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!
