A Day In The Life Of An Editorial Assistant

Whenever I tell anyone I work in fashion they immediately declare :¬†“It’s basically¬†The Devil Wears Prada, right? You¬†scrummaged around getting Starbs for¬†the Editor in Chief and count down the hours till your next almond?” Shocker: none of my experiences have been like the romanticized yet beloved fashion-centric film. Most of my days are spent answering press emails and typing away at my computer while sipping a La Croix (coconut flavored, of course). While most days are not nearly as glamorous as the movies, there are some that are. Like yesterday, when I met supermodel and America’s Next Top Model contestant Winnie Harlow at an event for Me To We¬†(an ethical brand that gives back to the community with every purchase) , which is launching at Bloomingdales. I wasn’t going to go to the event because I have been sick for the past two weeks, but I thought “Why not. It will be an experience.”¬† I rushed to get there in an Uber, and arrived at the posh Bloomingdales on 59th fashionably late. As I entered,¬†I …

The Edit: Fishnets

It’s spunky, it’s grunge, it’s the fishnet. The 90s tight is making its way back on the legs of the Hollywood It Girls and Insta baddies. Actually it’s such an inexpensive trend I had to try it! The first thing I noticed about this trend is it’s definitely not winter friendly. I mean having intentional holes in your tights defeats the purpose, right? So to make it work I decided to keep business up top and party down below. Here’s an easy guide on making this tight laid back cool. Step 1: I picked out a cropped sweatshirt ¬†because I like the look of the tights and jeans on the sitting on the waist. Step 2: I slipped on the fishnets and picked a ripped boyfriend jean to show off the tights. (I’m not even going to pretend I wasn’t freezing because I was!) Step 3: Choose a warm coat! I love love love denim jackets¬†with a shearling lining so I went with that because it reminds me of Freaks & Geeks. Step 4: I …

The Edit: Leopard Coat

If there is one item you need in your closet right now, it’s a rawr-worthy leopard coat. Now you may be thinking¬†– leopard? Isn’t that for old ladies or the cast of the Jersey Shore? Well, no. The ferocious print¬†has¬†been spotted on the likes of Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Behati Prinsloo. Talk about an Angel trifecta!   Here’s how I took this statement piece and transformed it into everyday wear. Step 1: Grab a vintage looking band tee to instantly bring some rock n’ roll edge to your coat. I choose this Brandy Melville Led Zeppelin one¬†because I thought the gray and cream tones paired well with the jacket, but¬†go for any band you fancy. Step 2: Choose a simple denim. I choose a black skinny jean to balance out the top heavy coat. Step 3: Accessorize. Since I’m going for a boho rocker look, I choose a western studded skinny belt and round sunnies. I think a floppy hat would work here too. Step 4: Slip on a black bootie to elongate your …

The Edit: Camel Coat

The three C’s of winter: camel, chai and chilly.¬† There’s nothing quite like a rich, buttery camel coat to slip on in the brisk winter months.¬†The color literally goes with anything in your closet, and makes you look like a million bucks even when you’re too broke to buy a Starbs (we’ve all been there). How did I style my camel you may ask? Easy, peasy. Step 1: Throw a printed top. I choose this leopard button down¬†(similar). It’s flowy and chic and instantly smoothes any stomach bulges. Step 2: Tuck in your blouse into a pair of kick crop flares¬†(EXACT). Mine are black because I’m a black jean hoarder and actually have an addiction. Black jeans are just so downtown cool. Step 3:¬†If you like it, throw a camel coat¬†(similar) on it! I decided to leave my coat open because of the length, but depending on your aesthetic caping it would be cool too. Step 4: Accessorize! Due to the chilly temps, I threw on my fave beanie¬†(similar)¬†and chain-adorned black leather booties¬†(EXACT). I love …
