show me something i can see.





thrifted floral print dress (such good alternatives here and here); vintage calvin klein denim jacket (similar herehere, and here); 
vintage coach bag (re-released here); ray-ban sunglasses; michael kors watch; vintage and gorjana rings; zara ankle boots.

pictures from my last full day of NYFW, monday (i'm sort of skipping ahead here, sunday's look will be up next). shot in SOHO after (another) bagel run, i of course spent the day with the suarez sisters, skirting all around manhattan to see saunder, allsaints, falguni and shane peacock, and alice & olivia. as i stood by watching natalie shoot dylana (see the outcome!), none other than carine roitfeld walked right past us. she stopped to take an indiscreet peek at what we were up to before slipping into a building. memorable fashion week moment!

i've never gotten so many compliments on a dress, or a piece of clothing for that matter, until now. it's one of those lucky finds that fits like a glove, has the most of stunning prints, and looks a hundred times more expensive than it was - it gives off major reformation vibes (btw, i seriously, seriously love reformation). i hope i continue to inspire you to check out your local thrift stores - promise you'll nearly always find what you're looking for, and it's probably the original inspiration for the things you see each season in store anyway.


thank god for re-releases, or we would have never heard this perfect demo.

new life.





h&m crop top (similar here); vintage skirt and belt (similar here); target bag; ray-ban sunglasses; michael kors watch; modern vice JETT boots.

breathing new life into a vintage skirt, one i originally overlooked on the racks due its lack of hanger appeal, but quickly decided upon when a vision appeared exactly how i have it styled here: belted, with a crop top. september is the perfect transitional month to wear a combination like this, especially during new york fashion week. i had to pack my beloved natalie + dylana JETT boots, representing modern vice with the sister design duo themselves. these are the pictures from saturday, day two! highlights included: my first NYC bagel; my favorite presentation i attended, charlotte ronson; meeting, yep, the real grumpy cat at lincoln center; and the spectacular views from the top of the standard at the bcbg after party.

babes - dylana, natalie, natalie, and kiara.


always putting me in a dreamy daze.

out on the highway.







stripe blazer c/o choies; vintage graphic t-shirt; h&m shorts and wishbone necklace; vintage coach bag; ray-ban sunglasses; michael kors watch; zara boots.

exhilarating, exciting, exhausting. sometimes it's smooth sailing and you feel like that happy passenger seat dog with your head out the window, and other times you get that stuck-in-traffic feeling (or, literally) and you want to turn around and go back home. welcome to the highway that is NYFW. i'm so grateful to have attended more shows, events, and parties this time around than in my first two fashion week experiences combined. come along with me for my craziest season yet!

messy bun + a sloppy tee tuck = casual (fashion week) friday. i was happy the slight chill in the air allowed me to throw on this new blazer. a true day-to-night girl, i wore this for the entire day's adventures, which included: 1) nasty gal shoe cult brunch. 2) tacos immediately following. 3) lincoln center for rebecca minkoff. 4) #shadesofstyle sunglasses preview at safilo (i tried on the best pair by marc by marc jacobs). 5) back to lincoln for nicole miller. 6) frantic dinner run for burgers. 7) dancing the night away at the i-D magazine party.

more posts coming soon!
