The Show: Coterie

I really didn’t know what I was missing out on when my mom and Emily went to the clothing shows in New York while I had to go to school. I always imagined what it would be like…but I didn’t think it would be as fun as it ended up being! I am so glad that my Spring Break fell on the same week as one of the clothing shows because I really did have a blast! And New York City is one of my favorite cities, so that was just the cherry on top!

My mom and Emily started a tradition on their very first time going to a show of going to Starbucks for breakfast. Oatmeal and Coffees (Tea for me though!). And now, it is bad luck to go anywhere else for breakfast on show days…and we wouldn’t want that! So, Starbucks it was.


Then, it was show time!!




The only way I can think of describing what the show was like is comparing it to Devil Wears Prada. Remember the scene when Meryl Streep is being shown all the clothes in a particular collection and she decides whether she likes the pieces or not? “There’s a scale. One nod is good, two nods is very good. There’s only one actual smile on record and that was Tom Ford in 2001. If she doesn’t like it she shakes her head. Then of course there’s the pursing of the lips. Which means? Catastrophe.” That’s how I felt…although Emily, my mom and I were smiling a lot more than pursing our lips! We went from designer to designer picking out some amazing pieces for Milly & Grace.

Here is a sneak peak at what is coming to Milly & Grace this season!

^^Our favorite piece from the collection! That collar is to die for.

And that wraps up the Fall Show! I can’t wait until I get to go back again. And I can’t wait to unpack all the boxes with these cute clothes inside (it’s not often you hear me say that) so that I can try them all on. Summer, hurry up!!
