// 80%20 SHOES = 100% PURE LOVE //

This past week I have been the guest blogger for NYC-based shoe brand 80%20. 80%20 shoes have been around for over 5 years, appealing to mobile, fashion-forward urbanites. During this past New York Fashion Week, I have been heading to all the parties, presentations, and shows in my very own pair of 80%20 shoes (the Nory, Small Giraffe shoe, as featured above) to write for the 80%20 Shoes Blog. Check out all of my Fashion Week coverage including photos from the hottest runway shows to the trendiest parties on their blog!


Here is a video of my good friend Izzy from The Dandy Project blog and myself at the AOL Videobooth in the Media Lounge at Lincoln Center, right after the Argentina Group show.

Big shout out to Pablo Ramirez - He closed the Argentina Group show with a bang thanks to those wicked Cat-In-The-Hat meets Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's black hats.

// New York Fashion Week SS011 //

Shit has hit the fan. 
Today is the first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. 
Forget Bryant Park. Think "LINCOLN CENTER" aka PPPZ aka pennypoppinpartyzone.
'Cause that is the NYFW HQ for this season.

Fashion Week madness already stepped in last week as I just finished writing a fall trend report for the Ladies Lotto blog ( Last minute invites to parties and shows are still coming [Oh, HELLO RICHIE RICH + Anna Sui - STILL WAITING FOR MY CONFIRMATION!!?!]. Myself and the rest of a motley crew of fashion misfits known as "THE WOLFPACK" [me aptly being named "JewWolf"] are all cc'd on a massive e-mail chain-link with the latest up-and-up of all things and events that are NYFW + FNO [Fashion's Night Out NYC - Friday, September 10, 2010] related. 

Oh, and did I mention I started a new (paid) internship at a really cool advertising and branding agency? Yup. On Tuesday. 
Talk about it. 
I dare ya.

So, I have already been taking photos yesterday on the street in Soho + at the BB Dakota party last night at Chloe. Last night was also the StyleLikeU party at BlindBarber where I got to enjoy a delish Gin + Tonic thanks to one of the cute bartenders there and good ol' Hendrick's Gin.

Unfortunately, I will have very remote access to a computer the next few days so bare with me!

Shows I got confirmed for:
Manuel de la Cruz
Concept Korea
Althea Harper
Sinister Collection
Bijules Collection
Kimberly Taylor

Parties going/gone to:
BB Dakota
Rouge 58
Bijules Collection
FNO Soho Grand Party
Opening Ceremony Parisian Flea Market for FNO
Velita FNO
Nycked presents "Dip Into Cool"
HUE Leggings Broadway event
and others...

Ok. I already feel like I am loosing my mind looking at my calendar for all the events and things I've been invited to this week. Ahhh. I miss paper invites!

If you see me around, say hello! Maybe I will snap you and make you e-famous. 

What will I look like/be wearing? 
Well, you also mean what is the fall trend for me this year? "ANTI-FASCION" 
Grunge. Flannel. Combat Boots. Doc Martens [would only live in Doc Martens if I had the money to afford them - I can't even buy one pair 'cause imma broke!] Palladiums are also garnering some of my interest too.
Bike shorts. Red socks. Bar/Bat Mitzvah party accessories from the 90s/early 00s.


Peace, Love, + Fucking believe,
Susie G
