Sometimes I wish Fatshion February took place in April or May instead. I’ve been wearing the same three pairs of leggings all month because they’re warm, and I know that once the weather warms up a bit, I’ll be wearing a much more diverse selection of colors and patterns. It’s also been too cold to take outfit pictures outside (and too dark by the time I get home from work anyway).
I really, really, really can’t wait for spring. For so many reasons.
I’ve been really into the tunic-and-leggings look lately. Both because I like how it looks, and because it’s extremely comfortable.
Tunic: Reborn Collection via Zulily, leggings and belt: Re/Dress, shoes: L.L. Bean, cardigan: thrifted, jewelry: miscellaneous
I’ve had such mixed experiences with Zulily. I’ve gotten some gorgeous, good-quality pieces cheaply, like the dresses in these three posts. I’ve gotten some pieces that I love, but that are crappy quality, like this tunic. And then I’ve also gotten a bunch of pieces that just don’t fit–and Zulily doesn’t allow returns, so I have to either sell them or give them away. Continue reading
I was sorting through my closet this weekend, trying to pick which items to bring to a clothing swap I’m holding in a few weeks, and almost threw this dress into the swap pile. I haven’t worn it in forever because the straps don’t quite cover my bra, so it’s not appropriate for fancy occasions.
But then I saw my studded button-down shirt hanging near it, and I had an idea. And I’m really happy with how it turned out! This kind of mix-and-match outfit creation–playing with pattern and texture within a limited color palette, or vice versa–is exactly what I love about fashion.
Dress: Dress Barn via eBay, top: Marshall’s, shrug: SimplyBe, leggings: Re/Dress, snow boots: from my mom, tote bag: ASOS, necklace: a gift shop in France (I’ve also seen it available online at La Marelle, although it is currently sold out), earrings: Faces (which is closing, boo), fascinator: from my aunt, rings: old, wristbands: So Good
Inspired by the many awesome black-and-white outfits I’ve seen around the fatshion-o-sphere, I decided to try my hand at my own.
I really wish this tunic were better quality. I’m so into the asymmetric hem and the contrasting prints; I’d love for it to be a long-term wardrobe staple, but I’ve only worn it a few times and it’s already pilling and fading. Uggh, pilling is the bane of my existence. And those random fuzzy spots that show up for no discernible reason, which happened to the back of these leggings.
