“Fashion Week”. Two simple yet powerful words that when put together and merely mentioned in front of any lover of fashion immediately causes a flurry and overwhelming reaction. Paris, Milan, London or New York, fashion week has always been portrayed as this indescribable place where all the greatest designers, stylists, fashionista celebs, and influential socialites come together to ooh and aah over next season’s looks and trends. A little girl growing up in a big world where fashion has always taken a huge part of my life, you can only imagine how much of a dream it has always been for me to one day take part, let alone be in the same city, as these incredible, wonderous, and influential shows that get talked about for ages. For those who followed me on Twitter and Instagram this past week, you know that I finally decided to pack up my bags (suitcases on suitcases on suitcases to be exact) and head to NY to finally be one with Fashion Week. Going to shows, events, and simply hanging out on the iconic Lincoln Center steps, NYC during Fashion Week was all that you could think of and more. Stressing the week prior about what exactly I should pack and what would be deemed appropriate as fashion show attire, today’s outfit was inspired by two of the greatest fashionista game changers of all times– Madonna and Carrie Bradshaw. I mean…. how can you not head to New York and want to relive and redo Carrie’s epic walking in a tutu on the streets of NY scene?? …But actually. Making my outfit a little more modern day and edgy and less the Nutcracker, I added a twist to Carrie’s iconic look by channeling what I deemed to be my inner Madonna with this leather crop top, studded belt, and combat boots to give my look that little extra Fashionlaine flare that made me without a doubt ready to take NYFW by storm.
