I wore this last Tuesday while in New York at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
The night before I had noticed a few tiny flakes swirling down as I made my way back to my hotel. When I woke up Tuesday morning, outside it looked like this:
I began to be very sorry I had not brought my travel umbrella as the falling snow got heavier – and wetter- as the day went on. I spent 30 minutes curling my hair into a big Dallas-esque poof in the morning – and it went completely flat within an hour of being outside.
My feet were also soaked in their GoJane suede boots. (The only water-resistant shoes I had had a 4″ heel and my feet were aching so badly from the previous day’s city-trekking that I nixxed them in favor of flats.)
That day I took some photos of fashionable people in the tents, watched the Pamella Roland show
(I was third row – almost directly behind Brooke Shields!), shopped at STEPS boutique
, met a friend for a late lunch at Chef Yu, headed out to the Lower East side, poked in some boutiques (including Cloak & Dagger and AlphabetsNYC
), went to the Samantha Pleet show and interviewed the designer, then back to the tents at Bryant Park for the Toni Francesc show
Sorry for the bad pictured – camera troubles abounded, and eventually I was just using my Blackberry to snap photos.
I had a big piece of hair sticking out the left side of my head – why doesn’t anyone tell me these things before we take a photo????
I’m also experimenting with a matte nude lip – M.A.C. makes the best nude lipstick ever (exactly the same shade as my skin!!) called Myth
Well- at least I was warm (except for my feet) & comfortable! I barely took off my coat the entire day.

Love this outfit! You look so chic. 🙂 You're so lucky you got to attend fashion week!! And sit behind Brooke Shields?! Omg. Awesomeness! I die. Seriously. That's just amazing.
And that illustration you did a couple posts below is incredible. You are super talented! xoxo
I love the necklace and bustier and hope you will to a DIY tutorial on them.
I love the outfit overall except for the gray over the knee leggings…I am sure it helped with keeping you warm, but it just seems chop you up visually and is distracting when the focus should showcase your awesome DIYs and fabulous eye for detail on them.
Aw! You look cute! I'd love to see better photos of the DIY bustier! And, I know that other poster didn't care for the leggings and stuff, but I liked it. People have been doing a really crappy job with the shorts/tights thing since it became mainstream this season, but I like how you chose to do it. It's not all early 90s or trashy. It's cute. (When I was in Chicago, all I saw were girls with daisy dukes and lacey tights- skank central!! ee!! haha) And, I like the layered socks with tall boots. cute ^__^
