This has easily become my favorite post-fashion week round-up. Sure, I like to embarrass myself by pointing out how many times I tripped over myself backstage and how much money I spent on cab rides and manicures (which by the way this season was at an all-time high), but I thoroughly enjoy sharing with you all the cool/OMG/LOL/ridiculous observations from fashion week. MAC also provided me with a super fun fact sheet on all things beauty/backstage so I included a few of those as well. Enjoy!
7: Pairs of shoes I packed with me for fashion week.
3: Pairs of shoes I actually wore during fashion week (I know, I overpacked).
5: The number of pounds my makeup bag weighed. I kid you not. What’s worse is that I forgot my red lipstick… so I went to Sephora and bought NARS in Jungle Red.
0: The number of times I was mistaken for a model backstage.
17: The number of cabs I took to get around the city all weekend.
4: The number of hours MAC artists sleep per night, on average, during New York Fashion Week.
13: Number of shows I had planned to cover during fashion week.
8: Number of shows I actually covered (notice a trend?)
50+: Number of makeup and hair tips I learned backstage (and will share with you soon!)
800: Amount of lashes ordered for MAC artist’ kit.
20: The number of dollars I paid for a signature mani at TenOverTen (I know what you’re thinking… $20… WTF. But I made it worth my while by picking a Chanel polish and the mani did last me a solid five days).
6: The number of Kefir yogurt popsicles I ate between shows at Lincoln Center (they were surprisingly really addicting).
2: Number of times I tripped backstage at the shows. (One of them of course happened while E! Fashion Police was filming at Cushnie et Ochs and I happened to be in the background…)
0: Number of blisters I endured during fashion week. (I know, I am so proud of myself for packing a pair of flats in my bag between shows and applying Sole Goddess).
1: The number of vodka popsicles I had at the Alice + Olivia presentation. It was really good but sadly, hard to juggle with my cocktail and phone.
2: Number of hotels I checked-in to during my stay. The first one was decent, the second was like a tiny palace (king bed, separate living room, flat screen TV, amazing view of the city). Needless to say, it was hard to say goodbye.
So sorry we never ran into each other! I love this round up! Congrats on the new blister and I would LOVE to know about the hotel – always looking for a good one. Hopefully next year we can connect for a drink or hopefully before 🙂
I know! Sad we didn’t get to meet! Email me and I’ll tell you about the hotel! xo
This is such a fun round up!! I’m superbly jealous of you attending fashion week. Just came across your blog, and I love it already! 🙂
loved sharing that palace hotel with you! xx
Had so much fun with you!
