Hey guys long time no talk! I know it's been a minute.. JK! A minute is an understatement of how long I have not updated you guys. The truth is, there has been so much going on lately. It's my first summer in NYC & between my regular job, internship, social life, and everything in between I feel like I have not stopped. There is so much I need to catch up on and I definitely will over time.
For now, I need to fill you all in on my lastest Men's fashion week shenanigans. Can you believe this was my 4th season attending? It baffles me sometimes when I think about it. Each season always brings something new and excited to the table and it's great to see how it differentiates from the last.
I couldn't attend the first official day because I had an important day at my internship and could not miss. So my day 1 was technically day 2 of men's week but I know you guys get it. For my outfit choice, I decided to pay homage to one my faves, King Kylie! I felt like the shirt from her Kylie Pop Up Shop that my best friend Katryna got me for my birthday deserved a day out. I decided to dress it up a bit with some smart cropped pants and black dress shoes but at the same time I felt like I needed an extra layer. It was too hot to wear a jacket so the denim buttoned down worked just fine. Pictured below are shots from the Death To Tennis presentation and Patrik Ervell show. The Death To Tennis presentation was definitely a concept considering all the models had their phones and were live steaming and taking selfies of themselves as the audience took pictures of them. Later that night, there was a Carlos Campos after party at The Jimmy at The James Hotel, but it was a flop if we are being honest. The location was great and the DJ was spinning Hispanic music which I LOVE, but there was no air conditioning, no drinks & the party itself could have been better. My friends and I ended up going to The Standard to end our night. Nothing too crazy, because I had to wake up early for the next days events.
My day 2 but the 3rd day of Men's Week was probably my favorite of the entire week. The weather was ridiculous which is why most of my shirt was unbuttoned but I was definitely feeling myself & my outfit either way. I going for a preppy European summer vibe with the striped shirt, rolled up beige pants, and penny loafers. After a presentation at the Cadillac House some fellow blogger, photographer friends, and I caught up over some lunch at Westville. If you've ever attended NYFW you're familiar with Westville because it's literally right across the street from where most of the shows take place. Later that day I attended the Ovadia & Sons show, and if you're wondering if I had an invite to that one, I didn't, but you know I finessed it LOL. The Ovadia brothers always kill it and I was not about to miss out. That night there was a Parke & Ronen After Party at Gilded Lily and I knew I couldn't miss that either. I was looking forward to it all day especially because Gilded Lily is a "poppin" club and if a fashion week after party is held there you already know it's going to be a good time. I wasn't wrong. It was a blast and the fact most of my friends were present as well made it even better. This party 100% made up for the mess that was the night before LOL.
Ok so day 3 was probably the busiest day of week. It was the last day and everyone always wants to make it count. I started off with the Raun Larose presentation. There was a black transparent jacket that really caught everyone’s attention and it definitely caught my eye as well. For this day I decided to be a bit more casual yet trendy and wear a DHL shirt. I wore it with some cropped pants and Adidas Stan Smiths. After that we headed over to a swim suit brand that I honestly forgot the name of. Regardless it encouraged me to start hitting the gym more often. Next, we grabbed a quick bite to eat at a nearby deli because we literally had NO time and we needed to get to the next location ASAP. I even had an outfit change in between. LOL. I changed into some fire sweatpants and a silk white t shirt. I layered up with an aluminum-like rain jacket which served it’s purpose because at this time it started to drizzle. I’m usually never that person but sometimes you just have to step outside your comfort zone and try new things right? We arrived at the Theory presentation and I was definitely the most extra person in the room compared to everyone else. I got some looks here and there but a lot of people told me my fit was fire hahah. Afterwards, we headed to the Dream Hotel to catch the Grungy Gentlemen show. Following that, we rushed back to Skylight for the C2H4 show. It was a packed house but the show was great and had a intergalactic space theme to it. The collection was called Zero Gravity which definitely reflected the clothing vibe. To close out the night we headed to the Rochambeau presentation at The Cadillac House which turned out to be more of a party than an actual presentation. All of the models were basically just turning up and dancing to the music that was playing. It was a really great time, the music was “lit”, and there was even a performance by Yung Jake. If you have me on snapchat I’m sure you saw what went down.
Cheers to another great season. Can't wait for September!
