NYFW. Today marks the first day of New York Fashion Week and of course, the streets are covered in ice. Ran a little late to my first show this morning (cabs during NYFW = nightmare) and probably looked like Bambi on ice while sliding my way through the crowds outside Lincoln Center, but thankfully, I made it there on time and in one piece!

Hopefully I’ll get a couple of minutes this afternoon to shoot todays outfit but until then, here’s a picture we snapped the other day. This menswear-inspired tuxedo dress from McQ Alexander McQueen is one of the latest additions to my wardrobe and I absolutely love the structured tailoring, so sleek! Played around with the silhouette and layered the dress over a pair of pants and actually really liked the result. Turns out, dresses over pants aren’t actually that bad!

FEBRUARY. The weather gods seems to be having a though time making up their minds about the NYC weather. Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny spring day and this morning the snow was falling down again, arghhh. Was kind of hoping the weather would clear up in time for fashion week, but apparently not. Oh well, at least I got to wear my new boots for one day!

STUPID SNOW. We’ve had some pretty mild, snow free days here in NY and I’ve enjoyed every single one of them (my ankles weren’t even a tad bit cold when we shot these pictures the other day!). I had just started getting my hopes up that winter would magically take a rain check and re-appear next year, but sadly that does not appear to be the case. When I opened up my blinds this morning, the damn snow was pouring down. Crap! Yes, it makes the city look really pretty, but it ruins all the fun (when I show you guys my latest purchase, you will understand my frustration..)

P.S. Will be uploading some new things on my sale shop today as my new purchase left a gigantic hole in my wallet, stay tuned!

COATS. Decided to dust off this good ol’ camel coat that I found at a Zara sale a couple of years ago and take it out for a spin. I didn’t know it then, but over the years it has become one of my favorite coats (tied first place with this stunning ivory one from Emerson Fry) and I’m so happy I didn’t leave it on the rack when I saw the insane line to the register at Zara that day, definitely worth queuing 30 minutes for!
