Naturally Fashionable: Date Night

via ClosetConfections





{Zara Dress, Miu Miu Ankle Boots (similar here and lower cost option  here), Chloe Sunglasses c/o Ideeli (lower cost option here), Imported Cltuch via eBay (tons of auctions here, or splurge on the real deal here), Bulova Watch, Henri Bendel, Forever 21 & Street Vendor Bracelets, Handcrafted Rings from a trip to Nicaragua}

Sometimes I like to pretend that I can still hang out all night and not pay for it the next morning.  It’s time like those that I’m painfully reminded that my days of being a night owl are loooong over.  I’m not sure what possessed me to see a late showing of The Artist last Saturday and then try to top the night off with dinner and drinks at Dos Caminos.  By the time I hobbled into a cab a little after midnight, I was completely ready to turn into a pumpkin (my cute way of saying that I was dead tired and looked the part!).

In any case, you don’t want to see the pics from that actual evening (trust me).  So instead, here’s me all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (after waking up at the crack of noon on Sunday) wearing the exact same ensemble.

*****************************
I’m a career gal, living in NYC while attempting to climb the corporate ladder one fashionable footstep at a time. I always dreamed of a glamorous job in the fashion industry, but instead I became a technology geek and now spend most of my days talking bits and bytes with IT Directors. Even though khakis and polos are the standard uniform within my industry, I prefer dresses and high heels. The only fashion rules I follow are to have fun and keep it classy... everything else is fair game! I look forward to sharing both my on- and off-duty looks with the Curly Nikki community each week. I am literally ALL OVER the web, and you can connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Pinterest.

Love the reddish tones in your hair. Henna?

I dig your rings and bangle bracelets. I always struggle with accessories.

@Elaine Thanks! That's my natural hair color. I've never dyed or highlighted my hair, even when I was using a relaxer. I've actually been afraid to try henna for fear of how it will turn out, but I may cave in to help cover up some of my grays, lol!
