My Night At Stone Rose Lounge, The Finished “Fashion Blogger Forecast” Look, And A New Giveaway
On Monday, I told you gals all about the amazing time I had shopping at Time Warner Center as part of Sicka Than Average‘s involvement in the “Fashion Blogger Forecast” campaign. In my quest to style the perfect ensemble for a “Girl’s Night Out” at Stone Rose Lounge, I perused through the stellar offerings at BOSS Hugo Boss, bebe, Stuart Weitzman, A/X Armani Exchange, and True Religion (all retailers in The Shops at Columbus Circle). I wanted an ensemble that was sexy but edgy, sophisticated but with a hint of the audaciousness and boldness we associate with glam rock — and, in the end, I put together the ensemble you see here for my after-hours chill session.
The main pieces in the final look are: an ultra snug, red bandage dress from bebe ($109); a black leather jacket from bebe with paillette details ($259); Stuart Weitzman’s color-blocked, ankle-strap, raffia Bradfrod sandals ($359); a black leather cross-body bag from BOSS Hugo Boss ($450); and a black-and-white modal scarf from A/X Armani Exchange ($38). I then piled on the silver jewelry to add the necessary touch of rock-n-roll flavor. The statement piece here is a multi-strand silver necklace from A/X Armani Exchange ($38). Since the necklace was rather elaborate, I didn’t want the earrings to be so large that the pieces would be competing for the limelight and so I chose a pair of small, wing-shaped stud earrings with pavé stone details, also from A/X Armani Exchange ($28). I then opted for a matching wing-shaped ring from A/X Armani Exchange ($32) and a large buckle-shaped, gunmetal-colored hinge bracelet from A/X Armani Exchange ($38). The last two jewelry pieces came from bebe: a multi-strand, twisted, silver metal chain bracelet with clear rhinestones ($24), and a mammoth silver-colored ring shaped like a cobra ($24).
Putting the various components together was fairly simple: I shimmied into the bebe dress and slipped my feet into the Stuart Weitzman shoes, then covered my back and shoulders with the biker-flavored bebe jacket. Next, I strung the A/X Armani Exchange necklace over my neck and secured the A/X Armani Exchange earrings to my lobes. Then, I put the A/X Armani Exchange buckle cuff on my left wrist and the bebe chain bracelet on my right wrist. Since the bebe jacket had zippers along the sleeves, I was able to unzip the cuffs for a peek-a-boo effect that enabled me to show off the bracelets even when I still had my jacket on! As far as the rings, I wore the cobra ring on the pointer finger on my right hand and slipped the A/X Armani Exchange wing ring onto the ring finger of that very same hand (I love wearing multiple rings on each hand!). To add some panache, I draped the scarf over my shoulders, tucking it under the collar of the leather jacket. I then grabbed my BOSS Hugo Boss purse (in which I tucked a tube of NARS Jungle Red lipstick), and headed to Stone Rose Lounge to meet the gals!
Since Stone Rose Lounge has such a “grown and sexy” feel to it (one wall is made of slithers of tainted, blood red glass), the outfit seemed pitch-perfect. I felt confident, and I’m sure it showed.
Below, you’ll find more photos of the final outfit, as well as some shots of my night out at stone Rose Lounge, where I enjoyed some delicious cocktails, admired the view of Central Park from the floor-to-ceiling windows, and swapped stories with my homegirls.
