Market Week -Shows and Shoes!

Kelsi, Alex, and I spent the day previewing designer bags, shoes, clothes, and accessories for spring.  Heaven?  Yes.  I have arrived.

The day was amazing, yet tiring.  We wore high heels, which wasn’t too smart, but Alex and I are newbies to this fashion world of market week, and we learned something new!

I wanted to buy EVERYTHING I laid eyes on, and I will have a full report later, but here are a few snaps I quickly took on my phone:

Focus and Transit Trade Shows in the Fashion District of Downtown LA at the California Market Center

Rows and rows and rows of shoes.  Heels, boots, flats, sandals, you name it, they got it.  Heaven.

And the highlight of the day: Jeffrey Campbell SS/11 platform crazy-ass shoes.  Rainbows anyone?

As I was parking my car in the morning Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port walked right in front of me.  LC was wearing her signature over sized black sunglasses and black Chanel Jumbo 2.55 purse; that’s how I KNEW it was her.  :p  The dude at the parking lot rushed me out of my car w no makeup and no jewelry on.  Helllo!! Not OK!  I was so embarrassed to be seen by LC and WP w/0 makeup so I stood downstairs of The Mart and quickly slapped on some powder and mascara.  Whew!

Muchos gracias to Kelsi for taking us around the CMC all day and putting up with our complaining; and by our I mean my.  🙂  NOTE TO SELF: Do not wear heels when doing Downtown LA Kelsi-style.  Kelsi wore a long chiffon champagne colored gown with a ratted up pair of Converse tennis.  I loved it!  She has inspired me to buy another pair of Converse (because I threw away my dirty old pair).  I want the super old skool off white w red rubber racing stripe.  I don’t know if that is even such a thing still…

The day was a huge success and there are SO many more photos and cool links to add.  We got to see some amazing lines and the cutest accessories you can imagine.

Till next time!
