I was checking out the scene at Fashion Week Day 1 at the Lincoln Center, and this photographer asked to take my photo. Afterwards, a friend on FB told me my photo was featured in an article titled The 21 Most Stylish People From Day 1 of Fashion Week! I was pretty excited and I guess you can say it was my few seconds of fashion fame : )
Went to Housing Works Thrift Shop in the West Village and they were clearing out their stock to make room for Fall inventory. To get rid of everything, they were selling all of their clothing for $1!!! I found some brand new sample items and outfits for family members. After I left the store, I think I was floating on Cloud 9...
The afternoon before Fashion Night Out, I went to eat at Peter Luger, out in Brooklyn with a couple girl friends. It was quite the dining experience, totally not what we had imagined it to be! A couple medium-rare porterhouses later, we were nicely satisfied. I decided to wear a thrifted leopard top with my favorite denim vest by Bongo, a vintage leather skirt and Jeffrey Campbell wedges
Went to Opening Ceremony's indoor French flea market at the Ace Hotel. The hotel lobby was decorated with illuminating string lights, booths upon booths, men dressed as Parisians handing out free moustaches and incentives for purchasing overpriced clothing and accessories. It was fun just to window shop and absorb the eye-candy all around me...I had never seen that many trendsters in one setting in my life.
Waited in line at Madewell to meet Alexa Chung, a beauty with a charming personality.
With Phillip Lim, outside his store during FNO.
Bumped into Pamela Love, jewelry designer, while waiting in line for the Opening Ceremony event. Fashion Night Out felt like Trick-or-Treating for fashionistas, and by the end of the night, my feet were throbbing from prancing around town, but the pain was dulled by my fashion sugar high.
