Let me start off by saying……. Wooohooo I did it!! I Have always wanted to attend Fashion Week and never had the courage to do it and make it happen! And I finally did it! I want to share everything with you all so if you all have questions that I don’t answer in this blog post leave them as a comment and I will be sure to answer them, if not make a whole other post addressing them!!
This post is dedicated to everything I packed for NYFW S/S2018
Let me start with what I packed in my Purse!
They call the Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Never-FULL for a reason right?! I swear this bag was like a suitcase for me the whole trip! I packed all of my items I needed plus a whole outfit with shoes!
1-Juicy Travel Perfume
2- Card Wallet
3- Hand Sanitizer
4- Charging pack– I ordered mine from Amazon!
5- Lip Products I wear almost every day! Nars Lip Gloss– Chelsea Girls, Anastasia matte lip- Dusty Rose, Make up forever Lip Liner- (can’t find this color online)
6- Foldable flats
8- Travel Lotion– Mine was one I got from Bath and Body Works
11- Trail Mix- Sent to me from Power Up!
First off, I didn’t know where to even start when it came time to pack for NYFW, I started to plan on paper a month out, the things that I wanted to bring with me on my trip and the things that I wanted to bring in my handbag with me through out the day. Once it came down to it, I felt like I had given my self ample amounts of time to really think through what I wanted to bring and if I didn’t have it go out and purchase it.
They say wear things that you wouldn’t ever wear back home on a normal day! Well… I have some bad news, I would wear all of these outfits on a normal day or for a local event here! I have to say none of what I wore or packed was over the top and only NYFW attire! I can’t wait to wear these pieces again real soon!
Lets start with my general packing list:
I wore these shoes for hours through both airports, all through Times Square! in the rain and they were so comfy!!
Oversize Fan Earrings by BP (sold out online but in stores @Nordstrom)
Mine are Steve Madden the Clearer (and they were not comfy at all)
Belt here here
Mine was custom made by a designer from Bergdorfs (it was super pricey but love how it turned out)
this dress was amazing to wear! I wish I had better pictures in it! The events I attended in this outfit were dark lighting. I had to have Mc Dreamy mom alter this dress, I purchased it way too big knowing she was going to need to take it in, I didn’t want to get a size too small and it not fit at all) So his mom made minor adjustments to make it fit better in the bust by adding some darts- I now know I need to get a smaller size or two from what I ordered.
This outfit was supposed to be worn for the Banana Republic Presentation but I would have missed my flight if I stood in line.
I packed 3 pairs of PJs don’t ask?!-I only wore one set
a hand full of undergarments
pedals for tata coverage
a pair of socks- if I wore my platform sneakers
a robe- for doing makeup and out of the shower
a few other dresses/ shoes not ever worn (I over pack)
A cable/ accessory organizer for my cords (this was amazing, I found mine at TJ Maxx)
My Luggage I found at TJ Maxx
(my toiletry bag weighed over 5 pounds so I had to put my toiletries in Alyssa’s bag- Toiletries made my bag weigh over 55 pounds😊)- Southwest makes you pay for every 2 pounds you are over 50 pounds an extra $75 dollars!! Note to self bring two suitcases next time!
Travel sized: Shampoo, conditioner, loofa, shaving cream, razor,
all of my Face products from Willing Beauty
My whole makeup bag: foundation-brush, concealer-blender, contour-brush,blush-brush, mascaras-1 &2, naked palette, Burberry Highlighter (I do the same makeup look everyday!)
Snacks– my favorite is the Antioxidant mix!!
My camera (which I lugged with me and never used!)
mini first aid kit
my steamer (life saver!)
