FIRST DAY OF NYFW
When it comes to New York Fashion Week, you don't often need to spend money on a new wardrobe to look great. All you need are some statement pieces straight out of your closet, some colorful accessories, a pair of killer sunglasses and a funky pair of shoes that will elevate your look. For the first day of New York Fashion Week, that's what I did. I went straight in my closet, mix and match and came up with this look. FYI: When you shop in general, be mindful of what you purchase. Better to spend your money on statement pieces that are of good quality than buying pieces just because they are in style or because everyone is wearing it. When you shop like that you you will have enough clothes to choose from to wear for events like NYFW. Some of the places I love to shop are Hautelook.com and Ruelala.com. There you can find a lot of designer brands for a fraction of the price. What I am wearing are from those two sites minus the necklace and the sunglasses. For my first look, I decided to wear this black turtleneck jersey shirt by Yigal Azrouel with a pair of ripped blue jeans by |Current/Elliott and cognac wedges by Luxury Rebel (similar here). As for accessories, a multicolored necklace (which I bought in Haiti) and a mix of colored bangles by Dolce Gabbana. To finalize my whole look, I rocked these purple bluish aviator sunglasses by Steve Madden which I borrowed from my blogger friend Kasey Ma. I was all set for my first day of NYFW!
