Since NYFW is wrapping up I wanted to share a little bit about attending my very first Fashion Week Show in NYC.
I was given the great opportunity by my friend & fellow blogger Amber of Beauty&The Street to work as an intern for a designer by the name of Lois Samuels (pronounced Loy). Lois is a former model and her collection which is called The Vessel. Upon first seeing Lois' collection I was reminded of school uniforms and outfits I seen on women when I visited the Amish country. Although, the pieces are far from my personal style, I truly did appreciate her aesthic; I feel that she designs very sophisticated pieces that are brillant.

The show took place on a Wednesday afternoon. Unfortunately it was a few days after a NYC blizzard so I had to trek downtown through plenty snow to reach the venue at 10 AM sharp.
When I arrived I was greeted by a hairstylist who for some odd reason thought I was a model. I was sooo flattered by this because only in my wildest dreams would I be mistakened for a runway model (I'm only about 5'5). I made my way to find the designer Lois who was busy rushing around & giving everyone orders. Therefore, I jumped right into seating arrangements with the other interns. This didn't last too long when Lois asked me to go around &&& take attendance for all the models. For some reason this was very nerve racking to me. It was bad enough I felt terribly shy around these tall svetle runway beauties and now I had to actually talk to them?! I got over it of course when one of the models was extra friendly to me.
