    In NYC we are super lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing cultural events! We

    have art museums, music festivals, galleries, the ballet, etc. One of our great institutions

    here is the Metropolitan Opera aka the Met. Recently we teamed up with our designer

    ASHLEYlauren to dress one of the Met's mezzosoprano opera singers, Edyta Kulczak,

    for a performance at the Plaza! The star studded event honored Martha Stewart and

    raised funds for many excellent causes. Edyta looked and sounded amazing in her

    Our Faves from the Met Gala 2016



    As lovers of fashion we look forward to the red carpet at the annual Met Gala every year!

    This year we actually had the opportunity to go to the red carpet and get a birdseye view

    of the action. The theme this year was "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of

    Technology," which explored the relatshionship between hand made and machine made

    clothing. The red carpet was filled with hand embroidered dresses and technological

    wonders. Our top pick had to be Claire Danes in a demure Zach Posen ball gown

    encrusted with thousands of LED lights. We also picked Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace,

    Zendaya in Micheal Kors, Sarah Jessica Parker in Monse, Taylor Swift in Louis Vuitton,

    and Poppy Delevingne in Marchesa. Enjoy!

    NYFW Thomas Wylde

    #NYFW New York Fashion Week

    With NewYorkDress and Olga Parkers



    Fashion never sleeps and certainly a little snow didn't frighten the magnitude of stylists,

    editors, photographers, bloggers and celebrities strutting toward their seats for the

    Thomas Wylde Fall/Winter 2016 Runway show during NYFW. 



    The venue was all the historical glamour, situated inside the Skylight at Moynihan

    Station Postal?Office. The interior arrangement was quite pristine, with a TRESemmé

    hair bar - in case one needs a quick blow-dry restyling before the next show. An "E!"

    sponsored interactive runway where everyone can record, email and share their 8

    seconds of runway spotlight.  While waiting for the Thomas Wylde show to begin, I

    relaxed and sipped on a tall glass of water in a press designated lounge, vibrantly

    decorated with framed provocative editorials of supermodels Kate Moss, Joan Smalls,

    Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. I felt like I was sitting in my dream living

    room decorated with lush contemporary decor provided courtesy of Fendi Casa, with

    exotic fur covered sofas, pillows in zebra and bright yellow rabbit skins.


    Once inside the "The Dock" the fashion show was soon to begin: the lights dimmed,

    high-energy music started to play and the first model emerged with a so much passion in

    her walk one could feel her energy across the room. She was wearing a vibrant crimson

    fur-collared cashmere cape. The new Thomas Wylde "90291" & "Through the Looking

    Glass" Capsule collection - collaboration with Walt Disney was definitely something out

    of a fairy tale.  I loved the collection which followed a "Red, White and Black" color

    scheme, and included menswear tailored coats with embellished sleeves, capes, and

    cocktail dresses with plunging V neckline. The models clad in the eclectic glamorous

    collection emerged one by one for the runway finale. They paced down the runway

    together as the audience applauded the designer as she bowed in gratitude at the head of

    the runway.



    After the show I went backstage and was happy to meet the creative director of Thomas

    Wylde – Jene Park. I compliment her on the incredible designs, collection and show.

    Jene Park was quite bubbly, excited and thrilled at the response she received, giving

    interviews to press and posing for photos. The event was star studded including

    attending celebrities Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls, Olivia Culpo, Nicky

    Hilton, Chantel Jeffries, Karrueche Tran, Jane Notar whom all came to show their

    support wearing designs from the Thomas Wylde collection.


    It was an amazing treat to attend the Thomas Wylde show - a Special Thank you to

    NewYorkDress.com for this treat. NYFW is always such an exciting and thrilling time of

    the year, during which all the fashion devotees and professionals come together in

    celebration and support of the new collections. I will admit NYFW feels like New Years

    Eve, but better because it happens twice a year and the thrill can be relived with each

    collection shown.

    Happy Fashion Week darlings!

    Xoxo,

    Olga Parkers

    Valentines Day with Olga Parkers
    Friday February 12, 2016 5 Comments

    Happy Valentine's Day

    From NewYorkDress and Olga Parkers Jewelry



    That crisp February day when: florists get dozens upon dozens of orders for a "Dozen

    Red Roses", the taste of chocolate covered strawberries is on everyone's mind,

    champagne is sparkling away in tall flutes and city dwellers are either coupled walking

    hand-in-hand to candlelight dinners or hosting sarcastically humorous "anti-love"

    parties. That day is none other than Valentine's Day!



