It's nearing the end of NYFW and already I am feeling like I can hardly catch a break! I seriously think that I have only had like two actual sit down meals. NYFW has always been the one major week of where one sacrifices all the comforts of life for the sake of fashion. Literally running in heels. This past weekend I took a break from the hustle and bustle of NYFW to check out Glamour's Street Glam pop up experience at Chelsea Market in Manhattan. It was a three-day interactive NYFW styling experience open to the public for consumers to come in and check out some of the most beloved fashion, beauty, and retail brands, all of which work with Glamour. There were free facials being done by Philosophy, a virtual color contact studio from Air Optix, mini makeovers by Maybelline and dry hair styling by Garnier Fructis. Pampering to the max! Plus, there was a whole lot more, including sneak peeks at the latest handbags, watches and shoes. A few of my friends stopped by to check it out, and had a blast playing around with fake tattoos by accessory/handbag brand Follie Follie and discovering the new shoe collaboration between Gilt and Glamour. How amazing is that?
I loved that this event was open to the public, focusing on the more non-exclsuive side of NYFW and making fashion and beauty more accessible too ALL WOMEN. The concept is something I really stand for, so it was awesome to see it come to life here. Just because you weren't actually invited to any fashion shows doesn't mean you can't take part in the festivities.
