As Fashion Week approaches, our agendas are filling up and we are pondering what to pack for the Polar Vortex temperatures of New York. Take it from a Fashion Week veteran, Bag Snob AKA Tina Craig of SnobEssentials.com.

The Dallas-based blogger, consultant and entrepreneur knows all about traveling in style, getting the best and fastest services, while making time for theater and fun with fashionable friends in the hottest restaurants and bars in the city.

Fortunately she is not afraid to show and tell what she’s taking to New York, and where she plans to spend her time before, after, and between shows. Here are ten Snob Essentials for NYFW!

John Barrett Salon

Blow Out

“Vênsette is the best thing to happen to beauty in like ever. The Uber-esque app allows you to book hair and makeup on demand straight to your hotel! If you prefer to be pampered at a salon, nobody does it better than my hair guru John Barrett of Bergdorf-blonde fame. This is where you go to get pretty for the big events.”

Must Do:

Bergdorf Goodman's Shoe Salon

Large Floral Long Coat

“Last year we trudged through a major snowstorm to get to all the shows, and with the Polar Vortex looming over us this season, there’s a chance we will have to again. In spite of the cold, I’ll be channeling Spring with this fabulous, floral Marni.”
