Day 8 NYFW: Papergirl

Hi darlings,

Today is the last day of New York Fashion Week which I’m super sad about and thanking God for at the same time because Lord knows I’m drained. Lol! However, I challenged myself in my attire today, tried something totally outside of my comfort zone. My look was inspired by my Papa as the hat belonged to him. I really didn’t know how I was going to put it together creatively and struggled to bring it to life this morning! But, I found my confidence in this look and decided to rock it out. Hopefully, you’re inspired 😉

Attire: Hat – Belonged to my grandfather
Coat – Calvin Klein
Blouse – H&M
Vest – Urban Behavior
Skirt – Byron Lars Beauty Mark
Scarf – Byron Lars Beauty Mark
Glove – Aldo
Silver Bracelet – Forever21
Shoes – Target


Day 5: NYFW Recap

Hi darlings!

Yesterday was a VERY long day for me as Fashion Week consumed majority of my day which is a GREAT thing since I love it so much. Just being in the atmosphere, gets my blood pumping and adrenaline spiking throughout my body. It’s a wonderful time and wonderful place – I pray that each of you get the opportunity to attend at some point. But, for now, you can follow through my eyes!

Attending shows with my fashion twin is a BLAST! We are literally seeing our dreams manifest! You can also check out her blog at 🙂

Backstage Access! Hanging out with the makeup artists, models, press, and others before the show! LOTS of action!

I love chatting with my fellow models! She is such a beauty both inside and out, getting ready before she hit the runway!

The Model Lineup! This chart visually shows what each model is wearing and the order that they come out onto the runway. EVERY designer has a model lineup board behind the stage so everyone can be on one accord and the presentation may go smoothly…..

This is what the scene looks like under the tent right before the presentation begins with the designer’s name. I attended Taoray Wang’s F/W ’15 (you might remember her from my review of last season’s presentation) which was absolutely stunning. I will do a separate post with video clips and exclusive pictures from her runway presentation, so stay tuned!

While there, I met my identical fashion twin! Our looks were SO similar, I just HAD to take a pic!

Be inspired 😉
