I know it’s been a month since NYFW but I still have pictures to share! I’d been saving this red dress for the right occasion and I decided that the rewardStyle NYFW party would be the perfect place to wear it.
While I was there, I was reunited with blogger friends Lydia and Meg, who I hadn’t seen since I moved from Connecticut to New York. It was so great to catch up with them at the party! And get this- I also ran into a friend who I hadn’t seen since high school. At first I thought there was no way it could be her, since as far as I knew she was not a fashion blogger, but it turns out she has her own photography business and came to New York as the photographer for B. Jones Style. It was definitely one of those moments where you think, “What a small world!”
Before my roomie and I adopted our kitty Milton, I would say that I was just a cat lady. I thought cats were very cute/adorable, but I wasn’t obsessed. Somehow between then and now, I’ve become a crazy cat lady. Before, I would see something with a cat print on it and I would think, “Oh, that’s so cute!” Now I’m like, “ZOMG! I LOVE IT! I NEED IT RIGHT NOW!” That’s pretty much how I felt about this dress.
I am totally not surprised that this dress is popular in the blogging community (I think I’ve seen at least 3 other outfit posts with this dress). I wore this for my second day of NYFW. I was a little hesitant because I thought it was pretty likely that someone else would also show up in this dress, but in the end I decided to go for it. I love the fit-and-flare shape and it’s such a fun pattern that I don’t mind so much if everyone else has this dress too.
Excuse the mess on top of my head- can you tell it was a little windy?

Tell me: Do you steer clear of clothing that lots of people own or does that not affect your purchasing decisions?
I was so in love with the braids the models sported for the Mara Hoffman show! To find out more about the beauty look and the products used, check out the full post on Beauty in New York City!
