My birthday was on September 15th and I’m just now getting around to posting about it! It’s still September, so I still count it as my birthday. Where are my cupcakes?

Kim flew in the night before my birthday; she’s going to be living with Bobby and me for a few months. We woke up early and went to Bryant Park. Kim ate up all of the attention – the minute you walk in the tent, everyone wants to take your photo and interview you. Personally, I really enjoy all of the free stuff. Free mochas and diet cokes? That’s my dream! p.s. She actually described her personal style (in an interview) as “colorful, girly, tacky.” So funny!

The show was full of understated, very wearable clothing. My favorite pieces were toward the beginning.

Please excuse my messy hair and my extremely rumpled cummerbund and skirt…I have a severe tendency to run late in the mornings and slouch when I’m sitting. I need to work on those things.

One of us always ruins the picture with a silly face! These were the best of the bunch…sad.

Bobby came and met us after the show. He brought me a pretty little rose. What a guy!

The three of us were interviewed on NBC right after this amazing gentleman. Kim found her wardrobe soul mate.

After a day in the city, we headed to Brooklyn Fish Camp. Bobby arranged a surprise dinner with some of my close friends! He also got me a delicious red velvet cake. Did you know I just turned 12?

p.s. My outfit details: vintage double breasted blazer (get used to seeing me in blazers…this weird summer/fall transition is confusing my wardrobe), thrifted silk camisole, vintage cummerbund, Postlapsaria skirt, Target tights and ModCloth shoes.

  5. Cara,

    I received all of my invitations either through my blog or my clothing line. One of the sponsors of Fashion Week, Chambord, extended a couple of invitations while the others were direct. I did miss a few shows, though. Next time I'm going to be more organized.

  6. Keiko, I have faithfully followed your blog for a few years! i love seeing life through your eyes!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me what kind of hair color you use…..shade, etc? I have a similar burnish auburn color but your shade is the stuff of dreams. PLEASE!

  7. Ula – I use a box dye (this is where everyone boos and hisses at me) from Clairol Perfect 10. It's called medium auburn, I think.

    Joelle – the skirt I'm wearing is a sample I made the night before. I'll have more in the near future! I just ordered more of the fabric in other colors.

  8. September 15th is my birthday too! I just bought the Keiko Lynn dress on ModCloth and now I can hardly keep myself from going through your whole blog! You are oh-so-lovely.
