Now that New York Fashion Week has arrived once again, it's only appropriate that I share my must-have items for the unprecedented moment in a fashion addict's life where one must run around the big city nonstop. There can't possibly be enough time in each day to attend all of the fashion shows, events or presentations in addition to finding time to eat. Therefore, my "Top 10" essentials should keep one pretty well prepared for the unexpected (meaning that cell phone dies in the midst of the day and the panic begins).
1) eos offers these perfectly sized lip balms that can easily fit in a small purse or cosmetics big inside a large bag. Since New York isn't exactly having tropical weather right now, lip balm is a must while braving the cold weather (especially if you plan on making the trip to Alexander Wang's most talked about show in Brooklyn)
2) A scarf is just something obviously everybody will need at some point in New York City
3) An oversized black handbag is a classic piece that is necessary for carrying everything that is needed for the day and saves one from packing numerous handbags or purses
Some other essentials for the purse include a:
4) Mophie juice battery pack in the event that a cell phone has a breakdown and needs to be recharged
5) I love this Evian facial water spray for rehydrating the skin through the dry and cold weather, or to simply freshen up in between shows
6) J. Crew has a great selection of colored cocoon coats which are ultra trendy for the season
7) UGG's Nicoletta boots will not only keep feet warm while walking from show to show, but they are made of the finest leather and look fabulous with anything
8) KIND bars are great for a little pick-me-up while on the go
9) Fashion GPS is a great app to help organize fashion shows invites within one platform
10) A long oversized sweater or sweater dress can be rocked multiple ways
