Oppa fifties style! (Hey sexy lady!)

https://i1.wp.com/www.laurengabrielson.com/product_images/uploaded_images/locations-img.jpgWhen we were recently in New York we stayed in an apartment along a quiet street in SoHo/NoLIta. We happened to be living right next to the store of a local designer, Lauren Gabrielson. Her vintage-inspired dresses and buttery soft coats (along with a generous helping of lace – my fave!) sucked me in immediately. However, since we still had two weeks in New York, I restrained myself thinking that I’d possibly find something else I liked better during our stay.

It was hard to walk past that store window everyday, the dresses with their gorgeous fifties-styling paired with modern bright pops of colour seemed to bat their lacy eyelashes at me. Then, I did it – on our second last day in New York, the thought of leaving the city without one of those dresses was too much for me to bear. I narrowed the field down to two dresses, one demure and one with a bit more “ka-pow!”. I’ll leave you to decide which one I picked…

P.S. The makeup is a bit heavier than what I’m used to, it was done for the wedding I attended over the weekend. I was torn between liking the “drama” of it all to “woah, who’s the scary eyebrow lady.”¬†dress-4dress-11dress-8dress-6dress-10***What I’m wearing – silk and lace dress by Lauren Gabrielson, red bow belt bought from Artists & Fleas Chelsea Market pop-up store, diamante bow heels by Franco Burrone (check these out!), diamond and semiprecious stone earrings borrowed from Mumsy (read stolen/permanent loan)
