As the snow had mostly melted on Day 3, I lightened my layers and slipped on my studded leather loafers and hit the streets. Since I booked my trip very last minute, I decided to only attend for the first 5 days of New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Even now, I feel incredibly grateful to even have the opportunity to attend. If I can give you any piece of advice, it’s to go after everything you want, have no regrets but always remain humble. Celebrate your achievements, but remember that there’s always room for improvements and growth.
By Day 3, I got into the habit of surviving off double to triple shot lattes, which always saves the day. Lucky for me Yuna Yang was showing off-site and it was right next to Doughnut Plant, which I had visited with Tom on our first trip together to New York. Inside, I was jumping for joy. I’m sorry, Fashion Week diet? What diet?
One of my favourite things about Fashion Month would probably be seeing what everyone is wearing in person. Street Style is always one of my favourite things about Fashion Week because you get to see so many great outfits in such great volume in person.
For my look of the day, I took on a flirtier take on a preppy look by layering a red crop top over an asymmetrical long shirt dress and navy ankle trousers. For jewelry, I wore layered rings and earrings. I originally went hunting for these amazing Dior pearl earrings, but when I went to Paris, I couldn’t find them. Instead, I found these Dior-inspired ones for a tiny fraction of the price. My Valentino B-Rockstud Striped bag exaggerated the lines from the plaid pattern of this fantastic caramel colored coat I got from Storets. For some modern edge, I finished the look with a studded loafer shoes.
