Rent the Runway Sample Sale - 9/27 - 10/2/16

(28/29TH STREET)
NYC NY 10001


The Rent the Runway sample sale is back! If you plan on going, be sure to battle the crowds! I got a sneak peek at the sale last night, and saw items were priced below $20! It's been awhile since I shopped this sale, and for the first time I spotted blouses and jackets. It seemed like there were a lot of merchandise from older seasons, in lots of bright and bold colors. There were certain dresses I was hoping to see find there but didn't see them in my size. 

If you make it to the sale, be sure to check for damages and note that you can only bring up to 10 items into the fitting room with you! Since they were getting ready to close, I literally had 15 minutes to try on 8 dresses in the fitting room. I ended up just getting the Parker Black Kamal Romper ($298 retail) for $32.38! There was a Sachin & Babi dress I wanted but I noticed it was slightly damaged on the back. I may just go back the last day of the sale. There were also a selection of handbags, jewelry, and Balenciaga sunglasses.

Erin Fetherston Spring 2017 at NYFW

Spring 2017 marks Erin Fetherston's ten year anniversary of showing at New York Fashion Week. The palette consists of dusty rose, moonrise, opal, peridot and onyx. The silhouettes are long and flowy, including sequin jumpsuits, slip dresses, maxi dresses, ombré separates, and shimmer gowns. One of the pieces that really caught my eye is the dream catcher cross-body clutch, which is already available on erinfetherston.com along with her other runway accessories. 

Check out backstage beauty for the show, with skin care prep with skyn ICELAND, makeup and nails by Glamsquad and hair by Davines.

Backstage at Erin Fetherston Spring 2017 at NYFW

Backstage at Erin Fetherston Spring 2017 at New York Fashion Week, I got the scoop from skyn ICELAND founder Sarah Kugelman on the new Plumping Lip Gels used to prep the models. The Plumping Lip Gels are a 10-minute, plumping gel patch designed to hydrate, plump and reduce lines around the lips all in one high-powered treatment. It's a safe and all-natural alternative to lip injections. 

Glamsquad created the make-up and nail looks, which had a natural and organic, bohemian vibe. Davines created undone waves for the hair, with an effortless look of a second or third day blowout.

On Saturday, September 10th, KYBOE! made their New York Fashion Week debut at The Arc at Skylight at Moynihan Station. This show was fun, energetic and all about bold, colorful watches! The models were all smiles, holding their poses at the end of the runway, with the watches front and center. 

There's a few things we found out about KYBOE! at the start of the show, with a brief video introduction. There are over 350 styles with 180 different color combinations. KYBOE! has watches to fit every wrist: small (40mm), medium (48mm), and large (55mm) and illuminates with 360 degrees of LED light. The watches are water-resistant up to 100 meters / 330 feet, so you can shower, swim or scuba dive with your watch.
