{what to wear} Launch of KARL with Net-a-Porter

  Sunday, January 22, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
On Friday I got a very exciting email from net-a-porter inviting me to the launch of KARL by Karl Lagerfeld for net-a-porter on January 25th in New York City. I hastily asked for the day off and thankfully it was granted!  At first I thought it was an exclusive event because my email said to RSVP, but then I got a general email in the form of a net-a-porter newsletter and it is actually an open event, so you guys can go too! There are pop-up store locations in 5 countries, I posted the information below.

The only problem is to shop the collection you need an app on your iPhone or iPad 2 and I have may finally be time for me to bite the bullet and buy the iPhone4s...I've wanted one for a while but just didn't want to spend the money.  I only have 3 days to get one though and I hate going places after we'll see if I can make it to the store today or something.

Now the next problem is...WHAT DO I WEAR!? This is my first time going to an event like this, the past 2 times I was able to go to a fashion event was  an affiliate tea and my Outnet Photoshoot, nothing as big as this. I've been agonizing over what to wear and so far I was thinking of a simple look with some pop. I have to decide what to wear UNDER the blazer though...and I'll probably need a coat...perhaps my leopard coat?or would that be too leopardy?

Sandals: Miu Miu eBay
Blazer: Moschino Cheap & Chic eBay $27
Jeans: Free People (Gilt Groupe) gift card
Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop)
Watch: Michael Kors (25% off at Lord & Taylor)
Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) gift card
(I will obviously have flats in my purse for when my feet start dying)
And yes, this is sorta a copy of something I wore 2 weeks ago, but when something works why not wear it again? ;)

I am also freaking out because I've never caught a cab on my own many of you know I am VERY shy so whenever I go to NYC alone I walk EVERYWHERE and avoid talking to people. BUT if I walked to this event it would take forever, so that is not an option, ha ha. But now that I did this post there is no chickening out because you all know I'm going ;)
