Well a few things got in the way of Part 2 of my NYFW Diary for OK! Magazine, the biggest of which was Mother Nature herself. I woke up bright and early so excited to get back to New York, but as we arrived at the gate, American Airlines announced that my flight was cancelled due to tornadoes. Nonetheless, I got to spend another day at home in Nashville which is fewer these days so it was all good!
9 a.m. Take two… flight to New York! It was on time and we got in safe and sound!
5 p.m. Carmen Marc Valvo show! I got to go backstage and meet him and he was SO insanely nice! We had a really nice chat and took our front row seats for the show. His runway show was amazing! My favorite was this dress with pink on the bottom and sparkly white on top… it was gorgeous! I'm so happy that his show went so well, he deserves it.
10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Went shopping!!!!! I mostly shopped on 5th avenue and window shopped but i did go in a few stores like Saks! I purchased a pair of Christian Louboutons and justified them as great stage heels! After that went back to the Dream Hotel to get ready for Alice + Olivia show!
5 p.m. ALICE + OLIVIA! My FAVORITE designer! I wear a lot of their stuff to red carpet events so I was so happy when I found out I was invited! I loved their presentation! Their models were all standing and very stoic and beautiful and of course the clothes were to die for. I was obsessed with the sparkly long gown….maybe for the CMA's in November? A girl can dream.
6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Enjoyed a DELICIOUS dinner at KOI….love me some sushi!
8 p.m. OK! party! My friends and I danced the night away and enjoyed the cool atmosphere! DJ Yo-C was slaying it and lets just say my feet were KILLING me by the end of the night.
It was a very surreal feeling to be in New York on the 11th but there was a lot of love in the air.
11 a.m. I was invited by American Express to be a guest in their Skybox for the Vera Wang runway show which was, needless to say, PHENOMENAL. I got so excited when Vera walked out, I have been a fan of her work for years. Her collection this season did not disappoint — so many colors, yet classic and still beautiful… very Vera.
2 p.m. After the show I went over to AOL to hang with my friends in the music department: We talked tour, music and what I have coming up next!
4 p.m. And back to the airport to fly to Cleveland! That’s a wrap on my first Fashion Week ever! One of the most memorable things is the excitement you feel right before a show starts — I can’t wait for that again next year!
