383 / ootd: zig-a-zig-ahhh

(Hopefully everyone got and appreciated the Spice Girls reference that is the title of the post.)

I usually don’t update during the week but I really liked this outfit so I snapped a quick photo after I got home from work. Both the long sleeve printed dress and the racerback black dress over it are from ASOS (size uk18). I put my faux leather vest from Forever21 over it and wore the metallic blue skinny belt from ASOS Curve.

Sidenote: I have such shitty lighting in my apartment so that’s why it’s in black and white.

Also since we last chatted, I got a few new tattoos!

Details.
black dress, printed dress, belt – asos
vest – forever21
tights – avenue
pin – indiegoespop
wedges (not shown) – juicy couture




379 / ootd: black, red + sheer

As usual, I went out for brunch today and used the opportunity to wear my black and red vinyl bra that I scored this past summer on eBay. I layered it under the sheer mesh dress from Hips & Curves and a sheer high waist skirt from Jibri. This outfit combines my love of sheer everything and vinyl anything, which is why fall/winter is my favorite time of the year.

377 / ootd: sunday brunchin

Sundays are usually reserved for sleeping in, doing laundry and cleaning but lately I’ve been heading out to have brunch at this nice little spot a block or so from my apartment. Because it snowed a bit late last week, there’s a lot of slush left on the ground but I really couldn’t be bothered to wear weather-appropriate boots this morning. I decided to break in this two-tone faux fur jacket from ASOS Curve and pair it with a lace button-up that I got from Forever21+. The skirt is one that I’ve had forever as it was a thrift score from a few years back. Ripped sheer tights from Avenue and my black glitter wedges complete the ensemble.

375 / ootd: now with more sequins

For the past two years or so, myself along with a lot of other people have been basically begging for someone to make our dreams of plus size leather shorts a reality. A few months ago, Torrid came through with these faux leather shorts and I immediately snatched them up. I know I give Torrid a lot of shit (that they most definitely deserve) but I give props when they’re due and they hit a homerun with these. They’re pretty short which is exactly how I prefer my shorts and I’ve found they work best with oversized/boyfriend blazers and tights.

Today I paired them with a sheer cropped white button-up from Nasty Gal and the sequined blazer from ASOS Curve. I will say that this blazer is not worth the $130 price… at all. There’s no structure to it and I was going to return it but I’m lazy and never made it to the post office. I unbuttoned a few top buttons and bunched up the sleeves to make wearing a button-up and blazer seem more causal and laidback. I finally made use of this oversize red metallic clutch I got in an ASOS sale a long time ago. It’s been collecting dust in my closet so I took it for a twirl.

edit: There were a few people that asked about the clear wingback chair, you can find it here!

370 / OOTD: FLAMINGOS + PVC

In my previous vlogs, I professed my love for PVC. It’s one the main reasons why I love fall so so much. I scored this super short full skirt on eBay for about $15 and I was really excited that it’s finally cold enough to wear it. When I say it’s short, I mean no-deep-breaths short which basically means that it was made for me. I picked up this flamingo printed button-up from the ASOS main range and thought it’d make a perfect pair with the skirt. The wedges are some that I picked up from Ami Clubwear and they’re perfect.

368 / OOTD: GIVE ME THE CREEPS

(this post is copied from xtinathegreat.com so some of you may have seen it before.)

Originally I wasn’t going to post this outfit as it’s pretty similar to my previous outfit post (and the sun was setting) but at the last minute, I decided to. I’ve been wanting to add a few plaid pieces to my wardrobe and I found this wool blazer on eBay for about $8. It has metallic thread woven throughout so it’s basically perfect. The skinny velvet bowtie is one that I got at ASOS and I love that it helps to add to the menswear vibe of the overall look. As mentioned in the last outfit post, I’m loving cropped pants this season and the proportions of shorter pants paired with longer tops/jackets. This is just a simple white button up shirt that I got from Avenue paired with the extra-short Tripp skinny jeans I got from Torrid. Lastly. my creepers are 2 inches of perfection, it’s like walking on air all day long. I love love love them.
