Long time no blog!!! Before school started I was so optimistic about being able to balance my school life, social life and blogging…but alas that was just wishful thinking and blogging just sadly went to the back burner.
I know NYFW was a few weeks ago but I never got to do my roundup and share my experience with you guys!! Even though I only got to see one show, I still want to show you guys because it was AMAZING!
I have a funny story about my Day 1 outfit. I was supposed to see the Vaishali S show at 3pm that day and prior to the show, I had plans to do some sightseeing with my dad (who was in New York on a business trip). Obviously, sightseeing included a lot of walking and potentially a lot of crowds so I had put on a rather simple outfit with very comfortable shoes to walk around that morning. I packed my other outfit and shoes in my bag so that I could head straight to the venue and change into my planned outfit (OR SO I THOUGHT). When I went to change, I realized in a slight panic that I had only brought my shoes with me and I had left my outfit at the hotel. I had to make the outfit work on the spot because it was 15 minutes until the show and I didn’t have time go to back to the hotel. So, that is why I ended up with this outfit…which now looking back at it, I really love. It’s not super extravagant but it still looks chic.
The best part about this outfit is that it is super budget friendly! These pants are from Zara and they’re my new favourite bottoms because they’re soooo comfortable and you can really dress them either up or down. They come is a few different colours and honestly, I wanted to buy them all but I decided to go for black because it’s just so versatile. I love that they’re high waisted because I think high waisted pants look super flattering with my body shape. I paired it with a Forever21 cropped cami that was literally $9 dollars but it was such a pop of colour and really contrasted with the edge that the black bottoms brought. Also, I forgot to mention that the sunglasses I’m wearing were $5 from a street vendor in SOHO! SUCH A STEAL!
Long story short, even though the outfit wasn’t my first choice, I still made it work and this entire look was under $100 which is such a steal!
Okay, enough blabbing about my outfit…lets talk about the show!
So…I’ve never been to a fashion show before and I felt like a girl in a candy store because the whole environment was just so amazingly overwhelming. Everyone there was dressed up, there were what seemed like millions of cameras at the end of the runway and the moment the lights turned on and the music started, I honestly felt like I was living young Sindy’s dream.
The Vaishali S line was absolutely stunning and I was amazed by the details she put into her pieces. The material she used for her pieces were very flowy and lightweight. All her looks were soft and elegant and every model that walked down the runway seemed to glide down it. I took so many pictures while I was there but shortly after realized that my pictures can’t compete with the professional photographers at the end of the runway so I’ve shared a few of my favourite looks with you guys courtesy of Fashionweekonline.com.

I’ll be posting Day 2 tomorrow so stay tuned!
