Fashion Now

This past Saturday I had the wonderful opportunity to be one of 4 judges in a "Model for the Day" contest.  This was an open casting call where the lucky chosen model will have the opportunity to walk the real runway with professional models during the Simon Fashion Show Now on October 1st at 7pm.

Other judges included Tim Ayers, Agency Director with Model Club Inc, Corinne Demadis, Booking Agent with Model Club Inc, and Candy O'Terry, Magic 106.7's on air personality.

For this event I wore a reversible Built by Wendy dress from Flock.  Flock is definitely becoming one of my favorite boutiques in Boston and Dani, one of the store owners is so stylish, knowledgeable, and helpful.
Built by Wendy Bauhaus side tie reversible dress,  Anthropologie belt (seen here), Ann Taylor booties (seen here), and earrings and bangle gifted from my lovely aunt Anjana and cousin Poonam from London
This is what the dress looks like without the belt. (sorry but the belt caused a few wrinkles) Next time I might turn the dress inside out and wear it as a navy dress. I think adding a pair of brown flat boots would create a really nice relaxed and casual look.

 Here is more information on the fashion events for those of you who live in the area.

Jenna said...

I'm contemplating purchasing this Built by Wendy dress from their website - and in searching around for reviews, I found your post. Do you have any advice on sizing? Does it fit large? I haven't been able to find anything about it online! Thanks!

style'n said...

@Jenna-it's a great dress because it's reversible. It's a bit big under the arms and if it's not belted it's also pretty big and baggy but still looks ok. I think I have a size small. It wrinkles easily too but overall I love it and I am glad I bought it
