I’m lucky enough to have my birthday fall right before the craziness of New York Fashion Week, which means that my day of birthday pampering, i.e. manicure and massage, doubles as Fashion Week prep. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk Fashion Week essentials. Here are my must-have with me at all times items.
Shoulder Bag // I’ve carried the Johan bag from Jerome Dreyfuss for the past few seasons and it’s versatility is king during such a busy week when anything can happen. With a shoulder strap and adjustable handles, it offers different looks and the side zippers allow for more room to stash fashion show freebies.
Luxury Face Oil // I finally gave in and bought myself the Rodin Olio Lusso face oil and it is the perfect product to help sooth my skin after a day in and out harsh weather.
Makeup Remover Wipes // My new-found quick fix for removing salt stains from leather boots is using Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes. Think of the leather on your boots just like the skin on your face… These moisturizing wipes remove salt stains while keeping your leather looking fresh.
Lip Color // In my book, lip color is only reserved for special occasions, and aside from holiday parties and weddings, fashion week is the only other occasion when I pull out my NARS Velvet Matte Lip Color in Cruella.
Business Cards // I never know who I might run into during Fashion Week, so I always carry an extra stack of business cards, just in case.
iPhone // I always carry my Nikon camera, but I can’t resist using instagram during Fashion Week, so my iPhone gets just as much attention. Follow me for updates this week!
Planner // Believe it or not, sometimes the wonderful world of technology can fail, so I always keep my Marjolein Delhaas Planner with me to take notes and double check my schedule.
Turtleneck Collar // Today is bitter cold here in New York, so my DIY Turtleneck Collar is an easy add-on without creating bulk to my look. Bonus, it makes for a perfect hair tuck!
