As glamorous as fashion week may seem, it is equally as draining. Usually by the 3rd or 4th day the fuel in the tank starts running quite low, so you can only imagine how it feels by the 7th straight day of no sleep. The night before my last day in NY, I was sitting in front of my closet, at The Royalton hotel, not having a clue what to wear to the Ralph Lauren show. There’s absolutely nothing more frustrating than attempting to style a look when all you really want to do is cuddle up in bed & sleep. I knew I wanted to wear this voluminous skirt, but finding the perfect pairing seemed impossible with my limited wardrobe that I brought to NY (this is why I NEVER travel light as seen HERE). My options were limited, and decided to move on to the only dress I hadn’t worn yet, but came to the conclusion that a mini backless dress was too casual to wear to a fabulous Ralph lauren show. It was then I realized I found my perfect pairing! I layered my voluminous skirt over this risque backless dress which ended up being my NYFW finale look.
I’ve always been drawn to voluminous pieces, especially skirts, but I find that they are not the easiest to work with. The key in pulling off a voluminous circle skirt, such as this one HERE, HERE, & HERE, is to keep the top slim & fitted.
So i guess the moral of the story is don’t give up on something (or someone) that you love so much, in my case this grey skirt, think outside of the box until you find the perfect match!
