Fashion Week is always a whirlwind, from the point I start packing until I’m finally finished unpacking. I try to fit as many shows and events into every day as possible to get a glimpse of all the beautiful designer collections. Plus it’s fun to meet up with great friends I’ve made through the fashion industry and catch up over coffee or good food. Needless to say, I always get back to my hotel room exhausted and excited for the next day. This year they changed up the venue so the shows were spread out through the city. I actually liked it better than previous years because everyone wasn’t so crowded in one place and you got to see different parts of the city, but it definitely meant a lot more walking and traveling. It was a daily adventure getting to each show because the shows run back-to-back on the hour so you have to hustle across town to make it to the next event. Throw in the fact that you’re changing outfits two to three times a day and trying to share a live feed so everyone can see the beautiful shows – and it gets chaotic. My phone was dead by like noon everyday (thank goodness for portable charger packs!)
I wore this look for the Nicole Miller show on Friday night. Maxi dresses are so low maintenance that they are always one of my top picks when I am running around. It’s easy to add to it with simple elements like a blazer and belt, and then all you need is a statement bag (in love!) to take it to the next level.
If I have learned anything about dressing for Fashion Week it’s that you can’t wear your 5 inch heels all day! I am always either hiding a comfortable pair of flats in my bag (these have cushion support in the sole I wore these everywhere! Love the leopard version too!) or wearing a low kitten heel so my feet aren’t crazy sore by the end of the day. Shoes shouldn’t slow you down, even if they are heels. 😛 This burgundy Rockport pair has tons of cushioning – they were super comfortable.
