I don’t know about you guys but office supply shopping and organization has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. During the days of back-to-school shopping I used to make my Mom spend hours in Office Depot as I picked out the perfect assortment of pens, pencils, binders, and lord knows what else I deemed vital to my education experience.

While most people have transitioned to using their cellphones for just about anything, I still write everything down, including my schedule. I used to try and cram everything into this tiny Moleskin calendar but then my friend Ally introduced me to Erin Condren; a site devoted to personalized stationary, iPhone cases, calling cards, and my personal favorite, the ultimate planner. Color coated months, at-a-glance weeks, and conveniently placed to-do lists grace these amazing planners which you can customize right down to the very last detail all for just $50. I seriously feel like a dorky 5th grader happily writing down homework assignments all over again.

Everything I do this weekend will be Halloween related and I am PUUUMPED! Tonight I’m going to lay low, watch Hocus Pocus and put the final touches on my lamb costume. Tomorrow I’m dressing Finn up as a duck (he’s one every year) and hitting the dog park. Tomorrow night I’m off to a Halloween party with some friends. And Sunday I’ll be putting my final touches on my Halloween costume for Monday!

This week has been atrociously busy so I’m looking forward to nothing but fun and play this weekend. What are you all dressing up as?

Fall is the season where I create my best “runway hippie” outfits. If you’re wondering what on earth that means, allow me to explain. I am as equally drawn to free flowing bohemian apparel as I am to the decadent, high-fashion designs we see on the runway and am thus constantly integrating both styles into my outfits. For example, I am on the hunt for a Penny Lane inspired suede coat with fur trim (mine was stolen about two years ago) and am also coveting everything from the F/W Prada and Stella McCartney runways.

Runway. Hippie. Get it? HAR HAR!

Anyways, as I approach my closet every morning, excited about the fact that I can finally layer my favorite clashing styles, I look to these images for inspiration. Intricate and ornamented Balmain, bohemian Kate Moss, gypsy feathers, armored fingers, oy! I love Fall!

Holy tomato. I can’t believe it’s the final day of Fashion Week! What a seven day whirlwind it’s been - bouncing around from show to show, interviewing every model in sight (check out all my reviews & interviews on Modelinia), and ending every night with either an insane amount of writing or fashion week partying. Oy! While I’ve covered Fashion Week before, this was the first time that I literally had maaaybe an hour to chill each day - and that’s pushing it.

While I can’t wait to wear flats all weekend, watch some football and have an actual sit-down meal, I’ve honestly had an amazing time. Never in a million years did I dream I’d be front row at a Jason Wu show or chatting with Karolina Kurkova backstage at Rag & Bone or being interviewed for a Today Show segment at Marchesa (tune in during the 9AM hour on Friday!) but tralala here I am! And I’ve got the dark circles and blisters on my feet to prove it!

I’m looking forward to getting back on track with my blogging (I apologize for the few days that I didn’t get anything up) and spending some quality time with friends and Mr. Finn, but I admit I’m going to miss the thrill of walking up to those tents everyday…

Here’s my first photo series of my experiences this Fashion Week - I’m not posting photos from all the shows I went to because some are crappy and it would also be really overwhelming, but I’m thinking about making a Facebook album (thoughts?!):

{ Richard Chai Love }

{ Cushnie et Ochs }

{ Fashion’s Night Out - I met my favorite model Lara Stone and we fought over who loves Johnny Depp more! Also, look at my cheeseball fan face… }

{ Jason Wu}

{ Rag & Bone }

{ Prabal Gurung }

{ Backstage at Altuzarra }

More to come tomorrow!

And don’t forget to watch me on the Today Show tomorrow as well!

{ A visit to the Plaza }

As much as I miss being on the shore, it feels really great to be back in the city. This week was busier than I expected and aside from the sweat, it was great to be running from meetings to press events to more meetings. I’m working on a bunch of fun, upcoming projects that I am dying to share with you but I have to restrain myself. I promise I’ll tell you as soon as I can!

It’s a rare occasion that I get to kick-start my week with a spa treatment, but thanks to Birchbox and Caudalie, my week initiated with an amazing premier eye treatment at the Caudalie spa in the Plaza hotel followed by Caudalie wine and some incredible cheese. If only every week could start like that! I also got to preview Meredith Wendell’s Resort 2012 Collection which blew my mind! Definitely adding that release date to my calendar. And oh, how I wish I could share more about my week but you’ll know soon enough!

I’m excited to spend a weekend in NYC even though most people seem to be fleeing the predicted rain/heat. Sometimes all I need is a little time away for me to realize how much I love the city I live in - absence really does make the heart grow fonder!

Happy Weekend!
