Since last Wednesday, I got a little glimpse of life as a fashion editor in NY. Here's me at the tents before my first in-person fashion show, Ports 1961. I'm wearing a fitted Max Studio black dress I got from Bloomingdales, black DYNY tights, Elisabeth and James pumps (wrote about those here), Marc Jacobs handbag, and a leather trench coat I got from The Limited 9 years ago. Before I dive in, a huge thank you to everyone at Coach for making the trip possible for me in the first place. It's going to take me another day to get my photos organized and uploaded so here's a few highlights of my trip. xoxo
Coach + Fashion's NIght Out: Coach invited a few select fashion bloggers to spend some time to get to know them as well as each other. In addition to a fantastic dinner the night before, we previewed their new fall collection, made our own DIY Coach clutch, took an exclusive tour of the Highline with the co-founder, and noshed on lunch at Pastis. That Thursday night was Fashion's Night out at the Coach store on Madison Ave where all of us got our totes illustrated by illustrator Kiersten Essenpreis. I had a design of a gal as a bunny shepard with bunches of bunnies at her feet. You can't go wrong with bunnies, I say. Looking forward to toting it around, especially at a future craft event.
I bought these aubrie boots at the Coach event to wear the next day since it was raining in NY. They totally held up in the rain! I know I'll be wearing these a lot here in SF. They are perfect for going casual with jeans or wearing with a dress and tights.
My first fashion show at the tents was for Ports 1961. Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere and I went together and met up with her friend (who I now absolutely adore), Melisa from the lil bee. We had standing tickets but we didn't care. Melisa is 8 months preggers so you'd think someone would have offered her a seat but in fashion, it's every one for themselves. I don't blame them. I took off my heels to stand. It was too much to bear already being in line with them on. It was fun to just be there and revel in the amazement of being inside the tents for a show. You could hear the camera shutters go off each time a model posed and stopped at the end of the runway for her close-up. Emily and I got snapped by the paparazzi outside so I had a woman photographer take a picture of us with my camera to document the wildly fun moment of us together.
