Gone to Fashion Week…l

Can’t wait for Team Calico’s up-coming jaunt to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York!!!

John and I attended our first ever Fashion Week this past Fall. We had tons of fun tent-lurking, celeb-spotting, and gallery-hopping with our friend, Tom Bob.

John and I, being VIPs at a fashion presentation. John’s wearing a vintage Christian Dior shirt, vintage double-breasted blazer, American Apparel skinnies, and vintage Bostonian oxfords. I’m wearing one of my fave dresses–a one shoulder, accordion pleat mini from Rojas–and Jeffrey Campbell platforms.

Didn’t care for the designer’s line, but did love the free cocktails and how the bar lit up when you touched it… I think the bar was actually called “Touch…”

Our gracious host, Tom Bob

A fab costume designer we met at the tents! John wears vintage jodhpurs and jacket, 80’s shades, and vintage oxfords.

So fly

Me, in my sensible Keds, on the High Line with T.B. With vintage
“bling print” skinny jeans, AA tee, vintage leather jacket, and 80’s Capezzio hobo bag.

This time, John has secured us press passes, and we’ll hopefully be able to see Phillip Lim and Anna Sui–among others! We’re also planning to attend Evolving Influence, the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference, take TONS of street style pics, get merchandising and visuals inspiration for our new storefront with Heir Antiques, and possibly hit up the MOMA, if we have time!

New York is always so inspiring! Cody and I strolled Fifth Avenue last March to get inspiration for our spring windows. Unparalleled fabulousity.

Fendi. I die.

We’ll be headed out Sunday night! Follow @shopcalico on Twitter for tons of behind-the-scenes tweets! Unfortunately, we’ll be without a laptop–but will try to update the blog during our trip, if possible. Anyway, rest assured that we’ll be back with tons of pics and inspiration for our up-coming webshop, storefront with Heir, and more! It’s going to be the best spring EVER!


P.S. Our dNB storefront will be CLOSED Monday and Tuesday, and OPEN Wednesday 12-4. Our regular winter hours (Mon-Sat 12-5, Sun 12-4) will resume Thursday, February 18.
