Outfit: Kix'ies Lingerie Fashion Week Presentation

I never thought I would ever be invited to a New York Fashion Week event, but then Alex of Glory Boon and Maile of Kix'ies emailed me about attending a Kix'ies presentation for Lingerie Fashion Week! So exciting! Maile even sent me two pairs of Kix'ies, polka dot ones and pinstripe ones. Thank you, Maile!

Kix'ies are thigh high tights that come in fun patterns that actually stay up. They have three silicone-grip bands at the top that help keep them in place, and they really do stay up. Kix'ies is the brainchild of Samantha DeMartini, who created these thigh highs to be comfortable and make you feel a little sexy. A percentage of each Kix'ie goes to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of her dad who passed away from Hodgkin s Lymphoma in 1995. 

I don't get many chances to dress up, so I decided to wear a new dress that I bought with my friend Avra, added some sparkle (how cool are these star earrings?!), booties, and of course some polka dot thigh high Kix'ies. I met up with some amazing bloggers: Alex of Glory Boon, Melissa of Simple Stylezz, and Julissa. It was wonderful hanging out with them all day, talking about blogging on the terrace of Canoe Studios and walking around Chelsea Market. 

P.S. -- If you're a blogger, pick which Kix'ie you like, email Maile at maile@kixies.com, and she'll send you a free pair!

Below are some pictures from the Kix'ies Lingerie Fashion Week presentation in Chelsea.
Some of the pictures include women that are not fully dressed. I'm not shy about seeing things like this, but I know some people are, so if you want to see more that's entirely up to you.

Behind the scenes
 One of the models almost fainted (it was pretty hot in there under all those lights),
so Julissa and Alex stepped up and modeled in her place!
They were fantastic! And it's a great story -- "Remember that day I was a fashion week model?"
The acrobats were amazing; so mesmerizing!
Swag bag!

  7. Oh my, it must have been amaaaazing! I have Paris, London and Milan Fashion week happening "nearby", and sometimes receive invitations too. Too bad the plane / train tickets are never included, haha. I think I saw a picture of you and the other gals on Instagram, no? I was already wondering about the event and it was nice to get to know Kixies through your post! I love the characterizing bands on the thighs. Your polka dot pair looks super-duper cute. And I'm very much in love with your handbag too! xo

  12. I love the idea of Kix'ies - they look so comfortable and they definitely have a hint of sex appeal, too! How lucky that you were able to attend their presenation, it looks like it was a lot of fun and what a bonus to have an excuse to dress up. Your dress is so pretty, the colours suit you really well.
    xox,
    Cee
