I have always been a fan of leopard print. When I saw leopard print was going to be huge last season, I was screaming for joy inside. After attending New York Fashion Week (NYFW) Spring/Summer 2020, I was relieved to see that leopard is STILL very much in style, according to the street style scene. While leopard print seemed to be a reigning fave, snakeskin was also a close contender! 

From loud head to toe snakeskin and leopard pint looks to more subdued statement items, I saw animal print literally everywhere. Since these prints were so hot on the street style scene, I decided to do a round up of some fab animal print items from looks I wore during NYFW, as well...

It's hard to believe that almost 2 weeks ago I was headed to NYC for New York Fashion Week (NYFW) Spring/Summer 2020 (SS20)! NYFW is always one of my favorite things to do because not only do I love seeing what trends will be big for the upcoming season, but I LOVE to see the street style and all the amazing things fashion-goers wear! I'll be giving a NYFW highlights by day, and today I'm sharing my Day 1 highlights and what I wore!

NYFW Day 1: Look 1

For the first look of NYFW, I decided to go with this look that I've labeled, "Pink Elvis" lol. Pant suits were literally all over the street style scene last season also, and I knew they'd be back again this year. I wore t...

If you've followed along with some of my previous New York Fashion Week (NYFW) experiences, you'll know one of my favorite reasons to attend is for the Street Style. Along with all the fabulous runway shows, are the lovely people who are attending the shows and trust me when I say people show up & show out. NYFW is one of the best places to find new inspiration and see what is going to be reallllll popular in the upcoming seasons.

Last weekend I hit NYFW with my closest creative ladies and we had a blast. Inspired by the weekend and what I wore and saw people wearing to the shows, I wanted to write up my predictions on what is going to be SUPER in style the next up...

Around every New York Fashion Week (NYFW) season, the number one question I always get is "How do I get invited to shows?" With NYFW Fall/Winter19 coming up just around the corner, I wanted to share some old NYFW posts, but also share some tips on how to get show invites & what to expect from NYFW.

The number one thing you must do to get invites is have the courage to ask for invites. Unless you are a celeb or well rooted in the fashion industry, chances are invites will not come directly to you- especially if you have never been to a NYFW show before. If you have the courage to ask and pitch yourself for shows, then you are ready to start the process....

1. ASK for invi...

If there is one place you need to show up and show out, its at New York Fashion Week (NYFW). At NYFW, you can expect to see the best street style ever, and be inspired on new ways to wear things or the hottest styles of the season. 

Speaking of seasons, you may be wondering how NYFW actually works or why the presentations don't coincide with the actual season. Fashion Week is always seasons ahead. For example, in February, designers show their Fall/Winter collections for that upcoming year. Every September, designers show their Spring/Summer designs for the next season. So, this past September 2018, designers presented the Spring/Summer 2019 collections. Make sense? <Si...
