Cheap Chic at New York Fashion Week

Love the look of New York Fashion Week, but it’s intended for Fall 2012. Who can wait that long to wear some fab thing? The girls in the tents are so chic! Especially since they mix, the cheap + chic so perfectly. Here are a few faves:

these ladies, who have their own blog, were rocking cheap chic from head to toe, including a $2 top on the right and the structured blazer on left for $20 at a thrift shop.

I’m loving this girl’s look for days. That faux fur? $3.99 on sale at H&M

Ms. Pamela Pekerman is the one of the chicest girls I know. And as a Style Expert for TJ Maxx, I know it’s ALWAYS done to cheap chic perfection.

Last Night at the Bloglovin’ Awards

I had the great pleasure of co-hosting the 2012 Bloglovin’ Awards last night at the Edison Ballroom in NYC. Bloggers from around the globe, from Style Bubble to Sh*t Fashion Girls Say, descended on the award show, in style to fete the online fashion elite.  Olivia Palermo was named newcomer of the year, while theManRepeller’s Leandra Medine scooped the gong for blogger of the year. I wore a Shoshanna cocktail dress from her 2012 resort collection with a Stuart Weitzman heel and bathed in Stella and Dot accessories. Want my look for less?

Love, Jess xx
