Style Diary: Mercedes Benz Spring 2013 Fashion Week Day 1

Hey there Bombers and Bombshells!
This morning I hightailed it over to Lincoln Center to attend the BCBG and Richard Chai shows. Fashion Week is such an exciting time, and Day 1 literally felt like the first day of school for me! I decided to bless the occasion with a schoolgirl inspired outfit, including a 3.1 Phillip Lim KA-POW Comic-Print Sweater and a Milly Delphine flared leather skirt:

Yes, I had my own Style Inspiration to Reality moment! After writing our What to Wear to Fashion Week Style Inspiration, I’d been dreaming of the sweater, so decided to splurge for the first day back at fashion school.

I also decided to try a new hairstyle!

Yesss! I was tired of curling and crimping my dreads and felt I had exhausted all my ‘updo’ options, so opted for no muss, no fuss braids. Don’t worry, my dreads are still under there! The magical hair stylists at Noel New York were able to braid over my hair. I’m excited to have fun with this style and not worry about twisting for all of Fashion Month!
At any rate…Ka-Pow, there you have it!

What do you think of my outfit on day 1?
