I spent a lot of time pouring through dresses, shoes, and websites for Fashion Week outfit inspiration. I’ve been before, so I knew how crucial the right look is. I also knew how crucial my phone would be. I needed to be able to be connected 24/7 during my trip. Your phone is your lifeline for communication, capturing inspiration, getting transportation, calendar notifications, show address locations, sharing looks from the runway, and behind the scenes style at shows.
The accessories I brought with me for my phone were just as important as the accessories I brought with me for my dresses. My OtterBox uniVERSE case was absolutely the right pick for Fashion Week, and here is why:
Durable Case: My phone went everywhere I went. In and out of Ubers, runways, meetings, and up and down the blocks of New York. It was constantly in my hand, and there were so many times it could have gotten dropped onto hard cement. I love the look of my clean white uniVERSE case and I love how strong it is. The rubber grip all around the edges gives my phone extra protection without the added bulk.
Portable Phone Charger: An external charger is an absolute MUST at Fashion Week. I never left my hotel room without my phone and this extra charger from PolarPro. I didn’t have to worry about having to grab my phone cord because this charger is made specifically for my uniVERSE case, and it slides right on! There is a button on the back that I push to start or stop the charging, and an LED light indicator that told me how much battery life I had. I got almost two full charges out of this extra charger, and I used it every single day. I charged my phone and my external charger at night, and I was good to go for the next day!
Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens: I take a lot of my iPhone pictures in a square format, but sometimes I can’t get the full shot I’m looking for in the tiny square. This portable iphone lens fits right onto my uniVERSE case, and the wide angle lens allowed me to capture so much more in the shot! The glass is top notch, so I didn’t lose any image quality. It also worked great for trying to take a sefie with lots of people 😉
Tripod: I worked a lot with a photographer while I was in New York, but there were times when she wasn’t with me when I wanted to capture a great shot. So I threw this compact tripod from PolarPro in my bag so I would get a photo regardless of whether someone was there to take it for me or not! My OtterBox uniVERSE case slides right onto the top of the tripod so I didn’t have to worry about my phone falling out of the tripod (does anyone remember when that happened while I was trying to take family pictures??).

I had so much fun partnering with OtterBox during my time in New York. I took over their Instastory for one of my days out there, and shared some behind the scenes while I was getting ready and packing my bag. I even shared an up close look at the Tumbler and Tipsy runway show! The night of that show was my busiest night of Fashion Week, and it was so nice not to have to worry about running out of battery while going from place to place!
