I’m very excited to unfold a new feature on my blog: videos. I’m all about living in the moment, and videos capture them. I thought Fashion Week would be the perfect time to debut this feature because there is a huge difference between reading about a show and actually watching a show. From the hundreds of fashionistas, editors, celebrities, bloggers, and stylists sitting closely on benches to one another (upscale benches, not like Central Park ones) to the upbeat music and stunning runway looks, there is nothing like being at Fashion Week.
The first show I attended this season was Cynthia Rowley. I’ve always had a love for Rowley’s line, but I grew even more so to love it ever since I met her at a design conference last year. I wanted to wear an outfit that was fall-looking, but was light since it was so hot outside. I wore a Zara forest green and white poke-a-dot blouse with black tuxedo shorts, Calvin Klein black platform pumps, a vintage red, orange, and green stone necklace, a green cocktail ring with brown stones, and a black Balenciaga purse.
Cynthia’s front-row consisted of Ms. Jay Alexander and Nigel Barker from America’s Next Top Model, Alexa Chung, Chris Bosh, and of course the “scene” of the hour, Lindsay Lohan (who everyone initially thought was Gaga, which was quite funny).
Cynthia’s collection had lots of adorable floral dresses and jackets, leggings with multicolored stitching, black and gold frocks (red carpet anyone?), swim-looking shirts with matching mini shorts, and stunning accessories like metallic gold sandals and multicolored/metallic purses (and so much more).
As I’ve been writing this post, I’ve been watching the 9/11 memorial at the same time. It is so heartbreaking to watch, but it is most important to remember. My heart goes out to everyone who has lost on this tragic day.
