I assume by your question, you're asking not only what we're wearing, but also the brand...?

Today is "casual Friday"...

AG jeans, Addidas sneakers, Cole Haan belt, Victoria's Secret bra & panty, Kenneth Cole wrist watch, Gap socks, and a no-brand Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fitted t-shirt...

Yes, I was interested in the brands as well... um about the under graments... I have those on... but didn't think to list... you are very detailed oriented. 

FYI, calvin klein bras are just as comfy as VS, but cheaper at TJ MAxx...

We could too, but I am so scared that if I dress too feminine to work, I won't be taken seriously (I am an Engineer - Currently working as an Electrical  Engineering Project Manager), so I saved all my dresses for the weekend or church... lolz!

I've got to get my a set then. I'm always at VS and walk out spending at least close to a 500+ with not a lot to show for. I'm faithful though, but if you say so then I'm gonna give it a try. I'm excited!

Anyhow... I'm at work in a pair of black Guess slacks, a white Guess shirt, and my pointy boots from Baker's.

Instead of describing what you're all wearing, can you also post a picture?  I'm a visual person.
I can't picture how each article of clothing looks like nor the accessories that go with the outfit. ;D ;D

I'm at school so nothing too fancy. am in a pair of forever21  jeans, white charlotte russe lace cami, and a dark green cardigan since it was chilly out this morning and my old navy flip flops, sterling silver studs and necklace from kohls. ;D

That what I was looking to buy last night at Target but short sleeve since I had some while pregnant and it just so comfortable that I want more in different color.  I was able to add a blue one to the rest of my other colors at home.  I'm so petite that a lot of maternity clothes never fit me so those tees was the best thing whether the short or long sleeve.

Those maternity tees from Target are my favorite! When I was pregnant, that’s all I wore even to work…every day. In fact, those were the only maternity tops I bought all  throughout pregnancy. I still wear them just because they are so comforty!

I’m a visual person too. So yes, if possible please snap a picture of your outfits for inspiration for us all.

It’s casual Friday in the office so wearing –

Gap straight leg jeans
Jcrew pinstripe cotton button down
Target Mossimo gray sweater
Thin brown belt (forever21)
Ralph Lauren flats in chocolate brown
Green jeweled bracelet
Burberry watch


I agree with you about those maternity tees from Target.  Still keeping and adding more colors to the collection.  I like Old Navy maternity tees too but they don't have it at the store and mostly have to be order online so forget it even though I did have 2 of them.

Here’s a camera phone pix.

(http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo234/burberry78/april06.jpg)

Urgh, I still look pregnant!

Shirt (Forever21)
Black cardigan (Jcrew)
Black slacks (The Limited) – not wearing these pants again, they are not very flattering on me....
Black pumps (Madden Girl by Steve Madden)

Hmmm...this is very helpful, maybe I need to snap a photo before I leave the house every morning to make sure I look ok!  :D

From that photo your tummy still look like you're pregnant.  I'm glad I'm the type that don't gain weight or get big during pregnancy that after labor I'm just go back to my old size right away without even working out because my tummy will just go flat after the baby is out.  I always consider myself lucky to have easy labor/birth and going back to my old body right away.

How's your baby doing?  My baby will be 5 weeks old tomorrow which is also suppose to be his due date.......... Still have to deal with every 2-3 hours of feeding, changing, etc.  Without my kids here because of spring break this week  it has given me a little break and less stress........ .
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: SummerBerry on April 06, 2010, 01:06:29 PM
i dont think ss looks pregos at all in that pic.
she looks great for someone who just had a baby
post-prego, most can't even fit into their pre-prego clothes, and some never can again! 


She's not on the big side but you can tell she has a little tummy but working out will get her back to her size but she's still in good shape.  I don't work so I never bother with buying clothes too much so whatever I have around is just what I wear and everything still fit fine.
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: Moo.Moo.Yee on April 06, 2010, 01:26:09 PM
I think it's the shape of SS's shirt. it looks to be billowy...I wouldn't call SS fat even if she was 9 mos preggo! I've probably got 50 lbs on her and I'm the one ppl should be calling preggo  ;D

SB, my little girl is doing great! Thanks for asking. I'll have to share some recent photos of her. She's just such a joy. I'm back at work now, just started last week - I had 11 weeks off. She's 3 months now and sleeping thru the night. She sleeps like 8+ hours a nite, it's amazing! LOL... We feel so lucky that we have sleep too!  ;D

You have to share a photo of your baby! I haven't seen!


LOL... no I agree with SB though, I looked at that photo this morning and the first thing I thought was "dang! I still look pregnant!"  ;D ;D ;D  It is the shirt, like Moo said, it's kinda billowy in the front. And I don't like these slacks on me either! LOL... I try again tomorrow. I feel frumpy in this outfit... won't wear again.  :D


It was your shirt that gave that little appearance that make it look like you can be 2-4 months pregnant.  Hehe.......... .

My son is doing good but just that he's not sleeping through the night straight yet.  I'm still getting up every 2-3 hours for feeding and changing diaper.  After feeding it he fall right back to sleep then good otherwise it will be 1-2 hour of wide eye awakening that I have to play with him or just let him chill out and I watch tv until I feel like he will go back to sleep then it another bottle.  Its no wonder we sleep in the guest room for the moment so my son can sleep with husband and he can look after him while my daughter who just turn 2 over the weekend is still staying with my mom on and off in LA. 

I have plenty of pictures but I don't really know how to post in here and have tried a few time but seem not to work so it all in Myspace....... ...

me too.  I never dress up anymore since I started working here.  I wear jeans everyday with a different top, follow by a sweater or something to keep warm.  oh and sneakers, flip flops during the hot summer months.  once in a while, I'll wear a skirt with sandals or a heel, but that's seldom.

maybe I'll make it my own rule NOT to wear jeans......... .............. BUt I've gotten lazy now.  Jeans are so easy to pair. :D
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: SummerBerry on April 07, 2010, 05:18:22 PM
I LOVE scarves! OMG, I have like a 100 of them! LOL...

Anyone can pull it off... just try it sometimes SB, even if you're just at home.  :)

I don't work so I don't really bother with shopping for clothes.  Clothes in my closet such as sweater, jacket and blouse just sit there pretty for years without even touching it much.  My drawers pants and jeans are just fold neatly there and only very few time would I take it out to wear but I do stock up on jean only because I'm petite so if I come across a nice pair at Ross, TJMaxx, or Marshalls in petite size then it a must to grab otherwise its hard to find jean especially when you have no curve and just slim.  My daughter is starting to come around and grab a sweater or jacket to wear sometime but always asked for permission first. The only thing I don't own is a single skirt, dress, slack/dress pant or flowery/print top, etc.  I clean it all out after a few year of marriage because church is not my thing anymore.  If i was to do yard sale it will still be a good steal since it might still have a tag or just hardly worn.......

Scarf is never my thing.......my daughter use to stock on them after winter season along with a few that my sister gave her but I can never pull it off or bother with it.

HELL YEAH she looks great all the time!  Even when she was 8 months pregnant she was looking sharp.  Baby about to pop out but her hair was all done up and she had matching bracelets and earrings along with her shoes.  And not even any with bland colors she wears like lime green, red, teal...you name it she's got it.

i LIVE in VS Pink Sweats all winter. lol. Its nice cause i dont have any place to be but on campus most days & my workplace is a jeans & t shirt kind of place, so i'm comfy all of the time.  sometimes i miss dressing up though! since the weather has been a little nicer I have been breaking out my dresses & being more girly (see pg 2 of this thread) but we got snow today in wis so its back to the sweatpants i go!  ;)

SY,

Usually the only time I am wearing sweats is to work out or go to sleep at other people's house.  Once in a while, I will travel in them... but more often than not, I am nicely dressed up with make up on...
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: LadyLionness on April 14, 2010, 02:42:20 PM
ll,
i'm too lazy to get all dolled up on weekends. so much so that i dread weekends when i know i have an event to attend with the hub cause that means, i'll have to look decent...

Hahahaha... one reason I choose to marry my husband was b/c he likes me in make up... I dated someone who said he liked me with no make up on... I was thinking that if I married him, he may not let me wear make up as much or would not let me take the time to put on make up... lolz!  And my husband likes it when I am dressed nice... even though HE doesn't... he said his worse fear was that his wife would start dressing like an old lady... whenever he complains that I take too long, I threatened that I would go with him to places dressed like an old lady...

With dresses, it's easy to look pulled together... I hardly do anything with my hair anymore, just wash and go, unless social function.  Having a great hair cut helps.

Post by: go-go on April 19, 2010, 01:31:11 PM
I thought it would be too busy at the top, but, that wasn't the case at all.  The patterns somehow played together nicely, and you get a little pink peeking out from the cardigan, and with the black bottom, all the attention goes to the colors at the top.  I really wanted a spring look, and this was just perfect.   I felt dressed up, but not too overly done for such a casual place....

I've stopped buying in dark colors too, but when I see a nice top, I'll get it.... luckily, I have a Little Mother who is always telling me that my clothes aren't "colorful" enough (for her!), so I have plenty of colors in my wardrobe.

You gals are sooo stylish.  I tend to wear the same clothes for days.  I know.  Not good.

Today I decided to wear a black turtle neck with jeans in honor of Steve Jobs Day.  I've had the turtleneck for maybe 20 years now.  The jeans are Levi's...maybe a year old.

Ignore the dumb face and awkward pose. I did it like that so you can see the boots. And I don't accessorize because I find it tedious. That's just my everyday purse/bag. Lol.

Just curious, what do you wear under them booties? socks? or nothing..? I have one.. just don't really know how to wear it.   Great outfit by the way.

Stores sell no-show or low ankle socks that you can buy and wear with your ankle boots.  You could wear them without socks and I do from time to time, but if you wear them that way too often, they get stinky.

Lolz... I am sort of particular about my clothes... and I am afraid to order online unless I know and trust the brand... and if that's the case, then I list the brand... lolz!

I got bored of dressing business/ business causal too, so that's when I begun my journey into finding casual clothes that are fun and interesting, but would still be work appropriate.  It was hard at first, because I own exactly 2 pair of jeans and one t-shirt... and didn't know how to put together an outfit that included denim... I dated a guy once and his dad asked him... does your girlfriend ever wear jeans?  lolz...

From reading all your excerpts, I guess I dress boring everyday!!  I only try to dress up (or put in more efforts is more like it) in the summer time.  In the fall and winter, it's basically jeans and something warm with a pair of boots.  Dressing up takes too much efforts and I've gotten lazy now.

Jeans from NYC
long sleeve purple tshirt from Kohls
Nike running jacket (it was by the door!)
Ascis running shoes
Yes --I have a skirt like the one you're wearing and I only paid 5.99 at Ross.
Anemome, I love your blouse and I love that color....I was really into the yellow/butter color this summer.

Go-go...

Once you have the pieces... and an idea of what you like... (via magazines)... it takes no more effort than throwing on a T-Shirt and Jeans...

Also... if you have a few nice blazers, leather jackets, and jean jackets... you can just throw it on top of what you have on today and still look sophisticated. .. if you so wish... lolz!

Yes, I can wear Jeans and Cargos to work... most of the people here wear jeans and t-shirts with gym shoes... a few had tried wearing flip-flops... but that didn't go too well.  Even the owner and vice-presidents wear jeans... except they were nicer shirts and will often sport a blazer.

How does the rest of your co-worker dress?  Are they in 3-piece suits, etc?

Most of them are pretty business casual like me. And then the others are in skirts and blazers. And the bosses are always in a 3 piece suit. So I'm pretty okay, but should I slack more than this, then I become the odd one out. I NEVER wear skirts. I think I'm the only girl who works here who has NEVER worn a skirt...haha!

speaking of work attire, i feel like i'm always the dressed up one here. our code is business casual with jeans on Fridays. I usually wear dress slacks, a printed top and a cardigan over it with some sort of matching accessory and nice shoes. I never wear tennies here, even on casual friday. On jeans day, I wear dark colored jeans or trouser style jeans with a nice top. Just like any regular work day look but with jeans. Some people just show up in a sweatshirt, khakis and tennies everyday. That's not biz casual in my book. lol. Our higher ups are always in a suit and tie (males) or pant/skirt suit (females). I would hate to walk around looking like a bum in front of these people, you know?!

I agree! I used to wish I worked in a posh environment where I got to dress up all the time. Well, I'm in an environment like that right now! Everyone here is so styling and trendy...omg, I should take photos of the way the women here dress. It looks like the pages of Jcrew or Banana Republic ads. My sister came to my work place once and said, "Wow, everyone here looks like a freakin model!".

There are some non-model/normal people here too... ahahaa (like me).  ;D But I guess if I ever was to "dress down" which I think is the way I pretty much look every day, I would feel like an outcast just because everyone is so dressed up.  :-\
For me, I think the really big factor as to why I don't want to dress up anymore is that there's only 3 of us ladies here and I'm the youngest.  LOL!! The other two are over 50 for one and 66 for the other one.  So, for me, there's no competition to dress fashionably.  When I do put in effort and look fashionable, then I feel as if I'm way too over the top.  I used to work in a business attire only environment, but I'm really glad to have the option to dress up or dress down now.

