New York Shopping: Make-Up and Skin Care

My New York make-up and skin care shopping!
So far I'm really happy with the Caudalie skin care set, the eye and lip creme is the first creme that my skin doesn't over-react on! Jayyy! (I have a very sensitive skin) and I just love the porefessionally set I use as a primer! A little trick I learned is to dab a little eyecreme on top of your foundation around the eye-area when creases appear (works like a miracle!)

Shopping: velvet blue tapestry boots

Jeffrey Campbell Yuma Fab from LFstores (or at Solestruck online)

Of course there was plenty of shopping while being in New York! I bought a lot of Make-Up and Skin Care products and yes, clothing and shoes too! The suitcase totally restricted me in shopping as I just didn't see any possibility (packing wise) in bringing back Anthropologie's tableware (ceramics) and heavy books. 

Luckily there was some space left for shoes to squeeze in and I found these on sale (50% off) at the LFstores in Soho. Now its just waiting for the weather to allow me to wear these bare legged with dresses!

OUTFIT: D is for Dr Martens

wearing: Black dr Martens, Rebecca Minkoff Mac clutch, TopShop Lilac jamie jeans, H&M silver sweater

I just had to have some Black Dr Martens as well (so now I have a family of White, Mint and Black) I actually wanted to buy them in the New York store but they were sold out in my size completely! Luckily I found these at Asos online!

Fashion Fever

Sore throat, body aches and I feel like I'm burning up...

Apparently I'm not the only one who caught the flu after New York Fashion week....

So for now I'm in my pyjamas, drinking tea, eating loads of fruit and catching my Zzzzzzzz's

@ 3.1 Phillip Lim's After Party

photos via Kanon Vodka at Red Egg

With Aimee and Nadia (still with her Fashiolista sticker on her face) at the 3.1 Phillip Lim after party at Red Egg.

The after party ended up being a Street-Style must see, with an abundance of black Leather biker Jackets, black Dr. Martins, Dr Martins shoes with white socks and jeans, big furs, wool plaided coats with studded backs giving a perfect plaid/silver harnessed look and beautiful silk blouses with menswear tailoring for a perfect feminine look and loads of button downs in navy colored plaids, simple whites and denims! Pics at Kanon Vodka here.

NYFW tiny details

wearing the Top Shop pink Jamie jeans and Zara shoes

Right now I have to pack, so sad I'll be flying out in just a few hours! I really had an amazing time and still have loads of photos to edit from the shows, Bloglovin' awards and the Fashiolista party! 

But for today I wanted to show you a little detail from yesterdays outfit that otherwise would have gone unnoticed...  

With the tight schedule it really became impossible to run from show to presentation to after party's in 5 inch heels so I went with wearing my flat shoes throughout the day (and the only flat shoes I brought with me to NY).. the only sway I could give them was to wear the straps over the jeans..  I guess sometimes it are the most tiny details that make a look..

I have such a great time in New York hanging out with all the girls and I managed to do some amazing shopping in between shows and events! I just feel like there is just not enough time for every thing I want to do!

NYFW Day 2 blogger street style details

Some outfit details from New York Fashion Week day 2, taken after the Rebecca Minkoff show.

Aimee from Song of Style, Christina from Trop Rouge, the very lovely Andy from Stylescrapbook with her Kipling camera bag and Alexander Wang boots and finally me (wearing my new Rebecca Minkoff watch and bag)

Day 2 was so good I loved hanging out with the girls, I felt I hadn't seen them in ages so it really felt like a fashion week reunion and it was so good finally meeting Andy!

NYFW Day 1

photos by Hannan Saleh (street style photographer for Essence Magazine) last photo via eat.sleep.wear

1st day of New York Fashion Week,

I went to see the BCBG and Tadashi Shoji shows and visited the Rebecca Minkoff Showroom at Socialyte Caravan Studio together with Claire from De Lune and Olivia from I've got a Lust for Life where I was massively spoiled with 2 beautiful bags, a delicious watch, snacks and drinks!

I spent most of the day hanging out with Nadia, Claire, Olivia and Kim and had a surprise run in with a very good friend and old co-worker Celia who works as a fashion Editor for Essence! Me and Celia used to be attached at the hip at work so it was more then great seeing her at Lincoln Center and both wearing prints on prints with Navy Blue accents.

What would fashion week be without cat eyes?

I think I will need a girls night try-out session, although glasses of Sangria probably wouldn't help mastering the art of eye liner :)

It's so good to be back in New York, it actually feels like I never left!
Today I will spent some quality shopping time, I'm planning to go to Beacons Closet, INA (in Soho) and the Sephora for a Bobbi Brown concealer (they are supposedly really good!) Oh and I need to go B&H in midtown for extra cards for my Canon! I'm sure I'm forgetting things right now haha

Quick update from New York

Hi Guys!
Just a quick update from New York! 
I arrived yesterday save and sound and was greeted by Gemma from fadetoblack and Nadia from froufrouu with whom I'm staying in the City! 

Together we went straight to my first appointment at Fast Ashley Studios in Brooklyn for a fitting (and choose the outfits) for an upcoming photo shoot. (I'm so happy the girls went with me because I was soooo jetlagged) Afterwards we had a nice dinner and loads of chats, (of course I spent the remaining evening trying on all of Gemma's clothes, things friends do :)

Today we will go shopping and yes, take outfit pictures!
