On Fashion’s Night Out this year, I took it easy. Instead of an extensive itinerary that consisted of trying cover every major event like I did last year, I roamed the streets with some of my blogger friends, going where the wind takes us. This was my friend Max’s first FNO in NYC. Our first stop, when it was not yet super crowded, was Bloomingdale’s to browse through the collection of the much acclaimed cult favorite, Ovadia & Sons. Here’s a pic of one of their main display along with a book aptly turned to a style analysis of my favorite gent of all time, Cary Grant. For better pics of the clothes, along with some Ralph Lauren pieces that caught his eye, visit Mattoo’s Place.

Dress Reconstruction: The Lemon Yellow Maxi
Found this sunny 70’s dress at the Value village on New Hampshire MONTHS ago. I fell in love with the bishop sleeves and black contrast stitching. I wanted to make something that still possessed a retro vibe yet was relevant for today. I took up the hem significantly to make a mini cocktail dress and removed the wide collar. I decided to dye the dress a warm cantaloupe color that was still very bright (but not yellow, lol) I added contrasted stitching at the bottom, as well as some dressier vintage buttons. I also took in the sleeves a bit.
Decided to wear it at Fashion’s Night Out in DC this year while covering some events. It was a hit! I even got my photo on the Washingtonian website which I was giddy as a school girl about cause I am easily excited, lol.
This is pretty suite. When talking to her, I didn’t realize what this dress was. She was very proud when talking about about it. Great job.
This is to menswear bloggers what a Drake and Trey Songz meet-and-greet is to high school girls. If I didn’t already have responsibilities down here, I would consider taking off work for this.
You’re cordially invited.
Had to creep up on some fool at the drive-thru today. Trying to high sign and things. Had to get em.
