NYFW or Disney? Where do dreams come true?

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future…. this is known as Fashion Week.”

-Carrie Bradshaw

Where do you go to meet your favourite characters?

NYFW or Disney?

Where do you go to dress up?

NYFW or Disney?

Where do you go eat tons of yummy foods?

NYFW or Disney?

If you answered “both” or “either/or” you are correct!

I have been to New York several times; I had never been to Fashion Week though! When my fellow Style Collective sister’s started talking about meeting up I knew I had to be part of it.


There is one major difference between New York Fashion Week and Disney: the food you eat during NYFW might be a yummy NYC eatery but the time between meals is longgggg or even only happens once a day vs. every five minutes at Disney.


However, for both you get to dress up all you want and meet tons of amazing characters- animated or Instagram ones come to life!




The best parts of Fashion Week?

1: The Shows.


I was so lucky to get to sit front row at several shows, what a rush! It is so neat to see how the clothes move and the textures up close. I will say the models are just as gorgeous in real life!

2: The People.

NYC is always good for people watching, however, twice a year people from all over come out and pull out the very best of their wardrobes. Check out some awesome round-ups of all the style:

3: The Events.

I got to attend the Shopstyle #sssocialhouse and it was spectacular! So much free loot, champagne, and delicious food. I also attended an event by Lulus which exceeded every possible expectation I had about NYFW events!

I way overpacked for the days I was there and some things I wasn’t able to live without- and others I wish I had!


energy bars, external power bank, Sole Serum


faux fur coat

(It was 110 degrees and 110% humidity…..)

Did you go to NYFW or are you planning on going in the future? I’d love to hear your tales or plans. Happy Friday babes!
