A Touch of Luxe

New York Fashion Week: Part 2, AM : Jacks Wife Freida & Vanity Projects

In this post for New York Fashion Week: Part 2 A Touch of Luxe, we look at things to do between the shows for mid-range budgets.

Firstly to fuel up for the long day, grab a quick brunch at hipster cool and celeb fave, Jacks Wife Freda.

Most importantly enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and authentic yet modern New York feel.

After that, head straight to Vanity Projects, where their incredible nail artists can paint literally ANYTHING onto your nails.

Priceless worx of art.

Seriously, we are talking master works of art here! For instance, Picasso, Gustav Klimt and Robert Lichtenstein to name just a few.

However, we recommend going for something typically boujee.

In other words, try Ariana’s latest song lyrics for size or some super on trend snakeskin to kill in the style stakes.

Mid-range hunny’s who like a hip mix of high and low culture in their lives tend to search out goodies that are luxe-yet-affordable.
