How To Dress Designer On A Budget

Ever since I was old enough to spend my chore money on Vogue, I’ve been in love with designer fashion, and after studying and working in the industry for four years, I’ve found an even deeper appreciation for the creativity, craftsmanship, and talent that goes into high end fashion.  

These clothes will last for years and years, and they’re more ethically and sustainability made than their cheap, fast fashion counterparts.  

The one downside is, of course, the price tag. For those of us (like me!) who live on a pretty strict budget, it’s hard to justify retail prices. But I’ve been able to curate a pretty decent closet of designer items, and today I’m spilling all my secrets.

Why Bloggers Should Connect Rather Than Compete

The blogging world is enormous. I'm talking MILLIONS of creators all over the internet trying to carve out thier own piece of creativity, and find success with it. And especially in the Fashion / Lifestyle / Beauty categories of blogging, competition can be fierce for followers, partnerships, and even stretches to who has the best designer handbag, or who is taking the most Instagram-able vacations...

Being An Introverted Blogger

Being a blogger and being an introvert are two things that don't really seem to go together. So why would someone introverted want (and love) being a blogger? 

This is something I've thought a lot about lately. Personally, I'm a huge introvert, and I sometimes struggle with social anxiety. But a big part of being a blogger is attending events, networking, and connecting with other bloggers and brands.

PJ's to Work

The bitter cold that's still lingering in New York has made me want to wear nothing but giant sweaters and leggings everyday. But instead of dressing like a bum for work, I found the best dupe, wool pants that feel like pajamas, and look like a trendy trouser! For work, I usually pair them with a loafer to play on the masculine trend, but an off the shoulder sweater and silk scarf still keep it feminine.

It's the middle of the best (craziest, busiest, haven't-slept-in-three-days) week of the year! New York Fashion Week! Between keeping up with school, working extra hours, and working the Cushnie et Ochs show on Friday, I was SO happy to ditch the Sunday shows and lay low!

St. Valentine's

Valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays, possibly just because everything is pink and red, but also because it's a day to focus on the people you love! Whether that be your spouse, significant other, best friend, pet, whoever! It's a day to let them know how much you love and appreciate them!

Checkered

If there are two thing's I've been obsessed with lately, it's neck-bows and berets. So obviously this outfit has been a favorite as of late, and I loved shooting it in front of this adorable Notting Hill home! Red has always been a favorite color of mine, and if there's one thing my grandmother taught me, it's that a swipe of red lipstick always looks chic.
