When I got an invitation to the Bluefly/Project Runway finale party in my inbox, I couldn’t believe my eyes! It was hosted by former contestant, Laura Bennett, at her Manhattan apartment, and this season’s contestant Anthony Williams. I was super excited. But then I thought what the heck am I going to wear? Dressing for a group of fashion designers, PR mavens (Kelly Cutrone was there!) and fashionistas was going to be a challenge. That day I decided to channel my inner Beyonce (you’ll notice I ‘channel’ a lot of celebrities) and pulled out this Catherine Malandrino jeweled dress. I first saw it on Beyonce and when it went on sale at Gilt last year, I had to have it!
I paired it with another Gilt find – a cropped leather bomber (also by Catherine Malandrino). Even though it’s not the warmest jacket I own, I love the way it fits.
I’m realizing that almost my entire outfit is from online sales. I picked up the ring from Gilt too.
The necklace is from a local designer I saw while doing a Sex and the City tour. I loved the rich color of the agate stone paired with the brass gold wire wrapping and chain.
Ahhh, my recently purchased Balenciaga that I’m so in love with.
What I wore: Leather bomber: Catherine Malandrino, Dress: Catherine Malandrino, Necklace: Nella Allen NYC, Ring: Kendra Scott, Bag: Balenciaga, Tights: random, Shoes: Christian Louboutin
