Every year both during and after New York Fashion Week I find myself scrolling the internet for pictures of what people wore both on and off the runway. While Fashion Week takes place in various cities all over the world, there’s just something about NYFW that inspires me the most. Maybe it’s because I lived in New York City for so long, or maybe it’s because there is something distinct about the fashion and the people in New York City.

Whatever the reason, this year, as I scrolled through picture after picture two things stood out to me the most:
- Glasses. Sunglasses in particular. Sunglasses have a way of completely transforming a look and taking it from classic to edgy with barely any effort at all. Take a look:
- Confidence. I know it sounds like a huge leap to go from sunglasses to confidence, but hear me out. While looking at the pictures of these women in their fabulous shades, it occurred to me how I was instantly drawn to them. And it wasn’t just what they were wearing, either. I was more so attracted to the confidence they exuded without even saying a word. I was so impressed by these ladies that I committed myself to doing a photoshoot rocking my FlashFrames sunglasses to see if I, too, could recreate the mysticism and confidence that seems to pervade the streets of New York City.
FlashFrames, by the way, makes it easy to do so. FlashFrames is an online shop where you can upload a picture of a pair of sunglasses you like and the site will instantly provide you with authentic designer or designer-inspired alternatives with prices starting at $9.99 a pair. I spotted a pair of aviators I wanted so I uploaded the pic and snagged this pair . It was super easy.And they look pretty great on me if I do say so myself.
What’s one thing you do to help boost your confidence when you aren’t feeling particularly confident? My vote is throw on a pair of shades and fake it. What’s yours?
