Show and Tell: The Budget Fashionista at Fashion Week

Credit: MSN

The wonderful folks at MSN took a picture of me outside of the tent during fashion week as a part of their “Trends Outside the Tents” Series. I tried to be as cute as possible, but it’s really difficult to be cute when it’s 11 degrees outside.  Plus, I don’t really consider myself a “fashion insider”…. really more of a “fashion sideliner”. I also found it funny how so many people were complimenting me on my outfit- which cost less than an Coach handbag, which goes to show you that you really don’t have to spend a fortune to get respect from the fashion powers-that-be.

    Reesy.. I wish I could have take a picture of the dress I was wearing (a black Roland Mouret Galaxy Dress knock off from Forth and Towne) but it was the COLDEST day of the year.. I think at one point during the day it hit -5

    That’s what I’m talking about Kathryn!  You look amazing.  No one would ever know that your outfit was a bargain.  You look chic.  I always get the biggest compliments when I wear my vintage pieces.  Style requires more than just a fat pocketbook.  You go!  Just like you, I love to price drop.  Where others will gladly tell you what designer they are wearing, even if you don’t ask, I prefer to tell them how cheap I got it.
