Claudia here! I know you’re expecting me to say how much I love Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week…but it’s actually one of the most stressful weeks of my year!!! Why? I fall behind on my workload, and with invitations flooding my inbox, it’s impossible to choose which shows to go to because there are so many fantastic ones. Plus taxis are impossible to get in my darn Louboutin shoes and the pressure is ON to dress well…like I have that much time to think about what to wear every day!?
So I decided last season that the only way I can enjoy future Fashion Weeks is to treat them like a “fashion vacation” and not have any other expectations of myself beyond living and breathing fashion. And wow, what an amazing week it’s been:
1. From high school girls to high-heeled moms, hundreds of gal pals lined up at the Kate Spade boutique in Soho to get their copies of Tim Gunn’s new book Gunn’s Golden Rules by the fashion expert himself.
Psst! Have you heard about Kate Spade’s new Twirl ($18 for a rollerball) fragrance yet? If you’re in New York, stop by the Lafayette subway station tomorrow, Friday, September 17 (starting at 8am till inventory runs out) for a FREE Twirl sample!
