To kick off New York Fashion Week, my first evening was a night celebrating style, friendship, and of course great shoes. The Ann Taylor team hosted a beautiful event at the Gramercy Park Hotel. We started off with cocktails and lite bites, then listened to a panel discussion with Amber Venz Box (President & Co-Founder of rewardStyle), Alli Webb (Founder of Drybar), and Stephanie Nass (owner, Chefanie Sheets) sharing their tips from business to friendship. Afterwards, we all sat down for an intimate dinner, and enjoyed the company of great women in the industry.
I've always been a huge fan of Ann Taylor, so it was such a treat to be a part of this special evening. I was so excited to get to wear pieces from the new collection, including these gorgeous tan suede block heel pumps! I'm obsessed with the gold detail on the heel. For me, I have always found amazing styles at Ann Taylor that are classic but still have a trendy detail I can't resist. The new selection of shoes are the ultimate #shoegoals. And not only do they have great shoes, the apparel styles are eye-catching. Take for example this black leather jacket, sure I have a few already, but I'm loving the added ruffle detail to make something that is normally a little tough, more feminine. The raw edge step-hem jeans are so comfortable, and this bell-sleeve sweater is incredibly soft. These pieces worn together or separately are perfect items for your wardrobe.
Thanks Ann Taylor for such a great night!