I usually dress to make me happy... and I don't feel over the top... b/c part of it is attitude... and I don't dress overly sexy or girly b/c it's mostly men...

No leather jackets and colored blazers would be too much. The unfortunate thing about my work place is, it's is not stylish, just very conservative and businesy. If I wore colors or leather for that matter, I'm pretty sure I'd get odd stairs. It's not really an environment that is trendy persay, it's more of a very conservative, business attire kind of place. Tons of older people. That's why I don't dress TOO trendy, but I can't dress down either.

I have trench coats, but do you wear it all day? I guess, in an office, I'm not wearing a coat of any sort. I'm a huge cardigan fan though.

Today, (YAY FOR FRIDAYS, Business Casual). Blue skinny jeans, black fats, white tank, blue cardigan (this I remember, Nordstrom Rack), black/white tribal scarf.

Yes, I wear my trench coat all day... unless I get too hot...

I like cardigans too, and have few, but I don't wear them as often as I wear jackets and blazers... My cardigans are from Ann Taylor and really thin, so they are great over dresses... or layering under blazers and jackets...
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: LadyLionness on October 28, 2011, 10:30:48 AM
If you want to wear your trench coat all day, it should be one that is fitted in the back, so that it looks more like a blazer and not loose like a rain coat... that's just my opinion... lolz!

Since I’ve been posting my daily outfits, I realized how much black I actually wear! Another black day, I guess.

Cream ruffle blouse, Gap
Black trousers, Limited
Black blazer, Gap
Black heels, Tahari
Orange/gold bracelet, F21

The angle I take the pictures from is not the best or most flattering… But I guess at least it gives some visual vs just writing what I wear. LOL

Oh I can never pull that look off, plus I got fat calves so I hardly wear boots. I really like the boots though!

I love Marshalls for shoes as well. I usually find a good selection at the one in Maplewood (near Maplewood Mall).

Really? Thanks for letting me know. I actually haven't been to that one. Will be sure to go there. Need some new boots for upcoming weather.

Cali_lady - I like that scarf against the colored shirt! I'm a sucker for scarves! I wish I can pull off the leather/pleather look... but it just looks funny on me, so I don't even bother.  :-\

Thanks, I’m very shy when it comes to being center of attention…so I normally don’t wear much color at all…I was afraid my shirt would stand out w/ the rest of my tone down colors I’m wearing today…thus why I have the scarf to cover it …but I guess it looked ok after looking at it…  :P

And thanks to wowsers for posting up that 25 ways of how to wear a scarf…I found a favorite youtube channel  :D…I looooove Wendy and her style …my frame is similar to hers, but I’m prob. a fatter version …lol

I love scarves... and have been intentionally collecting them.  You really make an outfit...

You are welcome about the eyebrow pencil  I was afraid you didn't go for it.  It's really nice and ALL the people that I have introduce them to, have never gone back to anything else.  Most of the ladies don't live near a store that carry origin, at least an hour or more away... (me included), so whenever they buy, they usually buy two or three...

My mom is extremely generous about everything, but she is stingy about her Origin eyebrow pencil... lolz... she gave one to her of sister law (she bought 3)... and she was like... aww... I shouldn't have given it away... but she has been helping me a lot... lolz!

cali_lady - OMG, you are so right about that scarf! LOL! I remember shooting my niece with her senior photos that year and she wore that scarf in all her photos, I insisted she take some without the scarf but she didn't want to remove the darn thing!  ;D

As much as I love scarves, that is one print I did not add to my collection because everyone had it at the time. LOL
I like your clearance pants though!



Thanks.  :) yeah, when i first saw the scarf, in my mind i'm thinking "oooo..wow, Hmong inspired...i should get it..." but then i didn't realize ALMOST every teen had em'...so i never wore it out  :P

Like everyone else, I am in love with Anemone's style too!  :-* :-* :D

Today, I'm wearing a red/gray striped cardigan (F21) over a black tshirt (Mossimo brand from Target) and black pants (The Limited).

My male coworker (one who I'm NOT very fond of, btw) came over and said "You are wearing Ohio State colors!" I told him that I don't dress according to sports team colors and he was all trying to act slick about it. Good Lord!! Leave me alone!!

Now that I think about it, yesterday I wore a purple shirt and I didn't know that we were OK'ed to wear Packer jerseys/colors for the game against Vikings, so if we're using my coworker's logic, I was rooting for the Vikings. lol. Oh well. I don't care!  :2funny:

Lolz... I like that last one too... I'm gonna try that with this leather jacket the next time I wear it....I have a pair of kenneth cole  heels similar to that...

Google and Fashion Magazines have been my inspiration... after 13 years of being married to a control freak who picks out 4 outfits plus one shoe every 6 months for me, I didn't know how to dress anymore... so I have been trying to learn... but as y'all know... following the trend does not do well for us older ladies... so... I first started out just buying what I love... suits and blazers... that was all I knew... lolz...

Then leather jackets and lace whenever I can find something that does not look cheap or sleazy...

After that, I just browse until I see something that I like and could pull off with the stuff I have...

Are u serious 4 outfits and one pair of shoe every 6 months?  Must be outfits that u don't even want to wear but have to because of him?  If only I was working I would buy a little here and there every once in a while otherwise I don't have a reason for it unless I have to have it only because its a good steal/deal, fit good and probably won't come across it again especially when I'm petite.  I was able to grab some skinny slack/pant from Ross and Marshalls but only to end up not able to wear it because I am pregnant so probably will have to sit in my closet for a while.

I own a nice collection of lace stuff... but it's been from searching for many years... often, it's hard to fit my body b/c I have big hips, butts, and thighs... lolz... and calves too... only small part is my torso...

I was able to clean all off but because we had to wash it right away in a sink with club soda, the lace stretched out and the entire skirt looks off. It's supposed to be dry clean only  :-[

Yeap... and he would buy them 2 sizes too big... I didn't know how awful I looked until after we were separated...

I wanted to go out, so I asked one of my co-worker and she suggested that we go to a bar after work... so I asked her what does people usually wear... and she said jeans... so I went to work with a pair of boot cut jeans and a white button down shirt.... ALL day long people have been stopping by and talking to me... about 2:30... my friend/co-worker came over and said, I have got to see you what you on... everybody has been over by my desk telling I need to come over... lolz!  A few days later, I was talking to another of my co-worker... male... lolz... and I brought up the fact that other ladies... especially the younger ones... all wear jeans and white button down shirts, so I didn't see what the big fuss was all about

He said, "We just never knew you had that body underneath all those clothes..."  Lolz!  After I married my husband... and when we run into my ex's relatives... they hardly recognize me... and they all thought that I lost a ton a weight... lolz!  I only lost about 10 pounds... hahahaha... but changed from a size 14 down to a size 6.

I got my skirts from The Limited, H&M, Ann Taylor and the BR skirt I got from a forums. I like pencil style skirt so I look for lace pencil skirt.  Have you consider having the lace item alternated to fit your body? This lace skirt from Ann Taylor http://www.anntaylor.com/ann/product/AT-Petites/AT-Petite-Skirts/Petite-Glazed-Lace-Pencil-Skirt/266186?colorExplode=false&skuId=90228155&catid=cata000031&productPageTyp e=fullPriceProducts&defaultColor=2012 (http://www.anntaylor.com/ann/product/AT-Petites/AT-Petite-Skirts/Petite-Glazed-Lace-Pencil-Skirt/266186?colorExplode=false&skuId=90228155&catid=cata000031&productPageType=fullPriceProducts&defaultColor=2012) really slimthe body. It's pricey online but you can find it in store for a lot cheaper.

I bought a lace skirt from The Limited earlier this year. I wore it to a party where my then-fiance spilled red wine all over it   >:( :knuppel2:. I was able to clean all off but because we had to wash it right away in a sink with club soda, the lace stretched out and the entire skirt looks off. It's supposed to be dry clean only  :-[
That's a bummer.

LL...........s eem you can pull off wearing bright color and no wonder you like rich color like pink, purple, green, etc. or should I just said neon colors.  I think I have to stick with darker color from brown, black and grey only.  Maybe if I'm working like some of your ladies then I can be more into fashion otherwise I don't want to go beyond shopping or getting clothes/accessories/shoes every once in a while when I know it will sit in my closet for years.  My church day are over and with the kind of lifestyle I live doesn't involved going clubbing, bar, etc. or even a party......... that I don't have a single dress, skirt, etc. in my closet.  I only have dress pants and a few dress shirts but it seem like I'm getting rid of my dress shirts every once in a while but I do have plenty of sweater/cardigan which is something that can never go wrong with a pair of jean.

I used to just wear a lot of neutral colors too, but then they start making clothes in all these beautiful colors and I just love them.  For me, the color is not as important as the material and the fit.  Lolz... I only have one piece that is neon color... the rest are just bright jewel tones.

It's terribly hard to pull off a boyfriend jacket, especially if you're petite and plus size.

But, I think this jacket suits me; what do you ladies think?

Yeah, I wore this to dinner with the ladies after church.

How do you women find the time to dress up?!!! I do not dress up for work at all. I just go in a plain slack with a nice top. No make up either. LOLZ

No make up either, but when you have all the pieces, it's as easy as putting on a pair of slacks and top... you just have to get use to dressing that way.

I love the jean and shirt...but I don't think I could ever pull off the leather trench look! You rock it though!

I love all your outfits... lolz.

Wearing leather takes some "getting used to it."  It's easier when you have dressier pieces and that have to fit well.  Otherwise it looks sloppy and westernish or bikerish... feminine colors are the best.

I'm too lazy. All the years that I've been working. I never dress up. I just put on whatever makes me feel comfortable for the day. I figured I'll be sitting 8 hours of day. Don't want to wear clothes that will make me feel uncomfortable. I onlly dress up if there's a important meeting with a client.  ;D

I only wear comfortable clothes too.

It takes the same amount of effort... really.

Anemone,

With trench coats, they have to hit at the right spot... lolz.  I think you are taller than me... I am only 4' 10"... but usually wear 4 inch heels.

Anyway, this one is right at the knee, so it's good.  I have taken all of my trench coat and ask my co-worker to shorten them up to slightly above the knees.

By the way how's your stepdaughter doing and what grade is she in now?

lol Thanks LadyLionness. You have a great leather jacket collection. I don't own a really leather jacket just a fake one.

Reload, love the layered look!

TuesdaysGirl, thanks for sharing! I love the 2nd outfit and color combo!
Thanks Anemone. I love your grey and black outfit.

By the way how's your stepdaughter doing and what grade is she in now? 
SummerBerry my outfits are a mixed of old and new clothes. I usually head to the mall to window shop during lunch and I shop online when the store offer free shipping. I have a spending budget and try not to go over the budget.=)  I usually buy my clothes when there is a sale.  And yes my workplace required me to dress professional. No jean are available and there is no casual Friday.

My stepdaughter is great. She is growing up so quickly. It seems like it was just yesterday when she was 3 yrs. She is in 6th grade.

Blue-green shawl collar sweater - The Limited
Black pant with small light white strips - Express

My sister has the Michael Kors rose gold watch, it’s really nice. But I couldn’t get myself to buy one at that price. So I picked up this look-alike at Target. I figure I already have a nice classic Burberry watch so this cheapo will do just fine for now.  ;D
I saw the Michael Kors one. Love but too expensive for me. I don't wear watch often so I looking for a cheap one.=)

I just bought this last month and I love it.  I have not taken it off since I got it sized.  It's a man's watch, but I have been wanting something big like that and when I saw the rose gold, I thought it have just the right feminine touch.  I will try to remember to snap a pic the next time I post... mine the face is a bit bigger than Anemone, so it covers more of my wrist.

I have only started to feel more comfortable with the style that I have defined for me.  And this thread does help in a way.  Seeing all the professional office attire, I am tempted to get back to it.  I was so bored with them for a while and I rebelled and refused to wear them for about a year or so now... lolz.

My husband is an anything goes kind of a guy, except when he is preaching... then he 's in a suit... but I want to make him fashionable.  My favorite style for him is a black v-neck shirt (high quality), black slacks, and a black suit jacket.  Black socks and nice and comfortable dress shoes.

A nice black polo works too.

They're 3/12 inches heel. Since I'm so short. Most of my heel shoe are 3/12 inches.

Hey, as far as I am concerned, that's still part of your fashion style...

Do you assume you are walking around in your birthday suit with nice nails?  Lolz!

I say list your clothes anyway, whether you think they are fashionable or not.

 :D :D I gotta say my nails are REALLY bling blingin' today...haha. I keep looking at them cuz they're so sparkly.

Ok today I am wearing dark gray trousers from GAP, a black t shirt, and a dark red cable cardigan sweater. Only jewelry I have on are my fake diamond studs and my wedding band/ring.

your nails look awesome with your wedding bands.  Very nice.  So, what's your favorite color?  I have not worn nail polish since I gave birth to my first child.  She is turning 18 this Friday.

But recently, I have started wearing nail polish again.  My problem is that I only want to wear the green... and maybe the royal blue... lolz.  So in appropriate for work, I think...

LL, I know...I really like the greens, blues, purples, and glittery colors. We're not THAT conservative at work, but I'd rather not take my chances with my wacky colors. haha! I thought this one was work appropriate because it's still kinda muted for a glitter.  :D it's not like a lime green glitter, you know.

forgot to take a pic of my outfit yesterday... will try to remember for today.


