Black Party Dress

Yes yes, this is technically a black party dress, but when I get dressed, I don’t like to play by the rules. If I feel comfortable wearing it, I’m going to wear it. At the beginning of summer I cleaned out my closet and headed down to my neighborhood thrift store- only 100 blocks down of my apartment, you know…) and sold some pretty things I no longer had any need for. In return, I got almost $100 in store credit- and I went to town. I wasn’t sure about this dress, the temperatures were rising and I would have no need for anything long-sleeve (even if it’s mesh) for months. Still, knowing that winter in NYC lasts about eight months, I decided to go ahead and spent $27 on this LBD.

I’m sure I will get to use it a lot this season, but before it got too cold for me to shoot outside, I decided to wear it as a day-time look in Randall’s Island. BTW, if you’re ever in New York Randall’s Island is a MUST. Even though it’s a separate island, it’s still part of the borough of Manhattan, and easy to get to using public transportation, or even walking.

You just saw these thigh-high socks last week, but I like what I like, so sue me! You’ve also seen these black Chinese Laundry booties again and again, but I think they are just the perfect shoe- and my favorite pair at that! They’re simple enough to go with everything, sleek enough to look modern, and comfortable enough that I can stand for hours without wanting to weep. They unfortunately don’t make them anymore, but here’s a similar bootie by Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry. I just added these to my 2014 wish list!
