The #PRGirl NYFW Recovery Guide

If the regular pace of PR life is like a brisk trot through an urban jungle, New York Fashion Week is perhaps that part in any superhero movie when the city dwellers run for their lives while destruction rains down upon them. In all seriousness, for those fashion publicists working the front lines during one of the most intense work weeks of the year, there is only one thing to do once the last show wraps; enjoy the hell out of that after party, and then put up an out-of-office notification and set yourself on vacay mode.

Even if you aren’t able to truly get out of town, we recommend setting up a home-based mini retreat to reset your soul before Monday. To that end, we’ve rounded up a few essentials for a staycation-style, NYFW recovery weekend.

First up, brand new cotton pajamas to live in all weekend long.
Needham Lane, $70-78
Follow the scent...to freedom.
Evil Queen, $18
A little bit silly, super comfy, walk on a cloud slipper shoes that work for that inevitable run to Duane & Rede? Check.
Zhenzee, $68
After all that champagne, a detox is in order. These come delivered right to your door. Don't you feel better already?
Daily Harvest, $7.99 each
Pedicures are so last season. You need to get a little gross (it's ok, Vogue agrees).
Babyfoot, $15.88
Truth is stranger than fiction. No one knows this more than fashion people. No one. Settle in for one incredible story.
In the Name of Gucci, $24.95 (We suggest the audiobook; your eyes are tired from staring at seating charts).
