| The Lost Post From NYFW |
NYFW: The event that every so called fashion lover and style fanatic wants to be apart of.
I must admit, I am one of those people. Like most, it has always been a dream of mine to attend New York Fashion Week. I can’t pin point the exact moment that it happened for me, but somewhere down the line, I got it in my head that making it to NYFW was the ultimate goal. The grand prize. Well friends, I can officially say that I have been living in NYC for three of them, but have yet to actually attend one. To be fair, I have had some pretty good excuses. The first one took place during our wedding week. The second one took place during our Honey Moon to Mexico. And the third one…well the third one, I was invited to a bunch of shows, but was honestly TOO BUSY with work to pick up in the middle of the day and attend one. Some of us still have to make money, honey. It ain’t easy out here livin’ in the city!
New York fashion – it is such a beautiful thing.
Honestly, that is what I was most excited about when I first found out that I would be moving to Manhattan. All I could imagine in my head was being able to dress up like Carrie Bradshaw everyday without having anyone judge me as I walked down the street. I have always had a passion for experimenting with style, but I felt like I never lived in a city that could accept or admire it. It was so refreshing to step outside for the first time and be completely comfortable with myself and what I was wearing. I mean, I was always confident enough to wear what I wanted in other cities, but it did bug me when others would constantly ask, “what are you wearing!?!?” At least the joke was usually on them when a few months down the line my outfit inspirations became the new hip thing that everyone had to get their hands on! That’s the perk of being able to study fashion trends – having the ability to forecast what the next big thing will be. People may look at you like you’re crazy when they see it for the first time, but I know in the back of my head that they will be reaching for the same pieces soon enough.
