Packing for Fashion Week

Guess who is packing for New York Fashion Week in the other room? I snuck in these photos and announced that I'm posting them. Partly because I wanted to put something in the new Fashion Week forum category, but also because the colours are cool and I think Angie's super organized packing process is something to behold.

When I took these photos the outfits were being assembled. It won't be very long before the entire 10 day trip is mapped out in ensembles (contingencies too). It is all informed by and there is nothing written down, anywhere.

BTW, these photos (and others that I take when in NYC) should also appear in the NYFW page:

This post is also published in the youlookfab forum. You can read and reply to it in either place. All replies will appear in both places.

    SO FAB!!! Can't wait to see these outfits in action!

  • Mochi replied 7 years ago

    Squee! The jodhpurs! The double-cloth metro coat! :-) (we are getting somewhat oddly and endearingly familiar with Angie's wardrobe, eh) But of course, the element of magic--lovely, fab Angie herself actually inhabiting them--will be added later.

    Any scoops on the weather down in NY? So far I just hear that it'll be in the 30's, so am keeping fingers and toes crossed for nothing unusual.

    Bon Voyage, Greg and Angie, and I have to tell you the yellow plaid drew me right in to this post!! I love Angie's organized packing and the ensembles. My brother is a lot like Angie and is very organized with his packing. He even has his domestic and international travel lists typed up, complete with his relaxed airline sleepwear. Looking forward to seeing your photos and Angie's posts. Have fun.

    OOH! So inquiring minds want to know - what garments can we see? :)

  • Debbie replied 7 years ago

    I had to log in on my phone to say this is so cool. Hope you have a great time.

  • Meredith1953 replied 7 years ago

    I will be looking forward to seeing pictures of what Angie wears. It's always better than looking at the actual fashion shows! Safe trip!

  • Laura replied 7 years ago

    The jodphur jeans!!
    Yay, Angie, and in your face, Glamour! Ha!

  • lynn replied 7 years ago

    I love a packing post! I would love the luggage all neatly loaded...I'm weird like that. Beautiful outfits!

    (realized what I wrote made no sense. sorry--deleted!)

  • Makrame replied 7 years ago

    This is great! Have a wonderful trip!

    Michelle, I see a lot of happy orange color (orange argyle sweater, orang-ish coat etc.), also some yellow, a grey blazer (I think?).

    The weather in NY is crazy warm this winter - I am in upstate NY and we are going to be in the 30F-40F next week, I believe NYC is going to be warmer. We have sap running in maple trees already from what I hear.

  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    Michelle, we can see yellow plaid pants with what looks like a metallic black jacket, the famous jodhpur jeans paired with a tan-and-white wide-striped sweater and , the fab orange-and-camel argyle sweater paired with a dark gray riding jacket, and what might be an orange topcoat with the tag still on, with an AMAZING sweater or tunic colorblocked in orange, black, and yellow stripes.

    I die.

  • O replied 7 years ago

    Ah, *THOSE* jeans! YAY.

    Btw, this glimpse of Angie's thought process and packing strategy is super-informative. It'll be great to see the final outcomes. Thank you, Secret Agent Greg. You know, of course, these reports are now expected to become regular features?

    Michelle, here is what's on the menu:
    Photo 1: yellow checkered trousers (such vibrant color!) and what looks like ultra fun jacket. I don't remember it from any of Angie Outfit posts (AO), but I might be wrong.
    Photo 2: Famous jodphur jeans and cream turtleneck.
    Photo 3: That spectacular Smythe equestrian jacket featured on the blog recently and the orange argyle jumper that was January's backdrop image.
    Photo 4: red coat (?) and a super fun top/dress in bold red (or orange)/yellow/black color.

    ETA: I see many of us have replied at the same time, I hope you get a good idea. It really promises another bouquet of original and distinctive outfits.

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    Yeahhhh.. The jodphurs are coming to NYC! (happy dance)
    I can't wait to meet you both!

  • lyn* replied 7 years ago

    Wow; what a lot of orange!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Happy colors! No matter what the weather brings, Angie will provide the sunshine. Can't wait to see you all again! Thanks for sharing, Greg.

  • sarah replied 7 years ago

    Greg, you're awesome. I can't WAIT!

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    Nice peek behind the curtain. I have several outfits hanging up, but am also awaiting better weather information. I'm only going for the day and have to be able to hoof it for many hours so it's going to be interesting. I'm happy to see orange.

  • Marley replied 7 years ago

    Ahhh Greg - thank you for snapping these pics! Can't wait to view your photos all week long - its such a treat to have you record it all in pictures for us! Thank you!

  • cobaltblue replied 7 years ago

    Oh! I can't wait for the yellow plaid! And that Dutch orange!

  • MNsara replied 7 years ago

    Thank you, Greg!! Peeking into Angie's wardrobe and planning is too fun.

    I can hardly wait to see these in action (hoping that the weather cooperates!). I can hardly wait to see Angie in the yellow plaid. . . and hope she flaunts those jodphur jeans when Glamour is sure to be there ;-)

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Oh how exciting! I remember that Angie posted daily outfit photos during a past fashion you think? (Am I being greedy?)

  • Debora replied 7 years ago

    OMG, this is so exciting! I can't help but wonder if one of these outfits will be worn for next Saturday's meetup. Thanks for the sneak peek, Greg. I can't wait to meet you and Angie! :)

  • nancylee replied 7 years ago

    This is great, Greg! So fun to see a master at work. Good packing takes a lot of thinking and planning.
