For Day 2 of New York Fashion Week, my main goal was to…stay warm! The temps really dropped, which certainly makes remaining stylish quite a challenge, while dealing with drastic fluxes from blaring hot air inside of the tents to overcrowded and cramped backstage spaces and then…walking back to the train at the end of the day, exposed to the elements along the way. It’s still too early to have a good grasp on the trends for fall/winter 2015, although I can tell you that the only trend to truly emerge this early is that…no one appears to be producing season-appropriate clothing. It’s feeling much more resort, with thigh-high slits, filmy, transparent layers, and slinky fabrications than its traditionally sturdier winter counterparts. Let’s see what the rest of the week has in store for us….

Thinking about warmer months ahead never gets out for me, so I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of summer here on the east coast, in order to wear some pieces from Lands’ End 2015 swim lineup! You actually can shop it now, which is a great way to anticipate lazy beach days ahead, thanks to its lovely swim tees, sandals, bikinis, beach totes, “dresskinis”, one pieces, and more. A cool new addition to this season is the ability to monogram swimsuits; three initials on the hip look ultra sophisticated; my favorite style to pair one with is this Tugless Tank One Piece Swimsuit in stripe.
Peruse through my top picks from the preview of the line via the slideshow above, and shop online or in store for your swimwear, coverup, and summer accessory stylish needs.

After I did the “What FPD Wore Fashion Week Day 1” post, I decided to do things a bit differently with a composite post comprising of all of the looks from the week! Below, you’ll find what I wore on days 2 – 7 of New York Fashion Week for Fall 2013, with a special thanks to Dana-Maxx for the lovely clothing, Land’s End for the great tote, and Sorrelli for always keeping me well-jeweled and sparkly. Which day’s look is your favorite?
The blizzard was well on its way, so dressing appropriately for the weather was a key concern! I went for a red and beige color scheme, with the most important part of my look being the boots!
Sweater: Rodarte for Opening Ceremony; Scarf: Alexander McQueen; Jeans: NYDJ; Boots: Sorel Joan of Artic; Ring: Sorrelli King of the Jungle Cuff Ring; Bag (not pictured): Land’s End Linen & Leather Tote.
Day 3: And…the storm came! Again being warm and bundled up with waterproof footwear is a must, but fashion week stops for nothing, so trekking on I must do! I filmed an episode of Street Peek, spent some time in the Style Coalition Influencer Lounge and later went to the Project Runway Reunion Party and Technology Panel with my friend Rebecca from Sorelli such a fun way to end the day; too bad I can’t stay out late —Sunday brings more shows and events; fashion week does not stop over the weekend!
Jacket: Dana-Maxx; Top: J.Crew; Pants: Club Monaco; Boots: Sorel Jewelry: All by Sorrelli & MiMi by Sorrelli.
With plenty of snow still on the ground, there was now way I was making it through the day without a lot of layering, and once again — boots! Today was insanely busy for me, with about 7 shows and two Grammy’s parties, so I had to be looking great and ultra comfortable to last for 14 hours.
Dress: L’Amour by Nanette Lepore for jcpenney; Turtleneck: heat tech by Uniqlo; Tights; Charnos from AlexBlake.com; Boots: Sorel, Cuff Bracelet: Kate Young for Target; Necklace, earrings, and ring: All Sorrelli from the Atlantis Collection.
The week didn’t seem to slow down one bit as it went on, and today was action-packed with designer meet-and-greets at Style Coalition, shows, backstage access and interviews, and work, work, and more writing work! I was fortunate to meet designers Timo Weiland and Rafael Cennamo (and took photos with them, above), and did a video confessional live from the lounge on how my fashion week was going.
Dress: Dana-Maxx; Bolero Jacket: Narciso Rodriguez DesigNation for Kohl’s; Tights: Kushyfoot; Boots (not pictured): Cougar; Bag (not pictured): Land’s End Linen & Leather Tote; Laquer and metal orange/red bracelet: BaubleBar; Bracelets, earrings, and ring: MiMi by Sorrelli, Sorrelli Atlantis Collection, and Avant Garde by Sorrelli Aquatic Series Collection.
Another day of glamour and excitement, I rallied my energy and headed out the door for Day 6! Comfort is everything, and although I see plenty of ‘cab to curb’ heels at fashion week, I certainly hit the pavement hard and couldn’t rely on thinly-heeled stilettos to get me through the day! I did stop at The Daily Style Sessions Suite to take a load off and learn about some of the sponsored products while sipping on my absolute favorite – Vita Coco Coconut Water.
Dress: Dana-Maxx, Bolero: Rachel Rachel Roy, Tights: Hanes; Bag: Land’s End, Shoes: Sorel Medina Rain Heels; Eyeglasses: Vogue Eyewear for LensCrafters; Cuff: unkown; Earrings and Ring: Sorrelli and MiMi by Sorrelli.
And it’s a wrap! It’s been quite a week, and I can’t wait to share all of my experiences, trend, and beauty tips with you that are sure to be big come fall 2013.
