SHOP THE POST:
For more than 50 years, Century21 has provided the city of Manhattan upwards of 60% (sometimes even more) off of high-end, designer label clothing and accessories. You guys know that I love bargain designer shopping, so that’s why it only made sense to partner with the legendary department store while in New York for New York Fashion Week. Because Century21 carries everything from Fendi and Givenchy handbags, to clothing and shoes from some of my favorite designers like BCBG, Acne, French Connection, Schutz and Isabel Marant, I was able to find some really great pieces to bring with me to “The Big Apple.”
Fashion Week is always a lot of work, but the freezing temperatures added a whole new layer (pun intended) of planning. Tights under your pants (or these leather leggings with a soft, fleece interior lining), a thick pair of gloves, hats and scarves were all necessary. That’s why during Fashion Week in February it’s all about the shoes and the coats and the bags (like this bag from Neiman Marcus, it’s the perfect winter white statement bag), because that’s all anyone will really see anyways. This BCBG Max Azria wool, wrap coat from Century21 was 60% off and really came to my rescue. I had also picked up a few new pairs of heels for Fashion Week, including these lace up Schutz pumps in a gorgeous nude color and a pair of dusty pink, strappy Acne Studios heels which sadly never made an appearance because I didn’t want to loose any toes.
