Georgine has been one of my favorite designers for a few seasons now. I absolutely love her style and love it even more now thanks to her stunning Fall 2016 collection.
My favorite part about this collection had to be the diversity of the pieces. It included dark lacy/sheer pieces for night along with beautiful dresses and coat separates for daytime or more casual events. It was basically like seeing my entire dream wardrobe go down the runway. I simply can’t get enough of Georgine’s dramatic dresses, trenches and fur details. It’s kind of an obsession.
I’m so honored to have captured this Fall collection and to have been there to see it go down the runway at New York Fashion Week. I can’t wait to see what the talented Georgine comes out with next!
New York Fashion Week may look glamourous on Instagram (and in many ways it is), but for us bloggers, it can be a hectic week of back to back events and absolutely no sleep. Luckily, there’s a part of Fashion Week that’s exactly the opposite. In the New York Fashion Week lounges, coffee and champagne flow freely and you can relax with your BFFs (Best Fashion Friends). Talented hair and makeup artists are often on hand to help you look picture perfect in your street style photos and if you’re really lucky, you’ll be treated to some sweet swag such as makeup, handbags and jewelry. It’s every girl’s dream come true!
When you’re running around all day, lounge time is a must to recharge yourself and your cell phone. While many bloggers use their Fashion Week lounge time to get out posts in between shows, I like to make the most of the branded experiences and catch up with my blogger friends. If you didn’t have time to do your hair or get a manicure before the shows, a lounge can be a lifesaver. Maybe someday we can make New York Lounge Week a thing?
Here’s what my lounge life has been like so far this New York Fashion Week:
I had an amazing time catching up with my blogger friends at the ShopStyle lounge! I even got this monogrammed GiGi New York purse. It’s the
Stylists from R+Co did an amazing job on my hair at the ShopStyle Lounge and taught me how to do modern curls.
The Maybelline Lounge on the top floor of Milk Studios was the perfect way to end the day. They had an awesome deejay and I got to stock up on my favorite Maybelline products.
I walked on a virtual runway in the E! News and TRESemmé Lounge at Skylight at Moynihan Station.
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.
