Why am I in Boston the opening weekend of FW14 shows? Because, first and foremost, I am a mother and I’m visiting my older daughter. Truth be told, this weekend especially, I prefer looking at the collections online as it’s freezing in NYC and the designers are presenting all over the city.
Last evening, as I strolled Newbury street in my current run-around outfit– black fur jacket, black sweater and pants, mini crossbody bag, and white sneakers, I certainly got quite a few looks. Although Boston is my hometown, I realized that I’ve been away for a lifetime and I’m now a New Yorker, inside, and more obviously, out.
