Paper Mag Party

Last night after work I went to the Tumblr/Paper Mag party, which celebrated the launch of Tumblr's new fashion week website. It was a ton of fun, and I got to hang out with my friend (and amazing fashion blogger) Jaimen and her fab sister Bethany on the rooftop of the Empire Hotel.

I wore head-to-toe Forever21 (again), which is considered a fashion faux pas by many, but it's common knowledge I don't play by the rules. Forever21 has trendy, affordable pieces in my size and it's across from where I work, so that pretty much ends that conversation. I adore the silky (actually polyester) dove cardigan, I got so many compliments on it and no one believed where it was from. I'm actually considering buying another one for backup in case this one gets worn out (or, more likely, I spill something on it). I wore it with my leather leggings and grey suede pumps. I love the color and texture combo of this ensemble; I'm definitely going to keep it in mind for future outfit inspiration.

  24. I've been contemplating this cardigan for awhile but, I wanted to wait because I saw one of the F21 models wearing the same cardigan in green and black. I'm trying to hold out for it, but, you are making me want to go and get the gray and white one. Maybe I will see you on the next shopping trip to F21 on 42nd. Im in there like every week.

  38. I ordered that cardigan from Forever21+ after I saw it on you and it just came in the mail! I love it and I wore it out last night with a woven belt to cinch it in a little. When my mom saw me in it she said "if you were still in high school the 'mean girls' would make fun of that shirt. But don't get me wrong I like the print it's really different." LOL! Not sure what she meant, but I'm in love!
