Green Eye Makeup and Polkadot Dress for NYFW

February 21, 2017 - 87 Comments

It seems like just the other day I was getting on a plane to New York and now Fashion Week is already over! Because every day was so packed with shows and shoots, the week flew by, and before I knew it I was at one of my last shows — Michael Kors. I was so happy when their team reached out and offered to dress me for their show again! I wanted to do something really fun so I chose this Minnie Mouse-esque green polka dot dress (similar and affordable here and here). One of my favorite details is the relaxed bow tied at the neck — this dress is so playful, but also easy to pare down with a classic navy coat (similar here and here) and sweater vest. When I went in for the fitting, I already had my fishnet tights on as well as these white Topshop croc boots that I’ve been wearing a lil’ too much (I also wore them with this outfit) and was too lazy to take off. When I tried on the dress though, both the MK team and I thought it looked really good with the outfit, so I just keep them in rotation. Now that I look at the photos, I’m not sure if I really love the whole look with the tights. I honestly think it looked better in person than in the photos… Ever happen to you? When you think your outfit is slaying and then you see a photo of yourself in that outfit and it’s not as dope as you thought it was? Anyways… I still love this outfit nonetheless, just not as much with the fishnets. I mean, I can’t always slay… plus, the fishnets, as little as they might be, did somewhat keep me warm…er. Oh, at least my Song of Style x Gentle Monster US 101 sunnies complete my look! The team was also kind enough to gift me this adorable Instax camera, which I used to capture snaps of the event. I love polaroids because they’re small enough to where I can keep them in my purse of wallet. I have so many photos on my phone, but it’s so nice to have physical copies of photos I can carry everywhere with me!

The biggest thank you to Benjamin and my Laura Mercier family for doing my makeup throughout New York Fashion Week! I know you might look at this dress and think, “Woah there is a lot going on here!” but I think this just goes to show you that styling goes a long way! I always love trying new things and having fun with my outfits, rather than sticking to the same thing all the time. I even did something new with my makeup for this look! I usually stick to a natural makeup look using neutral shades (I especially love brown and bronze tones), but I knew I was wearing this standout dress so I wanted to match my eye makeup with it! To get the look, use an eyeliner brush to draw a winged line on your lash line with Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in “Peacock!”How amazing is Nicholas getting with his photography skills? Usually I have to position him and direct him but now he just gets me! I love this street shot he took of me! Not going to lie, we had to wait a bit in the cold until the car cleared up.
