Fashionista Joy Adaeze documents all of her outfits for every day of NYFW.
What better way to kick off New York Fashion Week (aka my week-long Christmas) than with some fabulous vintage pieces? My inspiration for the first day of NYFW was mixed prints — a fun way to add character to any look! After much searching through my mother’s fashion archives, I came across this gorgeous print top and harem style pants — so me! As an accent to the outfit I chose some amazing Ruffian Lucite platforms. I am sucker for anything with a Lucite heel.
I loaded up on an assortment of bangles along with my beloved Jeremy Scott for Swatch watch. I wore a fun unicorn necklace from Forever 21 to add some diversity to the look. My new favorite way to accessorize is by piling on statement rings. The more the merrier! I am wearing two rings from Forever 21. And I can’t leave the house without my current obsession — my vintage 1950s glasses from Fabulous Fanny’s. Last but not least, my leopard turban (a scarf from H&M) finished off the look!
On Day one, I attended the Black Bloggers Breakfast, hosted by Managing Editor of Essence.com, Emil Wilbekin and ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Constance White. Special guest Lala Anthony looked gorgeous and was super sweet! I mingled with my favorite fashion bloggers; Kathryn Finney, Christina Brown and Jessica C. Andrews. I also ran into the fabulous Julee Wilson from Huffington Post and social media maven Bevy Smith.
Later that night for Fashion’s Night Out, my friend Sureme and I ventured off to Lord and Taylor where Solange was the DJ for the evening. She was amazing and I danced to every song she played! Then off to Versace where Drake was the special guest. It was truly an elegant affair. What’s better than being surrounded by gorgeous Versace clothes and hearing Drake on the 1’s and 2’s?! It was the best Fashion’s Night Out yet!
