Fashion Week Recap


Fashion Week is going strong in NYC. This week I'm sharing highlights and an outfit.

The weather was steamy this week--I guess that's fitting since everyone was showing spring 2012 collections, but it sure wasn't getting me in the mood to buy fall clothes.

But when there is a good cause, I'm in. So I traveled to Madison Avenue to support Baby Buggy and shop the Carolina Herrera collection for Fashion's Night Out.

Guess who I saw on the way there? Kelly Bensimon. She was out and about trying to catch a cab with her daughter. Love the outfit Kelly!

No leather for me. Instead, I wore an old dress and paired it with a new pair of Sofft Boots. I love the way the suede works with the summery dress and I think it'll work well with jeans and my fall finery. I'm wearing the Sofft Windsor Boot in Tan ($163). You already know I am a fab of Sofft--the shoes look hot and I can walk for miles in them.


The next day it was off to Lincoln Center. I was stopping by a few suites to check out the hottest beauty and accessory trends. I started at Stella & Dot and got a peek at the Holiday Collection and the partnership with Alice Temperly--it's going to be great, but I can't show you until 10/1. So you'll have to be happy with a bit of news from BareMinerals.

I talked to Leslie Blodgett, the Founder of Bare Mineralsand got a look at the new READY foundation. I got color matched for the new product and loved the coverage. Light and seamless. Plus it's got spf20 in it too. They had a packed house full of bloggers getting touchups before stepping back out into NYFW's spotlights.
