Everything Hurts

Being a stylish spoonie

In the world of New York City bloggers, I'm the odd one out. I didn't start a blog for fashion, food and fun, I don't know how to strike a pose and I definitely don't wear high heels. But that doesn't stop me from representing EH and learning to feel good about looking good with the best of um.

Yesterday I ventured out to ShopStyle's New York Fashion Week event SS Social House, and boy am I glad I did! 

ShopStyle is an awesome site for everything fashion, all in one place. They hosted an event for hundreds of bloggers right here in NYC to kick off the festivities of fashion week happening all throughout the city. I was super excited to be invited and I knew I had to find the perfect thing to wear — something cozy and stylish that I could walk around in for hours.

I chose a beautiful top from Karen Millen that had incredible detail and was light as a feather. I felt like I was wearing a PJ top all day and knew it fit my curves just right. I paired it with a fun soft, knit fringe skirt I bought a while back from Ann Taylor — it's super slimming and body hugging without being too snug. It sat comfortably on my waist and was just the right length for my 5'2'' height. I found a pair of sheer black pantyhose from Calvin Klein that aren't constricting and don't dig in at all — they're seriously one of the few pairs I've ever felt comfortable in. And I wore my new favorite leather sneakers from Coach! They're adorable lace-ups with fun rivets on the toe — I got so many compliments on them and can't wait to keep wearing them this spring!

I loved chatting with all the inspiring influencers at Social House, each with their own unique mission of sharing fashion, design, health tips and spreading self love. Attendees got to borrow clothes from this season's top collections, get their photos taken by an on-site photographer and glam up in the spa lounge. We were treated to delicious banana coconut smoothies, green juices and pink champagne! It was all very dreamy.

We looked through racks organized by the season's style trends, got our hair and nails done by talented stylists from The Glam App, were given beautiful monogramed leather folders from GiGi NY and had our makeup done by healthy beauty brand Credo.

My favorite part was spending time with the amazing ladies behind Enlightened by Bravery and Social Fashionista Beauty! Head on over and check out their blogs/follow them on Insta. Their content is beautiful and so inspiring, and they really are such positive mentors. We spoke all about lifting each other up as women in the business of social media and embracing our missions.

It was great to be able to represent the chronic pain community that I'm so proud to be a part of! Thanks for following along 💜
