Sister, Sister






This was Amanda's first time at New York Fashion Week. I was a little bummed because I only got a couple of invitations to shows at the tents - and they were for the day before and the day after she was here. Although that didn't quite work out (we went to several shows and previews off-site), I was able to bring her to the tents (in the AmEx skybox, no less!) for an IFB hosted Q&A session with Fern Mallis, the Vice President of IMG and creator of NYFW. You can read more about the tweetup with Fern Mallis here. Big thank you to the amazing Jennine for inviting us (and for creating IFB in general, which is the lifeline of fashion blogs).





Amanda let me dress her in my own clothes, which was a ton of fun. We have completely different styles but were able to come to an agreement on this ensemble. I wish we would have gotten pictures of it without the load of things in her arm (and without the coat) but it was cold and we were in a hurry all day.

Amanda's outfit details:
1950s dress (underneath) - Beacon's Closet (I think? I can't even remember)
Early 1960s coat - Beacon's Closet
bow belt - thrifted
tights and shoes - hers
gloves - Hourglass Consignment (our mom's store)
bag - Coach
scarf - gift from my mom




These glasses were a lifesaver. My eyes were burning from the cold wind but sunglasses made the bleak day too dark. I allowed myself to wear them twice but then I just sucked it up and dealt with watery, burning eyes for the rest of the week. I should have bought goggles.

My outfit details:
blazer - thrifted
vintage slip
vintage 50s cardigan and gloves - gift from my mom
skirt - handmade, Postlapsaria
belt - Beacon's closet
tights - courtesy of We Love Colors
bag - courtesy of Coach
Blimey shoes - courtesy of Seychelles

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  1. Really liking your sister's eye makeup. Your outfit is super cute too, but weren't you cold?? I hear the east coast is under another blanket of snow again!

    And I think you should bring goggles back. If they ever were... in.

  11. Although there is a night and day difference between you two in certain profiles it becomes very prominent that you two are sisters. Looking very pretty ladies. the glasses bring out another side of your personality I think.

    Love

  14. Do you know if the tights are the nylon/lycra microfiber solid tights of just the nylon/lycra ones? I want to order some from We Love Colors but I want to make sure they are thick enough. :)
