What's Happening: Fashion Week

New York Fashion week is kicking off today!

The only thing that would make us more excited about this is if we were actually in New York. Unfortunately, we're in Charlotte. (See blog name above) Don't get us wrong, we'd prefer the Queen City over NYC any day... except during Fashion week.

For now though, we're content to scour the web for images as they hit the runway and sit smugly in the comfort of our flip-flops as New York fashionistas rush between shows in their Manolos. And while we will certainly be adding our two cents as the week progresses, we did want to offer a few links to sites that might be able to quench your "must know right now what Marc/Michael/Diane etc had on their runway for spring" desire.

For funny commentary from The Fug Girls, tips on the week's best parties, and more about the models than you ever wanted to know: New York Magazine

For a peek at what people (who are not necessarily celebrities) are wearing to the shows, between the shows, and on the streets outside of the shows: The Sartorialist

For best all around coverage (probably the only place you're going to find every. single. look. from the runway): Style.com (Vogue's Web site)
