Does this outfit look familiar? If so, that’s because I lifted it straight from this inspiration picture. Little white dress? Check. (Faux) leather jacket? Check. Pointed-toe pumps that I scored at T.J. Maxx for 5 bucks? Check.

I wore this on my first day of NYFW and it also happens to be the outfit I got snapped in for Essence Magazine’s NYFW Street Style round-up! When I found the picture online, I showed my sister, who told my brother, who told my parents, which lead each of them to call me separately about it. My dad said he didn’t know that I was “internationally famous” (As if! But that’s cute dad, thanks.) and my mom asked me to get as many copies of the magazine as I could (It’s only online mom, but you can send the link to anyone you want!). Sometimes my family really makes me laugh!
