Instagram Diaries: 2014 (Thus Far)

We may only be 2 months into the new year, but already I feel like so much has happened. I have a fantastic internship, I was able to attend NYFW shows for the first time, I was featured in the New York Times, and I've been having incredible weekends with my friends. It seems that 2014 could pan out to be a really wonderful year!

There is something so fantastically futuristic about neoprene. I feel like when we discover life on Mars they'll definitely be wearing neoprene.

Leather Confessions

I am a total fiend for leather jackets. While most people can usually be content with one, I always find a way to justify a need for multiple. This Maison Scotch leather jacket is the latest addition to my ever-expanding collection and definitely my favorite- just look at the doodles on the back! I love when I buy a piece that I know is going to be in my closet forever.

I AM [so proud!]

Recently I was lucky enough to help my incredibly talented boyfriend make a music video. Not only was the video a hit with his friends, family and peers, but also with Axwell, the sensational DJ who was previously in Swedish House Mafia (yes, the Swedish House Mafia!) Axwell decided to use Kevin's video as the official music video for the Deorro remix of "I Am" by Axwell and Sick Individuals ft. Taylr Renee. Although this music video may not be fashion related, it is such a huge and remarkable achievement for Kevin and I hope that you all take a second to check it out (plus, the superhero costumes are super cute and I cut out the FW logos...so that's pretty #fashion-y, right?!)

...I'm Back!

For most of my life I have shied away from statement coats. I've always felt that it seemed like a better use of money to buy a simplistic black coat that would last through the years; however, as much as I love a good monochromatic palette, it can get a little boring (think: the same puffy North Face that everyone and their mothers have). For that reason, this bright red coat is one of my favorites winter staples. Not only is it a great way to add a pop to any outfit, but it is also Miu Miu and only cost me $40 at Buffalo Exchange (#thriftqueen)!

The Queen of Sample Sales

I am the self-professed queen of sample sales. This week I ventured to Tibi and The News Showroom (which is jam packed full of amazing Clu and Cheap Monday pieces) and spent way too much money that I don't have. It's so much easier to justify a big spend when you're getting a great discount...

One of my favorite parts of winter is breaking out all of my leather and fur. Sorry animals of the world. Please don't hate me.
