Fashion Week Necessities

Fashion Week Necessities

NYFW is upon us. Here are some items you should be sure to throw in your bag to ensure a smooth and successful week!
It all starts with the right bag. You want something large enough to hold your essentials, but not so big you throw out your shoulder. Try to aim for a structured bag so that even when filled to capacity, your bag doesn't look bulky and sloppy. That is not a good look. Extra bobby pins and hair ties are a must especially with this windy, snowy weather we are having here in the city. One little bobby pin and fix a huge hair problem. Bandaids are essential. Running from show to show will give any girl a blister, sometimes even in the best shoes. Paper cuts could arise as well. You never know, it's always better to be over prepared than under. A camera (or iPhone) is a no brainer. Depending on your outfit, red lipstick is handy to have at the ready for a little touch up for a bold look. You want to look polished, of course, but that doesn't mean you have to strut around in 5 inch heels. Booties are my go to shoe. They are more supportive and comfortable, and with this weather, definitely warmer. Last, but not least, and possibly the most important item to have in your bag for Fashion Week, are your business cards. You never know who you might meet and what opportunities could arise, but how will you be remembered if you can't give someone a business card. You might just get one in return! 
Hope these little pointers helped you out! Good luck this week, and stay warm!
