W by Worth Showroom Shopping

Hi there!

I was recently invited by Claire at the W by Worth Showroom on 5th avenue and 57th Street (Worth New York's ready to wear brand) to come in for a fitting. Francisco and I went to my appointment and he photographed me candidly looking through and trying on some gorgeous pieces, and I fell in love with the W by Worth line as well as the experience of shopping at the showroom and here's why you will too.

Shopping at the showroom allows for a more personal experience much like meeting with a personal stylist or shopper while having the store to yourself. Claire understood my style aesthetic from my blog and Instagram as well as what I told her I liked, and we both pulled pieces for me to try on. What she pulled for me that I didn't initially gravitate towards on the rack I immediately understood why she had me try on when I did.

Olive isn't a color I wear a ton of and these pieces above were my favorite in terms of their effortlessness, chic, and the color working with my skin tone and hair color. I normally gravitate towards color and pattern, black, or jewel tones as you can see from the pieces I pulled to try on. I walked away with the gorgeous olive sweater tunic and might need to get this olive leather mod dress; it would look so fabulous with a turtleneck and tights underneath!

I can't wait to continue to shop this way, it was such a fun shopping appointment with zero stress, lines to wait in to checkout, or clothes to send back if they didn't fit. Claire gets me, go see her at the showroom! Worth headquarters are located in the Garment District if Worth New York is more up your alley.

Xo,
