flannel – Levi’s / denim – Diesel / sunglasses – Cutler & Gross
So after our week and some days in The Hamptons (which I still of course have to share) we decided to head down to New York for a night before heading back home! Prior to heading to NY we did some shopping and I found two things I have now not stopped being obsessed with! First, is without a doubt this Levi’s flannel that literally gives me Saint Laurent proportion shivers (a few people actually asked me if it were Saint Laurent) and I was like! LOL NOPE!!! Paid about a thousandth of the price and looking just as good haha!! And then there is this Prada moment that… No.. Can we please just take a few seconds to inhale, exhale and give our YASSSSSESSSSSSS!!!! Can’t wait to give this a full lewk for the Couture shows in January!!!!
Hey guys!! If you’ve been following me on social media today then you will know I JUST landed in New York for the official BALMAIN for H&M launch event tomorrow!

I have to say this has really been one of my favourite New York Fashion Week’s thus far! I really feel like as a business I am moving at my own pace (which is such a blessing) – I’ve come to support shows and designers that I have relationships with so my schedule isn’t fully packed and I’m not drained trying to run from North, South, East, West! I’ve really been able to connect deeper with the brands, agencies & people this season! It’s really been such a dope season! This by far is one of my favourite looks which I wore for the Diesel Black Gold Fall/Winter 2015 runway show – Which I can’t wait to share with you. Another favourite from fashion week? My trusty HP Stream 7. If you’ve been following me for some time now then you know that more then likely when I am in New York for Fashion Week I am teaming up with HP! One of my longest lasting relationships and brand partnerships where I share and showcase a new/current HP device! This season it was the tablet which I really have to say came in handy in more than one occasion. I loved the smooth Windows 8 interface (I have a thing for Windows 8 ;)).. I also love that as of right now the HP Stream 7 is the most inexpensive Windows 8 device on the market at $99, which is quite crazy considering it fully runs Windows 8 software! It is literally having a computer in the palms of your hand.. From the quality of the screen display to the speed of the browsing it really came in handy. I think what personally came in handy the most for me was the fact that it runs Microsoft Word & etc. efficiently and since I don’t carry my laptop when I am on the go it was the perfect accessory to carry while on the go and while needing to work on show and event reviews and finish proposals and other documents I had deadlines for while on the go! On that note, what’s great is that it also comes with a 1 year subscription of Microsoft Office as part of the purchase which is so great! Really, considering the price of $99 it’s a seriously useable device! Definitely something I do not have a problem recommending to future tablet shoppers!
Could you believe this was my first season attending a BCBG runway show during all the times I’ve been coming to New York Fashion Week? That being said, I was undoubtedly left in such an amazing mood after this early morning show! I really enjoyed how unexpected I felt everything was, from the beautiful fringe details to the fur paneled jackets, to the navajo-esque inspired embroidered, prints and patterns that made their way throughout the collection.
Personally I can’t exactly put a percise and pinpointed finger down on one signature style I grabbed from this collection but I definitely understand the perspective and the point of view. From my stance this collection is culmination of indigenous inspirations, eastern European functionality and cool girl chicness. I love the styling almost as much as I love the coats. The coats were such a standout for me and definitely must have pieces when they hit stores.
