Vintage Vibes: Ruffled Polka Dot Midi Dress, Leopard Cat Eye Sunglasses and Indigo Faux Fur Trim Coat

With front row seats at both the Elie Tahari and Pamella Rolland Shows, Day 2 of New York Fashion Week required a standout “look.”

Day 2 of NYFW was an intense one with four shows, a backstage experience and of course events in between. Knowing I’d be sitting front row at two of my favorite designers’ shows upped the ante and I had to bring my A game. For my look, I wanted something classic and feminine with a bit of glamour, much like Tahari and Rolland’s designs.

To create my look for Day 2 of NYFW, I opted for a gorgeous gold on black polka dot, ruffled midi dress from Saloni that had just the right amount of vintage charm. To accentuate my waist with a little edge, I wore a studded black leather belt. For color, warmth and glamour, I draped a beautiful indigo hued wool coat with luxurious faux fur collar (purple and yellow are complimentary colors). For accessories, I wore leopard printed extreme cat eye sunglasses as an interesting juxtaposition against the polka dot print and a pair of oversized rectangular gold button earrings as to not distract from the mock neck of the dress. Finally, I completed the look with over the knee black suede boots as to not distract from the look.
