Garment District regular by day, city-styling roamer by night. Meet Krity, NYC blogger originally from Michigan inspiring women of all shapes, backgrounds, and ages through her personal style. See how she makes a statement styling some Nineteenth Amendment staples.
What spoke to you about the garments you chose to wear?
I really loved the intricate zipper details of Chanho Jang’s designs. The placement of the trims on the waist of the skirt and all over checkered design on the shirt is carefully executed. The collection is very cohesive and modern.
I loved the printed Hot!Couture cape designed by Sara Di Salvo the minute I saw it! I have always been attracted to color and interesting design. The print is so interesting that you can’t help but keep looking at it, searching to figure out what it is.
Trims…you must be a designer!
Formerly. Working in design has tremendously impacted my work as a blogger. I really appreciate a young designers outlook because it is fresh, modern, and has so much passion behind it. I also admire detailed work that is executed and crafted meticulously. I know the amount of time just one garment takes to create from inspiration to sewing the last seam. I have been there myself. Because of that, I love showcasing new talent on my blog.
What do you do now?
I am a NYC fashion and lifestyle blogger. I started blogging as a creative outlet to share inspiration, trends to try, tips on travel, and beauty tricks. I hope to inspire women of all shapes, backgrounds, and ages through my personal style. I believe in statement shoes, amazing dresses that make you feel like a million bucks, and always expressing yourself through fashion.
When did you develop a love of fashion?
I developed my love for fashion at a very young age. When I was a little girl, about 5 years old, I used to hand sew dresses for my Barbie Dolls. As I got older, I drew family portraits where we were wearing beautiful gowns. That love inspired me to study fashion in college.
How do you incorporate your own personal style with what you do?
I incorporate my personal style in my blog and try to inspire other women to try new trends.
At 9 am each day, I am…
At my day job as a design assistant at a high end evening wear company. But around 5:30 am, I start my day by updating my blog, answering emails, or roaming around the streets of New York shooting new looks.
In the evening, I am…
Either going out for happy hour or dinner with friends, checking my social media (posting and replying to followers), and ending the day with my latest tv-show addiction (currently it is the Good Girls Revolt).
Girls revolt! Sounds powerful! What is your go-to power outfit?
My power outfit consists of great dress, power pumps, a mini cross body bag, and red lips!
On Sunday, you’ll find me wearing…
A pair of jeans, most likely distressed boyfriend jeans, a white t-shirt, sneakers, and a comfy jacket.
What’s your biggest fashion faux pas, or a regrettable purchase?
My biggest fashion faux pas were gaucho pants. I tried wearing them several different ways but because of my height, it never worked.
What’s the one garment you’ll never give away?
My camel wool coat that I bought at a Goodwill for $13!
What trend do you hope never goes out of style?
I hope midi skirts never go out of style. I love the lady-like length and how you can style them in so many different ways. They also look good on every body type.
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is how I express myself. It shows the world who I am and who I want to be.
What excites you about Nineteenth Amendment?
I really like how Nineteenth Amendment has a diverse group of new emerging designers! I also like that it is an outlet for designers to actually produce pieces without having a lot of risk.
Chanho Jang’s design philosophy is creating concept driven wearable artwork, the label’s distinctive textiles are exquisite with elegance silhouette. Chanho Jang’s styling is art history with modern technique and concept. Modern baroque’ is influenced by the complex lines of Baroque architectures and William Morris’ paintings of floral shapes and colorful palette.
