WVW: MNG by MANGO Reveal at jcpenney*

In my last post I shared the awesome jcpenney-produced video of my MNG by MANGO Mission in Barcelona, which I embarked on as a stand-in for the very fabulous, totally prolific Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparkly. Here are some shots of what I wore in New York for the reveal of that video and the group photo we shot in Barcelona.

If you’ve been over to Kristina’s blog, you saw these shots and more in her MNG by MANGO Reunion at jcpenney post. If you missed that post, whatcha waitin’ for? Get over there! Cause she’s also got a little reveal of her own…a super fab, limited edition GLITTERATI Sergeant Sparkle blouse she designed that you need in your closet!

*WVW = What V Wore
Dress: Banana Republic • Belt: Diane von Furstenburg • Boots: Burberry • Bracelets: Abbey Dawn by Avril Lavigne
Clutch: American Apparel • Makeup: Tom Ford Beauty (deets in a future post)

I was thrilled to see the other girls again, but spending some quality time with Kristina was the icing on the cake. Love her. Here we are just before departing from the event for a crazy rickshaw ride through Manhattan, followed by an even crazier dinner in which the waiter confiscated one of my spiked bracelets, wore it all night, then passed it to a patron until I retrieved it during dessert. Which was on the house due to his shenanigans.

I mean, really, people? New York, what’s that about? I should have lambasted him with it. Next time.

  1. Yowsers! You are one foxxxxy lady in that scarlet frock! Stunning! Plus i’m loving the eye makeup, belt, boots, errrr everything!

    Have a great week gorgeous!

  2. You looked beautiful 🙂 And I think I might have tried to swipe the bracelet too. I’ve been eyeing them every since I saw them the first time on your blog.

  3. I love the way you wear over-the-knee boots! Normally I don’t like them but on you they’re great. (You should do a “how to” post!)
    Looks like a fab time was had by all!

  4. I had the most amazing time, and it was all because of you. We are peas in a pod! I had so much fun on that rickshaw, and I’m surprised you didn’t post the vid! (although…come to think of it…I didn’t post mine either!)

    Thank you for the super sweet link to my Glitterati blouse! And thank you for buying one of your very own! I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it on you!

  5. You two are way adorable together! 🙂 Totally loving your glam look, which makes me lust even more for a pair of my very own OTK boots. Damn I need to live in a cooler climate so I can better justify a pair in black AND brown this season.

  6. Looking stunning. Loved all of your pictures and your writing about your Barcelona trip, but so busy can’t hardly comment anymore on anything 🙂 Love the colour of that Banana Republic dress, lately, im just working so much I never dress up, and you just made me miss that hehe.

  7. GIRL! You in those boots = perfection.
    Perfect amount of sexy with the sweet dress:)
    Love it all.
    Hope you have a great turkey day.

  8. You look SO amazingly flawless in this red ensemble!! The second photo is my fav. If you have to update your biz cards puh-LEEZE include that outfit shot of you!!


  9. You look like a star! I love the whole outfit, and the bracelets!!! Red makes your skin and hair glow, it fits perfectly to winter type like you. Beautiful! 🙂

  10. So this is what I’ve been missing?? Arrgghh…You defo rock the celeb look (hope that’s not a bad term). It’s great to see you girls had a fab time!
    Have a fantastic weekend 🙂

  11. I don’t blame the waiter for swiping one of those cuffs! They are fantastic. I love the boots but you know me, I am boot crazed! Especially over the knee! Awesome dress! As everyone else has said, red looks great on you. It is my all time favorite color! Looks like a great time and Kristina picked the right woman as her stand-in. You rock!

  12. This is one of my favourite looks! You look gorgeous in the second shot! The waiter would have got a spike up his nose cheeky s*d! Now, would I be being too greedy if I asked Father Christmas for this entire outfit?!

  13. I cannot think of anything more fabulous than attending something like this! Your makeup is flawless, whoa … I love the boots (crucial staple item) and those Avril bangles look quite fierce V in a sophisticated way!

  14. You’ve been blessed to do so many exciting things recently! I love this outfit you’re wearing. Those bracelets are kind of a must have! xoxo
