black and white in TriBeCa

by haley sherif

Yesterday was one of the busier days I’ve had in a while. It started with a leisurely morning of running a few errands, before I headed downtown to meet a friend at Blue & Cream. She fell in love with an IRO blazer I had recently purchased and needed one for herself, so I threw on R13 denim, a white tee, an oversized Helmut Lang knit, and a Smythe jacket, adding a necklace and Pamela Love ring as accessories (a friend told me the other day I never were jewelry and it’s true. New Year’s Resolution number 100 – wear more!).

We had a fun time shopping, after which we grabbed lunch at Gemmas with a few friends, after which I grabbed the fifth coffee of the day with another friend before heading back uptown to change for the night’s events. My friend was performing comedy in TriBeCa and a bunch of us were going with plans to go out afterwards, so I knew I wanted to wear something cute and fun, and the weather has been close to summer like so I definitely knew a dress would be the appropriate choice. I settled on an IRO black and white  t-shirt dress which scrunches at the waist, Isabel Marant boots, and a Yigal leather. I accessorized with a necklace also from Isabel Marant which I received for Christmas. It was a favorite among the girls and both the chic and comfortable choice!
