Hellllllo everyone! Did anyone else watch NYC fashion week? If not, don't fret because the fashion fun is just beginning! NYFW kicked off fashion month, so if you missed last week there are still countless shows to see.
1. Fashion Month Schedule
Fashion week starts in New York, what a great place to start.
Then it goes to London, then Milan, and finally Paris.
There are also other fashion weeks around the world, but these are the most well known.
2. live streaming
Sadly, we can't all be Anna Wintour. That means that not all of us can sit front row at every show (LOL I rhymed). But you can get a great view of all the FABULOUS new trends by live streaming straight from your computer! Plus, by live streaming you don't have the added stress of finding the perfect outfit, and if you're anything like me, you'll find the fuzziest blanket and snuggle in bed while watching and being envious of all the fabulous clothes. Now, not all the shows are live streamed, but most of the more known designers are. Also, don't freak out if you miss a show- reruns are constantly playing!
Watch fashion week live, here!
3. backStage Access
Backstage access to the hottest shows sounds pretty nice, right? Luckily for us, Snapchat is here! Most brands have Snapchat. This makes it so you can see behind the scenes. They'll post anything from choosing models, final fittings, guests at the show, runway makeup, etc. etc. etc.. It's also a constant update, which gives you a more personal feel towards the brand.
Some of my favorite designers I follow & their Snap usernames:
-Burberry: burberry (Burberry has really out done themselves on their Shapchat. It is incredible. Probably my favorite that I follow.)
-Louis Vuitton: lvlive
-Sephora: sephorasnaps (This account is mostly makeup, but during NYFW they had a lot of behind the scenes with the models.)
Other great fashion accounts can be found here.
4. Follow Designers
Follow them on Twitter! I follow countless accounts that never fail to keep me up to date. The brands themselves will post photos of the clothes, but other accounts will give you their opinion on the shows. An account I follow that is 1) HILARIOUS and 2) always one step ahead of the fashion news is Nico Bellay, of @IAMFASHION. They are truly so funny.
The shows that are on now, aren't for this season, they are for the next season. When you see S/S 2015 that means Spring/Summer 2015 collection, and when you see F/W 2015 that means it is for the Fall/Winter collections. Also, a lot of the trends that come out of fashion week aren't from the shows themselves, but from the street style seen at the shows. Goals.

It's that time of year again, folks! It's fall!- well, almost. Here in KY it was crazy hot last weekend, but now it's in the cooler mid 50's. Yeeee!! Fall is my absolute favorite season. I'm pretty sure I say that all the time, but why wouldn't you love it? Big sweaters, boots, hats, fashion week, OMG the list could just keep going. My go-to fall outfit is usually a tunic, boots, and more times than other- my fur vest. The last couple of weeks I've been looking at all my sweaters and getting so upset because it wasn't cold enough to wear them...haha I'm so lame. When dressing for fall it is important to remember that layering is everything. Because it is a season of transition some days are cooler or warmer than others. Like you can tell from my pictures, I was wearing my fur vest but took it off half way through the shoot. Layering!!! Also, I've been really into pigtail braids lately. Idk why... but they are super cute. OH another exciting thing that happened to me: I got glasses! It's fashion for your face!! Maybe next week they will be apart of my look, haha.
I was so extra excited to do this photoshoot. Wanna know why? Because my friend Gavin did it for me! Gav and I have been friends for a while now, and he is probably the cutest human I've ever met. Isn't he amazing? He is definitely one of the most talented people I know. Gavin's work has won, and been nominated for countless awards. If you are interested in working with Gavin Duvall, or want to check out more of his work- click here to go to his Instagram! I promise, you won't be disappointed.
Until next time my fashion friend followers,
(p.s. I was watching a live streaming of fashion week as I was writing this. Here's the link to watch it too! )

Hey guys! As sad as it may sound, summer is nearly over. For me this is a bittersweet feeling, because I will miss the warm weather and bright sun, but I am SOOO excited for the fall. Boots, sweaters, football games, FASHION WEEK!!! Speaking of fashion week- Givenchy is opening their show to the public??!?!? OK WHAT. Earlier in the week you had to apply for an invitation on their website at 10:00 am exactly. The night before I asked my mom if we could go and she said absolutely not... ha..ha. The next day I was sitting in physics and what do I do? Apply for an invitation to the Givenchy show, of course! (LOL my mom doesn't know that... sorry, Mom). Anyways, I didn't get it, but I guess that's a good thing because I would have tried everything to get to go. Fashion week starts Thursday and I will be watching as much as I can (from the comfort of my bed that is). Keep me updated as to which show is your favorite!
These photos are some of my last ones from NYC. I took these in SOHO with my gal pal Grace. Grace also has a fashion blog! It is called Rocky Avenues. It is so cute, if you haven't already you NEED to go check it out.
This shirt is s t u n n i n g. I absolutely adore it, and every time I wear it, I get endless compliments. It is so different and eye catching. Everyone could use a little sparkle in their life. Haha! There are more colors on Anthro's website, so I recommend checking it out! Plus, it's on sale right now!
That's all I have you you guys!
