I wore this Friday morning of NYFW. We didn’t have any shows until the afternoon, Rebecca Minkoff & Todd Snyder. We walked to breakfast and then around our hotel. It was a gorgeous morning, cool enough for my jacket, but still warm enough with the sun for bare legs. A perfect fall-ish day in my book.
The afternoon turned hectic, we got to Lincoln Center early enough to capture some amazing street style and then headed inside to see if I could get my mom a ticket to Rebecca Minkoff, which turned out to be a joke as everyone else and their mom (literally) had standing room tickets. I waited in two separate lines and thankfully was in the front portion of my line that they let in once everyone had been seated. Once I entered the theater I made way for the stairs but a PR rep stopped me and said to go across the room, as there were seats that needed filling. I didn’t need to be told twice. A seat at Rebecca Minkoff? Yes. Her show brought us a live performance by Janelle Monáe and the most beautiful & festive clothes and heeled gladiator sandals. Did I mention that I also had a perfect view of Olivia Palermo, Louise Rose, Jamie Chung, and Kelly Osbourne. Another moment for the books. It’s crazy how I spent over an hour waiting for the fifteen minute show, but it was well worth it.
Between shows, my mom and I grabbed lunch across the street and stumbled upon a Vogue party and left with some very generous gift bags. Oh, the adventures we have when we come to NYC. Following a quick stop to Zara where we did a bit of window shopping, we headed back to the tents for Todd Snyder. While waiting in line to be let into the presentation I spotted Jenna Lyons being interviewed and spied the Jonas Brothers being escorted into the Box. A perfect end to our time at the shows.
Afterwards we took a bicycle cab thanks to Pop Chips home, a walk that our aching feet just could not handle. We then swapped our heels for converse and headed to Rockefeller Center for a late night dinner. It was a long day for us but we enjoyed every minute of it.
