Well phew, thank goodness Valentine’s is over.. I don’t know about you but the comedown the day after whether your single or not is exhausting! The comparing, the over-indulgence, yep so long until next year! However I did have a rather eventful Valentine’s Day…
I’m sure you all know Fashion Week here in NYC has been in full swing and just like Glastonbury, Fashion Week is always doomed to have the worst weather possible, DOOMED! I’ve experienced some terrible Somerset House weather but my god nothing prepared me for -15c. I knew it was cold, so I spent the prior two days working from home instead of braving NYFW but who could say no to the Victoria Beckham show? I got a cool email a few days before with the opportunity to see the show & also go backstage with Max Factor, so I put together the best outfit I could with my extreeemly limited wardrobe and headed to the show, albeit nearly dead with the cold! I quite like how the whole look turned out though, layering black on black with different textures. Edelle did an amazing job shooting these lovely snow laced shots. I only live four blocks from my subway stop and honestly I thought I might collapse half way and turn into an ice cube…I’ve never experienced cold like it, in my opinion it was actually dangerous to be anyway fashionable this week. I really don’t know how some girls did it!
Backstage was surprisingly pretty chill, and we even got to spend some time talking to legendary makeup artist Pat Mcgrath which was amazing (if you follow me on snapchat @Tarmarz you would of seen her wise words of makeup wisdomage) and the set at the Cipriani was such a dramatic backdrop for the show. The latest collection from Victoria Beckham was extremely different from her usual, lots of stripes & checks in 70’s hues. Such emphasis on prints & a trend based colour palette wasn’t to my personal taste, but there was beautiful silhouettes as per the norm. Definitely admire the design team for changing it up this season. With such an intimate setting, fashion legends such as Grace Coddington seemed to just breeze by me so easily (Did I mention the whole Beckham clan?) but I also got the opportunity to chat with bloggers I love including Niomi Smart & Kristina Bazan.
Annnnnnnd then I bought myself a heart-shaped Dunkin Donut and called it a day haha. So glad you seemed to enjoy my last pre-valentine’s post btw, I love it when you leave comments! Also I’m doing a fun instagram takeover soon on the OPSH page in Ireland & would love if you guys headed over & followed to catch my posts there on Wednesday! See you in the next, T.
