NYFW Spring 2013 – What I Wore Day 1

Yesterday was day one of New York Fashion Week and, despite the predicted rain, it was a very hot day in the city. have kindly loaned me some pieces for my Fashion Week adventure.

My first look was a Paul by Paul Smith bramble-print tunic dress which was loose fitting enough to keep me cool on a balmy day.

I styled the dress with a stunning Anton Heunis three-crystal square statement necklace with a chunky chain which isn’t as heavy as it looks.

Copying celebs, I opted for nude Christian Louboutin strappy sandals and a See by Chloe ‘Albane’ leather bowling tote.

    This look is a master class on how to accessorize a dress with a fabulous print. I have come back to look again and again just to drool over that necklace. Happy NYFW — w00t!

  4. Sabrina September 8, 2012 at 09:35 #

    Wow! You look a-ma-zing!

  5. noo September 8, 2012 at 08:45 #

    Amazing as always FC 😀 Love the accessories!

    I don’t think this should be BDotW, but I certainly wouldn’t mind a nod for it because the colour alone against your skin is divine. Not the biggest fan of the bag though – not feeling the colour.

  7. LizLemoooon September 8, 2012 at 07:07 #

    You look gorgeous FC! The necklace and the sandals are my fave pieces but I think maybe a richer coloured bag would be my preference.
    Overall tho I really dig this outfit, it’s practical (lol only in the fashion world are those sandals ‘practical’ haha) but quietly glam and feels effortless.
    Love the hair and I look forward to turning lime green with envy as you document NYFW!

    p.s. Have you ever worn a shorts suit? I think you’d look great in one with those gams of yours!

    You look great! Excited to see what else you have in store for us this week. Thanks in advance for great fashion week coverage! My favorite time of year 🙂

  10. SkirtTheIssue September 8, 2012 at 01:36 #

    Just lovely FC, so pretty! I am so much looking forward to your coverage in the coming weeks (and living vicariously through you!)

    At the risk of being banned from this site forever, and with apologies in advance, I think this is one ridiculous outfit. The necklace doesn’t belong, which is the nicest thing I can say about it. Your tunic is so ill-fitting it looks like you forgot to put on leggings. I really don’t understand why anyone would dress like this.

  12. Sonia September 8, 2012 at 00:40 #

    FC you look AMAZING! That dress complements your skin tone and that necklace is gorgeous.

  13. EmmaWoodhouse September 8, 2012 at 00:25 #

    One of my favorite parts of fashion week is seeing all your fab ensembles. You look so put together here–the colors and styles mesh perfectly. Have a wonderful time!!! I’m there with you in spirit!!! 😀

  14. Pipsqueak September 8, 2012 at 00:03 #

    I love this look totally! It’s stylish and a bit undone, thanks to the loose bun (appears so on picture). Those sandals really elongated your already long legs.

  15. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) September 7, 2012 at 23:18 #

    Divine FC! Hope to bump into you.

    • Fashion Critic September 7, 2012 at 23:20 #

    I love the dress FC! And of course the styling! 🙂

  32. Ade September 7, 2012 at 17:54 #

    I don’t care for the necklace, it feels out of place, everything else is just perfection.

    • tiffany September 7, 2012 at 21:54 #

      +1 – not sure the necklace goes with the accessories or the delicate, water-color-ness of the dress. otherwise, quite nice.

  33. wilwarin September 7, 2012 at 17:40 #

    WOW… woman you rock…

  34. Jones19 September 7, 2012 at 17:28 #

    Are you freaking kidding me? How do you look so stunning all the time? Love the necklace, xo.

  35. Hannah September 7, 2012 at 17:19 #

    I’m swooning over this outfit. The dress is divine on you, and teh accessories are perfect. The bag in particular is divine. Honestly, I really think it should be in the BDOTW poll.
    I hope you’re enjoying fashion week, I always get really excited for your coverage, amazing outfits and your NYFW recap.

  37. mm September 7, 2012 at 17:06 #

  38. jo September 7, 2012 at 16:54 #

    WOW FC! just wow! That proves that nude accessories don’t have to be boring 😉 You look really stunning. Have fun on the rest of the Fashion Week

  39. Noemi September 7, 2012 at 16:53 #

    I love this look from head to toe, even if I don’t know how you can walk with those sandals, which are lovely but don’t seem very comfortable…

  40. anthonella vice September 7, 2012 at 16:52 #

    I visit your site daily, it’s like my daily shot of fashion coffee, love it but i have never posted till now.
    #1. Good to see someone practicing what they preach, you look very modelish and for sure know your fashion, loving the site more now that i know who is the person behind.
    #2. please don’t misunderstand me, but i’m a lil shock to see you’re black(for whatever reason race never register in my mind, but never cross my mind that you’re black, in back of my head i always thought of some white girl from longon), i hope i don’t get misunderstood, it’s not a race issue..
    #3. keep the good work on the site and stay looking fabolous!!

  41. Nora September 7, 2012 at 16:52 #

  48. Yeliz September 7, 2012 at 16:32 #

    Oh my God. You look amazing, FC! Seriously, I’m in love with your look. You styled the dress perfectly unlike some celebs who, if they would wear it, would look like they are wearing a sac.

    BDOTW contender!
