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 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.

PS: Many of you asked about my cuff on social media (I’ve linked it below). It is from Evocateur and I absolutely love it. Please, check out their jewelry HERE.

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous weekend.

Much love.

    Happy Friday sexy mamma! Oh that fringe skirt looks amazing on you! Such a fabulous look on you Vanessa! And congrats again on being featured on The Every Girl, well deserved in my book ????

    You look stunning, Vanessa! I adore the top and skirt, and those shoes, swoon! It certainly is fitting to feature that amazing necklace in this post sharing your experience with NYFW!

    There is certainly a determination that you see on everyone’s face to make it, either from the natives or from those who have gave up everything that they’ve called home and comfort to start a new beginning and seek new opportunities here. There’s an aggression to make it and beat the odds, definitely a special and inspiring vibe. I would love to visit Chicago one day, as I’ve never been there before. I’ve heard some great things, which makes me eager ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope your son enjoyed his birthday and you are so right, family is ALWAYS first before anything, even fashion!

    Have a beautiful day and weekend, my beautiful friend!

    You look stunning Vanessa.The devil is in the details for sure. Am loving all the tiny details….the neckline, fringe hemline, chunky heels and the accessories too. Glad to hear that you had a fun time at the Fashion Week. Happy Belated Birthday to your Son too.

  22. September 18, 2015 / 4:24 PM

    That necklace really is lovely and I totally get cutting your trip short to spend time with your son. I would do the same.


  23. September 18, 2015 / 4:31 PM

    I love NYC, too. I try to visit that city as often as I can. Love your skirt and the necklace! You are great at styling pieces and adding hats to your looks! Have a nice weekend, Vanessa!

    Hello Vanessa! I am beyond excited for you about your feature on the and all your experiences in the amazing NYC! You rock girl and I have no doubts that amazing things will continue coming your way. I had a super busy week and I wasn’t much connected to social media so I missed the day you posted about your feature but as soon as I read your post I went searching for it and I am sooooo happy for you! And you are so blessed for having such a beautiful family. I really enjoyed watching your son blowing the candles of his birthday cake. It melted my heart:-) You look beyond beautiful on this post and I love everything you are wearing (and when not! Seriously!) This weekend I am at a conference here in Orlando with a few of my favorite book authors and I am beyond excited and grateful for the experience (will tell you more about it later:-)) Have an amazing weekend my friend! Blessings and lots of love to you and your beautiful family. Jeannette

    Love your style, especially those sunnies! What an awesome opportunity it was to go to NYFW! I would have loved to see just the fashionistas on the streets ๐Ÿ™‚
