So quick post before I have to go to class!
This is the dress from H&M that I got in NY,
Very fem flirty romantic.
I'd love to pair it with my leather lace up ankle boots
and either a black cropped cardi or a leather jacket.
This is however paired with my (also) new Alexander Wang cropped sweater.
How do you like?

Lovin', Is What I Got.

Well, I didn't really get "Lovin" while I was in NY for two days, but I sure got a lot of clothes. Which I don't know about you but it was sure good enough for me. Let's review!

American Apparel -
Exibit A:

Exibit B: mesh top sweetheart geo-print dress (I'll post a pic later!)

Alexander Wang cropped knit turtleneck sweater -
   This one was my favorite. Made it to Opening Ceremony at Ace Hotel finally, sans celebrations but most importantly sans crowd! The people working there were very nice, they offered to hold my suitcase and already present shopping bag while I looked around. Very impressed with the staff. Polite inquiry on if I needed help finding anything or if I had questions. I liked looking around at what they had. Some items peaked my interest but not longer than a couple of glances. And then, I saw the sweater. Trust me when I say my wallet was halfway out of my purse before you could say "Alexander Wang". (I still tried it on, always err on the side of caution. I still loved it.) Only thing is I wish it was a small or xsmall rather than a medium. But hey, you take what you can get.

H&M -
Knit vest flyaway cardigan sweater
Spaghetti strap ruched mini dress
(Pictures to come!!)

Surprisingly, I didn't get anything from Topshop. I mean, I typicaly do, but it was getting towards the end of my shopping excursion and everything I saw reminded me of what I had already gotten, cept not as good. Tried three things on, wasn't impressed. Especially for the prices. Although I am disappointed I didn't take advantage of their year round 10% student discount...

I did find a FABULOUS pair of denim from What Comes Around Goes Around. Those however are being shipped to me, so I'm gonna have to wait on showing you those. Sadly.

Quick stop at Opening Ceremony yielded no results. I wasn't exactly into it because I had already found what I was looking for. And I couldn't find any remaining Alex Wang items - those get me every time. The staff also seemed pretty exhausted, which is understandable. I was relieved when staffer Lizzy offered to hold my bags (must be an Opening Ceremony thing, niice). There was a Rodarte display up, which was mad cool. Noticed a lot of new faces since the last time I was there. And yeah pretty much. Good times in nyc!

3 Words - Fashion's Night Out

Yeah maybe you've been seeing too many, but yes, I am doing a Fashion's Night Out post.

HOWEVER, I will admit. I kind of missed it.
Class till 3, an hour to get my shit together, 4 1/2 hour bus over to NY, 1 hour to get to my hotel, 1 hour waiting for my trusty shenanigan partner in crime to get to where I was.

I still thought I could get in on at least one store. So, closest to my hotel was Opening Ceremony at the Ace Hotel on Broadway. We get in line, it wraps around the corner. Meh, we still got time.
We make it to around the corner, some guy lookin' all official says "we close in 50 min, so, not all of you will make it". Some chick screams, "it's not worth it!!" The line now looks like this:

Now, while it didn't look to promising, there really weren't many alternatives at the time. All the other hot spots were a good few minutes away, even via subway. 
And well, we didn't get in. But, we did get free ice cream- 

Sooo, we decided to take the T around and find something to do. 

Aaaannd came upon this: 

(we didn't plan this, I swear. the red and white was just what fate had in store ;] )

Hope you had a fantastic Fashion's Night Out!!! (of those of you who actually made it)
I'd love to hear stories! 
Hit me upp!
