Day 2 at New York Fashion Week was a cold one. If you’re looking for how to wear a little black dress in winter, I have you covered… I wore this dress by Hunter Bell. I love the high collar, mid calf length, and fluttery shoulders. I actually rented this dress from Rent the Runway, but I wish that I owned it. I have a pro membership with Rent the Runway, which allows me to rent from them frequently without incurring the extra cost of insurance and shipping. I have had many great, and some not-so-great experiences with this service. Is there any interest in learning more about RTR? If so, I’d be happy to write a post all about it… comment below.
We stopped at the NOMO SOHO for Bloody Marys before heading to the Stewart Hotel to see Rocky Boston‘s runway show, hosted by Fashion Gallery. These shoes are not made for walking, I’ll tell you that. Normal wear around a hotel, a show, a party, yes. But walking city blocks, no. You should consider keeping a pair of flats in your purse and switch your shoes when you reach your destination. I learned that lesson during September Fashion Week. I will say that these boots are warm and the added height, gold buckle and zipper add a little extra “umph” to any outfit that you would pair black booties with. Similar styles linked below…
Add some chunky gold jewelry and a grey leather bag with chain-link strap and gold hardware, and you just took a simple black dress to the next level.