Today's outfit:  Still trying to dress more on the professional side...

1.  The Limited black slacks - cassidy cut.
2.  Covington black v-neck shirt
3.   Wilson red leather blazer - so beautiful... I also have this exact style in yellow, mint green, and blue.  I will have to take some pictures to show you guys... lolz.  Yes yes, I know, I am probably the only leather jacket fanatic here.
4.  Born red maryjanes pump.
5.  Red and white paisley scarf - silk/ cashmere blend - bought from Kroger for $9.99.  Too bad this year's supply is only a polyester blend, but still wears really nicely, so I bought 4, $6.99 each.. there's there more I would like to buy.

No photo today. I’m just lazy.

Navy top, NY&Co
Navy straight leg pants (as close to skinny pants as I’ll ever get…ahaa), Gap
Long carmel sweater, H&M
Beige ballet flats


Urgh, not clothes related but I'm just annoyed. So about 3 weeks ago I chopped off about 12 inches of hair. My hair is now shoulder length. Today, one of my co-workers asked.."Hey, did you get a hair cut?".... WTF - yeah, like 3 freakin weeks ago!  :idiot2:
Anemone - My co-workers are like that too.

Fashion Victim, Trends Slave - Why It Is Bad And How You Can Avoid The Pitfalls Of Seasonal Fads

As a fashion blogger, I am (or should be) really accepting of people going overboard with 'style', but I have to say, I am guilty of laughing at "don't" photos of Glamour magazine - People with their eyes hidden behind a black rectangle, totally unaware of how uncool and funny (not in a good way) they look!  I think Oscar de la Renta must be thinking of such people when he coined the term 'Fashion Victim' that is used to define a person who is unable to identify commonly recognized boundaries of style.  Fashion victims are victims because they are vulnerable to faddishness (intense but short lived fashion trends) and materialism and consequently are at the mercy of society's prejudices or of the commercial interest of the fashion industry, or of both. I have a another word for a situation like this - 'Trends Slave' - when we forget the style and only focus on whats new. We are actually susceptible of of getting something new without making sure that it looks good on us. And society's prejudices aside, being slave to 'trends' has some other downfalls too-
1.Trends slaves work with the latest fashion, not with their own body
Hence the black rectangle over the eyes!! I f I wear something that is all the rage, but doesn't make me look good - its not for me! The trend should fit my body, not the vice versa. You will never feel beautiful or stylish if you 'judge' yourself with clothes/hair/beauty products made for other people's body.
2.Trends slaves shop more than they should (yes, shopping should have a budget limit! Its not like its 2006 y'all!)
When the trends slaves try to catch up with ALL the new trends, they make retailers very happy, but spend more of their hard earned money on another pair of shoes they may not wear after this fall. EVER. Debt on young shoulders is a scary thing.
3.Trends slaves neglect the existing good pieces in their wardrobe
Because they are so busy buying the latest IT things, they seldom realize the worth of existing great pieces. Blindsided by the latest style, they forget that they have 3 other, better fitting outfits hanging in the back of the closet!
4.Trends slaves lose their style identity
Trends slaves forget what is unique about their own style and just blindly follow the latest IN thing! Versace had once said, "When a woman alters her look too much from season to season, she becomes a fashion victim". You know why after decades, we still remember Grace Kelley and Audrey Hepburn as style icons - they did not change with fashion, they changed fashion with them!
5.Trends slaves have messy closets
And for obvious reasons! If you collect 'things' because 'some people' are saying these are the 'must haves', chances are you collect junk too - Ain't Hoarders a REALITY show??? And Most regular people don't have Kardashian Kloset space!! (ughh, i had sworn I will never mention those Kitches* on my blog!)

But not being the trends slave doesn't mean you can not keep up with whats hot. Invest some time to figure out what works best for you, what is needed NOW and what can wait, what is smart and what is not! Its as simple as going to a buffet and eat what you really love and what makes you fell good! All you can eat is not really ALL you can eat!!
Here is how not to be trends slave (while rocking the newest trends!)-
Know your body - Wide leg pants on a super petite frame might not be a good idea, even though the celeb picture in magazine screams at you to buy it.

Know your style - Follow the trends that make you feel comfortable in your own skin. From personal experience - I know I have a more conservative style, and I LOVE seeing other people pushing out of their comfort zone.  But If I am not comfortable enough to wear something with total confidence, Its not for me - even if its the number one trend this season!

Know your environment - A traditional office environment demands a different closet than say, a trendy boutique PR firm. Whats new doesn't make it fit for all the occasions/places.

Know your logistics - What is your budget, how much closet space do you have, If you need or have storage space needed for not-in-use items - answer these question before you make a buying decision - unless its something you really need and can work with it even with logistical constraints.
Now I have a question for you - How do you decide if you want that latest "must have"?

Reload Wife.......... you was able to grab something from Jason Wu line.  Last night while watching my favorite tv series " Revenge" while on commerical.... ....it was the 1st time I got attention or a grip of Jason Wu line for Target.  I did check out both Target by my house on Sunday but the line was not carried there and they had nothing.  I might go later today since I need to grab a few supplies I'm donating to my son preschool Valentine's party since I can't be around to volunteer so I always buy something off the list for the teacher whenever there is a little party or event.

Reload Wife.......... you was able to grab something from Jason Wu line.  Last night while watching my favorite tv series " Revenge" while on commerical.... ....it was the 1st time I got attention or a grip of Jason Wu line for Target.  I did check out both Target by my house on Sunday but the line was not carried there and they had nothing.  I might go later today since I need to grab a few supplies I'm donating to my son preschool Valentine's party since I can't be around to volunteer so I always buy something off the list for the teacher whenever there is a little party or event.
I heard about the Jason Wu through facebook last year and noted the date in my calendar. I was one of the crazy people. I went to the store at 7:15am since I didn't know what to expect. There were only a few who were there for the Jason Wu collection. I got the chance to tried on several piece the store carried. The clothes were very boxy so I just settle on one piece.  =)

That's what I see with all the "designer" coming to target and Kohls... does not compare to their normal brand.  I love vera wang but have not bought anything from her Simply Vera line... bought one trench that I ended up giving away to my daughter.

Personally I think the Jason Wu collection for Target is better than Vera Wang for Kohls.

Unfortunately, if they are boxy, they won't work on me... I have broad shoulders and gigantic hips... and a small torso... so boxy will literally make me look like a box...


The only designer that I could wear at Department store end are:  Max Azria's (designer of BCBG and Herve Ledger) for Sears and Walmart....

Otherwise I prefer their designer brand.

Lolz... probably not much better than the Simply Vera line which is such a disappointment ... looks great on the hangers but awful on... I think they just "buy" the designer's name... I doubted if the designer is really designing these clothes for them... the thing I like about designer clothes is not so much the "look" of it but the fit... I remember reading that Vera spend hours and hours putting the seam in just the right spot to create the best fit and drape... none of that exist in the Simply Vera line...

I am very disappointed in the Jennifer Lopez line too... she has big hips like me, so I figured the clothes would flatter my body type... PLEATS??? come on... seriously?  argh...

Post by: LadyLionness on February 15, 2012, 06:31:00 PM
Why?  I just get what works or fits well.  I usually get the stock shirts (with standard sizing) taken in a bit.  IDK, 18 1/2 neck by 34/35 sleeves generally tend to be slightly wider at the waist.  For a couple of bucks, I get them fitted.   O0

MA's line, or even Express for Men...no dice.  Doesn't fit me right.   :-X

I could see why Marc Anthony's line would not work for you, HPA.  Even the women's they are pretty slim fitting... which is why I love his leather jackets.

2.  Teri Jon Velvet Jacket
3.  Hmong Sau

5.  Sofft black ankle boots

Funny ya'll are talking about color blocking. Wearing a hot pink top today (limited) with navy blue cardigan (limited).

This is a different pink for me as I normally don't venture into something this bright...but I actually really like it with the navy blue.

Try to post a picture later.

Ohh... I haven't tried hot pink with navy... but I love it with olive green... and then with gray... I love red and purple together also.

I got something odd on today... might post a pic just to show the colors... but I don't really like the "fit" of the pieces... I will list it here and post up the pic later...

Grey and black python print skinny jeans - JC Penny
Mint green dolman sleeve top - Max Azria for Miley Cyrus (Walmart)
Orange Liz Claiborne (I think) button down peasant blouse on top
Andrew Marc black leather jacket
Born yellow heel sandals

No scarfs today b/c the blouse is founcy already... was too busy...

LL- Ok so maybe I've been reading too many fashion blogs where they pick apart celebrities outfits and styling but as I was looking through your pictures, I'm beginning to pick apart some of your styling.  I'm no fashion experts, but I do have opinions.  If you don't mind, could I point some out?

The hems on your pants - most of them look a bit too long.

The shoes in that purple jacket picture needs to go.  I think that's the best outfit you showed, but it's ruined by those shoes.... they totally look too clunky for that sleek look and the brown is not working for it at all. Try a gray pair. and not by Born.

The scarf in the olive jacket is a skosh too long... it's throwing off your proportions... with wide leg pants, the scarf shouldn't come half way down to your thighs... maybe wear it shorter, just right below where the jacket ends...?

And then in the black trench jacket picture, there's too many elements, you have the zippers in the jackets, the buckles on the shoes, the open zipper on the arm, the watch, the hem on the pants... I think if you sub a different pair of shoes, maybe a pair of color boot (with no visible buckles) and switch out the scarf with no fringes so that the fringes and the zippers on the coat don't make your middle area look so busy...? or don't even wear a scarf...the jacket is the star here, so maybe try something sleek and minimal (a dress with color pump)

Then the one with the green jacket, I think it would look awesome without that red scarf.  It's simple but colorful.

And the white trench picture, at first glance, it looks like a doctor overcoat... with your hair down and all.   Maybe put your hair in a chignon, and change out the shoes... try a wedge?

I don't know......kuv laam tau laam has xwb, hopefully you're not mad at me for making some stupid suggestions :)

No, absolutely not... that's the purpose of this thread... to learn from each other... will try your suggestions... lolz...

The hems... I have been thinking on it... but haven't decided yet... the wide leg pants one... just haven't have time yet...

ok thanks!  I think the wide legs jean is good, it looks really good on you but somehow the black pants one doens't.  Maybe it's the cut in the thighs... the jeans looks more fitted and straight whereas the black one looks like a looser fit.

LL- Ok so maybe I've been reading too many fashion blogs where they pick apart celebrities outfits and styling but as I was looking through your pictures, I'm beginning to pick apart some of your styling.  I'm no fashion experts, but I do have opinions.  If you don't mind, could I point some out?

The hems on your pants - most of them look a bit too long.

The shoes in that purple jacket picture needs to go.  I think that's the best outfit you showed, but it's ruined by those shoes.... they totally look too clunky for that sleek look and the brown is not working for it at all. Try a gray pair. and not by Born.

Forget the gray... try it with these!

(http://images.hhbrown.com/Born/Pair/B16813-145x155.png)

I was looking at Born shoes because you have them in every one of your outfits...and I was wondering what's up with them? i have one pair of Born shoes and I hardly wear it.  Anyway, then I saw this pair of gorgeous blue sandal and I loved it!    It's a wedge...and it's Born so I thought I suggest it to you.  

I might even get it for myself.... maybe.  :2funny: :2funny:  More than likely, NOT!

(yes I have a long afternoon to kill!)

Born shoes feels like gym shoes, you can walk around in them all day... yes, those are beautiful... I will have to pick up that ... don't have blue shoes yet...

yes They do feel comfortable, but the overal asthestic of the look is just not my cup of tea. Except that blue wedge - I love that color, but at $115?  Nah.

I only have a pair that looks like this and I wear it occassionally.  Bought it Marshalls for $49.

I don't wear the flat born ... well except for the beautiful flat flora sandals...

I like mine and I like the new styles coming out... Can't wait to buy some.  I usually wait until eBay has them for roughly $50 or less before I buy them...

Anyway. I'm feel bad for making all those suggestions. It might seem like I'm criticizing you without sharing my own outfits.  I don't have a camera with me and my cell phone sucks, so here's what I can find on the internet.
I don't have any fancy jackets... just standard items.

Yeah, it's hard to get into a comfortable style.  I don't know what my style is, but it's not trendy. I guess it's more of a classical style - straight lines, clean hems, not of lot of those trendy details like bows, ruffles or braids or all those bell and whistles. 

I like jackets too, but cardigans more.  It seems to me like you like outwear jackets -- all of those jackets are outwears.  Do you wear them all day long in the office?

Yes, I do.  I have blazers too and I love them equally.  The colored leather jackets are actually not outerwear... as they are designed to be worn fitted...same as blazers... the trench coats are more outerwear, but I try to find light materials... I have more... will have to wear them and take pix...

Thanks, Anemone.  I don't mind constructive criticism either.  But, I've observed that, most often times, people don't like things being pointed out to them.  Especialy here on PH, for some reason.

I am not an fashion expert and by no means am I "fashionable"!   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:  Heck, most days, I look like a bum, esp in summer.  But, I do like fashion and I'm learning to accessorize --- just not on myself.  I like to do it to other people -- same with makeup and hair.  I love doing other's hair and makeup, but hate doing my own.  Not sure why that is...  :2funny:

Constructive criticism is not bad.

