After spending a weekend in Montauk with Teen Vogue's Senior Accessories Editor, Shiona Turini, we just can't get enough of this crazy-cool chick. While we aren't sure what we like more—her hilarious sense of humor or her to-die-for style (she always looks prepped for the pages of her own glossy)— we are certain that this It-Girl editor has an EIC title in her future. So, we were more than psyched to play paparazzi at Madison Square Park where we snapped a killer photo of the Bermuda-born babe in an Uptown-glam, yet funky look that we are absolutely dying to replicate. It is no secret that the W magazine alum knows how to get her co-workers turning green with envy, pairing a killer tweed Louis Vuitton jacket with some sky-high Burberry heels, for a perfect outfit that goes straight from Condé Nast corp. to a downtown dinner with friends. Plus, we're loving the classic, black DVF skirt that ties the outfit together with a playful pop. Since we don't all have a fashion closet to raid, we're letting you in on Shiona's style secrets for a price that won't have your wallet wailing. Now, that's what we call an editorial A-plus.
