NYC Fall Fashion Week!

Hey yall!!!! Ryan here with some confessions of a shopaholic & new mani in honor of the Mercedes-Benz Fall Fashion Week in NYC! I didn't blog the last 2 manis i did...i think because I just wasnt that proud of them.  But Fashion Week started last week on September 6th & ends this week on September 13th. I am not a super big fashion whore. I never have the trendiest outfits of the season. I dont frequently go shopping for clothes. I don't ever care too much for 'name brands' or think too highly of having the status of wearing designer clothes/shoes/purses.  I never actually dress up because my job is to teach tennis...hence I spend my days in Nike & tennis shoes. BUT that doesn't stop me from appreciating fashion. I have a shoe/heel obsession even though I never wear them. I would love to dress super cute all the time if My Pinterest Closet was real & I could have all my pinned outfits in real life :D For my fashion-inpired mani, I wanted to replicate one of my pinned outfits that I would wear if I were attending Fashion Week! 

I love a good LBD...I am a more curvy/athletic/full-figured girl. I love this dress because it's black, which tends to hide any imperfections. And I love the fit of this dress, higher straight neck line, higher fitted waistline, then it kinda bubbles out with a full skirt to flatter hips & butt. I also love adding some pop with some very classy turquoise jewelry....last but not least, have yall noticed these shoes???? The soles are lined with silver glitter!!!!!!!! What girl doesnt want black stilettos with glitter-covered soles?!?   To replicate this mani, I used OPI "Black Onyx", Essie "Turquoise & Caicos", & Essie "Set In Stones...and what fitting polish names too to go with this fashion-inspired mani! I put Black Onyx on my thumbs, pointer & pinky nails for the dress & handbag. I put Set In Stones on my middle nails to represent the silver glitter heel bottoms.  I put Turquoise & Caicos on the ring fingernails to represent the turquoise jewelry accents. Last I added Black Onyx on the tips of the turquoise nails.  I decided to bust the homemade lightbox out again for these nail pics. Hope you like this fashion look!

Lady Gaga did a song called "Fashion" that was used in the 2009 movie 'Confessions Of A Shopaholic'...i think it goes perfectly with this fashion post!
"...FASHION. Put it all on me. Don't you want to see these clothes on me!?"

Who doesn't love 'the girl in the green scarf'??? I hope everyone's seen this didnt get great ratings but i freakin love Confessions of a Shopaholic! And I LOVE Actress Isla Fisher, and her costar - the hilarious Krysten Ritter, from the badass show 'Dont Trust The B In Apt 23'.  Isla Fisher will also be in another female comedy this Fall called "Bachelorette"! She's the bomb & married to the insane Sacha Baron Cohen. Anywho, hope yall enjoyed this fashion-inspired post! Thanks for stopping by! See yall again soon! Enjoy Fashion Week!
