The opening day of MBFW always brings out the stylish folks. And I am now one of them. This year I said I would live up to my fashion know-it-all reputation and really think about what I was going to wear. (I will add that this ONLY lasted for the first 3 days, it’s Monday and I am just worried about covering shows not looking fab!)


My friend (Asia from NYLA Report) and I were on our way to get our Starbucks fix and a guy stopped us and asked for our pictures. I wanted to give the “stank face” because I was feening for coffee but I’m always nice – you never know who is who at fashion week. Inside .. or outside.




Many folks wrote off latex-leather-ish leggings but I saved mine from 2 seasons ago and pulled them out for the trip. Go figure that EVERY socialite and fashionista is rocking some type of leatherette pant from tight skirts, to short short shorts, to of course the leggings. I figured I would go for a rocker chick look so I paired it with my black leatherette jacket I got from Torrid.

My H&M circle scarf (I don’t know what else to call it?) makes for a really warm accessory. NEWS FLASH >> Leatherette does not keep you warm.

Sequins is another trend that everyone is wearing. It’s a great nightlife garment meant to be seen and sparkle so of course the NYFW fabs are sporting this too. Including me – difference is, I opted for the big sequins clutch bag I got from Forever21 2 years ago. Sequins clothing makes me itch?

My mother will be glad to know that I actually wore a pair of shoes that she “regifted” to me. I needed a cute small heel that would be strong with me for the 9 hour days I would be standing/walking during MBFW. My new Easy Spirits that I am sure my mother got from held up nicely.

Again, all of my style efforts and my need to be stylish wore off today and I am back to plain ole me. I enjoyed me life in the style file though!

    Oooooh, go Ty! Loving your H&M eternity scarf. And that bag? Perfection. From the looks of your tweets seems like you're having a ball at NYFW 🙂
