Mom’s First New York Fashion Week

Happy Friday! I got a cutie on the blog today! One I call Mom and baby Weaver calls Lola! 🙂 As you know, Mom attended her first fashion week this year and fit in oh so well! We may or may not have coordinated our outfits, haha! I absolutely adore my Mom and to be able to bring her along for a fashion week experience meant so much to me and her too.

Today I am sharing our coordinating looks 🙂 , some of her fashion week agenda plus a few things that will make you LOL

I was so fortunate this year to have worked with many agencies repeatedly that most of my invites were for a front row seat. So naturally Mom got to sit front row, receive swag bags, got all her photos taken by the photographer, etc. I was like “Mom, just know I didn’t have all this front row goodness my first show!” haha. She was loving it.

Mom also attended the Vogue Magazine x Kendra Scott party with me. She got to design her own charm earrings with the KS team and when they handed them to her she was like “these are free?” LOL. My Mom was cracking me up so much during fashion week. I literally need to write a post titled “overheard by Mila at fashion week”.

Mom: Jumpsuit: Forever 21 | Heels: DSW | Sunglasses: American Eagle (similar)

If you know my Mom at all you know that she is the sweetest, most loving and outgoing woman. But you probably also know that she is as blunt as they come. Not in a rude way, just in a Filipino, no filter kind of way, haha. There was a girl that had a huge, I mean HUGE (and gorgeous!) diamond ring on talking about how her husband designed it for her and my Mom responded with “is that real?” O…M…G… I literally just stood there for a moment didn’t even know what to do. After I picked my jaw off the floor and realized the girl didn’t respond I was just like yes, it’s real Mom then I tell the girl “your ring is stunning”, grab my Mom and just move onto the rest of the party and accept the fact we had an enemy in the room now, lol. It’s hilarious now but honestly I was terrified because I didn’t want that person to think my Mom was rude (she’s not at all!) she was just asking an honest question that other people may have been thinking.

Another funny thing that happened with Mom was we were at a fashion show and both people sitting next to us were videoing live on their Instagram and Facebook accounts. This outfit comes down the runway in front of us and Mom says “hmmm, no one is going to like that”. I didn’t know if we were going to get kicked out of there or if someone was going to hire her! Ahhhh, never a dull moment with my Mama!

We seriously had the best time and you can see why she kept me laughing the whole time. She kept telling me how thankful she was that she got to come and that just meant the world to me guys. When I first booked her flight out to NYC I was stressing out a little because fashion week is go, go, go. It’s not all glam life like it seems. I have back to back meetings, running all over the city and I just wanted to make sure I could schedule as much time as I could with my mom during this time. I am so thankful my aunt and cousins live in New York because they were able to take her to do all the tourist things while I was at meetings!

This might be too deep for a Friday but honestly, I am just at a point in my life that I know our time with our loved ones are limited and I will basically do anything my parents and family ask of me because we may never get that moment again. You know what I mean? So stressing out about schedules, having to pay for multiple hotel rooms, multiple Uber rides to my aunts house and back into the city were just minor things compared to the memories we created during such a special time with the most special person!

For some moments, we only get one chance.

Floral Suit Athleisure Style

Happy Monday beautiful people! Did you have an amazing weekend? I sure hope so! As you probably already know we celebrated my sweet husbands birthday this weekend. And you probably know that because literally that’s all I talked about and shared on stories all weekend, lol! Sorry for the birthday overload! I just clearly love birthdays, especially when we get to show the ones we love how much we love them!

Today I am sharing one of my favorite outfits from New York Fashion Week! This matching floral suit paired with an Adidas bodysuit.

nyc-street-style nyfw-fashion nyfw-street-style chic-floral-outfit street-style-fashion floral-suit two-piece-womens-suit

Outfit Details: Floral Blazer: ASOS | Floral Pants: ASOS | Adidas Bodysuit: ASOS (also I know they call it a bodysuit but it’s totally a bathing suit! 🙂 ) but I was okay with that because now I can wear it as a swimsuit! | Handbag: DSW | Heels: Steve Madden | Sunglasses: Quay

I know not everyone would see a completely floral suit and say “I need it” but I am one of those people lol and I loved this suit as soon as it came in. I had to get it hemmed though because I’m only 5’3″ but other than that I love the fit! I am totally going to wear this to work with a plain black or white cami. The Adidas bodysuit was just the perfect touch for this New York Street Style. I am normally a 4 but had to size up one size in all 3 Asos pieces for reference!

So we had such a great weekend celebrating the hubs but I definitely overcommitted on so much (but what’s new?) and now this week is going to be crazy. Tuesday and Wednesday I will be at an annual offsite meeting with our management team and then when I get back Wednesday I gotta pack up the whole fam again for a little family trip and church trip we have had planned. It’s like I say yes to all the things and then later just figure out how I can make it work, lol. Anywho, it was kind of nice prepping for this family trip because we will be doing a lot of kid and outdoor activites so I’m packing a lot of casual wear which is complete opposite from what I packed for NYC. My feet need a little break, haha!

I hope you guys all have an amazing week!

5 Things You May Have Not Known About Fashion Week(s)

5 Things You May Have Not Known About Fashion Week(s)

Hi babes! Ahhhh, still on a high from Fashion Week but am so happy to be back with my baby! I mean I really missed my husband when I was at Fashion Week last year but it was crazy hard being away from baby Weaver this year. I’m not sure I can do 5 days without him ever again!

As you may have seen, my sweet Mom was able to partake in the New York Fashion Week festivities and I couldn’t have been happier! She was a natural sitting in the front row with her sunglasses on, haha! But she did have some questions which inspired me to write this post! Today I am sharing some fun facts about fashion week. But first, outfit details.

what-to-wear-to-fashion-weeknyfw-street-style

Outfit Details: Top & Pant Set: EzPopsy | Button Up Top: similar from Forever 21 here, here and here | Heels: DSW | Handbag: DSW | Sunglasses: Quay

Okay, so story time. During one of my late night shopping escapades I came across EzPopsy online. It was love at first sight when I saw this matching set so I purchased it immediately but I wanted to give you a heads up and let you know that it’s an overseas website so it took like 3 weeks to get to me! Thankfully it came in before New York Fashion Week because honestly I forgot I even ordered it! Anyway, I just wanted to give you all a heads up because they have some really cute items on the site but just know it takes a while to arrive. It’s kind of like how Shein used to be but Shein has gotten so much faster with shipping. Shopping tip for Shein is that if you see an express shipping option on an item, that item is available to arrive within the next week usually.

5 FACTS ABOUT FASHION WEEKS

1- The Big Four aka New York, Milan, London and Paris hold 2 shows a year. – The fall/winter collections are featured in February and the spring/summer collections are featured in September. So when you saw me at fashion week this September what we were actually previewing is 2019’s spring/summer collection. The shows are timed this way so that buyers can place orders and have them arrive in stores in time for the season. My first fashion week was actually a Mercedes Benz Fashion Week that used to be held in LA. It was 2006 and it was my first Buying job. It was quite an amazing experience so as you can imagine it’s a dream come true to be invited to New York Fashion Week not as a Buyer but as myself, for being an influencer. Pinch me.

2- There are about 40 fashion weeks held in different cities around the world every year. – Smaller fashion weeks are held in many countries and cities but the Big Four are the most prominent.

3- New York Fashion Week is the oldest. – In 1943 New York had their first ever fashion week. The newest of the Big Four is London. Fashion Week started as a trade only event that was only open to buyers and manufacturers. – As you may have noticed,  now celebrities and influencers are attending the shows.

4- Fashion shows usually last about 20 minutes. – And usually never start on time, haha. Last year I had so many shows back to back and that was such a bad idea because the first show would start 45 minutes late and then the next show started on time. It’s so unpredictable. If one designer is showing then the runway show will last about 15-20 minutes. If you are going to a show where multiple designers are being featured than of course that will be longer. I attended 2 of those types of shows this year and they lasted about 30-45 minutes.

matching-two-piece-sets

5- Not all shows are runways shows– In addition to runway shows, designers hold presentations where the models are wearing the clothing, posed in certain areas around the room or just walking around so that you can actually see the garment and touch the fabric if you want to. I actually really love presentations because they are more intimate and it’s always amazing to see the creativity that does into the set up. Here are examples from the Lela Rose presentation. It took place on a boat and really captures where the inspiration came from.

So tell me, are any of these fun facts new to you? I always love hearing your comments and questions about fashion week. Thank you all for the support during my time at fashion week! I was loving all of your DM’s and am so happy my dancing friends could entertain you, haha!

love you! xo, Roselyn

3 Trends You Will See Everywhere This Fall

3 Trends You Will See Everywhere This Fall

Yay, we made it to the middle of the week! I guess it wasn’t that hard with a 3 day weekend 🙂 I’m still a little under the weather, blah! But I’m drinking all the vitamin C and liquids because your girl leaves for New York tomorrow!

Today I am sharing 3 trends that are huge for Fall and I know we will see so much of them during New York Fashion Week.

Outfit Details: Blazer Dress: Nasty Gal | Heels: DSW | Earrings: Vintage Chanel from Vintage Contessa | Quilted Crossbody: Amazon | Sunglasses: Quay

1. Blazer Dresses- I personally love this trend. You all already know that I love blazers but I love how the dress silhouette gives the oversized blazer a more feminine touch.

2. Polka Dots- Polka dots used to be looked at as a print that was for the younger crowd but move over toddlers, mama gets to match you this season! 🙂 It’s such a fun print that we all need in our life. This blazer dress is like a two in one combo!

3. White Shoes- This was huge for Fall and Winter last year and I’m so happy it’s back this year. I didn’t get enough wear out of my white ankle booties so I’m excited to wear them again this season!

Are you excited about these trends for Fall? What trends are you most excited about?
