NYFW: Tiptoeing through Snow


This NYFW revolved around lots of snow, and a ton of layers. I could barely feel my fingers the entire time! Just before the shows began, we went a little crazy preparing for the blizzard at home. We're talking 8 a.m. runs to Whole Foods to stock up the refrigerator, you know, grabbing ice cream and Pirate's Booty "just in case we need it!" Pretty soon, we had a house full of snacks and frozen pizza. That's how you get BLIZZARD READY. Luckily, just as the wind was hitting and the rain turned to snow, my lovely Hudson Jeans driver for the day, Leo, came to the rescue! Friday may have been the perfect day to have the driver! The car was already fully equipped for a crazy blizzard day for fashion week. Copies of Elle magazine in the backseat kept me occupied running around town between shows, there were a ton of sweets (GUMMYBEARS), oh, and even a few bottles of vodka (UHOH)! It really wasn't a party until Dylana showed up, and we could finally blast music and make dance videos with our driver (who was actually a total hunk)! I think we made our way to about 5 shows that day. BCBGMaxazria, with it's badass babes clad in beanies and flowing maxis. CANDELA, with the free spirit, and vintage inspired skirts and dresses. Rebecca Minkoff, WHIT, Nicole Miller, Stephanie Pleet, and Kate Spade to name a few. Our night went on and on, and before we knew it, we had Leo the driver on the list to the night's party, and memories to make us laugh for the rest of lives. Thank you Hudson jeans for an incredibly kickass day of Argentinian hunks, a car that allowed for a last minute outfit change, and of course, a fresh new pair of tapered pants.

ZOMG souunds like such a blast! That Pirate's Booty and Pizza is exactly how I would prepare for a blizzard, too ;) Dying over the texture of your coat, esp paired w/ that green bag.
