So You’re Not At Fashion Week?

With fashion week (well at least Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) starting today, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different…a not so typical kick-off-to-fashion-week post. If you came by on Tuesday and/or follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m not in New York right now (not in Chicago either). BUT you don’t have to be on the other side of the world or in NYC to have a good time.

If you’re not currently running across Manhattan in 6-inch platforms hoping to get at least one non blurry runway photo on Instagram, here’s five fashion week alternatives to help you overcome that FOMO.

Pilotto For The Win

This isn’t Peter Pilotto’s first rodeo on CCF. He happens to be one of my favorite British fashion designers, plus his designs have been seen quite a few times in my WWW posts. But something pretty major happened for the duo behind those killer prints (yes there is a second half to Peter Pilotto – Christopher de Vos). Care to find out what that something is?

What Why Where: Missing London

It’s been almost two months since I got back from London and all I have to show for it is a fake British accent and some awesome clothes…so because I can’t have the Tube, Dover Street Market and Kate Middleton in my backyard, I opted for this.

What Why Where: Pilotto + Kane

I’m not one who enjoys matching, but when it comes to Peter Pilotto and Christopher Kane I couldn’t help myself.

What Why Where: Black, White & Blue

You know when you just bought something, you can’t wait to wear it, and you’ll do everything in your power to make an outfit work based around that one thing? That’s how I felt about these Elizabeth and James boots. I had my eye on them for some time, but when Shopbop had their Friends & Family sale, I was like “Carpe Diem!” and I now own one of the most impractical items a Chicagoan can possess…white boots.
