Although it hasn’t been too cold this fashion week, it’s been so windy! On Day 5 I thought I was going to blow over! Even though I attended my first show of the day in a more feminine look, featuring a Zimmerman blouse and wide leg Proenza Shouler pants (similar here) (as well as a faux fur coat borrowed from mom – similar and affordable here), I made sure to wear my sturdiest Louis Vuitton boots (similar and affordable here) so I wouldn’t fall over! I always love mixing different styling elements in the same outfit, like this soft ruffled blouse with a huge chunky boot! My Song of Style x Gentle Monster US 101 sunnies in silver also brought out the beautiful colors of the Zimmerman blouse perfectly!
I also added a white bandana to my Chloe bag. This fashion week, I’ve really been focused on how I can use the position I’m lucky enough to have to make a difference. This white bandana represents solidarity, inclusiveness, and unity, started by The Business of Fashion’s hashtag, #TiedTogether. I love that a huge outlet like BOF is using their platform to raise awareness and create a movement so you bet I’ll be sporting the white bandana look to the rest of my fashion week wardrobe! (Thanks Imran!)

Keeping the theme of political and social activism this fashion week, I headed to the 3.1 Phillip Lim show wearing a graphic tee from Dior, saying “We Should All Be Feminists.” As an influencer I know I am going to be photographed by street style photographers, and that those photographs will make it onto many other platforms and websites, so I wanted to wear something that people would see and actually be inspired by but also start a conversation.
When I got to the show I was actually so surprised and excited to find out that my friend, Tina, had managed to get her hands on seven shirts from Prabal Gurung‘s new collection, which had just shown the day before! Bryan and Tina thought it would be a great idea for us to incorporate the graphic tees into our looks at the same time. This is one of the things I love about my job. I am so passionate about social justice, and when something is wrong I always speak out. It gives me a lot of hope that so many other designers, influencers, and other figures in the fashion industry are using their power and influence to spread positivity and enact change!

For my third and final look of the day, I wanted to go with a monochromatic look! I always like mixing different colors, but with Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to do an all-pink look from Oscar de la Renta. Monochromatic looks are so eye-catching, and aren’t boring as long as you’re mixing shapes and cuts. Because I was wearing super long pants (similar and affordable here and here) I wanted to pair them with a cropped top (similar and affordable here) and structured coat (similar here and affordable here). I also kept the styling simple with a single JW Anderson earring, my initial charm necklace from Chloe (similar and more affordable here) , and a Dior bag (similar here).
