Fashion Week Freakout

I started thinking about wardrobe possibilities for Fashion Week and had a minor freakout this weekend. Over the next week, I'm scheduled to cover nearly 40 shows and will need twelve outfits. My style is pretty simple, and even though I'm no front-row A-list starlette, I'd love to dress with a little more expressive flair for a few days. It's sort of funny looking at my preliminary choices side by side; very black and white, right?

As I said in a previous post, my fairy godmother for the week is the designer behind the brilliant brand, CRHEE, who lent me a few wonderful pieces to fill in the sartorial gaps in my wardrobe. Thank you, Chrissy. You're a lifesaver...

Keep watching this space for NYFW coverage starting Wednesday night. I can't wait to share the madness with you.

I like your choices, my favourite would be the top right picture, angular lines. Lovely colours too. On fashion week, I shall be in London smiling at the mayhem from afar and shaking my head. I think "Fashion Week Freakout" is a very apt title. 40 shows?? Does one not get jaded?

P.S. You look chic and I like your haircut.

Midtown Girl said...

40 shows - wow & damn!! You should do a behind the scenes video too chickie - how fun!

Love the Miu Miu booties. How about a cinched menswear trouser with a sheer top?

XOXO Loving the pics!!

Talisa said...

very good outfits :)

alexkeller said...

you look fab and can i borrow the miu miu boots?

konstantine said...

i love the top right outfit best, but they all look amazing!

Leia said...

I love all your outfit possibilities! The neutral colors you have chosen helps accentuate the interesting shapes/textures of the pieces you are wearing. You are going to look amazing - have a fantastic time at FW! Wish I could be there :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I love the top with the attached vest. So fab. And I love both pairs of shoes!! :)

Diana said...

You are a hard working woman! I would flip out and go fetal just looking at my closet! I'm sure anything you choose will look great and impress the masses. So far, so great!

I have a lot to say(I think) so brace yourself! Hold on tight to your chair or stool or whatever your using to sit on! First...I remember when you tweeted about changing your background and having some guy do it for you. It ended up amazing! I love it! So professional and just fashion-y! I have always liked that pattern! Moving on. Lucky your going to the fashion shows! Moving on. Your really pretty in real life...I have never seen you before this post. LOL. I sound like a creep don't I? I will stop now. You have such a great taste in shoes...not even funny! I love both shots where you show your shoes! You say you use a lot of white, grey and black...you do, but you use it in creative ways! For example the see through pants that you have in the fourth picture...very creative and unique and cool! I love all the looks! 12 outfits! That's super fun! All that shopping!

This is going to be SO cool. Can't wait for the coverage!

The Haute-Shopper said...

The top two looks are my favorite... great of CRHEE to help with the outfits! I don't plan on doing an FW shows this year and if so, it would be a one-off (or perhaps two to four-off) of a designer I liked... if I get back in time from my crazy travel schedule this month. I did what most people do in the past when it came to outfits... wore something from every designer who's show I was attending (in some cases, generous stylists would lend me stuff as well). If all else fails, I'd go for something neutral... which is what I'd say you're wearing now. Have fun!

janettaylor said...

I love all of them! Perfection!

XoXo

jaassnnaa said...

Piney said...

Ooh both pairs of shoes look amaazing! Best of luck in the coming week and have a blast, you look great! :-)

Taylor Sterling said...

I like the clothes. Simple, but very stylish. I think I would try to look very classic and stylish without trying to stand out too much. I mean no one would know me anyways. I am so excited to see and read all about it!!

Claudette said...

I know what you mean! I'm panicking about what to wear for fashion week too. Don't want to look like i've tried to hard, but still want to be noticed.

nookie said...

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

Hello on a monday evening.

Mon Dieu... 40 shows and twelve outfits... and the looks you showed are all so fashionable!!!!

I´m sure you will look great at every show you will appear...
YOU LUUUUCKYYYY GIRL!!!!!

What would I wear?
That´s the 1-million-dollar- question!;)

Guess something in my mind I still cannnot call mine ..hihi...
still searching for a Lanvin ete 03dress-
Maybe I would choose IM booties, black leggings, Rick Owens dress/top and Balenciaga motorcycle jacket.
... but I have only this look for 1 show so what can I do with the next 39 shows to come ;)

Have a beautiful day!!!

MizzJ said...

40 shows?! You're def going to need a vacation after that schedule! lol. You're so lucky to be able to go and I'm sure whatever you wear, you'll look great.

WendyB said...

I especially like the second look.

chrissyrhee said...

