Hello! This special Friday post is to share with you all some very exciting news. I have been chosen to be a correspondent for College Fashion Week NYC! This post is sponsored by Her Campus Media and its College Fashion Week brand partners. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Amourtera possible! Keep reading for information about the event I've been waiting all year for!
I have been waiting all year for College Fashion Week to come back to New York. Last year, I walked in the show as one of the models. The whole process of getting ready was such a unique experience, and I met so many great people. The event itself was so fun! It's a great meeting place for college students with an interest in beauty and fashion to meet and celebrate their interests together. I loved having my friends attend last year, and enjoyed networking with other bloggers too.
This year the event will be held tomorrow, October 1, from 6pm-9pm at the venue 404. I'm so honored to say that I will be there as one of Her Campus's official College Fashion Week correspondents. It's going to be an absolute blast! If you're just hearing about the event now, no worries. You can still buy tickets by clicking this link here. They are $20 a piece plus a $1.49 processing fee, a total steal considering you'll be walking away with a goodie bag and a great experience.
Sponsoring the event are six fantastic sponsors. I love brands that give back and support events that let young people have opportunities to meet others with the same interests, especially in the blogging world. Events like this aren't possible without the support of brands like them. Here's a peak at who these awesome brands are:
Fitbit Who doesn't know someone with a Fitbit? Honestly, I feel like everyone and their mother has one, and I'm jealous because I don't have one yet! As someone who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle that includes keeping track of fitness, investing in a Fitbit is the next obvious move. Their products track things like steps, distances walked, and even calories burned. The newest version, Fitbit Flex 2, is slimmer and sleeker than the first bracelet. This one can be worn different ways to what best fits for you too! Definitely worth checking out if you're into health and fitness. Click here to check out their site!
Drybar All of Drybar's products are so pretty. Not only is the packaging great, but the products are to die for. My roommate has their dry shampoo and it is the best thing ever. After sprayed onto your roots, it feels so luxurious, smells great, and instantly revives oily strands. Along with products, they have salons scattered across the country and a membership program. These people are also masters of the blow out, hair can't get any better. Click here to check out their site!
Rebecca Minkoff Rebecca Minkoff is one of the hottest women's wear designers on the scene. This past NYFW, I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to her runway show after party. It was so cool, the whole Soho location was filled with music, people, fashion, and refreshments. That's where I bought my cute little "K" vinyl sticker from (catch it on Instagram?). Anyway, I'm a big fan of Minkoff's designs, they are perfect for we young professionals and trendy girls! Click here to check out their site!
Vince Camuto I am so happy Vince Camuto is one of the sponsors for the event. Some of my favorite shoes are Vince Camuto, and I love how every time I wear them out I'm always getting compliments. Besides shoes, they have a whole clothing lines for men and women. One of my favorite lines from them is TWO by Vince Camuto, mostly because one of my favorite jackets is from them. Totally take a look at their heels and jackets, they're killer! Click here to check out their site!
Bertha Watches If you're in the market for a nice watch, Bertha Watches should be one of the first places you go. I believe every man and woman should own at least one nice watch. They are such a great piece; not only is it handy for literally telling time (because there are moments where you can't take your phone out to check), but it also helps in making someone look more pulled together. Bertha Watches has so many fantastic designs to choose from, all great quality. Along with watches, they have a whole sunglasses site with high-end sunglasses that will blow you away.

Perfumania I am someone who loves perfumes. There's something about an expensive perfume in particular that I feel tops off any look. I have one really high-end perfume at a time because I need to be aware of my expenses, but I love to keep it aside for special occasions. This way, I don't use too much of the perfume up too quickly haha! Perfumania is perfect for both high-end and mid-range perfumes. Their selection is unbeatable, and you're bound to find something for special occasions and for everyday use! Click here to check out their site!
See what I'm talking about when I say these sponsors are incredible? It's just another reason to get excited for the big event tomorrow. It's going to be glamorous. It's going to be fun. I'll be there too, and if anyone's planning on going (which I advise you should), make sure to look for me!
Tomorrow is the New York City show, but there are other shows to come in major cities across the country. If you click on the link from the beginning where you can pick up tickets, you can see if the other shows are in a place closer to you. The best part if you're commuting to the city tomorrow is the venue is just a little walk from Penn Station, and only a subway ride away if you're coming into Grand Central.
I can't wait until tomorrow, hope to see some of you there- this is going to be a night to remember!
