I’m testing out the Nokia Windows phone with HD camera and video quality. It makes capturing quick images and video possible anywhere. The larger screen also makes it easy to see my daily schedule.
iPhone charger: This is one of the biggest survival tips for Fashion Week and beyond. From a dead battery, this plugs into the base of my phone and charges it to almost a full battery again. Goodbye asking to borrow someone’s charger.
Ray Ban Foldable Wayfarers: I live in these. They are timeless and still stand out against the sea of sunglass trends spotted daily. These fold down into the size of a credit card, making them super easy to pack into even the teeniest clutches, especially if going from day to night.
My new Gucci horsebit bag: It’s my first lady like structured bag that’s large enough to carry everything listed here, including my large Nikon camera. Plus it goes with practically anything.
Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets: My holy grail beauty fix. If you have an oily T-zone like me, this removes it instantly for hours and with zero powder residue. It’s significantly smaller than a powder compact and easier to use. I buy 3 or 4 packs and spread them out over several bags.
MAC bright lipsticks in Show Orchid & Lady Danger: When I’m in a rush, a slick of pop colour from either of these is enough to instantly get me out the door. Both are matte, which makes them last for hours so I don’t have to think about touch-ups. Tip: Blot with a single ply tissue and re-apply for extra staying power.
Nine West heels: Every girl needs that one pair of heels that is comfortable, especially during NYFW. These are mine. The heel and arch is high enough to still be sexy but the cut, soft suede and peep toe make them super comfy.
Bright flats: If all else fails and I just can’t wear heels anymore, I’ll swap them out for flats like these. They have a cool shape so I don’t feel like I’m compromising style for comfort. The colours are the perfect accent to anything I happen to be wearing.
Zico coconut water: It’s easy for me to forget to stay hydrated when going from show to show or shooting street style. I carry one of these as an alternative to plain water. Bonus: It has more potassium in it than 1 banana so it helps to keep me going longer than simple water alone.
