It’s the first celebration of the year… Since the ball dropped. Today I celebrated a birthday with a wonderful girl named Lacey. She took a bunch of her favorite people out to brunch in Lower Manhattan and I was so excited to have a reason to get out of the house this weekend. It always feels good to join friends to celebrate life.
As I was perusing my favorite store (my closet), another friend of mine had to remind me that it wasn’t MY birthday; and that I should keep it simple with a t-shirt and jeans. I thought it was a good idea but I knew I was going to do it my way.
I have always had an eye for creating stories using clothing. I knew I wanted to do a graphic t-shirt and distressed jeans. Both pieces were purchased from Forever 21 last year. You can always find a “guns and roses top”, you can simply enter it into google and you should be able to find something. The boyfriend jeans are a bit harder to find… I have been hunting for a pair like this that is all but destroyed and these have quickly become my favorite pair.
I spoke about the Target boots in a previous blog post and after wearing them all autumn, I can truly say these are one of the most comfortable pair of heels I have ever had. I wear them a lot when I am styling photo shoots and I’m on my feet for long hours and I have never had to take them off.
I know what you guys are thinking… “Umm where is that dope sequin blazer from? This thrifted piece may not be one of a kind, but unfortunately I have no idea where to get another since I found it at a favorite vintage shop last year. All I can say is that the tag says Rina Z. and it was made in India.
I had a blast in the city today and I hope you enjoyed this look. In the comments below please share what you did this weekend. You can also feel free to tag me in instagram (@thee_shopaholic) I would love to see what you wore. Until next time… Happy Shopping.
