The Reformation Jumpsuit – MAC Lady Danger Lipstick – DKNY Bag
The interesting thing about international Fashion Weeks is that all of your favourite people in the industry are suddenly within walking distance. Sara and I spent a morning chatting to the J.Crew team at their expansive Time Warner store, and reuniting with gorgeous Candice – followed by a sunny Wholefoods breakfast in Central Park just opposite.
Last time I was here in NYC, the park was grey, bare and freezing cold. Clearly, it’s quite the different story in September, so Candice kindly did a couple of snaps for me. Because I’ve been working so much over these few weeks in New York, I haven’t had the chance to tick off some fun Central Park Activities – hiring a bike, picnicking in the sun, paddle-boating, ice-cream… but all the more reason to come back right? Not long now, dear Apple.
But back to a topic of utmost importance: this killer of a jumpsuit. The story is that I tried it on last time I was in Los Angeles, but was just a little hesitant over the price-tag (poor student am I). I got all the way home to my hotel in North Hollywood, and woke up the next morning with this baby on my mind. Several trains, buses and a 5km walk later (I was without a car: LA rookie error), the sales girl thought I was out of my mind, and I was one awesome jumpsuit richer.
On the humid NYFW day I wore this too, the breathing space and gossamer-light silk could not have been more welcome. Had the print been in any other colour, it would surely be boxed in to night-time and event wear (though I’m looking at the other colours as we speak) – but honestly, who can say no to this onesie?
A happy salad of colour never hurt New York City – though I don’t think Sydney is ready for this yet. I’d been wearing it under tees as wide-leg pants, or under skirt as a sneaky peek top.
Anyway – I have to get back to working on an exciting interview I did earlier this week – somebody who I’d call fashion royalty. Any guesses?
