Ok, I take it back, I’m really happy Fashion Week is over. I’m exhausted. I need sleep, and I desperately need to do my laundry cause I’m almost out of underwear…too much information? Deal with it.

Here’s round two of my New York Fashion Week photo experience featuring Rachel Roy, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Marchesa, J.Mendel, and Proenza Schouler. I’m actually pretty excited about the spring collections from what I’ve seen thus far. I love the geometric color-blocking, the all white silhouettes, and the tropical patterns - particularly the ones from Proenza Schouler.

I’m really looking forward to a weekend of absolutely NOTHING. I hope to feel rejuvenated by Monday and I think a massage and a pedicure are most certainly in order this weekend. Have a great weekend and I can’t wait to get back on track with ya’ll now that Fashion Week is over!

Ok…maybe I miss it just a little…

NYFW Photo Diary Numero Uno

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?!):

Fall shopping has always been my favorite, but it also happens to be the most expensive. Leather jackets, sturdy boots and chunky sweaters are, for the most part, much pricier than summer dresses and cut-offs. While I’m still lusting after the items I featured in this post, I can’t help but be tempted by all the amazing sales happening right now. I’m amazed at how many clearance pieces are as functional for fall as they are for spring and summer! SHWING!

Here are some items I’m currently drooling over and most likely adding to my shopping cart before they go bye bye. Isn’t it the best when things you love are on sale!?

  1. Proenza Schouler Seamed Bodice Dress - $825 $335

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!
