#TBT Purdy Girl

Heyyy Fashionistas,

Today I’m throwing it back….wayy back to this past summer when I visited one of my favorite boutiques in NYC, Purdy Girl.

I’m sure many people can relate when I say that choosing the right outfit is sometimes harder than choosing what to make for dinner. Purdy Girl is a one-stop place where a fashionista can find an outfit for any occasion that works for day and night.

The clothes are very chic and girly. Purdy Girl sells clothes that aren’t too specific so each clothing apparel has tons of versatility. Depending on how you wear it and what you can pair it with, you can wear the outfit to multiple occasions. Need a white dress to stand out at a cocktail party? Try on the white sequined dress that Monica wore! But wait…you’re going to a garden party, you say? Wear a simple white a-line dress perfect for warm spring weather.

Ready for a garden party!! But first, let’s add in some color with my sunset-colored headband 😉

One of my favorite outfits that I tried on made me feel ready for a Fourth of July celebration.

Navy cut out tank top, high-waisted red shorts (inspired from Mickey Mouse?), white straw fedora with navy band

Now most outfits that I chose were more trendy but fear not! For my more simple and minimal fashionistas, there is a whole wall full of basic tees, tanktops, shorts, etc. Purdy Girl keeps all fashionistas in mind!

Basic tees, tanks, camis, etc + those gorgeous shoes ❤ #strut

Need to have an outfit that goes from day to night? You can change and play up your work outfit with the accessories section in Purdy Girl. There is a huge section right next to the changing rooms decorated with tons and tons of bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings. Talk about prime location! Try some clothes on and walk less than a feet away to spice up the outfit even more!

The most unique thing that popped out to me were the chandeliers. There were even gold necklaces dangling from the ceiling making it feel more like a huge walk-in closest rather than a store. The store was was bustling with customers, but the sales associates were super aware of what all the customers need. From the time I spent there, I noticed many shoppers were actually frequent customers. The store associates had established a strong relationship with them and knew immediately what they were looking for. Now that is quality customer relationship right there!

Maxi dresses are best for staying breezy in the summer if you don’t want to show too much skin!

Another favorite type of top I love to wear during the summer are babydoll tops! I love the flowy feeling!

Hey Fashionistas!

Guess who’s back in NYC?? That’s right! Yours truly is back in NYC for spring break which means Shopping galore!!

After two days of catching up on sleep and seeing the family & relatives, I had a mother-daughters shopping day in the city. Erica (my twin), my mom, and I decided to start at 34th street at JCPenney to return a few gowns that my sister had decided not to wear for her senior ball. Naturally with all the dresses around me, I just had to try a few on.

My favorite one was this elegant white mermaid dress.

City Triangles® Strapless Glitter Tulle Long Mermaid Dress

I felt like I was wearing a wedding dress!! I mean…HELLO…What girl doesn’t dream about her wedding dress…and her bridesmaids’ dresses, and the flowers, and….ok, ok I’m drifting…back to the white dress. The rhinestones gave it the perfect glitz and the mermaid bottom gave it that simple elegance. I absolutely loved wearing this dress! Too bad it was a little too long and I wasn’t getting married anytime soon #stillacollegestudent #letsgetajobfirst

After leaving JCPenney, we headed over to Macys where of course, I decided to try on more dresses! Hey…a girl can never try on too many dresses!

This one is my PERSONAL favorite.

Jump Juniors’ Strapless Sequin Gown – Pink

It’s pink AND has sequins all over!!! Talk about my dream dress here!! I felt like a celebrity ready for the red carpet in this dress. It was fitted with a sexy slit up the side. This dress was clearly made for HOLLYWOOD! As I wore this dress, all I could think in my head was Pink Champagne by Ariana Grande.

My mother-daughters shopping day was absolutely fantastic. I felt like a princess trying on those dresses!
