NY Fashion Week: What We Wore, Day 1

It’s the first day of New York Fashion Week and I’m feeling very erudite so this is my back-to-school look! Though if I'm going to be 100% honest, I wore this near exact outfit last night for a dinner held at the Four Seasons Restaurant in honor of Brian Atwood's new store and ad campaign, which just goes to show how versatile the look is.

I’m wearing head-to-toe Michael Kors from Macy's (can’t wait to see what he has in store this season, I’m dying over his Fall 2012 plaid scarf coats at the moment). Pencil skirts can sometimes be hard to walk in – or at least hard to walk fast in – but this one is nice and stretchy so I can run from place to place as though I were wearing a pair of trousers. The side black paneling also adds a nice slimming touch, while the top, which is slightly sheer, takes the outfit into a more fashion-forward and less severe direction.

Day one of Fashion Week is always one of my favorites because every season it starts off with the BCBG show. As much as I love seeing the likes of Marchesa and J. Mendel – two perennial favorites – it’s exciting when you’re watching fashion come down the runway that you know you will be able to indulge in guilt-free come spring. Another big one today is Richard Chai (will his bestie Phillip Lim be in the audience?) and, of course, I’m excited for Fashion’s Night Out. I'm brainstorming my outfit change for the evening’s festivities already…
