NYFW diary: Girly girls at Alice + Olivia and sporty girls at Marc by Marc Jacobs

After grabbing a $10 raw vegan green juice (only in New York!) from the Chelsea Market to keep up my strength for all the hustle and bustle, I made my way over to the Alice + Olivia presentation to brush up on what all the girly partygoers will inevitably be wearing come spring. Kourtney Kardashian clearly had the same idea, as I saw the pint-sized reality star surveying the selection. The elaborate faux garden party set the stage for Betty Draper–inspired vintage cropped pants, juicy-hued full skirts, retro square-buckle belts, floral palazzo pants, and heaps of sequins. Feeling extra ladylike, I tried to snag a freebie Butter London manicure at the Aldo Salon Pop-Up Shop but, sadly, the manicurist was on break.

My slightly embarrassing nail beds and I made our way over to Marc Jacobs’ first show of the week for Marc by Marc Jacobs. Thankfully, it was all about sporty tomboy style at the Armory, so I felt my lack of feminine polish was acceptable. All eyes, however, were on the parade of clean geometric lines and powerful pops of kelly green and tangerine. Sleek peplum tops in sporty stripes and navy and a green colour-blocked jumpers went on my shopping list, and I can’t wait to see front-row attendee Elle Fanning sport the adorably chic black bustier/high-waist fuchsia pant jumpsuit combo at her next Hollywood fete.