I would not mind at all if anyone gave me feedback on how I dressed. In fact, I welcome it! I think we can all learn something from each other. What I think looks awesome on my body might not be true, maybe I just think it looks awesome because I’m so comfortable with it and when we get comfortable, we don’t step outside our comfort-zone.

I rather someone be honest with me than try to sugar coat it and tell me I look “great” all the time without any real feedback.

Heck, I might start posting my daily wears again. I still need to find what works well for me, how to style my clothes, etc…

thajyeeb, I think you're on to something here.  O0

and yes, please post up your daily wears.  I have noticed that you like the same styling as me... LOL.  

I dont think I will ever be able to post up my daily wear - because one, it means I'll have to dress up everyday and two, I hardly have time in the morning to grab a bite to eat before I herd my kids off to school.  so, unless I wake up extra early and dress up all the time, I'll just critique!   :D

I wanted to point out some items from LL's photo's but didn't want to say anything either. I'm no fashion expert and I'm very NPAJ NAUJ so I have no right to give constrictive criticism. ehehehe

This thread is inspiring me to post some of my daily outfits however I throw whatever on. My workplace is business casual but I do it with no style. I wear whatever I feel like in the morning and they do not match at all. LMAO

Here’s my share for today.

It’s casual week at the office this week so I’m in jeans. And today we have some award ceremony so my division was slotted to wear yellow.

Mustard cardigan – NY&Co (one of my favorite sweaters, bought it about 4 yrs ago)
Cream shell – Ann Taylor LOFT
Dark boot cut jeans – Levi (petite)
Black strappy wedge – Mossimo Target

(http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo234/burberry78/IMAG1414.jpg)

That's something that I would wear on a daily basis.   ;D I think it looks fine, but you could change out the cream shell for something more visually stimulating, a print or a floral to compliment the mustard cardigan.  And pair the cream shell with a wild-color/print cardigan to tone it down.

I’m not big on prints so that’s my problem. And I’m very self cautious about my body so I just feel like prints scream attention. I wear cardigans/sweaters/anything that covers up…almost daily. And 98% of my cardigans are solid colors.

My wardrobe is pretty safe and boring. I really don’t experiment a lot and I am not a very trendy person.

I think it would be interesting if someone else dressed me though, I'd like to see what kind of clothes they’d put me in.  ;D

Are you sure about that? See that yellow floral tee shirt I posted yesterday? You're saying you can't wear something like that underneath? It's basically just a v-neck tshirt with some floral prints from Liz Clairborne at JCP.  

How about something like this from Anne Taylor website:  

(http://anntaylor2.richfx.com.edgesuite.net/image/media/273514_6079_pdlg488x600.jpg)
It's pretty safe but has some visual interest from the vertical strips, and the muted grays (I think it's gray).  

I'd be interested to see what others put on me too.  Do you watch What Not To Wear? I watch it religiously and all the re-runs too.  When I go to the store, I try to go outside my normal, safe items.  And I've tried to stay in one store and make an outfit. Or else, I buy pieces from different places and then I take a picture of it so that when I go shopping elsewhere, I'll remember to buy something to go with it.  It's frustrating and time consuming (so don't take along any kids or spouse!), but it makes sense! You can go home and have a complete outfit (minus the shoes, of course, and the purse hahahaha)

I have a lot of solids too, but I'm finding that when I piece a solid cardigan with a printed shell (or vice versa) - I feel better about how I look that day.  Plus, if you're frugal, the printed piece is very verstile and you can mix and match with other color cardigan.  So, that yellow floral top from Anne Taylor, I'd pair it with the yellow cardigan, the lavender one the next time, a gray one the next time and a coral one another time.  You can belt it in with a pencil skirt or capris.  I love capris with summer cardigan -- it's my go-to summer style. LOL

See this printed cardigan? You can pair this with the cream shell you have on.
(http://blog.couponalbum.com/images/2010/11/women-printed-cardigan.jpg)


Or, I flip it around and wear a solid cadigan with a printed top to tone down the print.

(http://img4.realsimple.com/images/1009/white-sweater-skirt_300.jpg)

This is the style that I normally wear... so I have a lot of cardigans and printed tshirt/shells.  ;D

These are just pictures I found on the internet, but you get the picture now, right? You said you're a visual person, so I got some pictures for you.    :2funny:

LOL! I know... I used to only have solids, but, I love prints now and I only buy the ones in my taste preferences.  I don't do the wild animal prints or the African prints, but I do like florals - not big florals, but florals in abstract designs, and other printed abstract.

Now, I am into a black shirt only phrase... and adding colors via outer layers or scrafs...
I got over the black and brown and white phase.  I found that I actually look really good in colors!  LOL!!   :2funny:  Especially gemstone colors and even some soft feminine color like-- PINK, lavender and coral! who knew!  

OHH!  Ladies -- go try on gemstone colors tops -- with our dark hair, it frames our face beautifully!!  I swear it!  For me, it's the amethyst, emerald, green and garnet colors that really stand out.

thayeeb,

I do wear colors... and I used to be into gemstone colored tops b/c I use to have all neutral jackets and bottoms... but now that I have colored jackets and pants, I prefer a dark, solid base to build from.

I do still have a few prints and colors that I wear when I am wearing a neutra color jacket.

I can not do colored pants. They scream 80's and old to me.  Maybe it's because when we were young, my parents always got us whatever color pants (or clothings) they could find at the salvation army or the thrift stores.  :2funny:

It's like hardwood floors.  Back then, we were poor and always lived in houses with hardwood floorings.  I've always thought that hardwood floorings were for poor people who can't afford carpets.  (:idiot2: @ me) Everyone that we knew then that had nice houses always had beautiful carpeted living rooms/bedrooms. As I got older, I learned that hardwood floors are the desired choice of floors.

Lolz, it's funny how our childhood impression affects us today, huh?  To this day, I hardly ever eat tootsie rolls.. b/c as kids, we would take a dollar to the candy store and buy 100 candy... some toosties, some of theose pink bubble gum... so to me they were poor people candy....

I love colored skinnies... but trying to not buy too much b/c it's trendy.... so it could go out of style soon...  so far, I only have the green one and a blue one... the rest are all neutral colors...

I have some tops and cardigans very similar to the visuals you posted. I will put an outfit together tomorrow and you guys can give me some feedback. I feel like the prints don't look good on me, like I can't pull it off. But who knows...look forward to constructive feedback.  :)

Looking forward to it! I thought about playing dress up last night and posting up some of usual looks, but, decided against it. Was too tired after dinner, and since I have no husband for the week, I wanted to sit and relax with a book instead since no one will be interrupting me every few minutes to look for something he "misplaced".

OK! So tonight, I decided, on a whim, to take some pictures of some normal tops that I usually wear.  I didn't change out the jeans (but most of the times, I'm in jeans or slack - rarely in skirts), and didn't add any accessories because I'm just too damn lazy right now -- and because, frankly, I dont have alot of cool accessories.  The ones that I do have are for dressier occassions, which didn't go well with these normal, everyday wear.  (I'll have to remedy that!) 

These are pretty standard looks for me. I'm looking to change it up, but MAN! It takes $$$$ to get some nice clothes!!! I do a lot of mix n match as you can see and trying to work with patterns (after watching Mondo on Project Runway).

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits039.jpg)
I think this yellow tshirt is a skosh too short and too tight across the chest, huh?

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits035.jpg)
optical illusion is good... makes me look like I actually have skinny thighs!!

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits030.jpg)
I could've used a different belt, but ....this was on top and it's skinny enough! It'll do.
OH! And in order for this look to work, I find that you must have a skinny torso or your fat will look divy up like this...sad but true.

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits021.jpg)
wow, do I have a flat azz or what?? My butt doesnt even fill out the jeans. hahahah...

So, gimme your critiques..... ....what accessories can I add?  I think the lengths of the cardigans are just right for me, not too long and not too short.  What else can I wear with it besides jeans? I've tried skirts, but I don't think I look good in skirts.  Too short-waisted and short-legged.  Plus, I'm chubby, so I tend to stay away from them because I have fat knees.  :-\

ThajYeeb, your attire and mix goes very well with e/o. I can't pull that off since my body type and shape is different from yours. I only wear solid prints and can pull off animal prints. Animal prints are only for the nightlife. Other than that it's mainly solid colors. I have 2 or 3 that has some kind of design but it's more on one spot versus all over the shirt.

As for skirts, you can totally pull it off. I see you in a Pencil skirt down to your knee's. It will accentuate your body and give you a very sexy and sophisticated look. Here's a visual of a pencil skirt below your knee.

Yeah the yellow shirt is too short, it was meant to go with another yellow cardigan also cut a little bit short.

As for skirts, you can totally pull it off. I see you in a Pencil skirt down to your knee's. It will accentuate your body and give you a very sexy and sophisticated look. Here's a visual of a pencil skirt below your knee.

I have a black pencil skirt that is a high waisted one and I LOVE it. I gained weight so it's a little tight on me but need to lose some weight to fit back into it. lol

Thanks....I like the colors too, but still trying to mix and match patterns.  I'm liking it more than I thought I would.  Also, I actually own quite alot of skirts and dresses, and some of these cardigans were bought to go with a skirt.  it's just that I just don't like to wear them to work (fat knees, ugly legs, more work, etc).  I have a black waist high pencil skirt too, and yes, I agree, it's very figure-flattering -- BUT -- I hate wearing it to work because, as you said, it's too sophisticated. Our workplace is not that kind of environment.  And if I dress up, then I feel as if the other folks are looking.  And if I wear heels, the long walk down the hallway makes too much noise with all that heels clicking on the floor.  *sigh*  Brings too much un-necessary attention.

That's why I wear BORN shoes to work only... all rubber, no clicking of heels down the hall way.... I know they are not the most flattering shoes, but for 3.5 inches and  cuter than most painful shoes... I will live in these the rest of my life... lolz!   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

I was lazy this morning so I didn’t spend too much time picking an outfit out. I’ll put more effort tonight.

I decided to pair a fuchsia top with a gray/cream print cardigan with dark denim jeans, and black heels. After I took the picture and saw it, I didn’t love the outfit so I changed up the printed cardigan and went with a black cardigan & chunky grey necklace and went to work (solid on solid again...I know!).

(sorry for the weird color, I had my camera set on the lomo effect and was running late so didn’t have time to retake a picture in normal settings).

Just changed the cardigan and put on necklace, wore the same jeans.

(http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo234/burberry78/IMAG1421.jpg)



Ohh Anemone, I like the 1st look!  You should've stuck with it! You can add the necklace of the 2nd look to it to really make a statement.    You probably didn't like the look of the 1st one because you're not used to wearing it in that combination.  I think your comfort zone is solid on solid.

The 2nd look is fine, but it's just SOOOoooo plain.  And black and red is such an ordinary combo - I'm trying not to do ordinary combo (even though I did do a yellow and black combo in one of my looks hahahah)

yeah but.... but I don't like Borne shoes.  I think they are too clunky and makes my feet look bigger in proportion to the rest of my body, like a caricature of a tiny head, spare tire in the middle and big feet sticking out.   :2funny: :2funny:

I found an ankle boot with rubber heels, and some other ones from Aerosole.  Plus, in the summer, it's mainly flip flops.

I feel you on the work environment. I tend to dress according to my work environment which is very casual as well. I use to wear heels to work all the time but walking from the parking ramp, down the hall, up the stairs, then to my cube was such a damn hassle. So I learned to leave a pair of heels at work, wear my flats, and change when i'm here. lol

I'm not a dress nor skirt type of girl. I would only wear it on special occassion. I would pair if with a black nylons cause I'm very conscious of my fat white legs and surgery scar as well.

I actually like the second look. I don't like wearing animal prints to work cause it screams ATTENTION! That's just me. LOL
I would wear the first look for an evening/weekend outing though.

I like both look, but the first one is more casual and I think Anemone's work place is more formal.  My work place is super casual, so I could probably get away with almost anything... but I don't like dressing too sexy to work... I just don't feel comfortable...

OK! So tonight, I decided, on a whim, to take some pictures of some normal tops that I usually wear.  I didn't change out the jeans (but most of the times, I'm in jeans or slack - rarely in skirts), and didn't add any accessories because I'm just too damn lazy right now -- and because, frankly, I dont have alot of cool accessories.  The ones that I do have are for dressier occassions, which didn't go well with these normal, everyday wear.  (I'll have to remedy that!) 

These are pretty standard looks for me. I'm looking to change it up, but MAN! It takes $$$$ to get some nice clothes!!! I do a lot of mix n match as you can see and trying to work with patterns (after watching Mondo on Project Runway).

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits039.jpg)
I think this yellow tshirt is a skosh too short and too tight across the chest, huh?

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits035.jpg)
optical illusion is good... makes me look like I actually have skinny thighs!!

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits030.jpg)
I could've used a different belt, but ....this was on top and it's skinny enough! It'll do.
OH! And in order for this look to work, I find that you must have a skinny torso or your fat will look divy up like this...sad but true.

(http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/vv304/a20p100/outfits021.jpg)
wow, do I have a flat azz or what?? My butt doesnt even fill out the jeans. hahahah...