You look great in all the outfits! My favorite is the 2nd look. I'm crazy about those baggy grey pants. Can't wait to see your other fashion week choices!

A little Princess said...

Oh wow you're going to be pretty busy there! Your Asos trousers are fab and your shoes selection is inducing great envy xoxo

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

great choices. sometimes people think fashion week and overdo it.

Leigh said...

i love love love love the first two looks! either of those seem like they'd be perfect with some big ole sunglasses and a messy updo.

i think you could definitely pull off more layering if needed (who knows what the weather will do), so maybe a slouchy sweater or a scarf would work too.

can't wait to read all about it!

Jill Pilgrim said...

Love all of the outfits, but I'm especially lusting after those sheer trousers. Gorgeous.

hannahlizabeth said...

you're so lucky to be going!

i would take some killer accessories to vamp up basic pieces - accessories are great when you have to choose outfits from a suitcase :)

xx

myedit said...

I will probably be wearing trackpants and a tee as I check the shows online... not nearly as chis as you:)

Miss Neira said...

i love the booties! theyre definitely standing out!

...love Maegan said...

I would FREAK OUT TOO! These are fab, stylish and comfy choices though. eeek. the stress of it all ;) have fun

Hawa said...

lucky girl!! i love all your choices sans the bottom left hand corner, but thats because those kinda skirts stump my height!....interchangable pieces are always a good option, dont forget to add some colour...tres chic indeed!

saralovesshoes said...

your outfits look great! so chic!

Livie said...

omg you look incredible! crazy about those sheer pants and the comme des garcon skirt. and effortlessly cool.

40 shows - that's going to be a whirlwind and tons of fun. I can't wait to see every last detail.

Etrapar said...

kisses

Eva Internazionale said...

These outfits are perfect for fashion week. Very creative!

Velo said...

dapper kid said...

40 shows?! That is soooo insanely cool :) I am loving that second and last outfit. Hope you're having a lovely day :)

daisychain said...

Oh gosh, I'd be a nightmare trying to work out what to wear. Whatever you choose though, no doubt you'll look fantastic.

Chessa! said...

I love these looks. amazing. for other ensembles I think it's all about accessorizing. you will be fabulous no matter what you wear.
looking forward to seeing you tonight! and, cannot wait for all the fashion week madness and coverage!

Mira said...

I would lose the Eryn Brinie top! Too many white black separates. Add some color, do you have anything that is sleeveless, tough and metallic? Wear your Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, definitely. And those CRHEE sheer trousers are the jam, where can your readers purchase those? What about that harness vest you own? Don't forget a pair of sunglasses.

Mira said...

Most importantly: don't forget your signature sequins!

The Anthology said...

You look so gorgeous!

40 shows?!?! How exciting. I have absolutely no idea what I would wear to fashion week. But it's the kind of riddle that's such a pleasure to solve, isn't it?

Sheena said...

I'm loving your outfit choices. And I really like the Comme skirt as well. 40 shows is a lot! I'm sure you will have a positively wonderful time. Can't wait to see your coverage.

Eyeliah said...

Hanako66 said...

Kristin said...

You look gorgeous. And I guess I should stop saying how jealous I am of you. Ah ha. The Miu Miu booties are soooooo yummy!

Lynn said...

Eden said...

you don't have anything to be worried about when you head to the tents! i LOVE your outfit choices.. like super love! can't go wrong with basic neutrals in far out shapes-- very chic and you really really look the part.

in other news, how drool-worthy is that?! 40 shows?! make sure to post pics!

much love

eden

vitaMinn style said...

40 shows?! You are the envy of everyone right now!

Love all your outfit choices, most especially the first! It's got an edgy cool vibe to it! =)

nicole said...

wow, 40 shows, that's awesome! I'm going to somehow vicariously attend those 40 shows through you so take lots of photos! haha

love the outfits you posted here, esp the skirt and vest from the first 2 photos. I'm a big fan of monochromatic colours so go all out with the black/white/grey!

have fun at NYFW!

I think you look hot in everything. How did you manage to get to 40 shows?? I'm super impressed and jealous, girl!

fashion herald said...

Whew, 40 shows, I'm seriously impressed! I don't even have 20 and I'm looking to my co-workers for back-up. And I think you've got the look down perfect. Black and white for running around nyc all day is a great choice.
And it wouldn't be Fashion Week if there was no pre-fashion week clothing freakout.

PinkBow said...

some fab fashion choices, hope they're working well for you :)

Wicked Halo said...

you rock that vest girl!
