A NIGHT OUT IN NYC WITH FROCK



I was just in NYC this summer visiting my friends at Frock and I felt just like a kid in a candy store!
I've posted my dream outfit from their boutique. I passed on the Bill Blass nude dress above I was afraid of getting into too much trouble if I wore that ;)
The Chanel necklace is fab and a great timeless piece and Alaia now who doesn't love an Alaia black leather jacket?
Please join them for this great event!

FROCK & FASHION'S NIGHT OUT
Fashion’s Night Out is upon us once again. On Friday evening, September 10th, FROCK cordially invites you to The Garden at Four Seasons Hotel New York from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. to witness a unique shopping event. The Garden in the soaring I.M.
