Charming NYC

For those who weren't already following along, I just returned from a whirlwind trip to NYC earlier this week!  I had the honor of hosting an event at the Charming Charlie flagship store on 5th Avenue & I can't say enough good things about it.  If you live in the area or have travel plans that will take you into the city, I highly recommend stopping into the store.  It is so beautifully laid out (everything organized by color, of course) & the two-story space provides so many styles to choose from.  I visited the store early in the afternoon to select some pieces to wear for the evening and I had such a hard time narrowing down my choices!

The Charming Charlie Delicates line is my favorite because they are dainty pieces
perfect for wearing alone or layering to create a unique look

I loved the pairing of this knit sweater dress & this cozy vest seen above

I picked this dress because I loved the flattering fit & flare shape + the crochet lace detail gives it such a high-end feel. Every woman needs a classic little black dress that she can wear to holiday parties, out for dinner or on a special date night!  They have so many gorgeous party dresses in stock right now - I also love this red onethis black lace style & this shimmery metallic number - all perfect for the season!  I kept my jewelry fairly simple & decided on dangly earrings, a slim stack of bracelets & a few sparkly rings.  My intern, Abbey, also picked out this pretty lace dress & this faux fur vest to wear (so cute paired together with booties for a daytime look).

This fur collar looked so cozy & chic (it also comes in black)

This Elisa Pentagon Necklace was also featured in the December issue of Redbook Magazine

I want to say thank you to everyone who came out - it was wonderful to meet you in person and help you shop!  It was a really special evening & I love knowing that 10% of the proceeds from sales went to the K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers. They are helping match up brands & retailers with local charities to donate products to women & children in need. You can learn more about the great work they are doing here and, through December 31st, you can make a donation through Charming Charlie that will directly help this cause.  I am so honored to be working with a brand who is dedicated to giving back to the community and is truly making a difference in women's lives.
