I spent a night (or two) at The Roxy
bury during New York Fashion Week… see what I did there. The Roxy Hotel could not have been a better hotel for Fashion Week. The Roxy was once The Tribeca Grand and the first major hotel in the area, according to a guy I met playing the FB88. It has been home to celebrities and a dynamic mix of restaurants, shops, financial institutions and thriving independent film companies. The lobby and public areas are fabulous…but the late night jazz is NOT for anyone who wants to catch some early shut-eye…which is not necessarily me, but a good fact to know if you are planning to book a stay at the hotel.
The Roxy is located in a perfect location on a prime cobblestone corner on the border of SoHo and TriBeCa. It was a short walk to shopping and cafes (when it wasn’t snowing) and a quick uber to the shows and presentations.
Now let’s take a minute to talk about this Ruti dress. Fresh from her Spring collection, The Painted Ramona Dress is everything I needed for a crazy day running around Manhattan in the winter. This sleek collared blouse dress is exactly what I wanted to throw on halfway through the trip. The eye-catching paint print made just the statement that I needed for Fashion Week, but the simple and flattering silhouette left me comfortable for a very long day. I paired it with my go-to Stella McCartney boots and my chunky Kenzo x H&M jackets and called it a day! My boots suffered a bit of damage due to the snow and salt on the ground. Quickly forcing me to learn to always wipe off my boots when I got in to prevent the salt from destroying them!
