As you all know, my blogger friends and I planned on doing a series on what we would wear to NYFW if we had a chance to go. Of course, I’d wear my tutu! I was on Instagram the next day and saw all my buddies at NYFW: posting selfies, street style, and clips from high-profile shows. At that very moment, I decided that I was actually going to fly to NY for the day and crash the Rachel Zoe show.

Here’s what happened…

I took the subway to Washington St. I then got lost. I hailed a cab. Got changed in the back of said cab. He dropped me off on the side of the building. I hopped out. Laid my tutu down. Threw on my crown and strutted into a barrage of hungry street photographers. They didn’t know my name, but they snapped. And snapped. And I posed and blew kisses. I even twirled. My time in the limelight was over once a ‘real’ celeb by. I was ok with that. I got my three seconds of fame. Ha.

(Fan pics: Nikki Minaj face. lol)

I got in line to the Rachel Zoe show as if I had an invite. I stood patiently, more pics were taken of me. Fashionistas stood beside me, in front of me, and in back. The doors opened. People began taking their invites out. I gulped. When it was my turn to go up. I explained to the chic gate-keepers dressed in all black. I told them I was a blogger from Detroit. I flew in just on the belief that I would get into the Rachel Zoe show.

(Dude’s face in the back: priceless)

The girls in black looked at me like I was crazy for wasting their precious time and politely said no. No ticket. No entry. I nodded and took the walk of shame out the opening. I fluffed my tutu and hailed a cab to NYFW Headquarters. I wouldn’t be defeated.

I stopped by Chanel’s Meet My Boyfriend (the watch’s name) Exhibit. And received all the fan love after I was just denied access to Rachel Zoe’s show. I felt better already.

(They even let me try on a very expensive, fancy, schmancy watch encrusted with diamonds.)

After I left Chanel, I went across the street to NYFW Headquarters. Some of the people were a little snooty, but then I met this cool student and her friend (who took the pic).

I asked Chloe if I could capture her style, and then we started talking. She’s an indie designer living in NYC.

So that is half of my story of how I crashed (or tried to crash) NYFW in my tutu and crown!

The 2nd part of my journey will be posted soon.

The story doesn’t stop here…

Q: What was the inspiration/story behind your look?

Jordan: This look was actually inspired off of a few different NYFW shows for this fall/winter season and was spotted on Olivia Palermo shortly after. 

Q: How would you define your style?

Jordan: Honestly I can’t define my style, I’m a Jill of all trades, well…of all styles.  I think the crux of my style revolves around ease, comfort and wearing what makes me feel confident regardless of if I am dressing for work or the weekend.

Q: Who are your style icons?

Jordan: I honestly draw inspiration from so many people, but if I had to name a few they would be: Esther Quek, Olivia Lopez, Mary Seng, Christina Caradona and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. 

Q: Where do you like to shop?

Jordan: Everywhere! Lol no really, I don’t like to limit myself because you can miss out on some gems that way.  My favorite places to shop are definitely ASOS, H&M, and TJ Maxx.

Q: Have you ever been to NYFW, if so when and what was your fave part?

Jordan: Sadly I haven’t been yet, but I’m saving up for next year 😀

Q: Who is your fave designer?

Jordan: Gaaah, honestly I don’t hang on designers like most fashion people but I definitely enjoy Altuzzara. 

Q: Whose show are you most looking forward to this year?

Jordan: I really am interested to see Pyer Moss, especially since he’ll be showing a video addressing racism. 

Q: What do you like about NYFW more, the runway shows or the street style and why?

Jordan: Street style hands down!  Unless you’re a fashion maven or celebrity a lot of the ready to wear clothes just don’t seem functional to me, but the street style always gives me awesome ideas on how to re-wear what I already own.

Q: Links to any social media pages?

Eden: My name is Eden and I’m a life + style blogger, actress, filmmaker and new mompreneur. I blog under Chic in the Tropics, which I’ve had since 2009.; and I have a small but full-service video production company called Reel Clever Films.  I’m pretty old in the blogosphere! When I’m not busy shooting something for fun or my business, some of the things I love doing is to check out a movie, studying new techniques about my craft, and of course, shopping!

