Seven days and counting! Fashion Week in NYC is almost upon us, and the event invitations are piling up… As part of the Kohl’s Rock and Republic blogger team, I am particularly excited to rock out at their launch event at the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom.
In preparation for said event, I experimented with the ever popular “smoky eye” look, guided by a playlist of makeup “how-to” videos on YouTube. Hmm, there is definitely a "range" in the quality of programming. As long as it’s more smoldering than smoke damage, I’m satisfied.
The Kohl’s collaboration with Rock and Republic is officially available online today, and I chose my picks from the collection for fashion week. I loved the skinny jeans in the dark wash that has some stretch. There was a skull print scarf/top combo that projected scary and sweet at the same time…Great for keeping people on edge. I like a good blazer as a wardrobe staple. The one from Rock and Republic makes it a bigger fashion statement with rhinestone tassel embellishments. Très glam.
The new collection also has some edgy shoes. How much do these studded platform heels rule? I'm going to do some serious butt-kicking in these (if I don't topple over first). What I really love? So far, I haven’t found anything that topped $100.
Ok, now it's your turn, what show or event for New York Fashion Week are you most looking forward to? And, of course, what will you wear?
