What’s in my wardrobe videos are my all! time! favs!!!! Naturally, I decided to film my own, in part because maybe one or two of you might be interested, and in part because future me will DEFINITELY want to rewatch this sometime down the line and laugh and cringe at old me and go ‘goodness me what WAS I thinking?!’ Can’t. Wait. For your curiosity – watch below!
I go through all my favourite pieces and some that are often featured right here on the blog! I’m also wearing one of my all time favourite tops IN the video. There is also a weird dance/try-on/I-don’t-even-know-what-to-call-this part. It’s fun. Well worth the watch, (but I’m a little biased).
If you have any questions about where I found something or if you want to see more: hit me up in the comments! I alllllways answer.
I was recently watching British Vogue’s fashion documentary on Youtube when Alexa Chung (who’s the host of the documentary) was asked what she thought the next big trend was – statement sleeves. The documentary was published a year ago, I’m SHOOK! Leave it to Alexa to call it big time. I need to stop talking about her so much on my blog, I’m sorry pals. Let’s talk about statement sleeves instead, no doubt you’ve noticed this trend coming on, here’s how you can pull it off!
It’s no secret that graphic ‘motto’ tees have become très populaire. Motto themed graphic tees are popping up everywhere, from high fashion runways, to Candice Pool Neistat’s new Billy! brand, to Forever 21’s horrible attempts at being #relatable (see here). Graphic motto tees have evolved from what they once were, (the cheasy, punny, embarrassing tops that I used to wear), and are now becoming more politically motivated, personally motivated, or (in the case of Forever 21), financially motivated. Regardless of what section they fit under, everyone’s making them, and pretty much everyone’s wearing them….
The end of spring brings the season of proms, weddings, and other formal events. Alongside a surge in dress sales comes a surge in stress about what is or isn’t appropriate to wear. Countless texts from friends who are stressed about buying a dress online, lest it comes in looking like one of those tragic memes on twitter (yikes). I know the stress, I live the stress. I live somewhere where it’s impossible to find a dress that fits everything on my want list without breaking the bank. On top of that, when it came to finding a dress for a recent formal, none of my go-to sites (Zara, H&M, Topshop, Tobi) had anything I was committed to. I get seriously stressed about clothes: I know it’s superficial and doesn’t matter, but the narcissist in me broke down over semi-formal dresses and prom dresses at least 10 times in my senior year.
This year, I thought, F-it. If Emma Watson can wear a classy trouser-top duo on the red carpet, why do I feel the need to wear a dress to every formal event? And I started browsing in the trouser/blouse sections instead. It. Was. Glorious.
Let me say it one more time: MONOCHROME! Monochrome – also known as all and only black and white – is a huuuuge trend in fashion for Spring. Dior (Ready to wear) and Calvin Klein (menswear) both had almost entirely monochromed runways. And now I can’t type monochrome without giggling, it’s all too much!
There are two great things about an all black and white trend – you probably already have everything you need in your closet and it’s versatile enough that you can still put your own style and spin on things. Here are three monochromed looks that I put together that I think both express different aspects of my own style, and look on trend….
