NYFW …. The clothes! What to wear when you attend NWFW In the Fall….With this being My First Time, not a lot of time to plan and unusually warm weather, I felt I did pretty good on the packing and choosing the right outfits for for shows, travel, sight seeing and Nightlife. I didn’t feel out of place or uncomfortable in any situation but I did learn  pack only clothes that photograph well ( I wore a pretty dress that I love to the Social House event and It doesn’t photograph well…. It was perfect for Brunch which I knew It would be but I knew in my heart it wasn’t going to photograph well and it didn’t!) not having time to change to get to Social House…. I missed out on Having some great photograph opportunities….

I would make changes for sure….. Pack More skirts & dresses,  only clothes that photograph well, I didn’t need as much jewelry as I packed…. ( narrow down Jewlery to go with each outfit!) being my first time I brought Casual and dressy for each outfit❤️ I also brought to Many shoes Way to Many Shoes Narrow down to My Favorite Black Heel’s, shoes to match My dressier dress, 1 pair of sandals , pair of Tennis shoes and 1 flip flop and 1 Bootie or wedge! Really Take the time to match. Shoes to multiple outfits…Shoes weigh a lot and you really need the spare weight!

Things I packed that I was so thankful for…. My black waxy leather jeans I wore 3 times and made 3 completely different outfits with differnt tops, jacket, shoes and accessories ( sorry we were rushing so much of the Time we forgot pictures of some outfits) my leather jacket… Not because it was cold ( it was unbearably hot a couple of the days) but to add a cool factor on your shoulders! My Hobo bag ❤️ goes cross body for sight seeing And travel day’s,(www.chicstyleutah.com) 1pair Of trendy jeans, shoe pads, gel for the heels, foot cream, Bandades, 2 portable charges, airborne and aspirin.

More Packing Tips in a feature Post!

Hope you find some inspiration in some of what We wore for New York Fashion Week ,

NYFW (The Shows) Part 1

NYFW ( New York Fashion Week) A dream since I was 10!

As a little girl I played Barbies just to dress her and design her house… I have love Fashion from planing my school outfits to getting dressed up for Dances or compete in Pagents! As I grew I scoured Magazines and love to window shop and of course shop! I would watch the award shows just to view the red carpet. To attend NYFW Was one of my biggest dreams. Not to just Fly to New York and be in the city the week it was happening… But to actually be apart of shows, parties, influencer parties and soak in the excitement of what Fashion week is all about!

My Dream came true when My sister called and Said “I got contracted to do Make up for NYFW… You should come with Me!!”  WHAT … Is this really happening!!!  It was and so the planning, contacting and research began!) oh…. And what was I going to wear!!!! ????  Between Owning a Boutique, my contacts with Style Collective, contacts I have made over the years and of course My Sister’s ( Tiana Holiday) contacts and connections we started to plan our Big week…. We had just 3 weeks to Plan and organize what would be our first vacation ever together, not to mention a dream come true for both… And we get to exsperience it together! Pure Joy❤️

I will be sharing our exsperience in 6 parts…. The Breakdown of NYFW

The Fashion Shows

The Parties

My Outfits ( and some of my sisters)

The food

The sights

The swag

The shows…. This is not an easy task to get into a Show Small or  Big…. So we were Blessed to attending 1 show let alone 6 shows with seats ( shows have seats and standing at each show) Specially at such short notice! (God was really working for us) People work at getting into shows for months prior!

Here is a peak at the Shows I was LUCKY to attend.

Seeing shows first hand and being able to see a good verity of shows, from New designers to established designers was such a treat! The Quality of clothing, the craftsmanship and detail was amazing on different levels. Some of the shows weren’t my style but you could appreciate the Craftmanship or Just one piece you could see how you would style it!  I love the Venues, each so different and ALL over the city!  Exciting to feel the different energy of each show and of course people watch! ( people watching is one of my favorite things!  I could hear my mom telling “their story” in my head❤️) Fashion is different to everyone… Quality, design, Trendy, personal flare, affordable , expensive , classy AND at Fashion week you see it All!

Truly felt blessed to have gotten this exsperience and I have to tell you it was better then any of my hopes & dreams! Now that I have done it once and learned so much… I would love to plan really plan really prepare …I ‘ve got the bug and do it again next year!  I have a better Idea of what to expect, what to pack , how to plan, what events to do again, what to show up extra early for and what to skip!

Hope you enjoyed the shows through my eyes and looking forward to Post 2 of NYFW…
