After all those fashion shows (and more to come!), I was feeling pretty inspired this weekend to try out some new outfits of my own!  And just recently, I took my first trip to Forever 21 in probably a year — I was coming home through Times Square and happened to pass their new, ginormous store, and couldn’t stop myself from peeking inside!

Needless to say, I emerged with a big bag of new clothes and not too much of a dent in my wallet.  This tank top was about $15 and I’ve already worn it twice — I can already tell it’s going to be a staple for the days I want to look trendy but still casual and laid-back.  My only problem now is that it’s going to be too cold for tank tops soon!

This outfit is a bit gray, but I think that’s pretty much perfect for New York in October.  It’s a perfect match with this gorgeous Juicy Couture clutch that I was given last week, when I went to a preview of their Holiday handbag line!  Glizy and fun, I know I’m going to be carrying it nonstop to parties over the next few months.  More photos from that soon!

Forever 21 top and headband, Theory shorts, Guess pumps gifted by T.J. Maxx, Rachel Leigh cuff bracelet, J. Crew knee-socks, gifted clutch from Juicy Couture.

    I’ve been so tempted to try knee socks with pumps/skirts/shorts! I think I need to go in search of a pair or two!

    Forever 21 can be dangerous, haha. But its true, it doesn’t make a huge dent in your wallet, which is nice. I go there for cute tops and uber trendy pieces!

    I haven’t been to Forever21 in a while either but definitely got inspired to do a lap or 2 after work today. So many hidden gems!

    Thanks guys!  This is the first time I’ve tried the knee-socks thing, but it’s actually pretty cute!  And adds a little bit of comfort to those sky-high heels… :-)

    Love the filter in the shot, and what I like most, is seeing woman wear tubies with heels, shorts that say “hello”, and a fab tee that screams runway, you’ve done just that.

    What a fun look!  I cannot get enough of the sequined look right now and know I’ll be wearing it even more as the holidays approach.  Your bag is fabulous, Katy!  You rock the socks with pumps look.  I still haven’t tried that one yet, but I’m feeling inspired after seeing your pictures.

    I just bought (on sale) a grey cotton tank top with satin accents.  It’s casual glam like yours! great minds think alike. :)

    Katy you are looking so fabulous it’s ridic!  WOO HOO!  That sequined bag is beautiful and perfect with the sheen on the shoes and the sparklies on your tank.  Work those socks in heels.  WORK! 

    Love this!
