Opportunities come and go, some are learning experiences and most are memories made....both interrelating with each other. When the opportunity of attending my first ever New York Fashion Week was presented to me a couple of seasons back, I was quick to underestimate myself and immediately say no to the possibility of attending. In early January, the opportunity presented it self again...It's like God was pushing my boundaries with a purpose. So, with a lot of convincing & planning, I decided to take NYFW by the horns and run with it. I might confess though, I was quite scared, nervous, and all excited at the same time. Nothing could ever prepare you for the madness that is fashion week, it really is madness. With 0' degree weather, this Miami girl embraced the cold and tackled on my event schedule with a very open mind that looking cute in that kind of weather was not easy...But I did it (or at least I think I did...!)
I was fortunate enough to have had collaborated with Forever 21 on this very 70's inspired outfit for one full day of shows & presentations. When I was picking out this look, I really wanted something spring oriented, but with pieces that I wouldn't totally freeze in (I did anyways). I took a risk, and picked out some high waist wide leg jeans because somehow I knew it would look chic & compliment my body at the same time meanwhile adding height. Don't let this look fool you though, I was fully layered underneath (thermal leggings, boots, you name it- I had it all on under.)
NYFW was definitely one for the books, and I'll be happy to be back in September for the next one (gladly, it wont be as cold). I met so may amazing people and fellow bloggers who are from all around the world all sharing one common thing, the passion for what we do! I hope you enjoyed this look, and remember to always have confidence in your talent & love.....Saying no to opportunities because of fear, can really have you missing on bigger and greater things!
