Fashion Week - Finally!

Monday, October 3, 2011

I'm finally putting up a post about my fashion week adventures in NYC!  Besides lots of fun shopping, eating, and spending time with my sister and her roommates here are some of the highlights.  On Thursday night we went to Joe's Jeans in SoHo for Fashion's Night Out.  The streets were so crowded with people it kind of reminded me of being on Burbon Street (I guess because it was so packed - oh and maybe the ridiculous amount of overly drunk people at 9pm).  I usually tend to buy either Paige, J Brand, or Citizens, but after standing by the colored denim wall at Joe's Jeans I think I now want just about every color they have!

We went to see Vanity Fair's Fashion in Film presentation of X, Y, and Zee (with Michael Caine and Elizabeth Taylor) at the Museum of Arts and Design on Saturday.  The movie was a little crazy, but Elizabeth Taylor's outfits were tons of fun!  Has anyone else seen this movie?

The Lela Rose show was on Sunday morning.  Seeing how we don't get too many fashion shows here in Virginia - this was my first one.  It was amazing!  While playing my sister's shadow before the show I got to look at all the outfits hanging backstage ready for the models to wear.  It was great to meet all the people she works with too.  Everyone was so friendly and welcoming - which I've got to say was pretty impressive since I imagine fashion week (especially the morning of their show) is not the calmest, low-stress time.

On a side note - I have got to get back on some sort of blogging schedule!  Since I got out of the habit I'm having the hardest time getting regular posts up and I really miss blogging when I don't get a chance to do it.  Does anyone have any good tips for a blogging schedule or keeping up with posting regularly?


  1. Oh how fabulous! Sounds like an amazing experience.

  2. What fun! I'd love a pair of colored jeans, but can't decide if I'd wear them more than once or twice. ;)

  3. What I wouldn't give to have a sister who worked in fashion!? So jealous! We had Lela Rose bridesmaid dresses ;) I have been dying for a pair of cobalt jeans...I'm sure if I had a few beverages and went shopping, I probably would have come home with the whole wall! haha.

    As for a blogging schedule?! My best advice is to think through your posts a week in advance, rather than waiting until the day of. Schedule them if you can. Joining in a few link-ups can also help you get moving ;)

    Hope you have a great night! So happy to have stumbled on your blog! xoxo {av} | {long distance loving}
