Starting this week in New York, the fashion industry begins its four-city marathon known as Fashion Month.
Another Fashion Month kicks off this week and designers in New York are scrambling to get their Fall 2014 collections show-ready. They needn't bother. For bloggers, celebrities and sadly, even a few editors, Fashion Week is more of a time to be seen than see the collections.
From final retouches on designs, fittings, castings and set design to the moment the first shoe hits the runway, you get the sense of the industry coming together. All eyes are on New York for the eight days of fashion shows.
They're not as overtly ballsy as his lamb job, and I don't include them on my LinkedIn profile, because who would hire me to do them again? But these tasks scared me senseless and/or made my heart sing. And isn't that what the best jobs are about?
I had always been segregated from people who were different. But look at what is happening in today's society. The younger generations are friends with their classmates who are "different," and even making them prom queens and kings.
I've stood just a smidge over five feet since the seventh grade. And I've felt icky, simply being in the vicinity of tall, slim women for just as long.

After a couple days of late-September rain, Bray grew tired and was seen leaning against the storefront of Michael Kors. She eventually sat down on a standpipe, maintaining a flattering crossed-legs posture into her final moments.
We've seen the good, the bad, the ugly, the forgotten and mostly the unaffordable. What sticks and finds its way to stores is what the editors, buyers and trend setters deem worthy. I'm none of those three, but I've been thinking...about New York, where this all began...
Every day thousands of women ask themselves that question when their feet start hurting. Is it my shoes or is it my feet?
Talent coupled with the right backing and support provides an undeniably successful result. During New York Fashion Week two of the most promising designers showed under the Harlem's Fashion Row umbrella.
I've never heard so much negativity around New York Fashion Week before. But you know what, I love it and here are the A-Zs of my #NYFW...
A conversation with the oh-so handsome and incredibly charming Nigel Barker reveals layers of a man who views the world on a tweaked lens and captures moments by the milliseconds that last a lifetime.
Having been in NYC just a few weeks ago, I did not tritz over to the City as street-style wannabe; I had neither time nor inclination to forge my print presence in that way.
Though I am not a complete tomboy, I definitely am not the first person to go running to a fashion show. Yet, somehow I recently got invited to a show during NY's Fashion Week. Out of extreme curiosity, my mom and I decided to go.
I've been attending Fashion Week in some form or another since I was about 12, but I've always done so as somewhat of an outsider. It started with my mother, then a prominent stylist, who would take me as her plus one to a show whenever possible.
