Before my unexpected hiatus, I was able to check out Refinery29's exhibit 29 Rooms for New York Fashion Week. With my hands frozen during my commute on Friday, it's hard to imagine a time when I started sweating the second I stepped outside, but that's how it was in the beginning of September.
I remember struggling with wanting to dress for the insane wait in the heat because 29 Rooms was so popular, but also dealing with being in New York City. Between subways and wind tunnels, dressing for the city can be a nightmare during the summer (or summer-like fall months?).
Just before NYFW, I got a huge Boohoo order, meaning I was super excited to wear anything from my new items. I couldn't wait for this black T-shirt dress because 1. it says unicorn, duh, and 2. T-shirt dresses are so easy and effortless. I went for a sportier look with my (still dirty, oops) Adidas sneakers and ended up adding a velvet hat (that is actually Lindsey's) as an attempt to block the sun. Spoiler alert: I was still very hot.
Back to the exhibit, 29 Rooms was so much fun and, if you're in the city for the next one, you should definitely try to go! It's free, but requires some patience as the line can get very long. As you can guess from the name, there are 29 different rooms, each set up with a different theme ranging from the bubbles room to the panda room.
To make it even better, the event, which Refinery29 called an "art and fashion funhouse," was all interactive and you know you're going to get at least one perfect Instagram shot from one of the rooms.
