On day three of New York Fashion Week, I went for a NY street style look. So many NYFW attendees wear denim; it is fun to see how they make it fabulous! I decided it was my turn to wear denim, and amp up my casual style into something street style worthy. I could not have done it without these fabulous denim pieces from New York denim brand Bridge & Boro.

Bridge & Boro makes the most fabulous denim pieces! They have limited edition pieces made from scarce denim fabric, as well as standard pieces in their collection with a timeless quality. The company is family owned and run; and the collection is made in New York!

It is extremely difficult to fit my body into jeans. I have always had a waist size much smaller than my hips and thighs. This is a problem many women have; let’s face it, we are hourglass for a reason! The majority of denim companies out there make their jeans for men, and then size them down for women without re-working them to actually fit a woman’s body. Bridge & Boro just fits. The jeans are made for women. The result is a flattering fit which will look amazing on most women. Love that!

In addition to a women’s denim collection, Bridge & Boro offers denim for men; which is just as fabulous as the women’s collection. Love! I definitely need to get a pair for my hubby!

Denim on denim is a huge trend this year. Although it has been going strong for the past couple of years, denim is bigger than life for spring 2017. Designers are showing it on everything from clothing to accessories. This is the perfect season to rock the denim on denim trend; and invest in some fabulous denim pieces!  For your perfect denim this spring, check out Bridge & Boro at bridgenboro.com.

It was fun wearing this outfit on day three of fashion week. I was snapped by several street style photographers outside the show. Here is a fun photo by fabulous street style photographer Denton Taylor:

Denton Taylor snapped this picture outside The Skylight Clarkson when I was on my way to my first show of the day; Asia Fashion Collection by Vantan. In addition to Asia Fashion Collection, on day three I went to Taoray Wang, Romeo Hunte, Yuna Yang, CG by Chris Gelinas, A Detacher, Georgine, and Francesca Liberatore. In addition to shows, I attended a fun blogger brunch hosted by Twiirly and Amour Vert. You can read about it here.

I am looking forward to wearing this denim on denim look by Bridge & Boro often this upcoming spring season; minus the jacket and scarf. It will look cute with slides, or high heel sandals. The pieces will also look fabulous worn with other items from my closet. They are so versatile and fabulous! Love!

Rain storm at fashion week

Wearing: hat (old, also love this one) / Chanel spring lipstick / ivory fringe earrings / Alexander McQueen scarf (the street style photogs loved this!)  / cozy black faux shearling jacket (on major sale!) / black tee / Gucci belt (current obsession) / destroyed boyfriend jeans (sold out, also love this pair) / Givenchy handbag / Chanel spring nail polish / black socks / silver street sneakers (under $150!!)

The forth day of New York Fashion Week, there was a crazy rain storm. I had planned to wear this beautiful floral maxi skirt with this jacket pictured above, and a black turtleneck. Alas, there was so much salt on the ground from the recent snow storm, and the puddles were so brown with dirt, I was too chicken to wear my beautiful new skirt in those conditions. I decided I would wear clothing which was machine washable, comfortable, and OK to get wet or dirty.

Surprisingly, many people wear casual clothing at fashion week. Not everyone is wearing the latest, greatest outfit. Not everyone is peacocking for the photographers, and not everyone is trying to be a runway show themselves. Therefore, when I wore this outfit, I blended into the crowd and even had my scarf snapped by photographers. Throughout the week the street style photogs were snapping pictures of my scarf. I didn’t see the photos appear anywhere, but hey, it’s fun anyway; especially since I love this scarf and have been wearing it non-stop since I purchased it in early fall 2016. Love that!

The temperatures were actually not cold on the fourth day of fashion week. They hovered in the 40’s, and the heat was cranked up inside the show venue, so wearing a short sleeve tee under my jacket was key for my overall comfort. This outfit turned out to be extremely practical for the conditions of the day, and it is also a fabulous casual look for transitioning from winter into spring as temperatures warm up. Love!

This was not a planned outfit, it was a bunch of pieces from my suitcase thrown together. Thankfully, it worked out! Since the rain was so strong, and the lighting was horrible, Kali’s hubby from In-Spades.com snapped these photos in the patio of our hotel. He did a great job compensating for the horrible lighting! I think the photos capture the essence of the weather that day.

Day four was another jam-packed day! My schedule included Marcel Ostertag, Elizabeth Kennedy, Verdad, Custo Barcelona, Leanne Marshall, Vivienne Hu, and Namilia. Normally Sunday at fashion week is on the calm side; a time to rest a little and see fewer shows than on other days-but not this season! Whew! These were great collections, I am so glad it was not a quiet day!

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you are loving fall 2017 from New York Fashion Week!

ThackerNYC at NYFW day two

Wearing: ivory tassel earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / black scarf, brand unknown, also love this one on sale / Suede Coat c/o Thacker NYC / dress c/o Thacker NYC (on sale!!!) / Chanel spring nail polish / black and rose gold watch / Givenchy handbag / leggings c/o Thacker NYC / black booties last season, also love this pair

Day two of New York Fashion Week was super busy! I attended Dan Liu, LANYU, Hakam Akkaya, Concept Korea, RtA, and Chromat. After the shows, I met up with fellow GenX blogger SimplySylvia. In order to survive a busy day like this, I needed to wear something comfortable!

Thacker NYC is a fabulous clothing brand based in New York City. Thier concept is to create a capsule wardrobe which can be mixed and matched, season after season. I love how this coat, tunic/dress, and leggings were perfect paired together for fashion week. When I get back home, and start heading into the spring season, I am looking forward to separating the pieces and mixing them into other outfits. They are so versatile! Love that!

I already wore the coat before fashion week. You can see how I styled it online here. This dress/tunic is great because it can be worn as a tunic over leggings or skinny jeans. It can also be worn as a dress. It will be really cute this summer with high heel sandals for dinner on a patio! Love!

With the athleisure trend in full swing, more on that from me later in the month, these Thacker NYC leggings will be front and center. They are made from extremely high quality fabric, and are so comfortable! Love!

You can find more versatile pieces for your wardrobe by Thacker NYC online at ThackerNYC.com.

Stay tuned! I will be reworking these pieces throughout the spring and summer seasons!
