NYFW Day 2

Let the craziness commence! We started off bright and early at 7 AM (keep in mind that in Cali it’s 4 AM, I was definitely riding the struggle bus) and got ready for our LONNGGG day of getting ready, blowouts, photoshoots, and after parties. We decided to ditch bagels for breakfast and stuck with Jamba Juice, their oatmeal is actually delicious and so cheap. Not to mention a protein smoothie because after what I ate on travel day... my body needed it!

First stop was Blogger Blowouts with my babes Alison and Kristin, not to mention it was my first blowout EVER! I seriously loved it and now I know how people become obsessed. Wash and dry my hair everyday please! Oh, and style it.  We went to Vidov Salon in New York City, and it was a little salon with the best charm ever!  Arielle styled me and I asked for curls, and she did just that. It was my go to style but I always think hair stylists can do ten times better.

Next we ventured off to the Eliza J. showroom in downtown. If you haven’t heard of them, they are a designer that sells dresses through Nordstrom and they are gorgeous. We got a sneak peak at their upcoming Spring and Summer line that blew me away! I had my eyes on 3 dresses in particular (the one that I'm holding in the picture)  and I can’t wait until it launches! This line definitely made me excited for Spring and Summer.

After Eliza J., it was photoshoot time! We were lucky enough to get invited to Maggy London to shoot some of there London Times fashion and I was lucky to get chosen to shoot some Maggy London dresses! Best part? We got to keep them all! Definitely something you only get to experience once. We were so lucky!!!

Photoshoot, photoshoot, photoshoot!!! We freshened up back at the hotel and went out to shoot with Sydney, at what we were thinking was a park. You know like the ones in the movies that are in New York and have pretty walkways? Well, we made it to the park and it was literally a basketball court... not exactly what we had in mind. We made do with the cross walks though, and the photos actually came out adorable! It ended quickly though because the temperature dropped VERY fast. We ran into a grocery store to wait for our ride to find us because we were way too cold!  Since we were in the area, we stopped at Chelsea Market and ended up in a little restaurant with live music and yummy (ok) food. ;)

Time for the best part- outfit details! Unfortunately my sweater is sold out, but I linked a couple of look a likes and I’ll let you know when it’s back in stock! My coat though... TO DIE FOR! It kept me so warm and can we talk about how fancy it looks?! I felt like such a boss lady! AND it’s on sale right now! It’s a bit pricey but I say it’s worth the splurge. It will last me a couple a years without a doubt. And as for my shoes, those are under $100! Shop the Post below.
