I held off doing a fashion post for many reasons, my internal struggle of my personal body image, I dont consider myself a fashionista by any means and I rarely dress up anymore. As someone who currently lives in jogger pants and sneakers this was one outfit I couldn’t wait to take off the hanger. The mock neck cut-out has been in fashion this year and this romper is serving up current fashion and then some! Because of the polyester material I figure the best time to wear this romper would be in the beginning of the fall season when the weather is just right. The fall vibes are in full effect with this all black outfit and I am enamoured with the bell sleeves on this romper, I feel like Morticia Addams in best way possible and paired with my fringe booties pulls the look all together. I feel comfortable, fashionable and easily styled together.
Just 22hours ago luxury fashion brand Gucci announced via Instagram that the brand will ditch the use of fur starting with their upcoming 2018 Collection. Although this is a great step in the ethical and compassionate welfare of animals I can also hope Gucci will also make the conscious decision to ban the use of leather and/or consider the use of faux leather as an alternative in their fashion line. With Gucci’s efforts to make a stance maybe other big luxury brands can follow lead in making similar if not, more superior decisions to bring forth ethical fashion .
A New Day is a brand launched this year exclusively for Target. A New Day is a women’s clothing line created with the intent of versatility to mix and match clothing items. On my recent Target shopping trip I picked up some stockings specifically for a romper thinking the two will complete the look, and while it’s just to darn cold for shorts I figured stockings can down play the actuality of me freezing my butt off for fashion.
I find it difficult to rely on the manufacturer sizeing chart in the back of most hosiery packaging because of my height and weight, so while I purchased the “S/M” and it fits snug, not unbearably tight, I could have also sized up to a “M/L”
At a glance I was a bit concerned by how sheer they are, I thought the nylon fabric would not hold up But with the $10 price tag I’m surprised by the quality, they have yet to snag especially while putting them on and adore the cute polka dot design.
Currently I’ve been purchasing some seasonal clothing but I still need to cull through my existing wardrobe for items to donate. When it comes to clothing I like to own as minimal as possible. A couple years ago if you looked through my closet it was over crowded even items unworn with tags still attached which made me come to the realization that I didn’t need half of what I owned. I was able to narrow down my wardrobe to 2 main colors 2 secondary colors and 3 accent colors which makes shopping a lot more easier.
