Equipment Roland Sweater + A Sneak Peak Inside My New Apartment

Equipment top via Nordstrom Rack (Spring version), Topshop skirt (similar), Chanel WOC, Pour la Victoire wedges (this year’s style)

This sweater is another example of a sensational Nordstrom Rack find. Beautiful silk panelling on the front gives way to cozy wool in the back. I love the subtle print and the versatile navy color, especially paired with nude wedges and giraffe print. I kept the accessories neutral and punched it up with a red lip.

Forever 21 Ruched Dress – Worn as Top

IMG_0353-2

Forever 21 dress worn as top, ASOS pants (alteration story here), Pour la Victoire wedges (this year’s linked), Target clutch

I ordered this Forever 21 dress thinking it would be a cheaper alternative to my beloved James Perse dress. As it turns out (with most things at Forever 21 these days) it was way to short for my comfort. Rather than sending it back, I styled it as a ruched top with my favorite wide-leg pants.

I love the look of the tighter top with the wide pant to balance the look, coupled with my newly rediscovered favorite wedges. The outfit feels slightly seductive yet fully covered.

J.Crew Fluted Skirt and Mixed Winter Prints

J.Crew T-shirt, Scarf (similar), Skirt and Boots (this year’s)

So I have a J.Crew addiction. Sue me. Also, Cesar loves this outfit. #Winner. But in all seriousness, I didn’t notice how much this skirt highlights my recent pooch as it does in these photos. In real life I feel much more comfortable wearing tops that tuck into this skirt but these pictures make me look preggo (not preggo, for reference). Regardless, I really like this outfit and appreciate the European feel it has.

Each of these pieces have been true workhorses for me since purchased. This skirt has been styled countless ways and this scarf makes the perfect pattern mix basic. J.Crew boots have also surprised me. While not the most comfortable shoes for long-time wear, they are sleek and serve the purpose for nights out and work days.

What are your thoughts on this skirt? Does anyone else own it?

Tibi A-Line Blouse Review

IMG_2800-2

Tibi A Line blouse, BDG High Rise jeans, J.Crew extended calf boots (my original review)(this year’s), Andrew Marc leather jacket (this year’s)(here in Plus), Prada sunglasses

For probably a year, I saw a version of this blouse on Ahn, always admiring the unique drape and style for the office but questioning whether a curvier gal could pull it off without looking huge. Shopbop had a 25% off sale a few weeks ago (see the other things I bought) and I spotted the infamous blouse, in silk, in black, and in my size. I pounced. Having never owned a black silk shirt and really gravitating towards unique pieces nowadays (example here), I thought it would be a great addition to my closet.

For safety the first time, I wore this blouse with all black. When I got it and tried it on I loved it, but wasn’t sure how the rest of the world would feel. I figured wearing it for the first time unbelted, with all black would help camouflage it and ease myself into really showcasing it.

As expected, the blouse is very roomy and has little shape. It has an extreme a-line shape and pleating along the bottom. It also has a high-low hemline providing tush coverage in the back. The sleeves are a full length and don’t fit too tightly around the arms and the buttons around the bust are also roomy enough and do not pull on my 32DDD chest.

IMG_2826-2

This picture perfectly shows why I adore this blouse. Look at that shape! I love the uniqueness, the gorgeous silk, the interesting shape. I envision wearing it with my Gucci waist belt in the future for some additional definition, and big chunky bangles as the weather continues to get colder.

IMG_2818-2

From the back, this blouse comes all the way down to below my tush, allowing me to wear it with leggings if I really wanted too. I don’t find the elongated cut to be unflattering in the rear.

I couldn’t love this blouse more and would be so interested to hear your thoughts.
