New York Fashion Week Recap : Day 1 & 2 - FW17

This was my fourth experience at NYFW and I can definitely say that it is one of the best parts about being a fashion blogger. I repeat this every year, but New York is so exciting and vibrant, I fall more and more in love with every trip. I usually go for 2 days (except last season when I was there for 5 hours and still breastfeeding), but this time I had such a busy schedule that I stayed 4. Let me tell you about them

New York Fashion Week Recap : Day 1 & 2 - FW17

One jacket, 3 ways

Packing for a quick jaunt in New York for Fashion Week can more often than not turn into mission impossible. You want fly in with a small enough suitcase for your outfits, but also have room for your shopping ;-) Keeping warm is a must during Fashion Week because it is still February when the events debut. So it is crucial to create outfits around a good and warm jacket. That being said, I traveled with an Isabel Marant beauty from TNT and styled it 3 ways.

Mandy's salad bar in Old Montreal

Ladies and Gentleman, the Wolfe sisters have done it again! Mandy and Rebecca have opened yet another Mandy's Salad Bar, but in Old Montreal this time. It is a given to say that I am a fan of their delicious salads, so much so that this is my second post about them. Ask anyone close to me how many times I eat Mandy's in a week, and they will answer 3 times or more without hesitation.

Paul Andrew FW17 New York Fashion Week

I am a shoe lover, a lover of all things shoes and if you are too, then you've definitely heard of Paul Andrew. He is a designer that creates stunning footwear that is originative and extravagant. With invitation in hand, I gladly attended his Fall/Winter Women's and Men's presentation during NYFW and he did not disappoint.

J.CREW fall/winter 2017 New York Fashion Week

J.CREW presented its fall/winter 2017 men’s and women’s collections at Spring Studios on February 12th and I was beside myself when I received and invitation. Needless to say I was beyond excited to attend their presentation because I love J.Crew and I shop there regularly for myself and my kids. You have to shop their collection online in Montreal, but it is definitely one of the first places I go to when I am in Miami or New York.

Valmont Cosmetic

It's no secret that I love buying skin care products, and much to my husband's dismay, I tend to be a little bit of a hoarder when it comes to managing how many items I have. My medicine cabinet is overflowing with creams, lotions and potions so when I heard about Valmont, I was naturally curious because I had never heard of them before and I thought I knew all the high end beauty products on the market. I stand corrected!
