New York Fashion Week:: Day I BCBG

i’ve missed you, kids!  being away from blogging an entire week, while experiencing so much I wanted to share with you just didn’t feel right.  for those of you who don’t follow along on my social media channels {tsk tsk}, i have been in New York for Fashion Week the past nine days!  there were mini reunions with friends in the industry, meetings with new people, fun collaborations, witnessing breathtaking collections first hand, eating like a champ, and somehow i have lived to tell about it.  yes, i’m coming down with a cold {just like last season}. . . but it was very well worth it.  i moved around three times during my stay in the city, but initially started in Brooklyn with my dear friend Mary Anne.  she and i were roomies the summer in interned in NYC, so it was really special getting to catch up!

the first official day of NYFW {which was bright and early} started with 

BCBG Max Azria

 at Lincoln Center.  lubov azria and her husband sent down a very muted palette of white, talc, black, and cream. . . with a small touch of coral.  75% of the looks were overlaid with leather harnesses in either black or white, which dramatically sexed up the flowy chiffon and lace numbers.  you can see what my "fresh pick" is below, but what is yours?  i wanna know-- would


wear this collection?

oh!  and here is what i wore day one...
