Poise In a Pinch: Stylish Outfits for less than $100 (NY Fashion Week)

Happy Friday! As you know I (Bree) am a PINP (Poise In a Pinch) diva extraondarie. My skills were put to the test this week, when a close friend told me she was extended an invitation to New York Fashion Week 2013, but was considering not going because she had nothing to wear. *screams and shakes fist at the injustice of it all*. Well, being the fashionable friend that I am, made a blood oath promise that I would find her a fabulously fashionable outfit worthy of NY Fashion Week for less than $100. She was a complete skeptic, not that I could blame her. NY Fashion Week is basically Mount Olympus for the fashion gods and her budget was in no shape to ball out. But, the art of being a PINP is not in the cost, it's in the style and eye for a deal! Check out the look we created and how PINP magic happens!
