NYFW Diary: Strutting Through the City

I’m finally feeling back to my routine after a whirlwind New York Fashion Week [which inevitably spans longer than a week]. The blisters on my feet are fading away and my eyes are beginning to look less puffy sans concealer. All good signs of a successful trip!

I love sharing this journey with you year after year, because it’s never something I anticipated for myself when I started blogging. This little corner of mine slowly evolved into working alongside creative minds and beautiful brands, and I’m constantly reminded life is ever-changing. Opportunities shift, passions shift, dreams shift.

I hope you enjoyed hopping between shows and meetings and events with me [via snapchat and Instagram]. Indulge in the more polished side of it all — the outfits, the glam, the runways — while knowing none of this is ever quite as calm as it looks…

PS. thanks to the talented Cibelle Levi, who snapped away in the midst of the chaos!
