Can you believe it? It’s my first crop top ever! And it’s sheer. And I wore it at New York Fashion Week! That’s a lot of great things going on ;)

So, I sort of threw this look together on Thursday, as I was packing for my trip to New York. I originally wanted this skirt in the magenta color is came in (which is now sold-out) but since that wasn’t available, I figured I would push myself to try a different color. I love red, but this is reaaaal red… as in, fire engine, bright & bold, showstopper red. Took me 2 seconds after trying it on to fall in love, ha! It makes an impact, and at NYFW, I think that’s a good idea ;)

I opted for the crop top because a blouse was too heavy- the loose material was a bit much on top of the full skirt. Really, I wanted just a simple white or nude lace top, but couldn’t find one. When I found the crop top, with the collar, I thought hm… maybe this is a sign for me to finally try this trend out. Since the top cam down to the top of the skirt, it felt less risqué and was an easier transition for me. The blouse was $14.95… NOBODY could believe it was that price and from H&M. And let me tell you, I was medium stalked about this blouse ha! So, there’s a great buy!

My blogger friend Laura from LoSo Fancy (she’s a doll, seriously, check her out!) took these photos on her bomb camera. It was so fun spending time with her because we only just recently met, but we get along well! During our shoot, representatives from Vidal Sassoon snapped our pics- for me, they wanted shots of my top knot, and for her, they wanted shots of her sequin rose gold skirt (uhh, I’m obsessed with it). We were so excited! Funny story about the top knot: it was so insanely humid that my big, beautiful curls went completely flat. I knew it was supposed to rain and be 90*, so I last minute decided to throw my hair up. I didn’t have pins (hence the pokey pieces ha) but I liked the look, and I thanked myself later while sweating away haha.

The rewardStyle party was beyond amazing (that’s what I attended in this look). The sponsors gave out wonderful swag- like gorgeous jewelry, clothing and makeup- and the networking opportunities were unparalleled to any other blogging event I’ve attended. It was honestly a blast, and I am so thrilled to be a part of the company. Now I’m kicking myself for not attending last year! ;)

Well, I’ll share more about NYFW with you all in my next post. In the meantime, have a great day. And sorry for the major overload on photos… they were SO nice and I loved this look SO SO much that I had to just put millions up and be vain. :)

No puedo creerlo… llevé mi primer crop top, de encaje… a la semana de la moda de Nueva York. ¡Eeek! ¡Qué emoción!

Bueno, creé este look la noche antes de irme a Nueva York. Originalmente, busqué esta falda en magenta, pero no estaba disponible. Por eso, me hice probar la roja brillante. Pues, dudaba mucho que el color aparecería lindo pero… me equivoqué. :) Me encantó el color y el hecho de que es vivo, llamativo y fuerte. Perfecto para la semana de la moda de NY, no? 

Escogí un crop top en vez de mi estándar blusa porque mis blusas me quedan flojas, y la combinación era arrolladora. Buscaba una blusa de encaje de o blanco o neutral, pero no la encontré. Pues sí encontré el crop top y después de probarlo, me di cuenta que no era demasiado sexy. El crop top está bastante larga y la falda me queda alta así que la combinación está linda, elegante, y moderna. Y chicas, la blusa me costó menos que $15… mucha gente me pidió los detalles del look y NADIE me creía cuando expliqué mi hallazgo de H&M. Increíble, ¿no?

Mi amiga y la querida bloguera Laura de LoSo Fancy sacó mis fotos con su cámara y pienso que están hermosas (¡Deben visitar a su sitio web porque es una amor y su estilo está perfecto!). Recién nos conocimos y por eso nos divertimos mucho pasando tiempo juntas en las fiestas. Durante nuestra sesión de fotos, unas representativas de Vidal Sassoon nos pidieron unas fotos. Sacaron fotos de mi estilo de pelo (top knot) y de la falda de Laura (que era oro de rosa con lentejuelas). ¡Estuvimos bien emocionados! El chiste es que hice mi pelo para que tenía mucho volumen y rizos grandes y bonitos. Pues, por el húmedo, pasó que mi pelo terminó a ser recto. ¡Qué pena! En 2 minutos puse mi pelo en este rodete y ya… que bien que lo hice porque el clima era horrible y estaba mucho más cómoda así. 

Bueno, llevé este look a la fiesta de rewardStyle, que fue genial. Había muchas marcas en el eventos que nos regalaron buenas cosas, como joyas, maquillaje, y ropa. La mejor parte fue la oportunidad de hablar con y conocer a tantas blogueras. Sobre todo, el evento fue incomparable a los otros eventos a que he asistido. ¡Genial!

Les compartiré más de lo que llevé y hice durante NYFW esta semana. Espero que tengan un lindo día. Oye, y perdónenme por mostrar tantas fotos… me encantaron lo que hizo Laura y no pude escoger 5-6. ¡Perdón.. les juro que no soy egoísta jaja!

    Whoa best outfit ever…I saw those skirts at express…but I don’t think they are petite friendly…perfect NY outfit! <3

    • La Mariposa Blog says:

      Thanks Liz!! Hmm, I may agree with you on the petite comment. Asos will for sure have petite options in full skirts though! This one is sz. 2 and I’m 5’7, so it is pretty long!
