NY Fashion Week: What We Wore, Day 2

How awesome is this Elie Tahari vest? I love the layered monochromatic look and its contrasting textures and I nearly jumped with excitement when I saw that it was marked down (gotta love Labor Day Weekend shopping). I paired it over a crushed white cowl neck Michael Kors top, but it could go equally well over something with sleeves come the cooler weather. As for my trousers, I’m completely obsessed with these stretch denim Michael Kors jeans – they are beyond comfortable and they expand with your body should you overdose on Pop Chips or whatever else you may find yourself coming across at Fashion Week-related events.

I’m a big fan of black and white, but a touch of brown was worked into this look via the platform on the Calvin Klein shoes. This is a super versatile look (picked up at Macy's) that can take me from day to night, and that’s crucial if I have any hope of making it to the Electric Room for a Fashion Week party after the shows today.

On the fashion front, the show I’m most excited for today is Kate Spade. Who would have thought? The company has really transformed and I love its quirky aesthetic. It will also be interesting to see what Nicole Miller has in store for us. I’m hoping she sticks with what she does best and doesn’t go overly colorful like she did last spring.
