An Evening Look

IMG_0056

I am absolutely obsessed with jumpers this summer. I stumbled upon this little beauty in H&M of course; I think I’m a bit obsessed with this store as well. You can always find something cute to wear in here, even when you’re not necessarily looking for anything.  I wanted a nice look for a dinner but mainly wanted to focus on comfort yet staying stylish at the same time.  I’d been eyeing this jumper a few times and figured I would try it on to see how it actually fit.  It was perfect! Wide legged, made with the perfect material to keep cool on a summer night and was the perfect length with the right shoe.  This piece is something I feel you can wear for any occasion and can be dressed up or down, depending on where you’re going.  I paired the jumper with BCBG sandals that I hadn’t worn in quite some time but went perfectly with this.  With black, you can always add a pop of color with a shoe or accessory so I chose a hot pink sandal lined with black to compliment this outfit.  Dinner date ready!

Time for the gala

 

IMG_9475I had the pleasure of attending the Manhattan Theater Club Spring Gala on Monday evening at the renowned Cipriani on 42nd.  I heard so many great things about this venue and, after getting invited, I was so anxious to actually get there and see what exactly the night had in store.  I had a few dress options that I could of worn but decided on this little number from BCBG.  Daring to be a bit different and somewhat bold, I opted for this lime color for my dress versus the typical black, navy or other neutral colors.  There was a very nice cocktail reception beforehand and this allowed for great mini photo shoots.  The decor of this place was absolutely stunning.  The centerpieces, linen, dinnerware, I mean everything, was amazing!  The gala also included wonderful performances from some of the biggest Broadway musicals, including the Color Purple, Jersey Boys and Motown.   I was excited to see one of the cast members from Orange is the New Black, Danielle Brooks, star as lead for the Color Purple. Impressive vocals for sure!  To say the least, the gala definitely exceeded my expectations.  It was great to be among those so passionate about their crafts and to see such great performances.  Let’s not forget the actual dinner.  The star of the meal would have to be the short rib for me.  I have nothing but great things to say about this event at Cipriani and it was definitely a NYC night to remember.  Check out pics of the event below.
