NYFW – Saturday – Lafayette 148, Taoray Wang, Son Jung Wan

September 18, 2018

My Saturday in New York was another full day of fashion week fun!  On this day, I had two amazing shows to look forward to AND I got to wear sharp city chic look compliments of Lafayette 148 NY!

My Lafayette 148 NY Outfit

Emerging Wool Heather Blazer

The classic wool blazer never goes out of style so it’s a piece that is well worth investing in. I’ll be wearing this beautiful navy blue structured jacket for years to come.

Globetrotter Triangles Silk Jacquard Scottie Blouse

This beautiful classic silk shirt has such a cool 70’s inspired geometric print with shades of navy blue and gold.

Curated Corduroy Mercer Flare Pant

It’s no secret that I love a flared hem and these pants have the perfect flare.  Normally I would avoid corduroy pants for fear that they would add bulk, but these thin cords are super flattering.

Tortoise Half Moon Earrings

Fun tortoise earrings finish off the look by echoing the gold tones in the shirt.

Feeling like a boss babe, I headed out to Spring Studios to see two incredible shows!

Taoray Wang

The Taoray Wang show got off to a late start.  Tiffany Trump was in the front row and I wouldn’t be surprised if the secret service stalled things a bit. But Taoray Wang is always well worth any wait!

Taoray always brings the drama with to die for suits with the coolest details.  I think if I had to chose only one Taroay piece to have and keep, I would pick a belt.  From the obi belts of SS18  the grommet belts of SS19, I feel like a Taoray belt just makes everything a million times cooler.  Taoray also wows us with amazingly tailored suits with impeccable and interesting details. This time around I was mesmerized by the square shoulders.  Though the suits looked amazing in virgin white and ballerina pink, my favorite shade was the vibrant fuchsia!

Son Jung Wan

Son Jung Wan boasted some celebrity attendees as well.  I was excited to see  Kelly Rutherford of Gossip Girl fame. I’m sure she’s been in a lot of other things, but she will always be Lily van der Woodsen to me.  I also spotted Caroline Vazzana, author of Making it in Manhattan.  I have met her before and she is always super sweet.

The Son Jung Wan show is always full of whimsy, sparkle, and shine. I loved the vibrant florals and the dramatic black and white color blocked looks.  My very favorite look was the black and white check pattern with the iridescent blue embroidery on top … so cool and so eye catching!

With my fashion week runway shows behind me, the only activity I had left on my NYFW schedule was the big rewardStyle party … and of course I needed to glam up and look party ready for that!  The full scoop coming soon!

And while you’re waiting, did you see my fabulous “Carrie” necklace?!
