Top 10 Essentials for New York Fashion Week

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

Gilt City Miami Warehouse Event Recap

If you watched my video that I posted yesterday merging a magnetic nail tutorial and a briefing on the Gilt City Miami warehouse event, then the following post will fit appropriately.  As I mentioned, I recently went to the Gilt City event here in Miami where invited guests were given the opportunity to peruse various high end designer items at a fraction of their original prices.  Gilt City is a membership only online store where you can purchase some quality pieces for a discount.  What made the warehouse event so unique was that it allowed you to actually walk in and try on the items before you purchase them, in addition to the extra price reduction made especially for the event.

I fell in love with many of the Valentino, Emilio Pucci, Marni and Missoni items.  Cocktails were provided in addition to sponsored products by PopChips, Vita Coco Coconut Water, KIND bars (LOVE these) and a live DJ was spinning in the upper area of the warehouse.  The lower portion had all of the clothing and home decor items while the upper section housed the shoe selection for men and women.

Unfortunately, most of the shoes were selected once I made it up there.  Imagine this if you will...I'm walking in heels, holding a 25lb baby on my hip, browsing the selection of clothes with my other hand and attempting to take photos with my camera for the blog.  Needless to say, it was quite the charade for me.  Overall, it was a great event filled with some exceptional designer pieces.  If there is a Gilt City event in your area, I suggest attending.  Check out my photo diary from the event below.
