The Cut is running a week-long style diary on Amanda Brooks of Barneys, and today's edition begins with her getup for the First Official Day of Fashion Week. She's wearing a pretty awesome outfit—a Brooks Brothers little boy's shirt, Chanel pencil skirt, Alaïa sandals and a Céline bag—but adds: "I felt great until I walked into the first day of my kids' school and felt completely out of place among the more casual moms in gym gear and sneakers. Oh well, you cant win 'em all." [The Cut]
