New York State of Mind: fashion vs. the weather

I love dressing up on holiday – it sets the fantasy of holiday life apart from everyday life. You might feel silly wearing street-style-worthy clothes on the school run, but holidays to New York are a chance to let loose and have fun with your wardrobe.

But what do you do when the weather doesn’t cooperate?

Earlier this month, New York Fashion Week was disrupted by snowstorm Nemo. Editors, buyers, and fashionistas struggled through snowdrifts on teetering high heels rather than be seen in “boring”, sensible footwear. I may be a lazybones, but I would pick a pair of flat boots over heels in the snow any day!

Fashion blogger Flor de Maria, below, also braved the snow in her amazing Sam Edelman boots – would you, if you were living out the New York fashion fantasy on holiday?
