Friday, February 8, 2013 California Dreaming: Ready For NYFW Staff Picks

25287.0.zoom

Packing is hard enough without having to worry about a total change of climate, swarms of photographers and close proximity to the most fashionable people on earth. Then again, there’s nothing we love more than a challenge! Keeping in mind fashion, function and, most importantly, fun, here are the key pieces our staff considers utterly essential to a good time at NYFW!

Isabella, Social Media Associate:

“I would definitely grab this High Voltage Crop Top. It’s the perfect layering piece for high-waisted everything, though I’d probably stick out like a true California Girl and freeze my buns off!”

Cherysse, Jr. Buyer:

The In Vogue Jumpsuit takes you from day to night, making it a staple for every trip and occasion. It’s totally the new party dress.”

26030.0.zoom

Madison, Copywriter:

“Because these Workin Knee High Boots mean business…and they have a wedge heel so you can hit the streets without dying in stilettos!”

24205.0.zoom

Rosa, Fashion Content Editor:

“I think one of the must-haves for fashion week is a pair of sunglasses, just like these Bright Future Shades. Nights are looooong and too much fun so you definitely need these in the mornings.”

23116.0.zoom

Dee, Asst. Designer:

The White Heat Leather Jacket is a NASTY GAL original, that takes the classic badass moto jacket shape, elevates it with the functional hem-to-hem zippers all over and makes it chic with the optic white leather. BAM.”

22844.0.zoom

Kelly, Jr. Buyer:

“Definitely the Reflections Knit Cardi – A cozy showstopper that’s equal parts form and function.”

22448.0.zoom

Kaitlyn, Sr. PR Manager

“Why not add a lil’ color when everyone else will go for black?  The Neon Feather Dress looks sophisticated and fun at the same time. FW here I come. ”

21465.0.zoom

Jacqueline, Jr. Buyer:

“Let’s face it. In the end, you always reach for your trusty black ankle boots. The Rafaela Boot is beyond special with its beautiful engraved metal hardware.”

20874.0.zoom

Tammy, Marketing Manager:

“I would have to have the Selma Satchel, since I could stash my iPad in it, day accessories like lipstick, hand santizer (lots of hand shakes and cheek kisses), iPhone charger, snacks (there is often no time to eat between events), and Band-aids for the potential blisters I would have from walking around in heels all day. Plus, its shoulder strap is key because I can take pictures with one hand and have a drink in the other.”

25798.0.zoom

Liz, Sr. Copywriter:

“The Forget Paris Blouse is deceptively easy piece, this pretty little top can be tucked into high-waisted jeans and worn with an oversize tuxedo jacket. And it still looks cute when the jacket has to come off because it got waaaaay too hot packed in a small space, watching a show!”
