Just YESTERDAY (OMG!) I found out that I was headed to a show with New York Fashion Week with Vaseline Spray & Go.  I’m am thrilled!  It’s a great sponsorship opportunity for me but sometimes one of these events happen and I’m all, “whoa this is cool.”  And, “WHAT THE HECK AM I GOING TO WEAR?!?!”

I went to New York Fashion Week two years ago and went to a daytime show.  I remember wearing something stylish but low key – no LBD for mid-day, right?

Since this thing happened so quickly, I decided I would make do with closet clothes.  These were the contenders.

At first I thought about this one.  The blouse is polka-dots with a cool tie/bow thing and then it’s a subtle striped blazer.  Both from White House Black Market.  I thought I was being all tres-chic doing the mix and match pattern thing.  Paired it with an orange Banana Republic Skirt and Vince Camuto wedge heels.

This is a vintage 60s dress and belt that I bought at the coolest little vintage shop at the Jersey shore last year.  It used to look cool on me, I swear, but when I tried it on today I felt like it looked a little frumpy so it’s a no go for tomorrow!

But then I tried this dress on that I bought end of season this summer at Banana Republic and realize I’m just way too mainstreamy as I preferred this.

I so badly wanted to do the Frye boots with it too but it’s supposed to be in the 80s tomorrow and it just feels a *teeny* bit too soon for big boots, right?  Think I’m ending up with this.  Will see if I change my mind tonight but I think it’s fun and it’s comfy yet trendy which is key for a day and evening in New York!:

Same dress, wedge heels and then the white jean jacket for only if I get chilly.  Hopefully I won’t be the only one not wearing booties, which are apparently the thing to wear at this year’s New York Fashion Week. (I just can’t do it man.  I think I’m too old.  Am I the only one who feels this way?)

  1. You look great trying to decided what to wear is such a challenge you are going to have a great time and rock the fashion week.
