What is the Met Gala?

The Costume Institute Gala at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar. Founded by publicist Eleanor Lambert, the benefit was first held in 1948 to encourage donations from New York's high society. In its modern incarnation, the most famous faces from the realms of fashion, film, music and art come together to raise money for the Met's Costume Institute and celebrate the grand opening of its latest exhibition. The night is centred on the theme of the new exhibition, with previous themes encompassing everything from Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, to Manus x MachinaPunk: Chaos to Couture and China: Through the Looking Glass. This year's exhibition theme is Camp: Notes On Fashion.

New Wardrobe. Who dis?

If you’ve decided you want to re-do your closet or start a capsule wardrobe, you’ll need to be smart about what you buy. You’ll want to have pieces that are versatile so you can mix and match with ease. Buy these 10 things and you’ll be off to a great start!

GOOD PAIR OF JEANS Duh.

I’m tall. So I usually have to find places that cater to tall people. Jeans that tend to fit me the best are usually from ASOS (ASOS Tall), Zara, or FashionNova.

BASIC MIDI DRESS

My favorite midi dress is a solid nude one from Zara. It’s one of those items that I can throw in my suitcase last minute because I know it’ll always be a good option and doesn’t take too much thinking. You can wear it alone, or throw a jacket over it with sneakers for a more casual look.

DENIM JACKET

Because it’s a classic staple that you can mix and match with just about everything.

NUDE / BLACK HEELS

When searching for a pair of heels that are versatile, I usually stick to nude and black. You’ll always need a pair of basic pumps for work or for play. See some of my favorite styles below!

THE BAWDYSUIT

They go great with jeans and achieve a sleeker look than a T-shirt. They also dress up nicely with pencil skirt and double as great loungewear.

BLACK PANTS OR JEANS

I loovveeee black jeans. If I had to choose though, I’d go with black pants - because black denim tends to fade quicker.

PENCIL SKIRT

Must must have, because you can dress up or down. Buy them in neutral colors and you’ll have plenty of ways you can wear it. They style is up to you - depends on if you’re a mini or midi gal. I prefer Midi.

COMFY JOGGERS

For grocery store, running errands chic.

FITTED BLAZER

This may not be something you wear all the time, but it’s a staple that everyone needs in their closet. You never know when you may need it!

BACKLESS LOAFERS

Because I love them and they’re way comfier than flats.

Leather Jacket 6 ways

Because fall is upon us! If you’re in the market for a leather jacket, here’s some ways to style it.

+ Jeans and White Tee
