|Vintage Embellished Jacket || Forver21 Leather skirt || Topshop Heels || Primark Belt
On Thursday night, I celebrated Fashion Night Out here in NYC by attending events across the city. I kept it simple by pairing a leather pencil skirt (something I’ve been on the search for) with an embellished vintage jacket I found here in NYC a few weeks back.

– a fellow Irish blogger also living here in NYC.
Our first stop was –What Goes Around Comes Around
– a store which boasts the most amazing vintage pieces. As part of the Fashion Night Out celebrations, Whitney Port presented a collection of customized shirts. As part of my internship with Whitney, I delivered the shirts to the store earlier that day, so I was very excited to see how they looked. Here’s a few snaps from the event…
Here’s a look at the ‘Whitney Eve’ pieces…
|How unbelievably beautiful is she?!
As you can imagine, it was VERY cool to be able to hang out in the same store as Whitney Port & she genuinely is such a beautiful person! I’m really looking forward to the coming week assisting her with preparations for her NYFW show.
After our visit to Soho, the next stop was the Meatpacking District -home to many amazing stores such as DVF & Scoop. All in all, it was an amazing experience to be in New York for the famous Fashion Night Out & I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the stores, the celebs & the street style. Fingers crossed I’ll be back in NYC again for next years’ events!
As I mentioned, I’ve started my internship with Whitney Port and her team…& I’m having the MOST AMAZING TIME so far! Above is a little peek at what I wore when I met her for the first time on Thursday morning -you can never go wrong with a statement piece of jewellery, hey? It’s been a very busy first few days & I have a feeling it’s about to get even crazier. But right now I genuinely couldn’t be happier to be doing what I’m doing! Don’t forget to keep up with me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram (@Retroflame) -to see how it all goes :)
Have a great weekend!
