New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014

I had trouble sleeping last night because I was so excited for this morning. I'm flying into NYC today for Fashion Week! Last year was my first year attending and it was a ton of fun, but extremely intense. I had great NYC blogger friends (shout out to the Collective!) who gave me advice and tips, but it was still a really hectic week!

This year I feel much more prepared, but I'm sure it will be just as much of a whirlwind as it was last year. If you'll be in town for your first Fashion Week in NYC, here are my tips to you (paying it forward!):
  • Stay organized by adding all of your shows to Google Calendar or some kind of calendar that will send you reminders. Sync this with your phone so you have it handy at all times. Make sure to add physical and email addresses into the invite details.
  • Leave yourself time to get in between shows. Basically, don't overbook yourself! Map out the shows on a map if they're not all in Lincoln Center to make sure you have enough time to get from one to the other.
  • There is a lot of pressure to wear horribly uncomfortable shoes to look good...if you must, pack comfortable ones in your purse to switch out in between shows.
  • Bring band aids for blisters. There's a lot of walking to be done!
  • Pack your make up for touch ups. It's going to be a warm weekend and you may work up a sweat getting between shows. You always want to be camera ready when at shows.
  • Gift bags and swag are great, but remember that you will have to carry these bags around all day...so keep this in mind and only take what you truly want. 
  • Bring snacks!
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. 
  • Fashion show etiquette: If you RSVP for a party or show, go! If you can't make it, email your contact and let them know. Chances are, there are several people on a waiting list, wanting to attend.

New York Fashion Week Break- Zoya Nail Polish


I'm seeing a trend...nude nails are a must to complete the runway looks...

As the official nail care sponsor for the Rachel Roy Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2009
Fashion Presentation Zoya Nail Polish was pleased to grace the tips for the wonderful parade of Rachel Roy style... All of the models wore Zoya in Tasha (often referred to as the "perfect nude nail polish" by editorial manicurist Jackie Saulsbery).

Upcoming - futuristic - fashion label Ohne Titel (Designed by Flora Gill and Alexa Adams) worked the NYFW runway with lot of black sculptural pieces, draping, sky high shoes (by Cesare Paciotti) and nude nails (by Zoya Nail Polish). Avant garde fashions' favorite manicurist Jackie Saulsbery used Zoya in Gretchen and Dea to provide the collections perfect nude nail - the runways love Zoya Nail Polish!

Targeted at women of all ages with an eye for the wearable "street looks" of today the Tory Burch show delivered and featured a nude Zoya nail! At the designers request, manicurist Jackie Saulsberry and her assistants kept the nails classy, natural and ultra shiny. First all hands and feet were prepped with Qtica Smart Spa Anti-Bacterial Spray (the Germinator) followed by the Zoya Color Lock System (Remove +, Anchor Base Coat, Armor Top Coat and Hurry Up Speed Dry Drops) for a super clean, glossy nail look which complimented the fashions perfectly.
