The streets are alive with the energy of the fashion-obsessed youth who dance around till all hours of the morning. There is no way to describe this energy, you just have to be here. In all my photos and posts, (especially those about New York) I try to capture this energy and feeling. I want you to be right there with me, swallowed by New York. It's hard, because an outfit post will never show you what it actually feels like to be in the energy and madness that is NYFW. But luckily, I've become really good friends with the talented photographer, Jen Senn. I feel like she actually has somehow found the way to capture things just as they are, with taste and aesthetic. It was fun going from party to party with her and just not caring and letting lose. This post is not meant to be perfect, and it's not meant to sell you anything. Hopefully you can feel what it's like to be in New York with these photos, and they offer you a sneak peek into the side of fashion week you never get to see.

I wanted to stick with my black + white/mod vibes. The night before a giant box of YRU shoes arrived at my door, so of course I had to rock a pair. I really love these zip up black platforms. They're super comfortable and can match with just about anything. The last day of fashion week was also the final day I did my instagram takeover for Zero UV, so of course I had to rock a pair of their sunnies. I also pulled my UNIF neoprene jacket and Paul's boutique bag to create my Mod-in-London look.

Shooka and I took the day pretty easy, aka we were basically over it. We hung at the Ace Hotel with our friend, sipped on some champagne and ate a fancy restaurant before heading to a party at the James Hotel. Having my best friend there really made it amazing! Shooka and I are sad we're not at London Fashion Week right now, but best believe you will be seeing us there next year. I'm actually thinking of heading to London next month or the following one just to check it out and visit some of the brands I work with there. I've only been to Paris (where I did a year of school) and actually never made it to London. I'm super exciting to see it/ this black and white mod look featuring two London-based clients of mine was really inspiring for the day-dreamings of a trip!

NYFW was amazing as always. I was surrounded by so many wonderful and talented friends, which really makes it beautiful.

The day started with front row seats at the beautiful Darkoh menswear show. Probably one of my favorites this season, the designer started with a bang, and three aqua suits. Had a girl feeling like she found the Ken to her Barbie. But really, each suit was killer and I was just sitting there like, "why do I not run around in mini suits?"

Next we headed to the Lincoln Center for more menswear. We shot our looks then headed to a restaurant across the street for afternoon cocktails and appetizers. Then it was a ride down to the Standard Hotel where we saw the Maison Kitsune presentation. The sunset was beautiful as it filled the room with light. The whole collection had this really effortless french vibe, which made me miss Paris.

After that we headed to Tao for the Nylon party. There I met the owner of Nylon, Mark and the Jonas Brothers! So many other great blogger friends of mine were there too and I'm lucky I was literally able to get a plus five for all my friends (I don't really think that was allowed.) We drank and dance and took pictures in the amazing Rebel Fashion photobooth.

And believe it or not, the night did not end there. We ended up back at the Standard Hotel for the Maison Kitsune after party at Le Bain. The roof was gorgeous at night and the view of the city from there is incomparable to any other.

Needless to say, Shooka and I spent most of the following day in bed. Skipping two shows, ordering food, and working from out computers in my bed. It actually felt good to have some time to relax.

Anyways I'm off to get ready for my show at the Lincoln Center at noon! Thanks to everyone who has been following me this week, it's been a whirlwind!

Sheena showed a collection of pastel leathers and amazing cuts. She had long leather jackets and cropped leather jackets in baby blue, baby pink and white. My favorite look of the show was when she paired a white leather jacket and bodysuit with snake print thigh-high boots. It was amazing! (And I wanted to be a blonde super hero in that outfit!) 

After that show we headed to Milk studios to see the menswear presentations. Everything was so funky and fun. I really love what Milk does for fashion week, so my speed.

After that we went to the Caravan Styling Studios party and dance while snacking on delicious vegan food! It's been so nice having an entire crew of friends at every event. It makes fashion week so much more fun when you're surrounded by laughs and love.

NYFW DAY THREE

SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCThe third day of fashion week was spent almost entirely at the Dream Hotel. I was feeling the mod vibes (and the lazy vibes) again so I decided to go with an all black and white outfit. I figured these Jeffrey Campbell thigh-high boots would be the perfect thing to compliment my new Missguided romper. I felt like a little mod doll and spent the afternoon sipping a margarita and eating delicious guacamole at the Dream Hotel.

I also figured it was the perfect day to pull out my new Paul's Boutique bag. They were kind enough to sponsor Shooka and I for fashion week. I adore the shape and color of this bag. I also though the orange offered a cool pop of color into the look.

I had a great evening out, hitting about four different events and not getting home until three in the morning (ugh!) Anyways, Shooka and I also shot some cool film photos that I'm hoping to develop tomorrow and share with you guys soon!

