NYFW Spring 2013 – What I Wore Day 5

The weather was a lot milder in New York City yesterday, but I still got my pins out.

I wore my favourite Mary Katrantzou pencil print dress.

You may remember I was mildly obsessed with this dress when it was presented back in February, so I had to purchase this commercial version.

I styled it with my burgundy Zara sandals and a neon yellow Aila ‘Spike Me’ mini bag.

It maybe a mini bag, but it packs a mean punch with those silver studs.

Aila have a range of studded bags which are available exclusively to my-wardrobe US and

    Seriously, this is GREAT. I loved the pencil skirt too and think that it is so awesome that you bought it! You styled it to perfection as well. But more than that I just want to compliment how YOU shine through this so well–despite the striking print and bold color combo, you are completely owning this look and pulling it off with high-fashion aplomb! I bet you had people wondering what runway you just stepped off of 😉
    Keep enjoying everything to its fullest! <3

    Believe me, if I were a celebrity I’d go straight to you and beg you to be my stylist 😀
    By the way, apart from the great ensamble (as always) you look stunning!

    Have a nice time at Fashion Week!

    i felt like you for a second, i saw your dress and i was sure it’s a Mary Katrantzou dress. great look, my favourite so far!

    So we’re all pretty much in agreement that this goes up for BDOTW, yeah? 😉

    • Fashion Critic September 12, 2012 at 04:05 #

      ha ha…no way

      • Teleholic September 12, 2012 at 09:50 #

        FC, I don’t say this because I’m a fan of you or the amount of work you put into this website. I don’t say this because you’re the one wearing this dress. I say this because this is literally BDOTY-worthy for me. From head to toe it’s styled perfectly. The fact that you were able to pull off that sharp color-contrast/print with aplomb, that you ROCKED this look, makes it worthy of BDOTY. The hair, the shoes, the bag. Oh my gosh I can keep going. Seriously, this is at least BDOTW for me, don’t be too humble ’cause you’re smokin’ 😉 lol but I mean it, you look absolutely amazing and it’s okay to recognize that in yourself.

        • Fashion Critic September 12, 2012 at 10:40 #

          HAAA….Oh my…that is high praise indeed.

          Thanks for that ego boost 😉

          • Amy September 12, 2012 at 19:22 #

            This needs to go on BDOTW, I haven’t seen anyone rock M Katrantzou so well since Keira Knightley(back in the day). There’s nothing I dislike about that look.
            Btw you were featured in fabsugar best dressed NYFW list I think

    Oh Mylanta, you look amazing!!! It’s hard to rock a Katrantzou, but Miss Catherine, you are killin’ it!

    To quote Clueless…”Nice stems!”

    With so many red-carpet events to follow, the seasons’s new arrivals, plus looking great for NYFW yourself and maintaining the website, its wonder how you manage it. You’re pretty amazing!

    • Fashion Critic September 11, 2012 at 19:25 #

      Thanks it’s not easy x

  12. Emmeline September 11, 2012 at 18:57 #

    Those colors are so striking. Gorgeous outfit!

  13. Priscilla September 11, 2012 at 18:27 #

    Catherine! Just checking to see if you knew — you’re featured on The Cut’s Fashion Week street style! I saw you on there and immediately had to make sure you knew. Stunning. Not many can pull Mary off. The color are great on your skin, fit… everything.


    • Fashion Critic September 11, 2012 at 19:25 #

      Thank you…I will check it out

  14. Parvati September 11, 2012 at 18:08 #

    Wow, this is a great look, FC! And the accessories complement it beautifully!

  15. Hannah September 11, 2012 at 16:45 #

    I ADORE this dress. I aways say that Mary Katrantzou doesn’t get worn enough on the red carpet, and when she does she gets ruined by hideous shoes (I will never forgive LeeLee Sobieski for those ankle boots!). It is a gorgeous colour with your skin tone, and I love that you didn’t play it safe with the bag or shoes, you make pulling off bright colours and loud prints look so easy!
    Hope you are enjoying fashion week 🙂

  16. miele September 11, 2012 at 16:43 #

    So adventurous. Ive been loving your style — you don’t play it safe at all! Except for the hair, which looks fine, but i keep imagining you with something freer and funkier. Maybe a more natural hair look? In any case, you rock it!

  17. cartouche September 11, 2012 at 16:12 #

    definitely my favorite look of yours so far! i love that little bag but where did you put all your stuff (ipad, etc.)? i always carry my life around with me so i have a hard time with tiny bags

    • Fashion Critic September 11, 2012 at 16:37 #

      I had my bigger bag with me during the day, and a smaller bag for the evening

  18. Moxie September 11, 2012 at 16:06 #

    Fabulous — I love that you’re not afraid of color.
