As most of you know, I just returned from New York Fashion Week and all I can really say is “what a crazy experience!”
It was very surreal to be there. Sitting at the Skylight, watching real models walk down the runway in some amazing designer pieces has always been a HUGE dream of mine. There really is no way to explain the feeling of actually being at a real runway show….let’s just say I teared up a few times! Not only were the shows fun, but watching the fashion week street style was one of my favorite experiences.
At New York Fashion Week, anything goes.
And I mean ANYTHING.
Velvet jumpsuits. Huge 70’s flare jeans. Mismatched heels. You name it. It’s there.
There were a couple of times when I looked at what I was wearing and thought “Does this even go well together?!” And then you think to yourself…..it’s NYFW…..ANYTHING goes!
There is a great sense of fashion relief as you know that no one will be staring at you and thinking “what the heck is she wearing!” Because honestly, everyone is wearing bizarre, hip, funky fashion.
I went simple, chic & classic for my NYFW looks this year…..some items over $100, some items under $30. I thought I would do a little outfit recap for you on here with sizing details, links to shop and similar style options since you all gave me the best feedback about my looks via Instagram. (You guys are legit the best…..THANK YOU!)
