Oh oh oh! Iâ€™m going to Fashion Week! Still working on press credentials, but I will for sure be hanging out by the tents, snapping photos of all the beautifuls for Stylesight. So if youâ€™re near Bryant Park anytime during the weeklong madness, say hello and Iâ€™ll put you on the internets if youâ€™re looking good! Speaking of looking good, all Iâ€™m thinking about now is what to wear. These are real fashion people, who will be judging the hell out me, so Iâ€™d better be looking decent if I want them to let me take their pictures. Iâ€™m obviously freaking out, and will probably just end up wearing deep-v tees shirts and skinny jeans like I always do because Iâ€™m too poor to shop right now. But if money were no object, hereâ€™s what Iâ€™d be wearing to Fashion Week.
Nothing makes me feel more confident and pulled together than a belted black dress. Plus, if I get all nervous and sweaty or spill coffee on myself, no one will notice!
A gorgeous 3/4 length sleeve coat would be just the thing for hanging around the tents during chilly nights. Honestly, Iâ€™d wear these even if it were a million degrees!
Iâ€™m currently using the cheap-o Marc by Marc tote that everybody in New York seems to have, and I canâ€™t imagine that will cut the mustard. What I really want is a giant coin-purse bag, great for carrying the myriad things Iâ€™ll need to stay alive during the week.

Elbow length gloves would go perfectly with my dresses and coats, but Iâ€™ll need my fingers free to shoot. Luckily, Tom Scott has me covered.
Iâ€™ve wanted a hat like this for months now, and Fashion Week would be the perfect excuse to buy one!
Barring that, a pretty ribbon headband will keep hair out of my face while Iâ€™m busy working AND make me look like a presentable lady.
When youâ€™re on your feet all day, comfort is where itâ€™s at for shoes. Iâ€™d stick to flats and boots, with the occasional wedge heel thrown in for good measure.
You never know, maybe Iâ€™ll score an invite to a fabulous after party. Iâ€™d better be prepared, right?
