This NYFW was much quieter for me than past seasons for a couple of reasons: I returned from China the day before February NYFW 2019 started, this is now my 5th season and I’ve repeatedly seen the same designers every year, and to be honest NYFW has lost some of its appeal for me. Part of this is just due to the whole “scene” of NYFW, from waiting in line to be seated, to shows starting late, to rushing in between venues. I am not saying I’m not grateful to be invited to NYFW, because I am so 100% grateful and it’s still a dream come to me to be able to go. But I guess I’ve lost the desire to show that I’m at NYFW and be seen. So I’ve been more selective with the shows I went to this season, choosing only ones that align with my style and which I’m interested in seeing. I loved this more chill season, it gave me a chance to actually enjoy the shows I did attend, as well as genuinely catch up with some blogger friends.
For my NYFW 2019 Day 1 outfit, I had to go with my favorite new fuzzy pink cardigan that I picked up this year in China. I fell in love with this cardigan the moment I saw it – have you ever seen anything like it?! From the fuzzy pink material to the gorgeous silver detailing, this pink cardigan is the epitome of cozy glam. To style my new favorite piece, I paired it with a tulle star skirt that I also found in China. Since this cardigan has a glam vibe to it, I layered a sequin blazer underneath for an element of contrast. This outfit is all about playing with layering and textures.
For my accessories, I kept with the boho glam vibe and chose a thick burgundy velvet headband. This headband is a dupe of the Jennifer Behr one but at a fraction of the price. I actually bought and returned the Jennifer Behr headband because it ended up being too big for my head. So I was ecstatic to find this dupe on Etsy that also fit my head better. Since there are so many elements to this outfit already, I chose clean colors for my shoes and handbag, going with white booties and a sharp green bag.
