When I was searching for outfits for NYFW, I wanted something that would make a statement and be unique but that wouldn’t break the bank. Keeping up with fashion trends can be so hard if everything you buy is designer. I could’ve have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on all of my outfits for New York but I had to be practical! Aka, I couldn’t even pretend that that was an option! When I saw this blue lace midi dress and then the price tag, I knew it would be perfect for fashion week! I actually think this is a dupe for a $500 designer dress but I couldn’t find the original online.
I am so impressed with the quality of this dress! It fits so perfectly. And I love how structured it is. This dress would be perfect for a fall wedding, a fancy date night or just because you want to get dressed up. More and more, I am just wearing stuff whenever I want. Sometimes it can be weird to be the only one dressed up with I go out certain places, but it’s what I love to do, and if I don’t wear my pieces on regular old days too, I’ll end up with lots of pretty unworn things in my closet.
P.S. We went to the Gansevoort Hotel rooftop on Park Ave this night in New York, and if you want an amazing view, you need to go. The sun was setting in between all the buildings, and it was just magic.
I am so excited for today and tomorrow. Ben and I are both off together! He has been so busy with work at the fire station and other commitments with the Marine Corps that we have barely seen each other since before I left to New York. I’m hoping that we will get back to our normal soon because as much as I try to keep busy, I still just want to be with my hubs!
