I think I finally figured out why I didn’t survive in New York City. And the reason why, my friends, is my lifelong desire to avoid all-black ensembles. I get it, black is ‘chic’ and all, but bright colors and bold prints have always been my jam. I most likely blinded every New Yorker I came in contact with with how loud my ensembles were. Not sorry.

I was headed out to an event where all the girls were required to wear LBDs and I realized. I don’t have a go-to LBD. Madness, really. This Topshop Drape Front Dress solved my problem real quick. I’ve worn in dressed down with sandals, dressed up with heels, and its really been on repeat these last few weeks. I really love brunching in this number as well because it is food baby friendly. This dress also comes in other colors too, which I may or may not snatch up. If you like something, buy it in every color, right?

  4. I totally agree, buy it in all colors. Especially if you’re tall, and somethings fits great.

    I live in LBDs – I would buy this one in a heartbeat. I like the bag that you paired it with! I usually wear black dresses with tortoiseshell glasses as well 🙂

  25. What an absolutely gorgeous ensemble! As a current New Yorker, half of my closet is black, the other is white, with a sprinkling of burgundy and navy lol. Personally, I love how loud your outfits are!
