What I'm Wearing: "Silk blouse from a 99¢ store (yes for 99¢!), Banana Republic skirt, Fox tights, H&M socks, Mango pumps. I like big, blingy statement necklaces but I've taken a liking to layering dainty necklaces together. The gold and pearl strand is from my mom, the miniscule ribbon pendant chain is Macy's, and the cameo locket I got from a club sale in FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology). Incidentally, this battered canvas bag is also from an FIT bazaar, which I scored for $8. My jackets aren't exactly fashionable, but it's how I survive the winter: I layer two together! Wool coat from Uniqlo and the down one is a hand-me-down (no pun intended) from an aunt."
What I'm Most Looking Forward to for Fashion Week: "Last year, I worked as a dresser for some of the shows, but this season, I'll actually get to sit in front of the runway for a couple of shows. I'm nervous and excited at the same time!"
What I'll Be Pulling Out from My Closet: My fanciest maxi dresses. I've only ever worn them to weddings, but I think they'll merit a showing at Fashion Week. Those and a pile of bling, of course."
Most Memorable Valentine's: "Against all my play-hard-to-get instincts, I followed a boy to a bar and spent the night with him. Two years, a break-up, and a move to New York later, we're still going strong."
