Pretty much obsessed with his looks, especially those shoes.(my birthday is coming up) would be a dream.
Opening Ceremony where I pretty much drooled at everything that was hanging on the racks. I was so mad that the Christopher Kane cardigan that was on sale was sold to another lucky customer two days before I got there. :( Although I didn't end up getting anything, I have been eying this cute Muppets x Opening Ceremony sweater.
Entering into the waiting room an adorable receptionist who was dressed up like Emily from Devil Wears Prada asked what I was here for? I told her I had a meeting with Michael and right when I said that there Michael is.

As I looked through Vogue, Elle, Mr.Newton, The Sartorialist, and Jak & Jil, I've always dreamed of going to New York Fashion Week. From looking at street style websites, it seems like everyone is always dress to impress and that people appreciate the minor details that go into anyone's outfit.
That dream turned into a reality.

Thankfully I ended up meeting this amazing mother on the M60 bus headed towards 126st (I think) and she guided me towards the N train. From there I was finally standing in the heart of the city, Columbus Circle.
As I started heading on my journey to Lincoln Center, I recognized that people were constantly staring me done. I mean I was only wearing neon, right?
(if you haven't seen my previous post before).
The rest of the day we just hung out and walked around. Let's just say, it was an amazing way to start off my dream trip.

As the days fly by, New York comes closer. T-minus 3 days.. well more like 2 days, but still super close.
I'm usually the person who waits till the morning of the flight to pack. Not this time. So I start out with around half my shoes.. aka 15 pairs.
Lanvin TrainersThese are definitely the #1 pair that any guy should wear to the airport and/or bring in their luggage. Everyone should own a chic pair of trainers that can be worn with dark denim and a nice plaid button up. Think comfortable, without putting those ugly New Balance running shoes on.
#2 essential pair. When heading out for a night out, these are the perfect shoes to pair with a nice pair of tailored dress pants and an oxford shirt. I feel like every guy should always have some kind of dress shoes in their luggage, because you never know where you'll be headed in the night.
Dr. Marten Applique Boots
#3 Essential Show. Although my boots have cutouts in it. Boots are important for any crazy weather that could happen when traveling. It may be gorgeous in New York one day, but the next day could be snowing. Be prepared.
Of course since I'm different, I have to bring at least 4-6 pairs of shoes just in case there's a fashion emergency.

These pictures were taken when my friends and I went shopping on Michigan Avenue about a week ago. When I found out that Topman and Topshop were having a major sale; I had to go.
here) will not be coming to the Chicago location. I literally cringed when she said that, because I was obsessed with the patterns and fabrics that made up the collection. I guess I'm just going to have to get them online.
Good news is that I got my haircut; now I'm bald.
I can tell you that I usually pack the morning of the trip, but since I'm leaving at 5:00 AM maybe I will pack the night before? Being a procrastinator is not good at all.
Bows And Sequins will be joining me for a night out in New York. We'll do our casual shopping, take outfit pictures, and look cute.
I'll make sure to keep you guys posted on my mini trip, and make sure to follow me on Twitter @ChicOverload and Instagram (Chic Overload) to get instant access to my life.
