What to wear? Well, there is Cocktail Attire and then there is Cocktail Attire at The Four Seasons Restaurant, the epitome of New York glamour, designed by Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson. The lengendary landmarked establishment, is one of the most beloved and iconic spaces in the city. Inspired the invitation’s promise of spring, we dashed to Bergdorf’s to find just the right festive frocks, the floral-print Lela Rose boat-neck dress with tucked waist and Lafayette 148 New York embroidered floral dress, both so perfect for a spring fling, wedding or special event. To continue the botanicals, we chose DANNIJO Bloom earrings. Gucci’s Leather Evening Bag and the slender design of Stuart Weitzman nudist ankle-strap sandal and Christian Louboutin glitter open-toed sandal complete the look of sophistated glamour.
