I was in New York this past weekend for a fabulous vacation filled with shopping, friends, parties, polo and of course, a martini [or six]. I thought I'd show you guys the outfits I wore on my trip along with a few pictures :)
The polo match might have been on Saturday, but that didn't stop Veuve Clicquot from welcoming me when I arrived on Thursday- thank you, thank you Alicia && Cristy for the love and champagne!
Speaking of love- I stopped by my agency Thursday afternoon and was given that amazing grey diamond skull ring. I was joking all day that they were like our championship team rings [I say I'm joking, but I'm really not. Combine that with the champagne and it's obvious why I kept rapping Championship Pop Bottles all weekend] The site selling that ring [Plukka] discounts their rate every time someone purchases the piece of jewelry- leaving the final rate you're charged with lower every time someone buys! Crazy considering the final price could be around $100 when it's worth over $1,000. I can't keep up with all of these crazy new sites!
I can tell the biggest question on everyone's mind right now is '...wait. Day 1? Did you REALLY go to the airport dressed like that?' and yes. I did. I'm usually on early morning flights && I dress for the entire day because I typically have to be somewhere directly after [unless it's 2am, but I have yet to take a red eye]. I try to only travel with carry on luggage, so dresses like this are perfect to fold and keep in small places. Travel tip? Wear the shoes that would take up the most room in your suitcase to the airport. Allowed me to have my comfy combat boots without taking up any of the space :)
Picture taken at Le Bain from the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic pre-party Friday night. This is the night I FINALLY got to bust out my fully sequined All Saints dress. I had been looking at their different, sparkly dresses FOREVER and I finally decided to splurge and buy myself one. I'm worth it.
The party was fun and so was the after party [and by 'after party', I mean, 'after the party I can't wait to EAT! party']. We went to one of my favorite NYC spots- Cafeteria! YOU MUST GO if you're in town and have never been! My recommendations? The mac n cheese spring rolls and fried chicken n waffles :) [omg. I'm dying typing. Can I go back now, please?]
Ready for the Polo Classic on Saturday morning! I'm on the left wearing this gorgeous black and white dress from Nanette Lepore while my sister is busy fascinating on the right [Yes. We turned fascinator into a verb. Ex: Why don't you go fascinate in a corner?]. She's also wearing a gorgeous lace coat from Zara/totally dominating the classy preppy dress code.
All dressed up and ready to boat! The polo match was actually in New Jersey, so here's a picture of the amazing view on the ride over.
Pictures from Polo with a few my favorites :)
As usual, my trip to New York was nothing short of amazing [slightly disastrous, but it wouldn't have been MY trip if it didn't involve, you know- falling down a ferry, epic sunburns and an inside joke turned tattoo] [not mine!][yolo, polo]
And, if you were wondering- no, I did not fly home in that dress. I flew home in no makeup, in my boyfriend's sweats, and I felt just as fabulous :)
