Life is all about stepping outside of your comfort zone, taking risks, and climbing mountains. It’s so easy for us to take a step back, never venture further than the safety of the sidewalk and blend in. DON’T! See the world and do things you want. You only need to take that first step and the rest is gold.
Like this dress… I don’t wear yellow. You can check my wardrobe! But this dress spoke to me. I don’t know if it’s because it is definitely a warm fall tone, or that it sorta reminded me of Beyonce’s Hold Up look, but I felt like I needed to swallow my eeek and just go for it. And to my surprise, I actually love it.
In the heart of NYC, Times Square seemed like the perfect place to immerse myself in for this dress. Not only is it a bold statement, but it’s part of the Saint x Sinner‘s State of Mine Collection that I mentioned in In a NY State of Mine with Saint x Sinner. That featured a bold red piece that doubled as both a vest and a dress! So versatile.
If you’re going to go for something, why not go big? Times Square is one of the busiest places in the city, especially these infamous red stairs – so what better way than to stand out in a sea of many?
I particularly love the flowiness of this dress. It’s very easy to move in (not body hugging). The sleeves are so adorable, making the look of bodice sweeter even with a plunging v-line. The buttons add another cute adornment. I love how the dress includes a semi high-low style, as those were a huge hit a few years back.
Paired with my Sam Edelman lace-ups and a few of my staple gold accessories, I walked the streets of NY.
