Embellished Black Dress

Calypso 1

It’s raining today but the weekend her in New York was as sunny as could be. A lot of very cool things happened over the last two days including this Calypso dress that is my new favorite article of clothing because it feels like pajamas but looks boho chic.

On Friday night I met my friend Adina for a salad and fries at Berry Park in Williamsburg. We turned the night into an impromptu double date followed by Anel and I rushing home to start the first season of Orange is the New Black (amazzeeeee!). Saturday, my sister and I started the day off with Soul Cycle and green smoothies followed by hours of picnicking and laying out in the park. That night I went to my friend’s bachelorette party at Terra Wine Bar (cutest wine bar and Italian restaurant in the West Village).

Yesterday, I worked all day for Nourish at the Greenwich Polo match. We had fun shmoozing with attendees but I was most excited to be hanging out again with Kiel & Sarah as well as the Sail to Sable girls who had a booth right next door!

The day ended with the most amazing discovery of all time. Victoria and I were featured in the New York Times Sunday style section wearing this outfit! We also got a quick shout out in Bill Cunningham’s video on Friday. Seeing myself in the paper was so surreal. I think I’m going to frame it. Is that lame??
