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

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):
