All in all #NYFW #SS16 #FW15 was a huge success and an incredible experience. Can’t wait for the next one. I will leave you with some tips on how to stay energized and looking fresh faced during #NYFW.

7 TIPS TO STAY ENERGIZED AND LOOKING FRESH DURING NYFW

1. Make sure to start each day with a hearty breakfast – You will be non stop on the go once the shows start and you wont have time to eat lunch everyday. I found that eating a big breakfast kept me energized throughout the day and on the move.

2. Drink plenty of water throughout the day – Not only was it humid in New York City, but it was extremely hot. Record breaking heat. Its important to keep your body and skin hydrated in this kind of weather…To avoid drying out your skin and exhausting yourself.

3. Beauty Sleep – We all know New York is the city that never sleeps. However it is crucial to get in those Zzz’z. Your body and mind will thank you. Especially the next day, when you have to get up for a whole day of fashion week shows and events.

4. Make sure to bring comfortable shoes – If your anything like me, you love a good pair of high heels. But lets be realistic…10 days straight, day and night isn’t practical. Make sure to bring comfortable yet stylish flats to mix into your fashion week wardrobe. Your feet will thank you.

5. Game Plan – Definitely take the time to organize and plan out each day…outfit in all. Its impossible to make it to every show, but going into each day with a game plan helps you keep it all together.

6. Essentials – Every girl has them. And for me it was my Mario Badescu rosewater facial spray with aloe. (hydration in a bottle). Olay facewash. My MAC lipsticks. Curling wand. Sunnies. And my compact camera.

7. Enjoy – Take the time to stop and appreciate the city, restaurants, nightlife, runway shows, and events. It will flash by quickly, so make sure to capture those life lasting memories. After all it is #NYFW and a dream come true.

ENJOY

Fashion Blogger to Know – Piece, Love and Sole.

Brittany Wilson is the Fashion Force behind the blog Piece, Love and Sole which is about fashion, accessories and New York.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

When I relocated to New York from the DC area a dear friend suggested that I start a blog to stay connected to fashion. It originally started as a blog about affordable accessories but then I noticed that I was experiencing so many fun things in New York that I wanted to share those too. So the purpose of the blog morphed from just accessories to fashion and New York.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

It’s a different spin on the phrase “Peace, Love and Sole” Piece = as in a piece of clothing or a piece of me, Love = the blog is about things I love, Sole = Shoes…because who doesn’t love shoes.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

I blog from my view and with my voice. That’s the best part about blogging, you can be an individual.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

I like to be comfortable and chic. If you aren’t comfy it shows…and that’s not cute. Dresses are the easiest thing to wear but I love a good graphic tee too. I like to play around with fashion. So one day I’m in boyfriend jeans, a tee and sneakers, the next I could be in a fitted dress and stilettos and then the next day I could be in leather pants and a blouse.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
Diane Von Furstenberg

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

A friend of mine has a clothing line Yunes Swathe, they’ve really grown into something beautiful. I don’t really have any favorites but I definitely love to explore. I think my favorites are usually unique designers that I come across in flea markets.

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

My printed sets. I love that you can wear them as one outfit or break the separates apart and make a completely new look

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR? Oh! Probably a black sheath dress, a statement necklace and some killer, strappy shoes

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd and IV. Sweatpants by Childish Gambino

 

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

The Style and Beauty Doctor

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

Ugh, I’m sure there isn’t just one. Years ago I wore a blazer, button down shirt, jean skirt and flat moccasin boots to the club. I just can’t…

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

1) If it’s not comfortable before you leave the house, change.
2) If you have no idea what you want to wear, start with your shoes.
3) Lipstick fixes everything

WHAT IS THE STYLE OF THE CITY YOU LIVE IN AND WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR CITIES STYLE?

New York is such a fashion mecca but I also love that there are people that live here that aren’t caught up in fashion and do their own thing. To me, that’s the best type of style.

 

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?

To organize celebrity closets.

 

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?

I worked in a dental office in high school

 

WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL DAY LIKE?

During the week it’s fairly uneventful and I’m ok with that. Work and working out. I may host or attend an event during the evening once a week (with the other company I run with my business partner: Dolls of the City). But I spend a lot of time thinking about what’s next and writing that down in my notebook.

 

GUILTY PLEASURE?

Scrolling through Instagram forever lol
