If you watched any of my InstaStories, then you would have met Erica. Erica is my sister-in-law and NYFW partner in crime. She was a trooper and marched through the city in these 6 inch boots until she almost passed out. On day three, we made our way to Skylight Clarkson Square and after waiting (standing) for almost two hours, we were invited into the Namilia runway show. Once we were in (standing room only), I looked over and Erica was on the floor. My feet, however seemed to have went numb and the pain dissipated as the Disney music came on and the models walked down the runway in the most outrageous designs that I have EVER seen in person. Just take a look here. Worrrrth it. After all, standing is the new sitting.
I wish I could say that I were wearing these Jessica Simpson booties (similar style here) that night. They are super comfortable. Below is my daytime glam look. This would work nicely for the office, daytime shopping, or a night out. It’s all about versatility. I wore this to DUMBO on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to take in the view of the city and then we went for cocktails at a speakeasy called Bathtub Gin, cleverly hidden beyond a secret door in a coffee shop located in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
This Express dress (now on sale 40% off!) is a classic shape sheath with small balloon sleeves and a simple bow belt. You can take a classic style (look for a cocktail dress at your local consignment shop) and make it new by adding accessories, and mixing patterns and textures, like I did here with these Simply Vera by Vera Wang polka dot tights. Then, I glammed it up with a glitzy statement necklace and earrings from Sugarfix by BaubleBar (this is Baublebar’s line for Target!), cocktail ring from Tiffany & Co and my favorite black go-to bag for Fall/Winter by Kate Spade (similar style here, no tassel).
