Chic & Quick: Arden B.

This week I tried to make it my priority to add an item or two to my work clothes closet. Work clothes are always interesting because depending on where you work you need to be able "make it work" accordingly. This usually entails purchasing lots of basics, some key pieces and accessories. Let's not forget the shoe game HAS to accommodate the fit right. This usually consists of a pair of classic work pumps, a stylish pair of after work pumps and the token flats of the day. Work clothes definitely come with their own set of problems, but the good thing is you can, usually, find a piece to add to the work clothes closet at any store. Today I randomly thought about Arden B. It's such a chic cute store that sells some key pieces that work perfectly for the working fashionista. 

Some cute finds....

This is an adorable dress in a bold color. The fact that its a work dress only adds to its appeal

Name: Origami Scoop Neck Dress
Color: Teal
Price: $69.00
Sizes: XS - L

This tunic is perfect for fall to wear with a pair of slacks or jeans for that chic casual Friday

Name: Lurex Stripe Tunic
Color: Black
Price: $39.00
Sizes: XS - L

Skirts, skirts and more skirts. Being a former tomboy I used to think skirts were the devil however, this fall there are so many trendy and cute skirts that paired with some opaque tights/fish nets and some classy pumps will take any work outfit from corporate to fashionable working girl

Name: Lurex Bandage Mini Skirt
Color: Silver
Price: $49.00
Sizes: XS - L

Now for a little treat....

This dress is just sassy and girly, yet romantic and trendy. This piece can be worn to different events this season without breaking your pockets. The only issue with this dress it that not everyone would be able to see its full potential. Thinking outside the box is necessary for this find

Name: Cascading Rose Satin Dress
Color: Blush
Price: $89.00 sale price: $62.30
Sizes: XS - L

A black cutout number is a sizzling choice. Done right this dress says...Fabulous 
(in my opinion ofcourse)

Name: Cutout Rhinestone Halter Dress
Color: Black
Price: $89.00
Sizes: XS - L

Fashion's Night Out Recap

Fashion's Night Out was definitely a success if I do say so myself. This was my first year attending the event and it was a cute-fun-fashion party in the streets of New York City. I am going to recap my experience that night, but first let's go back to the middle of the week when NYFW kicked off. 

On Wednesday, I attended an interesting fashion presentation for designer Emilie Jerard titled "Vamp". Emilie is a native of New Jersey and has a passion for design and creating alternative pieces. Her recent collection shared an interesting aesthetic of vamp and urban flair, with a hint of rebellious sex appeal. The presentation was held in the chic confines of the Bryant Park Hotel and a number of fashion socialites were in attendance, including Beyonce's own stylist, who was passing through to show Jerard support. 

The cohesion of the collection (from hair to makeup) was implemented perfectly and overall the presentation made a statement. Emilie Jerard presents a twist in her pieces and I am sure we will be seeing more of her and her designs in the near future. 

Now, fast fwd to Friday....

Fashion's Night Out was crowded with fabulous people excited to store hop. My area of choice started with Soho, but ended in the Meat Packing District. I hit Phillip Lim 3.1 first with my fellow fashionista and before we knew it we had a little crew of people that met up with us and the night took off. I could not even begin to tell you how many stores we went in and out of mixing and mingling and let's not forget having a cocktail or two. A lot of the stores had cute little presentations, giveaways and photo areas set up for the guests. Throughout the night in Soho there were several celebrity appearances such as Pharrell arriving on a float down West Broadway and Kanye walking with a crowd of fans down Wooster street. It was definitely a sight to see especially since Soho was packed like the West Indian parade was happening all over again. Let's not even get into the crowd that was out and about in the Meat Packing District. Packed was an understatement. The crowd was even more fabulous and it was truly a huge party in the streets. I heard that last year's FNO was slightly better than this years, but I'm assuming it was because last year's was a bit more organized and it did not have the same amount of stores on the agenda. Ten times more stores jumped on the band wagon this year so chaos was prevalent, but I still adored it. I honestly, had a great relaxed chill time with my friends and enjoying what the designers presented for us. 

Now off to Lincoln Center for a show and mingling. More updates to come luvs.
