Continuing on with the daily fashion week recaps… if this isn’t your thing, this post makes us more than half way through! Our third day in the big apple started a little later than the previous two which I was so grateful for. Sleep is hard to come by during fashion week after all!
First up, all of the roomies and I started the morning with a photoshoot by Vicki Bartel who so graciously reached out to me prior to fashion week and wanted to shoot together. I love meeting new creatives and supporting each other in this entrepreneur life! After all, it’s what this is all about! I am obsessed with our girl gang photos which remind me of Sex and the City! After our photoshoot, I met with my RewardStyle rep. This was our first time to meet face to face even though we have emailed and talked on the phone for over a year now. In a way it’s like she is my business coach, providing analytics on how my blog is doing and what you all like to shop most. It’s fascinating stuff and extremely helpful to know what works well and what stuff y’all could care less about!
Next up, I headed to the Banana Republic presentation which was madness to say the least. It was a public event which means that thousands of people showed up to see what the event was all about. Thankfully we finally made it in to see the store, catch a glimpse of Olivia Palerma, take a few pictures and dash out to avoid the insane crowd.
After that, Brittany and I decided to walk over to Rent the Runway. My original dress that I had ordered for this night never came in the mail so I was in search of a cocktail dress. I ended up renting this one for the big night but am still in love with this one that never came in the mail 🙁
I met up with Kelly and Kylee next to see what Chinatown was all about. I pulled a rookie mistake and went in uncomfortable shoes so let’s just say that I did not last long! We also stopped by 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar to check out the view (I highly recommend for Sunday Funday) and then ended up back at the food trucks for a fast meal (see my second day recap for details on this).
After this, things got busy as we geared up for a night full of parties. First up for the night was the Lulu’s Style Studio party. It was my second year attending and it did not disappoint. There were cotton candy cocktails, clothing gifting stations, a dance floor and a great view of the city. Unfortunately we did not get to stay long this year as the Liketoknow.it party was scheduled during the same time.
The Liketoknow.it party was so much fun! Getting to actually meet all of the bloggers that you follow via Instagram is crazy and a little eye opening too in the sense that not everyone is who they appear to be on social media. I was in the same room as many of my absolutely favorite fashion inspirations which is pretty darn cool, not to mention the insane party that RewardStyle puts on. There was a 360 photo booth, open bar and a dance floor that I had to refrain myself from busting a move on.
To end the night a group of us were invited to the Philipp Plein fashion show and what a show it was! When we first arrived there were thousands upon thousands of people trying to get in. One look at the crowd and you would have thought there was no way we were going to make it in. Well just as we were about to leave, someone pointed to a gate that was open and we hopped up to the front of the line- woohoo! We climbed our way up to the nosebleed seats in the NYC Hammerstein Ballroom and ended up sitting next to EJ Johnson (who I learned was Magic Johnson’s son-news to me!). The show was beyond amazing with performances by Dita von Teese, Future, and Nicki Minaj.
We ended the night with dollar slices of pizza in our cocktail attire. Something that none of us are above when we are tired, hangry and just watched a bunch of skinny models walk down the runway 🙂
