New York Fashion Week Inspiration with Eventbrite and a "what if..." moment

Every February social media is always buzzing about the upcoming New York Fashion Week. Most of us can only dream about ever going to one. Instead, we live viciously through some of the big name bloggers and celebrities who get front row seats to our favourite designers' shows. A few years ago, I did attempt to put my names down to some of the online competitions and drawings, hoping I'd be the lucky girl to take my mum or a friend to NYFW. These days, I am just happy browsing online like Instagram and Snapchat (my is kiwifashionblog, and kiwitweedy).

With NYFW fast approaching, I was inspired to create my version of what to wear if I'd ever get to go. Here are some of the essentials when I think of NYFW. First, how to battle the cold?  Faux fur automatically becomes a staple piece. Then, comfy shoes. One of the biggest complaints with bloggers is how their feet are always killing them by the end of the day running from show to show. Lastly, a bold lip. Sunglasses are essential so it is important to show off your lips. Let's face it, most of them are probably exhausted from the late parties the night before or simply still adjusting to different time zones.
So, here is my "interpretation" if I were to attend NYFW. A warm faux fur coat (full sleeve length because our arms get cold too), comfy black tights and mary-jane style clogs(good to fast walk or even run if needed), big sunglasses to hide those tired eyes and dark circles and lastly bold red lips.

If you would like to experience  NYFW you can still purchase tickets to some of the events via Eventbrite (link here). I think if I am being realistic here, I would love to go to Rebecca Minkoff's show. I have been her fan since the very early stage of her blooming career. I have also watched her live shows online and I just love the fun and unique vibe. Let's keep hoping, Rebecca Minkoff, one day, I shall meet you :)

For more opportunities to go to different events, go to Eventbrite for more information :)

ASOS faux fur coat (old, but LOVE this one on sale now), Rebecca Minkoff earrings (old, but similar in silver here), Vita Fede Mini Titan two tone bangle (my is in XS here), Lindberg sunglasses, Nars Matte Lip pencil (crimson red) and bag is from a little shop when I was in Asia two years ago (vegan leather).

Very nice feminine look! Love the ladylike jacket on you. Last year I was lucky to catch a bit of NY Fashion Week and I went to a couple of shows. Same time this year I will be on the West Coast for some well-deserved holidays and I think that's where I'd much rather be ;)

Yun Fan said...

I remember reading about your trip last year! East coast is always freezing during NYFW so I don't blame you rather want to be on the warmer side haha. Which cities will you be visiting this time?

Thanks so much!! I appreciate it!


What a fantastic outfit, I just love the pink and black dress, very bold and lovely. Great NYFW inspiration. I haven't been to NYFW, only been to LFW, so I would love to go to a NY show one day.
