Fashion week starts tomorrow! We’ve been eagerly anticipating the fall collections, front row celebs and tweeting at the tents since last week. But even though it's our favorite week of the year, it’s also the most grueling. Blogging conferences start at 8AM, shows last all day and after show parties go to the early morning. Wondering what the fashionable crowd does to make it through? Here are our fashionable list of how to survive the week. What tips do you have for us?   1.  Eat breakfast: Make sure you’re working on a full stomach. Days at the tents can be long and water and coffee will only take you so far. 2.  Lay it out: Pick out your outfits the night before, like these lovely ladies sure do. (Derek already has his entire week planned out!)           3. Charge it: If you’re tweeting from day to night, charge your phone/laptop! There's nothing like a dead battery to kill your day. 4. Early bird: The most fashionable never stay at the after party too long. You're busy and important.           See you tomorrow! Read More
