I Wore a $2 Outfit to Fashion Week

Head to Toe: Skirt and blouse, Robert Rodriguez via Buffalo Exchange // Sweatshirt, Juicy Couture // Sandals, Shellys // Choker, The Paris Bracelet
 
My motto for fashion week: Fake it till ya make it. The people watching is my favorite part of the event, spotting successful bloggers alongside fashion students who sewed their own outfits. It runs the gamut, for sure.

But between fashion editors who pull clothing from leading designers to bloggers who are gifted an entire wardrobe, it can be tough to keep up with the Joneses. So my M.O. is to just have fun with it. I scored this Robert Rodriguez set at the Buffalo Exchange $1 sale this past April and haven't had an opportunity to wear it yet. It was a bit chilly this morning so I decided to go high-low and throw on a velour hoodie. Because if there's ever a time to experiment, it's fashion week, where the rules are made up and the points don't matter. (Any other Who's Line fans in the house?)

I made a misstep, however, with my choice in footwear. While these mules are adorable, they absolutely destroyed my feet. Seriously, RIP to the skin on my big toe. I had to make a stop in Duane Reade to get a box of Bandaids and little black socks to make it through the rest of the day, albeit difficultly. As if I needed an additional reminder that I am one of the normals—the fashion elite doesn't have this problem, of course, since they take cabs from show to show. At least they looked cute for the photos, amiright?
