If there's one thing that I've learned about living out of a suitcase, it's that accessories are key in making pieces go from day to night. The same clothes that I wear to the Conde Nast buildings are the ones that I have to pick from to make a trek to the grocery store, so it was super important for me to find simple ways to dress up a plain t-shirt and jeans. I've worn the hell out of my black beaded H&M rope necklace since it's so ostentatious and bizarre (aka, the perfect statement piece). This bracelet from Alexis Bittar has the same thing going for it, but at $375, I can only dream that Forever21 is going to do some sort of knockoff soon.

PPS: huge apologies for blogging so intermittently. The city stresses me out, and when I'm not working, I feel obligated to explore the city. While all the pavement pounding I'm doing is making my legs look like some sort of miracle, it unfortunately means less blogging time.
