The company you keep says a lot about you so, why shouldn’t it be impossible to be friends with fellow influencers? While it’s true that the business of blogging can be quite catty and competitive—I truly believe that it’s time that women support one another. It’s not about your influence, trust me. I couldn’t care less if you have 1o or 10,000 followers, to me what really matters is the heart of a person.
I left Chicago at 2:00 am to attend Desigual’s SS18 Fashion Show at Skylight Clarkson Square in New York City at noon on Thursday, 9/7. The trip in itself was quite exhausting but the show made me forget all about it. Desigual staged a celebration of multiculturalism, in it’s typical signature playful way.
New York Fashion Week is here, and I am already daydreaming about what outfits to wear! I just love finding that perfect outfit that shows off my personal style. During Fashion Week, I always want to look stylish and be comfortable, but sometimes that is so hard when the days are so long! You need to look your best, but you also want to feel your best! With Dr. Scholl’s® Stylish Step ™ High Heel Relief Insoles from Target, I am able to rock my heels all day long and I couldn’t be more excited about it!
My Voyager Charm necklace from BaubleBar (which is to die for + you can create your very own charm necklace HERE too!) for today’s post could not have been more fitting by telling you my story and journey to New York for Fashion Week. By definition, voyager means a traveler to a distant land. New York may not be distant (it’s only 1.5 hour flight from Chicago) and I may not have traveled by ship but it still is a distant land for me, and I definitely consider myself an explorer.
Every time I come to New York I feel like I’m on a big playground ready to soak it all in, and explore. The City truly never sleeps, and it is full of passionate people who are ready to make their dreams become a reality. The energy and confidence of NYC is simply mesmerizing.
I didn’t stay in New York City the whole week since my son had his 4th Birthday on September 16th, and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. I might be crazy about fashion but my son and husband always come first.
On a different note, thank you all for your sweet messages on my blog, and social media regarding my feature on TheEveryGirl.com. I’m beyond humbled by your love and support + I’m glad I was able to share a peek of NYFW with you on Snapchat (@WhatWouldVWear) which – BTW – I’m still new to, so bear with me, please. I intend to use it more often but I must admit that I feel very strange talking to my cell phone.
As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous weekend.

New York Fashion Week truly is heaven for anybody who has a sincere passion for fashion. Here I am being surrounded by the most fashionable people from all over the globe and I couldn’t be more excited. I wore this look to the Tibi Show which I was also able to visit backstage. I met with the whole AVEDA team who were doing the hair and make-up on the models. The theme was simple and to the point: Less is more – with an au naturale look for Tibi’s earthy spring palette.
Get more NYFW scoops on Friday’s blog post and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@WhatWouldVWear) for fashion updates.
PS: A big thank you to my partner in crime, Michelle. We not only had the best time together but we were also able to photograph each other during NYFW.
