The Stylewright's New York Fashion Week 2017 Recap
New York Fashion Week 2017
Hey Ya’ll. I’ve been posting a lot about the past New York Fashion Week lately, and I’m finally here with the recap. (To see what I wore, you can find my previous two New York Fashion Week 2017 outfit posts HERE and HERE).
Looking back at this past season, this was by far the best and busiest I have ever been to. Luckily, this season, I felt more prepared. I actually put some short videos together that I was able to capture pre-Season and during the shows. Click HERE to enjoy the clips! (don’t forget to comment, like and subscribe.) 🙂
An exclusive look behind-the-scenes styling Aria Jay
Hey guys! The Stylewright is back and better than evahhh! After NYFW, I thought things would slow down a bit, but boy was I wrong. Meetings, parties, events, and styling sessions inundated my weekly calendar. In this post, I will highlight two events: 1) The Daniel Wellington Black Classic Watch Campaign and 2) Being a Stylist for singer-songwriter Aria Jay.
Daniel Wellington Black Classic Campaign
I had a great kickoff to fun-filled events by being part of the Daniel Wellington #BlackClassic campaign. Not only did they send me their newest watch, they also invited me to a photoshoot where only 8 other influencers were selected. The shoot was at the super cute Daniel Wellington Pop-Up shop in Soho. Everything was so professional: the photographer, the setup, and the rest of the DW team. At the end, they offered me “bubbles” (which I found out meant champagne in Swedish). And then the next evening, I met some amazing bloggers at their Classic Black Launch Party, and was gifted with yet another watch! Their new NATO strap is super cool and stylish- I don’t have to worry about the leather stretching out or breaking, so it is a great option.

The Busiest Day of My Life!
Now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for (oh, so anxiously, so sorry….been so busy) *drumroll please* …my recap of NYFW Day 1!
I wasn’t kidding about taking some mental notes to be prepared for NYFW, by the way. You can read about my NYFW tips HERE to save yourself next time (or to laugh at me, whatever suits your fancy). Unfortunately, on my first morning, I already had made my first mistake. I left late from my apartment, and because there was an insurmountable amount of traffic, I basically missed my 1st show. Lovely start to a NYFW right? Well, we all make mistakes here and there – I am vowing to myself to never make them again!
Nonetheless, I missed the wonderful show of Nicholas K, but I was able to obtain these breathtaking photos of his work.
Nicholas K SS ’17
Nicholas K SS ’17
This guy is definitely a bold one – mixing his grunge-like style with lightweight fabrics and asymmetrical trims. The colors of his SS ‘17 collection were natural and earth-toned, yet there was a sort of metallic shimmer to the fabrics. It seemed as though he was trying to challenge every concept with its contrast and he had managed to brilliantly harmonize the opposing sides. (Shop Nicholas K below).
Next on the agenda was the wonderful Noon by Noor. This collection was the polar opposite of Nicholas K’s. Lots of blushes, creams, whites, and the occasional blacks glided down the runway. There was a feeling of serenity as I observed each beautiful piece. Some of them looked so lightweight, sheer, lace-y, and comfortable that I would have mistaken some pieces for extremely luxurious pajama sets. Kudos to Noon by Noor. (Shop Noon by Noor below)

P.S. This is my VLOG debut!!!
You wake up in the morning. Your eyes reluctantly open as sun-rays reach through the blinds. You plant your feet down to stand. Your legs feel like they’re dragging on the floor as you make your way to the bathroom. You flick on the lights and look at yourself in the mirror. You tell yourself, “God, this is horrible. I hate waking up so early.” You’re not happy with what you see or how you feel.
Today, look around you and smile.
Too often we get caught up in the little things in life and immerse ourselves in what we only think matters. Once in awhile make sure to sit back, take a breath, and appreciate how beautiful the world can be. 🙌🏼
You owe it to yourself to accept the gift of beauty around you. Leave your stresses behind for a second and look at the pretty flowers and animals in the park you pass by every morning. If time allows, do yourself a favor and walk inside. Life’s too short to rid yourself of what the world has to offer.
You need to understand that it is not your fault. It is simply not. Been there, done that. Blaming yourself or blaming the other person and dwelling on whose fault it really was is not going to get you any further in the healing process. The only way to move on is to grow and improve yourself until you are one badass chick who no one can tear down.
