How to Get New York Fashion Week Tickets // The Complete Guide to Attending NYFW for Bloggers

One of my dreams, even before I began blogging, was to attend New York Fashion Week. I’ve always loved following fashion trends, and while I may not be a walking designer encyclopedia, I can’t get enough of watching the latest and greatest come down the runway. The only thing stopping me? How to get New York Fashion Week tickets of course!

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you may not know that I spent a few days in September in NYC for my first New York Fashion Week. It was thrilling; something I’ve always wanted to do. And ironically, it kind of started as a joke between friends on Instagram DM and ended up being a full-blown whirlwind of a trip.  Honestly, when it came to planning this trip I had no idea where to begin. As you’ll see in this post, it’s a layered effort to make attending NYFW successful if you’re a blogger. From figuring out where to stay to how to actually get New York Fashion Week tickets to shows and events, buckle up. It may be a bumpy ride.

And before I get started, I need to answer the question I get the most: Would I do it again? Probably. Is it a good thing there are six months to a year between fashion weeks? Absolutely.

I think it will give me a chance to forget how much work, blood, sweat, and tears (ok, not really, but almost) went into this. I’m also very grateful to my friend Ana Luiza who has a very helpful post about her experienceand advice for attending NYFW and helped answer some of my first-timer questions in person and via panicked text messages. And of course, I couldn’t have done it without my traveling companion, friend, photographer for the trip (who took the photos of me in this very post!), and fellow fashion blogger, Rebecca of Blogger Not Billionaire.

New Year, New Style with Stitch Fix

When it comes to fashion, experimentation is everything. This year, one of my style resolutions is not to be afraid to try new things. And if you’ve been feeling creatively stifled when it comes to your wardrobe too, then I’m happy to share how Stitch Fix can help us.

Over the years, my style has evolved from very much trendy to vintage to office casual to what it is today, a blend of all three. If I had to describe my style in the three words or less I would call it eclectic and unique. I enjoy blending vintage with modern trends, but in a practical way that can be worn from work to weekend easily.

Recently I was talking to Dave about how my style has evolved. He brought up something that I often forget: when we first met, I was in the biggest fashion rut ever. I was new to my career. I was tired and stressed from my perfectionist tendencies about my work, and let my style take a backseat. I most definitely didn’t have the energy to shop much after work, so I often stuck to my usual blouse and jeans combination. At that time, Stitch Fix didn’t exist, and there wasn’t a great way to get new fashion inspiration sent to me to try in the comfort of my own home.

His & Hers for the Holidays

Well, whether you like it or not, the holidays are in full swing. It seems like just yesterday it was Halloween and I was scrambling around to get our house in the spirit for that holiday. And just like that, I’m doing about the same for Christmas. Whoops. One day I’ll stop being such a procrastinator and have things together. Maybe. Anyone else seem to have this problem?!

To celebrate the holiday season, Dave and I spent most of our Saturday out shopping to fulfill wishes for names we pulled from a giving tree for a local charity. We started this tradition last year, where instead of shopping for each other, we shop for families in need. It’s way more fun to shop for presents for kids anyway, and often we find that if there’s something either of us wants or needs, we usually buy it for ourselves or each other. Plus, we hope it brings some relief to some parents out there, and smiles for their children.

How to Make Your LBD Fresh for the Holidays

Happy December! Anyone else totally not prepared for it to be the last month of the year?! I feel like every month of 2017 just flew right on by and while I look forward to what 2018 will bring, I wouldn’t mind if the holidays came just a teensy bit slower.
