candy coated nyfw


I'm so grateful for the awesome opportunity to attend my second New York Fashion Week for this FW2013 season! I started it off with my first red-eye into New York and zombied my way into Times Square at 7AM for some breakfast before heading off to Lincoln Center. I was inspired to go candy-coated bright for my first outfit in New York because I was just that compelled to bring a little California flavor to the city. I found this structured, bright turquoise, neoprene jacket on sale at Urban Outfitters that surprisingly helped me survive the freezing wind a Californian isn't used to. And I just couldn't resist the bright color-block with my Mara Hoffman pants. But those little silk things are terrible for NYC winter by the way. I learned to go back to my 2nd grade ways and layer leggings under pants the next few days (my mom was a bit paranoid of me getting cold as a child). Anyway, it was a bit of fun clashing with the muted palette of the NYC masses and basically becoming a walking neon sign. It was such a great experience seeing the Fall collections of these amazing designers and surviving my first NYC "snowstorm", aptly named Nemo (I guess it was a cute snowstorm). I'll definitely post more of my experience coming up! Thank you for reading and for always supporting my little blog on my way to my dreams :)


Happy Valentine's Day!

  5. I envy you so much! That shade of blue is really beautiful... Kind of like a bubblegum blue? I love how you wear this shade with the actual bubblegum pink pants and a patterned tee... and also the sheer black fabric on the tee? Everything is perfect.
