You guys would not let me forget to complete my Fashion Week Series… I see your comments messages and tweets. The next stop is the train of what I actually wore. I attended shows six out of the seven days of the official fashion week!
Day One: Charles Miller
I wore a H&M trend, striped shirt dress as a duster. The sequined t-shirt I wore underneath was also from H&M and I have had it for years! For accessories I wore a pair of plum chunky heels I purchased on DEPOP. They are from Nine West and matched the look perfectly. I wore my June by June Ambrose handbag and my H&M wide brim fedora. I finished off the look with a dark lip and this easily became one of my personal favorite looks.
Day Two: Shaun D Ross
The next stop was the Shaun D Ross Presentation. I was surprised to learn that he had a collection for fashion week. Shaun is a well known model in the fashion world and I was intrigued to see what he was showing. Stay tuned for the details of that!
I never wear black but I fell in love with this jumpsuit style. If you guessed H&M, you are correct. I did not opt for the jumpsuit but instead purchased the blouse. I am tall so I wanted the option to purchase a well tailored pant that would suit me better.
This look was all about accessories so I paired my red bohobazaar suede fringe clutch with fuzzy heels and another H&M wide brim fedora! I just love a good hat!
Day Three: Essence Street Style Block Party
The next day was Sunday. I had a long list go shoes to attend but instead I decided to stick around at the Essence Street Style Block Party. Arryles and Ron Bass were presenting their new collections plus it was a great opportunity to mix and mingle with a few people I hadn’t seen in a while.
I wore a bright coral jumpsuit from Roxx by Hotpoint that I had purchased last summer. I was going to be doing a lot of walking so I paired the look with my gold ALDO flat sandals and a huge statement necklace that wasn’t a necklace at all. If you read my previous Fashion Week post on accessories you already know the deal.
Day Four: Fashion Night Out
On Sunday I rested in the morning and attended the Fashion Night Out Party hosted by a few fashion bloggers and notable style influencers. I wanted something casual minimally chic and no fuss. I paired this Snake print longline blazer that I purchased from the K&G Store with jeans and a t-shirt. I kept the palette neutral with Greta and black boots to keep the focus on the jacket piece. This is something I could definitely wear again.
On the fifth day I took a seat on the fashion bench to rest and recharge. I pretty much went to work and came home to turn in early.
Day Six: Angela Simmons (Fail)
The fifth day… Was the day that I was MOST looking forward to. I have been following Angela Simmons fashion long before there was a template drafted for the Instagram app. I am a huge fan of her business as well as her style. Although I tried my best to leave work early and take a cab to the venue at Kia Style 360 I was unsuccessful in attending the show. I even set aside what I thought was my best look.
I paired a sleeveless coat with this monochromatic Kim K style look. I paired a turtleneck and maxi pencil skirt which I purchased from a store in Queens, New York called “Tick Tock” with my Forever 21 vest. I wore my new favorite statement piece once again and decided to wear my mini fro. I didn’t get into the show but I looked amazing! If I do say so myself.
The final day I was so tired! I didn’t prep the night before, I over slept and woke up late. When I looked at my clothing rack I saw stripes. I decided to play into the theme and paired all of my black and white pieces together.
The shirt dress and blouse are from Rainbow. I again wore the shirt open in a duster style and paired the sheer blouse with a assymetrical striped skirt from H&M.
All the looks from this fashion week came from old and new pieces that I styled together to make one cohesive look. If you have any further questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below.
