Oh what I wouldn't give to hop on a plane and make my attendee debut at New York Fashion Week this year. Kicking off last week (2/10) the world renown event has been flooding each and every social media platform I check daily and it's DRIVIN ME CRAZAY! And let's not forget London Fashion Week. LFW began just a few hours ago, yet I'm already ogling pics from some of my favorite designers' showcases. Alas, I am sitting here in Seattle, far away from the flashing lights and furry mule slides. From miles and miles away I'll share with you my very favorite NYFW and LFW looks so far. Sit back and enjoy ;)

Now that's a clique I could hang with. Image by Getty Images

My very first pick is UK designer Charlotte Simone. We all know FLAIR is big this season - and has been goin strong for quite a while! Pins, patches, badges, and FUR bobbles and add-ons. Charlotte Simone's designs are cheeky yet smart - fun yet polished accessories for the kooky yet refined lady. And LOOK at those Adidas colab sneakers. Help me. CS just launched a line of outerwear and I can't get enough.

My next pick is the Outdoor Voices X APC Colab. You know by now that we love New York lifestyle/gear brand OV. And with an already strong obsession for French label APC, the marriage of the two is almost too much for me to handle.

Brother Vellies -a true dreamland. Image by BFA.com

THIS. COLLECTION'S. STYLING. Have you heard of Brother Vellies yet?! African artisan inspired and crafted footwear from Toronto designer Aurora James. Socially responsible and so, so beautiful. Natural, organic influence meets mod cool.

Sadie Williams collection is 70's/sportswear meets future/space. Sounds pretty good, amirite?

Typical Freaks is the best. Graphic, raver, throwback, and a little bit punk rock, DIY. The ever popular neoprene jacket vibe gets a chenille-like patch update.

Mmm comfy. Image by Vogue.co.uk

Caitlin Charles-Jones blends comfy and graphic with adventurous silhouettes. Perfect for playing with proportion and mixing/matching. The tones and textures are beautiful!

Glam and sporty by Public School. Yes, please. Image by Harpers Bazaar

My last two picks combine serene luxury with a sportswear twist. I think I have a theme going here? Dreamy silks and shiny, delicate details combined with flowy, causual, yet sophstacted shapes. Take a gander at Public School and Calvin Klein's icy chill/ fantasy inspired looks.

Look at those details! Good job, CK! So pretty! Image by Harpers Bazaar

Well, that's all folks! Hope you've enjoyed my (very brief, in the grand scheme of things) roundup. Let us know your FW faves! We can long in fashion envy/solidarity.  And until I can actually attend (ANY) Fashion Week one day, I'll just keep dreaming/social media/ internet stalking/drooling

Happy weekend!