So, gimme your critiques..... ....what accessories can I add?  I think the lengths of the cardigans are just right for me, not too long and not too short.  What else can I wear with it besides jeans? I've tried skirts, but I don't think I look good in skirts.  Too short-waisted and short-legged.  Plus, I'm chubby, so I tend to stay away from them because I have fat knees.  :-\   

Thajyeeb, I really like the way you mix up prints with solid colors. I use to always be a solid & solid type of girl but I've learned it's much more dazzling with prints.  O0

I agree with Anemone for you to try straight leg pants. They do elongate you and give you  more of a fitted look ?

My workplace is very formal as well. Well we have 2 buildings and the first one is very formal with suits/ties, dresses, etc but the second one where I work at we're all more casual. We don't have the executives and vp's in this building so we're all more laid back.  ;D

MHS and Anemone, did my jeans look like skinny jeans to you guys? cuz it's actually a straight leg.  :2funny:   Maybe they're too tight in the middle area...? Or my thighs are too chunky...?  Anyway, my problem with jeans is that I have a spare tire, but small waist and small (okay, fine, sagggggy) butt and slightly larger thighs.  (Getting old and fat.  Two of the most evil-est combo out there!) It's hard to fine a pair of good jeans that fits everywhere.

Post by: DeceiversChick on March 22, 2012, 11:45:10 AM
thajyeeb -

Here are my thoughts:

Your outfits are fine and I think you’re good with mixing it up. If I could change anything, I would put a darker denim on you. Or perhaps wear straight leg/slightly cropped pants in black or a nice cream or light khaki color now that spring is here.

The only look I didn’t love was the print on print. Maybe I need to see it in person but I didn’t love it. LOL!

I love the pink cardigan w/ black&white though!

As far as accessories - I tend to wear a lot of accessories because my clothes are pretty solid so I layer the accessories on to change it up a big. If I’m wearing anything printy or too busy then I don’t do accessories at all, maybe just a bracelet if anything. But on most days, I wear necklaces – long, short, chunky, pendant, etc…

I agree with the fitted and slight cropped pants.

So, here are some mixing of prints and patterns I found on the web.  I never actually liked it before and always thought, how ugly, when I see people mix patterns.  But, after much digging into it and looking around the web -- and watching Mondo do it on Project Runway last season, I was really intrigued.

I'd love to be able to mix and match prints and patterns like this one day:

Mondo's work

Anyway, you get the idea.  Mix and match, with a bold color splash.  I don't know if this something that I can actually pull off, but I like the concept of it.

well, yes, quite true.......... ..these were made for models, and they're all slim and skinny -- and TALL.  I was just showing you guys the concepts of mixing patterns and stuff.  It's not that you should go around looking like a bowl of Trix or Fruit Loops cereal.  You would have to be picky and choose pattern wisely according to taste, construction and how it flatters you in areas that you wish to hide or accentuate.

LMAO, I'mwith you. I refuse to mix patterns cause I'm a chunky gal. It will make me look very npaj nauj and ruam. It's more fitting for skinny chicks. I guess I'll stick to solid colors. I do wear some tops with beads/some kind of design but only on a certain area and not all over the top.

But how would you know if it flatters you when you do look like a bowl of trix? I have no sense of fashion so i wouldn't be able to tell if it does flatter me or not. I may think it does but everyone else doesn't. I dont' have any fashion sense friends who can give me advice so if it looks ugly on me I'm going to stay away from it. lol

I don't think that's true at all.  I used to think that too, but, that's just because we see it on runway models all the time, so it's more ingrained in our heads.  But I like patterns and prints now more than solids and I'm not a skinny chick by any means! 

Here's a blog you can look at for inspiration:  http://www.tminus-tplus.com/2011_03_01_archive.html

I love how she's not afraid to be big and bold.  Some of the outfits don't work, imo inexperience eyes, but most of them do work and she looked fabulous.  When they do work, you don't see all the lumps and bumps...you see a smooth silhouette, with curves in the right places.  I'm not a big gal like her, but I like her blog nonetheless.

Well, I don't know how but if you keep trying, eventually, you'll learn what works for your body and what doesn't.  By now, you should've came across all these "rules" about stripes, what type of clothings works best for your body shape, and what type of fabric looks good, what cut accentuates and flatters you, and you stick with those basics.  Plus, you don't have to go from head to toe in prints or patterns.  I'm not quite there yet... it takes some getting used to.  I started with tshirt and blouses, then cardigans and then adding on skirts.  I haven't even gone into the shoes or scarfs or bags ---or pattern nylons.  Start small and simple and build from there.  

You can read about the rules of mixing patterns, colors and such.  I just started about a year ago and I'm not that good at it but at least, I'm trying. There's a lot of information out there if you really want to learn, then you go start with what you have in the closet and then eventually to the store to try them on!  

In T-minus, T-plus blog, she has a page on mixing patterns and colors.  You can search for other blogs too.
Here's the page on the mixing patterns:

Subtle prints like chains, architectural designs, simple 2-color plaids, tweeds are all flattering. 

Also, I'm learning that the better quality of the fabric, the better construction of it, the extra details to the lining, darts, boning etc -- they all really make a big difference! But they cost more $$$$!

Yes I like this too! I always shy away from animal-looking print, like that skirt, but that actually looks really nice.  

Also, you don't have to mix and match print from head to toe like the pictures I posted -- this toning down a big print is a basic concept that I use.  If I have a big floral cardigan, I tone it down by wearing a solid shirt underneath. or vice versa.

That's how I prefer to do my prints too... but they can't be too busy or I look like I just keep on expanding.

I only buy brands that I own already... and only in styles and cuts that I know fits my body.  I have taken a few risks... and discovered some really awesome brands... such as the Nicola Berti Leather jackets... which I love... he will become super high end some day.. but for now, I buy most of his stuff that I see on ebay... lolz...

Not a huge fan of leather, but you talking about it makes me want to wear them in this hot weather! Stop it already! :D

Not great at it, but I'm okay with mixing solids and certain prints only. Some of you ladies are SO lucky to get to wear open-toed pumps. Not me. :'( Here's what I'm wearing today:

LuLus Fuchsia Cropped Jacket

This pretty cobalt ruffle dress I just got in the other day from modcloth.com. Very comfy! I just paired this with a plain pink skinny belt I picked up from the thrift some time ago.

And Fergie stilettos in hot pink!


Anemone, love the nail polish choices. I only go neutral with the nails because I never make enough time to change it with my outfits accordingly. :( Maybe I should start doing it just so I can post up pictures too, lol. :D

Constructive criticism is not bad.

I would not mind at all if anyone gave me feedback on how I dressed. In fact, I welcome it! I think we can all learn something from each other. What I think looks awesome on my body might not be true, maybe I just think it looks awesome because I’m so comfortable with it and when we get comfortable, we don’t step outside our comfort-zone.

I rather someone be honest with me than try to sugar coat it and tell me I look “great” all the time without any real feedback.

Heck, I might start posting my daily wears again. I still need to find what works well for me, how to style my clothes, etc…

thajyeeb, I think you're on to something here.  O0

I'm still learning how to style clothes and love feedback too.

I like that color and I'm sure it'll look good on you.  But I was looking at the lapels and thinking, how big are they? The points seems too long (more than half way across the front of the shoulder) and too big for my small shoulders.

Confession time: I get too absorbed and immersed in this blog.  I go there when I want to rip up some beautiful models (or actresses) in expensive dresses that I can't afford.  *sigh*  I think that's why I'm looking at clothes and styling with new eyes.  When I look at a celebrity, they look fabulous to my untrained eyes, but TLo always find something b!tchy to critique say about their outfits and they're always right!

LOL! I did critique you!

But I think this is really great what we just started doing. This is going to inspire me to put outfits together to see what you gals think! I am not fashionable or trying to stay hip or anything like that. My main goal is to make sure I still look nice, despite being a working mother, housewife, etc... A woman should never use it as an excuse to not look nice, you know what I mean?

Plus like I said before, it's good to hear other people's opinion. I am open to change and ideas. What I think looks great on me - might not be so.

Yes you did and I've written it all down, along with the clothing stores that were suggested and what I found online

but what about Reload Wife's outfits? And what about accessories for me?? I'm pairing colors, but I don't know what to do with accessories. I hate wearing necklaces.  When I put on a necklace with earrings, all I see is the necklace and the earrings popping out, I dont even see my me or my outfit anymore.

I have to set a budget now. Makeup budget and clothes budget.   :2funny:

Anemone - You're too sweet. The clothes does a good job of hiding my tummy fat and rolls.  My nude pumps are a bit bigger on me so I'm in the search for a better nude pump. I saw some on the target websites but I am not to sure about the pump. I would love to get a pair from Ann Taylor but it too expensive for me.

I'm with both of you guys on this too. I would like to look nice, but limited budget and hard to find pieces that fit.  I've started to do my own tailoring, simple things like hemming pants and pulling in straps and side seams on a simple top. 

You ladies are really into the ensembles!   ;)

Should guys be more attentive, ladies?  I mean, one can slob out so much, right?  Thanks.
I don't know about the guys. My husband used to dress pretty sloppy for work, until he got promoted to a project manager.  We threw out all his old shirts and pants and got new ones, more fitted for his body.  Before, he bought whatever was on the clearance rack whether they fit or not... most of the times, they were ill-fitting.  And ugleeeee!  Now, he looks so much more put together and he likes it!   ;D

Here is another blog I visit regularly.  Look into the Body Proportions, Body Shapes and Body Variations tabs.  If you don't know your body shape, that'll help you figure it out.

She also goes into the fashion rule of thirds and how to build a column of color for your body shape.  Very helpful indeed.

Def my favorite of the 3. This is the best season to wear bright, fresh colors! I love that skirt of yours. It reminds me of floral watercolors.

The necklace looks nice on you!, but it wouldn't have been my preference. Instead, I may pair it with layered, spacious beaded necklaces or a simple floral necklace like this one here for a romantic and vintage feel O0:

Pretty casual today with Friday. And more solid on solid. I looked in my closet last night and I guess I don't have as many prints as I thought I did! Maybe that means I should go shopping this weekend.  :)

I’m wearing a black chiffon blouse with dark-washed Levi jeans, these are straight leg jeans, the closest I’ll ever get to wearing skinny jeans. LOL

Decided to go with my favorite black heels today. And I threw on a gold/emerald necklace.

If you guys are looking for blogs for inspiration – I really like this one. She’s really petite and I’m nowhere near her size, but her outfits are inspiring so I check her blog regularly. I love her styling. If I was her size, I’d totally sport her clothes. LOL

I also like that she mix and matches affordable pieces with expensive pieces. Most of her clothes are from H&M or Gap, etc… She wears Target heels but she also sports expensive CL heels. I never shopped at H&M much until I started reading her blog – that’s when I realized that H&M does have some nice and affordable pieces.

I agree with the ladies. The maxi skirt looks soooooo nice. From what I've seen, it's usually a skinny belt that gets paired with the maxi.

I don't think I can pull off this look. I'm very petite. If I wore this, it will drag on the ground or I'll look like a ghastly ghost/ poj dab. LOL!! :2funny:

Anemone, would love to see you style your maxi look too.

Post by: Reload Wife on March 23, 2012, 02:47:48 PM
RL, I love that you're experimenting!

I love the colors but I'm not sure if I like the shoe and belt combo....to me something is off about it? Maybe black is not the best color? Or maybe the belt is too wide? Let me study it some more. But I LOVE that skirt on you. You are slim that you can totally pull this off. If I tried to wear this skirt, I'd ridiculous! LOL

Also, I would have liked you to open your shirt up some more and put your necklace inside the shirt rather than over so you can expose the necklace on your skin (does that make sense).

But totally love what you're doing! This is great!

Who takes your photos for you? :)

I will try to post better photos of my daily wear but it's kind of challenging. I don't own a full length mirror at home. The only person who prob photograph me is my husband but gosh... how do I ask him? LOL!!!

Anemone, thank you for the recommend. I was thinking of a lighter belt but didn't have one that work with the skirt.  There is so much extra fabric on the skirt that a skinny belt didn't work well. It make me look frumpy so I reach for the wide belt.

As for the necklace, I'll did that next time =)

My husband is my photographer. He usually join me for lunch.

Yeah, I am 4' 10" and I love maxi dresses too... but gotta keep trying... materials makes a big difference... for me, it's brands... I can only wear certain brands...

But you're slim RL so you look really thin and tall.

I'm not slim so for sure I'll look funny. Trust me.  ;D

And how did you meet Jean? She seems really sweet! I think her styling is awesome and she looks really great in whatever she wears. I wish I can pull off skirts like her and look cute. Urgh. But I have short, white legs so it's a no-no for me. LOL!!!

Anemone... you are skinnier than me... but if you have big thighs, then high end brands will work better... I loved a pleated black one from the Limited... but it was $90...and a few weeks later went on sale, but I missed it.

Reload, I hope you don't mind. I took the liberty of your picture and tried to upgrade this outfit.  I tried to look for a top for that maxi skirt that would go with your body shape.  You're definitely on the skinny side, and it appears that you have a long torso with boxy shoulders, which is why you look good in belted outfits and with your shirts tucked in.  

