Happy Thursday! Whitney and I are so excited to share a special post today that contains all of our favorite things – pink, leopard and shopping! We just arrived back from NYFW and had the most amazing time! While our schedule was packed with fashion shows, dinners, and show room visits, we definitely made time for shopping. Our first stop was a store that we love and post about often – Bloomingdale’s! We took a cab from our hotel near Central Park to the 59th Ave & Lexington flagship store. Whitney and I smiled ear to ear as we stepped out to see the gorgeous storefront. The line of waving flags welcomed us to a mecca of beauty and fashion fabulousness!
This was our first time to visit the store, and wow it was such a treat! The first floor greeted us with the largest array of designer bags from Louis Vuitton and Chanel to Tory Burch and Prada. The next thing we noticed was a brightly lit display advertising the 100% Bloomingdale’s collection. We had heard all about the specially curated collection during our fashion week adventures and couldn’t wait to see which items were included. We saw the cutest leopard shift dress in the display, which I immediately knew had to get into my closet ASAP. We immediately headed to the third floor to start pulling items to try on!
You will love that every single piece in their fall roundup features a “special twist that makes it 100% only Bloomingdale’s and uniquely yours!” Keep reading for all the shopping details PLUS we have an amazing promo to share with you at the end of today’s post!
Whitney grabbed this oh so cute bow tie leopard top, several jeans and the cutest jackets! We also found some oh so chic and on-trend dresses from a brand called Bardot. Such fun designs and a great price point! I grabbed this AQUA floral appliqué shift dress (it came home with me too!) and several exclusive items from Likely and Calvin Klein.
As soon as we tried on the MICHAEL Michael Kors leopard blouse and dress on together we knew they would be perfect for our busy day of shows the next day at Skylight Clarkson Square. Our motto is leopard is always the right answer to any outfit dilemma! It’s so easy to mix and match with and can take an outfit from casual to dressy just by adding a statement clutch and colorful heels.You can shop all the 100% exclusive Michael Kors items here.
For Whitney’s look, she wanted to style her blouse a bit more casual as she’d been in skirts and dresses all week. She loved how the cuffs of the blouse can be worn up or down depending on how dressy you want it to be. Bell sleeves are so popular this season and gives the blouse an extra special touch. Another feature is the bowtie is removable. It even comes with a black cami that can clip in at the shoulders so the straps don’t ever slip down. We love a great blouse that has this much versatility!
My shift dress comes in sizes 0 – 16 and is fully lined. The fabric is so comfortable and doesn’t wrinkle, making it perfect to go from your busy work day to dinner plans and beyond. It’s the perfect dress to wear alone or with a jean jacket or dress it up with leather for fall! I plan on adding tights and booties once the temps drop.
The best part about the 100% Bloomingdale’s collection is that you literally won’t find these pieces at any other store! Bloomingdale’s worked with more than 100 designers to create a specialized collection of 1000+ exclusive items. From purses and shoes to dresses and jewelry, there is something for everyone in this new fall collection! The list of partnering brands is truly amazing! Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Theory, Rebecca Taylor, Rag & Bone and Amanda Uprichard are just a few of the designers on the list!
