Every season I follow along with New York Fashion Week from afar! I hope to go next season, but for now I really enjoy watching the shows online and following along on social media. Lately I’ve been thinking about what I would bring along with me for New York Fashion Week if I was there so that I would be red carpet ready. The items that help me feel red carpet ready are also the same items that I use whenever I have a local event to attend, or event a wedding to go to. Here are my essentials:
1. Comfortable shoes: Whenever I have an event to go to, I always make sure that I wear comfortable shoes. There’s nothing worse than standing in uncomfortable shoes for hours, and New York Fashion Week would be no exception. I really love these nude pumps because the heel isn’t too high, and I’m able to stand in them for a long period of time without any pain. I always carry some band-aids with me though just in case.
2. Clutch: When going to an event, I never want to bring along a large tote bag. I always prefer to bring along a clutch with me because it’s easier to carry around, and what’s better than a sequin clutch?! This one would be perfect for New York Fashion Week, and for any local event that I’m attending. I love all of the colors and the sparkle!
3. Statement earrings: I really love tassel earrings right now,
and I especially love this metallic pair! It adds something special to
any outfit, and it’s definitely perfect to feel red carpet ready.
4. Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths with CleanRipple® Texture:
This might be TMI, but these would definitely be a great
product to bring along to New York Fashion Week so that I feel fresh and
great in my favorite outfits. Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture
clean so you can feel confident enough to strut your stuff, whether down
the runway, the red carpet or the city streets. Cottonelle® with
CleanRipple® Texture is designed to clean better, so you’re clean &
confident enough to go commando if you want to.
5. Dark eye shadow: Whenever I’m dressing up for a special occasion, I love taking my makeup to the next level. For this, a smokey eye is really fun to do, or I love a dark brown eye shadow like this color here to add some drama.
6. Red lipstick: Red lipstick instantly turns your look into glam. I know that when I have an event to go to or when I attend New York Fashion Week, I’ll definitely be wearing red lipstick. I love the one pictured here because it is matte and the color is really bold.
7. Mascara: Mascara is the number one product that I couldn’t live without, and it’s definitely necessary to be red carpet ready! I love a mascara that both lengthens my lashes and gives me volume like this one does.You can always use false eye lashes instead if you prefer.
