So if you haven’t heard already, FARFETCH is having a ridiculous sale. Over 3000 items are up to 70% off, AND they’re throwing in an additional 20% off with the code x20ff. Yea, I know. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, there are actually some amazing finds! I didn’t comb through all 3000 items but I definitely made my way through a lot of them and found some cute things for myself.
Everybody needs a good pair of jeans, these classic Brocken Bow skinny jeans above are on sale for $88. If you want to try something different…maybe you’re going to fashion week in one of the cities next month, try these purple Alberta Ferretti trousers with just a cool t-shirt or sweater.
Found a few cute sweatshirts/sweaters. They’re ideal for cozy warmth on a cold winter day. Loving the lace detail on the Adidas by Stella McCartney sweatshirt. Fabulous.
Some of these dresses can work this winter with some tights and even an undershirt. But some of them will be absolutely perfect for the spring!
Okay so up north it definitely gets old wearing the same coat everyday. Especially that good old black or grey that everybody wears. Hey I love black and grey but there is no better way to spice up a cold winter day than with a bright-colored coat. Delpozo has a beautiful yellow and beige cape coat 40% off. Hurry though because there is only one left.
There’s plenty of skirts on sale but I have to say this black and white Balmain mini skirt will definitely get worn. You can go to lunch with that…even to work if you do it right.
So mind you this Bao Bao Issey Miyake bag is on sale and I hardly ever see any of their merchandise on sale. And kid you not, Ashish, Proenza Schouler and Rebecca Minkoff. High to low… yess!
There’s a lot of boots on sale. Now might be the time to try that sexy high-knee boot or even these Versace velvet boots.
If you’re looking for more picks, feel free to visit the fashion shop. Have fun and please do share your finds in the comments below!

This week I attended one of the MTV VMA Song of Summer Celebration Concerts with Jason Derulo and Timeflies at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Summer casual was the name of the game as the summer heat made its way ‘back’ to the city. I did my favorite Bebe African Print jumper and Christian Louboutin metallic heels and it was great because it was really hot out!
I met stylists and photographers Rachel and Nicole. Rachel was wearing this great Topshop Motel Skirt I’ve seen everywhere. Anyway, MTV has been doing these concerts all through the week with celebrities like Ciara and Robin Thicke. Are you excited for the VMAs?
So I am so excited that this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s Exhibition entitled Punk: Chaos to Couture is all about punk and funky street style. I’ve blogged about funky street style almost all year; New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013, Versace’s Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013, and even created an amazing set of mix and match items for your every day (or night) funky street style. The punk and grunge look is what is now and if it’s not your style, you should try a piece or two and see what it feels like! If anything you can try a nice biker leather jacket or vest like the one I wore here.
I can’t wait to see what everyone wears at the Met Gala this coming May 6, ModaOperandi will be live streaming the red carpet at 7 PM. They are also giving our readers the opportunity to pre-order looks straight off the red carpet from Anthony Vacarello, Balmain, Delpozo, Rodarte, Nina Ricci and Wes Gordon on May 7. I will be live tweeting and running around the city as usual. Get excited and check out Exclusive Punk Collection, I’m kind of loving these mohawk headpieces and Hermes‘ attempt at the graffiti trend with their new Kelly bag. They even etched “New York City” on there for us locals and NYC lovers.
Donatella Versace gave us her version of funky street style with a punk mix of leather, fur and bright yellow in Milan. I’m loving it!
