Our Chictopia Editors meetup was a bit smaller than it was originally supposed to be. While there were 4 of us there, we were missing Amethyst, our Editor in Chief & Heather aka headbandit.


Samantha & Monique aka PetiteAvenue. They're both equally petite, if you ask me ;)


Samantha & Odelia aka Looney Lovegood


Sam & Syl, Monique & Odelia.
We went over to the Starbucks nearest the Lincoln Center to grab a couple of drinks & to get acquainted with each other. It was really interesting talking to these girls cause we were all in NYC for the same reasons-- we have the common ground of being fashion/style bloggers but we all come from different places in North America. We were all such chatterboxes too, so we hit it off great :)


we had a good laugh at this spelling, tbh.


petite princesses~


you're a doll monique! go check out her blog!


We were supposed to go see the NOMIA presentation at 6:30 (just before the Vivienne Tam show) but the presentation started late & we couldn't miss the next show, so we had to dash :(

Not to overshadow the brilliance of this dress but in the background of this picture are: Bebe Neuwirth, Russell Simmons and someone's pet pomeranian in front row! ahaha








A beautiful collection of understated Asian influences! Looking to Mongolia and Nepal for inspiration, the fall/winter layers and warm furs were nothing short of luxurious.

On the rainy Wednesday, on our last day of shows, we went to check out the Nanette Lepore Collection & then had a meetup with some of the other Editors from Chictopia!

Nanette walked down the runway for her bow with her daughter Violet!
The collection was beautiful & saturated with rich, sophisticated hues of purples and reds, contrasted with punches of chartreuse and fuchsias. With pretty bohemian patterns and girly cuts, this runway was full of playfulness that the audience loved.

Lars Andersson Fall/Winter 2012 at NYFW

We had a huge gap between shows on Tuesday, so we decided to fit in all of the super-hustle-bustle tourism stops that we wanted to fit in.

the observation deck at the top of 30 rock

We had gotten used to shows starting about 15 to 20 minutes late and presentations going on for longer than they were scheduled for, so when it was time to head over to the Lars Andersson Presentation at the Soho Grand, we ended up pushing it a bit late, especially since it was super FAR from our hotel.

[ LARS ANDERSSON, TUESDAY @ 6PM ]







We had really pushed it though & by the time we had told our names to the doorman, raced up a spiral staircase & sidestepped through a crowd, we only caught a glance at the collection for about two minutes & then the models walked away.


Despite missing much of the show, we were still able to take in the environment. The venue was gorgeously opulent and everything about the setting, lighting, guests and the collection was gloriously gothy. Everyone & everything was so dark and moody that it was intimidatingly cool.


& then we hurried back to the hotel to get ready to go to another show at the Lincoln Center

Norisol Ferrari Fall/Winter 2012 at MBFW

Tuesday started off with us being SUPER tired. We polished off two bottles of red at dinner the night before, not thinking about the fact that we still had to write some articles about our shows. It resulted in a VERY slow writing process (while watching late night sitcoms all night) and then sleeping in a bit in the morning.


neon fishtail dress by lipgloss and black; dany platform sandals by jessica simpson; leather motojacket from ub; leather driving gloves from le chateau; prescription wayfarers from zennioptical; purse from aldoshoes; pashmina borrowed from sam.


drapey black dress by lipgloss and black; leatherette jacket from H&M; rainbow galaxy leggings from black milk; clinic wedges from jeffrey campbell; purse from aldo.

Thankfully our first show was a presentation & it stays open for about an hour and a bit so you can just drop in. & luckily we made it too because this was one of our favourites:
