A Little Fashion Week Inspiration

I wasn't lucky enough to be in NYC this week, but I have been following along via Twitter and Instagram very closely.
My outfit today is an inspiration of some things I saw trending at Fashion Week.
It seems like fishtail braids were everywhere. 
 I am not one of those lucky souls with thick beautiful hair,
 but I can weave a fishtail.
Sheer fabrics, polka dots along with many other patterns were also seen on the runways.
 Collars were a big point of focus as well.
 There were jewelry collars (like mine), sequin collars, peter pan collars and the list goes on.
The lesson here is: 
even if you can't afford runway fashion, 
you can incorporate a bit of it into your wardrobe without breaking the bank.

What was your favorite look on the runway this week?

PS...you can find me over on Coming Unstitched today.
Thanks, Sarah!

Great look and I have trouble with fishtail braids, but I'm working on it! I haven't really had the chance to check out everything from the runways, but I love the Peter Pan collar trends I'm seeing.

I think I may be one of the few fashion bloggers who doesn't follow along with NY fashion week so that's why I rely on bloggers like you! I just love the sheer blouse and the collar necklace- definitely pieces I will be wearing!
