First, I must apologize for the delay in posts, I fell ill last week, which set me back a couple days of posts but good news is that you'll have many more to look forward to this week! So, here are the last couple of updates from my trip to New York for New York Fashion Week.

As soon as I entered the Salon in the Lincoln Center, I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Joe Zee (previous Creative Director for Elle magazine-- but you already knew that)'s news team for his new show on Yahoo Style. Man, the things I wish I could have redone. Haha. Live interviews or live television in general are no walks in the park, let me tell you. I don't like doing things unplanned or unprepared! So, when they told me we'd just be going off the cuff, I freaked out a little inside. And of course, I couldn't hear anyone in my ear piece. Hence my awkward silences. If you would like to see what that looks like, click here. Otherwise, you should still click here to watch the full show! Fashion heads like Aimee Song of Song of Style, DVF, and of course the forever babe and legendary supermodel Iman co-hosts with Joe Zee. You really can't go wrong. If you're looking for a fully loaded fashion hub, packed with model news, runway updates, trends and brands to look for, and in-depth look into the lives and inspirations of individual fashion icons. There is definitely more depth and knowledge than most fashion news shows I've seen, which makes it more interesting to watch.

In other news, I die for these trousers. The trousers to live and die  in this fall/winter 2015 are here. Ready to Fish by Ilja have really taken on the slouchy them and ran with it-- mm my favorite! I'm so glad casual menswear is becoming more prevalent and accepted in everyday fashion so of course to see it on the runways was a treat. I'm looking to wear this with a lot of boyfriend tees, lace bodysuits and twisted belts. Minimal makeup with tomboy looks-- something I can definitely appreciate.

Day 4 was still a chiller but I was over the coats so I opted for a cropped jacket to keep me warm. Of course, I couldn’t go outside the New York cold with a bit of layering so I wore 3 layers top and bottom (once again) to ensure that warmth. Stella and Jamie keeping me warm on top and underneath my Calvin Rucker mesh skirt that was more form over function. Though layering two pairs of leggings on top of one another isn’t the best look for the bum so the draping of the skirt might have definitely helped fixed the shapely butt issue.

Here's a look into some backstage artwork used to represent the full runway show. I was fortunate enough to take a look behind the scenes at Georgine's Fall/Winter 2015 collection.

I had such a blast this year at New York Fashion Week regardless of the freezing cold. There's always so many perks of coming to New York Fashion Week but I definitely think I have learned so much just from this one trip to do it even better the next time. If you'd like to know some things I learned during my trip to New York Fashion Week to keep you FW-ready for next season, leave me a comment down below and I'll see if I can put together a video for y'all. Until then, I hope y'all have a great week!
