Last night, I was in NYC to attend my first ever New York Fashion Week event, yes, little ole me!! While it was not Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino or Chanel (I will be there one day <3), this was a quaint show that took place at Stitch Bar and Lounge on 37th St. A newer designer was unveiling her line of little black dresses. It was a fun, intimate vibe and I was so happy to be invited!! For my NYFW debut, I chose to wear my new go to favorite- Torn by Ronny Kobo. I’ve said it before, the fabric, the prints, the look and the comfort level are all details that cannot be ignored. This American designer gets it and so do I! I chose this darling dress because while it is simple, the print is fun and young and the style is as well. Don’t be shocked; there are even little shoulder pads in this dress. I was like – what the heck????? My mom said…they used to be in everything, they must be coming back! No matter, they just gave the edge of the shoulder a little lift and I adore this dress! To accessorize, I wore my fabulous black and rhinestone Chanel cuff and Chanel crystal logo earrings and that was it. I carried the black Soho bag by Gucci. My shoes were a new find, my first pair of Alice and Olivia shoes. These are my new love. Drixa, these black, studded, strappy heels are really magnificent with a 3-button closure on the outside. Honestly, I love my shoes and the price point of these, while still expensive, they are not exorbitant, yet I felt like they were priceless (and really comfortable too!)!! I finished off the night with a quick pop in to Pinkberry and it was a success.
Today’s featured outfit is actually a matching skirt and top that could be perceived as a dress. There are so many things I love about this outfit by Torn. The fabric is so stretchy and comfortable, perfect for hitting up the candy store and the colors are so crisp. The design of stripes is shaken up by the v pattern at the front and back of the skirt.The skirt is short and flouncy, giving a very relaxed yet pulled together feel. I guess I am not the only one that finds this outfit very appealing, as the compliments I received while shooting this post (and shopping along the way) were numerous! If you were to wear it out in the evening, you could easily add heels and a great wrap if it were a cool evening. I carried my neutral Prada bag, as the color and pattern in the outfit are really what does the talking here. I wore Chanel sandals for the power walking I intended to do in the short time I had to get some browsing (shopping) in. This outfit is one of those that just makes you feel good when you are wearing it! Top: Torn by Ronny Kobo | Skirt: Torn by Ronny Kobo | Bag: Prada| Shoes: Chanel ( Purchased In Store at Saks)
