With the kick of New York Fashion week just over a month away (yippie!) and tentative schedules released, (see story here http://www.fashionweekdaily.com/the-fix/article/nyfw-ss-2012-schedule-scoop-part-1-lincoln-center-lineup) I thought it would be a good idea to post some essentials for surviving (conquering) whatever events you attend.
My favorite NYFW essentials:
A Structured Bag
Pick a black one. It’ll go with everything.
(Dolce & Gabbana Structured Python Shoulder Bag available @ NET-A-PORTER.com, $3,795.)
This Seasons IT heels
This color will be HUGE this fall. Save your allowance kids, this shoe is worth it.
(Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Leather Pumps available @ NET-A-PORTER.com, $795.00)
A Great Blazer
A good blazer goes with everything – metallic dresses, tapered pants, mini skirts, shorts, heels, flats, you name it!
(Theory Black Stretch Wool Lyzbeth Two Button Blazer available @ Bluefly.com, $345.00)
Something Vintage and Fabulous
One word. Sequins.
(Oleg Cassini Sequined Cocktail Dress available @ VintageCouture.com, $900.00)
(a back up battery for your
Blackberry or iPhone)
Remember – honor the designer and dress according to the essence of their style but don’t forget yours. If you can’t afford brand new pieces go vintage. It’s an awesome way to pay homage and not bankrupt you in the process.
