This outfit honestly deserved a post all of it’s own. I did a recap of my NYFW weekend in this post but with so many party photos I thought I would do a traditional NYC outfit post by itself. I’m not gonna lie. Picking an outfit was stressful. I had so many different ideas but what I wore to for the NYFW Reward Style party was pretty classic, simple but had a little edge.
Ok onto the outfit. I kept my outfit for Friday’s event pretty simple with jeans and a statement top so I wanted to step it up for Saturday night but also stay comfortable.
You can’t go wrong with black and you certainly can’t go wrong with a wrap dress. This dress was only $60 and is perfect for petites. It is short so keep that in mind if you are taller. For size reference I’m wearing a size 2.
The dress comes with a black tie sash that you can tie but I opted to add a belt. If you follow any bloggers on Instagram you may have seen that everyone is all over the Gucci and Louis Vuitton dupe belts right now. I am not one for using knockoffs but this Gucci inspired belt was too good of a dupe to pass up! No shame here. The belt is not the real thing but every once in awhile you gotta do things in the name of fashion haha!
As for the shoes mine are old. Like crazy old. I even tried selling them on my Poshmark account. Now I’m thankful no one scooped them up because the ivory added something different to an otherwise ordinary black dress. Dear booties, I promise to never try and sell you again. You kept my feet comfy all night and totally made me love my outfit. I did link 2 similar options in the widget at the end of the post.
I did my makeup myself but did get my hair blown out and had the topknot put in because well — why not! It’s NYFW. Gotta step it up! And God knows my topknots are a total fail most days. What is it about topknots and messy buns? So impossible to pull off when the pressure is on!
And that’s a wrap! A memorable NYFW weekend in the books! The nerves turned into smiles, laughs and memories that will last a lifetime! And even more special that I had my HOLB squad be there for a part of it. I didn’t name this blog House of Leo for nothing!
