Once again it's that time to share my experience! The chaos, cosmetics and costumes of that wonderful crazy. That crazy we fashionistas love and get revved up for every six months - the experience we call New York Fashion Week! This season, Spring/Summer 2018, because of work obligations, I headed to NYC to begin seeing shows on Friday, September 8 rather than that Wednesday when it officially kicked-off. I skipped one show earlier that day and opted to meet a friend/blogger/sorority sister Evelyn of Fashion Briefs (pictured above wearing the hat), who's a newbie on the fashion week circuit, doing all the Nolcha Shows with her instead. For this post I'm actually going to switch things up a bit and shift things in reverse, starting at Day 2 instead, since Day 1 has more shows and pics to cover. Day 2 shows started with what was actually a presentation, not a show. As you'll see below, it was the Banana Republic X Olivia Palermo Fall 2017 collabo (that's right Fall, not Spring/Summer '18),"see now, buy now" presentation. Let me tell you it was a jam packed, mad house, both inside their 5th avenue Flagship store in Flatiron, and outside on the sidewalks getting in and even on the street! This is typical NYFW cray and I wouldn't expect it to be any other way!
I know this post is long, but please indulge me and continue to scroll down further, to witness my Day 1, full of fashion and fun! Let's start below at Day 2, Banana Republic, where I'm also wearing Fall Banana Republic for my look and then move on to newcomer To Be Thrill by Edison Lu and then special occasion designer Mac Duggal. Enjoy friends!

Divas, although these Marc Fisher shoes I'm wearing look great and while the heel isn't too high, word to the wise - carry an extra large bag with you, something the size of a tote not only for all those goodies and giveaways you collect during the week, but to carry an extra pair of flat, walking shoes or kicks for comfort. Running in heels during NYFW can be killer on your feet. Girl, what, my feet were screaming, lol!!! Stay tuned for my next post on Day 3 & 4 looks and runway shows! #SybilStreetSTYLe
