NYFW Essentials.

covernyfwessentials

So let’s be real; fashion week is both exciting and draining. There’s always one million things to do, shows to attend, people to meet, parties, outfit changes, updating social media 24/7… I mean, c’mon! It’s hard work people! By the third day, I’m already exhausted. It’s probably one of the most draining experiences every season, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. It’s my passion.

With all the fashion week chaos, it’s been hard for me to stay organized because I’m always on the go… running out the door early in the morning to catch a show, running back to my hotel to do an outfit change for my next show, hailing cabs (which btw, takes foreverrr during this time of season, pretty annoying), to having quick meetings and impromptu little photoshoots in between everything.

If it weren’t for a few of my go-to essentials this nyfw, I probably wouldn’t have survived it quite smoothly as I did. Check below to see what I packed and how it helped!

Update: I wrapped up my last day of NYFW yesterday, whew! I have a full day tomorrow of just playing tourist in the city! So excited.. any recommendations of things to do? let me know! xo

Earphones: Kept me entertained while I rode in the cabs between shows or to my hotel, plus they look cool on- an accessory statement!

Sony Xperia Z tablet: Such a life saver!! Made the biggest difference this nyfw season having it… read over next photo for more details below.

Necklaces: I tried to always carry a couple of bold pieces with me just incase i might need to layer or switch them off.

Sunglasses: I’m obsessed with sunglasses, I’ve built quite the collection back home. For fashion week, I ended up always carrying two pairs with me because I never knew when I needed to switch them out and photograph a different look.

Wallet: Always comes with me everywhere I go. It’s the perfect size.

Watch: If I didn’t have it on me, I had it in my purse to help me obviously be on time with my shows/meetings.

Bandaids: Let’s face it, my feel can’t stand wearing heels for one week straight non-stop, especially in this New York cobblestone streets and all. I always carried bandaids with me to help me with any woes.

Makeup: Tried not to carry a big makeup bag because it does get heavy, so I only took with me my favorite Laura Mercier lipstick, powder and perfume.

This Sony Xperia Z tablet (which btw is super thin, light-weight AND waterproof!!!…. yeaaaah!) was a total life saver in helping me get by and stay organized. It helped me stay on top of my appointments/shows with the calendar, was great for taking notes, updating my social platforms, great for uploading photos, posting on instagram, and listening to the walkman when I had free time or in between shows. It was the perfect accessory for such a hectic but fun week of fashion events! The table fit right in while always helping me stay on top of everything!

    I love the idea of carrying a bold piece of jewellery to add a little ‘extra’ something to an outfit!…. never thought of that as my mind is always thinking shoes or jacket to switch it up… which of course is much more bulky to carry…good tips. thanks.x

    I find it always exciting what other people have in their bags:) thanks for that post amd for those useful tips!
    What I really would recommend it to you is to visit the high line in east village. It is pretty cool and you can go there also for having a break and just relax from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.

    I can’t help but notice how many fashion bloggers had that new Sony tablet.. it would be nice for them to acknowledge that maybe Sony gave them to them to promote.

    I suggest checking out the stores on 5th Ave and stopping for a snack at the Bouchon Bakery at the Rockeller Center.

    Glad you had a wonderful time! It must be definitely thrilling and tiring at the same time, but worthwhile I’m sure!
