Guide to shopping, reading, recipes, and everything in between
While we are busy organizing lists, RSVP’s and seating charts for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which started yesterday in New York, I have been getting my all-black outfits lined up. With a strict office uniform of “dressy black,” I have accumulated a fair amount of black clothing and accessories over the years. As I discussed in my previous post, I only wear clothes that have pockets and work with a belt. The pockets are to house my phone and travel money, while the belt is to secure a headset. I try to never carry a bag during Fashion Week, especially when we are working at Lincoln Center, because there is limited storage for everyone’s belongings. Invariably one employee gets stuck babysitting all the bags, and if they are back stage with my bag and I am out front, I will have to wait until long after the show is over to get to my next destination. Being that we usually have to be at the next event almost immediately, or back at the office preparing for the next event, I like to be in charge of my own belongings. This season I found the ultimate new accessory! While I am not a lover of “fanny packs,” this Yves Saint Laurent chyc patent-leather belt bag is just what I need. At 5.5 inches wide it is perfect for a cellphone, lipstick, slim wallet and keys. Add in the attached belt…I am good to go!
