Officially my first day at the Mercedes Benz tents (second for NYFW) and I'm already feeling nostalgic. Over the past few seasons I've covered multiple shows as the Fashion Editor for Triple The Focus magazine, and had the experience I always imagined before moving to NYC. I've heard many talks about the great times at Bryant Park, and with Sex and the City being an all time favorite, I can surely respect that; but Lincoln Center gave me my first fashion week high and for me it will always be home.
On my second day I was scheduled to see MONGOL and Mark & Estel (reviews of all the shows will be in the next issue of the magazine and I will post each here as well). Outfit planning this season was a challenge with the brutally cold weather but fashion always prevails no matter what! (click images to expand)
I decided to do a rocker-chic look this day; ready for Fashion Week domination. I bought these amazing Monika Chiang leather thigh high boots before my month long vacation in the tropics, so I was aching to wear them. As we all know thigh high boots are having a major moment this Fall/Winter season. I paired them with a leather romper from Forever21, a classic ripped knit turtleneck sweater from the New York & Company and an edgy leather moto vest by 6 Shore Road. The look was accessorized with a pair of Ray-Bay wayfarers, an ASOS beanie, Moschino leather belt, Bulova watch and Gucci Soho Disco bag. My vintage SAKS Fifth Avenue fur coat was the final piece for a fashionable but functional, freezing second-first day.
What do guys think about the rocker-chic look? We'd love some feedback and subscribe to our blog to keep up with our posts.
