Another NYFW has come and gone...and what a blast it was

A little bubbly while packing is the perfect send-off.
And this time I went with a black mani/pedi for my trip to NYC.

A few of my carry-on must-haves included:

1. Torregrossa bag c/o
2. Acer touchscreen laptop
3. Apple iPad
4. Samsung Galaxy Android
5. Louis Vuitton wallet
6. Target aviator sunglasses
7. Fresh cosmetics Sugar "Plum" lipstick
8. Sleep mask by Brookstone
9. Tieks passport holder c/o
10. Elizabeth & James "Nirvana" scent

SAN FRANCISCO -------------> NEW YORK CITY


Looking out over Nolita, my home for the 2 weeks I roamed around NYFW. Nolita, SoHo, Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking are my favorite parts of the city. An innumerable amount of places to eat and shop. And I could just walk around for hours and never get tired.









HEY! THAT'S ME! UP IN THE JBD NEW YORK SHOWROOM WHEN I WENT FOR A VISIT/PREVIEW.
TRYING ON A MAGNIFICENT JBD NEW YORK COAT.
STOPPING BY 'SOMETHING SPECIAL' IN GREENWICH VILLAGE
SHOPPING IN NOLITA AT MY FAVE 'ONLY HEARTS'
SHOPPING IN SOHO ISN'T COMPLETE TILL I MAKE A STOP AT THE CALYPSO ST. BARTH OUTLET STORE.
WHERE I LAY MY HEAD AT NIGHT - FAMILY'S APARTMENT IN SOHO...I'M A LUCKY BITCH.

__________________________________________

THIS IS CALLED LUNCH DURING NYFW. HANGING OUT IN THE E! & TRESemme LOUNGE.

RAN INTO FELLOW BLOGGER RACHEL LYNCH OF "I HATE BLONDE" WALKING INTO LINCOLN CENTER.
SOMEHOW I MANAGED TO SNEAK MY BEST FRIEND (WHO IS ALSO NAMED RACHEL) INTO ALL THE SHOWS...AWESOME. AND I THINK I HAVE A THING FOR RACHEL'S. :)







I WORE A WHITE DRESS I HAD BOUGHT THE DAY BEFORE FROM THE ONLY HEARTS BOUTIQUE IN NOLITA. MY SHOES (LUCITE HEELS) ARE BY STEVE MADDEN + THE BLONDE SALAD COLLABORATION. MY BAG IS BY CYNTHIA ROWLEY & MY SHADES ARE FROM TARGET.


MICHAEL COSTELLO
























So, can you believe the amazing shots I got during the Michael Costello show?! Yea, me neither. It was crazy good luck. The way the runway was setup for this presentation, the girls weaved in and out of the rows of benches that were set up for the audience. Just so happened they walked right up to me. And so, in my Sally LaPointe top & Marissa Webb heels, I sprawled out on the floor and managed to not annoy anyone while I snapped away. Needless to say, the show was fantastic. Designs like Costello's are why I love coming to NYFW.



Strangely enough, this was the season I went to the most shows. Lucky me. Seriously though, the guest lists are tight these days, especially for non-cool bloggers like myself :)

Many thanks to the PR and designers behind:
Desigual
Marissa Webb
Venexiana
Supima Design Competition
Pas de Calais
Michael Costello
Pamella Roland
Jay Godfrey
Meskita
and
the Art Hearts Fashion show...which closes out
NYFW. And I got to bring a guest so I brought long-time blog reader Lindsay along with me.

But wait, there's more...my wonderful friends over at Tieks (those amazing blue-soled flats) sent me and a guest to see Aladdin on Broadway. I can't even begin to tell you how much you need to go see this musical/comedy if you're in NYC. It was fabulous, magic carpet and all. We had VIP seating and it was a VIP experience all-around. We loved it!



THANK YOU TIEKS!!



So...what else did I wear? Here's a few more.




DURING THE DAY SHOWS, I CHOSE THIS OLDIE BUT A GOODIE, ADAM BY ADAM LIPPES PRINTED DRESS. MARISSA WEBB HEELS, MIU MIU BAG & TARGET SHADES.



FOR THE LATE NIGHT COSTELLO SHOW, I WORE WHITE SLACKS FROM ZARA. A SALLY LAPOINTE BLACK, EMBOSSED BLOUSE. MARISSA WEBB HEELS & 3.1 PHILLIP LIM BAG.







I WORE AN ASOS CROP TOP. PANTS FROM A NOLITA BOUTIQUE CALLED 'BABY BLUE LINE'. TIEKS STARDTRUCK FLATS. KATE SPADE CLUTCH.

Even did some modeling for ELEGANTEES! 







HOW FUN IS THAT?! KATIE & I HAD A GREAT TIME BUSTING MOVES & GOING ROGUE IN BROOKLYN, KATIE TAKING SHOTS FOR THE ELEGANTEES WEBSITE....




AND I WAS INTERVIEWED/FEATURED BY STYLESPOTTER


“I have to say that after attending the past 4 seasons, I’ve finally figured it out. A comfy pair of shoes is the ticket to happiness and productivity at Lincoln Center…comfy BUT extremely awesome. And as luck would have it, I can thankChiara Feragni’s (The Blonde Salad) collab with the notorious Steve Madden for keeping me in the photog’s lense AND not scurrying over to the nearest CVS hunting down band-aids.”
Vanessa from Shop Save Sequins




This was by far my busiest trip to NYC. And it was definitely the most fun I've had....hey! I even took the F train! Ha!

Hope you all had a great time watching the adventure unroll by following hashtag #ShopSaveSequinsTakesNYFW on instagram, twitter & tumblr. Everywhere, as always.
