So I had this whole plan about writing a rap about Fashion Week based on the lyrics of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song, but this is as far as I got…
So this is a story all about how
my life got flipped turned upside down….
I got a “job” fashion bloggin and my boss got busy,
She said, “You’re moving with the newbies to Lincoln Center, you hear!”
I whistled for a cab and when it came near,
The cabbie was fresh and he had ice in his ears
I thought “Hey it’s New York, this ain’t rare,
It’s Fashion Week baby and I’m front rowin’, yeah yeah!”
Could I be sent to Blogging prison for that? Eh, I’ll take my chances. I just wanted to do a quick bit but about some of the highlights of the week and some of the craziness I wore…There were a couple Rachel Zoe furry vest moments, and I would do them all again damnit!
- I got the chance to see some INCREDIBLE clothing, things that made me gasp: Christian Siriano, Nanette Lepore, Carolina Herrera, the Argentine Designers, Toni Francesc, Lulu Frost, Cushnie et Ochs and Jenny Packham are just some of the standout shows/presentations…
- I met June Ambrose. And she agreed to let me interview her. ‘Nuff said
- I saw, in the flesh, Stanley “Gird Your Loins” Tucci, Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley, Ms. Jay Alexander, Kelly Bensimon, Jessica Szohr, and in the Leah and Bliss VIP booth, Kristin Chenowith laughed at something I said and touched my arm.
- Tresemme and Maybelline were rocking my world with their daily giveaways, and I scored major Victoria’s Secret loot in their VIP suite, including a $50 gift card, undies, Intraceuticals facials, a manicure and back massage. And that doesn’t even compare to the loot my boss got from her attendance!
Then comes the outfits. On a couple of occasions, some photogs outside Lincoln Centre took my pic. Who knows if it was for the best or worst dressed list…
This was my first day and everything except my bag and earrings came from H&M. I admit, I have a problem.
I was having a Rachel Zoe moment. I think. The vest I got from an ex-BF for moving to Alaska, Fergie shoes. Not sure where the rest is from…
This was one of my fave looks and I never got a full length pic. H&M leopard dress, rabbit fur and wool vest (on loan from my good friend Kim Martin Cotten). Necklace from previously mentioned Accessory to the Fact, the store my friend Collie owns.
On the last day of Fashion Week, I decided to go out with a bang….this may have been on of those days Coco Chanel was talking about when she said take off one thing before you left the house, but I went wearing all of it anyway. Ah, running before I can walk…….Guess jacket and shoes, H&M shoes and tights, INC top.
And that is my fashion week wrap up. I CANNOT wait till spring! Keep reading till then.
