My Fashion Week Outfits Revealed

Dressing up for Fashion Week is one of the most exciting things to me and I take it very seriously. This season in particular I had to put my best shoe forward since for the first time I was representing myself and this blog. Seasons prior I had always written for someone else and this time it was thrilling to finally branch out on my own and be recognized as worthy press. I usually begin my wardrobe preparations a few weeks in advance but this time I started planning 4 months prior! I always like to find interesting pieces that bring out my personality which consists of classy mixed with unconventional.

The above dress I'm wearing is my favorite color, coral! Coral is such a vibrant color and it was perfect to wear during the warm September days. I had actually worn the dress once before when I taped All On The Line with Joe Zee, the creative director of Elle magazine. When I was on the Tyra Banks show few years ago a producer gave me the tip of always wearing something bright when you go on camera.

This dress was definitely one of the most fun dresses to wear. A fabulous designer called Chevelish was nice enough to let me borrow it. I'm a huge fan of unique pieces and I immediately fell in love with this dress the minute she sent me the preview. It's very Lady Gaga like no?
This cheetah print dress was another fun piece to wear. You can't really tell from the picture but it has an interesting fringe on the top. I paired it with my favorite brown floppy hat, aviator sunglasses and my knee high black boots.

I really liked the texture on this dress. I was going for the Barbie Doll look with bright pink lipstick, chunky costume jewelry and my favorite black wedges.

Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day? This was one of my favorite looks to style. I was going for the modern day take on a Victorian outfit. I first purchased the white shirt which reminded me of the monarchy since it had a high collar, accentuated shoulders and flowing bottom. I was originally trying to find red shorts to pair the shirt with but when I saw this red skirt I knew it would be the perfect match. The final touch was wearing my white Emilio Pucci sunglasses.
