Play Ball

I didn’t get a chance to take any Day 5 photos seeing as I was at work all day, but I was able to attend the Reem Acra show after work! Now, on to..

NYFW: Day 6

I dressed a bit more sporty, rock ‘n’ roll, and a tad bit incognito (hat + sunnies) for the Badgley Mischka show. Rose and I stayed around Lincoln Center afterwards to scope out some killer street style and we ended up seeing Nina Garcia, Bill Cunningham, Grace Coddington, and more after the Vera Wang show got out!

After braving the cold for a while, I headed down to BaubleBar Unwrapped to warm up! Nothing like beautiful bling to fight off the chilly temps, right?! Naturally, I walked out with way more jewelry than I should have! To see one of the necklaces I bought, click here. Unfortunately, the other two aren’t on the website. That’s the beauty of the pop-up shop! Make sure you stop by if you’re in NYC… It’s open until the end of the month!

Oh hey, lint.

I wore a pale pink lip to juxtapose the edginess of the outfit. Dolce & Gabbana Rosebud.

These shoes are gorgeous, right? Well, I’ll be honest… They weren’t on my feet that long. Thank goodness I brought flats in my bag! The vamp is so steep, and after a week+ in heels all day, walking in these was not an option.

      I have that necklace, too! They’re actually pretty different in person, or maybe I just tell myself that to justify the purchase 😉

      Too funny you love my hair straight… My mom will probably comment on this and tell me how much better she likes it curled! haha

    Such a cute look! So different from your normal style but still a touch of you with the bows! I’m loving those heels but I hear you on walking in heels after being in them all day! Brutal!

    Slightly obsessed with this look. If it was at all cold in Florida this is exactly what I would be running around in. Such a shame those shoes weren’t that comfortable because they are gorgeous!
