New York Fashion Week Diary Day 1: Wearing Alice Yim

The first day of Fashion Week is like the first day of school for me. The same principles apply, ie: finding the perfect first day outfit, seeing old fashion friends again and learning new trends. The start of a fashion season is always an exciting time to see what hot new styles will grace the stores in the coming months. 

I wanted my first day outfit to be bright and Summery so I wore Alice Yim's high-waisted red silk shorts and her short-sleeved top with a Dragonfly printed charmeuse front and a chiffon back. Alice seamlessly combines a minimalist, classic, feminine and edgy approach to her looks. 

I paired the look with white Pucci sunglasses, Josie Natori golden earrings and beige pumps by Jessica Simpson. It’s always a challenge to find heels that are at least 5 inches which is one of the reasons I really love Jessica’s shoe line.

My schedule of first day shows included: Tadashi Shoji, Desigual and The Art Institute of New York City. In between shows I hung out in the press only Samsung GALAXY sky-box with my good friend and fellow fashion blogger, Martha from You can always expect Martha to wear the most thoughtfully styled looks like the above black romper that she effortlessly paired with a matching statement necklace and silver heels. 

The Samsung GALAXY sky-box was the perfect place to people watch. You could see all of the action happening on the ground level like the flurry of high-heeled editors, colorful bloggers, stylists and buyers schmoozing or running to their respective fashion shows. 

The silver Mercedes-Benz was the center of attention as you couldn't help but admire its pristine beauty and luxury. I could just image driving this baby down the country roads of the Hamptons to a Great Gatsby themed party.  

It was definitely a fabulous first day of New York Fashion Week. I can't wait to share all of the fun stories and latest fashion trends from the runways in the coming posts!
