Rocking my new digs from my shopping excursions at Zara and Opening Ceremony, two shops I swear by, on the second day of NYFW before viewing The Project Runway finale showcase.

As usual, Zara is KILLING it with its magnificent FW 2012 collection. The denim couture pieces really stuck out for me, especially the combination of English punk rock plaid with the writer's patches. How punky prep is that?

I finished off the look with goat-skin, Repetto chukka oxfords. Yes, the ones I've been eyeing and oogling at Opening Ceremony. They're so perfect. And oh so smooth, a delight to the touch and to walk with! Walked away with their last pair, with a 5% discount, at the SoHo location. Always ask if you can get a discount on a display item --- most likely you will!

That last picture of Kate Moss. Just because.