    I love a fun festive holiday, and as many of you know I love to get dressed up accordingly.

    My favorite color is definitely red and so the occasion calls for a 'Dress to Impress'

    ensemble and a charming companion to accompany me to a Valentine’s Day evening.

    I called upon my good friend to join me in the V-Day festivities so we could brave

    the love struck crowd together.


    My friend arrived to find me pondering over the various jewelry options I can pair with

    my drop-dead gorgeous MADISON JAMES mermaid gown in the most vivid Lipstick red

    color. I wanted to highlight the prominent Sweetheart neckline - so I first opted for the

    "Cleopatra Gold Tassel Necklace" from my OLGA PARKERS JEWELRY collection. After

    careful evaluation in the mirror and some very helpful advice from my friend - I decided

    that the "Gothic Neckcollar" in Hematite Gunmetal would be best. I paired it with my

    newest "Wrap Bead Bracelets" and stackable "Black Widow rings".



    The strapless MADISON JAMES gown was so stunningly exuberant. The mermaid

    silhouette, as pronounced as it was still conveyed elegance and utter chic simplicity. I

    especially admired the beaded waist detail which lead to a full floor length skirt. All I can

    think of was the iconic film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and yes I felt ever-so-slightly like a

    modern day Audrey Hepburn.


    The Valentine's Day festivities awaited and so with the sun setting over the skyscraper

    horizon of New York we were off to embrace the Valentine's Day evening.



    After all, Valentine's Day is about appreciating love of all kinds, so spend the evening

    with your Bae or great friends! Dress up in your finest and find some champagne with

    strawberries to savor.

    XOXO, Olga Parkers

    The Art Scene with Olga Parkers
    Friday January 08, 2016 Post a comment

    The Art Scene with Olga Parkers



    One of the many reasons I love fashion is due to the endless styling possibilities that can

    be created around an important dress. By accessorizing correctly with some chic

    accessories, such as shoes, jewelry and makeup, one dress can be worn on various

    occasions to different events.

    My favorite dress of the season was a sophisticated strapless dress by Sherri Hill, I loved

    this dress so much that I could not keep it hidden in my closet. Luckily, I had some

    glamorous events to attend: one being a Wedding Reception and an Art Gallery

    Exhibition Reception of artist Morgan Fisher at Bortolami Gallery. Both events were on

    the same day so I strategically had to style the dress so that it would translate from the

    fashionable Art Scene Reception to the formal Wedding reception in an outdoor garden,

    all the while looking flawless.


    To accessorize, I selected a gorgeous Faux-fur shawl in a pastel pale blush shade, which

    was several shades lighter from the Silver, Beige and pearl-like neutral color scheme of

    the dress but looked sensational layered together. The shoes were very important to

    complete this look so I opted for a beige suede stiletto pump with silver crystal details,

    which matched the undertones of the dress ever so slightly. Picture 1930’s glamour,

    adorned with luxurious textures of various lace, crystals, plush suede all beautiful in

    unison. The styled outfit was indeed ideal for both occasions: I re-positioned the shawl in

    different ways around my shoulders during the wedding for a luxe evening look, and

    draped over one shoulder for the day gallery reception.

    The overall styled look was very light and pretty, so I decide that slender jewelry would

    be best. I wore the Marie Antoinette Tassel Necklace from the Olga Parkers Jewelry

    Collection, in a Rose gold and Gunmetal finish styling to loop the tassels through center

    of bead strand lariat. The rings I wore, were ever so slightly placed on three fingers, each

    with a couple of midi Black Widow rings. As for the makeup I created an intense Smokey

    eye with bronze eye shadow finishing with black liner, volumizing mascara and blush

    pink lips. My manicure was a dusty lavender polish.


    I loved my outfit and the Sherri Hill dress so much I didn’t want the night to end. I

    received numerous compliments on the dress and the accessories. The ‘Gatsby inspired -

    modern day fashionista’ look flawlessly transitioned to both events. This look can be

    worn to many other events, such as a homecoming, a birthday celebration or a New

    Year’s celebration. I guess I’ll have to find other events to attend so I can flaunt the

    gorgeous little dress.

    A Gothic Masquerade
    Thursday November 05, 2015 3 Comments
    title image


    A Gothic Masquerade!



