NYFW Recap & Chiara Boni Backstage Peek

Last month, I was SO LUCKY to be in New York during Fashion Week with some of my favorite friends. Y’all know Cathy and Heather from our Chic at Every Age Series.  I had met Erin for the first time during the trip, and we ended up being roomies.  It was all so much fun with the gals and a trip of a lifetime.  The whole reason I was able to attend is because Mr. S gave me the green light because we are going to start the adoption process again in January!!  EEeekk!! We are very excited but nervous at the same time.  I can barely handle life with just one baby, so wish me luck on TWO!!!!!

And it’s crazy, but I really have so much trouble doing recap posts.  It’s probably because I want to add every details and then get overwhelmed.  Then I realized, it’s my blog so just do what I want right?!?!  Anyhow, this is a long post so I added a “Read More” button if you want to catch all the details!

We decided to do a blogger photo shoot since we were in NYC.  When in Rome right… We chose Lincoln Center as our backdrop, the previous location for NYFW.  Now, the shows are spread out throughout the city.  The above photos were an outfit I wore on my “last day” of Fashion Week.  You’ll see me in the outfit below.

Here we go….

So we arrived in New York in time to check into the Michaelangelo hotel and then change to attend the rewardStyle annual rooftop party.

The next day, we explored Manhattan, had lunch at the Bergdorf Goodman cafe, and visited the Elaine Turner boutique on Madison Avenue.  To say that I’m a bit obsessed with Kelly Wearstler is an understatement.  I was in Heaven on the top floor of Bergdorfs taking in all the interior design inspiration.  Even her candy bars are cool!

The last day was so busy and SO FUN.  We walked around SOHO and visited Reformation. I am absolutely IN LOVE with the store.  They are an eco-friendly company, and their pieces are very on-trend but classic at the same time.  A lot of their pieces are vintage inspired, and you know that’s MY THING!

Then I went back to the hotel (the other gals were flying home) and did a quick change before heading to the Chiara Bona show for a backstage pass for hair and makeup.  I was so excited because I met Chiara herself while I was wearing one of her creations! meetingChiaraBonibackstagechiarabonifashionshow1




After snapping a few pics, I cabbed it back up to Rockefeller center for a Romona Keveza showroom presentation.  (No pictures allowed of the model, but I snapped one of style sheet!)  Oh my gosh!  Those were the MOST AMAZING dresses, and her pieces are worn on the red carpet by so many celebrities.


My friend Jenny and I headed back to down to SOHO for an Alexis Bittar reception.  WOW!!! That was one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen!  Live modeling and painting…. very NYC!! LOL!

I called it a night after that and went back to the Michaelangelo Hotel to pick up my luggage and cabbed to The Standard where I stayed for the BHG Stylemaker Celebration. You can read about that adventure HERE!


Hope you enjoyed this Recap!!  I also did it for myself so I COULD REMEMBER all the fun and chaos that happened!  Happy Monday Friends!!  Will see you soon!

    1. Just like Little T, Mica!!! That picture of him in the Big Bro tee is adorable!!

      And it was fun to be so “glam” while I was there! I adjust what I wear when I’m with Little M here!! Definitely not as much jewelry still!

      1. Haha yes I know what you mean.

        I’m slooowly easing back into wearing more accessories….probably as I’m doing frocktober and want to be a little different rather than just wearing a dress each day, and show some variety. But most of the time I’m taking the bracelets off when I get home!

        I’d send you the big bro tee so M could wear it, but I think he’s a bit bigger being older, and it wouldn’t fit him!
