Packing for NYFW



Let me start off by saying....... Wooohooo I did it!! I Have always wanted to attend Fashion Week and never had the courage to do it and make it happen! And I finally did it!  I want to share everything with you all so if you all have questions that I don't answer in this blog post leave them as a comment and I will be sure to answer them, if not make a whole other post addressing them!!

This post is dedicated to everything I packed for NYFW S/S2018




Let me start with what I packed in my Purse!
They call the Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Never-FULL for a reason right?! I swear this bag was like a suitcase for me the whole trip! I packed all of my items I needed plus a whole outfit with shoes!
1-Juicy Travel Perfume
2- Card Wallet 
3- Hand Sanitizer
4- Charging pack- I ordered mine from Amazon! 
5- Lip Products I wear almost every day! Nars Lip Gloss- Chelsea Girls, Anastasia matte lip- Dusty Rose, Make up forever Lip Liner- (can't find this color online)
6- Foldable flats
7- Wisps
8- Travel Lotion- Mine was one I got from Bath and Body Works
9- Deodorant
10- Sunglasses
11- Trail Mix- Sent to me from Power Up!
First off, I didn't know where to even start when it came time to pack for NYFW, I started to plan on paper a month out, the things that I wanted to bring with me on my trip and the things that I wanted to bring in my handbag with me through out the day. Once it came down to it, I felt like I had given my self ample amounts of time to really think through what I wanted to bring and if I didn't have it go out and purchase it.


They say wear things that you wouldn't ever wear back home on a normal day! Well... I have some bad news, I would wear all of these outfits on a normal day or for a local event here! I have to say none of what I wore or packed was over the top and only NYFW attire! I can't wait to wear these pieces again real soon!

Lets start with my general packing list:

Mine was custom made by a designer from Bergdorfs (it was super pricey but love how it turned out)

Outfit 6
Dress
this dress was amazing to wear! I wish I had better pictures in it! The events I attended in this outfit were dark lighting. I had to have Mc Dreamy mom alter this dress, I purchased it way too big knowing she was going to need to take it in, I didn't want to get a size too small and it not fit at all) So  his mom made minor adjustments to make it fit better in the bust by adding some darts- I now know I need to get a smaller size or two from what I ordered.
Earrings
Shoes

Outfit 7

This outfit was supposed to be worn for the Banana Republic Presentation but I would have missed my flight if I stood in line.
