9:00am
Hello! Watch out weekend, 'cause here I am, still in the office. Ready to take on another day, another night of NYFW. Wearing a vintage black slouchy blazer from Malin Landaeus in Williamsburg, a green and navy twisted suspender skirt by Boy from Barney's. Take the early morning cam phone pic, now it's time to roll.

10:30am
Arrive at Preen for backstage interviews. Spot Liu Wen in an awesome studded denim jumpsuit, Alex Wang bag and Adidas x Jeremy Scott winged sneakers. Dang! I love seeing models' personalities through their street clothes.

Snap a shot of the very sweet Anja Rubik getting her hair and makeup done. I love her oversized sweater with red Chanel bag and leopard flats. Very classic.

Abbey Lee looking awesome in an oversized, rose-colored blazer and a new platinum bob. I approve.

Preen designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi talking to fashion journalist Hilary Alexander backstage.  Their inspiration came from a trip to Egypt, and the clothing reflected what they saw in the sky and the clouds.

Walking into the show, I ran into my former Vogue co-worker, the always chic Stephanie La Cava.

11:30am
Heading over to take my seat, I ran into the lovely Kristin Reiter and Valerie Killeen from the famed Bleach Black blog.

Front row stunners Leigh Lezark and Harley Viera-Newton. Two very cool chicks who really embody the Preen girl.

The gorgeous Xiyin Tang, from Refinery29 and Yale Law School. Amazing Fendi bag.

NY Times/Vogue UK writer Max Berlinger and Interview/Style.com writer Colleen Nika, in Jen Kao. Both young, amazing fashion journalists.

The show was dreamy and beautiful -- I loved the shades of blue. Most importantly, more suits!

2:00pm
Head to Elise Overland. Front row I snap Nicky Hilton and Amanda Hearst.

"Some of my inspiration came from the movie Blow Up," Overland told me backstage.

"And then I also looked at colonial way of dressing. I mashed those things together." she continued.

Doutzen Kroes, front row.

Terence Koh and Waris Ahluwalia.

6:30pm
Down to Milk Studios to finish off the evening. Quick stop at the Staerk presentation. I was particularly drawn to the styling of the necklaces and belts.

7:00pm
Backstage at Erin Fetherston, very sweet colors and silhouettes.

I congratulated Erin and asked her about the kind of girl in her collection. "I was thinking about the kind of woman who would travel to the ends of the earth to find the most special, most unique, most rare, the most exotic things and wear them back  to her own life in a modern context. She's an advernturer and and explorer, shes light-hearted, she's a  lover, she's passionate."

Everyone received a beautiful flower, and Ingrid Schram looked lovely holding it against her blue dress.

8:00pm
Pamela Love Jewelry presentation. I have been obsessed with her work since the start -- she really speaks to the modern New York girl.

I am predicting a CFDA win for her, seriously.

8:30pm
Backstage with the lovable designer Peter Jensen. He told me, "We looked at Shelley Duvall - an old Vogue shoot she was doing. It was trying to pin down what we liked about that thing."

Model board for Peter Jensen.

Full looks from Peter Jensen.

Comical color pops everywhere.

Oh, those eyelashes. Dying

Little Shelley Duvalls every way I turn my head.

Prep, prep and more prep.

More fun color in the shoes.

10:00pm
Swing by Soho House and was very excited to run into all my favorite bloggers. Jane from Sea of Shoes, Laia from Geometric Sleep, Elizabeth from White Lightning, and Tavi from Style Rookie. I love how our photo is in accidental order of height. Quick catch up with the girls, and ready to call it a night.
