Life is about choices, right? So when I was planning my Fashion Month, there was only one other city I allowed myself to pick apart from New York. This was for the simple reason that I don’t want to be away from James and Stella for too long, too often. It’s the working mommy struggle I – and I’m sure many of you – deal with over and over again.
I believe I give my kids a great example by being a mother and a business woman. Obviously I’m not judging any mother who decided to be a full-time mother, because for every one of us out there, there’s a “best way” of doing it, and nobody ever should judge any women for this. I’ve been judged by some of my readers… sadly there are still mothers out there who think they know best, and moreover, they think they know how I do it, and they know exactly what to think about that… Well, I let them.
But back to the subject of Fashion Month decisions. So I decided to pick Paris – my all time favorite Fashion Week – next to New York. Of course I would have loved to be in Milan as well, because I believe that style-wise I would “fit in” perfectly fine. Plus, there are some amazing Italian brands that show in Milan, which are on my show-wish-list. Anyway, to celebrate a little bit of Milan, in New York, I’m sharing one of my favorite NYFW looks, where I’m wearing a little “Milan” with me… Can you guess?
