Happy Monday! I had the BEST time at New York Fashion Week!! It was a whirlwind of Uber Pools, fashion shows, celebrities and walking… lots and lots of walking! I wasn’t sure what to expect as it was my first Fashion Week. But, all in all, I have to say that NYFW 2017 was one of my favorites so far since I usually follow the shows online when I’m in Florida. To be here in person, though, was amazing.
This blog has tons of photos from our first day, so keep scrolling to see my outfit, pics from our flight over, and, most importantly, photos from the NYFW 2017 shows!
The Flight Over to NYFW
To say that I overpacked would be an understatement. We brought Andi about 4 jackets too many. There was a snow storm the Thursday before we arrived, so I just wanted to make sure everyone had enough layers to keep warm. Mission accomplished! We arrived at the Laguardia airport around 10:45 on Saturday morning. Andi did extremely well on her very first flight. We took off around 8 am. She watched Despicable Me for about half an hour before falling asleep for the rest of the flight.
Unfortunately, I missed the Jill Stuart presentation, which was at 11am. 🙁 I was really disappointed but hope to get invited again in the future. We dropped off our luggage at The Lexington, where we were staying, and made our way over to Grand Central to have burgers from Shake Shack! I honestly could have eaten there every day. I do not like fries but theirs were SO GOOD! After lunch, we went back to our hotel to rest up before my first show. The Lexington was more than accommodating. They brought up a roll away crib for Andi and even let us have a 2pm check out on our last day. We are looking forward to staying there for the next NYFW.
My first show was Francesca Liberatore at 8pm. It was a long day but I was still pretty excited to get down to the show. I used Uber Pool for the first time, which was interesting. Navigating around NYC at night in the cold is not one of my favorite things, but I made it. I did not have a seat assignment for this show but it was still pretty exciting. My view was not the best for this show but I was able to get a few decent photos.
My feet and I were ready to get back to the hotel and go to bed. It was a long, amazing day. Check back tomorrow to read about Day 2!
