After a long time away and no matter how much fun it was, it’s always nice to get back home.
I certainly had a great time in Sofia, but I had to face the reality of everyday life in NYC and I was so excited to do so. I had a lot of things on my calendar – tons of work was waiting for me, had to catch up on some shopping ( because I didn’t shop at all while away) and of course a date night with my husband. I needed an outfit that will take me from day to night without stopping home to change. I had the photoshoot with the amazing Jemima Richards already scheduled and decided to take full advantage of my day. Do my work in the morning, shoot my outfit and run to meet with my husband for dinner.
For the shopping part, luckily the Marc Jacobs sale was happening the day after I came back and I got there at the perfect time to score some super cute bags. When I say perfect, here is what happened. I go to the sale and looked around, but was very underwhelmed by the selection. The collection of stuff that I love was still very expensive ( I saw a denim jacket 90% off for $600.00 ) and the rest too dated and not exciting. Then I got to the bags table where the discounts were 85% for bags and 90% for SLG. At this exact moment they started to bring the Heart bags in two colors and also boxes with wallets. The good part is that for some reason they had the bags as SLG and the discount was 90% so the price was $29.50 down from $295.00. They were so cute I couldn’t decide between black and nude so I have to buy both. But at this price who can blame me. They sold out so fast that if I was a minute late I would not be able to get it.
The day of the shoot I left for work with my LV and later changed to the Heart bag that was the element that tied this outfit together. When looking at this outfit, everybody assumed that this was a dress, but actually they are two separate pieces from two different brands. My skirt is H&M and I had it for some time now and the top ( CeCe by Cynthia Steffe) is a sample sale find for only $5.00 (originally $89.00 )
My booties are Karen Millen, you know I own tone of them because I buy them so cheap, usually between $10-$30, this particular ones were $20.00
My necklace is from one of the most epic sample sales I have ever been to where all the jewelry were only $1.00 and my earrings from another one for $5.00 The total of my outfit is $69.00 when the retail is close to $900.00
The whole day I was getting compliments on my look, the red was getting tons of attention. It was the perfect day to night outfit.
