Despite all the amazing boutiques and emerging fashion designers our fair city has to offer, we still can't help but feel a tinge of envy when visiting the Big Apple...largely as a result of stepping into Oak NYC.
We've been diehard fans of the insanely hip boutique for quite some time, so needless to say we were over the moon when they launched a diffusion line of edgy basics, aptly named A.OK, with all pieces retailing under $100.
So where are we going with all this woe-is-me, we-want-Oak NYC babble? To The Seventh Heart.

The end of spring is rapidly approaching, and with it comes one of our favorite fashion 'holidays': the end-of-season sale. Since we've never been ones to shell out exorbitant amounts of money on the latest trends off the Parisian runway (okay, it might also be due to lack of funds), designer sales allow us to shop like a socialite and stock up on high quality pieces that will stay in our wardrobe indefinitely. We've been scouring the shops all week for this season's most noteworthy finds. So without further ado, here are our top five picks:
Though every season we vow to invest in quality over quantity, a tightened shopping budget and the desire for instant gratification always lead us back through the doors of H&M.
Luckily we now have another alternative: convertible clothing and accessories. While this idea isn’t new by any means, it’s become a full-on trend as of late and we only see it getting bigger as these tough economic times continue.
Less can be more--we, for one, are looking forward to finally purchasing better quality garments, getting creative with styling and freeing up some much needed closet space. Now we turn it over to you to give some of our favorite innovative pieces a try and bid adieu to fast fashion.
