New York Fashion Week Style

So I am back from the whirlwind that was New York Fashion Week. I spent three weeks in my favourite place in the world. I shot runway, street style, model portfolios and let’s be honest ate my way through my favourite bakery’s and danced many, many nights away.  

While I’ve been back for two weeks now, it doesn’t feel like it on the account I spent my first week lying down and resting a severely sprained foot.  I am currently bound to sneakers and crutches.

I'm feeling less than glamorous at the moments, so this prompted me to flash back to Fashion Week in NYC to one of my favourite outfits.

When I travel I have a tradition of buying a boss outfit (and a few key staple items). Yes, it sounds crazy, and I get the comment “shop when your overseas” all the time. However, when travelling to one of the fashion capitals of the world I can’t go looking like a slob! I like to put my best foot forward.

As a stylist I also look for statement pieces and versatility, and because I am on a budget trying to save I naturally went to my fav shopping haunt Canberra Outlet Centre.

TK Maxx was my first stop where I picked up this classic silver Oroton clutch. Justifications for the purchase are:
1. It’s leather.
2. It’s on sale.
3. It’s silver, thus almost goes with anything I wear.
4. It has a cross over strap perfect for nights out dancing while in NYC.
5. It has internal zip pockets to keep my valuables safe.


I also recently shot the Spring Summer campaign for Canberra Outlet and Sofia styled our model Zoe with a gorgeous mesh dress from Veronika Maine (available from the Cue store at the centre). Having seen it on Zoe I knew this was the pinnacle piece for my “Deejay does NYC look”.

Sofia styled it as a sports luxe look, but I wanted to do something different with it.

I paired it back with a printed skirt for some dimension and a pair of heels from my wardrobe. I'm also loving the simplicity of black and white at the moment.

Heel selection when travelling is important to me. I needed a shoe that would go with most outfits (so that’s usually a nude, black or metallic) and something I can walk in with without breaking my ankle (irony I sprained my ankle in sneakers).
Add some statement earrings and voila you get my very fun NYC look.

Oh did I mention that I also buy items I will wear again! I’m actually planning on wearing the mesh dress layered over cigarette pants and a singlet to work with a statement belt and heels when my ankle is better! Or maybe even over a pair of straight jeans (need to test this to see if it will look good).

Special shout out to my girl Juvenia Silvester for doing my makeup for the shoot and Kimeth McClelland for snapping me while I was laughing the whole time.

Note: We shot this right next to Magnolia's bakery my favourite place for a salted caramel pecan cheesecake!
