The New York Diaries : The Inspiration

I seriously cannot believe that New York Fashion Week starts two weeks from tomorrow. I’ve been dreaming of attending for years, and now it’s finally going to be real. True, I’ll likely spend most of my time huddling in my stilettos outside the tents, but just being present for the event gives me butterflies in my stomach. Maybe even a sparrow.

A few of my friends have been asking me what I’m going to be wearing. After all, I’ve been lulled into a false impression of winter, given that it’s currently 65 degrees and sunny in San Francisco. But I’m excited to get back in touch with my Minnesota roots and find a way to look somewhat fashionable even when obscured by a giant coat.

I wrote recently about my all-black uniform, and I’m using my no-color palette as a building block for what I’ll be wearing that week. There’s so much fantastic inspiration out there, and a few looks in particular are getting me excited to start styling. I’m going to try my hardest to be selective about what I pack, only bringing the minimum (not my whole closet) for a week of mixing and matching.

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!
