It’s a wrap (dress)!

Well, my time in New York is over but I have had a truly fabulous time in this city that never sleeps. Between my time wondering its neighborhoods to educating myself at IFBCON and finishing up with becoming inspired at LuckyFABB, it has been a whirlwind but wonderful time. I posted several Instagram pictures on my Facebook page of some of the speakers I heard while attending the LuckyFABB conference…so if you’d like to check out Rachel Zoe, Lauren Conrad, Anna Sui and more…head over to my page and check out the album…you’ll also get a chance to see some amazing shoes from those ladies ;)
Ark & Co. wrap dress (purchased at the fabulous Coup de Couer shop in New York for $62.00)
YSL Large Clutch in dark gray
Christian Louboutin Miss Boxe Wedges in patent black (similar in cork here)
So that literally wraps up my week…so happy to be back Miami and posting again soon!
I have soooo much to share with you all. Right now, I am heading out to Fashion’s Night Out Miami but tomorrow I will be back to respond to ALL your comments…I read, appreciate and love them all :)

    LOVE that dress. The pattern and print look like a DVF I’ve seen. FAB!

      Thank you!!
      I agree that it definitely has a DVF feel to it…but at that price, it’s definitely an affordable style you can add in your closet ;)

      Thank you so much, Rebecca…
      If you can believe, I have had those Louboutins for about 7 years…had them re-soled 3 times already but I can’t get rid of them because I love them too much ;)
      Always good to take care of the “babies” ;)

    I think I need a wrap dress. It looks amazing on you.

    • September 7, 2012 / 9:14 pm

      Wrap dresses are a MUST!!
      You will love it…they’re so easy, always look nice and they flatter all shapes…what’s not to love ;)

    ohhh honey you look so chic, bit i dont know, i want to add extra something on your neck, it was to plain.

      Hi Love,
      I agree that my look lacked a little bit of “kick”. You’re right that a necklace would have added something extra to the look. I need to get more comfortable with accessorizing ;)
      New York was amazing.
      Yes, it’s NYFW time and I did some coverage before the shows…did you see the post about Bibhu Mohapatra?
      I think you’ll really enjoy it.

    Hi Martha! so nice that you have a great time! is so easy to find something great to do in that great city :)
    I think that u look very feminine, my favourite are the shoesssss , are they confortable?

    I m going to be in Miami next week, is there any interesting fashion event during those days?

    Ciao Bella!

    • September 7, 2012 / 9:17 pm

      Yes, these shoes are my most comfortable shoes ever…and I wear them a lot. I always think that wedges are the best solution for comfort and because these are in patent leather, they look a little dressier than most wedges.
      As for fashion next week in Miami…there may be an event as TopShop is opening up here. I will post on my Facebook page what is coming up so you can check there:
