Ever wonder how a fashion editor shops? It's essentially our job to shop — to find the most gorgeous things, assess the trends, and put together outfits for your viewing pleasure. That said, it's hard not to shop for ourselves when we're constantly tempted. Last week, we kicked off our budget shopping challenge — each editor gets a $500 Winter fashion budget and is able to spend it however she wants. Next up is our assistant editor, Britt Stephens. See how she spends her $500 now.
I've always wanted to be that girl who can easily commit to one "style", but I just can't do it! Too many things inspire me and catch my eye that it becomes utterly impossible for people to pin down my look (not that I want them to). Once Winter rolls around, I'm drawn to things that are cozy and comfortable, allow for easy accessorizing, and have that perfect amount of sparkle — it is party season, after all.
