For me, fashion is serious business. So I put together an ultra sophisticated fall look with some of my favorite pieces from Warby Parker and Express. Then I headed to Williamsburg in Brooklyn for some more Autumn-inspired elegance.
Most of you probably haven’t seen me in glasses before because I’m a part time glasses wearer. I need them to drive and to see things far away. But even if I didn’t need them I would still totally head over to Warby Parker and pick out a pair because their styles are all so cute and classic. The frames that fit me best were Oliver in Whiskey Tortoise. I always feel ultra chic and smart when I wear them.
In the Northeast, transitioning your wardrobe into fall and eventually winter is no simple task. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put all of my summer clothes neatly away only to come head to head with an 80 degree day in late October. So I’ve since learned to transition into fall slowly and stylishly.
In New York City everyone always seems to be wearing black. Though this seemingly eternal trend transcends seasons, it’s most apparent in the winter. Personally, I love wearing black. Not only is it slimming, but it never fails to give you a classically dressy look that can be worn to almost any event or occasion. While it’s fun to play with color, black can take you from the office, to dinner and finally to drinks at the club without ever having to change. After all, what New Yorker has time to change?
Having spent summers in New England as a kid, I’ve always been a fan of deckside nautical style. All this look is missing is a dock, the ocean (or lake) and boats. I’m wearing a Vince Camuto dress from Lord & Taylor, a gold Just Cavalli bag (similar) from a consignment store, Juicy Couture sunglasses (similar), and of course “Naughty Nautical” nail polish by Essie.
This evening I met up with my MeetUp group Socialista New York founded by Amy Chandra of Midtown Girl. The event was sponsored by the social shopping website OpenSky where you can shop the collections of your favorite style curators. When a bunch of fashion people get together, we usually like to play with accessories and take pictures. Who says adults can’t play dress-up? Fashion bloggers do it all the time. All of us got to play with OpenSky accessories and take pictures in front of a green screen like in the movies. We then chose from a bunch of New York backgrounds. I decided on the fall in Central Park background because so many pivotal scenes in movies were filmed there and I liked the leaves. It was so great to connect with so many amazing and talented bloggers. Can’t wait for the next Socialista event!
