In just a few short hours, I board my first flight towards New York City, and start my second adventure at New York Fashion Week.  I’ve finished packing, and my suitcase is filled to the brim. I sure hope my dear friend Josh won’t mind my taking over his room with sequins and perfume for the next nine days… because that just might happen!  Here’s a little glimpse into my suitcase…

{Lace, brocade, and sequins are taking up a lot of room in my suitcase- and my heart!}

{Statement shoes to pair with my LBDs – studs from Zara and glitter from H&M}

{Technology!!  So excited that I have an iPad to bring along – it will make blogging updates throughout the week so much easier!}

I’m so thrilled about this trip – I doubt I’ll be able to sleep tonight from all the excitement!!  After a few days of catching up with friends, family and beautiful NYC, I’ll become a busy bee – rushing between the Independent Fashion Blogger Conference, the Lucky Fashion and Beauty Blogger Conference, Fashion’s Night Out, Blogger Night Out, and even a private film screening!!  I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have this opportunity – and I hope you’ll come along for the ride with me!

Follow my every move via Twitter {@aamarotico} and Instagram {sheisred} – and stay tuned here on the blog for a fab upcoming giveaway and lots of NYFW goodies.

Thank you so much for your incredible support loves – it means the world.

Love love love, A
