What I Wore to NYFW s/s 20
As any attendant to fashion week can tell you, it’s all about what you wear, and this article is about what I wore to NYFW s/s 20. Many of the pieces were items I pulled out of my closet. It’s expensive to stay in NYC, and my budget did not allow for spending money on a bunch of new clothes, so I made do with pieces I already had in my closet. I did buy a couple of inexpensive new items to freshen things up.
Oh, and the photo quality differs in this post. I wanted to share the candid, behind the scenes moments of my experience. I usually shoot my content with a DSLR camera, and many of the shots I took on the fly were with my iPhone. The lighting from the sidelines of the runway can also be unpredictable. So there will be a mix of images, and I apologize in advance for the quality of some.
To see more behind the scenes images, and see how I planned my outfits for NYFW, I have written about my prepping experiences here.
Orange Zara Dress
This dress is such a pretty shade of orange, as orange goes! It comes with a belt that goes around the waist. I paired it with a pair of black and white floral embroidered boots, also from Zara.
BCBG Faux Leather Dress
I initially thought this dress was real leather, that’s how convincing it looks and feels. I prefer and love the fact it’s faux! There is a stretchy panel on each side of the dress, making it fit perfectly, and comfortably. This was my favorite day by far, because I ran into an old friend from Vancouver. Jamal Abdourahman started the Global Fashion Collective in Vancouver, Canada as a way to support up and coming designers from countries all over the world. Runways shows are now staged in New York and Tokyo, and Global Fashion Collective represents designers from countries as diverse as London, Paris, Peru, Canada, New York, Taiwan, Berlin, and many more. Here is more information on the Global Fashion Collective.
Nicholas Red Lace Dress
My husband gave me this dress as a birthday gift a couple of years ago, and I love it. It has special meaning to me because we were away in Stowe, Vermont for my birthday when he gave it to me.
Blue Stella McCartney Pants with Zara Bodysuit
I’ve had both these pieces for some time, and find the pants can be dressed up or down. It’s the long, floor skimming silhouette that makes them feel more “fashion” as opposed to office work pant. Of course, throw on a button up shirt and jacket, and they would be lovely at the office.
Proenza Schouler Dress
This is actually a dress I wore to my daughter’s first birthday party. The upper is made of a scuba material, and it has a light and floaty floral bottom flared hem.
Beaded Zara Top with Black Leather Skirt
I paired a leather skirt from my closet with this beaded top from Zara. Oh how I love the unique finds at Zara that won’t break the bank! These earrings are also from Zara, and are no longer available as far as I know, though I found a similar pair on Amazon. The sunnies, below, go from dark to lighter gradient, and are super reasonably priced.
Ann Taylor Blue Windowpane Print Shift Dress
This dress has a soft and stretchy fit, and is machine washable. I actually bought it from the petite section, and am wearing a small. It’s currently on sale for $51.oo with an additional 40% off at checkout.
Zara Sheer Pink Dress with White Amazon Lace Blouse
This sheer dress/shirt from Zara is no longer available, yet you can still find the white lace shirt on Amazon. I wear the lace shirt with a tank top or long sleeve shirt underneath, with a pair of jeans. It has a shirt hem at the front and it is long at the back. It’s a unique find, and you’re probably familiar with the pricing on Amazon, it’s also a steal!
