Thrift Shopping in NYC: Your Guide to the City's Hidden Inexpensive Vintage Gems

Moving to New York meant a lot of new things: $9 fresh pasta just a few blocks away from me, the urgent feeling to hand sanitize after getting out of every single subway station, and being able to find vintage designer items at insanely low prices.

  That's right, for my last month living in the City, I've been running across town in search of the best thrift stores. Whether it's $3 vintage earrings or highly-desirable vintage Chanel pumps for just $25, I've found them, and I'm ready to share my findings with you!

How to Perfectly Distress Any Pair of Jeans Yourself

  I know, I know, I'm late. I didn't really get into the distressed jeans trend until maybe a month ago, but in my quest to find the perfect distressed jeans, I kept getting frustrated. Jeans with "knee rips" didn't actually fall on my knees and holes were either too big and looked ridiculous or small and placed in the strangest locations.

  Aside from my issue with how my jeans actually looked, I kept noticing that a decent pair of distressed jeans at really any store would be anywhere from $10-$50 more than the "clean" pair. Um $30 extra for jeans that are just going to keep ripping anyway? No, thank you.

  In true DIY blogger style, I set out to figure out how to distress a pair of jeans exactly how I wanted them, AND at a price that wouldn't make me feel guilty when the holes just kept ripping or they ended up getting trashed while I'm running around the streets of New York {because um hello? The subways are not a germaphobe's friend}.

NYFW S/S 2018 Day 2: A Childhood Shawl and Eight More Miles in my Stilettos

It's that time of year again, when all of a sudden thousands from the fashion area flock from all around the country to run around New York in more sequins and feathers than a craft store.

  That's right, New York Fashion Week is upon us and in the madness I forgot to recap my OOTD from Day 1 {although you can see it on Instagram by clicking here}. Nevertheless, day two I took a completely different direction for my look, jumping out of my comfort zone.
