Fashion Week outfit. Denim on denim.

And just like that, another Fashion Week came and went. I’ve been living in New York City for a little over two years now, and working in fashion ever since. As you know, Fashion Week happens twice a year (Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter), so this was my fifth Fashion Week. The first two seasons I spent working with a major fashion stylists styling the runway show of a major fashion house. That was a nightmare. I kept a fashion diary of what I did every day. You can find that here. Warning, this was written a long time ago, before the blog was what it is today. The Fashion Week right after I took street style photos, and I got to attend lots of fun events for fashion bloggers. Last season I also attended some events and off-site shows, but not as many as before, since there was a crazy snowstorm and like I said, I’ve only been living somewhere with snow for two years, so I have a hard time as it is walking on snow- there’s no way I could have moved one inch in four-inch heels. You can see some pics here.
Now THIS Fashion Week was like none I have ever attended before. You know how you need invites to get into the shows? Well, I had something a million times better- I had a press pass. I was free to come and go as I wished. I got to go backstage with the people from Yahoo (as you know I work with them sometimes, check me out in this video!), I saw tons of celebs but most importantly, I got to see, first hand, some of my fave designers’ fashion proposals for the upcoming season.
I want to tell you more about my experience, but this post is getting really long. I will tell you more about it this week. Now, let me tell you about the outfit. When I choose my jeans in the morning I always go for the skinny jeans, however, I happen to be a huge fan of retro 70s fashion, so I thought Fashion Week would be the perfect opportunity to take these puppies out for a spin. I originally planned on pairing them with a white blouse, but at the least minute I threw on this denim shirt. The result? I look like my mom, in the 70s. We took these pics at Lincoln Center, where the Fashion Week shows are held. We decided to go somewhere less crowded, away from all the fashion madness. You’ve already seen some pics at Lincoln Center here.
