You know when you see something you like and it just somehow automatically archives itself into your brain without you even realizing it…only to be remembered the next time something triggers the image for you? It’s like a weird selective photographic memory, and it happened with this striped button up – I can’t tell you where I saw it (probably through my merciless Instagram creeping) but I can tell you about the look, which was simply a striped button-up, halfway buttoned, worn with a pencil skirt. It popped into my mind the second I saw the shirt hanging on the rack and I had to recreate the dressed-up-yet-slightly-disheveled vibe. Stripes are usually a big no for me for many reasons – too loud, too obnoxious, to nautical, blah blah blah. But something about thin, vertical lines works for me because its still subtle and minimal.
Also – I just joined a new platform called Fitbay and I’m dying to tell you about it (!) If you know me personally or follow me via social media, you’d know that I have a rather…errr…*healthy* backside. And hey, while I love the junk in my trunk, it does pose a problem clothes-fitting wise. Ordering pants online is pretty much a nightmare that I avoid at all costs. That’s where Fitbay comes in – it’s basically a “fit-sharing” online community that helps us online shoppers find the right size by connecting us to people of similar height, weight and proportions. And the more people join in, the better, because recommendations are based on other users who have a similar body to your own. Oh, and the tool is free forever…no strings attached. So all you big booty bishes (or basically anyone that doesn’t have a mannequin body lol), come join the community with me! My profile here.
