Raining Fashion


Just returned from a rainy, but fabulous, three days at New York Fashion Week!

I wore variations of this look for our entire trip – definitely the most bad weather-friendly ensemble I packed! Oversize American Apparel tee, vintage 80’s “bling print” jeans, vintage Wilson’s leather jacket, and stacked Jeffrey Campbell heels. (Psst! I stashed sensibly flat Keds in my purse!)


I was joined by Calico’s talented styling assistant, John Alves, to brave the downpours, lurk the tents, and mingle with the most fashion-forward people in the world.  John’s look, only partially-visible here, consists of vintage jodhpurs, a black fitted tee, a tailored tweed riding jacket, and vintage sunnies.



As soon as we arrived at Bryant Park, we knew we were doing okay, because the above fashionista’s asked to take OUR picture!


In addition to providing cigarettes and looking awesome, Johnny also scored us tickets to The Academy of Art’s runway show, where he goes to school for fashion merchandising.

While waiting in line for the show, I spotted a really cute girl, texting on her Blackberry. When I asked to take her pic, I realized it was none other than The Stylish Wanderer – one of our favorite blogs! She was rocking the most amazing ensemble – a  cranberry-colored catsuit paired with a matching vintage 40’s man’s robe, dangly amber necklace, and giant platform heels!

The Academy of Art Runway Show was pretty awesome! It was my first REAL runway show and so exciting! The runway actually GLOWED, the models were GIANT, and the shoes – INSANE!







This was my first NY Fashion Week, and I can’t WAIT to attend another! Feeling so inspired by all the amazing style we saw and awesome people we met!
