there’s snow business like show business

Out and about during the first couple of days at New York Fashion Week – Feb 2014. Also, I shot street style yesterday at 7 shows…so lots more coming soon! Some of these photos were shot outside the main post office in midtown, NYC…there’s an inscription (often referred to as “the postman’s creed”) on that building that reads, “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”…appropriate, no? Henceforth I shall be referring to this as “the street style photographer’s creed”. hehe x

country ‘grammers – at nyfw

Boiled wool coats…several different types of plaid…Carhartt-esque work trousers…duck boots…pants informally cinched with rope and worn leather belts – they may have been carrying high-tech devices, but there was something decidedly rustic and anachronistic in the air (both on the runway and off) at the Creatures of Comfort show in New York on Thursday 2.6.14. Perhaps the stunning setting for the show influenced the showgoers to dress accordingly? The circa-1899 refectory at The High Line Hotel looks like nothing so much as the dining hall of an enormous country manor. I’m sure that the snowy weather we’ve had recently in New York influenced everyone’s wardrobe decisions as well. Still, this wasn’t the usual vintage-inspired rustic look that I’m accustomed to seeing on the streets of Brooklyn – this was something different. After the show, I even spotted one girl wearing what could only be described as a prairie dress (with boots to match) – bringing a bit of the countryside to the city while remaining demurely feminine. x

at the gilt x mr. newton pre-nyfw event

New clothes…champers…macarons…manicures…selfies…instant photos…social media – my pre-NYFW kick-off event that I hosted with Gilt on 1.30.14 was like a microcosm of Fashion Week itself! We gathered together some of our very favorite bloggers and editors – you know, people like @troprouge + @natalieoffduty + @racheletnicole + @brooklynblonde1 + @apneetgrewall + @nikkiogun from glamour.com + @laurelpinson from stylecaster + @elanafishman from luckymag.com – people like that. The girls tried on clothes and shoes from Gilt’s most recent private label collections, I snapped photos, and you can read more about it here if you want! xo

is it still street style if you shoot it indoors?

Is it still street style if you shoot it indoors? If you’re in New York at the moment…or have been keeping an eye on the weather forecast for NYFW from afar…then you’ll understand why I’m asking this question. It’s early days yet (NYFW officially starts tomorrow), but it’s looking like we may be in for a cold and messy start to fashion month. Good thing then that there are always lots of amazingly stylish parties and events to go to – indoors! Not to mention that all of the runway shows will be indoors. But who cares about the runway because STREET STYLE!! (I’m kidding! Sort of.) Anyway, the show(s) must go on…and whatever the weather, I’m sure you’ll see me out there snapping away! x

(PS – I shot these photos at one of my favorite parties last season at NYFW – the Bloglovin’/Lyst/Who What Wear/DWNLD Media party at Soho House on 9.7.13.)
