My beloved aussie sister Rachel(the woman behind the coolest aussie label StyleStalker) took this picture when I was climbing off her staircase at her New York apartment during fashion week. Not sure when I decided to monkey around with those heels on, but it clearly wasn't the very best idea hahaha. Anyway I'm currently sorting my suitcase as in a few hours I'm off to Paris. I'll be attending tomorrow Loewe's show, then quick trip to Madrid for some events, back to Paris for the incredible show of Elie Saab and back to Madrid... yes... another non stop week :)

On Wednesday I flew to New York to attend the launch party for the Vogue Eyewear/CFDA City Collection that was held at the Sunglass Hut Flagship. I was in great company as you can see from the pictures. Jane and Natalie were the other two bloggers that were selected for this collection (Jane's hair is to die for.. not to mention her porcelain skin) and imagine my joy when Alexa Chung walks into the room. She looks exactly the same and was super sweet to everyone. I was so sick this day so everything was quite a blur and seems like a dream. Nonetheless, I did have a great time
For those who were wondering, you can get the sunglasses at Sunglass Hut.
Credit should be given where credit is due. Can you believe Aline walked Balmain at 3 pm, then walked Barbara Bui at 4?! Add in traffic between shows hair, makeup, & putting on a new outfit a designer took months to create and you get "the eye of the storm". It took all of 5 minutes to get her ready. She was calm as a cucumber after Barbara Bui and I thought this still shot best reflected that moment of poise. Well done Aline.

I picked up this Theyskens Theory top at Edit during my stay in New York for Fashion Week. It was the longest time I've ever spent in a clothing store as most of my shopping is done online but from rack to rack, room to room, there were so many great items that it was just hard to leave the store. You must check out the store if you're ever in New York!
I wore this outfit to my best friend's sister's wedding and I've been meaning to do a 'What to Wear to a Wedding' post as I get a lot of requests. The most important thing for me when dressing for a wedding is, (ok, this might sound selfish) comfort as I look forward to the reception. Thankfully this Zara skirt is one size too big so it's quite perfect for times when I'm determined to overeat.
And here's the only other outfit I photographed in New York. It's kind of hard to be creative when you're working out of a tiny suitcase in unexpected weather. Same shorts, same bag... at least the shoes are different? Anyway, wore this to explore Central Park and hit up Shake Shack to see what all the hype was about.
So does Shake Shack compare to In-N-Out? I can only say that it wouldn't be fair to compare the two since they're two different things: Shake Shack was less of a fast food chain to me and more of a gourmet eatery. Plus In-N-Out is just something I grew up with that tastes familiar now matter where I go, you know? But that's just me I guess. Nevertheless it was delicious, so delicious in fact that I ended up going back and spending a total of $20 there that day. (Granted I never wanted to eat again after devouring a double cheeseburger, cheese fries, soda, and milkshake....)

NewYork fashion week has been an amazing week as it normally is. Hanging around with my gals Michelle andRachel. Endless nights with Pedro Garcia's PR and "the" man in town Felix, Gabi Palatchi , Pablo and Pelayo. Meet up with fellow bloggers at the Tribeca Grand and saw old faces too at the Lincoln Centre. Highlights of the week: Shooting with Backyard Bill for GQ USA . Sunbathing at Soho House and going "gaga" with the new African inspired collections like the one Michael Kors presented this season. Rocking "school girl" Theory's skirts and shirts around New York who threw, for me,one of the best shows in town. Bumping into Rachel Zoe at Oscar de la Renta. Running into Cyril Foinet (Trendland) quite a few times during the party circuit. Raving with Alexander Wang at Pier 40. Catching up with the coolest people in LA and also my very adored friends, Morgan and Douglas!!! Eating thousand of burgers and fries: american style! in the middle of the night. Trotting around Brooklyn. Wearing an incredible Emilio Pucci sequence bodysuit while dancing at BoomBoom Room inside the glass toilets... New York I can't wait to be back with you!!!!
