When planning all my outfits for New York, I got a little frustrated, as much as I wanted to wear all my favorite combinations of fall attire, the weather had other plans and decided to call for rain and humidity. On the day of Lucky FABB however, I got my wish for a relatively cool and rainy day. Out of all my NYFW outfits, this one was by far my favorite. This vintage blazer has been in my closet since spring, but went unworn until NY. I love the deep purple, velvet elbow patches and purple buttons. I paired it with a new dark eggplant hat from H&M and a J.Crew dress, and the most versatile shoes in my closet from ModCloth. This specific dark purple is my all-time favorite color, but is so hard to find, whenever I come across a piece of clothing of this hue, I immediately scoop it up. You will definitely be seeing this outfit again this fall!

Lucky FABB was a great experience, it was incredible listening to what Diane von Furstenberg and Rachel Roy in particular had to say, two independent women who managed to remain relatable despite their fame and notoriety.
