Paper Bag Lady

I threw out these shoes after these photos.
Not because I don't like them. I actually like them a lot.
But the tongue on the right shoe was detaching itself from the rest
of the shoe making walking uncomfortable. And the whole
point of wearing sneakers is to be comfortable.

So, good day, Sperry sneakers. You have served me well over the years like with distressed black jeans in March 2015 | a blue dress in September 2015 | on a matching bike in March 2016 | and paired with boat shorts in August 2016 |

Anyhoo, this is what I wore on my second day of shows at NYFW. It's actually what I wore to my first show on the second day. It was the Dan Liu show on Sunday morning at Skylight Clarkson Sq. My hotel was just a quick five minute walk from the shows that day, but I really wanted to be comfortable so I opted for sneakers.

Since I'm wearing paper bag pants, which are pretty popular right now, I thought I'd title this post paper bag lady. It's funny because, according to Urban Dictionary, a bag lady is a woman who wears weird looking outfits and usually has fuzzy hair and a hat. So, basically, the definition of me in this look minus the hat (but you guys know I love me some hats), lol. Although, I think bag lady style is probably on trend during fashion week.

As far as fashion week goes, I actually got to New York on Thursday night. I woke up around 5 a.m. because I had a video shoot in Midtown. As soon as the shoot ended, I had to hurry to my first show of the day at Noon. I had another show that day around 3 p.m. and another at 6 p.m. In between the shows, I was able to randomly chat with some blogger babes.

Saturday was spent exploring the city and then heading over to Queens for the US Open. I got to watch the women's final match, which made my day.

This is how I spent my Sunday morning before heading to another show Sunday afternoon. I had one last show Sunday night, and that's how I ended my time at New York Fashion Week. On Monday I attended a blogger gathering at Obviously Social before hopping on a plane back home.

Come back next Monday to see the other outfit I wore to fashion week!
