NYFW: Channeling Carrie Bradshaw

Hey you, MondayMy days are terribly mixed up right now because of New York Fashion Week. There’s a happy-kind-of-chaos here, in that dreams are happening and I’m experiencing a lot of firsts [like channeling Carrie Bradshaw crossing a busy street]. A girl can dream, right?!

Over the last few days, my team + I have been running around the city to different shows. We’re doing our best to freeze moments in time — there’s so much magic happening around us.

I’m really grateful to be here, and even more grateful for this space to share the experiences with you. Wander through NYFW with me…

The Highlight: I had the chance to chat backstage with Lubov Azria, the creative genius behind BCBG and Herve Leger. I’ll share more from our interview [+ a video] late in the week, but her passionate personality stood out to me most. She’s a woman who’s immensely proud of her work, reminding us all to create our own success story.
