Everyday I feel so thankful for being able to call what I do my job, and that goes double during Fashion Week. One of my favorite aspects is that Vlad and I are able to work together during fashion week, with me watching the shows so I can report and him photographing so we can tell the story the way we see it.

There was so much build up and anticipation ahead of the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013 collection. Ever since the brand announced that Oscar would take ex-Dior designer John Galliano into his studio, the fashion world has been buzzing about this collection. Would Galliano have a major hand in the design process, would the collection be that of a dual collaboration, would Galliano take the stage with Oscar at the end of the show?
I always look forward to Rebecca Minkoff’s runway show. Since Minkoff first took to Fashion Week, the buzz around her has grown, and her show and namesake brand have exploded as well. Rebecca’s downtown girl took a voyage into the future this season, when a trip to the moon combined with a sophisticated grunge attitude. Even though Rebecca Minkoff is known for her bags, her outerwear is a force to be reckoned with and comes in a close second as my favorite category from the designer.
Last week, Vlad and I went to Woodbury Commons, which is one of my favorite places to shop because even though it’s an outlet mall, it has some of the most incredible outlets in the world – think Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Balenciaga. Whenever we want to expand our wardrobes, we always take a trip to Woodbury Commons to see if it has anything to offer, because even though outlets are hit or miss, the possibility of a hit is always alluring.
New York Fashion Week has officially begun, and I’ve already got quite a few shows under my belt. Some collections stand out to me, and we’ll be bringing you news from the tents throughout the week. I always look forward to the BCBGMAXAZRIA show in particular because I’m comfortable and familiar with the brand’s look, but Max and Lubov have a way of staying true to the brand while reinventing themselves every season.
It seems as though prolific storm is upon the Northeast, and Mother Nature decided to dump on us during Fashion Week. For all the girls who were planning to wear their most trendy sky-high heels, you are going to be disappointed – this weather will simply not permit it. If you try, my guess is you might go boom on the steps of Lincoln Center.
Brightly colored handbags always make me smile because I equate vibrant colors with warm weather and sunshine. This clutch is no different; right when it hit the virtual Net-A-Porter shelves, I began staring. This bag features a variety of sunny brights, all striped together to make a rainbow pattern. The hard box clutch is made with python skin and sealed with a funky bauble closure.
February is one of the busiest months I will experience this entire year, from moving into a new office (YAY!) to Fashion Week, this month is jam packed. I don’t want to leave out our birthday girls who celebrate a February birthday however, so here is the post you are expecting. I know Valentine’s Day falls this month as well, and if you love a purple handbag, which I consider a great neutral, then this guide works too.
If you’ve been a longtime reader of PurseBlog, you know that the team loves the Reed Krakoff Boxer Bag. I’ve found it intriguing from the moment I first laid eyes on it, and I still do. On top of that, I love hearing about collaborations, no matter how big or small, and just in time for Valentine’s Day, Reed Krakoff created two Valentine’s Day ready colorways exclusively for LUXUP.com.
