Excited to share more of my Who, What and Wear of New York Fashion Week with you today! Collaboration meetings, gorgeous runway shows and restaurants you need to know! I had so much great feedback on Friday’s post about NYFW Days 1 and 2, I thought I’d move up this last post about the last two days at New York Fashion Week. I was up bright and early for a quick photo shoot with my blogger BFF Tanya Foster. This day was a bit cooler so I was glad to have these classic pieces with me.

Tanya was great to introduce me to the team at Eliza J and Talbots. We had a great time visiting with Eliza J designers Tyrone Curtis and Dana Greechan and viewing their SS17 line. The show room was gorgeous and there were so many beautiful designs. There are several white dresses you know I can’t wait to add to my collection. I’ll definitely be sharing more about Eliza J’s Spring/Summer designs as well as featuring a gorgeous dress for fall soon.
Next, it was off for coffee and strategizing with Talbots and their plans for Fall, Winter and Holiday. Lots of exciting things ahead for you here.
Because I am such a huge fan of One King’s Lane, I had to schedule a tour of their recently opened OKL Studio. Meeting their team, learning about how the Studio works with clients and seeing their one-of-a-kind pieces was a special opportunity for us.
Tanya and I ran across the cutest restaurant while walking from One King’s Lane to our next event. Hudson Clearwater in West Village. After a relaxing lunch, Tanya and I headed to the Leeann Marshall runway show. Leeann won Project Runway Season 5. This so was full of ethereal beauty that is her signature.

That evening, rewardStyle (the platform that provides me the ability to create links for you to shop with me) hosted a party with Milk Makeup. It was a fun time to visit with other bloggers I’ve met through Instagram, at the rS Conference or through friends.
We ended the evening with an amazing meal with Dallas blogger friends at Gotham Bar and Grill in Greenwich Village. Cathy, from The Middle Page, knew about this quintessential NY restaurant and made our reservation. I will definitely go back the next time I am in NYC. To say the meal was amazing, is an understatement!
Shirt Dress (on sale) // Shoes // Sunglasses // GiGi New York New Bag Coming Soon
The last morning was just as packed as the previous three days. Because one of my passions is interior design, I had to meet the darling Roxy Te of Society Social in her Soho. It was so fun to meet her and hear about how her company got started and how she has grown. She is most well-know for her beautiful faux-bamboo bar carts, but you will soon know her for the well-priced custom furniture she creates though her family business.
Next, I was off to the GiGi New York Pop up in the Meatpacking District. I’ve featured this American-made, well-priced, high-quality line before. They make the Travel Tote that I love so much and told you about here. Meeting with them to see the new line for Fall/Winter was such great fun. They are so nice and have so much greatness headed our way. You know I love a good clutch and suede design is beautiful and unique. The suede bucket bag above is coming soon!
I ended my time at New York Fashion Week by covering the Sally LaPointe show for . The venue was a storefront shell with exposed brick walls featuring 3 metal and light sculptures suspended in the space. Sally is a NYC-based designer whose signatures include luxurious knits, decadent outerwear and an edgy yet luxe and unexpected take on evening wear. She was named FGI’s Rising Star for 2015. The show was breathtaking.
Thanks again for all of your support of The Lush List. It is because of you that I was able to attend so many great events at my first New York Fashion Week and mark the second anniversary of the blog while I was there. I look forward to sharing many more experiences with you!
