Kicking Off Fashion Week with Qream

Wednesday was the kick-off to fashion week and what a day it was!

The morning was spent at Milk Studios at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference admiring fabulous style and absorbing the social media convo and blogging advice. I bumped into fellow Cosmo blogger Katy of Sugarlaws and had lunch with some fashion bloggers that I've long admired so it was an exhilarating start to a jam-packed day.

From there, I headed uptown to meet Yakini from Style Me Prissy for a screening of "I Don't Know How She Does It," starring Sarah Jessica Parker (I know, rough day). More on the movie in a separate post because it was so cute and relatable that I have some thoughts to share.

As if that wasn't enough, we then headed back downtown for a girl's night out mani/pedi party sponsored by Qream, Pharrell Williams' new liqueur. Since everything in the universe is connected, it's funny to note that Cousin Kat and I bumped into Pharrell in an elevator at the studio we were filming The Nate Berkus Show in. He didn't mention the liqueur though, which is probably a good thing since we likely would have bailed on Nate.

At the salon, which is my regular go-to place, conveniently a few blocks from Chez Glamamom, fellow style bloggers and I were treated to yummy peach and strawberry Qream cocktails, Stella & Dot's latest collection, feather extensions, and of course, manis/pedis (which I was in desperate need of!).

Glamamom What I Wore

Don't know how I survived an entire day in the same outfit but I managed.  {J.Crew blazer, Old Navy cami, Club Monaco skirt, Myne belt from a dress, Tiffany bracelet, Chloe bag, shoes from a mall in Buenos Aires, necklace from a gift shop in San Diego.}

Needless to say, it was a glamorous start to fashion week and I can't wait to share more details. Yesterday, I was on the edge of my seat at Catherine Malandrino's Ready-to-Buy runway show and on the town for Fashion's Night Out. I'm headed to Lincoln Center this weekend and will be reporting as one of's editor's at large so stay tuned for lots of updates.

Have a glamorous weekend!