    I received an invitation to a Venetian Masquerade Ball. The dress code: strictly requiring

    masks, the venue: mysteriously somewhere in New York City only to be revealed the day

    of the Ball. I was overwhelmed by excitement and began to plan my attire. My vision was

    to look like an exquisite flapper-girl from a Gatsby banquet with influences from the

    Phantom of the Opera.



    Being a fashion enthusiast I was beyond excited! I love to dress up for all occasions,

    especially so for a glamorous Masquerade Ball. This invitation was especially dear to me

    - as I starred in the Fashion feature film in promotion for this Venetian Masquerade Ball.

    I was so proud to have my handcrafted Tassel Lariat Necklaces and rings from the

    OLGA PARKERS JEWELRY Collection highlighted in the film.


    I immediately scouted for a mask but not just any mask, something authentic to the

    theme. I found the perfectly flattering laser-cut mask in Black Gunmetal with crystal

    details and scalloped edges. The mask was cleverly concealing just enough to make my

    identity nearly unrecognizable, while revealing skin beneath and accentuating my eyes

    creating a sultry cat-eye.



    On my quest to find The Dress - I came across a breathtaking black Scala slender gown,

    delicately beaded with black and silver sequins in an Art-Deco fashion. I instantly fell in

    love with the long length, the revealing back and the deep V necklines, edges outlined in

    linear silver sequins further accentuating the décolleté. I have always found backless

    silhouettes to be extremely flattering to all body types. The backless neckline was very

    modestly sexy, flattering and above all extremely Elegant. The gown fit perfectly over my

    curvy physique, the ornate lines of the beading elongating and slenderizing. I love how

    glamorous and extravagant it looked! The style was ideal and just what I had envisioned!



    The day of the Masquerade Ball - I selected from my box of OLGA PARKERS

    JEWELRY
    treasures the Grand Gothic Ash Tassel Necklace in metallic gunmetal. The

    long length of the necklace allowed for folding the lariat in half and delicately

    intertwining the beads before looping the tassel ends through the middle creating a

    necktie. The matte and metallic texture of the dark Gunmetal Hematite beads

    complimented the glimmering beads on the dress. The necklace ever so gracefully

    positioned in the middle in my décolleté, framed by the silver edging on the extravagant

    Scala gown. I selected several midi-rings to wear on each hand for a delicately poised

    look, stacking the blackened Silver Black Widow rings alongside the yellow gold Square

    shank rings.



    My makeup look was inspired by the style of vintage Hollywood Starlets. I made sure my

    complexion was porcelain-like, contouring where appropriate and highlights along the

    brow arch, top of cheekbones, and cupids bow of my lips for an extra glow. I focused on

    my eyes by creating a winged cat eye over natural tone eye shadows and volumizing

    mascara. I finished the look by painting a red pout using a crimson matte shade lipstick

    from YSL.



    To complete the look I wore a pair of black patent leather stiletto pumps, sky high of

    course and a matching miniature black clutch to enclose my lipstick, compact mirror and

    perfume. The evening felt like a Whimsical Fairytale and I, Cinderella, attending a Ball,

    except the banquet would continue past the midnight hours and I was swept away in a

    black limousine. Dreams Do Come True!

    That Cinderella Feeling
    Wednesday October 07, 2015 6 Comments
    title image


    That Cinderella Feeling!



    I live for the days where you get to get up early, get your hair and makeup done, and slip

    into a beautiful gown to go to a party. It makes me feel so nostalgic - like I'm back in my

    princess PJs and I'm watching Cinderella for the first time. Nothing comes close to when

    you look at yourself in the mirror after you're all dolled up and all you can do is twirl

    around. I love that feeling and I just long for those invites to weddings or birthday

    parties were I can get all dressed up!


    For me - Fall is a season of new beginnings. As a recent graduate, I find it extremely hard

    not to miss homecoming season or even the prospect of some balls and events in the

    early months of school! I, also, have a few co-workers and friends that are getting

    hitched this year which is always an excuse to buy a dress and a new pair of shoes! But

    honestly I think I stumbled upon a winner with this Sherri Hill two-piece. It has such an

    elegant sweep train and the most beautiful beadwork that I just couldn't pass it up. I

    actually wore something extremely similar to this dress in a navy blue color with a slit on

    the side for my graduation party. BOTH of these Sherri Hill dresses make you look and

    feel like a princess.

