Sharing my New York Fashion Week 2016 After Party Outfit!
Even though NYFW is mostly about runways and streetstyle fashion trends, we can’t forget about the fabulous after parties. One of the challenges I find with NYFW is finding the right outfits to wear all day long, then to change into an entirely fresh outfit for my evening events. Attending parties after a day of attending shows is a great way to relax, connect with friends and of course do a little bit of celebrity spotting while having fun. Although it was ultra-cold in New York last week during fashion week, that didn’t stop me from wearing a dress and bearing some legs for one of the after parties.
My hubby and I shot this look when we got back to Calgary, however I thought I’d share this dress with you. I wore this dress under a leather bomber jacket for the BCBGMAXAZRIA NYFW after party. I wanted something easy and comfortable for the evening, especially since that particular day had been super busy. My mood that evening was all about chic and sexy combined with a touch of minimalism. This dress felt perfect for the vibe. Seriously given how cold New York was, we had to get the taxi driver drop us off directly out front of the hotel so that I didn’t have to walk even a second longer than needed outside. It was crazy! That humid chill that Easterners have to bear is unbelievable, I don’t know how you gals do it!
I love wearing choker necklaces right now and especially appreciate how this dress has the neck tie designed in. I like pairing tunic dresses like this one with chain boots, and sometimes I wear my coat off my shoulders to show off my outfit. That way my dress doesn’t get hidden underneath.
On a different note, I’d like to take a moment to encourage all of you to wear pink on February 24th in support of standing up against bullying. For my friends who live in Canada, you can support those who have been bullied by purchasing an official Pink Shirt at London Drugs and wear it on February 24th to join in on the National movement. The net proceeds of all shirt sales will support local Boys and Girls Clubs anti-bullying programs. Join me in supporting this cause to share love and the acceptance that everyone deserves.
