The weather is starting to warm up a bit in New York again (though I still suggest layering as certain days are still cold), and I was recently able to attend my boyfriend's closing night party for Paul Taylor Dance Company's Lincoln Center season at the David Koch theater, which was held at the Gansevoort Hotel rooftop in the Meat Packing District. To this occasion I wanted to look Boho chic, so I chose to wear my favorite Hoss Intropia dress.
Hoss Intropia is a beautiful design house from Spain which I discovered via my aunt when visiting family in Madrid a few summers ago. They are like a high end Anthropologie, and their elegant classic silhouettes with a hint of bohemian style really caught my eye. This dress is even more special to me because I went shopping with my step Grandmother Isabel (a Spaniard) on that day when she surprised me by gifting it to me, and it was the last time we had a date together just the two of us before her passing of cancer within a year of that visit. The fashion scene in Madrid is electric as Spaniards always dress tastefully accentuating their femininity in a really elegant way. Nobody goes grocery shopping in Madrid without being in a put together outfit. I carried a lot of Madrid with me moving to CT as an 8 year-old, and continued to build my style on my upbringing with I later moved to New York City twelve years ago.
I paired the dress with my new Arezzo brown wedges from Brazil which I bought last fall when shopping with my cousin Camila the bride-to-be just before her wedding. I was supposed to be helping her out (bridesmaid duties called) to buy honeymoon clothes, which we did successfully, but I couldn't help getting myself a pair of shoes...and maybe some sunglasses. Brazilian shoes are always made so beautifully. Most of the shoes I buy in the States end up being a pair that was "made in Brazil." The platforms are brown with beige rope detail woven as the straps on the foot and ankle. I topped off the outfit with a pair of gold circular earrings from a small boutique in Brazil (a gift from my cousin Camila in Sao Paulo), and my Kendra Scott long necklace with gold detail and one blue stone for a pop of color.
Of course long soft curls in your hair always compliment a boho look, but messy hair or a beach wave is perfect also!
