Fab's Going To Fashion Week! My Style Survival Kit

Fab's Going To Fashion Week! My Style Survival Kit

The countdown to New York Fashion week has officially begun! So obviously I'm super excited. What's more, Fab will be a guest blogger on ELLE.com! For real. This is big time ladies - and you'll have to check me out over there! While some of you are helping to conjure up some fabulous looks for me, I thought I could enlist your help in more pre-fashion week preparedness.

I have been gathering some survival items the past couple weeks and I just made a trip to the drugstore to stock up on some more. I thought it would be fun to share but also, let me know if I'm forgetting anything! As for my fashion week wardrobe and packing - stay tuned!

Here's what you see:

  • Adora dark chocolate calcium supplements; healthy and chocolatey snacks!
  • Good 'ol Emergen C (orange flavor).
  • FabSugar Look Book cards to help spread the word and promote Fabarrazi!
  • Band-Aids. Though I'm bringing mostly comfy (cute) shoes, it will be hot & humid and I'll be on the go = prime blister situation.
  • My new leopard print MZ Wallace tote! I wanted something big enough to carry my life around in, but something that would stand out in the sea of fashionistas.
  • My Miu Miu specs. Here's a Fab secret: I'm near-sighted.
  • Band-Aid Blister Block. Can you tell I've suffered from blisters before? They're the worst!
  • Cliff bars, Stride gum, Airborne, YSL lip gloss - all necessary to keep Fab going, and going, and going.
  • My Bottega Veneta business card case/wallet...in my signature color! And a hefty box of FabSugar business cards.
  • Last but not least, facial blotters. Again, signature color (no, I did not plan that).

Aspirin, moleskin (for blister prevention), spot-remover pen, H20, lotion, and I would definitely bring a Trish McEvoy planner insert page (very thin) that can fit in a gloss, powder, blush, and/or a shadow for touch-ups during a long and humid day. The McEvoy inserts are airline approved and are so thin and portable, they are a great fashionista must-have. You might even consider some baby powder to fresh-up with (always nice in humid climate). Can't wait to read your blog for Elle!

hooray congratulations Fab! I will totally be checking you out on Elle.com. I agree with the moleskin preventative measure, and if you plan on wearing hose definitely pack a bottle of clear nail polish. I ALWAYS forget that! Good luck!

1) Take a nice, soft pashmina or wrap for the flight. It gets chilly sometimes and you can't always trust the airplane blankies. 2) Ear plugs or noise reduction headphones. People are loud. 3) Vitamin E Mist from Body Shop. It keeps skin moist and refreshed. 4) Breathmints. Congrats on your awesome opportunity at Elle and NYC Fashion week! :)

Yay for fab! The stain remover pen, wet ones, and bottled water ideas are great. Some hand sanitizer and maybe a travel size toothbrush/paste/floss if you are out for a long day. How about a camera ( or camera phone) to share pics with all us jealous folk.

Moleskin works much better for blisters than band-aids. It is like felt on one side and sticky on the other, works wonders, and you can get it at any drugstore. It is also good as a preventive measure for ouchy shoes and can be cut to any shape or size.

Maybe some Hollywood Fashion Tape...just in case!

here's a great tip I found that really helps with blisters. rub your sensitive areas with lotion before you put on your shoes. Have to reapply if you take off the shoes but carry that suggested hand lotion with you and your good to go. I usually put it on the top of my toe area and the back of my heels. Not the bottom of the feet because that makes it too slippery. I have pretty much done away with blisters with this method.
