In the Northeast, transitioning your wardrobe into fall and eventually winter is no simple task. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put all of my summer clothes neatly away only to come head to head with an 80 degree day in late October. So I’ve since learned to transition into fall slowly and stylishly.
New York Fashion Week has once again come to an end. While part of me wishes I was going on to London, Paris and Milan to see the rest of the spring collections, I’m excited to once again resume daily workouts, Sunday morning brunches and return to a normal sleep schedule. Here are some of the highlights from the past few days of Fashion Week. I’m sure February will be even more fab!
I loved the perfectly flowing movement in Michael Costello’s SS16 collection inspired by feminine decadence.
Bold eyeshadow colors were a huge beauty trend on the runway this season. Here it is at Fashion Shenzhen.
I went to the top of Hearst Tower for Seventeen Magazine’s preview of essie’s new fall colors and saw this amazing view of Central Park.
I totally digged essie’s new fall colors…
and their sweet candy bar!
In between shows, lounges and parties where there’s rarely that much food, my friend Kristi (Currentlycrushing.com) and I managed to squeeze in a nice dinner. I hope to visit her in L.A. soon!
I finished off New York Fashion Week in the most stylish way possible – with a customized French Connection clutch!
We’re halfway through New York Fashion Week (At least I think we are. It gets hard to keep track of time when your life is this crazy). So far I’ve had such a great time adventuring around the city with Kristi of Currentlycrushing.com and going to fab shows like GEORGINE and Herve Leger. Can’t wait to see what fab shows and parties are to come. Follow @Aspiringsocialite on Instagram for the latest from #NYFW!

For SS16, Max and Lubov Azria celebrated the 30th anniversary of Hervé Léger by Max Azria by evolving beyond their signature bandage dress. For Spring 2016 the design house focused on highly textured patterns and innovative surface designs.
I loved their cutting edge use of neutrals, especially white. Their textured designs combined with neutral tones, make the onlooker see and remember the woman wearing the dress rather than just the dress. For the final walk, they showed some of their signature pieces curated from 2009 to the present which were amazing to see all together on the runway.
Over the past few New York Fashion Weeks, I’ve become a huge fan of GEORGINE. I absolutely love everything about her fun and in your face designs. In spite of the fact that I’m a strict vegetarian, I would totally sport one of her furs in a second. So when I was invited to see her SS16 collection at Skylight Moynihan Station, I couldn’t wait!
While I’m not sure what the inspiration behind this collection was, I totally got 60s and 70s vibes. I especially loved how she found creative ways to incorporate bright furs into her spring collection.
