While at New York Fashion Week I took advantage of free time I had to shoot a couple of outfits. First up, one to bring you from summer to fall.
Bold prints can be worn year round, but the end of summer is really the last chance you can make bright florals work with the upcoming elements (at least that’s true if you live in the north East Coast, since if you are Los Angeles and Miami you can wear the print all year round). I styled a blue floral-geo print short sleeve button down from Express with black accessories and a tee to contrast the shirt, but added a pair of cerulean blue slacks to balance the overall look. Along with my accessories like the Frank & Oak canvas and leather backpack and Kenneth Cole leather slip-on kicks, I also show the ultimate fashion week essential; a Mophie juice pack helium battery phone case in a metallic green. Seriously, I sadly would not have survived without from all the shows, events, and street style and backstage coverage I did while at NYFW. See more of the look below:

New York Fashion Week street style is the best to spot out things you can get now. Finishing up my street style coverage from this spring/summer 2015 presentation season, here’s the best bags, sunnies and other accessories I spotted at fashion week:
New York Fashion Week street style is the best to spot out things you can get now. Finishing up my street style coverage from this spring/summer 2015 presentation season, I bring you the best shoes I spotted on the feet of the various editors, bloggers, buyers and models. Make sure to see more Vee Travels street style here, and check out my models style photo set on Details for which I talked to 10 different male models to learn about their footwear game.
I noticed several different style trends men should be using now as we go from summer to fall. Among them, earth tones. See GQ Style Editor Matt Sebra (above), Saks VP and Fashion Director of Menswear Eric Jennings (second), and WWD Fashion Editor and M Magazine Fashion Director Alex Badia (final – make sure to check out his accessory game!) show you how to sport the tones of olive, warm gray and brown this month as we transition into fall: Read the rest of this entry
Men aren’t the only stylish ones wandering during New York Fashion Week. Since I was shooting well dressed Latinas for Latina magazine, I also snapped several stylish women I spotted. Here are my favorites, with Eva Chen from Lucky sporting a smiley face hardshell clutch that I kind of want to put my electronics in for when I travel.
Patrik Ervell’s spring 2015 collection was inspired by interior and industrial design, and features various technical fabrics such as polyurethane and vinyl on bombers, raincoats and shorts. Among the collection was a transparent vinyl rain duffle, a cerulean polyurethane vented macintosh, tourquise metallic polyurethane track pants, a black leather calfskin racing jacket and a watercolor print silk shirt (one of my favorites).
Also for his spring 2015 presentation, Ervell customized Dr. Marten leather strapped clogs to feature nylon straps in different colors. See how they were put together, get a closer look at the clothes and see the backstage moments with the models during hair, makeup and while getting ready for the presentation: Read the rest of this entry
For his upcoming spring collection Billy Reid presented with a runway show at the Refectory in the Highline Hotel, New York once again. I got a chance to be backstage, but first, the clothes.
The spring 2015 collection is said to be built from the concept of easing silhouettes and softening the structure and fabrics of the garments to create a modern, urban take on unstructured soft dressing. This resulted in comfortable outfits with light tailoring for a relaxed-chic looks as show by the above. Patterns played a role of course, as did oversized T-shirts, airy outwear, and long shorts and cropped pants paired tassel loafers, Espadrilles, K-SWISS leather sneakers or other footwear.
I’ll be sharing my favorites from the collection once NYFW wraps up, but in the meantime here’s my photo diary of being backstage at Billy Reid spring 2015. My favorite photo has to be the model selfie I stumbled upon when they were getting ready to rehearse, and possibly also Billy cooling off the models before the show by pressing iced cold cans on their necks. See those, grooming, dressing and more moments below: Read the rest of this entry

Find a mix of the men’s style from editors, buyers, models off-duty, fellow bloggers and other men I found before and after attending shows at Industria Studios for New York Men’s Day, Duckie Brown and Parke & Ronen, the High Line Hotel for Billy Reid, and Richard Chai at the Lincoln Center (and general #NYFW moments).
A couple of the photos below I published on NewNowNext, and more will be online soon at Out, Latina (women and men!) and one more publication that I’m excited to share when it goes live.
