today was just full of prettiness. nanette lepore opened up my morning and left a very high standard for the remaining shows. it was exploding with energy and color, making me wish spring wasn’t so far away. on this too-perfect weather of a day, i took a venture down central park west and took a touristy trip to madison avenue to gander at the shops and breathe in the fresh air. after some perusing, back to lincoln center i went, to catch the harper’s bazaar accessory presentation, which was an absolute delight. it opened my knowledge to so many outstanding jewelry makers that are those above-and- beyond innovative types. i enjoyed getting to learn of their stories and the inspiration behind their exquisite creations. some names to check out: lizzie fortunado, prova, anndra neen, and, of course, alexis bittar. milly by michelle smith was up next on my to-do, which i was quite ecstatic about. it was packed out. the collection was rupturing with tomato, green, and navy hues, head wraps, and audacious prints. odd molly arrived shortly after, which was not quite my taste, but fun none-the-less. best surprise of the day: i was lucky enough to get in to anna sui (with the help of mari). what a treat. watching abbey lee walk made my day, not to mention the boho-extravagance of the fabulous conglomeration. safari anyone? final show of the day: mackage. the designer is known for his leather creations, and this year he changed pace with an entire collection of clothes. i am thankful. a big batch of veggies and writing ends my day. the finale is tomorrow!
