So I have to admit, I’m pretty sad that I’m not in Manhattan for NYFW right now. I still remember my first show at Lincoln Center when I had the opportunity to see Betsey Johnson’s show. I still have my ticket saved in a special box. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity you could say! I’m hoping this is the last time I won’t be there during this time of the year, as I’m planning on moving to NYC in May or June when I graduate!

In the meantime, I’m living vicariously through fashion editors and magazines social media right now. It’s because of NYFW that I thought it would be appropriate to post this outfit I styled. Because I would totally rock this at Lincoln Center if I was there this week. I wish this jacket were still available for purchase! I scored it at the Premium Outlet Mall in Livermore, CA at the Joe’s Jeans Outlet store. It was originally $400 and I got it for $50! How can you say no to that?!

I truly believe that you can never go wrong wearing black skinny jeans. You might think it’s all I own because I wear them all of the time, but I own tons of normal denim too. Black is slimming and just so New York. Add some heels and your legs look even better! Top it off with a blowout, some French tips, a nude lip and you are good to go for your first fashion show (or a special night out!).
