I’m so excited to announce something new and fun for the blog! Meet Kelly, my Editorial Assistant. Kelly moved to New York this past Fall. She’s been helping me out for the past four months and has the greatest eye… it’s dangerous as she is always finding new things that I want to buy! As a recent college graduate Kelly is on a more modest budget, so we thought it would be fun to have her do a weekly round-up of gorgeous, under $100 items. Besides helping with The Stripe, Kelly also works a 9-to-5 (she runs social for the a-m-a-z-i-n-g Pat McGrath)… but she also has her own pretty awesome blog, which you should probably check out!
Hi guys, Kelly here! As a new New Yorker (I’ve only lived here for 6 months!) and as recent college grad, I’m constantly hunting for cool things to add to my home or wardrobe that will fit within my modest budget – without compromising on style. On that note, here is Kelly’s Chic Under $100. Every Tuesday I’ll be showing you to some of my favorite affordable picks that have still got that cool factor you’d normally have to splurge on.
This week: cozy sweaters. I’m always looking for something nice to curl up in, but good sweaters can get expensive… fast. I wanted to fill my closet with fun textures, stripes, and silhouettes this season, so I pulled together a few great picks for you. I recently picked up this fringe piece from ASOS (at a killer sale price) and absolutely love it. Next in my virtual shopping cart: the classic-gone-trendy ribbed turtleneck. Enjoy!
