Got a little done up for the Socialyte Awards last week, held at The Box in the Lower East Side. I was so honored to receive the Industry Choice Award! I wore this simple but dramatic pseudo-robe dress from Jenni Kayne’s fall collection that I’m extremely sure I didn’t tie up in the manner intended. I always have to have something slightly off don’t I. There were, entertainingly enough for a blogger event, no photos allowed inside the venue so these were shot around the Bowery after heading out.

play by play at phillip lim

Arriving at Skylight at Moynihan Station, quite the beautiful traffic vortex, this place. It’s one of the more photogenic show venues in New York, what with the historic New York vibe contrasting against the stark industrial interior. Very important to set up coordinates of exactly where you’re going to meet your mode of transport afterwards otherwise you’ll probably perish wandering forlornly up and down 9th Avenue. Well, there are worse ways to go. You’ll at least have lots of company in the same boat.


See me equipped with my Sony Xperia Z tablet, my latest toy to keep me updated on the go. It sold itself on waterproof.


I really hope there was no almond butter on my face.


My pal Andrew Bevan escorted me in, which was my favorite. And hey, nice nude briefcase, Andrew, I like that.


Also my favorite was seeing beautiful Marie who I last met up with in Tokyo over the summer.


Fray in the front row.


Some of my favorite looks. Everything stiff and boxy is appealing to me right now, so that sheath dress is conversing with my soul. Same goes for the Lim-ified trench and duffle.


Sneaking out of the vortex.


Last shots in this outfit before dinner in the West Village. And finally the outfit details – Acne Mape biker jacket, Robert Rodriguez top, Étoile Isabel Marant foldover skirt, Céline wedges, Ray-ban Wayfarers, and Valentino monogrammed wrist clutch. Overall A+ afternoon.

A good chunk of my beauty routine is NARS, specifically the Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park, Nico blush (least offensive and most subtle sheen award), and pretty much all shades of The Multiple. I haven’t had too much experience with their foundations but they sent me their latest formula, the Radiant Cream Compact Foundation to try out and I haven’t let it too far out of my reach since, and not just cause I like staring at the compact now and then all oversized and luxurious. It goes on feeling almost like a moisturizer and the finish is dewy and light, perfect for the 100% of us that are deathly afraid of looking all matte like movie vampires. Check it out here!

Holding on tight to this most pillowy and sweet of clutches – Burberry’s latest crush style is the iconic design house at its most playful. That gold heart doubles as a conversation starter, I found out pretty quickly. Shot in Soho by loveliness Zanita on a gloomy morning in Soho.

More from New York, a very different and 97% more polished silhouette for me but this top makes everything feel alright. Are there things that are cut more precisely and perfectly than this skirt? NO.
