Top Three: NYC Fashion Week

Hello bloggers, I promise I haven't forgotten you! I'm back to show you my top three from this year's New York Fashion Week. I feel like I spent so much time just refreshing and refreshing, but I know you're all with me on that one. I love that I trends that I've seen for Spring 2010, and I can't wait to try them out once warmer weather comes around!

#1. Charlotte Ronson

#2. Erin Wasson x RVCA

#3. Alexander Wang

I LOVED everything about these three shows, and these are some of my favorite pieces from them. I think that Charlotte Ronson's color palette is just perfect, Erin Wasson's effortless boho chic is flawless, and Alexander's Wang sporty but chic looks are perfect for going anywhere in the spring. Some of my other favorites were Jill Stuart, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Anna Sui,and Vena Cava. Now it's off to London, (via the internet, that is) for London's Fashion Week. I will definitely get back to you guys with my favorites! (I'm already loving Luella <3)

xo, C.

Rain or Shine

As many other fashionista's did, Q. and I got to attend New York's Fashion's Night Out the kick off of New York City's Fashion Week. I have been anticipating this night for so long planning and planning and re-planning which stores across New York City I wanted to visit. Finally myself, my roommate from college and Q. decided on having our big and most eventful stop of the night to be Bergdorf Goodman because of the many designers (Zac Posen, Alexander Wang, Manolo Blahnik etc) were supposed to attend along with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen serving drinks, which was the main reason I was so excited to go, I needed to see my idols. To make a long story short, after waiting in many lines, squeezed together with many fashionista's from all over we did not get to see MK & A or anyone else for that matter because of the massive amount of fashionable ladies and gents at Bergdorf's.
On a side note, the only good thing that came out of it was getting to talk to random people in lines, Q. and I had the chance to meet the Skinny Intern fashion blogger from Miami! She was so sweet and I wanted to share her blog with you, check her out!
After the disappointment at Bergdorf's we made are way from Miu Miu to see Alexa Chung DJ, to Payless to meet the not so lovely Christian Siriano who you could tell was not thrilled by 9pm to pose with his many fans. Finally we all made our way to Soho and Bleecker St which we found much more fun, and much less crowded. Ended in the Marc Jacobs Accessory store spending $$ on wonderful things instead of the official Fashion's Night Out tee that was sold out in .2342 seconds. Disappointing.

Overall I was not a fan of Fashion's Night Out, very disorganized and very unrealistic.

Some pictures to sum up the night:
