September 27, 2017

Fashion month is such an exciting time. It's like the fashion world's Christmas that comes twice a year. Although it's an exhausting and demanding time of year ( I barely slept when I worked 5 shows... during the blizzard in February 2017), you can't help but be consumed by inspiration once you watch a runway show. A lot of people underestimate the power of fashion. For me, it really does help me express myself. And when I'm wearing an outfit I feel confident in, I feel powerful.

This season, I sat New York Fashion Week out, and although part of me was sad not to see a few amazing collections in person; I was also relieved to not have to deal with the complete insanity that comes with being on the PR side of NYFW. From running the shows, mapping out the perfect seating chart, handling pre-show, during-show and post-show press interviews and pitches, being the point person for celebrities, media, bloggers and influencers at the show, coordinating check-in, meeting the designer's demands and catering to anything and everything that can and will go wrong, the PR side of Fashion Week is not a joke. That's why I was ok with sitting on the sidelines this season and watching livestreams of some of my favorite designers. So today, I'm sharing 2 inspired fall looks from 2 Spring 2018 collections shown during NYFW and LFW (London Fashion Week), because we shouldn't have to wait until March to start rocking some of these beautiful Trends.

New York Fashion Week
Alice and Olivia: Be Bold

If there's one word that came to mind when I saw this collection; it's boldness. I loved the loud colors and mixed prints throughout the preview! My favorite piece in the collection is this beautiful snake-skin print jacket! I'm already imagining the beautiful ways I could wear a jacket like this in the spring and fall! Dear lord, I think I need it now. But, in an effort to be responsible, if you’re going to invest in a trend, you should get the most use out of the items. A snake skin print jacket is a very loud statement piece, but snake skin print booties… well those go with everything and are the perfect addition to any bland outfit. Are you in a rush but want to look cute with very little effort? Throw on a pair of these beautiful booties with a skirt and top, any simple dress or leggings and a comfy top. You look chic while staying comfortable and getting out the door in no time. Below are a few booties I have my eye on. I recently picked up a pair of dark snake skin print booties, but I have a feeling I’ll end up getting one of the lighter pairs below as well.

London Fashion Week
Fendi: School Girl Plaid 
One day I know I'll get to attend LFW, but until then, I'll just be here stalking the shows on and The Fendi collection really stood out to me. There were a lot of stripes and plaid. And. I. Loved. It! Honestly, I can never get enough plaid, and this fall, I really just want to look like I belong in the movie Clueless. Judge me if you want, but the 90s revival is still in full swing.  Over the summer, I purchased a cute plaid, tweed mini skirt from Zara. I've been waiting for it to actually feel like fall so I can finally wear the skirt, but after finding the skirts below, there's a 99.9% chance I'll be adding them to my closet. My wise friend Georgia once told me "don't underestimate the power of a classic plaid skirt." I could not agree with her more.
