fashion week is coming to an end, but for me, it ended with a bang at the rewardstyle party satrurday evening. every season, i always look forward to this event as i am able to see and catch up with some of my favorite blogger babes. i even ran into beth, who i haven't seen since our days at kate spade in washington, dc! i also loved catching up with emily, kate, kayla, and caroline...those ladies always make my day! oh and dana. obviously. and then i met some new faces like lejla who is just the sweetest!! once again i am reminded why i love doing what i do and the great music and open bar didn't hurt either!
thank goodness summer is (un)officially over...i never thought this day would come! now we can officially let the transition to fall begin. bring on the sweaters and deeper hues! this past weekend gave us a teaser of what fall is going to be like and life was good: until it became 85 degrees yesterday and all i wanted to wear was a black leather jacket. but i'm clearly over it. so on days that, i reach for this perfectly lightweight dress to get me through the day (without overheating) all while giving me just a pinch of fall vibes. and i can even see myself wearing this print again in the spring as another transition piece!
i am anything but subtle when it comes to my love for the hamptons. i have been making the journey out east on my days off whenever i can for the last two years and i cannot believe another summer season is officially over! although, i have to admit, i am far from sad because i won't have to fight anyone for a seat on the train and it won't take me 5 hours to get home if i decide to drive...at least until next summer. but even with all of the hurdles to get out there during peak season, there is nothing like summer in the hamptons.
i'm no stranger to tailoring pieces to fit my body better. as i mentioned here, i sometimes go as far as basically having a whole new garment created! this dress hit the awkward sweet spot between being a maxi dress/gown and being a midi dress on me. you know the one that hits just above the ankle? not a great look to say the least. so my instant solution was to have it hemmed! easy right!? well it would have been if it weren't for the pesky embellishments and the tiered ruffles. so i made a split decision and had my tailor cut the entire bottom section off...aka 14 inches!