So here are some choices that I thought would take that skirt up a notch or two. All of these tops are to make you look curvy because they have a defined waist.  And because your skirt is a solid color, I thought you could pair it up with a printed top that already has a cinched-in waist with other interesting details to make a nice flow with the skirt.  Again, personally, I'm trying to stay away from the solid-on-solid look, so that's why I'm not too keen on the outfit.

You have long dark hair, so it will give an illusion of height with the black from the background of this blouse.  There's a yellow trim that compliments the teal color of your skirt and brings more spring color to your palette, and then white polka dots to add visual interest to the top and to give you a fuller bust line.
(http://ak2.polyvoreimg.com/cgi/img-thing/mask/1/size/orig/tid/52781186.png)

Brown and teal is a great color combo - you see it in almost every designs from interior decorating to pillows to beddings to clothings.  I thought it would be a classic combo to pair it with this brown top.   The white/brown print shrug with the belt-in waist gives just a hint of sex appeal because it gives the illusions of curves.
(http://ak1.polyvoreimg.com/cgi/img-thing/mask/1/size/orig/tid/52788652.png)

If you want to keep it soft and toned down the way you have it styled originally, then I think this white top would do nicely! It has the cinched-in waist, with flouncy sleeves and a little visual focus around your neck.  It looks very romantic and feminine!
(http://ak1.polyvoreimg.com/cgi/img-thing/mask/1/size/orig/tid/47379371.png)

Then, lastly, I found this piece that has some analogues and complimentary colors to the teal skirt. You can see that the teal color is picked up in the shirt and makes the skirt and the blouse flow together.  The only thing I don't like are the sleeves and the lenght of the blouse.  The sleeves are too big and full.  And the lenght of the blouse is just an inch too long.  If I owned this piece, I would definitely bring up the hem on the blouse about an inch and alter the sleeves to be a little shorter and less full.
(http://ak1.polyvoreimg.com/cgi/img-thing/mask/1/size/orig/tid/38772677.png)

Well, that's all I could do today.  I don't know if you like the suggestions or even the prints, but let me know what you think of the concept -- the cinched in waist, a little attention-getting print that brings the focus up to the face, colors combo and curve appeal.

(Sorry, I did not have time to scope our some accessories, this was way more time-consuming than I thought it would!)

Thajyeeb,

I don't think those two last shirts would work... the top needs to be slim... b/c the skirt is flouncy...

I have tried shirts in the cut of the first one with flouncy skirts and for some reason, it just doesn't look right... maybe if tucked in...I do like the idea of black and white with teal though...
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?

Thajyeeb,
Thank you so much for the suggestions. I appreciate the time and effort you put into this. I like the first and second top.  I think that I pair the other tops with the skirt I will need up looking frumpy because their is too many extra fabric.  I didn't realize that I have a long torso. Thank you again for this information.

The skirt is flouncy from the sheer chiffon, but not full or volumnious.  And the these tops were suggested for Reload's body shape (long waist, slim and boxy shoulders), so it would give her a define waist and some curves on top.

To me, it looks like you have a short waist (as I am), so these would never look good on us because it will make us look even shorter.  The attention is focused at the waist, and we actualy want no attention there.  We want the attention to flow down our torso and right past the short waists.  So, no belts, no side pockets or zippers, no tucking in shirts or any other designs that brings the focus to our short waist.   Anyway, I never look good in belted items because it looks like I'm cut in two.

Those are my favorites too.  I only added the other because a) the white of the 3rd and b) the color coodination of the 4th piece.  And by that time, I was too tired of looking....  :2funny: :2funny:

And you're welcome. I hope I'm correct about your boxy shape.  Try on different variations of styles to see if you better in one fit than the other.  That's what I did...so I know I am a short waisted person...  :'(

Mrs. Vang, you are not old at all. I think you have a classy and chic fashion and you dress according to your age, which is good.  Ever see Mariah Carey dress in junior sizes??  It's hidous and embarassing.

Anyway, I like your style, but not the ones with the halter tops and the tank top.  If you have big busts and you want to maximize them, then I guess that is the way to go.  Wear something tight across the top to bring focus to the girls.   But if you want to minimize them and bring your attention to your face (and not have them stare at the two girls as some of us were doing hahahaha me included  :2funny:), then wear something with the neckline like the one with the pussy bows.  Plus, a big necklace with a v-neck top will also bring focus up and away from the girls.

Also, some of us can't sport pussy bows because it probably makes us feel old because we associate those images with schoolmarms and librians.  When I wear one, it makes me feel very mature and studious-looking, like I'm the class president or soemthing. LOL!

Okay, so I decided to play dress up today, too... but darn, it's very tiring!  LOL 

Just some of my usual work clothes.  I wear a lot of slacks and suits too, but I'm too tired to dress up now.  By the way, I forgot to change jewelries. :D

OK, so after posting a pix of a sexy work outfit in Calypso's thread yesterday, I have decided to wear a version of my own sexiness... something I am willing to wear that might be considered sexy work wear.

1.  Emmanuel Ungaro Lace Pencil Skirt
2.  Sears sequinned black tank (could not find a plain black shirt in my rush)
3.  Dana Buchman black leather moto jacket
4.  Born Knee-Hi heel boots

I can do sexy with an edge, but I can't do sexy sweet...

Shesaid,

That Dana Buchman was among the first few leather jackets that I bought and it was the SECOND one that I really really really like.  The first one is also by Dana Buchman - Lime green... but I don't think I have a pic of it.... well, I do a tiny bit... not the full look... let me go and grab it.  Both of these go with pretty much anything.

Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: LadyLionness on April 08, 2012, 11:32:22 PM
The thing I love about color blocking is that you can do it with separates... which you can use again in another season, with another trend... I probably won't buy any already made color blocking pieces b/c this is too strong of a trend and will be easily dated... I would use these as ideas for creating color blocking with things I have in my closet already or in adding a few more pieces that can be used by themselves season after season.
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?

Post by: go-go on April 09, 2012, 03:04:03 PM
Funny how I thought wearing bright color with another bright color was "clash-y" .  And on top of that, some colorblocking outfits I've seen reminded me of how "colorful" Hmongs dressed in the early days of coming to the US (MTT, fobby, etc).  Everyone was in different colors, probably mismatched from head to toe, in a group of 10+ walking to a store or somewhere....  :2funny:  And now it's a "trend" heheheheh

Seriously now, I do like some color blocking dress that are like optical illusions where they accentuate your curves or de-centuate them...and I like them simple, two color or something with a neutral color in it.

 Been busy so haven’t shared in a while but here’s Monday –

Pink t-shirt
Black ankle pants
Navy blue blazer
Mint green & pink strand necklaces
Black open toe heels

Here’s a really bad photo I quickly took in the work bathroom this morning. I still need practice on taking self-portrait in the mirror. I didn’t have time to play with the camera settings so I just set it on auto, I tried flash but it came out horrible as well. Anyhow, you get the picture.

In person, the pink and navy combo looks nice. Maybe I’ll try another picture later.

RL, love that skirt! My goal this summer is to wear more skirts. I used to wear skirts quite a bit and have so many (like 40+ in my closet!). But after I had my baby, I put on some weight so I haven't worn them much. Now I just need to tan my legs so I can start wearing skirts again. LOL

BTW, I love the AT Perfect Pump! It's on my want-list.

I love my AT Perfect Pump.  I have two pairs and bought them on sale otherwise they pricey.

I'm going to my skirts and dresss phrase. I found that skirt and dresses are more flattering on me than pant .

So please, let’s share pictures! :)

I love browsing NY & Co for blouses.

Technically, I was out of the office today for training so it was a very, very casual day for me. Quick shot:

Piperlime cardigan, brown (This is one of my favorite cardigans. It's so soft and comfy.)
VS bootcut jeans
Gap long sleeve tee, black
Alfani boots, black

I need to start accessorizing more. The only jewelry I wear is a gold necklace.

Forever 21 is a store I would mainly get tops and blazers there but since I don't work so no tops but blazers to pull it off with jeans or slack/pant is what I usually get to wear year round.

Anemone, thank you for the recommend. I was thinking of a lighter belt but didn't have one that work with the skirt.  There is so much extra fabric on the skirt that a skinny belt didn't work well. It make me look frumpy so I reach for the wide belt.

As for the necklace, I'll did that next time =)

My husband is my photographer. He usually join me for lunch.

Good thing your husband don't mind snapping photo of you when asked......... . My husband would give me weird looks but my little ones can never go wrong and love playing with my camera here and there.  I couldn't find my camera for almost 2 weeks and on the day I told my kids whoever find it will get $20 and only to end up having my 5 yo. son finding and still asking me for his money these day.

All your outfits are great.  For me to be dressing like that I must work otherwise I don't want to have a closet full of clothes for no reason but I might start shopping a little here and there vs. grabbing something out of my daughter closet.

Just found this thread.. Wow.. Nice.. thanks for sharing..  O0

Ed,

I hope you will contribute too... farmer overalls are so sexy... lolz...

Asia:  I love leather jackets... I hope to photograph them all... hehehehe... very recently, I had to reassess my love of leather... could not figure out why I love it so much, especially now that I am growing older and am supposed to dress more like an old lady... lolz... then I saw pix of me as a teenager... as young as 12 and 13... wearing leather and lace... and realized that I have had a long long long love affair with leather... and that I will probably be buried wearing leather... and lace... lolz!

I heard you ladies talk a lot about Forever 21 and H&M... so I tried some things on over the weekend... I really don't care for the fit and material... they make me look fat and short... lolz.

I do love Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor Loft... especially their cardigans and jeans... and blazers... they are the perfect length for my short torso.

I like New York and Co for their button down shirts... but over that phase... I am into plain V-Necks ands graphic T-shirts...


Blazers and jackets, I still prefer quality...  I don't like the materials and fit of forever 21 or H&M... they don't nip in my body like Ellen Tracy, Ralph Lauren, Tahari, Ann Taylor, Michael Kors, Tommy Hifiger, and Anne Klein...

Forever 21 and H&M are only for cheap buy if you don't mind for the material.  Maybe, I'll played dress up this weekend and snap some photo since I'm already back to my old self/size after 1 week or more like I never have to work out to get back in shape after my pregnancy.  Maybe I'll get some picture of my daughter up because she can pull of scarf, cardigan, etc.

Alright Ladies! I'm sharing today....proba bly the only day that I will dress up because we have VIPs coming this morning....
otherwise, I'd be in some comfy capri and sandals.  :D

I wanted to wear something with spring colors, so I knew I wanted to wear the yellow pencil skirt, but didn't really have anything to go with it except black and I didn't want to do the typical black/yellow color combo.  So I thought of this purple top and it was just right since they are complimentary colors.  And then to go with the purple top, I didn't want to resort to the usual black (again), so I pulled out these muted red pumps that I got from Marshalls. 

I don't think I look toooooo colorful...... ...right??

Anyway, now that I'm at the office, I feel too overdressed because the 2 VIPs that came dressed in khakis and polos.   :2funny: :2funny:

I'm wearing an orange top with striped black dress pants. Ugh, I've gained too much weight it's embarrassing posting my photo's up.

LMFAO that's what I did today too. Not posting mine up either, lol. My tank top is kinda tight, so my muffin tops are showing, even though I'm wearing a cardigan on top. haha.

I'll just describe my outfit too then.  ;D

White cardigan (GAP), tank top with tan, coral, blue, and magenta designs from Banana republic, dark blue denim jeans (The Limited) and tan open toe flats (Target?).

uh, no.  I hate stockings!  I think what's throwing off this look is the difference in cotton grade.  I don't know the correct terms, but the top is too plain and too casual while the skirt is too dressy.  That's what I'm thinking.  If I had a different purple top made from finer cotton blends, that might make the outfit look more cohesive.

DC and Asdfghkj -- you guys better stop it!!! I'm not in perfect shape either.   :2funny:  Underneath these clothes, there are lumps and bumps!!  :2funny: :2funny:

Those of you that are afraid to post up photos because of your body – ummm, hello… look at me! I am far from having a nice body but I also know that I am not the only one who has body issues and we as women, ALL struggle with body consciousness and self-image.

For example, that photo I just posted. It took a lot of balls for me to post this one up. I took this this morning and it was the only shot I got because people started coming into the bathroom and well, geesh… I was standing there in the mirror with a phone! LOL…

My plan was to go back and take a more flattering shot and maybe suck in my tummy. That's why it took me so long to post my daily wear today, cause I wanted a better/flattering picture of myself for ya'll! But after I saw the postings here with some of you not wanting to share pictures. I thought…oh screw that, let all of PH see the real me, frumpy and all. LOL!!!  :2funny:

You can see my tummy sticking out and I’m sure the looseness of the shirt didn’t help either because it made my tummy look even bigger than is. Plus, I hate my wrist/arms…it’s short and stubby. And I can go on and on…. I'm sure to some, my photo looks fine - but to me, I know it's there!

My point is....we all have issues.


HOORAH!!!