    Mini-Guide to the Perfect Wedding Timeline
    Thursday September 17, 2015 Post a comment
    title image


    Mini-Guide to the Perfect Wedding

    Timeline



    Not every wedding timeline is exactly the same. Depending on your religion and the

    length of time between your engagement and the actual wedding date, you might have

    more time or less time to complete wedding planning essentials. Planning a wedding,

    even a simple one, can be stressful. It is important to make a list and a timeline of what

    you expect to accomplish and set specific goals and deadlines. Here is a sample,

    simplified mini-guide to the perfect wedding timeline.



    Up to One Year Before



    Engagement Party. Some couples forgo this party, but family members may

    appreciate an engagement party to celebrate the event.



    Set the Date. Once you set the date, you can start making actual plans. Therefore,

    setting a date should be a priority after you are engaged.



    Choose the Wedding Party. The sooner you do this, the better. Your wedding party,

    particularly the maid of honor and best man, should be put in charge of specific tasks to

    alleviate the stress on the bride or groom.



    Establish Colors and Themes. Choosing these early on will save you stress. When

    you choose your colors early, you can also start hunting for sales with decorations,

    stationery, and anything else you need with your colors or themes.



    Start Shopping Around for a Venue and Decorations. Many venues will allow

    you to at least put down a deposit for use on a specific date up to a year in advance. Try

    to limit the amount of deposits you make, however, as many are non-refundable.



    Start Wedding Dress Shopping. While it’s true that a lot can happen in a year, the

    wedding dress shopping can take a while. Keep your eyes open for that perfect gown

    starting now.



    8 Months Before



    Shop for Bridesmaids Dresses. Whether you’re making your own or purchasing

    from a designer, get your bridesmaids together for fittings and get this taken care of well

    in advance.



    Plan Honeymoon. If you’re going somewhere exotic for your honeymoon, now is a

    good time to jump on purchasing tickets, reserving hotels, applying for passports, and

    anything else you need to do to make the experience go smoother.



    Send Out Save-the-Date Cards. While these are common for most weddings, Save-

    the-Date cards traditionally go out six to eight months before the big day. This gives your

    guests ample time to prepare for your big day.



    Cute Wedding Invitations

    3 Months Before



    Send Out Invitations. Official wedding invitations should go out two to three months

    before the wedding day, but you can always send them out a bit earlier. Always give your

    guests the plenty of time to prepare



    Order Cake. Your cake designer will want to sit down with you to discuss your

    expectations and make plans for delivery and setup.



    Take Care of Wedding Day Transportation. Whether you’re arriving and leaving

    in a carriage or limo, make sure you know how you’re getting to and from the wedding

    venue, including transportation to the salon if you’re getting your hair styled.



    Arrange for Tuxedo Rentals. Ideally, the groom should take care of this.

    Groomsmen should be fitted for their tuxedos. Arrangements should be made to ensure

    the tuxedos get to where they need to be on time.



    Hire a Photographer. You can hire a photographer sooner, but you definitely want to

    have one booked by the time you’re three months from your wedding date.



    1 Month Before



    Bridal Gown Fitting. Have your final fitting and any last alterations made to your

    wedding dress.



    Create Wedding Program and Timeline. This will help you to visualize how and

    when everything should happen on your big day.



    Take Care of Marriage License. Find out what you need to do to apply for a

    marriage license. Some areas require drug testing or a waiting period before the license

    is granted, so it is important to take care of this in advance.



    1 Week Before



    Confirm Reservations, Guest Count, Caterer, and Everything Else. With one

    week to go, you need to make sure that the venue will be ready, the caterer will have food

    there, and who is and is not coming. Confirm all other important events as well,

    including honeymoon arrangements, transportation, and roles of the wedding party

    members.



    Create a Guest Seating Chart. Make a visual chart of who will sit where so there is

    no confusion and everyone has a place.



    Arrange for Post-Wedding Cleanup and Returns. You and your spouse should

    be able to focus on the honeymoon after the party is said and done. Arrange for someone

    else to clean up the venue and return any rental items.



    1 Day Before



    Go to Rehearsal. If you are having a rehearsal, go to it and enjoy.



    Make Sure You Have Rings, Marriage License, and Other Essential Items.

    The maid of honor and best man should hold onto the rings on the big day. The night

    before your wedding, ensure that you have the rings with you, the marriage license, and

    any other essential items such as passports for honeymoon travel.



