

P.P.S. If any of you are in the city Saturday for Fashion Week I would love to meet you! Just leave a comment on this post/tweet or email me!

  15. Okay, I admit it: I was totally stalking your tweets when you were at BCBG's show at NYFW. You are SO LUCKY!! =) It looks like you had such a wonderful time... it must be a great experience to see a runway show in person, rather then by photors or YouTube (*ahem* me... hehe). I absolutely adore your outfit... the Free People cape is my favorite! No wonder you got snapped by 12 streetstyle photographers... =) That's amazing! I would have probably been starstruck and speechless if I met Natalie, Bonnie and of course.. Giada de Laurentiis (haha!)
