Yesterday, I broke out my Valentino skirt ($1) and a flowy leopard-print top ($1) from the BX $1 Earth Day Sale. Since the skirt is velvet, I know it's more suitable for a colder season, but I just couldn't wait that long to wear it. I attempted to "spring" things up a bit by adding my white blazer ($7.49, Forever 21) and some hot pink nail polish.
Unfortunately, when I hastily 'grammed a sneak peek of my outfit I somehow came up with an $8 sum, which is totally off. (Good at thrifting, terrible at basic math = me.) It actually comes to $9.49, which, let's face it, is still amazing, especially considering the designer component. With shoes, everything came to just under $25.
It was super bright out, so I decided to take some fun pics with the red portion of Orly Genger's Red, Yellow and Blue art installation, which you can read more about here. Madison Square Park features a number of different art installations year-round, and I love that it functions as a FREE outdoor museum for modern art.
Later on, I also ran into some free food--who doesn't love that? The National Hockey League and NYC's Crumbs have apparently partnered on a promotion for the Stanley Cup, and I happened to be walking by when they were passing out FREE "Stanley Cupcakes." Now I don't know anything about hockey, but I do know my way around a free food line, and wound up with a vanilla cupcake that I ate within very close range of the actual, real-life Stanley Cup. I could definitely taste/feel the sweet, sweet victory!
