Below, you'll find a photo of me at last night's CFDA awards. Yes, I look fancy, but that's one fun part about being a fashion editor. I'm lucky enough to borrow a dress from a designer I love and play Cinderella for a night. But while it all looks plenty fancy with an Instagram filter, there are plenty of unexpected moments the cameras don't capture. From the dangers of wearing a dress with a train (there was a lot of accidental tripping going on) to the unexpected run-ins with inspiring women from Planned Parenthood, other publications, and even a celebrity or two.
Below, I'm sharing a few of the things that struck me most over the course of the evening. While I can't promise each is truly groundbreaking, I hope you'll find some humor in my roller coaster of an evening. One thing I'm most happy to report: Comfortable heels can work in even the most glamorous setting (phew!).
Read on for a breakdown of my first CFDAs!
