Let’s All Start Drinking—NYFW Is Less Than Two Weeks Away
The thought of NYFW makes me want to hyperventilate…and drink. A strong cocktail, preferably a margarita straight-up with extra salt, would certainly calm any nerves (and undoubtedly lead to a good time), but I’d also wake up to puffy eyes and dehydrated skin. Not a good look—even if I do spend the majority of my days backstage in the trenches. Instead of finding solace at the bottom of a bottle of Patrón, I’ll be sipping Big T NYC’s Tell-Tale Glow Organic White Tea like a responsible beauty editor navigating a month full of long days and even longer nights. The “couture tea” brand got its start backstage at Fall 2014 shows like Whit and Nanette Lepore, with models slurping this blend of goji berries, elderberries, and zante currants through lipstick-saving straws. Not only do the natural antioxidants help fight against free radicals and give your complexion a jolt of luminosity, but you’ll stay sober enough to meet fashion week’s never-ending parade of deadlines.
