One of my models, who is also a friend, joined me at the Kimberly Hotel for dinner out after I had styled her . We had lovely time. Below our impromptu shots of the night!
I styled Sam in a fabulous, and I mean FABULOUS tunic by Anna Sui.
It has three layers of tulle underneath , the embroidery is divine and the triple layers of beads decorating the flared sleeve– well the sum total of the piece reminds me of clothing I have seen in costume exhibits, that is how beautiful this tunic is.
Of course on Sam, the outfit was the perfect compliment to her own luminous looks Below a shot of the whole look in the uber chic lobby of the Kimberly Hotel.
Sam is wearing double buckle boots by Laurence Decade Paris . The black chevron tights added a nice texture although they read brown here. They also added some opacity, as this tunic is short.
The fingerless gloves are a chic accent, and are practical for when you are doing the things we ladies do… like check our iphones ! The gloves are CHANEL. via Designer Revival. Sam wears sunnies from Style-Now.com, ” Le Fleur” in black.
Below a candid of Sam checking her phone near the very cool fish tank. The colors are a bit off from light that the tank throws off, but I liked this shot anyway. Another great feature of this great Hotel and restaurant -it even has a lively rooftop bar!
OH, this mirror !
Exquisite details above and below!
After a sumptuous dinner of skate fish and steak , we went to the rooftop bar. It was busy and lively! The views were tremendous!
Now Sam took my phone and got a snap of me outside. The lighting was not optimal, but you can see I am there and having fun! Below I am wearing a skirt from The Retreat Boutique, and a Mark Cross Bag.
I love when I find special places to go to. I found this place last year with Allie, of AllieNYC.com , by a very happy accident. I so enjoyed visiting with Samantha, we had the best conversation about art, love, politics, and the differences ( and similarities) between our generations.
Do you have friends in different age groups ? I have old and young friends alike, and I treasure each every one of them. Please share your experiences below!
Happy week ahead, and love and prayers to anyone directly, or indirectly affected by the hurricane.
