NYFW Favorites.

The day started with hair & makeup at Ric Pipino's Salon 57.

After a quick stop back by the hotel, we headed over to Lincoln Center.

10:00am: Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera, this collection is the epitome of elegance with fun, flirty hints of color. I would wear every single piece; each one so lovely.

11:00am: Carlos Miele

Carlos Miele, I can't say much more except he is a hopelessly endearing man. Listening to Carlos speak about the inspiration behind his collection sort of leaves you hanging on every word {especially with that accent}

3:00pm: Reem Acra

 Reem Acra, showed one impeccable dress after another; too many favorites it's ridiculous to even attempt to edit.

A quick run with Phillip Bloch backstage at Reem Acra. Ah-dorable!

Took a quick peek backstage the Betsey Johnson show before it started. A whole kind of crazy, chaotic I was not prepared to deal with, but always a good time.

6:00pm: Betsey Johnson

Loved the '60s vibe and how the models walked the show; very personalized.

And then got chummy with the Mickey H from Paper Magazine. Follow him immediately, right now on twitter @AskMrMickey. He's glorious!

7:00pm: Prete & Bruno
And then Prete and Bruno - the newbies to NYFW. They brought a pretty great show full of black pieces incorporated peeks of green and gold mixed in.

Obviously, I got that memo.

This past trip to NY with my mother was my busiest {and most fun} yet and it has left me a little exhausted. Besides shopping, enjoying The Plaza, wandering around The Metropolitan Museum of Art, spending time with family and hitting some of our favorite restaurants, the time spent at Lincoln Center is always my most favorite. I still love it. Every minute of it. I appreciate that I'm even invited to the shows, let alone allowed backstage. I'll never know when it will all be taken away from me, so for the moment I just enjoy each moment to the fullest. Quite an eventful week; I hope you enjoyed the highlights.
