Black Friday is pretty much the only day of the year that I don’t buy thrift clothes. Last year’s Black Friday was no different. So, as soon as I got off work, my mom and I went to the Cherry Hill mall to see what kind of deals we would be able to scrounge up. I, of course, ran to the holy grail of cheap fashion- Forever21.  I saw this green jumpsuit that reminded me of one that Kendall wore and immediately wanted to buy it! I knew as soon as I bought it that I’d have to save it for something special. Well, that something special was Philly Fashion Week.

The pants were initially too long for me, so I asked my mom to hem it (I think I told her to take off too much, TBH). I knew we were going to be inside for the majority of the night, so I was okay with just taking a light jacket with me. In this case, it was this black leather jacket, also from Forever21.  As for shoes, I decided on my nude Merona heels. Because the plunge in the jumpsuit was the focal point in my outfit, I didn’t want to add anything distracting to it.


My makeup was done by Natalie. I wanted a nude face and a bold metallic lip to pull my look together.
