I'm an NYC Transplant Going Through a Style Evolution—Here's What I'm Buying RN

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

If you're new here, my name is Aniyah Morinia, and it only took about four months for me to make moving to NYC my only personality trait. What can I say? I went from small-town girl in Kissimmee, Florida, to big-city girl in Brooklyn, and I just can't shut up about it. But some days, I don't even have to bring it up because it's so apparent in my new styling choices. I am now wearing padded shoulders, chunky boots, and all-black looks on a regular basis, which are the opposite of my everyday looks back home. (NYC tends to have that effect on people.) I've also been experimenting with my beauty and haircare routines. The products that I used to buy over and over are now being replaced with new products, and since I've been shopping so much, I thought it only made sense for me to share my finds with you. Ready for a glimpse at the products that are currently shaping my NYC style? Just keep scrolling.

Believe the hype. I've been wearing these nonstop since I bought them two weeks ago. 

If my blazer isn't oversized, I don't want it. 

Cozy vibes only. 

In New York, it's impossible to go outside and not see a pair of Dr. Martens (and for good reason).

This mascara has thousands of glowing reviews. I'm sold. 

If you see me roaming around the city in this top, just know that it won't be the first or last time. 

This bag houses all the essentials and adds a pop of color to my monochromatic 'fits.

Cut-out details have taken over my wardrobe, and I couldn't be more proud. 

I traded my sandals for sneakers, and I regret nothing. A chic yet comfortable sneaker is the ultimate must-have. 

Not to be dramatic, but my life changed for the better when I discovered this brown lip liner. 

I'm convinced that the sweater-vest trend held on for another season just so I could experience real fall layering.

The chunkier, the better. 

Pair these with the chunky loafers above, and you've achieved the retro preppy aesthetic. 

Functionality now ranks high on my list when shopping (after style, of course). 

I wasn't a beanie person until about five minutes ago when I stumbled across this one. The evolution is happening as we speak. 

I used to stay away from prints, and now I can't imagine my closet without them. 

I am fully prepared to wear these all season long. 

It's never too early (or late) for anti-aging products. This serum is ranked #1 in the U.S.

Soon it will finally be cold enough for me to wear faux fur, and I'm choosing this for my debut.

I'm letting my bags do the talking from now on. 

This coat requires minimal styling. It has my name written all over it. 

Trust me. Your hair will thank you. 

Sleek and functional. Meet my back-to-office bag. 

I will do anything to make getting ready less hectic, and this cuts drying time by 50%.

I feel most like a city girl when I'm rocking a pair of cat-eye sunnies. 

I plan to style this top just like the model—with light-wash denim, square-toe boots, and gold accessories. 

For maximum hydration. 

A staple for the city. 

Combatting dry winters one hair mask at a time.

I was afraid of clogs until I saw so many stylish people wearing them around the city. I'm inspired.

Meet Grace Bonney: The Mastermind Behind Design*Sponge & Therapist In-Training

Welcome toSecond Life, a podcast spotlighting successful women who've made major career changes—and fearlessly mastered the pivot. Hosted by Hillary Kerr, co-founder and chief content officer at Who What Wear, each episode gives you a direct line to women who are game changers in their fields. Subscribe to Second Life on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or anywhere you get your podcasts to stay tuned.

Grace Bonney is a quadruple threat: She is a digital pioneer, best-selling author, design expert, and founder of —a platform and digital community dedicated to creatives. Bonney started Design*Sponge back in 2004 as a website that aimed to demystify the design world, making it accessible to all. She also expanded the concept into a best-selling book, Design*Sponge at Home, and a fiercely loyal community around the world. Bonney's unique perspective and passion for equity, inclusivity, and the importance of supporting all members in the creative community catapulted the company to reach 2 million readers per day for 15 years. After shuttering the site in 2019, Design*Sponge was archived into the Library of Congress—the nation's oldest federal cultural institution and a major accomplishment for the brand. 

Booney is also the founder of Good Company, a print magazine and podcast about creative entrepreneurs, and After the Jump, a podcast about creatives that has reached over 500,000 listeners per episode. Booney also made The New York Times' best-seller list after publishing her second book, In the Company of Women, which is a loving ode to female entrepreneurs.

Most recently, however, she's been working on her latest book, , which will be released tomorrow, October 26, and features unfiltered, eye-opening conversations with more than 100 women from every corner of the country and every walk of life. 

Collective Wisdom: Lessons, Inspiration, and Advice From Women Over 50

As if this wasn't inspiring enough, through all of the women Bonney has profiled for the project, she became so moved that she decided to make a major career pivot of her own and enroll in graduate school to pursue a career as a therapist. "How do you create a space where somebody else can feel heard and seen and ultimately a little bit less alone? I tried to do that in my podcast interviews. I tried to do that when I interviewed people for books. And now, I'm just going to do that in a different setting," Bonney tells Hillary of the journey ahead.

Listen to the latest episode of Second Life to hear how Bonney's previous careers and true collected wisdom have led her to her next chapter as a family and marriage therapist, plus all the lessons she's learned along the way.
