BLue LAgoon

Joie dress, Anya Hindmarch clutch, Brian Atwood heels, Lia Sophia by Dani Stahl necklace, vintage Indian collar necklace, Essie Lollipop nails.

A couple of months ago I went to an incredible Joie editor event thrown by the amazing girls at BlueStripe Pr (I spoke about here). We celebrated the beginning of summer, our love of Sunday brunch, and because we are very lucky girls, we got to pick out some to-die-for clothing.

Ever since this bright, aqua-blue Joie frock arrived I have been wearing it nonstop. The color screams summer time and makes me look like I have a little bit of a tan, even though I don’t. Last night I layered some sparkles and combined different shades of blue for my night with M. Of all the fabulous things about New York, I think I love most that you can get as dressed up as much as you like and no one thinks twice.

Last night my good friend Lauren and I got in to my jewelry drawer (after three years of working as the jewelry editor at Elle Accessories my collection is quite extensive, to say the least). I convinced her to let me style her and she gave me total creative freedom. The result:  a huge departure from the self-described “secretary chic” look she usually goes for. And I have to admit, I quite liked the new edgy Lauren creation I put together. Granted, she vetoed my five-inch wedges, claiming she couldn’t walk, and before we departed for Raoul’s (steak frites and martinis anyone?),  she toned down the outfit by putting back on her ballet flats.

Hey, you can’t blame a girl trying…
