NYFW Day 2 OOTD: Saturated

For the second day, I wanted to take advantage of the perfect weather (a true rarity for New York Fashion Week) with a breezy, color-saturated look.

The rich orange, bold cobalt, and bright neon palette isn’t a typical one, but I had a moment of inspiration while looking at my closet and decided to run with it.

I even added a few more shades to the mix with my clutch from Beatriz.  This new luxury accessories brand from the niece of industry pioneer Josie Natori is gorgeous, and produced ethically by local Filipino artisans.  The unique use of hand-placed threadwork gives an effect that is both visually striking and wonderfully tactile.

Otherwise, I kept my accessories simple, only wearing my Sarah Chloe bangle (engraved with the date of our anniversary in Roman numerals – which is today!)

My new mules were surprisingly comfortable for a full day of running around the city.   I love the architectural heel on these.

That point though.

Also shockingly comfortable: My new strapless bra from Elomi.  I’ve worn it before, but never for a 12+ hour day.  My shorter wears were always pain-free, but I honestly still expected to hit a proverbial wall around hour 6 or so (there’s a lot of boob weight to hold up there).  So I found myself growing increasingly incredulous as the day continued on and I wasn’t even a bit uncomfortable, let alone in massive pain like I have been with so many other strapless bras I’ve tried.  I only started experiencing a little discomfort after hour 12, but frankly I’m ready to take off *any* bra by that time 😛  I highly recommend getting a phone fitting like I did recommend so you can find your perfect strapless too, because this is seriously a game-changer.
