Lucky shopping day

This year Lucky FABB had an optional shopping day, which I happily signed up for. To kick off the grand opening of the first Piperlime brick and mortar store, they hosted a brunch for us at a super swanky hotel in SoHo, the Crosby Street Hotel. If I ever have the means, I would love to stay there. It was so gorgeous. I neglected to take photos there because I was too busy chatting it up with the other bloggers and enjoying the tasty spread.

I have plenty of photos from the rest of the day however, which was kicked off with the ribbon cutting at Piperlime, and everyone was given a $100 gift card to get the shopping going. I ended up bringing home an adorable yellow Pim + Larkin dress.

Mid way through the day my new friend Alex and I stole away for some much needed Starbucks and outfit photos, and I happily volunteered to snap photos of another new acquaintance, Laura and Meg of course.

We went to several other stores, swooning over the goods at Kate Spade and sipping champagne at Calypso St. Barth. Even though I made sure I had money in my budget to do a little tax free shopping in NYC, I didn't buy anything else! I suppose it's because I rarely make impulse purchases... I like to leave and come back before I buy.

After breakfast, we walked past Tiffany's


  1. That day sounds like a dream!! I can't wait to see the new dress. I'm usually "on a mission" when I shop too, so it seems like whenever I shop just for fun I don't come home with much. Unless I go to Target... then things just start jumping into my cart!

  2. I love that you borrowed Meg's shoes. And it looks like you just had such a perfect day...also, I've got to throw in that I just adore that dress on you.

  3. Thanks for sharing your pics - your outfits plus the quality of your photos are always so fantastic.

    I think I've asked before (but I've got such a bad memory, haha), but do you mind sharing what kind of camera and lens you use?

  4. You ladies look like you had a great time. I bet it was like a whirlwind of activity! Heather

  5. Woohoo! So many pictures! They all came out amazing :D
    I had too many pictures I wanted to post so I put my shopping ones on Facebook, haha XD

  7. You made such cute friends! Everyone is dressed so very nicely! I really like Laura's pretty hair bun and Alex's ornate belt... such neat little accessories! And of course, you're looking stunning as always, with such a gorgeous feather dress. I'm glad that you got something, at least, even if you didn't go shopping crazy--sometimes, you just don't find things, but that's better to find one thing you like than spend money on pointless things! :)

    And I must say that I love where these pictures are taken... the streets are so neat!
