Loving the thrill of dressing up for #NYFW !!!! Finding what to wear for Fashion Week, can be nerve racking?!?! Once you realize what you want to wear vs. comfort...you can come up with some cool looks. I got this jacket and pant suit at H&M knew that I wanted to add edge with this look. I paired it with my metallic oxford and shiny sunnies to match. It was super cold in NYC, I added my vintage cobalt blue cape that kept me warm for a couple of hours. It's still was a cool look that people would comment on how they loved my metallic shoes...Definitely going to NYC I would say wear comfortable shoes especially if your going to be walking around in the city. I see a lot of New York Fashion incorporating comfortable shoes with their looks...sometimes flats always wins!?!?!

What do you wear in NYC? 

See you next time!!!!

AKINYI'S FASHION DIARY: VIVIENNE HU FASHION SHOW ...

Anticipation of waiting for New York Fashion Week to start was all that I could think about for the past month and coming weeks. As Fashion Week started I had a full 3 day packed with shows back to back. Why was I so excited to see fashion shows...let me tell you fashion shows are amazing...Although I love the new trends and styles that come down the runway....most of time I'm looking at the attendees on "What They Wore" to fashion connections I could potentially make with fashion minded individuals like myself.

 

Now, Sunday I went to Vivienne Hu show..first off if you haven't noticed many of the fashion shows for the second time in a row have been offsite. Which is amazing I want to see how the runway will look and Vivienne Hu didn't disappoint. Her show was in a offsite location called the Artbeam Gallery, this gallery was very spacious and had the best lighting.  I loved that they took the time to put our names for our seat assignment. Which made it very personal, also Vivienne Hu teamed up with A to G lingerie each guest received a silk tie as a gift...I could totally use it as a scarf around my neck...

Vivienne Hu's Collection was made up of separates and one pieces that range for the modern or edgy women. I liked that her pieces could be paired with different textures. Take for instances this jacket below, I adore this look, she had a simple puffy jacket and added faux fur to the collar and sleeves...can you say brilliant! 

I enjoyed that each piece was flattering depending on what style women you are, your go-to is wearing a wrapped dress, long maxi, coat, or definitely lace..No matter what style you prefer Vivienne was strategic in making a variety pieces that you can admire or wear! Lastly, she made pieces that were definitely funky but still having a sophisticated appeal!
