Quick Trip to NY

Just got back from New York- went for the IFB conference and a couple other fun meetings. The IFB conference was wonderful and it was so sweet to meet other readers and bloggers! 

I checked in at the W in Times Square... I loved it! I usually stay in Soho, but it was nice being in a different part of NYC for a change.
The first night I arrived, they brought me cookies and milk... the next day, they brought me "W" pretzels and cheese! 
I didn't realize I packed so many neutrals until I hung everything in the closet. I'm a horrible packer, not going to lie. 
Some of the accessories I also packed on top of vintage wool trousers I found at Amarcord and Madewell sparkly gold shorts. 
Delicous beet and goat cheese salad I ordered at the W... If you ever go, YOU must try it!
Another delicious treat- iced tea from The Lambs Club.

Oh and P.S., keep on playing Sartorial Pursuit, I want to know if you guys win anything!

What an eclectic look. There is so much going on because of the different textures and fabrics but ik looks great. It’s so tricky to do, but you’ve nailed it (as I said before, you’ve got style so you know how to put a look together). I love the lace dress, not something I would wear in the winter but it looks fabulous with the tights and the coat. The flowers are a great inspiration for my next lace project

amy@flyingakite.blogspot.com said...

The shoes are divine. You are such a precious and lucky girl. So many people are grooved and enlightened by your style and photographs~ You deserve the world miss Karla~ Stay beautiful.

I have such mixed feelings about packing. It's kind of excitingly frustrating, if that makes any sense. Anyways, it looks like you've done a pretty damn good job. Great outfit, as ever. It's really interesting to see how different people deal wit hthe freezing NY weather conditions. :)

thefashionguitar.com said...

Packing is so hard... never know what to wear when, cause how in the world do you know where you will end up every day/night. Especially in NYC!
However, you did a good job, didn't you?? Hope you have the best time ever!

Love the layered look and don't worry I organize my closet for seasons and nearly every single piece for winter is in grey, black, white or beige! But I just think that gives an excuse to wear more colorful and exciting jewelry:)

Ladies footwear over the last decade have gone crazy in their design and style. More and more are the designers and stylists pushing the boundaries with the designs, the colors, patterns, and the shape of ladies footwear

I love goat cheese salads like that, I forget where it was that the cheese was crusted in that way- almost the spitting image of that salad. It wasn't the W but it was a nice place.
