If you follow my snapchat (IAM CHOUQUETTE) or my instagram, you will know that I spent my birthday in NYC. I had the most whirl wind birthday; shows all day, a photo shoot then A HELICOPTER RIDE around Manhattan courtesy of NET A PORTER. I still can’t quite believe how incredible it was, it went by in a flash but we managed to take some photos and I filmed the entire thing. You can watch my NYC video here. If you ever visit NYC, I suggest booking this heli ride if you can. It really is a moment to remember. To watch my NYFW VIDEO CLICK HERE.
This dress was just one of those dresses that held the power to make me feel like a million dollars, I know that is the most cheesy saying I have no doubt ever said but I did feel like a million dollars wearing this dress, stepping into a helicopter… I mean just imagine. The print of this dress comes in many different styles, there is a jacket, a shirt dress and top and skirt that you would have seen me wear here. I adore this print but it wasn’t just the print; it was the fabric, the silhouette, the pockets and the way it moved when I walked. For sure one of the top ten fashion moments for me and I can not thank NET A PORTER enough for the best birthday gift…THANK YOU.
I have listed the rest of this banana leaf collection below so you can see it all.
I paired this look with a simple pair of black heels and a black bag. The focus needed to be on the dress and these shoes are really comfortable. I really want them in grey now. I love perfect this bag is for the evening but it’s slightly edgy, I can not bare silly little evening bags. If it does fit my iPhone plus, I don’t want to know.
Sabrina wore a fun bought pink dress which you can see here. I loved how dramatic we both looked. Sabrina wore her trusted Gucci Marmont shoes which she wore all week and if she wasn’t wearing them I was…. best shoes ever. Tomorrow I am posting an article all about these Gucci Marmont shoes so stay tuned.
