Olivia Palermo braves New York's 'Nemo' Blizzard to head to the New York Fashion Week shows wearing bellbottom pants and suit jacket with fur sleeves.
First (yellow) cab off the rank in my efforts to involve contributing Guest Bloggers here on Style Voyeur is homegrown New Yorker, Whitney Chalmers. Whitney will be reporting to us directly from New York Fashion Week and in the coming months has got some great things in store for us on all things NYC. While everyone seems to be freezing their butts off in New York as they brave the harsh winter weather conditions during this years fall fashion season, I can’t help but feel (for once) at a vantage point. Instead of being desperately jealous of those attending the shows in person, we can comfortably sit behind our computer screens watching intently as NYFW passes by and for the first time ever be very very grateful that everyone else is doing the hard work for us.
A big thank you to Whitney who sent these photos through to me amongst the power outages, endless snow and as she navigated her way through blizzard ‘Nemo’ whilst continuously running into Olivia Palermo along the way.
