PFW Day 2: Team No Sleep

It’s PFW Day 2 and the CINCteam is officially Team No Sleep! If you’ve been keeping up with my snapchats you know my team and I have been going non-stop since our plane hit the ground, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. (If you missed PFW Day 1, click here!) Day 2 was filled with amazing shows, sexy outfits and a killer after party- what more could a girl want?

7AM: Breakfast

Not glamorous at all. This is actually what mornings actually look like. Trying to wake up while eating breakfast (and clearly failing)! Speaking of breakfast it’s 100 percent THE most important part of the day (in general) but especially during fashion week. We spend a good majority of time just running around with a crazy schedule and don’t even have a split second to eat until around 5pm. A lot of you guys have been asking what I eat for breakfast, and this is a typical meal for me. It keeps me full without slowing me down and is super healthy! It’s avocado mixed with diced tomatoes + a chicken egg scramble. I usually mix it all together in a bowl and drink some OJ!

10AM: Chloé Show

The Chloé show is one of my most anticipated shows all year round. There are no words to describe how much I loved this collection. It was made for us Cali girls with the billowy sleeves and easy to wear one piece dresses. Everything was super effortless and there are a few pieces I already know I need to have in my closet!

11AM: Carvan Show

My team and I literally grabbed our stuff and ran to the Tullieries for the Carven show. It was spunky, cool, and had lots of attitude. Although I loved the collection it was the shoes that stole the show for me!

1PM: Fitting & Street Style

We squeezed in a fitting with Ellery and took some snaps of my first outfit of the day immediately after the show. I actually ended up wearing this beautiful Isabel Marant outfit for the most part of the day. I’m obsessed with these red leather pants! We literally walked out of the fitting and found the perfect courtyard with red doors. Paris is seriously the best backdrop to take outfit photos!

2PM: Pierre Hardy Presentation

We stopped by the Pierre Hardy presentation after shooting some street style photos. I’ve always been such a big fan of their unique and graphic shoes and it was exciting to see what was coming for the next season. I already have my eyes on on (take out extra on) a few of them!

4PM: Balmain Show

This was my first Balmain show, so you can only imagine how excited I was to attend. When I walked in I immediately felt like I was in a tropical jungle. I wore a full Balmain look and it was by far the sexiest outfit I’ve ever worn. I wore a sheer mesh bodysuit, a corset mini skirt and threw on an oversized masculine blazer to balance it out. The collection was nothing short of perfection and was everything Balmain stands for… powerful, seductive, and extremely glam.

5PM: Street Style

And of course with an outfit like this… how can you not shoot it? We stopped by a palace to shoot this look. I felt strong, powerful, and of course sexy.


6PM: Barbara Bui Show

The Barbara Bui show was so much fun to attend. From the cool music to the bright colors and patent leather, it was the perfect balance between sexy and sporty!

7PM: La Prarie Skin Caviar Event

You guys might remember my cute little IG video for the La Prairie Skin Caviar cream not too long ago. So of course we stopped by the event to say hello and check out their first ever boutique in Paris! We ate some Caviar while we were at it too. 😉

8PM: L'Oréal Backstage Moment 

I worked on a little project with L’Oréal backstage at the Off- White show. Make sure to watch my snaps (if you haven’t already) to check it out!

8:30PM: Isabel Marant

Attending the Isabel Marant show was a total pinch-me moment. The collection was beautiful and honestly I didn’t want the show to end! Always the epitome of French-girl chic, it was filled with easy-to-wear dresses, high waisted pants and the coolest shoes ever! Plus, when Gigi Hadid opens the show-you know it’s going to be good.

9PM- Off-White Show & Outfit

Honestly, I was so impressed with this collection. It was fresh, young, and original. Mixing feminine and statement tops with the freshest denim. Definitely, a collection that will be a favorite to every street style girl. Obsession to the max! Also at so good to see the support of so many fashion insiders, editors, and celebs for Virgil’s collection. I sat next to my closest friends at the show Aimee and Camila … so blessed to have such great girlfriends in the industry. Although fashion week can be physically exhaustive you can’t help but smile and laugh when you are with your close friends. And a huge thank you to my friends at FWRD for having me!

This was probably one of my favorite outfits that I’ve worn so far from the week. Possibly because it was so comfy and I feel the most confident in wide leg pants. I feel powerful and super tall! Anyways these pants are from Off-White and this top is from Marni. Funny how it looks like a matching set, though!

11PM: Balmain After Party

My team and I ended the night at the Balmain after party. It was such a fun time to let loose and have fun with my girls. Also helps when you have the sparkling Eiffel Tower as your backdrop. We just danced the night away!

So before I fall asleep with another face mask on, I hope you guys enjoyed today’s recap! They’re a lot of work but your amazing feedback keeps me going. If you haven’t seen my PFW Day 1, click here! Have a great weekend and be sure to check back Saturday and Sunday for more Paris Fashion Week madness!
