We've been having one hell of a long lasting indian summer & I'm taking advantage of every opportunity to wear all of my weather-oxymoron-appropriate pieces. You know, the likes of leather shorts, turtleneck tanks, sweater crops.. the whole bit of 'em. It's kind of bullshit we only get a small window to wear leather shorts if you ask me, which, I'm assuming you are since you're reading here. Even if you didn't ask me, it's still bullshit.
Taking my love for slip-dressing into fall with this little plaid number (available in other colors too if plaid ain't yo thing) layered over sleeves. Spaghetti-strapped whatevers paired with shirts underneath give me hardcore 90's vibes that I'm always down with.
P.s. Shop my closet over on Threadflip. Shipping included in prices.
Something like, 5 years ago there was a similar kimono style dress from H&M's Garden Collection. They sold-out insanely fast & I remember being so bummed but thinking 'oh well, I'll get over it'. & I literally never have. I sometimes still look on Ebay every now & again, but the ones that do pop-up are never in my size or the price is beyond jacked up. Then came along this little number from Lulus that totally fills the void in my fucked-up, clothes obsessed head. & to be honest, I like this dress way more anyway for being navy. Fomo cured.
We all love a good matchy-matchy, lacy, luxury bra set, right? Enter: ThirdLove, luxury bras without the luxury price tag. Which would obviously be the best part if they didn't have a plethora of other sweet features, like half-cup sizes & color & trim customization. Go check 'em out & get your guilty-free shop on without breaking the bank.
Unlike the softer shade in this post, the pink tone of this dress (psstt.. now on sale!) is a little too loud to justify. But justify I did, to the neutrals of my closet, to accept this pretty little hippie babe number. Basically it came down to telling myself what I always tell myself every time something a little too femme or too bright comes along: just add leather. Et voila, Stacey approved.
I cannot stress enough my distaste for fashion rules. So white after Labor Day & year round it is. Especially with these white, denim boyfriend jeans I've been living in a lot lately. Boyfriend jeans just flatter my figure the best. With Shakira hips that don't lie, boyfriend jeans definitely make me feel most comfortable. & feeling comfortable is feeling confident & that's the only fashion rule I'm ever willing to live by.
