Simi in NYC

Hey Pretty People!
A fashion post today!
This look is inspired by my one of my top favorite fragrances "NYC by Sarah Jessica Parker. lately and
I call this look "Simi in NYC.
The jewelry is gold/black with pops of pink, & red.
You can choose whatever makeup style you prefer. But a little more dramatic eyes (FAIRYDROPS SCANDAL QUEEN) would be amazing for this look. For lips use.. MAC Dazzleglass in "Love Alert".
For nails I used the shade By O.P.I. - "California Raspberry".
Alexander McQueen Studded Cage Pump With Horn Heel shoes add the perfect completion to this look.
The fragrance/perfume choose the "NYC By SJP". So addictive!
I've been loving the Starbucks Bottled Vanilla Frappuccino Coffee Drink, so I pair it with this look!
For the hairstyle you can style it in big gorgeous curls would be beautiful.
Hope you like it!

It's episode name is "Pa Make Loa" "Touch of Death" and this is the story of the episode..
