Redemption Pre-Fall For Lookbook Friday

By Posted on 0 min read 824 views

Fashion Week is in full swing here in New York. And I am quite busy this week running to shows and shooting street style. I am getting a glimpse of what is coming for fall and the trends that we will be wearing this time next year. And it seems the statement sleeve and ruched eighties dress is not going anywhere any time soon. Reformation’s pre-fall collection does indeed have a decidedly eights vibe to it along with a can’t be missed rock-n-roll edge. Moto jackets, metallic skinny jeans and accompanying low slung belts, big shouldered mini dresses and plenty of black define this lineup with it’s youthful vigor and after dark appeal.

NYFW Fall 2020 Street Style #2

Here is the next installment of my NYFW Fall 2020 street style photos. I am happy to have these photos to sift through, edit and retouch. It gives me something to focus on and distract me from all that is happening. I can not lie, it is all a bit over-whelming. There are some days I wake up and feel like I am in an episode of Black Mirror. I am doing my best to take it one day at a time and I guess that is all we can do.

Yes it is now April and I am finally sharing with my first round of NYFW street style photos for Fall 2020. I must say it seems like ages ago with everything that has been happening in the world. Fashion Week with it’s fashion shows, and so many people gathering together to celebrate their love of fashion. Having the freedom to go where ever I want. Taking for granted that I can practice my craft and shoot street style. Socializing and mingling with other people without giving it a second thought. We are indeed living in trying times. I hope these photos bring you some joy. I hope this throwback to a happier time will serve as inspiration for the future and brighter days.

Here is my third look that I wore to NYFW I wore this to the Flying Solo shows. Again it was a rainy day but on this day I only went to the shows and didn’t do any street style shooting. For this look I am wearing a dress and a skirt together. This dress or the top part is from And Other Stories and I bought it two winters ago. The skirt is from a company called Ark & Co and this is the first time I am wearing it, though I have owned it for a few years now.

On March 8th I attended an off the grid Fashion Week show which took place after Fashion Week ended. It took place at the Scandinavia House in NYC for the label LANDEROS. I had a few reservations about attending the show, though on March 8th the situation was still not seen as dire. The week before on Sunday March first I attended a birthday dinner for a friend. The topic of the virus came up and most agreed that we would have some cases in the States…

Happy Friday everyone today I am sharing with you a show I attended for the up and coming label Landeros. It was held at The Scandinavia House on Sunday the 8th when people were still OK with going out and about, though the city was noticeably more quite with less people out on the streets. There was a short runway show followed by a presentation, the feeling in the air was celebratory with everyone obviously impressed with the Fall 2020 collection.

NYFW My Style Look #1

Whew busy with my NYFW vlogs but now I am finally able to share with you my first look for NYFW. This fashion week I only wore one brand new item: a hat I bought on sale at Zara. Everything else this season I either thrifted or shopped my closet. For this look I wore sunnies from Bottega Veneta which I picked up at sample sale at a former job. The scarf I bought so long ago I can not recall where I got it, and the sixties style patent bomber I got at Zara about four years ago; I wore it on my very first trip to Paris, so needles to say it holds fond memories for me. The skirt was thrifted at Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn and the boots I bought about six years ago are from Cole Haan…

NYFW Fall 2020 Vlog Part One

By Posted on 1 min read 1926 views

Here is part one of my NYFW Fall 2020 vlog. I decided to post the my NYFW coverage in two parts. In this video which is about twenty minutes long, covers the first couple of days. Personally, I prefer longer videos as when I am on YouTube I like to settle in and not have to keep searching for something to watch every ten minutes. But an hour is a bit long and I did’t want my computer to start smoking when I exported the video. At any rate, I take you to the shows at Spring Studios and Pier 59 as well as what I got up to between the shows. And stayed tuned for Part two coming next week.
