A City Girl

This season you aren't wearing denim if it ain't ripped!!After seeing a lot of Hollywood A- listers embrace this trend fervently with great gusto, its about time that you too hopped the "distressed denim" bandwagon and send across the message that you are strong enough to endure any hardship that assails you in these tough times.Dressing smart during recessionary times is less about pulling a double shift and more about getting the basics right.Invest in a few basic pieces like a plain cotton tee(shown above), a good pair of denims and juggle it with scarves, blazers or over sized chains to create a variety of looks without really making a colossal dent in your wallet.As I have always said, a little bit of wit, mixed with oodles of creativity and seasoned with a dash of playfulness can make you look a million bucks without actually spending that much.

On a lazy Sunday morning when you cannot be bothered to dress up elaborately, especially after a late night of hysterical screaming and jumping at the Lady Gaga concert, and yet have to keep a lunch appointment with a girlfriend at college who saved you from a bunch of bullies during your freshman year and who would be in NY for just one more day, throw on a simple black tee and a ripped denim, and add an element of relaxed sophistication in the form of a fringed scarf and some delicious high heels.Also don't forget that big tote bag, in case you decide to do some impulsive shopping on your way back home after a sumptuous lunch mingled with old memories...
