Claire’s Life: Nuvo’s Official Launch Party Hosted by Rosa Acosta and Draya Michele + The Dream Hotel with Gabrielle Union
By Claire

Monday nights in New York city are a lot like Saturday nights in most parts of the world, as the media industry takes on the town for various soirées and booze fueled events. Last night, I had two parties on my schedule–a Nuvo Official Launch Party Hosted by Rosa Acosta and Draya Michele and Gabrielle Union’s birthday party at the Dream–so I slipped on a comfy striped leather sleeve dress by Cut 25, then tried my hand at mixing prints by slipping on a blue printed cardigan from Zara (previously worn here):

For some reason the look was giving me a Parisian/Cher from Clueless vibe, so I added a knit beret from J.Crew, Stuart Weitzman Knee High Boots, and my go-to Givenchy Nightingale.

I’ve been dreaming of stiletto nails, so went for it yesterday. Still don’t know how I feel about the blue crackle, though the length is kinda fun (except when I have to type, text, or do basically anything):

For the actual parties, I ditched the jacket and rocked the dress on its own:

What do you prefer, with the jacket or without?
Fashion Bomb photographer Marta couldn’t stick around for the actual festivities, though I did snag a few pictures on my Iphone (natch):

  3. Mely B says:

    WERK CLAIRE!! I love the whole look but especially covet your bag & boots =) Looks like a good time was had.

  4. Very cute, just gave me an idea on how to rock a dress with a similar print. P.S. I think Chef Roble is soooo sexy! Aooowww!

    cute :)

  7. lola says:

    WERK BISH!!! I love that you are having more fun with your looks but still keeping the classy and tailored Claire aesthetic we all know and love.

  8. robyn says:

    Claire you look too cute! I love everything abt it. The outfit looked great with and without the jacket! Great job!

  9. BellaP says:

    You look wonderful over the top as always and omgee your legs perfect

  10. cca says:

    love the entire look, the fit is perfection

  11. Star says:

    you look amazing (as usual). The crackle polish is neither here or there. I do think tho that if your doing stilettos simplicity is key as you are already calling attention. Where as any other length of nails the crackle really shines.

  12. Claire says:

    Thx y’all! The crackle seemed like a good idea, but no ma’am! I’m gonna go for something a bit more vampy, maybe an oxblood red. LOL. But seriously, yes definitely a darker color. Stay tuned! xoxo

  13. Erica says:

    Never commented here before, but I have to tell you that you looked absolutely gorgeous.

  14. KIMBERLY B says:

    I love this look on you absolutely gorgeous. You definitely have the legs for it (I’m jealous). I like the jacket with it but the dress by itself looks fashionable. The jacket does give the Cher look but you make it look sexier with a grown lady vibe…. I just can’t get over how great your legs look.

  15. NunyaBizniz says:

    Looking great Claire!!! I kinda hate your boots though, but that’s just me. Overall good loook, your greatest accessory is your smile.

  16. Anon says:

    Owwwwww! I keep telling, those legs honey!

  17. Sandra says:

    You looked great Claire. I love both combo with and without the jacket. I have to tell you that your Claire’s Life pots are some of my favorites. Keep it up mademoiselle. Merci. Love this site. I am on it everyday.

  18. HarlemVanity says:

    I likey! Very classic dope girl fresh.. with the earrings and blonde braids. Everyone looks good and lively ; )

  19. Marsha says:

    Love your print experiment! The whole look was great and you are beautiful as always.

  20. Bajan Candy says:

    You look really cute. I like the entire outfit.

  21. Shelly says:

    You are OWNING those blonde braids Claire!!! I love it.

  22. Terilili says:

    Love this look Claire! I prefer it with the jacket, but it looks great either way.

  23. Joanne_ says:

    you look great, i like it with the jacket more but either way i think it’s a fun look!

  24. Lis says:

    You look so chic and fantastic. I agree with Lola you still kept your classic aesthetic but the print mixing pumped it up. I always love your looks

  25. hotmama says:

    Your outfit is cute but your hair is not…You should pick a better style, that style is not becoming at all. You are a cute lady but your hair takes away from your looks…it makes you look unpolished and kind of dare I say cheap. I’m not trying to be mean I just wanted to honest and state my opinion. Im sorry if I offend you but I would rather someone be honest with me than flat out lie although everyone has different style and taste, I just think this takes away from the best you…jmo

  27. ALIANA says:

    … again i say if you are busty watch out for wearing high necklines.. it can make you look top heavy….

  28. Rebecca says:

    I’m getting a real 90′s vibe with the boots and beret hmm

  29. Chris styles says:

    Legs r killa! And I’m loving the boots :)

  30. mirage says:

    @Rebecca did you miss the Clueless reference???

  31. Jazzy says:

    I love the dress alone. I am not a big fan of the 2 prints together…the hat or the boots!! Maybe a cute pair of pumps. I would have done an extremely high ponytail with those gorgeous braids. Your accessories are on point too!!

  32. Sherrie says:

    knee high boots were made for you Claire, your legs look great in them, and I like the outfit better with the jacket for you.

  33. Bre Bre says:

    I like the dress Claire! I actually like it with or without the jacket. I’m not feeling the big braid boo…

  34. Anonymous says:

    Claire! Omg! The legs!

  35. Kahalia says:

    I live for the sleeves on that dress and the print is on.
    I usually like your braids, but them all together in one huge side braid was not a good look. It was just too thick. It reminded me of a Cabbage Patch Doll. I must say I loved the beret though… And of course the legs are killer! Thanks for sharing your life with us-looked like fun!

  36. Vick says:

    Love the mix prints an the boots were cing on the cake

  37. binks says:

    Claire you look like a little doll! Very cute and chic looks like a fun time

  38. A. Kristin says:

    You looked GREAT from head to toe! W/o the jacket is more fun. W/ = more conservative. You worked it either way!

  39. NickieLuv621 says:

    LOVE the look Claire!! Comfortable chic & sexy

  40. Keisha says:

    I like the look with the jacket, very stylish!!

  41. Dom says:

    Cute looks! Also, congrats on the photo in Glamour! I was shocked and happy to see a familiar face in the pages! You totally need to big that up on the site!

  42. Kimmy D. says:

    Cute Dress! Work it girl!


  43. Derianne says:

    the lovely Claire…that’s a cute outfit. love the nails!!!

  44. cindylou says:

    You have awesome legs n they look killer.however the look for me is an overall miss. I like where you were going with the mixed print idea but I tgink the prints were too similar to each other in style. I love that you were in on the leather sleeve trend but I this feature didn’t standout perhaps because of the busy pattern. Didn’t love the boots or the side braid either. A nice black platform pump , sky high would have been better

  45. cindylou says:

    Also agree with the comment about the neckline on the dress,a bit too high.

  46. Nia says:

    Love mixed prints! And your thighs look amazing! So jelly!

  47. Jones says:

    Claire you are so cute!!! Legs for days! GEESH!
