Dana-Maxx top and pants

I recently built my dream closet in my apartment, but Mahna Mahna is truly a giant closet of my dream wardrobe. This showroom that just branched out from their Asian roots and opened up in the heart of SoHo invited me, as well as a couple of my favorite fashionista girlfriends, stylist Leah Snow and accessories designer/blogger Emily Kammeyer to come in and essentially play dress up. What’s more fun than that, especially when you’ve been looking but not touching gorgeous clothing all New York Fashion Week?


We each decided to pick out two looks each that were two versions of our own personal style. Being a Gemini, this was incredibly easy for me to decide because I generally dress in two styles, depending on my mood: Bohemian with an edge OR a little bit of rock n’ roll with tailored pieces. I was going for the latter here with this 3.1 Phillip Lim top, but it just felt to stiff for me. I like to be comfortable in what I’m wearing or else it shows that I’m not. Here’s what we all came up with that felt like all of our individual styles:
