The last day of fashion week SS 2014 happened to be my second time ever at a fashion show. The first time I was offered an invite to a designer’s menswear collection viewing. I couldn’t pass on the opportunity and it was probably the beginning of my fashion dreams. This year I thank a fellow Stylist for inviting me to her friend’s fashion show this year and allowing me to be a part of an experience I hope to live forever.
For the Sarango New York fashion show on Union Square, I chose to wear a black body hugging slip dress. Stephanie’s collection was going to be full of pastel and earth tones (from a sneak peek Instagram post) so instead of blending in with the models, I wore Anna Wintour’s not so favorite color (check out her answers to more of the 73 questions with Vogue via Youtube!) It was so humid out, black was the perfect color to cover any sweat marks! If any! Ha!
I kept my makeup light, but glowing by using Nars ‘Silk Road‘ (my all time favorite special occasion eye shadow), Nars Larger Than Life ‘Gold Digger‘ Lip gloss over Chanel Rouge Coco ‘Superstition’ lipstick and Dior Vernis ‘Or Divin’ nail lacquer. I added some new dainty jewelry to match my golden makeup; Rebecca Minkoff ankle strap sandals I got at Marshall’s for lees than $100 (one of my many Fall shoe additions) and a BCBGMAXAZRIA envelope clutch I got as a gift. I enjoyed every minute of the show and expect to purchase one or two pieces once the collection is available online. I snapped some photos after the show, check them out below.
