(Dress: Isabel Marant, Shoes: Sam Edelman)
I am going to attempt to do this post step by step, considering it was such an amazing experience and I don’t know how to put it all into one large story. Edit New York was kind enough to invite me up to their store on lexington between 90th and 91st. I have never ventured so far uptown, but for Isabel and Proenza – I’m in the next cab! I walked into the store and was greeted by Fallon and fellow blogger friend Leandra (Manrepeller). My first try on was this cozy fall Isabel Marant dress that I can not wait to live in. I love everything Isabel Marant, I would buy a cup if it was designed by her. I honestly believe she really gets the every day chic girl and anything of hers you put on makes you look ten times cooler.

Next piece I tried on was this stunning rich chocolate brown Proenza dress. I fell in love with it the moment I put it on. I couldn’t help but picture how adorably chic it would be with black tights, booties, and my black hat. A perfect fall go to. I still can’t believe it’s mine.
Leandra and I spent most of the time playing dress up and fooling around with all the accessories. We had a hard time choosing which we were each going to take home, considering I needed this Isabel Marant plaid shirt she took, and vice versa with the Proenza dress.

Then I laid eyes on these bad boys. Really hard to not go with a classic black suede bootie for fall – especially with a heel like this. I really need to relax with the highest of heels – my body is slowly falling apart from them.
To top off the entire experience, we each had this smart car for one day during fashion week to drive us around from show to show. It truly saved my life, and my bank account. Going back and forth to Lincoln Center is the only annoyance of fashion week, so this was a serious perk. Not to mention, the driver Ash was the coolest guy ever. I can’t wait for my next trip to Edit because I have already been checking the website every day for new pieces that I must add to my wardrobe.
