My fashion week day 1 was an even split between work and glamour as I spent most of my afternoon home doing laundry while composing articles and scheduling the rest f my week somewhat (and maybe needlessly) frantically.
The glamour came earlier when I wandered my way through the beautiful neighborhoods near the Highline– over the cobblestone, under the 100 year old brick houses with red painted doors, and past the Louboutin stores, making my way to the Degen SS13 presentation.
Any program sheet that includes piece names such as "Pizza Bra", "Hairy Onesie", and "Glory Hole T" is sure to be a hit with me and it was fun to arrive and watch the models dance and writhe "Liquid Sky Style" in their junk food and floral theme garb. My favorite piece was the "Pizza Beret"– a collaborative effort between Lindsay Degen and Amy Cakes. Degen also collaborated with Converse adding double platform harnesses to many of the sneakers which I consider a vast improvement.
I got a phallic tattoo at the tattoo station and drank a sparkling peach juice with new friends Allison and Mattie of myfriendgooo. I'll be dreaming of crocheted pizza all winter long.
I chose a modern sporty playful look for this sporty playful show. My hair was inspired in part by amy Cakes and also by the extreme humidity (btw- I went back to blonde and purple. Like it??). I'm wearing an H&M vegan leather skirt, Steve Madden heels, vintage earrings and ring , and a handmade bag. My top is by my friend SENA NYC and it's absolutely to die for! What's more, it has a matching skirt that I'll wear with it later in the week. More to come!
