Our craziest snowstorm of the season just had to be on the first day of Fashion Week, right? I remember looking out the window and seeing crazy flurries and rising snow all over. My family and friends asked me, “You sure Fashion Week isn’t cancelled?” I had to laugh but I so was dreading going out in that weather!
But I did. You guys would’ve been so proud of me too — I was dressed properly! From a comfy fur beanie down to leather chunky heeled boots. Still, the snow completely wet my hair, dropping every single curl. Womp.
Thankfully, we had better weather in the coming days. I lost count of how many I attended and I even got to do a couple backstage with MAC Cosmetics! If you follow my snap, you’d also see Cardi B, The McClure Twins and highly anticipated shows I was fortunate to attend.
What I enjoyed the most was meeting my insta friends! It’s seriously amazing what social media can do. I met up with my friend Dani for the first time and it was awesome. We met up in Laduree and flicked it up in Soho.
I had a fever the day before and it was horrible (this crazy weather, man). I hadn’t been that sick in forever. Thankfully, it went down before my next shows in the city. This sweater sponsored from Zaful
kept me cozy the whole time! I recently heard about the brand and was hesitant to collaborate but I was pleasantly surprised.
First off, I love gray so that gave the sweater an immediate win. The trumpet sleeves and soft material were huge added bonuses. It was really well-made, too! The sweater felt very luxurious. I was receiving love on both my sweater and my ALDO boots all day! I wasn’t too hot or too cold which is perfect when recovering from the bouts of a flu.
This fashion week really showed me my grit and tenacity. Do what you gotta do!
