Last week the Thrifty Fashionista headed for the Big Apple and a broadway show, which was of course, about shoes!
As any good fashion blogger would do, I planned an outfit for the trip and my friends indulged me by helping me stage and take the photos so they wouldn’t be all selfies. Visiting such a cosmopolitan city gave me the chance to observe fashionistas in their natural habitat. It’s always good to have a change of scenery and explore somewhere different for some new ideas for my blog and Goodwill.
Being NYC in August, I needed something that was lightweight and comfortable for traversing the city streets. I did wear flats for the trip and changed into the stunning pink and orange Nine West stiletto sandals only for the photos. I didn’t want a sprained ankle as a souvenir. I paired them with a sheer, flowing blouse from Express and a burgundy tank top from Loft. I loved the bright red and pink colors in the top and how they coordinated well with the shoes. For more pop I added a purple and gold chain necklace from Target. The jeans were classic ankle-length skinny jeans from Gap. Gap has remained a solid choice for jeans for many years. They have so many varieties and I’m always happy to find them at my local Goodwill.
