Recycled Wardrobe: How to restyle without breaking the bank

Often I find myself lusting after an outfit I see on Instagram or in a storefront on a manikin. We all get that FOMO feeling when we realize that we don’t have that exact outfit in our possession – or do we? Our minds are quickly overtaken with the idea that we need to have that outfit, or those shoes or that bag or that jacket… and we are dragged back down to reality when we look at the price tag. Accepting defeat is not part of my personality – I may lay low for a minute, but when I do come back it is always with a plan.

So ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do I have something similar?
  2. Do I know someone who has something similar?
  3. Is this item an investment piece? (SERIOUSLY!)

How to Layer Coats

It all started with an inspiration from Pinterest and my indecision to decide which look I wanted to recreate. I never thought that my indecision would create such a fun look, and something I never considered doing: layering coats. We all have those fun fashion coats which are realistically not warm enough to wear during a frigid day, especially here in New York. So why not layer your favorite coats for a fun (and interesting) look.

Chic Winter Look

Looking chic or stylish in New York City during the winter is often a hell of a task. Do you risk catching a cold to leave your coat open so the world can see your outfit? YES…. depending on the temperature and length of the walk. What I have learned is that you have days where you want to stay warm and other days where you want to look fabulous head to toe. To be quite honest, it is insanely simple to achieve.

Tis the season to be cozy! With the colder winter weather here to stay, we all know that we’d prefer to be indoors cozy and warm.

The holidays are fast approaching – which means holiday parties! We are all shopping for gifts for our loved ones so it can be hard to find a new dress that is budget friendly. You also want to feel fabulous when you are wearing it, part of being at a holiday party is being festive after all. Too often we end up sorting through our closets for something red, something green, something festive. And then we all turn into the Grinch…

Something Navy November Collection First Impression

Arielle of Something Navy has been a blogger I have been following since before I knew what blogging was. Following her journey for years, I have seen her style evolve and a dream of creating a collection come true. Her past collections have been beautiful but I was, unfortunately, unable to purchase anything I desired since it sold out SO DAMN FAST! This time around I was determined to sit by my ancient MacBook Pro and get at least 1-2 items. Mission accomplished.

Graphic Tee’s

Graphic tees have always been a part of my style since I was an angry teenager. It is what mostly defines my style since I always throw on a graphic tee to wear it with a blazer, leather jacket, sweater or to add more of a casual look to my outfit. What I always tend to stick to is graphic tees that I can always wear.

Nightmare Machine

I absolutely live for the month of October, Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays. These pop-up museums and events have been happening for some time now in New York City, have I gone to any one of them? No. Why? Because I get “Yeah we should go!” and then it never happens. Finally, I was able to convince some amazing people that it was a great idea to go to the Nightmare Machine in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. And let me tell you this, IT DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT! And of course, I dressed up for the occasion…

Fall Haul

Fall weather had been slow to approach here in NYC – so I decided to take a leap and splurge on some new items. Lately, I’ve been feeling as if my style is evolving into a new chapter. The esthetic remains the same of what I have always loved – graphic tees, jeans, converse, anything and everything athleisure. For some reason, I feel as if it has gone to a somewhat more mature level. So without any more babbles… let’s jump into what I did purchase.
