It’s officially less than 24 hours until I’m back in New York for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S’13 and I could not be more thrilled. Seriously, I haven’t been able to sleep properly for the past week(s), let alone focus on anything else.
I’ll be working behind the scenes for the Joy Cioci show so not only is this going to my first runway show I’ll actually be working, but it gives me an added excuse to wear classic Manhattan colors: black, black and more black.
Luckily, this helped the packing process quite a bit, but left me puzzled when it came to extras (i.e. accessories, footwear – even nail polish!) for a few days. Not to mention that I’ll only be stuffing all of these items into a tiny carry-on in an effort to save a little cash for adventures around the city.
While I want to stay on trend for my trip, I do have some essentials that I could not resist packing that any girl should keep in her suitcase on her way to Fashion Week. You notice an affinity for anything in leopard and oxblood, two of my favorites for the season:
Clockwise starting from the top: Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses. Nicole by OPI Nail Lacqeur in Sealed With A Kris (I bought mine at Target). J Brand Skinny Leg Jeans. Tory Burch Quilted-Leather and Metal Ballet Flats. Longchamp Large Tote Bag. Target Tuxedo Loafers in Burgundy. Dolce & Gabbana Scarf. Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids. Kate Spade iPhone Case.
Seeing any of the shows? Which staples would you pack?
