How To Survive Not Being At NYFW.


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

A Tale Of Two Cities is one of my favorite books that I’ve reread 8 times and New York Fashion Week is my favorite event that I have attended 0 times. Erroneous, right? Since I am obsessed with Oscar and have more determination to have a conversation with Kelly Cutrone than any twenty-something PR girl probably should,  I’ll go soon enough – trust. BUT until I do, a girl has to keep busy. Stay occupied. Look forward. Move onward. Survive while watching Jason Wu’s show online and swooning over photo after photo of carefree models in gorgeous creations.

Fashion appreciators, we will get through this. How? Here are my suggestions:

Read something. I’m reading Dark Places and it’s scaring me to death but hey, I forget about not being in the same space as Tom Ford and his Spring Collection!

Netflix something. I decided to see if Orange IS the New Black and it’s scaring me to death! Also, it reminds me that one can never look put together in a prison jumpsuit, orange or any other gross color.

Eat something. Grab your friends and go eat something amazing since your job does not require you to be 5’11 and 102 pounds.

Stretch something. Yoga. Pilates. PureBarre. Think to yourself: How would Karlie Kloss prepare to walk in the DKNY show?

Buy something. Groceries, heels, a new bag. They’re all cheaper than five days in NYC. A little retail therapy soothes the soul and that’s a fact.

One thought on “How To Survive Not Being At NYFW.

  1. I’ve been following fashion week fun on Instagram and I’m a little jealous. I’m not such a fashionista, but it would still be fun to attend a show or two, maybe go behind the scenes for a while.
