Three crazy things that I did during NYFW.
1. I almost missed the first show. I had left plenty of time for getting ready but Amtrak ran super late so by the time I got to New York I barely had anytime for getting ready. I was staying at a friend’s place on day one so I rushed to her house and got ready in less then 15 minutes! I was a bit relieved to realize that she lives very close to Lincoln Center but there were just 10 minutes left, so without giving it a second thought I started walking towards the venue in my 5 inch heels! Some how I made it on time and the shows were awesome.
2. I had a Stylelist presentation and party to attend at night so I thought I’ll just walk back to her house and change. After just taking a few steps I realized that my feet were killing me. So the confident, crazy person that I am; I decided to take my shoes off and walk barefoot on Columbus road in NYC. Needles to say I got plenty of stares walking down the road in my emerald green Jean Paul dress with no shoes on! I even got a few claps from a bunch of high school girls standing at the street corner saying ‘you go girl’.
3. Decided to leave early. This one may sound crazy to a lot of people but made a lot of sense to me. I came back a day early even though I had a few shows to attend. Why? Because I was exhausted and thought I couldn’t do justice to the blog or my own body just by dragging myself from one show to another. Instead I could watch the shows from the comfort of my own home and write a decent trend report which I did. As women we should know our bodies and our strengths & weaknesses. In life and career a well balanced approach will take you a lot farther then the ‘I have to prove something’ type attitude. Understand that sometimes it’s hard but do what’s right for your mind, body and soul. Thank you for reading.
