Day four of New York Fashion Week, day two without any IDs or money. I’m beyond grateful for my Lexus sponsorship because without money, I can’t even take the subway!

Instead of my usual 50-plus-show grind, I’m attending a mere 38 shows (I know that's still a lot, but it frees up much of my time!), and they’re strictly brands I’m interested in. I guess you could say my reviews are different from that of the average fashion critic. I’m driven by my own desires, what I want to wear, and what speaks to me on an emotional level.

Today officially marks the first day of the Year of the Monkey! My son was born in the Year of the Golden Monkey, so I’m naturally biased towards this sign. Monkeys are most creative and intelligent, and they’re also known for being playful, enthusiastic, and highly social. This is the Year of the Red Fire Monkey, and it’s being said anything can happen in 2016, particularly when it comes to personal endeavors. Might I suggest acquiring a new bag as your first personal endeavor of the new year?
