Last Wednesday was my last day of New York Fashion Week Spring ’13! Since I only had the Michael Kors show in the morning and a few other small things to do, I decided to go casual. A first for me. My feet were just a blistered and thus band-aided mess so I knew I wanted to wear my super comfy Ash ‘Bowie’ Wedge sneakers. Yes, I planned my outfit around my footwear. Who doesn’t?
I found these awesome python print jeans at the Saks Off Fifth near my parent’s house last month and snapped them up for a song. Even my mother approved. The Stuart Weitzman clutch is my new favorite bag so I carry it whenever I get the chance. I also wore some of my favorite jewelry which includes my Alexis Bittar earrings, YSL ring, Tina Nguyen Endurance Bracelet, and new Baume and Mercier watch.
After the Michael Kors show I had some spare time so I had my hair styled at the TRESemme Hair Lounge in Lincoln Center for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. It was the best hair style I have had in a long time and it was a shame to wash it! The beachy waves with flat-ironed ends was created by TRESemme for the Rebecca Minkoff show and will be a hot hair trend for Spring (or now) I’m told.
