Trying to be on my Kate Moss…Slip dress trend Revival

I always loved lingerie inspired clothes, and slip dress are no exception. I ALWAYS wanted a slip dress they are sexy and everything else in between. For the longest ZARA was selling them before they came out on trend again, but I never bought one until now. Maybe because I never got to shop at ZARA…..anyway I have two dresses. One is white lace (my favorite) the other is black ribbed material. It is also see thru so you can go from day to night in that dress, well both of my dresses you can. Today I wore my black dress with my lace top underneath, different from the typical t-shirt and slip dress outfit. This is the same dress I wore to the Beyonce concert.

Top and dress Express, shoes Old Navy, necklace New York and Company, purse Dooney and Bourke.


You can wear slip dresses with anything! Boots, jackets, kimonos, heels, leggings, fur coats, whatever you feel comfortable with wear it!

Work Week Wardrobe 

Guess who is being an adult and working two jobs? 

 
I feel real special, I am trying to work as much as I can before I go off to school. Speaking of school I visited Parsons about a week ago. They had open house and I finally seen the dorms, which I found out my dorm is 15 from campus. If I don’t lose weight when I go off then Jesus probably can’t even help me.  Ok back to my two jobs, so my full time I work in an office. Now I can wear some of my clothes I haven’t been wearing and show off my fashion. Yeah I don’t have a life like that where I go somewhere all the time, so I love having a job where I can dress up. Here are all well almost my outfits I wore this week.

Multi-Print skirt

I am registered for classes! The excitement is real, I couldn’t be happier. I had to take 17 credits which is 9 classes I am getting ready to have no life at school(haha!). I know I signed up fashion drawing, color theory, pattern making, draping, sewing, fashion history, and I forgot what else…… Anyway now I am going to start getting dorm stuff. I am also still trying to find ways to pay for the school (yikes!), which is $66,000 a year. I think it is worth it since it is the top fashion school in the U.S. And third in the world. Definitely proud to say I got into a school like that! Well my boyfriend took me shopping yesterday  to congratulate me, we were going to go out to eat but I don’t really need food. I got a beautiful white dress from Express I am going to wear to my going away party and cruise.

Isn’t this skirt neat? I lik pieces that are different it is on sale at H&M for $15. Steal right?!  I didn’t know what to wear with it at first but I just kept it a little simple.

It’s Mother’s Day!!!

Happy Mother’s Day to those great moms that put up with ur brats 24/7!!!! I know my mom put up with my ish for 24 years, she still loves me though. My mom and I didn’t do too much today but we did go to church and spend time and that is what matters most. Without my mom I would be nothing, she has pushed me in every way possible so I could be successful. It worked too with me getting into Parsons. I cried so hard in church today I am still trying to figure out how I deserved that…

So I was trying to figure out what to wear today for church. Knowing my limited options I picked out things that I could fit and were suitable for church. I had this dress hanging up in my toom because it has a mystery stain on it that I wanted to remove. Too much cleavage shows when I wear it  so I seen my striped shirt and was like “ah!”(the light bulb in my head went on). Okay put this outfi together went outside it was windy as heck….nobody is trying to see my goods (or are they?). Not having time to change I slipped leggings on and here I am.

   
 
  
Me nd mommy! 

Romanticize 

They say the libra sign is ruled by Venus, so you know we love romantic things. I am a true libra woman, I love anything pretty. We see the beauty in everything and for me that goes for clothes as well. I loved the romantic type clothes that are out and what I have seen on the runway recently(I tried to keep up with Fashion week). Ruffles, lace, soft colors, chiffon, flowers, pleats, and anything that is feminine always catches my eye. Did you see Beyonce’s Formation video? That Alessandra Rich lace ruffle dress and the multi colored Gucci dress she wore was to die for!!! Such beautiful dresses!!!

Anyway one of the besties loves to refer to my Express top to “beyonce” because of that video. 
This is top so you can see the detail

  
Isn’t it pretty?! I regret wearing what I wore with it today…too pretty for leggings and those boots. I could of wore my Betsey Johnson booties because they were a little more formal but, I also did not want to be too dressed up.

Maybe a pleated or feather skirt? I should of did a skirt but I need different colored stockings. I was so lazy to get some so that was my problem. 

I wanted to make a lace dress for the summer, go get some lace fabric from Mood in NY. I have been sewing and I get a little better each time.

 

Comfy Jumpsuit

Spring is approaching so a lot of stores are pushing out winter clothes for the spring ones. Once again I found myself at Old Navy’s clearance rack and found this jumpsuit for $11. I really like it, the fit is good, comfortable and soft. I was actually thinking about putting on a floral scarf for spring since next week the weather will be so nice. I might wait until it is actually spring but, this jumpsuit is kinda thick. It might not be good for spring so I am going to wear it out for the last days of winter.

 
Old Navy jumpsuit and flats Forever21 scarf Coach purse glasses from eBay (for $6)

    
  
For spring I wanted to change my look a little bit. I wanted to wear cornrows for once and then rock a shoulder-length lavender bob (sounds dope right) for a while. Get my nails painted lavendar then sport my violet lipstick with it, I really thought this through. I am use to my long weave and love it but I do want a break from it. 30 inch weave gets in the way of everything.
  

Over the Weekend

  Abryllya McIntyre dog-sitter extraordinaire! I have been watching my cousin’s dog Loc (don’t know why that is his name) and he is such a gentle giant. So sweet he is my buddy, we are going to have fun while he is here. So yesterday when I took pictures I was getting dressed to go to the mall with one of my besties. I got this top from H&M and the skirt for $8 at Old Navy. I recently wore the shirt when I was in NY last weekend.

This is what it looks like up close, it was $10 regular price! For night time I switched into this black hippie style dress I got on clearance for $18 at Express, it was so comfortable to wear. I went to one of my besties mom’s birthday party which is I thought the dress was perfect for the occasion. I wore it with a turban and black lace up flats.

   
 It was one of the best weekends I had in awhile, today I ran errands and we went out to eat. I was very laid back today so I basically threw something on. Hope everyone had a good weekend!
