Last week is a bit of a blur for me. I’m slowly but surely making my way through recaps of notable shows and events but I know as a reader fashion week coverage isn’t all that exciting, particularly when you’re itching to get into fall-wear. BUT, fashion week is a ton of fun as a participant and a great excuse for me to get together with friends and toast to “what’s next.” My darlings Kristin and Carly were both in town this season which was pretty much the highlight of my week.

More to come (more outfit posts too!) but this is what I wore one busy day (Sunday?) for backstage at Tracy Reese with Ouidad, Custo Barcelona, a visit to the P&G/Style Coalition lounge, the rewardStyle party atop the Empire Hotel, and dinner with the Glam Network at Morimoto. Phew. See, that’s why I wore flats! Have a glamorous week.

  1. I love all the amazing black and white combinations you wore during #NYFW so glad we got to play dress up together!

  2. You look GREAT! How fun to live in NYC and get to attend all those events. I got some of the invites, but it didn’t occur to me to go up and get a hotel and stay like Kristine. Now I’m planning for next spring . . . :-)

  3. Your dress is beautiful! And your hair is just gorgeous in these pictures – love it!
