NYFW FW16: Part II

So many punk vibes for A/W ’16: Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Fenty x Puma. I’m having flashbacks to 90s grunge houndstooth and fishnet looks. I love it but I especially want to focus on “good” meets “bad” this year–baby pinks, blues, and lace mixed with edgier pieces and makeup like Son Jung Wan and Rodarte did this season.

Fashion week was quite an experience. The weather app on my phone stated that it “feels like -8 F” on one of the days and I have literally never been so cold in my life. If I were to move to NYC, I’d have to invest in some fashionable, heavy coats. My coats felt paper thin–every step outside was painful. The weather put me in a foul mood the whole time. I tried not to show it, but I was majorly grumpy. I think that may be why New Yorkers aren’t so nice. There’s constant traffic and annoying tourists on top of miserable weather. I still love the city, but it’s so incredibly different from LA. Every person I met could actually tell I was from LA. I wonder what gave it away…

Son Jung Wan: one of my favorites. Pantone’s colors of the year + furs. The combination of brown and blue is going to be big.

Ply Apparel: love this hat. Ply apparel had a ton of great looks for curvier women. The accessories were on point as well.

Lulu Frost

Sadly, I got injured in London (this whole fractured arm and messed up nerve thing–I won’t get into it) and I had to move back home last month. It sucks, so much. But I finally got over it enough to get back into blogging.

I’ve been really into neutrals, turtlenecks monk shoes lately. I just realized I have a crop top just like this that I featured in my last post but they’re useful and versatile so it was a good buy. These jeans though…I really hate ’em. I think they’re made for stick thin women to wear on their hips with their belly button sticking out, but that’s not my style. In general, I’m drifting away from the “LA” look. I think good quality basics with the occasional trendy piece are the way to go. Hence, the purchase of this necklace. I’ve been obsessed with Lulu Frost for a while but didn’t think it was worth investing in. I was wrong–I’ll be wearing this piece all the time, especially because it’s super lightweight.

This leather jacket is the most bad ass piece of outerwear I own. And it’s just going to get better with age, it’ll get worn in and be even comfier. But I won’t have much use for it in the near future. Today, it was 84 degrees out…gimme back my seasons!
