The other day I was walking in Chelsea when I came across Second Time Around, a consignment shop in Manhattan that sells high end gently worn clothing. I thought I'd step in and browse while I had a few minutes before I headed to the CEW Beauty Awards but what I found made my heart swoon. A spectacular gray beaded Parker dress was calling my name. So, I quickly snatched it up and headed to the fitting room. Just my size! I couldn't resist so I continued my love affair to the register.
HOW I WORE IT: Perfect for going out on warmer nights ahead, I like the idea of pairing the dark gray with a pop of color like I've done here with my fuchsia lipstick. When I wear something embellished I try to keep accessories to a minimum so I've paired this look with fun earrings (made by local jewelry company, DavikiNYC) and kept the bracelets simple. If I'm wanting a more bid con look, I can throw on a skinny belt to draw more attention to the waist. A little blush and an opened toe sandal pump and I'm good to go! TAXI!
