For someone who strongly believes the location of where your photos are taken is just as important as the clothes you’re wearing it always stresses me out having to find somewhere to shoot my outfits during Fashion Week. There’s very limited options of either a carpark, another carpark, or a brown brick wall that just happens to be to the side of a carpark. Luckily Zanita was around during the week to help shoot my looks and, like always, was able to work like a pro and make the most of the location. How she managed to get the concrete looking like glimmering glitter baffles me but considering how beautiful and sunny the day was (and the fact we got to spend more than 5 minutes together!) made it feel like there was already a little bit of magic in the air.
I can’t even begin to explain how busy the week was and the weeks leading up to it, so weirdly enough I didn’t have much time or energy left to invest into what I was going to be wearing during the week. I know, it’s fashion week, how is that even possible? Doesn’t everyone like plan out their outfits weeks in advance? To my knowledge, yes, they do, and if they tell you otherwise they’re probably lying. I kind of ran out of options by Wednesday so I opted for classic shapes like shift dresses, pencil skirts and pointed pumps to get me through the week and these super fun shades by Karen Walker that I’m completely obsessed with. Perhaps because they’re the first pair of round glasses I’ve found that are so oversized I can somewhat avoid looking like Yoko Ono. Note: They also come in handy for deflecting glittering and gleaming concrete.
