NYFW. Today marks the first day of New York Fashion Week and of course, the streets are covered in ice. Ran a little late to my first show this morning (cabs during NYFW = nightmare) and probably looked like Bambi on ice while sliding my way through the crowds outside Lincoln Center, but thankfully, I made it there on time and in one piece!

Hopefully I’ll get a couple of minutes this afternoon to shoot todays outfit but until then, here’s a picture we snapped the other day. This menswear-inspired tuxedo dress from McQ Alexander McQueen is one of the latest additions to my wardrobe and I absolutely love the structured tailoring, so sleek! Played around with the silhouette and layered the dress over a pair of pants and actually really liked the result. Turns out, dresses over pants aren’t actually that bad!

  1. I think tuxedo-style dresses led themselves especially well to layering over trousers. Really like this look on you paired with the sleek bun.

    Looking forward to see what you get up to at NYFW!
