design thrift

For anyone trying to figure out how to look great without breaking the bank, I highly recommend thrift stores. HIGHLY recommend. I have been getting some amaaazing scores there lately. Yesterday I got a $200 pair of Banana Republic boots, a $100 Nordstrom hoodie and another pair of pants that are normally about $100 (I can’t remember the brand right now) all for $18. EIGHT. TEEN. DOLLARS. It all is in great shape and could easily pass for brand new. I have always loved thrifting for treasures so this is nothing new for me but, sometimes you’ve just got to put in a little time and really search for the good stuff. It pays off. I’ve seen too many girls have an ego about buying second hand and honestly, honey, it doesn’t matter. No one will know but you. Bring it home, wash it, hang it up, give it a new life. I have gotten such a ridiculous amount of designer and high quality brand name items from the thrift store. Rich people know they have nice shit and that’s why they donate it. Take advantage of that shit! Happy sugaring. ✨😘

It’s True

Becky makes fun of me because I adamantly refuse to return to restaurants we’ve already eaten at (unless they’re amazing/100% no fail delicious). There are too many hidden gems in New York and not enough time for all of them. If you know me, I have constant FOMO, and fear of missing out on food is no exception. I’m a big supporter of Yelp, and Yelp told me that Le Vain is THE best dessert place in New York. So today we tried the infamous cookies, and I would 10/10 return to this place. The only downfall is the line, but I’d say we waited for maybe 15-20 minutes for some game changing humungous $4 chocolate chip and walnut goodness.

Connor: “I love experimenting with proportion and layering and I like to feel confident in what I’m wearing. I try to put some thought into how I style myself, but also let ideas just come together on their own in some ways.”

Sebastian: “My style is inspired by masculine and feminine energy. It’s is critically inspired by my personality. It is a unique butch kween aesthetic, inspired and inevitably exacerbated by contemporary avantgarde fashion design and accessible thrifted garments. It is also inspired by an incessant desire for queer representation and a keen eye for brown style/aesthetic.”
