Earlier this week we received a great e-mail from a reader who didn’t know what to wear to the CFDA awards next Monday:
I’m basically in the most amazing predicament of all time–so I can hardly complain, but I do have a question to submit to your (and possibly other Fashionstas) expertise. I just found out that I’m going to be going to the CFDA Awards on June 7th as a guest of an attendee.
Like any person with a pulse, and a proclivity for fashion, I am positively exploding with glee. The models! The designers! I don’t know how I’ll maintain regular breathing. But on to the conundrum.
I have absolutely nothing to wear.
I’ve never been to an event of this fashion caliber, and I feel like I need to “dress the part.” But, I’m eighteen, and not about to drop several thousand dollars on a fully designer ensemble. Do you have any suggestions for wardrobe?
I’d be willing to wade through New York’s vintage shops if you think that would yield a good outfit, but which ones to try?
If you have any advice, I’d greatly appreciate it.
I trust the team at Fashionista more than any other, and I’m not sure who else to ask!
To help, we’ve put together a list of moderately priced, incredible dresses fit for the awards. For those who are wondering, Lauren is wearing DvF come Monday night. What better to wear to the CFDAs than its president’s designs, right?
