This, my friends, is as good as it gets for me in terms of New York fashion. In other words, it was so dang hard for me to get dressed in my regular attire when it is less than 70 degrees out that looking decent in cold weather is a challenge. That must sound terribly bratty but it’s true. I’m so used warm weather I had close to no clothes going to New York. I wanted to feel cute while I was there (who doesn’t??) and it was a challenge.
But on a less bratty-like note, it’s really hard to be confident about your dress in a place like New York.. during fashion week. Especially when you’re on a budget. Everybody strutting around looking fabulous made me consider dropping $1600 on the Proenza Schouler PS1 I’ve always wanted. That’s when I knew New York was getting to me.. who do I think I am even considering the idea of a $1600 handbag?? A months rent for a 2-bedroom 1-bath house with a carport and utilities included.. crazy!
But it all brings it down to perspective though. And that’s why the “look-a-like’s” in the description are a bit of a joke. I don’t think anyone who can drop a couple thousand dollars on a handbag would be taking the subway anyway. I’m a downtown kinda girl. A budget kinda girl. My fashion will always be underground.. and on sale. Haha.
Thus, my subway fashion moment.
PS. On this particular night we were headed to the Philip Lim after party.. that we never got in to (hey hey, we were actually on the list!!) Kind of ironic though, considering the whole concept behind this post/outfit/etc. Haha. At least we got to watch small asian girls trying to fight the bouncers. Eheheh!!
