Would you believe me if I said this look wasn't preplanned for NYFW?
The thought shocking for those who've packed for the shows.
It was completely unplanned, but ended up being a perfect fit for the evening's activities.
The previous night we attended the Lulus party where I won this Black Swan dress out of a bubble gum ball machine of all places! Definitely a fun surprise!
Not having the chance to try it on at the event, I was immensely happy with the flattering fit and insane comfort built into this dress upon slipping it on back at our place. It's simple ruche wrapping enhances your body's best and most poppin' features.
I often shy away from materials that are clingy despite knowing they work better for my shape. What can I say? I love over-sized and baggy silhouettes. However, this dress has me questioning my own tastes... maybe fitted clothing should be more of my typical jam.
The jury is still out.
Either way its a great dress to add to my closet repertoire!
Another funny anecdote to mention is the braids in my hair were also unplanned! Earlier in the day I was invited to have my hair braided outside the shows. For some reason I agreed and was swiftly walked towards an SUV with its trunk door popped open.
After crawling into the back of the SUV (sounds way sketchier than it actually was I promise haha), I stepped out 20 minutes later with perfectly braided hair and a whole new look.
Probably the most random interaction I had all weekend, but worth the story and hair style!
