Emma Grady is a multimedia journalist and freelance fashion correspondent (Discovery’s TreeHugger.com and Planet Green, her own style site Past Fashion Future, Coco Eco Magazine, and more) based in New York City. Emma’s days can get busy and she needs pretty versatile layers that can cross from relaxed to more professional, depending on what she’s up to. This outfit exemplifies those shifts: “I write during the day and often go to events at night. I’ve worn this blazer dressed up, with a black mini skirt, black tights, and heels, for fashion week and dressed down for work (as shown) with jeans,” says Emma.
Emma details her ensemble for us: “I found the vintage red ultrasuede Samuel Robert/Peter Hatsi Androu blazer at a thrift store and the sunglasses at Goodwill 5 years ago. The earrings were purchased at a stoop sale in the East Village, NYC for $5, and I got the secondhand J Brand jeans at Buffalo Exchange. The vintage Argentinian leather bag is from a thrift store, which I am borrowing from my sister while she is studying abroad.
