Run this City.

 Blouse: Madewell (similar color here & here) // Skirt: Anthroppologie // Sneaker: DIY Converse // Bag: Alexander Wang // Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs // Watch: Fossil
Re-working some old faves into my outfits lately and it feel so good to be able to find new ways
to wear certain pieces. I think, people get caught up in wanting to buy clothes so often and wanting to get whatever is “in” at the moment that they forget to learn how to re-use their old pieces.
  The beauty of fashion and having true style is knowing how to re-work pieces you already have- not only are you saving but it shows you how versatile your style can be!
On to some more exciting news… Omg, omg, omg! Very, very excited and flattered to be picked as one of the bloggers to be walking down the runway for Polyvore Live and Covergirl (FIT’s four alumni students will showcase their collections) that will be taking place during new york fashion week on Monday 2/13, so stay tuned as it will be live streamed! I’m beyond nervous to be genuinely honest… it’s completely out of my comfort zone but I know that it will be so much fun especially since it’ll be with some my fave blogger friends.

    i love this look! that skirt is gorgeous!!!


  49. Resty Comment #50

    I entered all the contests that polyvore Live and cover girl carried out but sadly I didnt win;( The contest instruction said “style a look” with the pieces given not make a gorgeous background collage because apparently, all the winners have nice background but when I look at the pieces that they styled, it’s not creative at all. A bit disappointed with that as I really think I did good styling all the outfits.But oh well. Just letting you know though.

    Anyways, I agree with you 100% on knowing how to re-work the pieces you already have in your closet.


  50. nataliya Comment #51
