Giveaway :: NYFW with Marissa Webb and Banana Republic

by wendy


Happy Wednesday everyone!  If you have a moment, please kindly stay till the end of this post.  I have a very special announcement to share with you!  It’ll truly be an unforgettable experience.







Two years ago, I purchased my very first Marissa Webb piece… The Genevieve blazer.  I posted the outfit picture on Instagram, and a few days later got an email from Marissa.  I seriously thought it was spam (when anything is too good to be true, I always think it’s spam!).  We emailed back and forth, and she invited me to her runway show later that month.  Like a child in a candy store, I savored every minute of that show.  After the show, my friend Kelly and I snuck backstage.  We got in line and waited behind the press and other media people.  By the time I got up there, I was so nervous I couldn’t put a sentence together… Hi Marissa!  I wore your blazer on Instagram.  I seriously wanted to face palm myself afterwards.  Marissa looked at me and said… Wendy!!!  Wait, there’s another person name Wendy behind me?!  Again, when things are too good to be true, I have a hard time accepting it.  That Genevieve blazer gave me something invaluable.  A sense of confidence every time I wear it and a friendship with a woman who I admire greatly.  As our friendship deepened over the years, I learned that this woman is not only talented, now as the creative director of Banana Republic, along with her own line, but she’s incredibly kind and passionate.  We had many meals together where we cried over our four legged companions, talked about superheroes, and laughed about my (nonexistent) love life.  I can go on and on… but what I really would love, is for you to meet her.

Every time New York Fashion Week comes around, I always pitch myself and count my blessings.  Being part of that energy, seeing stunning designs down the runway, walking through beautiful presentations, meeting designers, reuniting with old friends and making new ones… this is what makes NYFW so special to me.  It would be an honor if you can join me this season.

We’re celebrating New York Fashion Week with Marissa Webb and Banana Republic.  This experience is truly special and I hope to see you soon!