 

Q: What was the inspiration/story behind your look?

 

Eden: I’ve never been a gal who owns a lot of long, flowy dresses, and yet, I zeroed in on this gorgeous electric pleat goddess dress. I wanted to make it very “me” and street-ready by adding the usual suspects from my closet – a black fedora, my go-to leather jacket, and laceup flats. That’s me trying to go out of my usual comfort zone.

Q: How would you define your style?

 

Eden: Contemporary, parts edgy, parts minimal, parts androgynous. A lot of black and white separates. I like to keep things basic with a bit of a kick. 

 

Q: Who are your style icons?

 

Eden: Kate Lanphear, Alexander Wang, Erin Wasson

 

Q: Where do you like to shop?

 

Eden: As a new mom with a budget, I’m definitely a huge fan of bargains! There is no awesome bargain I will refuse, haha. I love shopping at Saks Off 5th, Barney’s Warehouse, and my absolute favorite: Nordstrom Rack! Ebay has always been pretty good to me lately when it comes to awesome fashion deals.

Q: Have you ever been to NYFW, if so when and what was your fave part?

 

Eden: I have never been, but it’s definitely in my personal bucket list! Even if I don’t get personally invited to a show (I’m still dreaming for the day, haha) , just to be able to see the NYFW experience for myself and see New York so alive and filled with fashionistas is awesome in itself.

 

Q: Who is your fave designer?

 

Eden: It’s very hard for me to pinpoint one particular designer, but my top five includes Alexander Wang, Rick Owens, Rad Hourani, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, and my best friend, Philippine fashion designer, Yves Camingue. 

 

Q: Whose show are you most looking forward to this year?

 

Eden: Aside from some of the designers mentioned above, Viktor and Rolf! You can always trust them to do something unexpected and jawdropping.

Q: What do you like about NYFW more, the runway shows or the street style and why?

 

Eden: I would say a little bit of both. You can always trust the shows to usher in the key trends for next year; and as a personal style blogger, the street style aspect is so perfect to take sartorial cues from. 

 

Q: Links to any social media pages?

 

Eden: Aside from my blog, you can also connect with me through Instagram here and my facebook group page here.

As you can see, none of us are going to be attending Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. (Pause) *Cries eyes out* So kidding. Although some of us are slightly disgruntled to not be apart of the shows, street style, and glam after-parties with mega supermodels, we decided to have our own little NWFW inspired shoot in none other but the D!

So, JB (with the fur) came up with an idea. Let’s play in clothes (what we usually do anyway) and come up with what we’d wear if we were going to attend NYFW. Genius idea. And how can I deny a photoshoot with the baes 🙂

Our goal here was to fake laugh, which turned into full blown cackles, witch laughter, and hooting. lol

Along with our photographer Scott of Worldiction Arts, we welcomed Nigel, the cool videographer.

Shout out to Alua Aumade for the black and white handmade neck piece (jabot). He’s also got some dope bow-ties. Support your local businesses and check out his Etsy.

We’ll be posting pics of the entire photo shoot the entire week of NYFW on all of our blogs. Stay turned, fashionistas.

I remember being a girl very much so into fashion and going to stores where they had a small, tiny sections for plus-size women all the way in the back of the store or near the furniture, in the basement. No effort was put into the style of the mannequins. No bright colors or bold prints. The spaces were drab and dull. But the straight-size section was up front. Colors and racks upon racks of choices. A true stylista’s playground. For a little girl who was a size 16 at 13 years old, how do you think that made me feel? How many of us has had to take the walk of shame to the plus-size section and settle? So, I bought a pair of jeans that were three sizes too small. My “fitspo” jeans. If I could starve myself enough to get into those jeans, shop in the straight-size section, then and only then would my worth align. Worth hadn’t belong to fatties like me. Or that’s what society had brainwashed me to believe. Although we have a long way to go, I’m so glad there are a retailers out there that I can actually fit my wide size 24 thighs into these @warpweftworld jeans and top comfortably. Have you ever bought too small clothes for motivation to lose weight? What size were you when you were little? Any body can chime in. Let’s chat.
