I don’t want to shatter any dreams and expectations that y’all might have about New York Fashion Week, but it’s not all about fashion for me.
One of my favorite moments of NYFW the past 2 season has been sitting down with a woman who I admire greatly, Lottie Oakley, in the American Express Skybox and talking about my journey into the fashion industry. It is an experience where I get to share my sentiments about the industry, hard work ethics, PLUS pick her brain about her seasoned experience as a major player in fashion. Learning from someone like Lottie has been such a blessing…and learning and growing in this industry is something I will always continue to do.
Speaking of learning (and teaching)….I love being able to share new fashion finds with you, my readers, every single day. I love learning about new designers and hidden treasures…and I get so excited to pass it on to y’all! So, with that said….let’s talk about the shoes I have on!
Sorry there isn’t a great close up photo of them….but let me just say, if you have loved these animal print Valentinos, but don’t love the price tag (UGH $1395?!), then I’m here to save the day: I scooped up these IDENTICAL ones at one of my favorite boutiques in Dallas, Rio Ritz….AND you can shop them online as well….and celebrate the $50 price tag!
Go ahead, treat yourself….hell, it’s Friday! TGIF!
