Forever21 Haul

Hello lovelies! Today Forever21 is having a MAJOR sale – like 50% off the original sale price. I’d totally recommend checking it out. I found some super cute items that will work for a winter to spring transition. Distressed flare jeans, $13.16 I love the fray hem on these, and according to the reviews they are high waisted. YASSS! Cami Bodysuit in Nude and Cream, $3.96 each I love basic tanks and these are perfect for all year round – with skirts, jeans, shorts, etc. I will definitely get so much use out of these! Sheeny Stain Shirt in Olive and Dusty Pink, $4.51 each OMG – I cannot explain to you how long I have been eying these shirts. They are beyond perfect and look way more expensive than they were. Faux leather criss-cross sandals in Cream, $8.71 I have been wanting these for a while because they are perfect for spring and summer. I love these color because it screams #MinimalistGoals. Faux suede strappy sandals in Grey, $9.76 Ok I guess I’m loving the nudish …

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 …

Things To Be Grateful For

Hello loves! It’s been quite a while since I blogged, and it’s for a good reason. In June, I received a job as a fashion and beauty Editorial Assistant for major news publications. Yes, the magazines you see on newsstands at the convenience store and supermarket! Due to this endeavor, I’ve been basically living under strict deadlines, writing my life away and am in the process of moving. Despite my hectic schedule, I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to do what I love straight out of college and at such a young age. Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I figured I should name some of the things I’m grateful for this past year and in my life. My family – My mom, dad and brothers are my support system and I could not do everything I do without them. Whether it was them helping me through college or listening to me complain about sitting in traffic, they are always there. I love them. My friends– I truly love all my friends and am so happy …

Styling Sessions with Moi

Through my blog, The City & Thrift,  I will be offering virtual “style” sessions. The first 5 to 6 people who sign up for the sessions will be my testers and your individual session will be completely free! What a “session” will entail: Do you have an event to go to? A bridal party, prom, graduation, etc? Are you unsure what to wear? Are you going on vacation and are not sure what to pack? Do you want to restart your wardrobe?  I will help guide you in your journey through emails by consulting you on what to wear that fits your personal style, look, size, and event for your budget. I want you to feel the BEST you can feel and LOOK amazing. I have a deep passion for fashion and want to share my know-to with you, as well as help you explore a new look or trend you might want to try! Since this is a trial to see how to build my styling business, I will completely customize everything to your …

MY EXPERIENCE: Teen Vogue Fashion University 2013

During October 18 through the 20th, I had the amazing opportunity and privilege to attend Teen Vogue’s Fashion University. It took place in New York City, the fashion capital of the world, and tons of other like-minded fashionistas attended. DAY 1- October 18th  On my first night in the Big Apple, I went to the Express Kickoff party. There was a DJ, appetizers such as mini tacos and grilled cheese with tomato soup, as well as mock-tails. At first I was afraid because I literally knew no one going but I quickly made friends with the other girls in line with me. We entered the party, enjoyed our drinks, scoured the racks, and even met up with Andrew Bevan, Teen Vogue’s style features director. DAY 2- October 19th Today was the bulk of the whole weekend! I had six seminars including ones with Dannijo, Thakoon, Eddie Borgo, and Cocha Rocha.  I first walked into The Hudson Theater not knowing what to expect. I picked up my goodie bag filled with tons of products I couldn’t …
