Not Paris Fashion Week

You might be wondering why I have yet to post about the activities going down in my favorite city ev-or and this is why: It's 7 am, I am trying to work on my thesis, while also studying for a quiz on an irrelevant matter to my life, and you know, just being me. This entails that, besides my highly and easily distracted nature, I find out about the two papers and midterm I have due in a few short days, just yesterday. Ah, the life of a college student. Or is this just me?


Whatever it may be, it is certainly not hashtag PFW. Because my recap of the shows won't be published till the end of the week (hopefully), I figured why not share with you some of my favorite Instagram accounts covering all the fabulousity straight from Parigi? Good idea, no?

Beginning with my favorite bloggers Leandra Medine (@manrepeller), Natalie Joos (@jxxsy), and Chiara Ferragni (@chiaraferragni):
Who doesn't want to see what these frequent front-rowers are wearing and doing while roaming the streets of Paris?

I guess Derek Blasberg (@derekblasberg) falls under the blogger category as well, but he is way more than that. 
Editor extraordinaire and friends with every single model slash IT girl in the industry, there is never a dull moment on his insta-feed. Never, I tell ya.

Speaking of models, I thoroughly enjoy Caroline Brasch's (@caroline_brasch) account. Gurl has got swag.
.... And is gorgeous, duh.

As a former wholesale intern, I get just as much a kick out of all the behind the scenes madness as the actual shows themselves. You can't even imagine everything that goes on prior to, during, and after a new collection reveals itself, which is why following my favorite buyers is great. It's an awesome peek into what really goes down during those showroom appointments and I love seeing what they're buying in to for the following season. Some of my favorites include Taylor Tomasi Hill (@ttomasihill and @modaoperandi), Lori Hirshleifer (@hirshleifers and @lorihirshleifer), Claire Distenfeld (@claire_fivestory), and Laure Heriard Dubreuil (@thewebstermiami).

Ugh, I miss being a part of market week madness -- filling out linesheets, running after models, assisting in lookbook shoots... all that good stuff.

And last but certainly not least, my favorite foreigners: Anna dello Russo (@anna_dello_russo), Gio Battaglia (@bat_gio), Lena Perminova (@lenaperminova), and Miroslava Duma (@miraduma):

Do I even need to tell you why I love them? More to follow soon! Xx
