Hey Guys! So most of you know that I was in NYC for Fashion Week- I'm working on editing all of my video footage, but for today I thought I would show you some of my trip through Instagram pictures I took through out the week :)
Helloooo, New York! Here's the view from my hotel room :) If you'd like to see a full tour of my home away from home, click here to watch the video I posted!
Besides just staying at the W hotel, I had the pleasure of working with them for Fashion Next 2012- a series of fashion presentations highlighting up and coming designers with incredible work.
My pass! So official with it. Really, I'm just proud of myself for not losing it.
I couldn't make it to the first designer [Bibhu Mohapatra] because I was actually IN a runway show at the same time [polyvore live! thank you to all who watched!] but I managed to catch a few pictures at the other presentations- including some of my favorite looks! First up? Haus Alkire!
Who would have thought that my favorite look would be this comfortable, all-black ensemble? This is SO me! I especially loved the choice of the heeled black ankle boots. And, in case you were wondering- YES! It does feel mildly awkward walking up and taking pictures of them from 5 inches away- but you get over it after the first presentation :)
Kelly and I at the Haus Alkire presentation. If you're my viewer primarily through Youtube, or by some chance haven't seen her blog yet, you will LOVE her! She has amazing style, beautiful photos && is incredibly sweet.
Next up? Rochambeau! This presentation had amazing menswear- and men..
One of my favorite looks. I guess he's kind of okay too.
After the Rochambeau presentation, it was time for the Nanette Lepore show! Outside of the show there were a series of handbags displayed with this motto- I love it! No photos from the show, but I DID take video of my favorite looks- those will be posted soon!
The fourth designer in Fashion Next was Suzanne Rae- I loved the dresses in her collection, especially the feminine fabrics and high low hemlines.
Here's the outfit I wore for day 2 of Fashion Next/the 14th of NYFW. I have this outfit shown in this video if you'd like to see more of it! Luckily, this picture was taken before the demise of my sheer tights. My bracelets unfortunately snagged && murdered two pairs of tights before the end of the day! 'I will never be the girl who can wear white and not spill on it...'
The last presentation of Fashion Next was by Nomia. All of the looks featured black socks paired with black patent heels- would you wear this look? I personally LOVE socks with heels. Nomia's look was a softer take on the silhouette of an often edgier ankle boot. I liked it!
Models final walk at Nomia- and of Fashion Next 2012! The presentations were amazing, && I had such a fun time working with W hotels on it! I'm already missing my second home [and the amazing chocolate croissants- seriously, if you stay at the W in Times Square, you have to get one!]
Did you like any of the looks? Have you seen any new trends or styles you like for fall 2012? Let me know in the comments! Can't wait to finishing editing the video footage from my trip!
