As you read this I am Jet Blueing across the country. I will be doing a mix of restless organization, napping, and guilty television watching. Don't you love long flights sometimes? I do, especially during hectic times when you are forced to sit still and chill out. But before I embark on another fashion-filled week, stressed to the max, inspired to the fullest, my days working at Martha Stewart help me prepare. If you have yet to see the infamous outfit plan (print your own), which I do before every Fashion Week, here's the latest and Fabest.The approach this time is a mix of minimalism and California laid-back style. Colors are black, white, and purple, and jewelry is playing a bigger part than ever before. Total amount of shoes: Four pairs! Not bad, considering previous seasons. Bags: Also four — don't ask me why. But these always need to be big enough to carry my reporter essentials; brands represented on Fab's shoulder will be Foley + Corinna, vintage Bottega Veneta, Hogan, and Prada. Does anyone else spot an Italian theme here? Jackets, oh how I love them so, will be kept to a minimum given the warm forecast (yes!), and my Marc by Marc umbrella is packed! Get ready girls, let the fashion games begin.
What can I say...I'm in a sharing mood! So you've seen, and helped me finalize, my fashion week style survival kit. Then, I geeked out with all my posh gadgets for the adventure (half of which I don't know how to use, whatever, I'll figure it out!). And here is something very special, I hope you all appreciate: my outfit plans. I normally don't reveal my style secrets, but I thought you all would get a kick out of this because: what does one wear to fashion week?! We're talking the creme de la creme of the fashion world. No wallflowers allowed - Fab will be pulling out all the stops next week because I need to impress Anna, my fellow Editors and our new friends over at ELLE.com! So if you can decipher my Fab-scratch, you can maybe get an idea of what's in my lineup. The key items: hats, dope jewelry, comfy but cute shoes, stand-out dresses, vintage belts and more hats!
