30 Days is a social experiment I invented to my own delight and detriment. It's my way of slowing down the world and focusing on a single subject for an entire month no matter what life throws your way. It's also a bit of a style thing. Hope you like it.

Day 1

On my way to work when we decided to run up to my roof for a quick picture. This coat is AMAZING because it was $25 and people always ask if it’s Marc Jacobs. The skirt was $20 from a thrift store too. And yellow polka dots are just good!

Day 2

I was in action! Ha! I love white tee shirts and really dark, untreated denim. These jeans were $35 from H&M, I just cropped them a bit. I think they look much fancier and more expensive than they really are. My cardigan is from Opening Ceremony.

Day 3

At the Tracy Reese showroom… I’m wearing a “subtle” animal print blouse and marled cardigan—both by Tracy Reese, my boss and friend. My high-waisted Acne jeans are tried and true favorites. They fit me perfectly. Which is a good thing, because I wear them almost every day.

Day 4

Having a drink at Elsa in the east village and I gotta say, I really like my colors today! But that angora sweater smells like a grandmother no matter what I do. I love those tights too. They are ripping and I keep trying to save them with clear nail polish.

Day 5

Looking for some last minute fabric to fill a hole in the Frock collection. These glasses have changed my LIFE. When I’m hung over you can’t really tell because of the distractingly large (and rad) frames. I met the coolest woman in NYC buying them. Her name is Linda Director and she has some serious style. My oversized rust sweater is by Tracy Reese.

Day 6

This dress is the best…it has a pleated, stiff cotton skirt and a soft, silk bodice. The boots I’m wearing were an obsession forever. They finally were marked down enough for me to splurge. They’re Junya Watanabe and are my answer to feminine combat boots. I love a sweet dress with a tougher boot.

Day 7

This is one of those perfect days in Central Park, the kind that leather jackets were made for. Mine is by Tracy Reese. My scarf is from Madewell and will make several appearances in the next 30 days (I’m sure). Stripes make everything more fun.
