'I had wanted to start a fashion blog for well over a year, as I was already obsessively following bloggers from Seoul to Milan to L.A. After I became a fashion writer for www.joonbug.com, I knew it was time to get down to business. New York Fashion Week for Spring 2014 was one of my first assignments. Excitement and nervousness consumed me, as I was both in awe of the street style and runway shows, and intimidated by prices I could never afford.

As a student in New York City, I knew that I had a passion and keen eye for fashion trends and personal style. However, my budget didn't match the city I lived in or the events I was covering. My blog, which was originally an outlet for my creative spirit, became a streamlined place to showcase how I attempt to look very high-end without accumulating credit card debt. What was a hobby for me is also practical knowledge for the young and the stylish who are trying to simultaneously build their wardrobe and their savings. Showcasing New York City style on a student budget is the goal of my blog, but playing dress-up in one of the most amazing cities in the world is also just a fabulous hobby.'
