Happy Fashion Week!

Today I had a handful of shows on my plate, including BCBG Max Azria:

For the big day I decided to go with my tried and true formula of sass + class in a BCBG Max Azria black long sleeve dress, vintage white jacket, and YSL Tribtoo Platform Pumps:

I threw my Ipad, wallet, and lip gloss into a large snakeskin purse by Cashhimi (www.cashhimi.com) and shielded the rays with Super sunglasses from Blake Scotland (www.blakescotland.com; 62 Clinton Street):

I added a fun necklace from H&M and an Iso ring by AG (copped it on Etsy here).

After twirling for the cameras I dealt with the very real problem of the site being down. Sigh. I did my best to resolve the issue on my Ipad and Iphone.

Don’t I look frustrated? Haha, at any rate, it all worked out in the end. The site is back up to speed. All’s well that ends well.

That does it! What do you think of my Style Diary for Day 1 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week?

  1. That first pic speaks volumes! Love the third to last pic, as well. Looking forward to the rest of your looks :)

  2. I adore your lip color Claire!! you do look uber fab. And I’m finna stalk you for those YSL too, LOL

  3. You look GORGEOUS. Love the simple but tailored look and your lipstick. You also have the most gorgeous complexion! Looking good…can’t wait to see Day 2! *snaps*

  4. FIERCE!! I love how your our outfit looks so effortless and everything complements you and each well. AND those legs?!?!…on the way to gym…for reals.

  5. Everyone pretty much summed it up. You look like the Bomb Diggidy. Claire you look flawless. I love your look. Simple, classy and sexy.

  6. What lipstick are you wearing??? It is the PERFECT shade of purple I have been searching high and low for!

  7. CLAIRE. that first pic? YOU BESTA WERK!!!!! lol. had to get to throw some ghettology in there. AWESOME photo. You look great :-)

  8. Idk about you but Claire I need your workout regimen asap!! I meant to comment on the hottest that are your legs when you were in Essence last month :)

  9. You look fab and you’re working those Trib Toos! The real question is are the comfortable? My mom keeps trying to convince me to splurge on a pair instead of 50 pair of lesser expensive shoes each year, but I’m not convinced of the comfort level.

  10. Hey Hey ! Back from Fashion’s Night out. Had a great time.
    OK, to answer a few questions:
    @Kae the Ipad case is DVF. Love. it.
    @Star I’m going for purple for fall. The color is called Violetta by MAC.
    @Sun.Kissed I am convinced comfortable heels do not exist. Even wedges work your soles at the end of a long day. What I can say is that the Tribtoos have replaced my Louboutins from last season….and the YSL’s are a lot more comfortable. But while I could literally barely walk in my Louboutins, I can get along for a couple hours in the YSL’s. In terms of pain, the Loubies were a 10 and the YSL’s are a 6. Wedge heels would score a bit lower and flats would be at 1. My most comfortable heels are my Stuart Weitzman shoes, though they’re not as dramatic in terms of the heels + platform. xx

  11. You look great and boy would I kill for those legs.

    SN thanks for resolving the sites issues I needed my daily dose of FB.

  12. OMG I loveddddddddddddddddddddd Violetta but since I cant get it anymore I have to wear Up the Amp.

  13. Claire… your legs are sick! Are you still doing the 15 minute workouts in manhattan??? what are they called again??? And the ensemble is fab as well… and your hair looks great in an updo! Work!

  14. Claire…Girl… I need to really work on my legs big time. You inspire me so much. Your Style Diary is one of my favorite features on here. Keep them coming. Love the ensemble.
