What was once an amazing week under big white tents in Bryant Park – Midtown Manhattan, has moved to the Upper West Side for an even bigger week of fashion at the Lincoln Center. It’s almost that wonderful time of the year again – Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC. Loads of flashing lights, incredible runway shows, parties, shopping, glitz, and glamour – If that doesn’t catch your eye, than perhaps the NYC street fashion as it kicks into high gear will. There are always some really great looks both on and off the runway.
I’m a little sad that I’ll missed most of it, but I’ looking forward to some much needed vaca time in the Caribbean and I’ll be back in time to catch a few shows and parties before the week is over. Two of my favorite shows to watch are Michael Kors and Betsy Johnson, and each always has some amazing pieces for me to pack and take on my next adventure.
This month the Travel Fashion Guide will be introducing you to some fab designers that are on the move. Menswear, women’s apparel, and accessories I know you’re going to love learning about these designers and adding some unique pieces to your travel and everyday wardrobe. Do you have a favorite designer? Live in the NYC Area? What are some of your “go to” pieces for stepping out during fashion week?
Wishing you happy travels! -xo AGT
Hey travelers and fashionistas!
How does everyone feel after their weekly workout? Stronger and sexier by the minute, I’m sure….
Well, this week, AGT is travelling to Oregon to visit friends, run a half marathon, explore, and spend some time in wine country… and of course I had to help her pick out some key, fashion forward, outfits for her journey.
Two BIG things AGT needs for her trip: 1) a casual, but still fashion forward outfit, to travel around, during the day, and still be comfortable 2) a wine country outfit for those amazing wine tastings she is going to attend.
Nothing screams comfort and fashionable like my old faithful, a colored (yellow) Converse Chuck Taylor J she’s going to be able to walk all over and still look so cute in a pop of color shoe. The new Rag & Bone distressed cropped boyfriend jeans are a perfect, slouchy, relaxed denim…able to move, and yet still be in style. Next, let’s pair the jeans with the affordable, west coast inspired, California Tee from Topshop. Finally, adding a straw fedora and a cute pair of vintage sunglasses are the perfect combination of comfort, accessories, and fashion for a day of touring down the Oregon Trail J
Nothing is more elegant, sexy, or fashion forward then a little white dress at a wine party. Alice & Olivia’s “Florence” dress is a boho, chic, white peasant dress that is the perfect base piece for a wine tasting… just don’t spill J To stick with my love for spikes, and an edgier piece in every outfit, Juicy Couture’s “Spike Drama Necklace” adds the pop of gold and silver colors to the white dress. It will fall perfectly above the neckline of the dress and be a great way to pull the whole outfit together. A gold Nine West strappy heel will definitely bring out the gold in the necklace and add to the pops of color throughout the outfit. Pairing the outfit with a matching gold Michael Kors clutch is the perfect finish to a divine, wine tasting outfit.
Let’s all wish AGT a fun, exciting trip to the west coast! Don’t forget to follow her on twitter this week to catch all the excitement as she travels! @agirltravels
