Thigh high boots man... they're great and all, but they have a tendency to slip a bit. I also feel like they are becoming basic because they are E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E. If university/college girls are wearing a trend, that means that that trend has fully saturated the market. Another sure fire way to tell if something has fully saturated the market... its available at Forever 21. I mean no shade, I am just stating facts. Also I love Forever 21 please sponsor me (lol).
I really love this vintage Ramones top. A friend of a friend gave it to me, she owns a boutique in Milwaukee called ReModel. I'm glad she was generous enough to send me this and a few other items. I have been trying to jump on the vintage train for so long. This tee will be the stepping stone to future vintage pieces to come and sustainable shopping habits. Just don't ask me to name a Ramones song, its not that deep.
I am pretty sure I bought three pairs of culottes in the same day. No, scratch that. I for sure bought three pairs of culottes in the same day. The fashion gods have been so kind these past few seasons. I am just in love with the non form-fitting trend going on right now. It's just liberating in more ways than one.
This outfit + shoot location combo is aesthetically pleasing to me. Something about the pink wall and burgundy culottes just goes. Or maybe what I am really raving about is the pink flower detailing matching the wall.... All I know is this outfit screams all types of YAAAAAAAS for me.
Life isn’t easy for plus-size girls, but Naomi Watanabe is pushing Japan in the right direction. You have probably never heard of Naomi Watanabe which is fair enough since she is a Japanese actress, comedian and Beyonce-impersonator. But you should really keep an eye on her because she is making waves. Just like in the US, plus-size girls are finally getting the recognition they deserve in Japan. Beauty standards only praise girls with slim bodies, but thanks to Naomi Watanabe and the pocchari trend, that is slowly changing. Naomi first gained popularity after hilariously lip-syncing "Dream Girls" and "Crazy in Love" (video below) but after that the only way was up for the comedian. Since her Beyonce stint she has graced the cover of La Farfa, Japan’s first plus-size fashion magazine, launched Punyus, her clothing line and much more. Just take a look at the slayage:
I cannot believe a whole year has flown by, as disgustingly cliché that is. In high school, I promised myself that in college I would be as fashion forward on the outside as I was on the inside. So far, I believe I am only half way there. Sure, I have pulled out the Ozzy Osbourne reminiscent circle sunglasses, but that’s just a baby step. My goal is to sport midi skirts, socks with heels and visors.
