Blogger Closet Raid

Yesterday I attended the Blogger Closet Raid at the lovely Tribeca Grand Hotel. The event was sponsored by Lyst and organized by the awesome Jennine founder of Independent Fashion Bloggers and her blog The Coveted. There were tons of awesome bloggers selling their clothes. My favorites were Keiko Lynn, Nitro:licious and Sammy Davis Vintage.
I ended up buying a vintage dress from Sammy Davis Vintage, a dress from Keiko Lynn and a sweater dress from Jennine. Can't wait to wear my finds!




 Nitro:Licious had a million gazillion shoes...all size 6 (insert gag followed by drool here). So sad I wear a size 10. We both thought maybe if I cut off my toes I have a fighting chance...but then again I could never wear sandals again.
 Tried on this coat from Sammy Davis Vintage but didn't end up getting it.

My Buys:
Only $10 fashion STEELE!



Outfit
Crop Tee: American Apparel
Skirt: Vintage Bought at The Vintage Twin Trunk Show
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Button Down: Son of John via Loehmann's

I had an awesome time at this event and met some really cool people. After the event my friend and I strolled through Soho's lovely cobblestone streets. I even saw one of New York's Style Socialites Genevieve Jones walking her adorable pooch!
 I love my buys too. I plan to wear the lace number with these steel toe boots I just got from Marshalls. I have visions already for all these pieces. Can you believe I am already starting to think about what I should wear for fashion week! It's so far away but I just can't stop thinking about it.
So excited I only work a four day week this week thanks to July 4th!

What are your holiday plans?
