Feathers “New York” Dress / Vintage Accessories / Zara flats

After admiring the serene runway looks from New York designer Yeohlee‘s Spring Runway 14 show and chatting with her intellectual crowd (think gallerists, museum curators, architects, artists), we captured some snaps at the Jones Wood Garden where the show was held, not long before we were banned from taking photos at this ‘private property’ actually… Yeohlee’s show was such a contrast to all the other NYFW shows: tranquillity and zen prevailed. It was without fanfare, no celebrities were in sight, and the garments spoke in volume. I cannot wait to show you the looks in the next post.
So what did I don to the show? The heat in NY was starting to cloud my sartorial choice, but luckily the bright apricot hue of this Feathers “New York” frock spoke to me from the corner of my wardrobe. It was a no brainer. I’m in New York, going to a New York designer’s show, in an iconic New York location. Sleek, minimal, and comfortable, it was the best choice for my 7 months pregnant belly. And the most priceless memory from the day? Since I forgot to bring my clothes steamer, Hubby improvised with a hairdryer to rid the creases from my dress as we hastily got ready for Yeohlee’s show. It worked a treat. And the best-husband-in-the-world just added another description to his title: personal presser.
