New York Fashion Week started on September 10, 2016, and calling it a rainy day is an understatement! Torrential downpour might be a better way to describe the crazy weather!
After leaving 102 degrees behind in the San Francisco Bay Area, and arriving in New York to a cool 80-something, the rain was welcomed. The only challenging part was trying to make my way from show to show in the rain!
The logistics for fashion week are downright insane. I spent half the day in a cab or Uber car. There were a few moments when I found myself walking a little bit too much in the rain; and high heels. I was on my feet from roughly 8:30am to 10pm. It was a long day and my heels were as comfortable as high heels can be. Thank goodness for the chunky heel trend!
Day one of New York Fashion Week was a fun one! I saw Nicholas K, Leanne Marshall, Marissa Webb, Malan Breton, and Yuma Yang. Justin Nunez went to Desigual and photographed the show for me since it was at the same time as Marissa Webb. His photos are amazing, I cannot wait to share them with you!
Since it was a long day, wearing culottes and chunky heels was a comfortable yet city-chic way to get through the day. I felt dressed up yet un-fussy. I never thought I would wear culottes, and here I am! Yikes! I actually like them, is something wrong with me?
