It’s that time again. NYFW is literally days ago. The only thing that’s keeping me slight sane and kinda organized are these women right here. (Why do I always looks irritated? I was actually having fun!)
So I am currently pinching myself! Like seriously, did I just interview one of my favorite designers. She’s just a regular girl from Detroit living out her dreams, but OMG Tracy Reese put Michelle Obama in one of her best looks ever!
Well tailored pieces with English influences graced the models for the Ruffian Fall 2013 Collection.

I spotted a few on the runway that I must try. Some I may have to get the salon to do. My hands aren’t that steady.
Early AM runway shows are always the hardest. You’ve been out partying and drinking the night before, pushed that snooze button at least 5 times, and now you’re rushing to the train with 5 inches platforms on hoping that the designer is as late as you are. Luckily nothing starts on time at MBFW!
