February means a variety of things to a Fashion Blogger. It means New Year’s Eve has come and passed and we’re sticking to our resolutions of walking more, being prepared, and staying hydrated. It means Fashion Week is our life for seven days straight, and our day-to-day is filled with runways and events. It means it’s cold as all get out, so we’ve got to carry our big bags filled with necessities (such as flats, lipstick, and the official hydrator, smartwater.)
Because we’re at our tenth season of New York Fashion Week, we sometimes find ourselves scraping for inspiration. What will make this season stand apart from the rest? How will we find influence in our everyday lives to excite us for this major event? As we head out of our East Village apartment, we find all the musings we were looking for. From retro concert halls, to comedy cellars, to hidden restaurants, we witness authentic style of all walks of life.
An old lady with a pushcart reminds me I should combine red and leopard print more. A young man in suspenders reminds me I should take more risks. We shouldn’t always have our faces in our phones, tablets, and computers – we should be on the street soaking in the real world’s style.
