Hellllooooo fashion lovers! Lisi here from The Beauty File blog, fellow Rosebud and Kristin/Megan worshipper. As we all know, this week is NYFW, when couture runs high and the celebrity & model sightings increase tenfold. On my agenda is: lunch with my fashion bloggerinas {also known as Bonbon Rose Girls & one Ciao Chessa!}, attending the Chris Benz show on Monday and last, but not least, galavanting the streets around Lincoln Center in an outrageous getup to catch a certain street style blogger’s eye- Scott or Garance, call me!! I brainstormed and came up with my six must haves for fashion week.  Feel free to add yours in the comment section or what not.
1. First up: my SLR camera, because if there’s ever a time to break it out…it’s now.  Please see above.
2.  A handbag.  An extremely large, extremely stylish handbag.  The gorgeous one pictured above is by Celine.  The strategy behind wearing fantastic accessories, for me, is to distract from the less than incredible outfit I might be wearing.  Bags, shoes, hair are all key to faking it.  Agree?

3.  A stunning dress.  You never know who you’ll meet at a blogger party, so why not look your best?   Everyone else will…

4.  An iPhone {or Blackberry}: the perfect device for snapping photos and quickly ubertweeting, facebooking or blogging.  I am unapologetically ALWAYS online. Also, a bearded man with a pocket square- because if you don’t catch the street style blogger’s eye, he will.

5.  A really fun, flirty hat.  Just because.
6.  A pair of high, black heels.  Could be boots, booties, leather, patent or suede.  Just have to have them.  And also a pair of flats in my extremely large, extremely stylish handbag.  Because when my feet hurt, my entire body hurts.  Every stylish woman could always use an extra 3-4 inches.

So go, you fabulous things.  Strut your stuff, wherever you are this week.  We’ll be thinking of you and toasting you at lunch  :  )

    This list is great!!! And could/should be a every day type list (well you don’t need to drag a spare dress or hat to the office, but flats to change out of heels for sure!)
