Earlier this week when I showed you guys what I wore to the Boy Meets Girl party I mentioned that I wanted to go a little more casual to this year’s Fashion Week events. Last year I put SO MUCH PRESSURE on myself to put together the most top notch outfits with my most expensive heels & bags and everything in between. After hours of romping around the city I was miserable and uncomfortable. I knew this year was going to be no different for anyone else, but personally, I wanted to enjoy myself.
I had no idea what I was going to wear when I RSVP’ed to Reward Style’s annual roof top party. I did know that every other blogger in the universe was going to show up dressed to the nines and beyond. I didn’t want to show up in sweat pants & sneakers, obvi, but I did want to be comfortable while looking like I did put some thought into my outfit. I stopped in my friends store, Uphoria Boutique in Little Silver, who always has the best staple pieces in stock. These comfortable midi length dresses were all over her store with different types of embellishments. I tried on about 5 different pieces but ended up going for this one based on the color alone. I am a sucker for a deep red hue. I also loved the details on the back of the dress, which I forgot to snap a picture of. The back of the dress had a racerback fit but offered the illusion that it was layered with another dress underneath.
It ended up being an extremely hot day so there was no need to carry around my leather jacket, unfortunately. I think it actually really completes the look I was going for, ha. The party was a blast except for a quick downpour that forced about 100 girls to huddle under a tiny little covering. On the bright side, It was a great way to meet fellow bloggers.
I have yet to shoot the outfit I wore to the Lulu’s party a few nights earlier, but hopefully I can manage to get that together for you guys because I really loved that outfit too. Overall I had a blast during fashion week, but I am exhausted! I’m heading off to North Carolina with my best friend today for a little R&R and girl time to recoup! See you guys when I return!
