planning for fashion week I’m not going to lie I had a couple screen
grabs on my phone of looks that I was inspired by, or wanted to create.
One look was one that I snapped from a magazine I was reading in the
summer, and it was an image of Karlie Kloss wearing a red plaid skirt, a
leather jacket, loafers, and a cute little bag (with a little pom pom).
If you’d asked me in late July if I would have successfully pulled this
off for fashion week I would have said you’re crazy! Alas I’m oh so
happy to have been proven wrong.

This look might seem simplistic for fashion week, and arguably it probably is, but to be honest I enjoy a minimalist look. I love just taking basic looks and adding just a little twist here and there. Sure I could roll up to fashion week in a big bird costume, and probably get featured in ALL the magazines, but that’s not me you guys, and that’s just not my style.
Actually come to think of it this look was featured on one of Flare Magazine’s best street style from fashion week check it out here. Flare Magazine.
Speaking of playing off the feminine and masculine… can you believe I did this hair myself? It looks super fancy right? Something you might not know about me blog reader is that I REALLY suck at french braids on myself, but this look is actually super easy. A bunch of the girls at fashion week requested a hair tutorial, so I’m curious would you be interested? Tweet me @shortpresents or comment below, and I’ll put it together!
