Date with NYC | Corset Top + Full Skirt

Happy Monday everyone! I get one full week in the office today which I hope won’t drag out too much till the weekend. I’m a little bummed that the past few days have had brisk cold nights. I just want to hold onto to summer a little bit longer–is that too much to ask? Ah well.

So day 2 of NYFW, I attended a few things in the morning till afternoon before hopping over to the theater district and had myself a little date with NYC by catching a Broadway show–the Lion King for one. I’ve caught Broadways shows in the past for one only because it was just easier to watch it myself on my own schedule than to plan to watch it with others. I’ve watched Wicked twice on Broadway myself and it was quite liberating.

As for Lion King, I actually never had the desire to watch it until recently when I bumped into this video here and was quite moved that I had to go see it. I have to say though that this wasn’t my favorite Broadway show by far and I kinda liked the second half of the show versus the first half. It was definitely a toss-up deciding which to watch between Lion King and Book of Mormon, but I heard that you should watch Lion King first, because the Book of Mormon made a lot of references to the Lion King show. At least now I can cross Lion King off my list of Broadway shows to watch. I didn’t know this either, but Broadway even added Aladdin to the mix of Disney movies that made it to live theater. Now, can we add “Frozen” too? 😛

Anyway, maybe it’s just me, but even if I were to catch a matinee or evening Broadway show, I always like to dress up a bit for fun. I think I have always done that in the past and that hasn’t changed since and I wore this outfit below for the occasion. You’ve seen this skirt already here and I thought it would go well with this DVF corseted top. The only complaint I had with it was that the straps were an inch too long, so I constantly had to adjust them throughout the day. I’ll see if I could alter them myself before taking the top to the tailors.

Outfit: DVF Avalon Corset Top // H&M skirt (old/similar) // Sole Society pumps (old/similar version here) // Chanel bag // David Yurman bracelet // Burberry watch // Kendra Scott Naomi ring (c/o)

And don’t you just love this ring from Kendra Scott? They were passing them out at the Rewardstyle party day before and this ring has quickly become my favorite piece to add to an outfit. I was able to attend their open house the next day which I will talk about more in my next post.

I hope you have a great one today and thanks always for reading!
