"I need a coat like this—something functional but also totally statement-making."
"I'm into the Bloomingdale's Medium Canvas Bag for its awesome retro quality!"
"Don't ask me how I went five years at Lucky without ever sporting an army-anorak-inspired jacket, but this one recently came out and made me realize I had to have one right this very minute."
"Ankle boots are so much more comfortable than sandals or heels when you're running around to shows all week. I love the subtle details on this style."
"Instead of a classic red lip, I want to try out the gothy-plum color that was all over the runways last season. This shade from Urban Decay looks perfect."
"This pale Banana Republic top is long enough to wear over leggings and thin enough to keep me from overheating under my new shearling jacket."
"I have so many shows and presentations to run to during Fashion Week that I often don't bother to take off my coat. That's why I love this Balenciaga sweater cape. It looks amazing and will keep me warm."
"I can't live without Korres Plum Lip Butter. It smells good, it looks good, and it feels good. The scent is faintly juicy and summery in a way I find intensely comforting (you need a little comfort when you're fighting your way backstage, or if someone really mean steals your seat). The color is sort of seasonless (good when it's still winter but you're thinking of spring and looking at clothes for fall). And the texture is cushy and totally moisturizing, not matte but also not aggressively glossy. Perfect, in other words."
"I always feel schlep-y during February shows: It's freezing, often snowing, and I usually bundle up in my warmest coat regardless of how less-than-chic it might be. That said, the one thing that seems important to have when you're dressed like the Michelin Man is a stand-out bag. This YSL ombré option is just the thing to perk up a dark winter outfit, and it will transition perfectly into spring."