    The Big Day



    Enjoy. You’ve spent the last year planning for this big day, so let it all unfold and try to

    enjoy it. It can be a whirlwind of emotions, but it will also be satisfying to see all of your

    careful planning come to fruition.

    Date Night with MissLaur


    Hi everyone! I'm Laur from www.MissLaur.com. Ever since I was little girl I've always

    been into dress up and when I started dance classes - I felt like my whole world took a

    turn for the better. From the tutu skirts to the awesome leotards we got to wear - I was

    truly in Heaven. This was one of the main reasons I started my own blog. It was my

    outlet to share my love of fashion and beauty with my friends, family and readers. I

    remember buying my quinceanera dress, my junior and senior prom dresses, and even

    the dress I wore to the launch of my bakery from NewYorkDress.com!


    I usually go on NewYorkDress's site at least two times a week but one day I saw this

    particular piece. There is just something so powerful about pearls and polka dots! I

    couldn't help but be mesmerized by this cute and chic Sherri Hill two-piece. What I love

    about this two-piece is that it is a go-to piece for a wedding (because of the details),

    birthday party (because of the polka dots) and even a date night. I'm definitely the type

    of girl that loves to get dressed up no matter the occasion so I wore this for a date night

    at one of my favorite restaurants - Waterside Restaurant - along the waterfront that has a

    perfect view of the city. I paired it with a vintage Coach purse I found in my mom's closet

    and a few jewelry pieces from TJ Maxx! Everyone was complimenting me on how

    delicate the top was with the pearls and how chic the skirt was. They could NOT believe

    that they were a pair!

    5 Amazing Makeup Tips


    To help you look amazing on your big night out!



    Makeup can be a tricky monster to perfect, especially on a special occasion. These 5

    simple tricks, will help you master your makeup and feel your best on your next big night

    out!


    1. The Dot Method



    Ever tried to wing your eyeliner and end up with asymetrical wings? We all have, but

    with this simple trick you can easily make both eyes the same. Here's how: Apply eye

    liner to the lid as usual on both eyes stopping at the outer corner. When you're ready to

    do your wing, just simply make a dot on both sides where you want the wing to end.

    Connect the dot to your already completed liner at the outer corner and your done. If you

    need to perfect the line, my recommendation is to take a q-tip with a little eye makeup

    remover on it and clean up the line. Dab the eye with a cotton ball to remove any makeup

    remover left over and you're done!



    2. Fixative



    There are a ton of makeup fixing sprays on the market, but by far the most cost effective

    is by Evian. You can get the 5 ox bottle for about $10, so it's really the best bet. Spritz

    your face before you start applying foundation for a healthy glow. Spritz again when

    makeup is complete and this spray will help your makeup stay on longer, without drying!

    It's also just amazingly refreshing!



    3. The Cupids Bow



    Want the appearance of fuller lips? Well this trick will have your pout on point! After

    lipstick or gloss has been applied to the lips take a small amout of any shimmery skin

    toned eyeshadow (1 or 2 shades lighter than your skin) and apply to the cupids bow. You

    can use a brush, your finger, or... finally a use for those small sponge appliquators that

    come with your eyeshadows. The added highlight adds the appearance of fullness to the

    lips, and you can't beat that!



    4. Soft Perfect Brows



    Ever wonder what that thing was good for? Well we have 2 uses that will make this

    inexpensive brow brush your best friend! Brows are important, they frame your face and

    when they're perfectly accentuated seem to complete a makeup look. But there is nothing

    worse than hard, dark, obviously drawn on brows and with this trick your brows will

    always be soft and perfect. The trick is to pencil your brows with a pencil 2 shades lighter

    than your hair color (or a soft cold taupe if you're extremely blond). Once you're done

    use the soft bristly end of this tool and work out the product. Brush the hairs back and

    forth through the brow and up and down at the very front near your nose. Brows, check!



    5. Unclumped Lashes



    Do you want this look without any clumps and no falsies? It's easy with any mascara and

    a brow brush. The small comb side of the brush is made to separate lashes, but have you

    ever applied mascara and tried to use the tool to unclump them? It's a huge mess! The

    trick is to use the tool to apply the mascara, not to fix it! Take your fave mascara and run

    the brush over the comb side of the tool. Once it has product on it comb through your

    lashes. Repeat a few times and you will have perfectly separated and elongated lashes. I

    bet you never thought a brow brush would be so handy!
