What I Packed for New York Fashion Week!

Jumpsuit (Wearing size XS - fits TTS) | Jacket (Literally obsessed; wearing size S) | Heels | Chanel Boy Bag from Houston's The Vintage Contessa (dupe here & here - both under $55) | Earrings | Cougar Cuff | Bangle   

Fashion Week came and went in a New York minute! It was great to be in the Big Apple during this chaotic and exciting time! In retrospect, I wish I would have started planning a bit earlier, so that I could have attended more shows! I guess deciding three weeks before the big event just doesn't cut it! That being said, we definitely still had our share of fun at all the parties, and a had several wonderful opportunities to meet some incredible designers. 

What I didn't skip a beat on was outfit planning. I mean that is my forte as a blogger and stylist, right?! Would you believe me if I told you I packed for fashion week in just a carry-on? Yes, I fit three gorgeous Chanel purses from the Vintage Contessa, four pair of shoes, seven outfits and toiletries in a wheelie! Let me tell you, it wasn't easy, but it was practical. 

I was only in New York from Thursday-Sunday, and I couldn't legitimize having to waste the time standing around waiting for checked baggage. A great carry-on never hurts either, this is what I use. Also, if you invest time in planning beforehand, and packing cubes (I swear by these - get all three sizes), it isn't as hard as it sounds. Mix and match shoes, bags, jewelry, and figure essentials like body wash, shampoo, and conditioner the hotel will provide, or you can buy there. Plus, always having a go-to pair of jeans, as well as a little black dress that can be dressed up and down, will have everyone thinking you're wearing a new outfit everyday! 

Here is a look at what I all packed for fashion week! Be sure to check back next week to see the rest of my looks!
