    They Don’t Call It Fall for Nothing

    It’s fall in the city, and we’re excited to look cute, again. Whether you spent every weekend this summer galloping around with your fling or didn’t get to take a vacation, the fall weather will be a nice reprieve from all those sticky feelings. Hang up that beach towel and tuck into sweater weather, kids.

    The Autumn looks are here, at least for a while. Kick up your skirts, get inspired for Octoberfest get-ups, flip some clothes at your local thrift store.

    We are ready to fall, are you?

    I woke up this morning and felt really urban. I love high-end designers. Basic color is black. Sneakers are Isabel Marant, you can find them at Barney’s. The bag is Céline. I got this dress from a street vendor for about ten bucks.

My friend got these pants at a flea market but they didn’t fit him so I took them. I’ve had these shoes for years. I stole this visor from a thrift store and drew on it.”

    D: “I have on some Adidas, My shirt and pants are from H&M. These are blue Ray Bans, a Mischa hat that says ‘death’ on it and gold fangs. This necklace is just some accessory I made when I was bored, now it’s tearing apart.”
