New York Fashion Week Favorites

February 19, 2010

Filed Under : STYLE

I’ve spent the last several days compiling a list of my favorite images from New York Fashion Week. After looking through every single runway show and presentation from the past week, I have about 175 images that I’ve saved in a “favorite” folder on my desktop. Yes, it’s quite a list! Of course, I won’t bore you with all 175 images so I’ve narrowed it down even further to my top 40 looks. I guess that’s still a large number of favorites but I just couldn’t condense any further!

Overall, my favorite collections were Rag & Bone, Suno, and Proenza Schouler. The level of layering at Rag & Bone was borderline dramatic (aka perfection), the exotic prints at Suno were unique and fun, and the Proenza collection was just the right amount of leg.

Though those were my overall favorite collections, there were so many high points over the course of New York Fashion Week. Here are my favorites!!*

Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

I PROMISE I’ve been good this year. I graduated from college! That’s good, right? Sure, I spent my life savings in Europe this summer but that’s just a minor, insignificant detail. The rest of the year, I’ve been a golden ray of sunshine (excluding the bouts of post-grad laziness).

So can I pretty please have this Proenza Schouler Lux Leather Wallet? It comes in all sorts of beautiful colors and I’d be tickled pink to own any one of these colors (except pink). Proenza Schouler recently launched an online shop on their website and this wallet is one of the limited-edition accessories featured. Limited-edition, I said!

I would really love this wallet, Santa. And by “would really love,” I mean it’s a necessity for my well being. You understand right? I don’t even know what the inside looks like but the outside has already sold me. I’m SOLD!! It will match perfectly with the inside of my purse, next to my iPod and chapstick. So it’s a good investment.

I’ll bake you extra delicious cookies!

xo, Janelle
