sunnies: miley cyrus
boston fashion week has officially begun for me. today i attended the copley catwalk shows where i saw the fall collections for elie tahari and karen millen. both collections were incredible; lots of lace, structured jackets, leather and rich colors. it was an inspiring show and a great start to my week's festivities. dressing for work and a fashion show was an interesting job. luckily daytime shows tend to be quite casual, as most of the attendees are coming from work. i wore this vibrantly patterned tank with an asymmetrical hemline for a little bit of flair and decided i would try a shorter top with my high-waisted madewell trousers. with a cropped blazer over my tank i think the look really worked.
in about an hour i head out to the absolut fashion event at the estate. i am really looking forward to running into some of my favorite bloggers and friends and taking in a really unique fashion. i have to admit, dressing for this kind of event always stresses me out. i don't frequent clubs and typically feel comfortable being very much myself, but on nights like tonight i tend to overthink the venue and the crowd until i have completely freaked myself out. thankfully i have some great friends to keep the fashion emergencies at bay.
