Fashion Week Essentials

I can’t believe that another season is upon us, but I’m excited to be back in New York for a few days and to see some familiar faces. I’m slowly working on packing my bags. I have my essentials so far…

Fashion Week Essentials

Faux-Fur Stole The tents are freezing, so a cozy scarf is the perfect way to stay warm.

Over-Sized Sunglasses Along with a large coffee from Starbucks, sunglasses help hide under-eye circles and the “I got no sleep last night but am still here at 8am” feeling.

Volumizing Mascara A quick swipe of mascara (Dior Show is my favorite) is easy enough to apply to my lashes in a taxi ride.

Long-Lasting Perfume A scent that will last from morning to night is essential–my signature pick is Chanel Chance.

Gloves Cheetah-printed gloves mean catching a cab in style.

Quick-Drying Polish A coat of clear polish can keep a pretty manicure intact or temporarily remedy a snagged pair of tights.

Camera A camera is obvious, though I’ve forgotten it in the past!

Watch With a jam-packed schedule, I’m constantly checking the time.

Statement Necklace I always need to add a great piece of jewelry to an otherwise boring LBD. I’m packing this crystal collar one.

Versatile Clutch I love roomy handbags, but I keep it limited to a small clutch during Fashion Week.

Band-Aids Blisters from running around in seven-inch heels are inevitable. How cute are these fashion-forward Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids?

Small Notebook In between texting, tweeting, and Instagraming, it’s nice to jot down notes about the runway looks using old-fashioned pen and paper.

What essentials are in your purse?

    One of my favorite statement necklaces too – It goes with everything.

  6. Your necklace is the prettiest! Seriously, way too rock that bling girl!!! And my handbag staple, def gum. I need gum on me during all times or I just might unleash a mountain full of crazy on everyone. Gum is essential :) P.s. I am so happy I found your blog, my newest obsession!
