Harper's Bazaar posted this really cute feature on popular fashion bloggers and what their Fashion Week prep secrets are. Well as I'm gearing up for next week's Mercedes Benz Fashion Week craziness as well, I figured I would give a hand at the Q&A. I may not have been featured, but I still have my secrets to share! Here they are...
Three essentials: My Nikon digital camera, my Blackberry & business cards.
Go-to shoes: I haven't found them yet but it looks like the Jeffrey Campbell Litas might be my platform of choice for the week.

Fashion Week partner in crime: Oh, I have so many! Last season my mainstay partners-in-crime were Misha of TheFabChick (love that girl, check out her blog) and Jared Lowe of Lowefactor.com (my brother from another mother!). Two bloggers I adore and constantly went to shows and events with. Nothing like a familiar face under the tents.

Who are you looking forward to seeing? All the amazing editors and stylists I admire but never get to see until Fashion Week. People like June Ambrose who I run into every season. Miss Jay Alexander who is always front row at a Custo show. One of my mentors Zandile Blay who has such a hectic schedule I sometimes don't see her UNTIL fashion week and of course my favorite fashion week celebs like Kelly Rowland, Estelle, Solange and Angela Simmons.

Do you pre-plan your outfits for Fashion Week? Always! I get super flustered if I'm running late to a show because I can't find the perfect statement necklace to top off an outfit.
Favorite spot for last-minute shopping excursions: Forever21! Super cheap and accessible, I can grab a quick top before an after-party and change up my look without breaking the bank.
