College Fashion Week 2014

college fashion week new york

With the pressures of the real world constantly building up, I often like to pretend that I’m back in college. Over the weekend, I relived my collegiate years when I sat front row at New York’s College Fashion Week hosted by Her Campus. Having covered New York Fashion Week for many seasons, I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, after an amazing evening of fashion, talent and fun, I wish that I was back in college more than ever and can’t wait to experience College Fashion Week all over again next year.

The evening started off with cocktails, hairdos by TRESemmé, custom foundation by bareMinerals and eyebrows by European Wax Center. When the show began, college students who could have been mistaken for professional models strutted down the runway in the latest fall fashions from boohoo.com.

While the first collection consisted of imperial styles filled with sleek military glam, the second was entitled “Brooklyn Princess” and featured pink, powdery sporty separates. The third collection, Woodlanders, was my favorite. I loved the forest prints and earthy hues for fall. In between each collection, talented college students performed incredible music and dance routines including Columbia Sharp, Columbia University’s All Male A Capella group. I guess that’s something New York Fashion Week doesn’t have – cute Ivy League men singing John Legend ballads.

An Exclusive Interview with Choupette Lagerfeld

choupette_on_Karl_Lagerfeld

Anyone who’s anyone still doesn’t live as fabulous a life as Choupette Lagerfeld. As the famous first lady of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld’s adorable feline is pampered with all the Chanel couture, maids and fabulousness she can handle. In Choupette’s world, white will always be the new black. As a fellow socialite, she was kind enough to grant me an interview.

1. What advice do you have for people looking to live the socialite life?

The first step is to surround yourself with the right crowd. Or if you’re lucky enough (like moi), be born into fashion royalty.

2. How do you feel about Hello Kitty not being a real cat?

I feel like my childhood has been a lie. But, it’s one less feline to compete with.

3. What would you do if you saw someone carrying a fake Chanel bag?

The claws would come out!

4. You’ve already accomplished more than most humans. What do you have planned next after a book, a makeup line and collections inspired by you?

The sky is the limit for the Choupette empire!

5. What’s the key to success in the fashion industry?

Work hard as an intern, but delegate & produce like a CEO.

6. How does it feel to be the inspiration around various fashion collections?

Can felines be humble?

7. Who is your favorite fashion icon?

Excuse the cliche, but Daddy Karl Lagerfeld of course!

8. What’s the most important etiquette a socialite should follow?

Be seen and not heard. But, when you’re heard, make it on the front page of Women’s Wear Daily!

9. How many maids does one need to lead a comfortable life?

Can you ever have too many?

10. What’s your favorite vacation spot?

Anywhere Daddy’s private jet takes me!

Fall Wish List

Fall Wish List

What I love most about fall is breaking out my skinny jeans, boots and light sweaters. The comfortable chill in the air, gets me thinking about Halloween and apple cider. The changing leaves also play a huge role in my style choices during the fall months. In celebration of fall, here’s my shopping list of fab fall fashions:

1. House Of Harlow 1960 Tribal Tooth Pendant: Tribal styles are a great way to take your fall style to the next level. Not only are the patterns unique, they also mimic the changing leaves perfectly.

2. Kate spade new york ‘lorin hanover street’ leather dome satchel: Fall is a great time to upgrade your black bag that you wore out last winter – and there’s no better choice than kate spade.

3. Camel Detachable Fur Lined Hood Contrast Trims Cape: I’ve always wanted a cape and this one is to die for! Fall is the best time to wear capes as they can be a stylish alternative to a light jacket. With winter being so cold, they often get covered up. So take the opportunity to show them off during fall.

4. Sephora Favorites Draw The Line: I love black eyeliner, especially liquid. However, I don’t wear it much in the summer because the heat often melts it off. So in the fall, I kind of go crazy with the liner.

5. Vince Camuto ‘Karita’ Over the Knee Boots: There’s nothing sexier for fall than over the knee boots. Aside from being sexy, they keep you warm and go with anything. With all the walking I do around NYC, I wore out my old pair last year. I’m dying to get these.

6. Old Navy Women’s Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Shirt: Nothing says fall like a good flannel shirt. They’re cute enough to make you feel like you’re going apple picking on the farm when you’re really going to dinner in the city. Plus, they go perfectly with dark skinny jeans and over the knee boots.

Arm Party!

Arm Party

The other day, I paired some of my favorite pieces with a fresh coat of nail polish and threw myself an arm party. Those in attendance included my C.Wonder Enamel Initial Cuff, Eye of Ja Malachite Tassel Bangle, Kendra Scott Naomi Double Ring and a vintage Timex.  My nail polish was Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture - Venice Beach Venus. I then topped off my accessories binge with an iced coffee from one of my favorite coffee shops. Party on!

How to Make Everyday a Fashion Show

Coco Chanel fashion quote

Life is meant to be lived to its fullest, and that starts with being proud of who you are. There’s no shame in showing the world your confidence and style. No matter who you are or where you’re from, you don’t have to be a movie star or a supermodel to have style, and you don’t have to be a millionaire to be classy and admired.

Finding Your Personal Style

Being chic and classy begins with being yourself and having a clear understanding of what works for you. Once you know what looks work for you, start combining them with what’s in style. Fashion recommendations come to us constantly without us even searching for them. We’re bombarded so often, that most of us don’t even pay attention. However, it never hurts to keep your eyes open and make a note of what you like or what you’d like to avoid.

The Cherry on Top

Once you have a clear feel for the kind of style you have and how you’d like it to evolve, every day really becomes a fashion show. To go along with the classy themes that I like to embody, I’d love to someday sport a Rolex. Though it’s not cheap, it’s the quintessential accessory for any man or woman who wants to show (not tell) that he or she is the embodiment of class and ambition. The Rolex, as you all know, is much more than just a watch or a gorgeous piece of jewelry, it’s a statement of passion and drive. If you’re interested in a myriad styles of stunning timepieces, go to either The Watch Buyers Group or ALTIN place and enjoy bringing your daily fashion show to the next level.
