New York: Fashion Week

Apologies all around for being MIA! Last week was wheels off. Deadlines, a visiting friend, an early Friday flight to New York. Manhattan was blanketed with machine gun toting military due to terrorist threats and I've never been more freaked out to ride a subway in my life. Getting a cab was pure hell since everyone else felt the same way. Regardless of that, I was glad to be in Manhattan during the 9/11 Memorial. I did what Bloomberg asked and went about my day and business, although in a pretty somber, reflective mood.
Fashion Week began the day I arrived and was in full swing over the weekend. Yesterday Derek Lam sent some great looks down the runway, many of which are so doable. These printed pants - I'm finally warming up to prints - would be great with a white button down.
The cut of this dress is so subtly sexy.
And the makeup that Estee Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux did was perfection.
The thick brows, warm skin, and nude glossy lips are exactly what I want to look like. Clean, simple, fresh, but thoroughly polished.
And even though the nails look vanish-free, they are actually polished with EL's Nude Attitude nail lacquer. So pretty.
