New York Fashion Week...Day 5

Day 5 of Fashion Week was craziness! With last minute shows to attend and packing, I was able to squeeze in some time to visit Central Park. I wore a Forever21 black peplum top with these amazing BlankNYC  faux leather pants. The floral design went perfect with the landscape of Central Park, it really brought out the green in the pants. If you are on the petit side like myself try wearing skinny jeans with a nice fitted peplum top for an instant hour glass figure. I paired this outfit with my vintage black cross body bag that I bought while I was in Japan. To finish off the look I paired my Giuseppe Zanotti heels for some hight. 

As my journey to New York Fashion Week comes to an end I hope I was able to help inspire you. Although this was my last day in the city, I will be back! So for now it's not goodbye, it's until next time New York ;)

Day 4 of #NYFW on The Brooklyn Bridge

Day 4 of New York Fashion Week had to be one of my favorite days. I was a little exhausted from all the shows, so my friend Ryan (aka photographer) and I decided to take a day off and explore the city. Mind you both of us have been there plenty of times, but we thought we would soak up the beautiful sun and head to the Brooklyn Bridge and take some photos. With all the hustle and bustle of the Brooklyn Bridge it was quit hard to take pictures, but like always we made it work! I was wearing a gorgeous Charlotte Russe shift dress and since I was wearing black and white I added color with a pop of red with my Zara ankle strap heels. I actually wore booties to the bridge, so my feet wouldn't hurt. For there being so many people on the bridge the photos came out well. It was such a beautiful day to walk and think how amazing life really is when you take the time to admire it.

Day 3 of New York Fashion Week w/Mara Hoffman

Hey my internet has been down for about a week, hints why I haven't had the chance to post. I had to buy a new wireless router. Anyways...Luckily today it went back up. Yay!!! Day 3 of New York Fashion Week was a little less crazy, since I only had one show to attend which was Mara Hoffman and let me tell you! Her spring 2014 designs were simply fabulous!  

As for my outfit on day 3...I wanted to be very "Roxy & The City" so I paired another one of my most favorite pairs of  Giuseppe Zanotti booties with a black leather jacket from Urban Outfitters. What I really loved about this outfit was my Tulip Skirt found (Here and Here) it wasn't your typical "little black skirt" it's draping effect gave this skirt a fresh feel. Making it look more city chic appropriate. Gold accessories completed this look along with my Rebecca Minkoff leather tote.

Day 2 of New York Fashion Week!

As I was siting on the Terrance of  The Hudson Hotel I began to think how blessed I am to be sitting here for New York Fashion Week 2013. I always knew anything is possible if you just set your mind to it. Simply believing in yourself comes first, making it happen comes second. Day 2 of New York Fashion Week was one of my busiest days. I met with a few blogger friends for breakfast on the upper west side, had three shows pretty much back to back. Somewhere during that time I had to shoot for my blog and be at another blogger dinner by 9:00pm. I'm not one to wear things that are elegant, but I fell in love with this drop a line dress by Astr, so I paired it with a black leather jacket from KitsonLA and edgy ankle strap heels from Jimmy Choo to spice things up. Whats your style?

New York Fashion Week Day 1

Ever since I was a little girl I always dreamed of attending a huge Fashion Show with lights, cameras and models. I finally got to fulfill my dream by attending this years New York Fashion Week for Spring 2014. I never thought in a zillion years I would have the opportunity to attend this fabulous event. Even with all the excitement of the first day of Fashion Week I still made it my goal to film a "Get Ready With Me" video for my lovely viewers aka (you dolls). I know growing up we could only imagine attending this formal event, but I thought I would document everything I did on this trip to show you dolls anything is possible if you set your mind to it...My Story To Be Continued....Since I was filming most of Day 1 I missed my first show which was Nicholas K, but I was still able to get my hands on their post show press release and images (shown down below). As for my outfit I wanted to keep things pretty simple, but very city chic. This outfit got the most attention out of all five of my outfits.

My faux leather skirt was the focal point besides my shoes. You can find my Faux Leather Skater Skirt  Here and HereOf course no outfit is complete without a bag this Rebecca Minkoff mini was my essential for Fashion Week I never left my hotel without it. Even though it looks small I was able to fit my life in this bag, you can find it HereMost importantly my shoes caught every photographers eye. They have to be one of my most favorite pairs of Giuseppe Zanotti heels. They're so versatile and very eye catching (no longer available). Look out for more post of my be continued!!!

Travel Essentials

I've been traveling a lot lately for work and pleasure, so I thought I would show you a few of my most important "Travel Essentials". 1) For the obvious reason I carrie oil absorbing sheets on the daily especially when I travel. 2) My Canon Rebel T-3i is a must to capture blog post/outfits. 3) I like to have my passport with me even if I don't go out of the country, just in case I lose my i.d. for whatever reason. I need identification! 4) As for my laptop I like to have it with me on the plane at all times because I don't waste anytime, so I like to edit my videos while we're in flight. 5) Last but not least since I have a camera, laptop and my phone I have to make sure they're all charged at all times. Whether I'm in flight or waiting at the airport all these are essential to traveling for any blogger/youtuber. What are your traveling essentials?

My New Affordable Favorites

Happy Labor Day Dolls!!! I wanted to take the time and show you a few of my favorite pieces I just added to my closet. I will be taking these items with me to New York Fashion Week 2013, so I wanted to share these favorites with you. Fall has always been known for hats, scarves, and lots of layers to keep warm. This fall season I wanted to find a hat I can wear all the time, and since I love black & gold this hat from Target that you can find Here and Here matched what I was looking for. The black & gold chain makes this hat elegant and very Chanel inspired. Pair this with a fitted blazer and your outfit will scream chic! 

I also wanted to pick up some booties to walk around the city with, so when I found these bad boys from Charlotte Russe I admittedly thought of the Chloe booties. These Chloe inspired studded triple buckle booties you can find Here and Here are so comfortable and will make any outfit stand out. What are some of your favorite pieces for fall?
