NYFW recap: The Official Haul of the aw2015 season shows

So, yeah. Fashion Week happened, and I went some places and got some stuff handed to me free of charge. Did I say no? Um.

Let’s move on.

On Day 6, when I should have been slogging to 3 shows, I crashed and went through my stuff.  I didn’t go out that much, but I think I did ok. I mean, nobody’s handing out free magazines and stuff at the supermarket, right? So in that light…BONANAZA!!!

Clothing and clothing related items:

I believe that we have discussed the Tide Fashion Closet with stylist Jennifer Eve on hand to give out clothing mantenance advice? I managed to get one bag of Tide pods (with Febreze!) for every day that I was supposed to be at Lincoln Center. Why? Because chicks need detergent like they need egg sandwiches. I got this tshirt from Planet Zero Motorsports at the NOLCHA Fashion Lounge and this insane brightly patterned Winnie scarf from the incredible Desigual aw2015 show.

Beauty products:

I got a totebag from My Indie Hair at the Nolcha Fashion Lounge. They are all about social media, down to putting their handles on the inside rim of the bag. They were giving out hairspray, but that just gunks up my hair, so I traded that for their Polish #mixitsoft. I got some Bumble & bumble samples from Stylinity at TechStyle Lounge along with a new SK-II Facial Treatment Mask and a tiny bottle of Facial Treatment Essence. Pandora was giving away fashion emergency kits and free photos at Lincoln Center.

Tech stuff:

I got this cotton totebag (yes, another one… so original, right?) at TechStyle Lounge and filled it with new fun tech goodies. Like this most righteous UME Drive Millenium bracelet ($27.99) that I got straight from CEO Clem Harrigan’s pocket. What’s an UME Drive? It’s 8gig of wearable storage- waterproof and everything. No excuse for not having your presentation when you’re wearing it, right?

I also got a self help book called The Love List on a USB stick/keychain and the Stylinity Selfie Stage ($19.99) which is a clear plastic cradle for your smartphone with both adhesive and a suction cup on the back. Basically? Full length selfies just got so much easier.

 Food and Beverages:haul5

Bottles of Smartwater were all they had for free refreshment at Lincoln Center this (the last) season.   No more Diet Coke or Illy Coffee Drinks. No delicious Lifeway Kefir. Just water. I got four and am saving them for no real reason.

Got this All Beauty Water cucumber and aloe drink sweetened by Stevia at the NOLCHA Fashion Lounge. Definitely tasty. The Koa Olakino drink is so confusing that I just don’t really want to drink it. It’s supposed to be juice- but they tool all the color and sugar out so it tastes like water. I’ve had relationships like this, and it’s weird. Why would you make 12 fruits and vegetables taste like water?

SexyPop popcorn and Skinnygirl Sparklers from TechStyle Lounge– basically fake diet snack food. You can make popcorn fresh and customize it to your taste with far fewer additives and calories. The Skinnygirl Sparklers are basically soda and I admit that I guzzled them all because I never drink soda. I felt really bad afterwards because I could have used real fruit juice and a sparkling water to create my own low cal beverage and avoid the 10 calorie per bottle tariff I paid.

Reading material:

They give away free copies of T Magazine, The Daily Front Row and WWD at NYFW. So I try to load up. For rainy days and working in my daybook and getting ideas, they definitely come in handy.
