I knew this was coming. This was one of the very few outfits I had actually planned for New York Fashion Week, but I had a bit of a strange feeling about: either I would be seen as a daring fashionista, or else a complete fashion disaster. You can go ahead and call the fashion police if you’d like, but to my relief, I think I pulled it off just fine.
It’s not everyday you see someone wearing their hair in Princess Lea buns, sporting straight leg-jeans and a turtleneck underneath a maxi dress, only to top it off with a multicolored zig-zag patterned Missoni poncho. What a mouthful. Nonetheless, I’m proud that I took a risk, and while I’m not sure how everyone might have felt about it, I got a sense that some people appreciated my boldness. If you read my New York Fashion Week 2019: Day 1 blog post, then this is a bit of a repeat, but I strongly believe that it’s best to not always try to follow the crowd. Here’s an exact breakdown of what I wore in this look, as I headed to my last show of the season, Rebecca Minkoff:
Kim Shadey Sunglasses
Vintage Emilio Pucci Bag
In my defense, it was my very last shot at ending New York Fashion Week with a bang, and I couldn’t wimp out on this outfit last minute–especially because my friend, whom I brought with me to fashion week, was encouraging me to wear it. You can’t let a friend down, right? Right.
