So what does one wear to a Real Housewives of New York Premiere Party?
I looked in my closet and just couldn’t find anything that screamed Kristen Taekman’s new BFF/cool blogger who attends events like this all the time.
Luckily, my friends at South Moon Under in Westfield were able to help. They offered to dress me (and my plus one) for the event, so on Saturday afternoon my sister Allison (the lucky recipient of my extra ticket) and I met up with Cynthia and her staff to choose our looks.
I discovered South Moon Under last fall. I definitely can’t afford to shop there everyday, but it’s the perfect shop for a special outfit. I think of it as a combination of the best parts of Anthropologie and J. Crew, plus pieces from designers like Trina Turk, Nanette Lepore, and Rebecca Minkoff.
The South Moon Under Westfield team had pulled some outfits aside for us, and we wandered the store to add to the collection.
When I saw the wall of gorgeous bathing suits, I was disappointed we weren’t going to a beach party. Maybe I’ll get invited to the Real Housewives of Miami Premiere??
This was the first dress I tried on, a black-and-white striped tube dress from Trina by Trina Turk.
I liked it, but it wasn’t fancy enough for this event. Too beachy.
The second dress I tried on was a black Line & Dot Tube Dress. Allison and I actually came out of our dressing rooms at the same time…with this same dress on. (Looked better on me!)
I love, love, loved this black dress, so I stopped trying stuff on.
We also fought over the dress that Allison eventually chose, but she won because you need boobs to fill it out.
Her dress is the Bailey 44 ‘Doll Face’ Cut Out Colorblock Dress.
Some other items that I loved while I was browsing…
We had so much fun getting styled for the RHONY Premiere Party! Thank you South Moon Under in Westfield! I can’t wait to show you all my final look tomorrow night!
