Even though New York Fashion Week is long over (I think I’ve finally caught up on sleep), I still can’t get some of the collections out of my head. The breathtaking colors at Jason Wu, the surf inspired pieces at Rag & Bone, Theysken’s Theory holographic printed leather pants; to quote Rachel Zoe, “I die.”

One of the biggest trends on the runway this season was big, graphic, floral prints (I mean, have you seen Christopher Kane’s latest masterpiece collection!? Again, I die). I’m not usually one for flowers on clothing, but there’s something about the looks this season that have me craving flowers in all shapes and forms.

My good friend Jessica Stage* recently graduated from the New York Botanical Garden Floral Design program (see her amazing blog here!) and seriously blows me away with each and every one of her incredible arrangements. While reminiscing on Fashion Week, I sent Jess five of my favorite runway looks for her to base some of her artful bouquets off of. As a result I’ve realized that I’d be equally as happy with any of these arrangements sitting on my coffee table as I would with the below Jill Stuart dress hanging in my closet, or at least until the flowers die and then we can talk about the dress…

I’m still knee deep in Fashion Week - I have Frosty the Snowman charcoal eyes, zits on my face, and a whopping five blisters on my feet from all the shoesies I’ve been wearing. All glitz and glamor, right? Not entirely. But I’ve been having an amazing time! I’ve never covered so many shows in a season and I’ve gotten to meet some incredible people - including LARA STONE (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), more details to come later in the week!

I thought I’d give a little tribute to some of the shoes I’ve been busting out all week by featuring them in a post with a link to an outfit of me wearing them. I haven’t worn a lot of these shoes in ages, so it’s nice to have them back in rotation, even if some of them give me blisters so painful I’m taken back to my days as a ballerina in pointe shoes.

Aside from the Barbie tennis shoes I wouldn’t take off as a toddler, I’ve always been much more of a bag and jewelry person than a shoe person. But oh how the times have changed. I’m slowly but surely building my designer shoe collection, and while many of them aren’t featured here, you can bet your bottom dollar that they’re sitting nice and cozy in their shoe boxes just waiting to be worn!

I’m excited to announce my participation in Nine West’s Runway Relief Program which launches today! The program raises funds and awareness for the charitable organization, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC) run by the CFDA. Throughout Fashion Week models wearing the Runway Relief boot will raise money with each step they take off the runway and you can join the movement too! Here’s how:

• Follow Nine West on twitter (@ninewest) and retweet with the hashtag #runwayrelief. For every retweet, $1 will go to FTBC.

• These boots are pretty sick, I know, and the messenger bag and tank top are equally as cool. Go shop the gear and all proceeds will go toward FTBC.

• Need some new tunes? Me too. Download the Runway Relief CD and get some new music for those ears while simultaneously supporting breast cancer research.

And if you’re looking for something to do tonight during Fashion’s Night Out then might I suggest bopping over to Nine West’s Rockefeller Center store to have your photograph taken by Nigel Barker? Yup! Just like in America’s Next Top Model (guilty pleasure anyone?!). Just make sure to RSVP here and hopefully I’ll see you there!

It’s that time of year again! This Fashion Week is probably going to be my craziest yet but I can’t wait to see all the new collections and some familiar faces that I really only see during this time of year.

As with every Fashion Week, I try to be as prepared as possible (I’m laughing at myself right now for even saying that because no matter how organized I am, something always happens…here’s to wishful thinking!).

The most important thing for me this coming week is what I’m carrying in my bag, be it technology devices (the iPad is my saving grace) or the multitude of bandaids I carry for those bound-to-happen blisters. Since I’m going to be pretty swamped for the next 7 days I’ve scheduled posts so things will remain normal over here on Runway Hippie. But! If you want to follow me on a daily basis around Fashion Week I’ll be manning the ropes over on Modelinia!

It’s mind boggling how fast things can change. I just took on a new gig for the next four weeks (including Fashion Week!) and while I couldn’t be more excited, I admit that the change to my schedule is quite an adjustment. It’s been awhile since I last worked in an office and I’m slowly but surely getting used to this whole I can’t roll out of bed and work all day in my pjs thing. That being said, this new experience (I’ll share with you later I swear!) has been so much fun and I’m thoroughly looking forward to the following weeks…even if I walk out of Fashion Week with permanent dark circles around my eyes. It’s all worth it!

Since I’ve been in an office for the majority of the week, I didn’t really have a chance to take a ton of interesting photos. So instead I thought I’d share some of my instagram pictures that I’ve taken over the past few months. I kind of have an obsession with this iPhone app and would love it if you shared your instagrams with me too! If you have instagram be sure to follow me (@RunwayHippie) and if not, then you can peep my photos on Web.stagram!
