So I went to A LOT of shows during NYFW and watching the runway was probably the most memorable part of my trip. The lights, models, people, make up, outfits were so on point I wanted to share each show that I attended real quick and either trends / pieces that stood out to me. Keep in mind I was at the Spring 2017 shows so these are all items we won’t be seeing until 2017 but it’s always good to stay a head of the curve ๐Ÿ™‚ You can also certainly incorporate some of these pieces now since its still hot outside! Like in the outfit above this flirtyย pink is my absolute favorite and I decided to girly up the ripped camo denim that I can’t get over. Luckily all sizes are still left and under $50. Onย trend and on point!

*Noon By Noor: Lots of neutrals & sheer fabric. This was my first show so I was very goo goo gah gah during the entire show. The neutral colors and sheer fabrics were so flirty I couldn’t keep my eyes off of them and definitely gained lots of inspiration from this show.

*Marissa Webb: What really caught my eye was the silky materials which I was inspired by and blogged about here. This was my favorite show of them all and I am not sure if it was because I was wearing this Marissa Webb shirt and felt super cool or the amount of iconic ladies were in the room that I looked up too OR the fact that I landed FRONT row at Marissa Webb. I was let alone surprised I got in. Anyway along with the silky fabric lots of leather came into play along with dark greens and white (which was my outfit to the event – hereย – I felt right at home)!

Fashion Palette: So this was a mix of brands which I thought was pretty cool. It was also a mix of categories from ball gowns to night gowns. Tons of different stylesย which was super fun!

Misha Collection: This particular show I had some pieces that I was obsessed with and others I wasn’t crazy about. This collection consisted of leopard, gold fringe, monochromatic, and very sexy going out kinda looks. Leather and lace were also on the menu!

*Tadashi Shoji: Sad this was one of my favorites but the photos are not out! I’ll be sure to share in the next post the photos. I remember very fun and elegant pieces. This show was also so special to me since I actually have been a fan of Tashi before I was invited and it was in the big runway showroom which felt like a dream. I ALSO ran into my old bride and groom waiting in line which was super crazy! My old bride and groom was Crystal Stewartย ( Mrs. Usa 2008) along with her Belgium prince. You can find their wedding here. They actually where my last wedding so hold a dear place in my heart!

Dan Liu: I scored front row at this one and I did like some dresses but nothing wowed me. I did have friends that loved this show so you can see how every one is different.ย I also believe that is the beauty of fashion – we all have different taste buds and there is so much fashion to go around. Lots and lots of dresses were showcased and was a Parisian themed show.ย We all were introduced with red roses at our seat and Dan Liu himself sat at a Parisian like table for his finale. It was cute!

Click on the names of the shows to take you to the gallery. As you can see I went to A LOT of shows – I have 6 more which I will be sharing at a later post. I was in New York for fashion week for a full week and I had a jam pack schedule everyday so it was a lot to take in. I am not going to lie all of the shows kinda are mumble jumbled in my head but the ones that stood out to me have an * – luckily I have photos to go back on for memory because I am going to need them once Spring comes around.

You can visit Things I learned during NYFW here. I am getting tons of emails about how to get into shows so I maybe working on a post ONLY if you all are interested – so let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

Blanket Vest: Evy’s Tree | Top: Bebe | Jeans: Skinniesย | Shoes: Similar / Similar

Happy official first day of Fall – bring on the pumpkin spice lattes, over the knee booties, and tons of blanket scarves. While traveling blanket scarves are my saving grace and probably the best thing around. I love how socially acceptable it is to carry around a blanket but if a blanket scarf is not your jam, I found the next best thing, a blanket vest.

This blanket vest from Evy’s Tree has to be the new blanket scarf replacement since it’s so practicalย and warm. I usually end up not knowing how to fold my blanket scarf and use it as a vest anyway soย this reversible vest just does that. It also has pockets and starting tonight at 10:00 PM the vestย will be apart of their fall sale (25% off)! I paired it with some simple jeans, a suede top (to go with the fall theme) and some mules that are perfect for this transitional time. For those out there that are able to start wearing your booties and blankies – super jealous! I’ll be over here in 100 degree weather.

Happy Thursday!

Suede Dress: Z Supply | Boots: Ted Baker | Wallet: Tory Burch //// Gray Dress: Z Supply | Shoes: Keds |

I have been living in these two dresses by Magnolia Mey because they are the most comfortable dresses around. I am all about comfort and throwing on a good pair of shoes for a day of running around with no where to actually be is my jam. Magnolia Mey introduced me to the Z Supply who is the brand of these comfy dresses. I started to look more into Z Supply and noticed they were all about basic and comfortย which I believe in 100%. Magnolia Mey has all their inventory on their IG handle hereย – you can call or comment on their photo to order items.

They also will have a booth to shop their goodies at the Women and Wine Event on September 29th in the Woodlands. I am so excited to be apart of this charity event supporting Breast Cancer. I don’t think I have ever mentioned this but my mother dear is a Breast Cancer survivor as of last year. It was a wild ride for all of us and I am just so thankful for her health today. This was another reason I jumped on the opportunity to be at this event and give away two tickets! More information about the event is below ๐Ÿ™‚

Wine, Women & Shoes is a night out on the town with your girlfriends that raises money for a great cause. Proceeds go to The Breast Cancer Charities of America, a national non-profit located in The Woodlands, TX that focuses more on the human side of breast cancer by helping patients pay bills, feel beautiful again, and learning more about breast cancer.ย There will be a fashion show, wine, silent and live auctions, a drawing to win a closet worth $5,000 and more!

Crushing on Silk

  2. Navy Top
  3. Light Pink Top
  4. Wrap Blouse
  5. Navy Dress
  6. Grey Dress
  7. Light Blue Top
  8. Yellow/Orange Top

I think what’s great about blogging / fashion is there are no rules. You can do whatever the heck you want because you can. Silk flowy tops is one thing that caught my attention on the runway during NYFW that I went all heart eyes for. Now I know silk is more of a warmer dayย trend and rightfully so, since it was on the Spring 2017 runway, BUT who says you can’t jump ahead of the curve and start wearing it now. Especially since it still is about a million degrees outside and for us Houstonians it doesn’t seem like it’ll be getting cold anytime soon. I also saw at Marissa Webs show – silk mixed with some leather pants that I LOVED. This could be the perfect transition look for this time of year. Wearing this silk top with a leather jacket is my new inspiration for an outfit. I am so excited to continue to share #buttercupcrush series with trends I took away from the runways such as silk! I did mention I was going to share velvet booties last week but within the week I saw a couple of velvet bootie guides and its just not my jam to copy someone else – SOย I will just wait a couple more weeks for that guide since it is one of my favorites! Also below you will find Marissa Webb inspiration for this trend.

Happy Tuesday! TODAY IS THE DAY I GO HOME! It has been so crazy going from New York for a week to Vegas for a week. I miss my bed and my puppy dog so much! Thankfully Vegas was full of r&r which was much needed. We for sure have conquered this place after visiting 8723923 times so there isn’t much left for us to go sight see. It was nice getting breakfast with Ted yesterday then snuggled back into bed for the rest of the day to work. At night we went to dinner and watched Penn & Teller to wrap up the last night of the trip. Oh happy day to be home ๐Ÿ™‚
