Being a crazed shopper, Black Friday is literally my Super Bowl. Better yet – I found out this past year I was going to be just outside of Manhattan for Black Friday. Now imagine the hype on my face… I am not kidding when I tell you Thanksgiving night, I came up with a game plan for where I will be at the next day, and where I will be shopping online.
The next day I was ready to hit the ground running. Long story short – it takes forever to get anywhere in NYC. I used to live in New York for a few summers, so you would think I would have thought this one through – holiday, shopping, trains, subways, and lots of people. At the end of the day, I had really only hit a couple of shops I wanted (do not worry – my shopping continued throughout our trip and my online shopping conscience was a feeling a liiiitle guilty by the time we got home!).
Even though I did not get to all of the shops on my list, I found a few STEALS – this green and black lace velvet romper from Topshop being one of them! I have been obsessed with anything velvet, and this color green is so different! When I found this at the Soho location, there were only a couple sizes left – naturally, the sizes surrounding my actual size. So, I decided to size up and it was a great decision since it gives my legs extra fabric, without looking like too much!
True Story: I actually wore this out shopping around my hometown the other day (at Nordstrom Rack), and I heard someone say “That is so cute – I would totally wear that for New Years” – so boom – that is what I did.
This romper is seriously so versatile and comfy, which is one of the reasons I love it. Pair it with trendy over the knee heeled boots, knee high boots, or even booties! Then add some simple gold jewelry, and you are set for a night out!
With that said, whoever is reading, please grab your champagne and raise a glass with me! Thanks for joining along!
