The past week has been a blur of fashion shows, high heels, brunches, meetings, hailing taxis, catching subways, new friends, old friends, Lincoln Center, parties, not so much sleep…well you know it’s been New York Fashion Week.
Em and I had such a wonderful time in February. We both were exhausted by the end of it, but got to experience some beautiful moments, and met some of our biggest fashion inspirations (and we totally geeked out about it!)
It was such a different experience going without Em this time, but she had to hold down the fort in San Fran (someone’s gotta do it!), and it was also another thing entirely to be apart of NYFW as a NYC resident!
My hope entering into the tornado that can be Fashion Week was to stay grounded, have meaningful conversations with new friends, and be inspired. Finding stillness in the chaos is ever my quest!
I think my goal was accomplished. Enjoy some of my favorite NYFW moments from the last week that I photographed!
Sunday was all about Trina: the Trina Turk Spring 2014 collection. This collection made me want to jump right over winter and just get back into spring. The bright colors and light hearted feel to this collection was a breath of fresh air!
They even did a live editorial shoot during the presentation! So fun!
Monday Beth and I ran around town all day for different meetings! First stop Jennifer at Pink Cloud Vintage. Umm…I died when I saw this vintage Chanel purse. I neeeeeeeeed.
Beth tried on some rad dresses!
Beth with Pink Cloud owner Jennifer who may be the cutest prego ever.
Did I mention we went to the Coach offices, and got to go through the Coach Archives? This was a preppy city girls’ dream (uummm…ya I’m talking about myself in third person).
Monday ended with the Alice and Olivia Spring 2014 presentation. This was by far my favorite collection this fall. The attention to detail was so beautiful, and I just cannot get over the silhouettes, the mixed textures and patterns. Ahhh…just so much yumminess!
These three ladies together were my favorite grouping of looks.
When I saw this bedazzled crop cardigan with boyfriend jeans all I could think of was how me this outfit was. I mean honestly guys…I need it.
The below mint leather pleated skirt + denim jacket look is my favorite outfit from this collection; it’s super wearable and totally ME!
Oh ya… and then Dan Humphrey’s sister showed up (holla Gossip Girl fans…xoxo, Gossip Girl)
Until February…goodbye Fashion Week.
Our travails at Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week have come to an end for now, and I can honestly say this has been my most favorite Fashion Week experience. Maybe it was because I was with my partner in Crime (Em), maybe it was that we got to attend shows of some of our favorite designers (Billy Reid, Trina Turk + JCrew), but I think a big part of it was all the new + old friends we got to meet and play with in the city!
We worked our little tails off, but we also played our little tails off as well. I really do think NYC is the city that doesn’t sleep, or maybe it’s the city that I never sleep in…
Either way, enjoy our last Refined at Fashion Week post with some of our favorite Behind the Scenes and Street Style that we photographed!
A little dance party after the Billy Reid Show last Friday night…
Sweet Heather who let us stay with her in Union Square, and was our official photog after Billy Reid when we had our lil dance par-tay.
Late night in Union Square after drinks at The Ace Hotel. Nemo couldn’t keep us out!
Bristish Blogger Ella Catliff looked poised + polished as usual!
Did I run after the GQ Men so I could snap their pictures? I don’t…maybe!? I mean come on how handsome are they? And I adore Justin Doss’ white denim in February (and his smile too).
Miss Alicia of Cheetah is the New Black
Shea of Cheyenne Meets Chanel with Mateo her beau.
In the midst of Nemo, Anna of In Honor of Design and I grabbed some photos in Union Square and a yummy coffee at Joe’s. She might be one of the cutest southern gals I’ve met!
Finally Miss Lauren Scruggs (a dear friend from Dallas) with Shannon Yoachum. The Texas ladies were representing at NYFW this season!
Well friends, that’s all for New York Fashion Week this season; it was unbelievable, we loved every second of it, and feel so blessed to have gotten to meet such lovely people, go to fabulous shows, and prance around the city as The Refined Woman!
