This season, fashion week started on the third day for me. My kids have a busy schedule this semester, so I needed to wrap up a few things before heading to New York. On my day one of New York Fashion Week, the third show I went to was the Rebecca Minkoff presentation. Earlier in the day I attended Taoray Wang, and Son Jung Wan. later that day, I attended Chiari Boni le petite robe, and Chromat.

It’s always fun to wear the designer’s clothing to their show. Since I am a huge Rebecca Minkoff fan, and love snapping up a few of her pieces each season, I couldn’t resist wearing Rebecca Minkoff, to Rebecca Minkoff! Haha

Turned out, I wasn’t the only one with that idea, and many guests chose items in the same fabric as I. Needless to say, a ton of us were twinning at the presentation! In addition, since Rebecca Minkoff’s shows are “See now, buy now,” this was a fall 2019 presentation, not spring 2020 like the other shows I attended.

Myself and The New York Stylist -obsessed with her feathers! (Please excuse the horrible lighting, this was taken before another show at Spring Studios)

So, can you guess what happened next? Not only were a bunch of guests wearing this fabric, so were the models in the presentation! I now know this print comes in green, ivory, and burgundy in addition to the ice blue. There is also a dress, and a jacket; who knew?!

The collection was fabulous as always. Rebecca Minkoff was showing plenty of amazing handbags in her presentation; many of which feature the season’s hottest trends in handbags such as, snakeskin and cylinder shapes. There were plenty of fabulous outfits too, which are great for everyday wear. You can check out her entire fall collection online here.

I attended the show with a few of my favorite bloggers from the San Francisco Bay Area, Lizzie in Lace, Kat Walk SF, Kim Nair (not pictured-arrived after photo taken), and Fashion Should Be Fun.  We enjoyed a sit-down lunch at Pier 59 before entering the presentation. It was fun to meet up with everyone, and enjoy a delicious meal! Eating a meal during fashion week is a rarity, so this was quite a treat!

I’m looking forward to re-wearing this Rebecca Minkoff top with jeans and other bottoms back home, as well as mixing this black skirt with other tops in my closet; and sweaters when the temperatures cool down. Plus, this is a great outfit to wear altogether too!

In case you didn’t notice, I started in the high heel booties, then switched to sneakers. We do a ton of walking and standing at fashion week, so an alternate shoe, such as sneakers, is a must! I like how it looks both ways, but the booties are definitely the better choice! Haha

Heading to New York Fashion Week for the spring 2020 collections

travel outfit ideas fall

travel outfit details: pearl earrings / sunglasses / black 3/4 sleeve tee / Chloe bag / jeans / nail polish / cowgirl boots (so comfy!!) /

I’m heading to New York for fashion week! Normally I travel on Wednesday so that I am there for the Thursday shows, but this season, the schedule was a little thrown off. First off, I originally booked my trip to be my usual Wednesday-Sunday. Then, the CFDA put out a press release stating that NYFW would be Friday evening through Wednesday. I was like-whaaaaat??? So, I called my airline and moved my flight to Friday through Tuesday. The ticket turned out to be a lot less expensive and I ended up with a $248 credit. Yee-haw!

Well. . .early August rolled around and the production arm of fashion week posted the New York Fashion Week schedule online. Guess what?! It had shows from Thursday through Wednesday. Um, what??? Sooooooo. . . .I changed my flight for nothing! At this point, I already had my trip planned, and I had help arranged for my kids while I would be gone, so Friday through Tuesday I would travel!

Having a different schedule this time around is actually going to be fun. While I am missing a few shows I normally attend on Thursday and Friday such as Tadashi, and Laurence & Chico, I have the opportunity to attend some designer runways I haven’t seen before. This will be a ton of fun, and I will be able to bring some new designers to you! Yay! Everything happens for a reason, right?!

I’m flying out Friday morning, and I will attend one late show Friday night; barring any flight delays. Be sure to follow along on Instagram to see my Insta-stories which will be filled with everything NYFW!

Thanks for following along, and see you in New York!

Vitabrid C12 masks review

Masks c/o Vitabrid C12: Vitabrid  C12 Dual Mask age-defying and firming / Vitabrid C12 Dual Mask brightening luminous facial mask /

It’s always nice to find a new mask! When Vitabrid C12 asked if they could send me a couple of their facial masks to test out, I jumped at the chance to find a new mask which could firm my skin while leaving it soft and moisturized.

I tested out both the age-defying mask and the brightening mask. They were both fabulous! I love the  relaxing feeling of using a mask while knowing it is working hard to help my skin. The age-defying mask helped firm up my skin and left it soft, and smooth. The brightening mask perked up my tired skin and also left it smooth, and soft. Love them both!

Vitabrid C12 products harness the power of Vitamin C to help nourish and improve skin. I love how soft my skin remains several days after using the mask! I definitely want to try some of their products too.

Thanks for stopping by!
