From PROJECT to NYFW:M

I was lucky enough

to get called back for #BloggerPROJECT at PROJECT Trade Show again this season. I’m currently in my third season (off to Las Vegas in a few weeks for the second leg) and I just finished New York Fashion Week: Men’s just last week, so I teamed up with French Connection to show you a few looks that I wore from their current season to each event. PROJECT brings back memories of a nine-to-five — which is fine, I need friendly reminders of structure to get things done — but with complete flexibility to do what I need to do for the blog: get insight into what’s coming up for Fall 2017 (insider note: French Connection steps it up!). It’s honestly what I love most about what I do; and it’s really rewarding when designers actually appreciate constructive feedback — some of whom actually take it to make last minute adjustments to their upcoming season (minor, nothing grand; I suppose when I have my Wintour moment, I can be a bit more forward and daring with a firm disposition in my presumptions — all for the love of fashion, of course). Here’s what I wore for one of the days…



A special thanks to French Connection for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions expressed herein are my own.

The following week was already New York Fashion Week: Men’s — schedule lined up from Monday through Thursday, filled with shows and presentations of some of my favorite designers. Men’s Day, which is the unofficial start to NYFW:M, is actually a favorite of mine since it’s comprised of simultaneous shows mainly from smaller (yet still very talented) designers nestled in one building that you easily pop in and out of. If you follow French Connection on the ‘gram, you will have seen a preview from the first half of the day when I took over their stories to cover some of the shows. I wore this outfit — off my beaten path since I typically don’t wear suited looks — but I’ve always admire a tailored look, especially if the styling can be more casual with sneakers and an unkept shirt. Thoughts?
