For me, waking up in New York is the best feeling ever. Maybe it’s because when I’m there, I know that I’m on “vacation” doing what I love and don’t have a care in the world but I honestly think it’s deeper than that. Ever since I visited for the first time back in 2012, I’ve been stuck on it and it’s a liberating feeling I just can’t shake – and I don’t want to. Being here makes me happy on the inside and in my opinion, it reflected beautifully on the outside with this look…
After last night, I was more than ready to take on a full day in the city. My first 40/40 Club experience was more than I ever would’ve thought it to be and I can’t wait to show you guys the video! It was a night of style and black excellence to say the least… and some good drinks of course. Let’s just be glad I made it out this morning LOL.
Now that the day has started though, let’s talk about these glasses *inserts heart eye emoji*. I’ve had them all of two seconds and they are probably my new favorite pair already. You guys don’t have to admit it but I know you love them just as much as I do. If you read my last post, you can probably guess where I snagged them from but if you haven’t, just remember the name Superficial Clothing. Again I say, they are a one stop shop. I didn’t know what I would wear with them but I didn’t even care (as usual). All that mattered was the feeling I had that they would make something pop and that’s exactly what they did…and then some.
In the words of Kanye West, “Do you see this COAT?” If you don’t, I’m sorry for you. But if you do, I know you’ve probably done a couple double takes or wiped your eyes in disbelief but it really is this dope and the colors and are perfection. Originally, I ordered it to go with a different bottom (that changed three times) and even had it planned to be a top at one point but this way just happened to work out best.
The Masterpiece Jacket was part of my first order ever from Fashion Nova. I see the brand pretty much everywhere and on everybody but was never too inclined to try it myself. But between this jacket, a couple other items, and the super quick shipping, that all changed with one click. They came ALL the way through with only a week left before the trip and still 4 days to spare! They’re the real MVP for that.
Unfortunately, there’s not much of an exciting intro for the bottom half of the look but they are just as important nonetheless. The cream pencil skirt is one of my absolute faves from Forever 21 (I have it in two other colors) and always saves the day. The material is better than their known stretch cotton and the small ribs make the texture to die for. Because of its neutral tone, it really allowed the jacket to be the conversation piece and was just the right length to show off my Simmi boots that I actually snagged right after last Fashion Week in September but just never wore them but…. apparently they still came in handy.
Don’t worry, I know that was a mouthful but this alone was probably one of my best days in NY ever. It wasn’t too cold, I felt amazing, and I looked pretty foxy if I do say so myself. Just by reading this it may seem like I was all over the place with shopping but I have never felt more put together. Of course there’s videos and fashion show recaps on the way so stay tuned for that but also make sure you subscribe to the blog and follow me on Instagram @TheChloeBrand for all the behind the scenes and exclusives! Until next time guys.
