Thrifty Threads – Fashion Week Uniform

Sigh, it’s Fashion Week in NYC. Although I have a style blog and my background is in fashion, I kinda sorta hate Fashion Week. There, I finally admitted it. But, I still have to attend some shows and events so the inevitable question becomes what to wear. I love a girly dress, but I tend to go casual chic during Fashion Week, especially when Fall gives us chilly, rainy weather.

Instead of an over the top outfit, I usually stick with one statement piece, typically a pair of heels.

The shoes, do you see those shoes?!?! Yeah, the red spike heel and leopard platform are just gorgeous. I recently picked these up during the Loehmann’s Fall Preview event.

The rest of my outfit was super simple: plaid blazer, fun t-shirt, black skinny jeans, large bangles and an oversized bag.

The large bag is functional and stylish. It’s big enough to fit my camera, phone, invites and the ever important pair of flats.

  1. You look cute…but the checked / plaid jacket is hideous!!! You should have went with anotha jacket-a solid. and why do you hate Fashion week? It’s a week of self expression and the showing off of clothes by our fav designers.

    • I love plaid, so I went with plaid versus a solid jacket, which I think would have been a bit boring. Fashion Week is just way too hectic for me so I’m not a big fan of it. 

  2. I love those shoes…very cute. Wait did you say you hate Fashion week!! Eck! Well it can be a bit crazy and overwhelming this time of year. So many shows, so many people, so little time. 

  3. HOT shoes….and I’ve got that bag, too – in purple…an invaluable gift from a friend…digging your style and this blog…new follower on the strength of Karen Good’s referral….

    • Thanks Joyce. Isn’t that bag amazing? I can fit everything I need (and don’t need) in there! So glad you found me via Karen. Love her 🙂
