UYC Style: Mint Condition


With the start of March, I can’t help but get excited about donning my favorite shade of green in preparation for St. Patty’s Day: mint!  I used the gold t-strap shoes I wore for my wedding reception as the starting point to this ensemble, because you know what they say, “nothing sweeter than a repeater!” […]

UYC Style: Winter Blues


During last year’s wedding planning, I basically lived on Pinterest for ideas and inspiration.  I decided that after the big day was over, I would make a point to integrate Pinterest into UsedYorkCity, sharing NYC scenes, styles, sounds, and scents that are currently inspiring me. First up, Winter Blues.  Appropriate much? On Pinterest?  Let’s be […]

DIY Headband: Seriously Simple

I’m a huge fan of scarves-turned-headbands.  Especially in this summer heat, there’s no easier way to turn a messy up-do or low-bun into a semi-stylish look.  (Notice I said semi.) If you don’t have extra scarves lying around, or just want to add a pop of new color into your ensemble, here’s a seriously simple […]

Oh, Snap! Gatsby Garden Party


This past weekend Mr. P and I had our engagement party.  Since our wedding reception is going to be in the style of the Roaring Twenties (my very favorite decade to play dress-up in!), we decided to carry that over to the engagement party with a Gatsby Garden Party theme.  Not only were we super […]

Oh, Snap! Riverside Park


All is right in the world.  That’s right: I’ve officially seen my first ever flash mob.  And on Riverside Park’s Pier 1, no less.  From barely-there-shorts to barefoot-in-the-park, here’s this week’s street style, snapped at Riverside Park.   {flash mob, flashing energy galore and barely-there-shorts} {a new yorker’s bff doubling as an adorable accessory} {a […]

Oh, Snap! Crosby Street

Oh, Snap!6

Out comes the sun, on go the shorts.  New Yorkers are thrilled that summer has finally decided to make a proper appearance…and even if you can’t see it on their faces, you can surely see if in their outfits. This week’s street style was snapped on Crosby Street.   {high waisted shorts} {matching mints} {distressed […]

Oh, Snap! The Highline


Trendy Tuesdays is about to get a whole lot trendier, my friends.  Walking down the Highline the other day snapping photos for the blog, I was getting annoyed at all the random people that would pop into my shots.  And then, like a glittering disco ball falling from the ceiling, it hit me that the […]

Buffalo Exchange Offers New Yorkers Clean Closets + Cash


This past Sunday I set out on a mission to kill jumpstart two resolutions with one stone: de-clutter my closets and be a master budgeter.  My day went a little something like this: Step 1: Throw everything I own out of the closets.  Seriously, I wish I would have snapped a photo of this catastrophe […]
