I’m baaaaaack, y’all! And I’m sick. as. a. dog. Oof, it’s the inevitable “fashion week flu,” and I’ve got it. But since I heart you – and I’ve missed you! – I wanted to post at least one show from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week today…my favorite. DKNY.
Let me tell you…everyone who was anyone was spotted at this show (which took place at Cedar Lake in the artsy Chelsea neighborhood) – from bloggers Bryan Boy and Susie Bubble to major editors Nina Garcia and Brandon Holley. And then there were the celebrities Louise Roe and Ashley Greene, ambassador for the label. The crowd looked stunning, and all of the gorgeous spring clothing didn’t disappoint either. I was lucky enough to be seated right in an aisle so was able to see all of the jaw-dropping looks – from head to heel.
P.S. We also enjoyed Karlie’s Kookies from model Karlie Kloss. I ate mine on the way to catch a cab back, and it was so divine.

What’s a New Yorker? Someone who’s ready for anything. Day to night, street to chic. She loves a contradiction; it defines her style. Just give her the elements, she’ll take it from there. For her, fashion is personal. An endless possibility of expression. Just like her city. — DKNY

|I fell in love immediately with this black and white nylon swimsuit…a style most any of us can wear.|
