If you’ve been following me on Twitter or Instagram this week, you’ll know I’ve been in New York for Fashion Week. Tuesday I was able to run into Roanoke native, now New Yorker, Lauren Lumdsen. We got to chat for a bit before heading to see ICB’s spring 2014 collection, so I snapped a quick photo for your street style enjoyment.
Who’s your style icon? “My coworker at DailyCandy, Jordan Blumberg. She’s our fashion editor and dresses like a combination of Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone’s character in Clueless), Annie Oakley, and Iris Apfel. Plus, she always lets me borrow her clothes.”
Occupation: Senior Editor, DailyCandy.com
Lives in: Brooklyn, N.Y.
Something you miss the most from Southwest Virginia: My beautiful grandma, who lives in Roanoke County.
Date: Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013
Time: 6:55 p.m.
What caught my eye: First off, Lauren is adorable, her extreme level of cuteness makes her excellent company both on duty while at Fashion Week and off duty around the city. Lauren’s black and white skirt with horizontal stripes is most flattering paired with her red button-up blouse. Lauren’s overall look is a great example of how you don’t have to be over the top and still look chic even during the world’s largest fashion showcase.
