FEATURES, FASHION SHOWS AND BLOGGER PROBLEMS.

Updates and exciting news!


As hopefully many of you know, I intern at a fashion PR and communications firm called Bollare, and I was lucky enough to go to my first fashion show during NYFW! The designer's name is Ivana Helsinki.

I had to take photographs for the afterparty (people were packed in there like sardines in a can!) and I missed the entire show. But here are some shots that I took of a model during the runthrough and Ivana Helsinki's new flagship store in Nolita before the party.

Lusting after the neon chiffon shirts and the chambray polka dots, aren't you? Perfect for Spring!




And of course, my outfit for today, which was pretty damn monochromatic, I'm feeling completely sick and under the weather. Some people on Twitter are calling it the #fashionweekflu, whatever it may be. It's got me.

Today was all about layering, layering and more layering! (Isn't it always?)

BY THE WAY! My smart ass stepped on a nail and it went right through my shoe and stabbed my foot. So these pictures right here? I was in complete pain, my foot bleeding into the napkin stuffed into my shoe, does it show? This is what we call hashtag blogger problems.

The ridiculous things I do...


Thrifted printed oversized sweater (similar here)
Thrifted DIY leather vest (similar here)
BCBG sheer sleeved cardigan (similar here)
Nylon pleather panel leggings (similar here)
Matiko studded loafers (buy here)
AA acid wash circle scarf (cheaper here)
Thrifted DIY leather satchel
H&M cage ring (similar here)
Yves Saint Laurent Adventurine ring

That was a mouthful. I should have warned you guys that this post was gonna be a long one.

I'm also thrilled to share with you guys my first blog feature from StyledOn over here! They've featured Julie Sarinana from SincerelyJules and Aimee Song from Song of Style, so to be featured among those huge inspirations of mine was humbling. Click on the link! You can read up on my fashion FAQ and my ramblings, as if you don't get enough already.

Photos are taken by Landon as always, who also acted as my nurse today.
