Mara Hoffman Spring 2016

December 16, 2015
I will be jumping on a flight to me beloved Southern California on Thursday afternoon. The homeland. The heart. hehe. It really is an unconditional love that I have for California. Summer afternoons lounging in my hammock in the backyard devouring book after book. Dog walking my neighbor’s dogs as an excuse to explore the neighborhood and get into trouble. Spying on the neighbors and as a result coming to know too many secrets. The older girl next door telling us everything there is to know about being a woman. Far too much that a 10 year old should know. Telling my mom I was going to my friend’s house when really I was hanging out with skater boys at the abandoned pools of boring suburban backyards. Pretending I could skate, when really I sucked and scraped my skinny knees as a result time and time again. Barefoot more often than not. Kissing messy haired boys behind the movie theater on a Thursday night. But staying out no later than 9pm. I could get in my car on the weekends and head anywhere I wanted. I’d feel like going to San Diego and then I’d be there in a few hours. The days always felt longer. The sun closer. The grass greener. The taste of it all was like a strawberry milkshake. Or a cold Coca Cola. Oh how I pine for those sunny memories sometimes. A lot of times actually. Mara Hoffman‘s S/S 2016 collection reminds me of California. It reminds me of the long road trips my parents would take my sister and I through the desert to Nevada and Arizona. The windows rolled down because of the heat. My head sticking out the side like a fresh pup. But a more grown up, chic version of that, of course. One that lives for rainbows and the desert. That survives off the water of cacti. That takes freeways that have no end in sight . . . a directionless road ahead. This collection can take me anywhere I feel.

And fashion week is officially over for me 🙂 I sort of still can’t feel my feet just like how The Weeknd still can’t feel his face, but it’s totally okay. Because I survived. With Mercedes Benz pulling out of fashion week after last season, everyone was not sure what to expect of this time around. So many questions were being thrown around. Will fashion week ever be the same again? Where will the shows be now? Is anyone even going to care again about fashion week? Well, all of our answers have been answered. And while the photographers might be complaining about all the multiple venues and running around the city chasing down good style, us fashion show attendees are doing quite the opposite. Fashion week was a fresh change for us, thanks so some new environments and neighborhoods that designer’s have decided to show at. Not only that, it felt calm, which is the exact opposite adjective we would use to describe the horde of people waiting outside of Lincoln Center all day and all night. This season, because it wasn’t so central, us fashion goers caught to experience more of the electricity of the city as opposed to just a main show venue or two that can come to feel pretty redundant after a while. Wall Street. 1 World Trade Center. Houston and Washington. 33rd and 9th Ave. Chelsea Piers. It’s fashion! An industry that celebrates change, so it only makes sense that a season like this one would come around, and hopefully will continue to do so more often in the upcoming seasons. My feet are still tired, and I probably stayed up later than I should this past week, but my mind is hungry for more of the beautiful things I was lucky enough to catch going down the runway. I still leave standout shows starry-eyed and dreamy faced, just like I did during my very first fashion week four years ago. It’s hard to shake that feeling. No more cities for me for the rest of this fashion month, but hey, maybe next season 🙂 
So here’s my day two outfit for the shows. Was feeling a little tomboy, and wanted to rest my feet so threw on my favorite sneakers. Lace and overalls can be quite a pair I believe.

I gotta give props to the team who put together this season’s NYFW The Shows. It has been a flawless breeze and I don’t miss Lincoln Center one bit. The milder weather this season might also be making all the difference with my positive mood, but hey, whatever makes me a happy camper. I am still nearing the verge of exhaustion, but my mind is still a whole lot more at ease and I don’t feel like I’m jam packing my schedule like I did in my earlier NYFW days. Instead, I am being selecting with the shows that I choose to attend. And I’ve been making sure to fit in shows that I haven’t been to yet in the past. Discovering new designers and aesthetics is always the most exciting thing about fashion week. 
Day 1 of NYFW was a rainy and gloomy one, but that didn’t stop me from running around in this gorgeously printed VEDA dress that is basically my dream in living form and color. A vibrant, swirly print amplified with a red lip and a fuchsia furry heart on my bag. Unexpected pops of color and combinations are my favorites. Sometimes, it’s in the little things. 
Recaps on my favorite shows to come very, very soon! xo

A long lost NYFW outfit. This shaggy Nicole Miller jacket is quite the statement piece. It needed nothing more than a pair of broken in jeans and a beanie to fight the cold. I normally don’t wear a shade of purple this intense, but it sure was a lot of fun for a day. One eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater. I kept thinking of that song the entire time I was wearing it. Cheers to having fun with fashion and not giving a fuck.
