This weekend I seized my last chance to skip around town sans jacket: I wore a white wool Anne Klein pencil skirt (a thrift store find from ages ago) paired with a second-hand Kimchi Blue peplum boustier from Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn to compliment Gunas' classic vegan Melrose Tote in Mocha, a gift from the designer, which suits every season.View more: Styled By Emma

On Sunday, I hit up GenArt’s Fresh Faces fashion show to see my girl Gretchen Jones. Her collection rocked—more on her eponymous label’s spring fashion, here—and I ran into a a bunch of friends including Johanna Bjork of Goodlifer.com, pictured above.
I wore a vintage white wool vest by Liz Claiborne; black wool narrow cut trousers by Theory (via Beacon’s Closet thrift shop); Zara pumps from S/S 2011; a vintage leather bag (via a flea market); a vintage black headpiece (via Market Publique thrift shop); and gold vintage jewelry, including my grandmother’s heirloom broach that also doubles as a necklace.

This weekend, I spent a few days with family in Cape May, NJ, here’s a look at my laid-back summer style.
For a casual dinner night out I wore a bright silk vintage skirt that I’ve had for years—it also can be worn as a top. I paired it with a white tank top, a somewhat-visible black lace bra, gold ballet flats, an orange pashmina, and a Coach bag. Since it’s summer, I have little patience with makeup so I kept it pretty natural with minimal cosmetics and towel-dried hair.

The 6th annual Independent Handbag Designer Awards ceremony took place Wednesday night at the Time & Life building in New York City this week. Even though I was a judge—and viewed more than 1,000 handbag entries from around the world in the judging process—I had no idea who was going to win come awards night. Find out which independent designers across seven categories won over at InStyle.com, including my faves, the classic and timeless handbag by J.Lane and Ita Collection’s bright clutch. I was bummed Jess Ruzzuti didn’t take home the price for her innovative cork creation, which hardly looks like cork by the way.
To walk the red carpet, I wore a dress from one of my favorite designers CrOp by David Peck’s spring 2012 collection, which I coincidentally got an exclusive first look at back during fashion week last year for Discovery’s TreeHugger.com. Read it, here: Quirky Prints, Timeless Silhouettes in Crop by David Peck Spring 2012
I paired David Peck’s gorgeous white silk dress with yellow silk Prada pumps that have a gold heel; a seashell-inspired vintage clutch that I scored from Elba at the Seventh Avenue flea market in Park Slope, Brooklyn; a huge Marc Jacobs bobble ring, and colorful vintage clip-on earrings, a gift from my younger sister.

Friday, I checked out my friend Liam Alexander's Photobooth Project party at Wix Lounge in New York City before heading to another friend’s birthday party. I had fun posing for a ton of pics with my friend Charlotte.
Here’s an old-fashioned look at what I wore: a black vintage-inspired What Goes Around Comes Around dress, a hand-me-down from my cousin Monica. I paired it with a tan vintage Fendi purse, tan platform pumps, and no jewelry (except my Dennis bracelet that doesn’t come off…so it doesn’t count).

The Great GoogaMooga has come and gone and it was an experience for sure to see my dear Prospect Park transformed into a food, booze, and music fest for a weekend.
Most notable was spending time with my friends while we basked in the glorious sunshine and spent the rest of the time waiting in lines, long lines, in fact the entire event was a sea of lines. Notably missing was cell phone service, hence the delay in my uploading PastFashionFuture Instagram snaps.
My Great GoogaMooga Style: a white racer-back tank top, borrowed from a friend; a vintage Fendi purse, $25 via Elba at the Park Slope flea market; a drawstring Banana Republic skirt, $8 at Housing Works, a beige MaxMara cashmere sweater (not pictured), Chloé sunglasses, vintage gold costume jewelry earrings, $5 via a stoop sale, and Rupert Sanderson flats.

From the Design Africa panel discussion at Soho House New York—where I caught up with Ali Hewson, Nicole Mackinglay Hahn, Julie Gilhart, and Abigail Doan—to the #Makeshift2012 pop up shop at Billy Reid, it was a whirlwind night filled with mirrored elevator rides, dressing up with Tucker NY’s Gaby Basora and Alabama Chanin’s Natalie Chanin, and most notably being with women who inspire me.
I’m wearing a vintage BANU Paris dress, a pair of earrings I found at a Park Slope flea market (ask for Elba on Saturdays), and Alabama Chanin’s “Alabama Fur” coat ($8,860, Alabama Chanin) that I just had to try on.

If you follow my twitter—or Facebook—it’s not news what I wore to judge the 6th annual Independent Handbag Designer Awards; I had to utilize some major style editing skills to help narrow down more than 1,000+ handbags, from the crazy to the strange submissions, and everything in between. Plus, I got to exercise my on camera skills with a live video, shot by Dan over at Useful Media.
Sure, I got to utilize some major style editing skills to narrow down more than 1,000 handbags, but what really made the event memorable was the amazing group of style experts, editors, writers, and “social media wizards” as Emily Blumenthal  would say, who came out to jury the competition: the every lovely Amy DuFault of EcoSalon, the chicest man in the room and star of our very own "Something Old, Something New," Mr. Colin T. McDonald, a new friend lifestyle correspondent Pamela Pekerman, the talented Budget Fashionista Kathryn Finney, and Lois Sakany & Samia Grand Pierre, Micah Jesse, Dawn Del Russo, Sara Zucker, Ysolt Usigan, Amina Akhtar, Sarah Reynolds, and Georgia Bobley.
Thanks to Red Branch PR who made everything run smooth like butter and the Hyatt 48 Lex for putting us up in a chic location and last, and last but—mos def—not least, thanks to Emily for her passion and drive, and for championing independent designers and giving them a platform to launch their careers with this annual awards, her book, a and FIT workshop.
And finally, here are the deets on my outfit:
I’m wearing silk trousers by Ralph Lauren that I found at Beacon’s Closet, a second-hand shop in Park Slope, Brooklyn; a vintage green jacket from my college years that I found at Recycle North, a vintage shop in Burlington, VT; a black cashmere tank top that I borrowed from a friend, which I still need to return…; black “suede” platform pumps from Payless ($25—for realz); and “new” costume jewelry from a flea market in Brooklyn, statement earrings and a green and diamond pin, both for $10!

On Thursday, Pratt Institute hosted their Annual Student Runway Show and cocktail benefit—don’t miss my school girl-inspired style at Pratt’s runway show last year. I had to miss the show this year, but I made the after party at PH-D at Dream Downtown.A highlight was Kelsy Parkhouse’s sophisticated looks, which “had a very nice sense of balance and execution,” according to The New York Times. She won the inaugural Liz Claiborne Concept to Product Award, a prize worth $25,000.  Coincidentally, I donned a white wool Liz Claiborne suit jacket and vest that I found at a thrift store in Pennsylvania for under $20; I paired it with Diesel jeans, also thrifted, and some other pieces that may look familiar, like gold vintage earrings and a classic Coach bag.
