I actually wore this look wayyyy back in May for an incredible black tie birthday party for my friends James, Grace, and Rich over at the Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel. I hadn't been to the bar prior to that event, and WOW... I can't stop frequenting it now for the intimate venue, great drinks, and incredible collection of original artwork (hellooooo Damien Hirst). It's not a place I go every week, but when I need to feel a little fancy, it's perfect. So adding a dressy LBD is the perfect touch!
My good (and insanely talented) friend Allen Daniel came to visit NYC with a DJ he was touring with recently, and we met up for coffee at Blue Bottle and bagels in Chelsea Market. Decided to snap some photos before I had to head to work and these wonderful shots are the outcome!
