NYFW Outfit Round-up

Remember earlier this year where I planned my dream looks for NYFW? Well, as fabulous as those outfits were, I am quite proud of the real looks I put together. During my outfit-planning sessions, little Ruby giggled at everything I modeled. That made narrowing things down a bit tougher. . .

Day 1
I figured an artsy look would fit right in at the tents at Lincoln Center for the Arts. The only flaw in the dress is that it has no pockets. Good thing I've got a fanny pack!

Day 2 
Being my main day at NYFW, I wore a studded blouse that easily transitioned from day to night:
Blazer: Target, Blouse: H&M (from Avalon Exchange), Shorts: Rung, Shoes: Steve Madden, Socks: DSW, Purse: Vintage
For the evening shows, I wore "the money vest." To give my faux leather skirt more oomph, I wore my DIY tulle skirt below it. (The black skirt has nearly imperceptible imprints of Hello Kitty on it, significantly increasing its rad degree.) This is my favorite look of the whole weekend!

Day 3
I had just one show on this day, so I really wanted something that was chic, comfortable, and easy to sight-see and shop in. A jumpsuit definitely fits that criteria, and you know I love floral-on-floral looks:
Jumpsuit: Jessica Simpson; Purse: Rung; Shoes: Urban Outfitters; Necklace: ?
For the Cesar Galindo after-party, I felt like going a lil' rock & roll:
Top: Marshall's; Suspender skirt: Rung; Shoes: Steven Madden; Purse: Vintage; Necklace: Family Heirloom
On a side note, I found an eclectic vintage thrift store near NYU called Monk Vintage. (Leave it to me to thrift even while on vacation, right!) There were lots of swoon-worthy designer vintage duds like furs and Chanel shoes, but I restricted myself to just one item. And I have to say, it's awesome. Zany, whimsical, truly a one-of-a-kind dress. Don't worry - it will make its debut at Saint Louis Fashion Week. :)

Day 4
OK, so I'm on little sleep, too much Dunkin Donuts (since there are, on average, 2 per city block, it's nearly impossible to avoid), and my comb was already packed. LOL. Nevertheless, I still love this blouse:
Blouse & Purse: Rung; Jeans: Material Girl; Shoes: Steve Madden; Eyewear: Versace
