Thrifted Loeffler Randall boots, Forever 21 Skirt, Equipment Top, Zara Trench, Balenciaga Bag, Miss Sixty Sunglasses. Bracelets: Hermes, Vintage, C&C California. Necklace c/o Bauble Bar
These pictures were taken on Thursday, prior to brunch at Balthazar (one of my favorites in NYC) with Alicia from Cheetah is the New Black & Krystal from This Time Tomorrow, who I was SO happy to finally meet in person. We instantly hit it off and spent the next few hours engaged in non-stop conversation, shopping and of course, taking some photos for the blog. Thanks to Alicia, who took these photos for me!
Oh, and I realize that I have one sleeve up and one down in the last photo – debated on whether I should put it up or not, but since it is reality, up the picture went!

    I was going to buy that skirt, but I thought it a bit too short. You look fantastic in it, and those python print shoes stole my heart.
