I didn’t hesitate when Niki offered up her invites to Saturday’s fashion shows, as she fangirled, I mean reported, on Sidney Crosby. I buckled up my Coach leather boots and hit the treacherously cobbled streets of the Meat Packing district in the adorably named, un-adorable snowstorm Nemo that had hit New York the night before. First stop, Rebecca Taylor.
I’m unable to add much insight to the Fall collection, other than to say I wanted everything in the entire show, including the warmer weather that comes with my favourite season. Refinery 29 does a better job. But the oxblood blazers, peplum shirts, cargo-inspired pants and leather-detailed jackets were prêt-for-me-to-porter. Immediately.

As fashionistas fought over cabs in the perilous Meat Packing, I was one brick away from a sprained ankle but managed to hail my way down to Lincoln Center just in time for Mara Hoffman.
The theme of her show was “Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves.” Unless I’m in search of an immigration husband, I generally avoid tramp-inspired apparel, but Hoffman’s colourful prints and flowing dresses left me ever so excited for the upcoming resort wear opportunities of Spring Break 2013.
