Edging Up a Floral Print Dress with a Moto Jacket and Animal Prints
New York Fashion Week Day 2 February 2018
Bold and Feminine For Day 2 Of New York Fashion Week
For Day 2 of New York Fashion Week, I decided to wear a Dan Liu dress that was gifted to me to the Shows and parties. I’m not a huge fan of floral prints, but as soon as I saw this dress, I knew I could make it work with my style. Link to the Fall/Winter 2016/2017 Collection is here. I threw on this gorgeous army-green motto jacket that is decorated with navy blue laced X’s all over the front and down the sleeves. I believe this item is now sold out from BCBG Maxazria, but I will find similar jackets here, here, and here. I received a lot of compliments on this piece.
I knew it was going to be cold that day, so I definitely wanted to wear some tights to cover up my bare legs. I opted for the knee-high length tights from Item M6 that have these adorable patterned hearts all over them and a small gold heart charm on the right leg. The navy blue hue of the tights matched the blue dyes on the floral print of the Dan Liu dress so it was a perfect match. You can buy the plain versions of these tights here.
For shoes, I decided to mix up the textures a bit and go for these Joan Oloff suede black booties that have a beautiful bronzed python pattern at the toes and heels. These booties are super stylish and pretty comfortable – I walked around with them all day with no complaints.
Finally, for accessories, I grabbed my black embossed Python Saint Laurent mini bag. It has this cute tassel as well that gives it something special. And finally, thanks to Pretty Connected, I was able to wear my Sony Vlogging camera in style with this beautiful customized camera strap.
NYFW Day 2 Event Recap
Friday was such a fun-filled day. I got dressed in Dan Liu to wear to the front row at Fashion Hong Kong. As my family is from Hong Kong, I really appreciated the various designer pieces that walked down the runway. I really love the city and seeing that come to life in the Show was amazing to see. (Stay tuned for my designer recap coming soon where I will go more in depth). The pieces were really edgy and I loved how there were masculine pieces in addition to womenswear.
My intern went to Bibhu Mohapatra to grab some footage and attend in my presence while I went to Fashion Hong Kong. Bibhu was, as always, a wonderful and spectacular Show.
Next up was Concept Korea which has a similar idea to Fashion Hong Kong by bringing the country’s designers to NYC streets. The designs were playful and feminine with pastel colors – I loved it!
Then, I went to Priscavera backstage to see the models get ready and luckily for me, I was able to get my hair done, too! This was perfectly timed because as I was finished getting pampered, I went to go celebrate NYFW with Aveda, Fashion Hong Kong, and then Concept Korea. By the end of the night, I was so pooped with a long day and an evening full of three parties!
And that’s it for Day 2! Stay tuned for more outfit recaps in the next few days.
