NEW POST: NYFW Day 1

New York Fashion Week (henceforth referred to as NYFW) is a fun, thrilling, beyond exhausting experience. My days are typically 12+ hours, running all over the city, and typically not eating. It’s a quasi-joke in the fashion industry about people not eating, but during fashion week most people live off of Starbucks and adrenaline. (And maybe, if you’re lucky, one of the events will actually have teeny tiny passed hors d’oeuvres you can munch). 

One of the biggest mistakes I made in the past was not wearing comfortable shoes. Since I don’t live directly in NYC, and I’m not super rich, I cannot survive in cab-to-curb shoes. Thankfully, I snatched up these Dolce Vita booties right before NYFW started, and practically lived in them during the week. 

The coat was a gift from Simply Be (thanks!) and was in rotation with another Simply Be coat (will show up in a future post). The jeans are one of the best pair of jeans I’ve ever worn- and they’re from ASOS! They hug my curves perfectly and so far (even though they’re stretchy) they haven’t stretched out!

I will be posting some of my favorite pictures from my favorite shows I attended (once I narrow them down that is!), and there will be more outfit posts to come as well!

Coat: Simply Be

Jeans: ASOS Curve

Shirt: Old Navy

Boots: Dolce Vita

Hat: NJ Turnpike Rest Stop

Necklace: nOir

Sunglasses: Ray Ban

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!)

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.

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…

While I adore my super long red hair, my scraggly strands were begging for a freshening up. (Who am I kidding? I was desperately overdue for a hair cut.)

Because of my infrequency of hair cuts I felt that it was time to treat myself & no old Super Cuts would do! So, on a recommendation from a friend I scheduled a session with the by-appointment-only Amalia Moscoso.

Being the steamiest day of summer (thus far), it was so refreshing to stroll into the beautifully colorful boutique salon. A hidden gem, Amalia’s salon is tucked away in an office building at the apex of one of the busiest intersections in Soho.

Amalia was sweetly knowledgeable, informing and not lecturing, regarding color care, hair hydration and other valuable hair tips. I explained what I was looking for, and she set right to work, snipping & slicing, a shower of red feathers flying everywhere.

The results? One of the best hair cuts I’ve had in years. My hair feels extremely healthy (despite the bleaching & dying), has better body and movement to it, and is slightly shorter for summer.

If you’re in NYC and in need of a hair cut, blow out, color or extensions, get thee to Amalia.
