PSA: Get Your Clothes Altered

An Old Way to Battle Fast Fashion

I never once got a piece of clothing altered growing up. I also wasn’t as much of a consumer then as I am now, and I just wore whatever I had and whatever was given to me as it was. As an adult, I’ve started shopping waaaaay more than I ever thought I would, and become aware of how those shopping habits are impacting the planet negatively.

I mostly buy clothes online, since we don’t have most of the big fashion stores locally (Zara, H&M, Topshop, ASOS, etc.), so I rarely get to try things on before committing. I’m also a bargain hunter, so 90% of the time the stuff I’ve bought is on sale, and non-refundable. Result? I’ve gotten my share of clothes that kind of/sort of fit, at least enough to be wearable, but are nothing like what I’d imagine. I mostly wear them out of guilt for having bought them, and am constantly disappointed at how badly they fit me since they’re SO cute. The last straw for me? This gingham number from Topshop that I bought on sale last summer:

OOTD | Pine Trees and Paisley

DDBC6BA5-EAFD-4136-B6E5-A214AF3FF6AAOK full disclosure: no ACTUAL pine trees in this post, pine trees just = winter. Paisley on the other hand is here and ready to STAY this season! Today’s outfit is ANOTHER attempt to bring dresses into my winter wardrobe, while also adding some hints of summer to brighten it up. Today’s summer hint? You guessed it! Paisley. Iconic.

Wear Your Mottos

gt12

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….

Fashion | Effortless & Classy Every Day Casual

Hi friends! I thought I would do another OOTD post since my last one was so well received. This time I wanted to show you the kind of basic outfit I would throw on if I was going to school or just out to run errands for the day. I go for a balance between casual and preppy – think 2014 Taylor Swift New York City street style (this is what I tell myself for inspiration because I’m just a loser that way). I’d also like to call this outfit ‘the Stephanie’ as I stole about half the outfit from her (my sister) closet. Thanks Steph!

YouTube | April Favourites!

Hi friends!! It’s that time of the month again. I thought I would give you a little sneak peak with a few pictures of this month’s favourites 🙂

april favs x7april favs x5april favs x1april favs x4april favs x3april favs x2april favsThis month I’ve covered my fashion favourites- in case you missed it I decided to rotate through beauty fashion and lifestyle topics for my monthly favourites videos. This just gives me a bit more layover time to find new favourites in each of these sections rather than getting repetitive or leaving out a section or month! I can honestly say that my April beauty favourites were pretty much the same as my March so if you prefer beauty favourites you can watch that one here:

My fashion favourites this month focused a lot on items that help you move seamlessly from colder weather to warm. I also added in a few of my all time favourites – things that I wear all month long no matter what time of the year. I’ve been thinking of doing an all-time favourites for fashion & beauty as well, what do you all think? Is that something you would enjoy reading or watching?
