Day 1 of New York Fashion Week was a balmy 34 degrees at its height, which meant outdoor photos and some open jackets for styling purposes here and there were okay/tolerable. Going forward, with snow on the way and single digits temps predicted for the next few days, let me give you a full disclosure: I will be wearing TWO pairs of pants, and prioritizing being inside quite a bit! I’m going to dip inside to take as many photos as possible, so apologies in advance for eschewing an idyllic Lincoln Center backdrop so that my fingers and nose don’t turn a ghastly shade of red or translucent white! Other than that, the next week will certainly be a test in dressing stylishly in extreme weather, and fingers crossed for optimal health and warmth over the next seven days!
In this look for Day 1, I heavily played up one of my favorite color schemes, graphic black and white, for a flash of print and color without going overboard. Not surprisingly, layering is a key component to surviving the winter, so when purchasing this dress, I made sure that thick tights and a turtleneck could rest comfortable underneath. And of special note, I have to point out the black faceted ring on my right hand (pictured below), as it reminds me of the phrase “technology at your fingertips,” which can be revised to “technology on your fingers!”
The Ringly Stargaze Tech Ring in Black Onyx which came my way from Shopbop to test out during New York Fashion Week syncs with your phone via Bluetooth and an app, in which you can designate different colors and the amount of flashes that will project from the ring when you receive a call, email, text, and calendar notifications. You can specify the details, along your contacts, for example making your ring flash blue when your mom is calling. Pretty cool, right?
