What I Wore for NYFW.

     This is the outfit that I wore when I attended my very first NYFW show last weekend! (Read all about my experience at the Katie Gallagher Presentation in this post.) I originally had a completely different outfit in mind- this one which I ordered online and paid for rush shipping on so that it would get to me in time. However, it still didn't arrive before I left for NYC, so the night before my trip I ran to the mall and was desperate to find something! I have a whole closet full of clothes, but of course I was worried none of them would "do" for something like NYFW - you feel me ladies?! ;-)

     Luckily I found this skirt at the mall! It is both super comfortable and very flattering, and also kind of makes me look like I have a little bit of a booty, which is a win-win since a booty is not something that I was really blessed with - haha!! After trying on a bunch of tops in the mall, I ended up deciding to pair it with a sequin top and jewelry that I already had. I didn't have any idea if it all would come together - but thank goodness it did! 

      I had planned to share some tips for attending NYFW and networking to attend shows and parties at the end of this post, since this was my first experience with Fashion Week. However- I am super tired and it is past my bedtime as I am finishing this post (#honesty), so that blog post might be coming next week! Is this something y'all would like to read more about? 

     Hope that y'all are having a great start to your weekends! I am having a staycation as a belated birthday celebration with three of my best Charlotte girlfriends this weekend, and I can't wait. :-)
