New York Fashion Week Day 1
It is official fashion month has begun. New York Fashion week has started and I could not be more excited to share with you all my daily diary page of my every day during fashion week. This is going to be as detailed as possible so you can know exactly what went down today.
Thursday February 8
8am: Rise and shine, woke up to a sunny but cold day to start off fashion week. The Indigo Hotel Lower East Side is going to be my second home for this 9 days.
9am: Gym time. I feel exercise makes my day better since it is a stress reliever and makes me listen to my favorite music. After that went back to my room and the hotel already had my breakfast served in my room.
11am: After my shower I had the best team with me to help me get ready. For my hair I had the Dry Bar team making my hair look fabulous. For today's look we went for a straight shiny hair. After they were done I started to do my makeup. I adore trying new styles and trends. I went for a natural look with peach eyeshadow and nude lips.
12:30pm: I was ready to get into my first outfit. I went with a hat by Free People, sunglasses by Le Specs, Sweater by MNG, Jacket by MNG, pants from Good American, my purse from Gucci and my boots from Alexander Wang.
1pm: Before I headed to the show I went to Dr.Smood to have my favorite green smoothie and I couldn't resist to get the Avocado Sandwich.
2pm: I arrived to Malan Breton fashion show. I was so excited to see my friends, fashion editors, photographers and off course Mr. Malan Breton itself. Last season his collection blew me away so I was thrilled to attend his show today.
Show started and left me speechless. For more on every show and collections there is another post in the Fashion Editorial section. Remember this is only my diary.
3:30pm: After the show finished I went to take some picture at certain locations with the outfit I was wearing. After freezing my hands, nose and ears I got some amazing pictures for you guys.
5pm: After the freezing experience of shooting under -4 degrees celsius or 24 degrees fahrenheit, I had to warm my body so decided to go to my must go spot in NYC. If you know me then you know i'm talking about Ladurée in Soho. I went with my dad and had a delicious hot chocolate with pastries.
6:30pm: Got to the hotel and had my hair experts from Dry Bar take care of my change of look. I was amazed by the things they can do with my hair. We went for a more dramatic look. They braided my hair with a Burberry scarf and made a side ponytail. OMG I loved it so much even though it was really heavy. The only thing I changed in my makeup was my lips. I went with red bold lip color and a dramatic hair statement.
7:30pm: Once my hair and makeup was done I had to change into my second look of the day.
Pants from Levis 721 high rise pants
Sweater from J.Crew
Coat from Zara
Head Scarf from Burberry
Shoes from Alexander Wang
7:45pm: Ran like Forrest Gump (to the car) and headed to the last show of the day by Jeanette Limas. During my car rides I do a million things on my phone until I arrive to the venue.
8:05pm: I arrived on time to the show. Thank God there was no traffic. I had my picture taken by the photographers and took my seat. I was excited for her show since she had beautiful pieces I had seen before.
8:15pm: The show started by a girl singing amazing to old famous songs. The pieces of the collection were stunning and how the runway was placed it was perfect for everyone to see it clearly. After the show ended I had the chance to go backstage and get to see each piece up close and talk to Jeanette Lima about her inspiration on the collection.
9pm: After the show ended I headed to a fitting for..... (it is a secret until tomorrow's post). What I can say is that my outfit is amazing and can't wait to show you loves.
10pm: Stopped at a pharmacy to get my Neutrogena makeup wipes since I ran out of them. Check my skin routine blog post for more about the products I use.
10:30pm: I finally arrived at the hotel and ordered room service because I was starving. I took my makeup off which felt amazing and changed into my pjs. Currently eating while I watch Project Runway.
11pm: Finished the blog post for day 1 of NYFW.
