Whew, you must be winded from all that scrolling. Take a breather and read on.

Fashion Night Out at Saks Fifth Ave was a blast! It was packed with fashionistas and fellow fans of Rebecca Minkoff. The music was blaring and the energy was contagious. From across the room, I saw the tall, brunette designer. This was the moment I had been waiting for. Hesitant in the beginning, my sister nudged me in the right direction and that was all the confidence I needed, it was now or never. I pounced, “uh, hi, I’m Kate…[@]hey_im_kate, I won the uh, Instagram contest…” She looked at me kindly, “Oh, Hi!” Nervously, I quickly asked for a picture and she was more than happy to abide. Before I knew it, I had the picture and I could fly back to SF a happy girl, but not before I Instagrammed my success.

Oh yeah and then there was the actual reason I was there, the Fashion Show. Now this is where I started to feel the heat, literally. Sweat was dripping down my face as we rushed to the Lincoln Center. The mass amount of gorgeous people was intimidating and it was really the who-knows-who’s of fashion. As my sister and I were waiting in line, in front of us was Krystal Bick of This Time Tomorrow. I immediately recognized her military jacket and hot rod Prada heels. I asked for a picture and she introduced me to Samantha from Could I Have That? Not expecting Krystal to engage in conversation, I was caught off guard when she asked about my blog. Blogging still feels so fresh, that I sometimes forget I even own one.

After chasing down my favorite bloggers for pictures and probably making them believe I was their #1 stalker, it all started to sink in that I just saw my first runway show. The atmosphere was something that of a concert, I felt the music through the floor and everyone held up their phones, snapping pictures like they were waving lighters to the beat of the song. The show was exactly how I thought Minkoff would throw a party- full of celebrities, good music and leaving the crowd wanting more. Now, I know runway shows aren’t supposed to be long, but when the lights turned on my sister and I looked at each other and said, “that’s it?” Traveling nearly 3,000 miles for three days was entirely worth the ten minute show and the experience that came with it, a big thanks to my mom for funding the trip.

And this is what New York Fashion Week will do to you.
