NYC Photo Diary

As promised in my last post: a complete NYC 2-Day Extravaganza Photo Diary.

Above all, it must be noted how absolutely gorgeous upstate New York is in the fall. I realize I’m probably really late to the party on this one but I had to note it.

On our first full day, we explored Brooklyn in the morning, getting coffee and of course stopping at Beacon’s closet – hands down the best thrift store I’ve ever been to. Found an unused Loeffler Randall bag, a full 3.1 Phillip Lim suit, Dior Jacket, Missoni heels – the works. It was amazing. *sighs* I love New York.

After we got back to the island we walked around Soho, and met up with one of my best friends from home! Sadly I didn’t get a picture with her, but you really have no reason to mistrust me on the matter so I’ll leave it at that. We shot an outfit post, and managed to get this picture of me pondering ~stuff~ in front of a classic NYC cab.

So that was Sunday. On Monday, we totally switched gears and dove head first into the Uptown Experience, window shopping on 5th Avenue and munching at Fred’s (in Barney’s New York), along with a restaurant full of “ladies at lunch.” Here’s what I wore:

The actual coat of my dreams, given it’s practically a replica of Ms. Penny Lane’s (*swoon*).

After lunch, a stroll along Central Park, and a quick stop by the Plaza for a photo-op, we finally headed back downtown to hang in Greenwich Village. We got coffee, looked at puppies (check the adorable puggle below), and generally just tried to forget we’d be headed back to reality the next day.

A quick outfit change:

As a last hoorah, we traveled to the Meatpacking District and hopped on the High Line bandwagon. We watched the sun set over skylines, and soaked in the last rays of New York sunshine we could. The trip was too short, but I guess that just means I’ll have to go back sooner than I thought.

Having just gotten back from a 2 day NYC extravaganza,┬áto say I’m exhausted is an understatement. My fab tourguide/Montreal roomate/bestie managed to pack a million sites into 48 hours — Brooklyn and Downtown on Sunday and Uptown on Monday — and I’m feeling pretty accomplished right now. I’ll be posting a more detailed Photo Diary later this week but for now, here’s my Day 1, Brooklyn/Downtown look.

NYFW: Recap

As New York Fashion week officially ended today with the Marc Jacobs International show, I decided to review my favorite collections of the week with you guys! The first is the Donna Karan show. The edge was undeniable, yet the silhouettes were classic and sophisticated.

The BCBG Max Azria show was incredible for multiple reasons:

1) Leather

2) Incredible fur pieces

3) Maxi and Midi skirts with boots

4) Need I say more?

The Coach show was so intriguing in the way that the collection included warm and cozy “log cabin”-esque attire along with sharp looks.

One look would seem as if it would be perfect to wear to a weekend in a cozy lodge and the next look to come out would be a leather mini with a graphic sweater (see left).

Finally, my favorite collection of the A/W New York Fashion week! The DKNY show blew me away in all its effortlessly cool glory. The fur gillets and mini skirts added up to a perfect city girl look. Watching the show made me want to pack up my bags and move to New York right then. (As if I don’t want to move there badly enough?!)

I can’t wait to see what London, Paris, and Milan have in store for A/W 2014. What were your guys’ favorite collections? Favorite looks? xx
