The Closet of I-ELLA

Living the socialite simple life means doing your share of consignment shopping. Since I’ve been so addicted to vintage lately, I’m so glad I discovered I-ELLA, a fun consignment start-up where you can shop the closets socialites, celebrities, fashion editors, and other stylish New Yorkers.  Buying something vintage means owning a piece that tells a story.  I-ELLA does a great job revealing the story behind each item by profiling the previous owner.  I often find myself shopping by pervious own rather than by designer.  Once you find someone with similar taste, it’s a easy to buy up everything in their closet.

I love that I can now shop the closets of equally stylish people who may have a slightly larger shopping budget than I do.

Who knew going green by buying vintage could be so stylish?

Shelves and shelves of pretty things!

Lucky Shops New York VIP Party & Screening of ABC Family’s Jane By Design

Thanks to being one of Lucky Magazine‘s favorite bloggers, they invited me and a friend to the Lucky Shops New York VIP Party and an exclusive after party at the Crosby Street Hotel for a pre-screening of ABC Family‘s new show, Jane By Design, premiering in January. We also got to mingle with the stars of the show.  Since a picture is worth 1000 words, here is a photo essay of my epic night.

So many people, so many deals, so little time…

I had my eye on this cute little mini red Foley + Corinna bag.  I also found some of the most inspiring accessories at the Rebecca Minkoff booth.

Lucky Magazine always makes me feel like a star hence the director’s chair.

My friend Tracy and I met Erica Dasher, the star ABC Family’s new series Jane By Design at the after party at the Crosby Street Hotel. She’s such a doll! You should totally tune into the show on January 3rd at 9/8c. The pilot was a lot of fun to watch and featured some great fashion by costume designer, Olivia Miles.  The show tells the story of a quirky high school student with great fashion sense who gets a job at a high-end fashion house after a case of mistaken identity.  She then begins leading a double life as a high school “Plain Jane” and rising fashion executive a.k.a. the executive assistant to a crazy fashion maven.  It’s like The Devil Wears Prada meets high school.
