Day two of fashion week started out with an early morning shoot with Ban Avenue Photography at the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s a Christmas miracle that Kylee and I were only 30 minutes late after the night we had before. Not sure if advil, water or coffee was getting the MVP title that morning. The pictures from that shoot will be on the blog Monday along with a blog takeover by my girl Kylee so make sure to check it out!
After our shoot, we made our way over to Amika in Brooklyn to get our hair done for the day. The retro style salon had a cool vibe and I decided to go with statement curls and a french braid. I use Amika’s dry shampoo on the reg so I was excited to see how they would style my hair! I might add that we also stopped at Starbucks and grabbed our first PSL (pumpkin spice latte) of the season. Definitely a note worthy occasion!
Next up, we headed back to our hotel, changed into something a little more comfortable to run around the city in. RewardStyle was hosting a come and go party at a rooftop location so we stopped by there to mingle with bloggers, throw back some champagne and take yet another rooftop pic (because the limit does not exist when it comes to NY rooftop pics!).
Our first productive meeting of the day was with Bauble Bar, my hands down favorite place for trendy accessories. I might as well buy stock in the company since I own half of their jewelry collection. It was my second time attending their showroom and it never disappoints! If you are in the industry and heading to New York at some point, I highly suggest stopping by.
Outside of Bauble Bar we found a little slice of heaven, aka food truck heaven. This traveling food truck market is open until September 23rd right outside of Madison Square Park. If you haven’t gotten the gist already, fashion week is chaos and food is not a priority (shocking, I know). So stumbling upon fast and good food was a total blessing. We loaded up on empanadas: mac and cheese empanadas, pulled pork empanadas, curried chicken empanadas, etc.
For the rest of the evening we changed once more into a more cocktail attire and met up with blogger friends at the Roof at South Park. One of my Houston blogger friends, Dawn, put together a happy hour so that all of us could get together and catch up on our fashion weeks so far. So many Houston blogger friends went to fashion week this year so it was so fun getting everyone together plus all of our new friends in a different city. Yash, our Houston photographer and good friend met up with us to take pictures outside of the event which is where the above pictures were taken. After drinks, all of the roomies (Britt, Kelly, Kylee and I) ended the night at Butter, an extremely nice and yummy restaurant. Check out my fabulous roomies below!
I had planned to go to two shows (Katie Gallagher and Cindy Motiero) this day but my schedule just did not allow for it 🙁 I’ve learned for the coming years that I will put more thought into planning out my schedule. While I love going to shows during fashion week, events and parties where I get to meet new people and make lasting memories are where I would prefer to spend my time.
Thank you all for letting me relive my fashion week experience with all of you! Tomorrow on the blog I will be recapping day 3. If you like these sort of posts and would like to see more, you can view all of my NYFW posts here.
