There are many reasons why I love New York City from the uh-mazing fall that has just crept up on us all to the fact the I can order any type of food at all hours of the day and night to summer concerts in Central Park.  I love it all.

But…let’s be honest I totally love being in a city where designer sample sales are a normal occurrence.  A few months ago I was shooting an engagement session in Bowery, when mid-session I saw a sign for the Billy Reid sample sale that was ending later that afternoon.

I kept my calm, finished my shoot + sprinted to the sample sale.  Billy Reid has been one of my favorite designers for a few years now.  I love his southern roots, and eclectic take on timeless pieces.  Up until now though I have never owned anything from his collection.

This Safari dress was calling my name and I knew it could be a wardrobe staple, but when I tried it on I felt sorta dumpy.  However, growing up my mother always had a wonderful Safari dress so I bit the bullet and walked out of Billy Reid with this dress.  I went home and tried it on with an old belt I had + viola!  It’s feminine, classic, and will last me for years.

I’m so glad I bought it!  It’s great for summer with wedges, but also a good transitional fall and winter piece that I can wear with booties or these riding boots!

It’s all about versatility ladies!

XO,

Kat
