#NYFW: The Olive Trench Dress

Happy Thursday, loves! Officially the kick-off of NYFW events & presentations for me! A day completely packed with events, running from show to show...
This is the first year that I'd really count myself participating in New York Fashion Week! I didn't get the chance last year because I was abroad in London (although I DID get to help out at London Fashion Week--read more here), and then ended up too busy recruiting last spring to really reach out and attend any NYFW events. A little late to the game, but better late than never right?

Fully packed day, running from shows, to classes, to even more shows! I decided it was a good time to ditch the heels and go for my favorite pair of flats. I don't think I would have been able to make it across the cobblestone streets otherwise! 
Sidenote: why is it that all these designer presentations have changed venue locations and are no longer showing at Lincoln Center? I've been looking forward to the "Mercedes Benz Fashion Week" experience at Lincoln Center, but now I guess it isn't the sole venue anymore. 


Coffee break in between events! Fueling up for the rest of the night for events in the evening! So excited to be invited back to the Lulu's Style Studio Blogger event! I had the pleasure of attending last spring and it was an absolute blast! Here's a recap of what went down last time and I can't wait to share my experience of it with you guys again!


Many of the presentations are on the west side this year--Pier 59 seems to be a popular spot! Taking advantage of the scenery on the High Line, and enjoying just a little breath of fresh air before diving back into the craziness that is NYFW!
Hope you guys follow along my adventures at fashion week--for the inside scoop on the venues & collections, check out my Instagram! I'll be posting a lot more frequently between shows before doing final recaps on the blog! Happy fashion week fashionistas,