Yep, I have lots of issues with my body too and I wasn't going to post mine up at all, but I thought, what the heck! I might not put on a skirt again for another month or two.... :2funny:  I have flabby arms and fat legs, and my kid took my picture giving me weird looks and said "you're not going to post this up, are you, mom?!"  ;D Like it was hideous or uncool.  And look, my boobs are going down south and they ain't coming back up!!!!   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:  I wanted her to take another picture from another angle to make them look perkier or stand differently so that my fat legs don't look so fat....but no such luck! She ran out of the room already  LOL

Lavender and Asia, nice.  :) Thanks for sharing.
I love browsing NY & Co for blouses.
Technically, I was out of the office today for training so it was a very, very casual day for me. Quick shot:
Piperlime cardigan, brown (This is one of my favorite cardigans. It's so soft and comfy.)
VS bootcut jeans
Gap long sleeve tee, black
Alfani boots, black
I need to start accessorizing more. The only jewelry I wear is a gold necklace.
 
I have the same issue I need to learn how to accessorize.  I love your outfit it simple, comfortable and cute.

Anemone inspires me to get accessories. I enjoy wearing accessories ....it's a different feel.
Reload Wife, I like your classic style.  I don't have the body to wear that classic sytle.  Then sometimes I think thin people look good in just about anything.  :)   O0
Thanks Lavender.  I truly believe that anyone can wear the classic style. I have a former supervisor who was on the heavy side and her outfits were very polish and professional.  The classic style looks great on her.  Just because I’m skinny doesn’t mean that I will look good in just about anything. I try to find the clothes that work well with my body type. I have misses and hit outfit too.

Brown and lime green.
Pant from Express
Tops:  I think from JCPenny
Accessories: Forever21

I like this outfit. I think it will look better if the top is tucked in.

Thajyeeb – Thank you for contributing. I love the color combination. I believe it better to be overdress than under.  There is a saying that says that “you should dress for the job you want and not the one you have”.

DC & asdfghjhl- Don’t think that way. I’m sure you look find.
Anemone –OMG you got the pant for $4. I wish I was that lucky.   The red top looks god with your outfit.

I agreed with Anemone. I may be skinny but I do not have a perfect body. I carry most of my weight on on my thighs and  stomach. I try to wear clothes that hides my stomach fats. Additional I have really skinny arms.  We all have issues.

I used to be scare of wearing bright colors.  Recently I have been adding more bright color to my wardrobe. I don't mind wearing bright color to work but I will not wear them out in the Hmong Community.

Hmong tend to NOT understand style and to exaggerate things... which is why I don't wear red lipstick to Hmong functions...

However, why can't you wear that outfit in the Hmong community?  I looks great!

Reload Wife, I used to not wear bright colors too but black/gray/navy got boring so I've been incorporating brights into my wardrobe slowly. I usually just go with a brightly patterned tank top under a solid colored cardigan.

or i wear bright nail polish, as you can see in my picture above  ;D

asdfghjkl and RW,
Thanks for sharing.  I'm not really into floral print and most of my clothes are solid but I think I'd like to sport some smaller print floral.  I'm not a dress person too. Only have about two evening dresses and two summer dresses in my closet and they've never been worn. hahaha... Probably will wear the summer dresses when I head out to CA next week.  will post photos when I returned.

tomorrow is casual friday so jean and T-shirt! O0

Be sure to take lot of photos to share with us.

Your job seems pretty busy so it wouldn't be practical to show up in a suit. hehe But it always pays to look professional. That's why i don't go all out casual like some of my coworkers (hoodies? srsly? tennis shoes??) i want to look like i made an effort.  :D

Asdfg, you posted! Yeah. See that wasn’t so bad. And I don’t know what you were so afraid of, you look fine! I like the colors of that top! I need to get more printed tops like that.

RW, oohhh… I like the classic dress/cardigan pairing here. It looks great! I think you topped it off nicely with a touch of that necklace. And I like the colors! You pull this off beautifully so don’t be afraid to wear colors like this out and about!


Thanks. I love wearing colors to work. The brights colors make the gloomy day more cheerful. However I don't wear bright colors when I attend a Hmong Community event because I will end up sticking out like a sore thumb.

No accessories at all. I'm allergic to nickel or whatever it is so I never wear accessories.  :'(

Alright... my style... no matter what I am wearing... I always try to put in an element of elegance into it... which is why I can't shop from stores like Forever 21 and H&M... the clothes look the same... but they lack that touch of elegance.  I always try to include ONE classic piece as well... or at least one expensive piece... last but not least... I have learn to re-incorporate a dark edge back into my wardrobe... b/c straight classic and elegance tend to age me and is boring... so I always thry to throw an edge in to make it more interesting.

Classic Elegance with an Edge

So, do you ladies agree or disagree?

Interesting.   ;D

Have to have balance.  Not very often is it an "all out balck suit/red tie" thing.   ;)

Like I've alluded to many times before...a simple tee, a sportcoat, loose denim - heck even with leather flip flops on. 

I agree... that is very nice.

quite honestly, I don't spend much time shopping for myself cause I rarely fit into clothes since I gained weight. lol  Now shoes is a different story. I'm starting to buy shoes once a month now since I love shoes. eheheh

Shoes, I only buy what I need... to create a certain style or go with certain clothes... of course, that is still 20 to 30 paris... but for the most part... I don't have too many shoes.  It's jackets and blazers that I want to buy everything I see...

For some reason I love shoes and buy it quite often. I dont spend a lot of money but I have to have it. I've been pretty good for the last year but just recently I've started an impulse buy again.

For the last month I bought 3 new shoes. Well one is my flat shoes. One of my flat shoes magically disappeared so I needed another one. Then when I went to get a new flat shoes, it was too tight so I returned it for a bigger size and found a nine west wedge. They didn't have my size so I went and ordered it online. Then I bought another pair of nude heels from target. LOL

I'm all about accessories and I have tons!

Since I'm home today, I'll post a picture of my accessories. Let me go clean up my jewelry chest first. LOL ;D
I start to purchase accessories after seeing your pictures.  They add a nice touch to the outfit. 

I don't have good taste in them....I mostly opt for black and white necklaces.  I think pearl necklaces look nice in every outfit.  It's my favorite.  :)

I also like silver...they look nice as well especially with black.

I agree with the edge part because you do a lot of the leather trenches, and I always associate long trenches as very edgy. LOL

I also think you try to stay youthful - or at least that's what I get out of it. You dress mature but with all the colors you experiment with, you want to put a little youth in it to blend it up, instead of say always wearing black or gray.

On the youthful part.. I try not to dress too young... b/c that will age you faster than anything else... lolz... but you are right in that I do like a more youthful look to my clothes... and I can usually add that in with edgy pieces... in a way, I want to build a ageless wardrobe... something people in their 20's could wear... something I could wear now in my 30's... and that I could still wear when I am in my 40's in the next few years... dayem... I ma getting old... lolz...

As for colors... I used to have a black/ grey/ and just very dark neutral colors... but they get boring fast... I guess I have a bit of an artist in me and bright colors tend to cheer me up... so I do colors where it will compliment my body and not take away from it or augment it.

 :2funny: I just can't keep up with you ladies!

Anyway, to answer LL's question, I am not classy, or trendy even though I love to look at fashion magazines and read fashion blogs.  I guess I'm a minimalist - I tend to buy clothes that won't go out of style by next year, so I look for classic staples and in classic colors so that I do a lot of mix-n-match.  I do have some trendy pieces, but very few. And I find that the trendy pieces that I do have, I usually end up not wearing them after a few months and they get thrown in the backburner.  Like Asia, I also don't accessorized with jewelries and such because they simply get in my way!  :2funny:   I'm always on the phone, or running about, so I can't have earrings that will interfer with the phone, or dangling earrings that gets caught or makes noises.  I can't stand bangles that moves up and down my arm whenever I move.  And I walk fast, so I don't like a long piece of necklace flapping about my chest as I walk.  *sigh* I know, I have so many pecularities.  I need my clothes to be clean, efficient and almost tailored because I dont like bunching up my sleeves or the pant legs. I don't usually add any statement pieces unless it's a special occassion that calls for it - like going to a brunch with some girls that will go all out, or going to a wedding, etc.  And when going out with a bunch of girls, we do get all sexied-up, but I don't usually skank it up (like DC said LOL!) I always have a sense of modesty around me because you never know who you're going to meet at these places!

Post by: LadyLionness on April 27, 2012, 12:41:59 PM
LL, back to your question... I would describe my style as simple, classic, and maybe preppy.

I've always been into clothes. My mom said when I was a kid, I'd change like 20x a day. When I was younger my style was definitely preppy. I grew up in a mainly white town so I am sure that influenced it. I was voted Best Dressed when I graduated high school.

College wasn't too different - I shopped mainly stores like Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Gap. Looking back, when I was in my 20s I think I was dressing too old for my age though. Now that I'm in my 30s, I feel like I'm dressing younger than I was when I was 20-something.  ;D

I'm not fashionable or trendy though and I don't intend to be either. I like to be comfortable but still look nice.

I am with you on the trendy stuff... and I do value comfort above all else.  When I was married to my ex... he picked all my clothes ... 4 sets every 6 months with one pair of 1 inch heel pump... and in my 20's... he had me dressed like the 50 year old hmong church ladies... hehehe...

So, it took me a long time to recapture my style... and looking back... I am veering back towards leather and lace again... I have always been unique in my clothing.... I would buy something ordinary and alter it to suit my own taste and to make it different.

As for jewelry, I don't have too many pieces (in my opinion... lolz... I think my husband will beg to differ)... but I only buy real pieces... such as 14K gold or silver pieces... I don't even like to buy lab created jewels...

In the last year or two, I have started buying some cheap jewelry... but I hardly wear them... I just go back to my gold and silver pieces...

I use my blazers and jackets as accessories... can't y'all tell?  lolz... that and scarves...

DC,

Please allow us to see the whole shirt girl.  

Your shirt is pretty.  :)  Where did you get it?  

The shirt is from Express. No wonder I didn't remember cause I "rarely" shop at express. I usually don't fit the clothes but this top is stretchy so it fits. I bought this in 2011 so it might not be at the store anymore.

no they are not prom-ish dresses, I'm talking about cocktail dresses and evening wear types of dresses.  I will pair them with other pieces like you said, but that's to church and to some gatherings, etc, but what I meant was that I don't wear the same evening dress to another special evening occassion where we'll take tons of pictures because I don't want all my pictures from different events (maybe even from different years) to show me in the same dress!  makes sense?

 :D

So, ladies:  Thajyeeb, Reload's Wife, asdfjkl, Lavender, Asia, DC, and Anemone... how would you describe your style?

HPA:  You too, how would you describe your style?

I feel so behind.  I haven’t given much thought to my style. I am drawn to clothes that are feminine, classic and girly.  I love floral, lace and ruffles. I tried to dress accordingly to my age. Can you guess my age based on how I dress?
Though I do have shops that I always visit I don’t limited myself to only those stores.  I have found good clothes from Forever 21, H&M, Ross, Marshall ect.
I read lot of fashion blog and magazines but I'm not fashionable or trendy.  
If you would have met you 10 yrs you probably won’t recognize me today. My style evolved so much.
I like Bruce Lee philosophy of” The Style of No Style”. I know it has nothing to do with fashion but I like the idea behind. I don’t want to restrict myself to one style or trend. I like to find thing from each style, trend and Incorporate  them into my wardrobe .

I also have some jewelry that belonged to my grandmother that she gave me right before she passed away last year.  :'( And I just put my daughter's small necklaces here because they are tiny so don't want to lose them.

Nice collection.  I don't even have such thing at all.  I only have my diamond stud earring.  Not much of a jewerly person at all.  I also don't like to go through my daughter stuffs for anything.  I don't even have a single skirt or dress in my closet or even a black simple dress.  My church day are over so you would not see me in anything at all beside dress/slack pant with top.  I got rid of most blouses/tops in my closet over the year since I don't work and it just taking up space.

I'll see if I can snap my daughter collections later.

Kelly green as your leather jacket?  You can pull it off.......... I don't dress up so I don't know which color look best on me but simple color that can't go wrong that I have around when necessary to dress up are basically just brown, grey and black.  Only active wear would I have color from pink, purple, green, etc. but they are more on the side of not being bright bright but more of the darker tone color.

Dress to church:
Dress, Hmong design from Hmong Village store in MN.  $75  :-\
Top, black blazer from Forever21
Dark purple shoes from K-Mart.  I don't have a purple dress to go with the shoes but they are very comfortable.  So I bought them and wore them since the dress has purple design. 
Ankle bracelet from Wal-Mart.  I love ankle bracelet when wearing skirt or short pants.
Pearl necklace and earrings from Wal-Mart. 

Lol....I'm cheap like China.  ;D

Nice I see a lot of ladies these day are wearing a little of those Hmong fashion skirt or 2 piece set to church.  Along with those fashion purse too.  I find those purse are way too expensive when it got my sisters and I attention at a Hmong store once.

Love that outfit... hmmm... blazer wise...  for us ladies that have kids already, I find that Forever 21 and H&M's blazers simply don't do enough to nip in our shape... no sure how much your blazers cost... but the Limited blazers on sales for about $50 is not bad... and once you have determined your sizes in each brand... ebay is the best place to get nice designer blazers that do more our post baby bodies...

In regards to jackets... I like what she says here... so when I order jackets and blazers online, I made sure that the length of the jacket from bottom of collar, down the centerline to the bottom of the jacket is no more than 22 inches... It hits me perfectly at hip level like the picture on the left... and it's very flattering...

