September Survival: Part I

September 12, 2013

Our Spring show has come and gone and as New York Fashion Week comes to a close, it’s hard to believe that, for many, the chaos has only just begun! From New York to London to Paris to Milan, the entire month of September is a super chic marathon for editors, buyers and bloggers. So we caught up with some of our favorite bloggers about how they survive the month that’s all about fashion! In Part I, you’ll meet Vivaluxury’s colorful Annabelle Fleur and The Native Fox’s classic Jennifer Grace and hear all of their survival secrets—from indispensable accessories to the perfect rooftop cocktail. Be sure to check back throughout the month for more September Survival!

From Annabelle Fleur of Vivaluxury:

Must-Have:
I have my eye on the Liberty Leather leggings. Paired together with gladiator heels and a slouchy knit, I think they will be absolutely perfect for any of the daytime events or cocktail hour, worn with a structured blazer and a clutch.

Pick-Me-Up:
A shot of double espresso in the morning. Nothing helps me get through the day the same way.

Pet Peeve:
Most of the time I have multiple events scheduled on the same day and since Fashion Week is the biggest fashion event of the season, constant outfit changes are a must. Trying to fit all the 20 pairs of shoes I want to bring with me into 2-3 suitcases, giving up at some point and deciding which ones to leave behind, is definitely one of my biggest pet peeves!

Hot Spot:
After a long day, if the weather permits, I love to go to the rooftop at the Empire Hotel. In my opinion, it’s simply the best place to grab a cocktail while enjoying breathtaking views of New York City at night.

Memorable Moment:
I love the moment during the opening show, when the lights go down and the music starts, I always think to myself, “Here we go again!” Being able to glimpse into the future, to me, that’s magical!

From Jennifer Grace of The Native Fox:

Must-Have:
The 440 mini bag. It’s the perfect size for a night out in the city.


Pick-Me-Up:
Double soy vanilla lattes, several!


Pet Peeve:
So much going on, so little time.


Hot Spot:
I love Dirt Candy in East Village. Best vegetarian food, ever!


Memorable Moment:
I am hoping for lots of glam grunge and western inspiration!
