"See your face in my reflection, whisper more and more..."

This is my last post of NYFW! My outfit for the Christina Yi show at Studio Arte is as minimalist as it gets for me. I know she likes to use neutrals and she is always a bit edgy, so I broke out a silver-grey dress and my beloved jellies. My dress is the same one that I wore under a lace top to the jazz fest- can you tell? I love this piece because I can wear it in so many different ways. The shine makes it a more interesting basic. It's actually gifted from a neighbor from years ago, and I believe she actually bought it in her home country of China! While brands and labels are fun and cool, mysterious objects with obscure or no labels are so interesting. Along with the shoes, I wore a navy Zara bag in that new shape that I just adore. 

As I write this I no longer have pink hair! It was getting too hard to re dye every week. The first time, I paid for it to be done professionally in Chinatown (if that's even professional). I used Sparks hair dye to fix it when it washed out, which lasted even less time but I felt like I must be drying my hair out doing that so often. So back to blonde for now it is! What color do you think I should dye it next?

Style Advice: How to do the minimalist look if you're more flamboyant? Add some shine or sparkle to your pieces like I did with my dress, necklace, and shoes. And other accents like pink hair still make you look unique.
