By Day Four of Fashion Week, the honeymoon period had officially worn off. My feet — having been in heels more consecutive days than I could remember — felt like plump little sausages. My body — having consumed more coffee (and prosecco) than water — was really not pleased with me. And my eyes — having been open an average of 20 hours a day for four days straight — had some meeeeeean bags underneath them.
That said, I was not about to turn down a last minute ticket to Vivienne Tam when the opportunity presented itself. Rule #76: No excuses. Play like a champion!
I had about 60 minutes to head from the West Village to my apartment, change, and head across town to Lincoln Center for the show. In a dire situation like this, ‘easy chic’ is the perfect solution. Not to mention, I’d been waiting for the right opportunity to wear my new H&M jumpsuit. With no minutes (or brain capacity) to spare on coordinating a complicated outfit… it was the all-black one-piece for the win!
I know I sound like a broken record, but all black, or even black-and-white ensembles, are so classic and versatile. They act as a sartorial blank canvas, one that you can style any number of ways with different bags, shoes, and accessories. As someone who has an inordinate number of handbags, heels, and fun jewelry, this type of blank slate is my favorite!!
On Day Four, I kept it fairly simple, with black and gold accessories, a deep red pop on my lips, and some ‘raaarrrrr’ on my feet.
The show itself was absolutely incredible. Vivienne Tam’s models were walking into the spring/summer season with playful floral patterns and a crisp, bold color palette. Nature was the running theme throughout her collection, having embroidered some form of clouds, trees, birds and/or flowers into almost all of her pieces.
