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 theOutnet.com 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 theOutnet.com’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.

  9. Lux February 10, 2011 at 14:45 #

    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.

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

        Thanks Robbie.

  10. D February 10, 2011 at 14:47 #

  12. houbi February 10, 2011 at 14:56 #

  15. 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 :) THIS is how to wear black tights!

    I hope you enjoy NYC and all the shows.

    PS – Post Christian Siriano as soon as you can. :)

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

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

  17. Matt February 10, 2011 at 15:39 #

    You wanna bet you will get mistaken for a model today because you look like one. Enjoy your day.

  18. Suz February 10, 2011 at 15:41 #

    Cool! Very NYC. FC, I love when you’re in the states, and in a US time zone, so I can see your posts all day! :)

  19. Rebecca February 10, 2011 at 15:44 #

    Looking good FC! Knock ‘em dead!

  20. Vicky February 10, 2011 at 15:47 #

    You look great! What I love about this picture though, is the woman in the background with the big puffy coat on. You have got to be freezing!

  21. Nina February 10, 2011 at 15:48 #

    Wow! You look awsome FC! I like those Louboutin pumps.

  22. noo February 10, 2011 at 15:56 #

    because of all the boring celebs out there i didn’t think that pretty shoes even existed :D :D you look awesome and you restored my faith in shoes!!!

    • Linda February 10, 2011 at 21:22 #

      Yes, the shoes are beyond awesome and the whole look is so very chic. Plus, that gorgeous smile!

  23. Eve February 10, 2011 at 16:09 #

    as we say in Spain DIVINA !

  24. Ally February 10, 2011 at 16:16 #

    Love the shoes. Hope you have a blast and stay warm! :)

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

    I’d love it if it wasn’t for the tights….

    joke!

    • Fashion Critic February 10, 2011 at 16:50 #

      Lol :)

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

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

  27. 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 :-) Or is your excuse that you’re not on the red carpet? ;-)

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. Erik February 10, 2011 at 16:50 #

    So amazing! I can’t wait the you what you’ll wear the rest of the week :D

  31. Aditi February 10, 2011 at 17:05 #

    BDOTW! awesome :)

  32. kim February 10, 2011 at 17:06 #

    you look awesome, i am jealous of your clothes and shoes, VB would be too haha !!

  33. VB Lover February 10, 2011 at 17:10 #

    You are gorgeous! I love the outfit, even the tights!

  34. Barbara February 10, 2011 at 17:19 #

    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.
    :) hihi just my opinion…

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

  43. Laura February 10, 2011 at 17:50 #

    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.

  44. michelle February 10, 2011 at 17:51 #

    you look amazeballs. whycome ( yes whycome) God didn’t bless me with legs like yours?

  51. nahla February 10, 2011 at 19:23 #

    You look like a star

  52. Pascale February 10, 2011 at 19:33 #

    Don’t get me wrong, I love theoutnet… But your post has way too much product placement for my liking. I understand that they’re your friends – or giving you nice discounts ? – but I’m loosing the honesty I usually love about your posts. There is so many fashion blogs like this already ! If I want to know about their capsules, I’ll read their site. That being said, you look amazing !

  53. Badaboum February 10, 2011 at 19:59 #

    Oh my god, you look so pretty! I cannot wait to see what you are goind to wear tomorrow!
    This reminds me of a picture of you that you posted during the last fashion week in Paris, you are posing on the Champ Elysees at night. I remember thinking, why can’t I pull off an outfit like she does?!

    • Badaboum February 10, 2011 at 20:02 #

      Just seen the back of the dress on theoutnet.com website and I love it even more now! And very cute shoes indeed…yes, I am jealous….

  54. sara February 10, 2011 at 20:07 #

    • Fashion Critic February 10, 2011 at 20:53 #

      Yes…I was unwell for a while and I lost my appetite.

      I’m surprised you notice.

      Working to put it all back on again :)

  55. Elena February 10, 2011 at 20:11 #

  57. Hannah February 10, 2011 at 20:33 #

    You look gorgeous! I love the very chic way you have interpreted downtown. I usually hate anything other than black shoes with black tights, but those shoes are gorgeous. I hope you had a first great day of fashion week and I cannot wait for tomorrow’s look!
    P.S. Your legs are beyond!

  58. MReid February 10, 2011 at 21:20 #

    Damn it how long are your legs? Your outfit = hotness and I love that you are running around the NYC looking every bit the fashionista. I wish I could zoom to see the detail on the dress!

    I love the shoes. It helped to break up your all black look.
    I am so jealous. I would love to have gone to see Christian Siriano. Pure drama. Love him.

  67. Roxy February 11, 2011 at 03:18 #

    Work It Girl !! … I am in love with your legs. How tall are you ? Your legs go on for days. I also like how your shoes gives a pop of pattern and color to your monochromatic outfit, very chic.