I don't know why exhaustion has hit me already, but it came in with full force yesterday. 14-hours of running around from show, to event, back to show, to showroom is serious. Perhaps it's because the 4 days prior to this, I isolated myself and just read, relaxed, meditated and did yoga, that this scheduled is a shock to my system. No complaints, it's just a very different way of spending a day.

Anyways, the day started with the Sally La Pointe show. Certainly my favorite collection I've seen so far, this spring is all about big belts, basics, black and white for her. I love the simplicity of the flats with each look. The jackets and the way everything fit was just phenomenal. The final outfit was killer, featuring a huge feather design with a moto jacket in all white. I can't wait to pull some pieces and shoot them with my darling, Brittanny.

Next we headed to the Sequin-NYC showroom to pick up some jewelry for the week, just missing the Buffalo Jeans relaxation party (ugh, I really needed a fresh manicure!) Then we headed down to Chinatown after that for the Martin Keehn presentation. He's one of the designers represented by OMEN PR here in New York, which means that all the edgy/chic bitches come out to play. Everyone in line looked so fierce, and it was good to see some friendly faces.

My best friend flew in yesterday as well, and in true exhausted fashion, we ended the night early with ordering sushi to my bed while watching the L word on Netflix.

I'm feeling recharged today, time to get ready for shows and a photo shoot!

800-1 800-2 fw1 fw222 fw333 IMG_0161 copy IMG_0206 copy IMG_0218 copy IMG_0238 copy IMG_0248 copyWhat's the best part about living in New York and working in fashion? We're already here when NYFW happens. No jet lag, no failed taxi rides, no getting lost on the subway-- we're New Yorkers and we're ready.

Phil and I got up bright and early this morning and headed to the Lincoln Center to make the morning show that kicks everything off, BCBG. The collection is so different from the past three seasons. It really offers a much more soft and dreamy vibe for this season, something I was not particularly expecting.

Perhaps it's only because fall is looming here on the East Coast, but I'm prepared to see edgy shapes, big glasses, cool prints, and strong looks. MOD is they key word here, I want to see mod everything. I can't tell you guys how happy I am that this is back in style. I was texting with my dad yesterday (classic rock n roller) asking him for advice and inspiration on the mod trend. He of course immediately dropped names like The Beatles, The Who, and the The Rolling Stones. British invasion bands and Twiggy is what I'm looking to for outfit direction this season. He also told me to check out Bowie's "Pinups" album which is a retooling of the mod 60s in style and song.

So today my look was obviously inspired by some mod trends. I pieced together this black and white look from all over the internet! My romper is from Nasty Gal, my fur is from the Los Angeles based brand Bsable and my glasses are by the Aussie brand, Quay. My clutch is from Culture Riot and my shoes are of course, Jeffrey Campbell.

I'm so excited to attend two more shows tonight and thankful to have Phillip by my side all week capturing all the adventure! Stay tuned for updates!

Decided to bring in the third day of New York Fashion Week with a blonde bang. Strutting in a full look from Miss KL, I'm obsessed with my base layer which is this thin slip dress from RVCA. My bag is of course by Jeffrey Campbell, such a dope piece to carry around all of my fashion week needs. But perhaps the best part of this look is DEEZE boots. I feel like I could murda fa$hion bitches in these heels made of gold metal. I had a second row seat at Herve Leger, and had to say that this is the first show of the season that I've actually really liked the clothing/style. I could see myself walking around Manhattan in his dresses, leathers and furs. Perhaps cause he's a badass after my own heart.

NYFW DAY TWO: Rainbow Space Alien

by Rachel Lynch in , ,

Today I was feeling like a rainbow space alien, obviously. Hehe, but really, getting a little extra sleep this morning before another big day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week never felt so good! I think I actually felt like wearing color because I woke up without an alarm, prayed and was able to grab a big peanut butter latte from the shop across the street before even thinking about fashion. Nothing like a peaceful morning to get you mentally prepared for the day.

While getting ready, I switched between Bassnectar and Emanicpator which got me in the mood to put on this Over the Rainbow Lakehouse tee by Wildfox  from their new Daisy's Girls collection. It matches perfectly with the kitten pink shades by them, but I like to call them my alien shades. Finally, I knew it was time to pull out the glitter platforms. I've been waiting to wear these babies for a while now and today finally felt like the day!  My dad calls me Jean Simmons when I wear them and I when I texted him a picture of my outfit today, he said I looked like Jean Simmons X Marlo Thomas. We used to love watching the show "That Girl" together, mostly because my dad says I remind him of her.

But voila, you have the tips to get your rainbow space alien look! Now it's time to get ready for the Nastygal party in Williamsburg tonight, can't wait!!
