The Gem - NYFW - 1

I hadn’t really planned on what to wear with this custom Tidal Cool ballerina tutu prior to embarking on this adventure, so after sending like 4 different options to my incredibly talented and tolerant stylistChristina Imberlina, we determined the best course of action was donning it on top of this black long sleeve romper fromSerenDipity Boutique. New York had seen enough of my hiney frommy look the day before, and despite the sea of fabric – depending on a tutu’s diameter – you just really never quite know how close you are to exposing those undies.

The perfect complement to the purple of this tutu was this “Bags are Packed” electric blue polish ($10.50) from Ella+Mila! The luxury brand’s adorable elephant branding caught my eye a long time ago and I’ve been following them ever since. With “7-free” polishes (find out what that means and why it’s so important here), Ella+Mila’s initial launch product was Mommy & Me polish sets (dying of cuteness!). When Founder Narineh Bedrossian’s twin girls wanted to start painting their little fingers, Narineh needed to trust what was going on them! Ella+Mila has every color polish you could ever imagine – from fun, playful colors for your littles to soft, sophisticated options for you. Without any harmful chemicals, every polish is cruelty-free, vegan with PeTA certification and proudly made in the USA.
