The chaos is soon to begin; twice each year, New York Fashion Week descends on the City. Fashion insiders (and all manner of style-obsessed creatures) come out of the woodwork to preview collections for the upcoming season. While I thoroughly enjoy NYFW, I don’t allow myself to drink too much of the Kool-Aid.
Getting the chance to stock up on zen moments around the East Village is a rare but necessary necessity for me, especially as I’m soon to dive head-first into NYFW. I was happy to mosey around some of the boutique shops in the East Village with my friend Serena – who also shot these photos for me. I recently snagged these Calvin Klein platform oxfords from OAK NYC (at 60% off too!) and paired them with one of my favorite knit sweaters from Topman and a pair of pale pink pants from Uniqlo.
