#notNYFW

February 13, 2017

While I’m currently in New York and it’s currently fashion week, this isn’t a NYFW post. And you won’t be seeing one from me…because I’m not going.

Why? Because fashion week low key  kind of sucks. The reality is: waiting in crowds, slipping and sliding in the snow, freezing your face off to get a good streetstyle photo, scrambling bloggers stealing each other’s seats, and about 100 uber rides. Oh, and the clothes? Forget the collections, we’re all frantically on our phones during the runway show trying to capture a good photo for instagram, a couple of snapchat videos, and a decent boomerang for instastories. While running home in between 30-minute show breaks to change outfits.

Sounds exhausting? Yeah, it is. I’ll be sitting this one out this year. So here’s a throwback from LA! Cheers loves.

    You’re speaking my language!! I’ve actually never attended NYFW, but I think I would feel the same way. Especially in the winter!! I LOVE these shots Stefanie took of you.

    First: obsessed with this lokk!
    Second: I`m totally with you. Who needs to go to a FW when Insta is full of it already?

    I’ve never been to NYFW, but I can imagine how frustrating it could get especially if you live in New York!
    It does sound super hectic, but I would love to go one day!
    Love this look, gorgeous as always!
