NYFW Day 6 Style Diary

I’m super amped for todays festivities mainly because today I’m attending the ELLE Runway Collection by Kohl’s fashion show! I’m in a little of a sporty mood today so I kept it home grown with a Durham Bulls Tee Shirt (I was born in Durham, North Carolina). I thought it was only fitting to pay a little homage to home.

Top: Durham Bulls Tee | Skirt: Thrifted | Shoes: Proenza Schouler | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

I went with one of my favorite thrifted pleated skirts today and added a pop of eye engagement with my Proenza Schouler checkered sandals. This cool monogramed bag was a gift when I checked out the Rebecca Minkoff Preview earlier this year. If you love thrifting and are in the NYC area make sure to check out #ReadySetThrift this Saturday!

Hosted by blogger and on-air style expert, Patrice J. Williams, Ready, Set, Thrift! will be an evening of style tips, interactive games, raffle prizes, drinks, light bites and music.

The night starts with a panel discussion of style tastemakers:
-Monroe Steele: fashion writer and blogger behind Fashion Steele NYC
-Angela Denae: personal and Keaton Row stylist
-Helen Nurse: owner of TracyChambers Vintage boutique

Attendees will learn the ins and outs of thrifting, how to make the “cheap” look chic and how to find runway styles at any secondhand store.
After the panel, we’ll get into some thrift shopping fun. Shoppers will be able to score a bag full of clothing for $25. Yup, all you can stuff in a bag is yours for just $25. In the past I’ve fit 40+ items in a single bag. Also, we’ll be raffling off tons of clothes and accessories throughout the night.
Tickets must be purchased in advance. $10 ticket includes: drinks, light bites and two complimentary raffle tickets.
Clothing will be $25 per bag and additional raffle tickets can be purchased.
