Brunch in style

First I’d like to apologize for not posting in the past week! It was a crazy time with projects due at my FIT class, and preparations to make for our flight back home. A few life updates, I’m now back in Paris but while I was in New York, I cut my hair! I had been growing it out for about two years and finally decided to chop off my long locks for a good cause. To me it’s only hair, but to a woman with cancer it’s something that makes her feel empowered, and like her former self. I donated to Pantene’s beautiful lengths program which gives free wigs made 100% of human hair to women with cancer. It’s a great way to give back so if you can, donate!

My last full weekend in New York I decided to follow one of my friends recommendations to go to a restaurant named Beauty & Essex. My friend is an absolute genius because of course his recommendation was incredible! Go to my Instagram to see all of the delicious things we ate there, and all over NYC!

A simple yet sophisticated outfit is what I consider perfect for brunch. I wore a one shoulder dress, that drapes absolutely beautifully. The brown leather accents added an edge to the feminine look of the dress in contrasting with the romantic shape reminiscent of a toga. I added a thin belt to the dress in order to balance the look, and not make it overly loose. My black sandals from Zara, which have now become a staple were the perfect pair of shoes as they elevated the look. Some round sunglasses finished off the look and protected my eyes from the blazing sun.

      Thanks Cara! It was something I wanted to do for a long time, and I’m grateful that it is possible for me to do it. I don’t regret it at all, and whoever gets the wig made from my hair will be one lucky lady!
