Asymmetrical plaid and mis-matched sneakers

Plaid is a huge trend this fall 2019 season, so I knew it was something I wanted to rock at New York Fashion Week. I didn’t want to do wear a menswear look, or attempt to wear plaid pants; which make me look fat-let’s just admit it. So, when I spotted this comfortable yet very plaid dress, I knew it was the perfect way to rock the plaid trend without adding girth to my frame.

This dress turned out to be so comfortable! The top is a cotton blend which is soft and breathable; perfect for New York’s humidity. I loved the layered plaid fabric, and pretend arm tie around the waist. I decided to give it some fashion week, street style edge, by pairing the dress with sneakers. Now, this is fashion week, so I wasn’t going to pair it with my cardio kickboxing sneakers, oh no, these sneakers had to be fashion week appropriate. Enter Gucci. . .

So when I spotted this pair of fall 2019 Gucci sneakers, I knew they would be my workhorse shoe of fashion week. It’s always good to have fashionable, yet comfortable, shoes on hand for busy days of running to shows. These sneakers encompassed two fall 2019 shoe trends; lug platforms, and mis-matched. Yes, you read that right, mis-matched.

There is a huge trend right now to wear mis-matched shoes. People around the globe are wearing the same shoe, in two different colors. I am not sure if they come like that, or if people are buying the same shoe in two colors; nevertheless, mis-matched feet were everywhere on the streets of New York Fashion Week. My version of the trend was a bit more, shall we say, understated?

These Gucci sneakers had one green back, and one red back. That’s all. Nothing crazy. Just a tiny touch of a crazy trend. I don’t think anyone who saw my shoes even noticed the backs were different. Haha

I wore these sneakers almost every day. They were really comfy, and kept my feet happy throughout fashion week. Love that!

Stay tuned to seeing more of this dress as fall progresses. I plan to pair with boots and a jacket. It’s my favorite dress of the season!

Vintage inspired with Chico’s at New York Fashion Week

One of the big trends I noticed on the spring 2020 runways was vintage inspiration from the 50’s, 60’s, and 90’s. Although we have barely touched the fall season, it is always fun to see which trends will reach well into the next year; and vintage inspiration is one of them!

When I spotted this mixed print, polka dot skirt at Chico’s for the fall season, I knew I needed I build a vintage inspired look around it. Chico’s has a fabulous selection of print scarves for fall, so I thought a contrasting print neckerchief tied 90’s style would do the trick. After all, 90210 has been revived, so aren’t we all feeling a little nostalgic for the 90’s?

I’m a sucker for a good black top which can pair with anything in my closet, so this understated black twist top looked perfect for tying the look together. I love how it looks amazing with this skirt, and also with jeans and sneakers. It’s definitely going to be my go-to black top this fall!

Now, isn’t fashion week all about pushing the limits of style? Of course! So I had to snap up these fun black and white sunglasses from Chico’s too. They added the perfect amount of pizzazz to my New York Fashion Week look. This was so much fun to wear to the runways! I loved mixing vintage inspiration from multiple decades, it’s a fun look.

I also wore this scarf around my ponytail with another outfit during the week, and the sunglasses were worn with every outfit except one. Chico’s has such great mix-and-match  pieces, they are great for travel and building a wardrobe in general. Be sure to check out everything new for fall at Chico’s!

Wearing Rebecca Minkoff to Rebecca Minkoff

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.

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
