Yesterday New York Fashion Week began and I, like majority of attendees, scrambled around the house and pillaged through my closet trying to find something appropriate to wear. During my closet frenzy, Vlad amusedly asked me if all women think we need more clothes in our closets. The answer was a resounding ‘”YES, YES WE DO”.

When not dealing with fashion week and the corresponding sartorial pressure, I am not nearly as concerned with my clothing choices, after all, I dress myself around my handbag.  I am the handbag queen.

In effort to streamline my Fashion Week choices – I decided to apply my day-t0-day ‘dress around the bag’ theory. I opted to start off with a sure-thing, my black Hermes Birkin and headed off to the shows: Nicholas K, BCBG, and Chadwick Bell. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a 388 cashmere top, red and black floral Mink Pink skirt, a sick Oscar de la Renta coin necklace, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

The moral of day 1: Curating the outfit around the handbag never fails.

    You look very stylish Megs, that is the perfect outfit for Fashion Week, will you show your face in the next pictures,  I’m sure you’re very pretty, but don’t feel forced. I love your outfit from that angle!

      I meant to say don’t feel forced to show your face if you don’t want to.

        I may show my face – if it doesn’t look awful! ;) I am one of those people that looks quite silly behind the lens!!

    Dear Megs,  a Birkin doesn’t always save every outfit… A certain style is needed and is of utmost importance. From one handbag queen to another, kind regards Oliana – starbags.eu

    I think your choice of bag for fashion week is perfect.  It’s funny but sometimes I know what bag I want to use but work out the outfit that morning.
    It’s like I carry the bag, but the bag carries the look !
