On Saturday I was at a bull riders invitational at Oracle Arena wearing cowboy boots, today I’m at fashion week in New York wearing my spanking new Freda Salvador shoes, which I’m dying for. Life as a style writer is never dull, this much is certain. The best part about the shoes is they have about a one-inch heel, so I expect foot pain will be at a minimum—and this for sure is the first season I’ve been able to say that. (I’m enjoying a bit of a foray into menswear-inspired outfits. The comfort level is making the experiment a potentially permanent situation in my life.)
Stay tuned to Monogram’s Fashion Week Spring 2014 magazine for updates from the shows, street style snaps, and party reports from the heart of the happenings. Have your own missives from NYFW? You can contribute to the magazine too!
One of my favorite designers, Mara Hoffman, presented her collection on Saturday, and these are some of my favorites. It’s always difficult to pick because I love pretty much everything she does. Could you JUST give her a big kiss for this gorgeousness? I love that Hoffman sticks to her aesthetic but manages to keep it fresh every season. In particular I love the way she used black accents in this collection. Also, I wore one of those Guatemalan belts every day during college.
