I'm like most women. I like to layer. Layers make me happy. Cooler weather puts a smile on my face. I was getting excited for the cool weather we were getting and then a random heat wave showed up. Oh 80+ degrees in late September? Oh ok. I just want to curl up in all the sweaters. Click through to pin them to your autumn clothing board. I know you have one.
This has been a complete whirlwind of a month. This may be a short +/- because in all honesty I am writing this three days in advance on a Friday night and I need to get myself to bed.
+ New York Fashion Week. It was amazing. Watch the vlog. NYFW will be the majority of this +/-
+ I met Rosario Dawson. She photobombed me. Like what is this life? I also met my YouTube queen Claire Marshall. She was everything. I met girls from Orange Is The New Black. I met Audrey Kitching. I met all the people.
+ I saw the holy trinity of Kelly Cutrone, Emily Bungert, Stefanie Skinner, PR power women. I've met and spoken briefly with Emily my first fashion week (I was starstruck and barely made any sense) and have seen Kelly Cutrone yell at someone in front of me and stomp away that same show (it was magical), but my first time seeing Stefanie. She pointed at me in line and she said "don't let anyone else in after her" (I had an internal freak out). I watch Kell on Earth religiously on Netflix so I love them on a level most do not.
+ Parties! Free Champagne! I went to so many shows! This was my best fashion week to date. I had such a blast. Plus I didn't manage to get sick!
+ I got asked to shoot an event for Refinery29 in Boston! That was not an email I was expecting to get but I'm so glad I was on their radar. Hopefully it leads to more work with them!
+/- I managed to still blog everyday this month. Don't know how I pulled that off and not only every weekday but multiple times a day during fashion week. I've learned that I really need to plan out what each day's post will be otherwise I am totally lost.
So by the time this post goes up, I should have moved into a new apartment. I am most likely lying in a pile of my belongings crying. There really isn't any time to unpack and settle. At the end of the week I am off to New York for shoots, the launch of the NYC Lady Project, and Shira's birthday party that Rachel and I are throwing. I am currently writing this on a Friday night, listening to Luther Vandross, and trying to not freak out over how much I have to do.
Anywhoo, I'm excited to decorate my new bedroom. I have no closets though and a friend is giving me her garment racks. I'm also going to Ikea and buying my dream bed so I'm all kinds of pumped about that. In the meantime I have to get through the weekend of shooting all day in Boston for Refinery29 (more on that later) and then a photo shoot Sunday morning and then moving. Let's see if I survived. Check back to see how I made out.
I've never been one at trend forecasting but when Rachel said we needed to do a character photoshoot for Nylon Japan, I said "how about Barbie?". Little did I know that the world's favorite blonde would be appearing all over the runway this season. Jeremy Scott created Barbie's dream wardrobe for this season's Moschino collection. Wildfox is coming out with a Barbie collection as well.
We will have a photo in the November print issue of Nylon Japan, which we are really excited about. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!
