Winter to Spring Topper – Lafayette 148 NY

February 20, 2019

I wore this boss babe Lafayette 148 NY outfit for the second half of my Day 2 at New York Fashion Week. Do I look ready to take on the world? I felt like it!

The Pieces

Sensational Stripe Alexander Topper

This ultra chic jacket has a slightly raised striped pattern with a Peter Pan collar and relaxed A-line fit. I felt like a million bucks in this and photographers followed me down the street. Seriously! When the wind catches it, it billows out and looks even more fabulous!

Nouveau Crepe Abra Skirt

This luxe little skirt is one you’ll have for years. A-line and knee-length, it’s perfect for the office. The crepe is heavenly and totally lined. The contrast white stitching adds extra interest.

Fine Gauge Merino Modern Turtleneck

A perfect little well-made turtleneck, soft and warm, and available in gray and navy as well as black. (Shh … it’s even on sale!)

Deco Gypsy Hoop Earring

Inspired by the Art Deco movement, these perfect statement earrings are architectural as well as having a bit of crystal sparkle.

Everything Else

The suede knee high boots were a local DSW find. The oversized sunglasses are by Quay. My Alexander Wang Roxy Bucket Bag finishes off the look!

Thanks to Cathy of Bay Area Fashionista for playing photographer for the first group of shots!

This last shot is by the fabulous NYC photographer Denton Taylor. It was his idea to get a shot in front of the fire house … isn’t it perfect? If you’re observant, you’ll notice I have a different pair of boots in this shot. Can you believe that I just couldn’t decide which pair I liked best so I wore the slouchy suede pair for awhile and then switched to theses studded ankle boots? Which do you like better?

When I walked to the Nonie runway show, street photographers took my picture, and I even got interviewed by Spotlyte about my beauty routine. Always a compliment! And since they asked, I’m wearing Marc Jacobs Lipstick in Miss Scarlet and Clinique’s Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer.

Don’t miss my other NYFW looks (Chico’s Black Label and my Bianca Coat) and my runway reports with all the trends on deck for 2019 (Son Jung Wan, Taoray Wang, Badgley Mischka.

    You look like you are on top of the world, Dawn Lucy. Love this coat and how it billows against the wind. I prefer the OTK boots, they are by far more edgy, perfect for a NY crowd.

    You look like you are on top of the world, Dawn Lucy. I like the way this fabulous coat bellows against the wind. I prefer the OTK boots, they look more edgy so like NY
