Going Dotty

thrifted fashion

In a city as big as NYC, there's def a risk of coming down with a major case of FOMO (fear of missing out). Usually, I'm able to cure it with a quick reality check, but sometimes it can be hard to fend off, especially when it's Fashion Week. Both work and my home life have been crazy busy the last couple of days, and seeing the endless tweets and instagrams from fashion shows and events had me feeling just a tiny bit like I was missing out on a whole lotta fun.

Luckily, I happened to be free when blogger buddy Sunita V. came through with an invite to a couple shows in midtown earlier this week, so I got a chance to partake in some mini-NYFW festivities. I managed to piece together a look using a sheer, polka-dotted dress from ASOS ($28, also worn here), switching out the dress's plain white slip with a black crop top ($1, scored from a friend's closet clean-out sale) and thrifted black mini skirt ($4, Unique Thrift Store) to give it a little edge.

I added some hand-me-down black wedges, $6 street vendor sunnies and a $5 bag (also worn here and here), bringing my head-to-toe look to $44.
