Jumpsuit: Top Shop (Jumpsuit not listed, similar styles on site), Clutch: Top Shop, Shoes: Top Shop

Pastels are typically a cliche during Spring, so I decided to wear these lighter shaded hues this Winter. This duster coat from ASOS became a great investment and I've been wearing it more often then I thought. Light blue is a color I have yet to try and I happen to like it! I added this sea foam green furry clutch to complete the look. Black was an option, but again I've been trying to stray away from cliches this year and I already have quite a few black purses. Of course I was freezing and my toes were quite numb, but it was all for the sake of fashion! I shot this right outside the apartment I stayed at in Harlem. I liked how my dainty colored outfit juxtaposed the hardness and dirtiness of the streets.

The last show attended was for Chilean designer LUPE GAJARDO, which was the designer's NYFW debut. Her collection offered interesting shillouettes using recycled fabrics such as denim and burlaps.

2 Piece Set: Top Shop, Shoes: Top Shop (currently sold out), Sunglasses: Top Shop, Coat: Zara

Before the OUDIFU show, I went on the streets of Harlem (where I stayed) to do some shopping and got snapped while doing so. I loved this 2 piece jacket and pant combo from Top Shop. Too bad the matching jacket was hidden underneath my Zara coat (which I purchased in NY), but it was too cold to take off! Plus, I loved the pop of color it gave my outfit. I usually don't gravitate towards yellow, but I loved this mustard shade that blended so well with neutrals and other hues. My toes became numb after a while, but the shoes were well worth it after searching all Top Shop locations for them!

The next show I attended was for RTW Chinese luxury brand OUDIFU, designed by Zhuliang Li. Like Carmen Valvo, Li used a neutral toned color story in the collection with pops of color (seems to be the trend for the F/W season.) There were a range of structured and loose separates, dresses, and furs that all had an Oriental influence with a modern twist.

This was the coldest day of the week and of course I decided to wear my least warm outfit. As they say, fashion is pain. A pink monochromatic fit was apart of my Fashion Week wardrobe, but I definitely wore it on the wrong day!


I finally embarked on my virgin voyage to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!  I braved the extremely cold weather in open toe shoes and thin clothing instead of foregoing my strategically planned looks for the occasion. Unfortunately, because of the cold, there wasn't a slew of photographers outside the venue waiting to snap pictures of the best dressed. However, I didn't let the snow and sleet stop me from making the best of my trip and seeing collections for this year's Fall season. Let's just say that this will be the last time I do NYFW this time of year.

The first show I attended was for American designer Carmen Marc Valvo. His collection for Fall 15 was a cohesive blend of cocktail looks and evening dresses that complimented with tailored suits and tuxedos all within a black, grey, and pops of red color scheme.
