I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I returned from NYFW! I’ve already shared my NYFW F/W 2019 Day One Recap with you all so today is dedicated to my NYFW F/W 2019 Day Two Recap!
Day One was CRAZY busy and while Day Two was still pretty full, it wasn’t nearly as exhausting. I started off the day meeting one of my favorite brand contacts over breakfast. My meeting went from fab to fearful in a matter of seconds (literally).
Here is my real-life horror story:
You may laugh but I still have the iPhone 6s. I’ve had an upgrade available for a year and a half and I just never wanted to bother with setting up a new phone. So I don’t know if it was the fact that I have a dinosaur phone or the fact that it was freezing, but my charge went from 75% to 4% in seconds while I was on my way to my meeting. I didn’t think I would need my portable charger since this had never happened before and I immediately started worrying about how I would get back to apartment…with no phone to call an Uber and no way to get inside as I didn’t have a key. Luckily, the barista was kind enough to charge my phone.
After my meeting, I called an Uber and walked a block to meet them. At this time, my phone was charged at 60%…and it died AGAIN. I remembered the license plate number and waited fifteen minutes in the freezing cold. They never showed up, but of course they charged me anyway. While I was trying to figure out what to do, I spun around and a phone store was located right behind me. Can you believe it? I went in to charge my phone enough to let my roommate know I was on my way so I could get inside. Upon further inspection, he said my battery was bad and that I would likely need a new phone before I leave. *ughhhh!* With just enough charge to send a text, I hailed my first taxi and headed back to the apartment.
It was a very scary couple of hours but I learned some valuable lessons here: Upgrade your phone haha and NEVER leave without a portable charger.
Yuna Yang is always a favorite and I’ve gone to her show for the past three seasons! I just love her feminine, whimsical and playful designs and this season definitely didn’t disappoint. Aside from her collections, what I really love are the interesting venues she chooses to showcase them in. The first season was a garden/museum, last season was a church and this season was a bookstore! So unique and memorable!
Son Jung Wan
Son Jung Wan’s collection was an explosion of sparkle, faux fur, and embellishments galore! The colors were fun and playful and I thought the silhouettes were inventive and unique. I also really loved the attention to detail with the shoes – each was embellished with some form of bows, jewels, feathers, etc. This collection had SO many looks, which I really loved because most shows are quite short in comparison.
Brandon Maxwell Backstage with Aveda
Being backstage at a show is absolutely liberating and exciting! As someone with experience in the fashion design field, it is just so incredible to see how a show comes together behind the scenes. I loved getting to see the models getting glammed up and I was lucky enough to chat with the head Aveda stylist about the looks they were creating for the show.
Elle Magazine Event
After my backstage excursion, I met up with a couple of friends at the Elle event. I caught the last bit of it so I wasn’t there for long but there were so many amazing vendors. I, especially, loved the gorgeous venue (look at these floors!)! Afterwards, we explored a bit of the city and ate an amazing dinner 🙂
