Well, Fashion Week is here. If your invitation to sit front row at your favorite shows was lost somewhere in the mail, fear not, you can still enjoy the runway shows in your own home.
Are you sad you won’t get to live Tweet and Instagram the hottest looks sent down the runway? Well, you can stream just about every runway show live online at http://www.mbfashionweek.com/live. Stream whatever shows your fashionista heart desires.
The Essentials for Fashion Week at Home:
Your iPhone (or other smart phone)
As mentioned above, make sure to live Tweet and Instagram your reactions to the collections, and your favorite looks sent down the catwalk. Don’t forget to hashtag #MBFW, #FW14, and the designer. (image from freshnessmag.com)
A Notebook and Pen
No, this isn’t college all over again, but a notebook sure will come in handy. Why wait for magazines to tell you the latest trends when you can document them yourself while watching the shows. Keep a notebook and pen near you to keep track of the trends you love, what you see (colors, patterns, materials, et cetera) come down the runway most often, along with your favorite collections.

A Fabulous Pair of Loungewear
Sure you’re watching the shows from the comfort of your own home, but that doesn’t mean fashion has to take a vacation. Sport some adorable loungewear or pajamas, along with a pair of slippers. You won’t be dashing through the streets of New York to make it to the shows, but a cute pair of slippers never hurt anyone. These Rag & Bone joggers paired with the Topshop crew neck sweatshirt are equally comfy, casual, and cute. (Image from http://bellalurosa.polyvore.com/)
While you’re at home, lounging around and watching the shows, you might as well pamper yourself. Combine Fashion Week and Spa Week with facemasks, hair treatments, and nail polish. (Image from http://bellalurosa.polyvore.com/)
Yes, you’ll be missing out on the real-deal, wild, crazy, exhilarating, tiring Fashion Week experience, but, hey, at least you’ll be comfortable!
