Black & Bold

by Jessica Sturdy on February 18, 2014

Day Two of Fashion Week was kind of insane. (Please promise me that you’ll read Hallie’s recap here. I’ve read it about 30 times and I still die laughing. I mean, crying and snorting laughing. You have to read it.)

It was a jam-packed day… Zimmermann show at 9am, Rebecca Vallance presentation at 9:30, Kate Spade presentation at 1pm, a showroom trip to check out the latest from Torn By Ronny Kobo and Twenty TeesNoNoo show at 4pm, a trip to the Jack Rogers showroom, Nicole Miller show at 6pm, Charlotte Ronson presentation at 7pm, and then the Charlotte Ronson after party until the wee hours of the morning.

Nicole Miller let me borrow this amazing watercolor dress to wear to her show and I absolutely LOVED it! From the fit & flare shape, to the punchy colors, to the sheer mesh panels at the waist, it was the perfect day-to-night dress.

Your hair looks amazing in this picture! Can’t believe that leather jacket is under $100. Hallie’s recap is seriously hysterical…I tweeted about it yesterday and now my Dad is reading her blog… awkward, yet awesome?

You look so chic.

I know fashion week is a whirlwind, but just being there must be incredible. The experiences, the people, the atmosphere, the memories…you must have many incredible memories from fashion week.

I have a new post up about how wearing lace with some outfit inspiration too.
