6 tips for attending the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic // NYC

We kicked June (aka the greatest month of the year) off at an event that is 100% my idea of a good time! The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic took place on Liberty State Park (just outside of NYC) on June 1st and it combined my two favorite things: an excuse to get dressed up + […]

You’ll want these 10 shoes from Zara too!

I have a college professor that would hate me if she read this. One of the things she earnestly tried to drive into our heads that semester was how bad fast fashion was for the fashion industry.

A night with the queen, DVF // NYFW
