What I Wore in A Week and the New York City Film Festival

I’m writing you right now from an Amtrak train headed to DC. I desperately wanted to enjoy my first Friday without class by going home. I was at a Luxury Education Foundation breakfast at Estee Lauder earlier this morning…so I’m way more overdressed for the train than I find acceptable.

This week’s WIW post is interesting. My godsister, over at the Tattooed Vintage, is incredibly stylish and amazing at vintage and consignment shopping.  She pulled a few pieces for me a while back and I finally got to wear one of them in this week’s post.

Let’s get to the clothes, and then I’ll tell you why this week was interesting…

So this week was interesting clothing wise because it seemed like the events and dress codes were all over the place.  The second day posted, I had 2 minutes to get dressed. I mistook the start time for a class and had to get from my couch in my pajamas to my accounting class in under 15 minutes, and I live a 20 minute train ride from school. This is when I learned how important it is to have similar pieces near one another.  Granted I look like someone from Kanye West’s fashion show, in all my drab colors and olive green, but some how it worked. I had a lot of company events or informational meetings, so that’s why you see more blazers than usual. Also, the weather was all over the place, but again I got to do layers.

The outfit at the end is what I wore to the premiere night of the New York City Film Festival. I wanted to go for something visually interesting in a crowd, and that had a bit of conversation starting elements to it.  Those things on the sleeves are hand done sequins and beading, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on that sweater. It also came in super handy when the temperature dropped big time leaving Lincoln Center that night.

A quick plug, I got to see The Walk that night.  When I tell you that visually it was stunning, I’m hardly ever going to be able to do it justice in this post.  Also, if you are afraid of heights, like me, be prepared to white knuckle your way through it. Not since 127 Hours had I had so much anxiety watching a film.  But above anything it’s a beautiful story about following your dreams, and believing grand, extravagant dreams for yourself. It’s a beautiful film, and a wonderful love letter to New York City.

I hope you check out the movie, I promise you won’t be disappointed, unless you hate good movies…then just go watch Pluto Nash.

XOXO,

MacKenzie
