One of my favorite perks of being a fashion blogger is all of the events we get to go to during NYFW. One of those events that I always look forward to is the ShopStyle Social House. Not only do I get to catch up with fellow bloggers while sipping on rosé, there’s of course the oodles of freebies (read: upcoming giveaway for my awesome readers) and clothes for us to borrow from their huge closet. Just picture that scene from Devil Wears Prada where Andy raided the Vogue closet. A girl could not be any happier.
So admittedly, I grabbed this A.L.C. dress at the event thinking that it was a romper. The print and structure immediately got my attention, so I knew I had to have it. It wasn’t until I was trying it on that I discovered my error and thought “hold up, where’s the other pant hole.” But it turned out to be a happy mistake since dresses makes for a better Summer to Fall transition pieces than rompers. Also since this dress has high neck and long sleeve, it can probably be worn all through the winter with the addition of some tights.
By an awesome coincidence, the print of the dress also matches the color of my recently acquired Gigi New York crossbody bag. Well, it’s supposed to be a crossbody bag, but that’s not going to stop me from wearing it as a clutch.
