I found this dress on ASOS maybe a year ago, and there was only one left, two sizes too big, on sale for $150. So I bought it and promised myself I would take it in to get it altered. Fast forward to last Friday when I decided to wear it to NYFW and begged the tailor to magically take in the dress in 5 days. I am so happy with the results! The dress fit like a glove, and I felt a little Hollywood glam with a modern edge the entire day. I paired the dress with my favorite Lulu*s heels (that were comfy, which is so key) and this gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff clutch courtesy of the ladies over at Bleeker & Spring. After a pit stop at the Vogue Runway Retreat to get my hair done, Anabella and I shot some quick shots in between running around like crazy to make the shows.
There are so many things that I loved from the runways, I wish I could just skip winter and head straight to spring! Once Anabella and I have a chance to review all of the runway photos we got you can check back in for a post about what will be big next season. (Hint, hint, the two-piece trend is not going anywhere.)
Now that we are on the tail-end of the week I have upped my coffee intake from non-existent to like 15 cups a day and I think my toes are going to fall off. I should really keep count of how many cabs I have taken in the past four days, but I won’t post the number here because my dad reads this and he’s going to give me a call being like “How much does that cost?!?!?” (Sorry Pops…) The week is fun and the collections are beautiful, but I am sure any blogger can tell you, this is an exhausting (amazing and unique) experience! Check back later this week for all the details later in the week…perhaps after I have taken a nap. 😉
