I’m baaaaack! I got home from NYWF last night and I can’t lie, I was so so happy to walk through the door. I had the most amazing week in the city with some of my best girlfriends and had such an incredible experience, but let me tell ya, Fashion Week is not for the faint of heart. With shows, presentations, dinners, afterparties, brunches, lunches, and meetings…it can be a lot. Needless to say, I did so many fun things and am sad it’s over, but I am really looking forward to catching up on my sleep and relaxing a bit this week.
I will post more looks, eats, and happenings in the coming posts, but I wanted to share this look with you today. I attended the Carmen Marc Valvo show, and they kindly invited me to their showroom to pick a dress for the occasion. It was so much fun looking through racks of beautiful dresses and trying on so many different styles. I, of course, chose this all black dress but the silhouette is different from anything I normally wear. Since I am petite, I usually prefer more fitted, shorter dresses so my frame isn’t overwhelmed by fabric. When I tried this longer flowy dress on, I really loved how ethereal and feminine it felt. I wanted to contrast the delicate fabric with a deeper makeup look to put an element of darkness against lightness of the dress, so I went for a bold smokey, smudgy eye paired with a nude lip. I hope you guys love this look as much as I did!
