This post is part of our new segment ”How I Wore It”, a capsule where we’d like to share with you our take on how to style accessories, pieces, new collections along with new seasons & trends. This segment doesn’t aim necessarily to show you how to be fashionable (Goosh, we’re not that corrupted… yet), but rather give you ideas on how to step up your style while being right on-trend (Plus, force ourselves to dress better!)
Aaah New York, How much I love thee!
It took me a while to get over my trip at New York Fashion Week, mainly because it was very different this time. For once, I was walking in the city without feeling like an outsider, or a visitor, but rather like a true New-Yorker. I got used the city so fast and so well – I developed a Bradshaw-esque routine where writing during the day and partying with the finest NYCies until dawn were in order. AND I closed deals for my blog (That’s another story, I’ll tell you about it in another post). So If I had to do a recap – it would go like this: I met Tiffany’s Design director Francesca Amfitheatroff, Shook Miroslava Duma‘s hand, visited many showrooms, went to trendy restaurants with inspiring friends, partied until 8:00 am (Boom Boom Room is insane!), danced with Diana Vreeland‘s grand daughter, fed myself with Starbuck’s Caramel Machiatto and my culinary chef roommate’s succulent vegan food, had late-night conversations on rooftops, texted through Steve Madden’s phone and… oh, so much more fun memories! Bonheur…
Yeah…It was hard to come back, I felt like leaving a wonderful life behind, but also a family of great people who instantly adopted me.
I also had this fun street style session , in the high line, with Chloe Leroux-Crane, one super talented photographer student, who’s starting her internship with the adorably fierce Garance Doré. This time, the task was to style Canadian designer Britt Watcher’s Spacer top. Britt Watcher is one my favourite designers in Montreal. Her forte is mixing different fabrics – in a way that structure, consistency and architectural cuts are omnipresent on her line, which kinda make her identity.
Because I’m still learning how to mix and match, I mixed it with an H&M tweed skirt, Karen Millen bag, and my favourite BCBGMAXAZRIA’s statement necklace. Oh, and those shades are Steve Madden’s (I wear them aaaaaalll the time lately! Who knew? Me who used to hate on mirrored shades).
