It's Fashion Week and I'm kind of avoiding it.
Here's the thing with being a (mostly personal style) blogger during Fashion Week: people either love you or hate you because of what you do. You're either seen as a narcissistic amateur or a creative influencer with a cool, creative brain (with a lot of page views which = coverage, I get it though, it serves an important purpose). Now, I love Fashion Week because I get to meet really impressive and sincerely creative people while viewing collections designed by friends and colleagues, but on the other hand, it's an absolute zoo and the fact that seasoned industry folk might resent my presence gives me anxiety.
I also have classes I need to be in, so there's that old chestnut.
Of the shows that don't interfere with classtime, I have a couple that I'll head out to like Suno, Timo Weiland, Lulu Frost, and Alice & Olivia, but other than that, although I'm happy to get invites, I'd rather see better details on Style.com instead of getting an elbow in the ribs by an overly dressed magazine intern at Milk Studios. It's also REALLY cold outside right now and I'm the worst with dressing for travel and comfort.
Speaking of which, I wore this stuff for lunch in the neighborhood. The boots are doable in the snow with the right socks and weatherproofing, and this sweater saves my life on the regular; I think I've worn it at least once pretty much every week in January. And this vest, oh, this vest. Cheap Monday makes really awesome pieces that play with proportion and material, so this denim vest is great because it's so oversized and fun to layer.
Anywhose, It's an exciting time in the city, I just gotta be on my A-game before graduating.
