LOVERS + FRIENDS excusez-moi sequin jacket | KENZO eiffel tower tee (sold out - similar) | KIMBERLY TAYLOR pleated leather skirt (similar) | ALEXANDER WANG natasha wedges (similar) | PRADA baroque sunglasses | 3.1 PHILIP LIM colorblocked pashli satchel | DKNY black tights | RINGS ECLECTIC cocktail ring

This outfit, that I wore to the Jack Roger's Blogger Social, is one of my favorite looks from my week in New York. When I was packing I tried to stick to pieces that were versatile and could easily be swapped in and out. For instance, the leather skirt from this look also worked with my Markus Lupfer sweater that I wore on the first day of IFBCON. I also paired the same sweater with the above sequin jacket for the Monique Lhuillier show and a Glamour Cats Event. I was especially glad that I had packed an array of versatile pieces when my trip was unexpectedly extended by Nemo. I was lucky to be able to produce several more new outfits without having to go shopping.

  5. I love that sweater! And I totally agree–I'm learning (I suck at packing) that packing for trips is all about pieces you can get a lot of mileage out of!
