I HAVE A THING FOR CACTUS, NAVY & EXTREMELY OVER-SIZED TASSELS

Loving the weather in the bay area, however, what about the weather in New York?

I've been prepping for MBFW and it's been a whirlwind, that's for sure. I've never had to walk [fashionably] in the snow for large amounts of time so I'm not sure how to layer appropriately. This is about as much as I layer besides a coat. Oh, Lord, help me. Although I am very excited to be in New York again, I'm so afraid of the snow and walking in it. I'm a subway gal and I heard it's unbearable to be waiting for the train and it's packed. I'm nervous about that. Homegirl is broke, okay?!

Aside from the cold, I can't wait to be back in the city I fell in love with. I can't wait to meet up with old friends, meet fabulous new ones, and see some of the hottest people roaming the hall of Lincoln Center. The excitement of fashion week is always exciting for me because I love the thrill of running around, going here and there and being slightly stressed. I know, I'm crazy. If you want to find me, I'll be at the Starbucks on Broadway and W. 63rd, writing my articles, furiously. Also, I would love to make some time and meet up with more fabulous people. Thus far, I'm meeting so many great ones since I'll be attending both the Lucky Mag, FABB Conference on the 7th and the  IFB Conference on the 10th but I'd love a day to get together for drinks and/or brunch. Mimosas anyone?

So I'm asking all you lovely East Coasters: What in the world do I pack? AND, how do I fit it all in three suitcases? P.S. I don't own shoe shoes, gloves or ear muffs.
