NYFW Day 1 – What I Wore Today

It’s Day 1 of New York Fashion Week and I thought I would start of the week dressed as a typical New Yorker wearing all black channeling my inner Downtown Girl.

My friends over at pulled together a capsule collection for me to wear during Fall 2011 Fashion Week.

Today I’m wearing an Alexander Wang layered crepe shirt dress, with a black Rick Owens winged leather jacket paired with tights (mandatory in this weather) and animal print Christian Louboutin pumps, which will be swapped out for more comfortable shoes at some point today I’m sure.

I will be carrying a Sara Berman Cici embellished convertible leather bag which will house my iPad, flip camera, my Nikon camera and notepad.

The look was taken from’s Dress Me page.

Today I’m a Downtown Girl; tomorrow I could be dressed for a First Date.

It’s the perfect way to pull together a head-to-toe look.

My schedule is super packed today I’ll be going to see Porter Grey, BCBG Max Azria, Victor de Souza, Wes Gordon, Mara Hoffman, Z Spoke, Christian Siriano and Irina Shabayeva.

    Cute outfit. Love the Louboutins. They add a pop to the whole look. And I totally understand the need to wear tights. Weather where I’m at (the Midwest) feels like were in Alaska.

    Differences between Catherine and Jennifer Aniston’s black looks:
    1) 1 posted not 100 000 photografed;
    2) amazing animal print shoes;
    3) so after 1) and 2)…not boring/predictable;
    4) event appropriate.

    πŸ™‚ hihi just my opinion…

    • Fashion Critic February 10, 2011 at 17:40 #

  22. Sarah February 10, 2011 at 16:41 #

    Why are you wearing black tights hmmmm?

    • Fashion Critic February 10, 2011 at 16:49 #

      Because it’s bitterly cold in New York and I’m not a celebrity being driven around in a limo.

  23. robbie February 10, 2011 at 16:40 #

    absolutely gorgeous! the whole look is fabulous, but DAMN i wish i had your legs! so long and toned.

  24. Betty Brandenburg February 10, 2011 at 16:31 #

    You look cute in that outfit… but seriously: you expect folks on the red carpet to NOT wear tights even in winter, but then you do? Not fair πŸ™‚ Or is your excuse that you’re not on the red carpet? πŸ˜‰

  25. Hisadora February 10, 2011 at 16:28 #

    love it!!!!!!!!!!! you look so cool and comfortable, the shoes were perfect for this look!

  26. Camilla February 10, 2011 at 16:20 #

  35. mol February 10, 2011 at 15:30 #

    You look so very chic! I adore your jacket, the tapered sides and fit, so good.

  36. staramour February 10, 2011 at 15:27 #

    From Runway to Sidewalk… featuring the one and only FC herself! You look great from head to toe – OK – especially toes πŸ™‚ THIS is how to wear black tights!

    How is this look different compared to Jennifer Aniston’s looks, which you always say is super boring?

    LBD – check
    Black jacket – check
    Black leggings – check

    • robbie February 10, 2011 at 17:29 #

      jennifer aniston is red carpet looks, FC is wearing a casual everyday look. she has said alot that she doesnt mind the likes of black tights whilst shopping just she doesnt like them on the red carpet.
