While I opted for schoolgirl chic on Day 1, I felt Day 2 called for color!

The kind folks over at Rent the Runway were nice enough to send over a few dresses for me to flaunt during Fashion Week, and I was instantly drawn to Thakoon’s So Electrifying Dress (retail $990, rental $125):

I loved the hot pink color and the saucy peak of leg! The dress was a little racy for daytime, so I decided to tone it down a bit with a similarly vibrant yellow Theory Stretch Cotton blazer, and complete with a bold lime Proenza Schouler PS1, and neon orange Christian Louboutin wedges (at the end of the day, it’s all about comfort).

I’ve been playing around with a few different hairstyles for Fashion Week, so opted to pull my braids into a high pony to let the outfit play center stage.

A few swipes of MAC’s cremesheen glass lusher, richer gloss, and I was ready to take on the day!

What do you think?
