NEW POST: NYFW Day Two

Day #2 was cold. Well, all of NYFW was cold, and it was cold last Feb and it will be next Feb. Who decided that having fashion week in NYC in FEBRUARY was a good idea? Seriously… in Sept we’re usually sweating (which is never a good look) and in Feb it always snows and we’re freezing and we can’t even wear our super-cute shoes because of all the gross slush. Blerg.

Well, enough of my #fashionpeopleproblems rant… NYFW Day Two was another fun day of running around, seeing shows, and trying my hardest to be comfy and warm while still being stylish. 

One of the easiest ways to accomplish that is by wearing Duo boots. I am obsessed with Duo, (I now own 5 pairs), and these over-the-knee studded flat boots were my lifesavers during NYFW. And, of course, they worked perfectly with my equally comfy outfit; stretch leggings, an oversized button-down shirt and my stunning new Simply Be coat. My Mr. T-esq neckpiece and must-have Peter Pilotto x Target sunnies completed the look.

Thankfully, an outfit like this carried me from my first show (9 am, ugh!) to my last party that night (Charlotte Ronson)!

Jacket: Simply Be

Top: ASOS

Necklace: Street Vendor

Leggings: Eileen Fisher 

Boots: DUO

Sunglasses: Peter Pilotto for Target

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

It’s New York Fashion Week!

Well, technically NYFW doesn’t start until Thursday, but over the last few seasons I’ve had more and more shows beginning on Wednesday! So I will be sorta off the grid for about a week, but you can follow my fashion week updates on Twitter or Instagram (thelizblack). I will be conducting a lot of interviews, posting runway shots, party photos and more!

Here are a few examples of highlights from previous seasons.

Interviewing Carolina Herrera. (She told me she loved my hair & then invited me to her show!)

Watching Cyndi Lauper sing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” at the Betsey Johnson retrospective/birthday party.

Watching Betsey & Cyndi take a bow after the retrospective. (And what we thought at the time was Betsey’s last show.)

Having fun at the Charlotte Ronson party last season.

Chilling with my blogger girls, Margie & Gabi!

Interviewing Johnny Weir after he skated during a show.

(And oh, so much more! So tune in here, instagram or twitter to see what’s happening during Fashion Week!)

(Sorry for the immense post delay! I have been beyond swamped since NYFW… I started a new day job this week, we are moving to Jersey City at the end of Oct and sadly, I’ve been dealing with some intense family health issues. But anyway, on to the fashion!)

NEW POST: Cabiria at NYFW (plus me, lookin’ all fancy-schmancy)

This was QUITE the busy fashion week for me! I accumulated around 70 invites (obviously I didn’t make them all), but I made as many as humanly possible! Some of my favorites this season were Charlotte Ronson, Zimmermann, Koonhor, Candela, KYE, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Ostwald Helgason (who will have a collection with ALDO coming soon!), Tadashi Shoji, Tia Cibani, Ann Yee, and of course, Cabiria, the FIRST EVER plus collection to show at the tents at NYFW!

Cabiria had an AMAZING response, and I barely was able to squeeze in my interview for Refinery29 because SO many people were clamoring to speak to the designer, Eden Miller. You can read my article and interview here.


For this outfit (and don’t worry, there are more NYFW outfit posts on the way!) I knew I wanted to pair this high-waist wet look skirt and crop top together, but the bag was a purchase from the night before at the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launch party, so that was a last-minute outfit addition. I actually had my photo taken by a few different blogs and websites that day, so I guess the look was a hit!

After the Cabiria show I had a little time to kill, so I went up to the Tresemme booth, and the amazingly talented hairstylist Katie Neutz created this amazing Veronica Lake-esq style. People gushed about my hair the entire day… I SO wish I had the skillz to replicate it!

Fashion people say the darndest things, don’t they? I was fortunate enough to cover New York Fashion Week this season for the amazing, fashion-forward website, I Like What You’re Wearing. While running around Lincoln Center, Milk Studios, the Piers, and countless other venues, I couldn’t help but put together a list of some of the most fashion-y things I overheard.

Top 12 Outfits of 2012 (And 1 for Good Luck!)

Hard to believe that almost a full year has passed since I started my style blog (I officially launched it in mid January of 2012.) I’ve had so many exciting sartorial moments over the last year; two seasons of New York Fashion Week, two Full Figure Fashion “Weeks” (NJ & NYC), tons of fabulous events- both plus-size & straight-size, contributing to LuckyMag.com, becoming Refinery29's newest plus-size contributor, being shot for a style feature on Refinery29… the list just goes on.

But, on top of those awesome experiences, I also had some fabulous fashion moments as well. It was a good year for….

While 2012 was a fantastic year for SO many different reasons, I’m still thrilled to ring in 2013. I just can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me!

Also, a big thanks to all of my readers! I appreciate your support, comments and questions, and I hope 2013 proves to be a fashionable year for you all!

xoxo

Spotted During NYFW

It was disgustingly hot & humid during the first half of NYFW, so finding a light & airy outfit was key to fashion survival. I wore a similar outfit before (different, shirt, bag & shoes) but I felt it was perfect to break out in the heat of Fashion Week. And apparently others liked it as well; I was snapped by several different photogs that day. Here is just one of many to come.

Shirt: Old Navy (Size XXL)

Skirt: ASOS (Size 14)

Sandals: DV (Size 9)

Bag: Urban Outfitters

New York Fashion Week

NYFW starts this week! Technically it starts on Thursday, but my Fashion Week will be starting on Wednesday, with 7 shows, a film premiere, and the Style Awards!

I will be updating my blog frequently with pictures from shows & events, reviews from the shows, backstage footage, and whatever else comes my way that is worth sharing with you all! Keep checking back for updates!

I will also be uploading all of my NYFW images to my flickr account, so while you’ll only see the best of the best on the blog, you can catch up with everything on flickr!

Some of my favorite past NYFW moments:

The actually real wedding at Imitation of Christ

My first experience with Katie Gallagher

My first Betsey Johnson show (right after McQueen passed)

Seeing the androgynous model Andrej Pejic modeling a collection my friend Lauren Rae Levy styled

Watching Zoe Kravitz do a 1920s style dance during the Erickson Beamon ready-to-wear & jewelery presentation

Being at the Betsey Johnson afterparty

The clothes (and shoes) (and presentation) at Sally LaPointe

My first experience with The Blonds

…I could go on forever…