How low is "too low", and how high is "too high" when it comes to ladies and skirts.  Mid thigh?  3/4 thigh?   ???

 :D


2 inches above the knees is still consider decent.  Above that and it's not decent...
 
In the Hmong culture... I have gotten ding for wearing suits AT the bottom of my knees... lolz!

If you and your wife to be want to be respected and be viewed as two professional people who knows what they are doing... that dress is a little too short.  Yes, lots of Hmong ladies now wear skirts/ dresses that short to Hmong functions, but those women don't really care how they are viewed...
Watch the cleavage as well... and my husband tells me not to expose my shoulders... even with cap sleeve dresses, he tells me to wear a blazer or cardigan on top...

Dang.   :P

She has the attire needed, but sometimes it wouldn't hurt to push the envelope a bit, right?

Or not?   ???

Again, same as making a speech... gotta know who your audience is... and who you want to engage... I think there are more opportunities to glam up than not... if lots of Elders are going to be around, cater more towards them.  They don't know much about sexy or not... so she could wear something that skims the body, but at knee level...

I've never heard of a strapless dress being referred to as a shoulderless dress  :2funny:    I don't think Hmong people are THAT behind that wearing a strapless dress (or should I say shoulderless dress) is considered TOO extreme. As a matter of fact, some of the new modern Hmong clothing are strapless.

Everyone looks so fashionable! I'm afraid to show my pics now. I'm not that fashionable because I don't shop as much as some of you.  I usually reserve my budget to get fashionable clothes for the kids instead of myself. 
 
HPA, where do you do most of your shopping? Do you do online shopping much and do have much success with online shopping (for clothes)?  Also, all of your clothes seem to fit exceptionally well, do you have a tailor?  I can't imagine most stores would have your clothing size off the rack. I've revamped my husband wardrobe since he got promoted back in January and I've done all the local stores and department stores.  Where else should I be looking?  I'm also thinking of going to a local tailoring shop becuase I dont have time to tailor his clothes anymore, plus, I'm not too good!  Can you give any suggestions?  And shoes ------- I gotta get him off these grandpa looking shoes!  Damn stubborn man.  Thanks.

I basically wear the same thing too.  I mean, what you see above is what I typically wear on a daily basis to work.  A tshirt, a cardigan and capri with either flats or sandals.  I don't think that is being "fashionable" like you ladies who dressed up every day.  I think this workplace has made me very lazy and I like it!  :2funny:   But on the downside, I don't have a very trendy or fashionable wardrobe either. Just basic stuffs.

No. I don't usually wear blazers to work because it's just too much for the office (if you know what I mean).  My crummy co-workers will be giving me weird looks.  Also, it's too damn hot to wear a blazer all day long.  I save the dressier stuff for other functions.

Yep... I know exactly what you mean... hehehe... my work place is very casual too... that's why I wear my leather jackets and denim jackets more b/c they are more casual... I wear cardigans every once in a long while... but you ladies make me want to wear mine... hehehe...

I can't imagine wearing my leather jacket all day long in this heat. The cardigan has a 3/4 sleeve that is long enough to cover the chill in the morning, and then I can take it off when the sun is shining into my office in the afternoon.  This office is very casual to the point of being scruffy.  I'm not kidding....we're a bunch of hooligans!   :2funny:
 
Thanks, Reload Wife and Peachy! I don't know if this is a hot pink or a hot coral color.  I tend to think of it as hot coral. lol

Well, I do have a tailor touch up on the clothing.  Often enough, most men's clothiers will tailor to fit, even if it's off the rack.  I think a crisp, form fitting look is ideal, yet also functional, without breaks and obvious creases.  Smaller details are vital and would certainly add flavor.

Shoes, stay within budget but you find great footwear for awesome prices.  A guy should have his "everyday" suits, as well as those that hardly gets touched unless special occasions call for it.

Just my thought.
Ok, thanks.  I threw away all his old ill-fitting clothes and we got new, form fitting ones, with good design details and in colors that are more suited for him.  He does look much more put together and more polished.   I've just started looking into men's fashion blog and it's just as exciting to look at than women's fashion.
 
Still working on the shoes though... and have to get him fitted for more suits.

I would but I'm too chunky to show off a full look. Bits and pieces should suffice.

I bought the Loft top 2 weeks ago. It's actually my first time shoppin at Loft. Boy it was Expensive! I'm use to a top that is $30 but luckily it was BOGO so it came to around $75 for two tops.

Yes, Loft and Limited are expensive... but I like their clothes... and like Anemone... I don't ever buy anything full price... I always always wait for sales or only shop the clearance section... I don't buy trendy pieces... so it doesn't bother me if it is a bit out of style...
 
Shirt-wise... I don't think I have spend more than $15 per shirt...
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: DeceiversChick on May 02, 2012, 03:17:30 PM
Oh I love Loft! And yes, it can get pricey....heck, even I don't buy full price items. I am very frugal so I only buy it when it goes on clearance or if they have 40% off sales going on. Even $30 is a lot for me for a top, I would have to think about it.  ;D

Loft always has sales or discount days so I've learned my lesson to never buy anything full priced.

I think this thread is inspiring some to step outside their comfort zone and start exploring other stores. Like the other day when I was at Loft, I saw a Hmong woman come in (with her husband and kids) and it definitely looked like it was her first time there. She looked around and then left quickly after I saw her looking at the price tags of a couple tops. I was thinking to myself, "I wonder if she's a PHer? And she was inspired by the fashion thread".  ;D

You know I never thought of shopping in LOFT cause I always thought it was Poj Laus clothing. Little did I know I found a more mature attire to fit my age. The only reason why I went into Loft cause I have 1 top from Loft that I found at the Thrift Store and loved it. So then I decided to go there 2 weeks ago on my moa trip.

This thread is inspiring to me cause I'm finding clothes that are more appropriate for me. I feel like I'm still dressing like I'm in my early 20's. It's not a bad thing but I want to feel more mature, classy, and sophisticated. ehehehe

I bought the shirts full price (exception of bogo) since I needed some new spring tops so I didn't mind the price. Lesson learn so from now on I'm buying it when it's on sale.

I'm wearing the wedge today and my darn feet hurts! Ugh, it's expected since they are new and it's not broken into. You should check DSW. They have a ton of spring shoes in and wedges are very in right now. I'm tempted to get another pair but I'm holding off for now. eheheheh

Here's my second Loft Top. It's a Dark Navy Blue see through top with a white bottom attachment. I'm really into these light and see through top phase since it's spring. Plus it's a flowy shirt so it's not clingy to my rolls. lol

I took these photo's yesterday morning thinking I would wear it to work but didn't. I tried on the gold necklace and it didn't match so I took it off and wore it today instead.

This will give you ladies an idea of my style now. Simple and Springy - If that's even a style. lol

Lav, I like that printed dress. I like that you paired it with a blazer.

Asdfg, finally a body shot! Lol... I like the LC jeans. And the printed top!
That dress is 10 years old.  ;D
I just learned to coordinate it with the black blazer a couple weeks ago when my friend visited. 

In the past, I had white tops on.  :)  Not sure if white looks better or the black.  But I love the black blazer over it.

Post by: LadyLionness on May 03, 2012, 09:39:34 AM
Lav, with a busy print, black works better at "containing" the look... creating a frame.  White with busy print gives the illusion of continuously expanding... unless you are extremely slim and trim.

When I am in a good shape again, I would love to dress sophisticated and elegant, yet simple like you...but I am concerned about the the price tag. I have never really spent that much on clothes. Seems like the clothes you wear are mostly brand name. And, do you go shopping often for maintain your wardrobe?

I think I bought that particular tank top because it was dirt cheap. Probably $7 or under. But it's too flowy by itself (maybe I'll wear it again when I'm pregnant and super big, lol) so I had to belt it.

I have to practice taking mirror pictures. hahaha.

I try not to spend too much on clothes. I have a budget of $100 per month for clothes. I usually buy my clothes during sales. I love Ann Taylor and Loft additional 40% off sale. The only bad thing about waiting for sale is that most of the times the items I like are sold out in my size.  The Banana Factory dress here was on sale for $25. The shoes were $29 and the necklace from Forever was $9.80.

Reload Wife, I love your outfits.

---

Thanks LL. For most of the time, I lean towards the classic look for office wear. Although, I'm quite a big gal, I still like to wear fitting clothes.  ;D

This is what I wore to my interview. I decided not to wear my black suit jacket on top. I hope this wasn't too much, and hopefully, I got the position. 

Outfit
Vest: Maurices
Button up shirt: NY&Co
Skirt: Grace Elements
Shoes: Adagio
Pearl Earrings: Target
Watch: SmartHealth

Great outfit for the job interview. Good luck.

I try not to spend too much on clothes. I have a budget of $100 per month for clothes. I usually buy my clothes during sales. I love Ann Taylor and Loft additional 40% off sale. The only bad thing about waiting for sale is that most of the times the items I like are sold out in my size.  The Banana Factory dress here was on sale for $25. The shoes were $29 and the necklace from Forever was $9.80.

Back in the days when I was dressing up for work, I had a budget too.  But, I've quit doing that a few years ago when I got this job.  Now, I budget for skincare and makeup and put clothes in the backburner. After seeing and listening to you guys talk about your offices and saw what you ladies wore in this thread, I took a good, long look at my closet.  I basically have old stuffs from years ago (dresses are a different category).  Yes, I can mix and match to make outfits for work, but nothing really new and nothing really eye-catching.  And it's very limiting as to what I can do with what I have.  I can't believe that I've gotten into such a rut.  I still love the capri and flip flop look but I think I'll start to set aside a budget for clothes again. Today is the beginning of that .....as I just went to JCP during lunch and bought some stuff!   :2funny:    And I will attempt (note the italic!) to dress up at least 2 or 3 days out of the week.  This thread is inspiring me to do that.

So busy today at work but gotta make some quick time for PH!  ;D

Here's my outfit today - pretty casual.

Black/white butterfly print tshirt - F21
Black ankle pants - Talbots
Turquoise blazer - Lauren Conrad for Kohls (looks so washed out here but it's actually a nice blue/green)
Black open toe heels - Aldo
Silver bracelet - F21
Oversized ring - H&M

I wore a scarf with today's outfit but I took it off briefly and went to take a picture and forgot to put it on. Oh well, the outfit looks cuter with the scarf on, so it's not so plain. LOL

TY, I'm with you. I feel that for the last few years I'm in a rut as well.

However I think this year I'm realizing I need to dress up a little bit to make myself look more appealing. Well this is only for work but once i'm home im in PJ's and hair is tied up. LOL

I can't see myself all glammed up going to the store or gettin gas. It's not me.

Ok Ladies, I'll go home today and post up a top that looks like a dress ( don't know what it is called lol) I have that I LOVE. I want to find a way to wear it to work without overdressing. My workplace is Business Casual but I feel the top is too much. Every morning I wake up and look at the top but can't seem to find a way to incorporate it into my work wardrobe. I've only worn the top out clubbing with black skinny jeans and heels. I don't feel comfortable wearing it to work since it has a small slit to the shoulder and with black skinny jeans. Who knows it may just be appropriate for clubbing or a girls night out.  :2funny:

I'm thinking I might hem it so it's shorter but unsure. I'll need your advice once i post it up later.

It's called a Tunic and you should try it with sharp black dress pants... and high heel boots.

RW, looking good last night with your cocktail dress! So classic and simple. I think I have like 5-6 dresses like that just because they are so good to have around. But since I've had my baby, I haven't been able to fit into them. LOL! Love the play up of the necklace and shoes!  O0

I don't shop much for clothes at Francesca but I love their accessories! The clothes are cute but they are still kinda pricey for me. I always look for their little corner of sales/clearance but whatever is left is sooo big in size or too tiny! I like how you wore the dress as a top though! I don't think I can ever pull that off because the 'excess' material will be too bunched up for me since I already have enough going at the waistline. LOL

Peachy, hope you got the job! You look very polished!

I can't get enough sheath dress. I love how they are so versatile. You can wear them to work or dress them with accessories for a night out or event.

I love Francesca's but will have to agree that it pretty pricey. The dress is the only one I have from Francesca's.

And what are you talking about waist line. You looks fine. It's not hard to wearing a dress as a top.  The key thing to remember is that you wear should a longer skirt over the dress.  You can pretty much wear almost any dress as a top.

I can't do that whole 'wear a dress as a top' thing either.  Too much material at the waist.  I think skinny folks with no potbelly are the only ones who can pull them off.

How come no one told me the Forever21in Fresno is this humongous?  OMG, I was going nutz in there;excited, yet frustrated due to the size of the place and so many selections, so many things I wanted but anxious because I was afraid I wasn't going to have enough time to shop.

I have not been to a Forever21 for the longest time and when I walked into this one, I was amazed at all their clothes. Loved the designs, prints, materials, color and prices! I was hesitant to buy because why would I buy here while I can buy at home where there's no taxes but the Forever21 at home isn't as big and probably don't have as much and maybe not as trendy/up to date yet.

Bought all these at the Forever21 in Fresno.   Spent $148 (taxes included)

My sister has a mannequin... ;D  My favorite piece is the bomber leather jacket (my first leather ever).  It fits so perfectly, feels so comfy and looks good with anything!




Asia - Great haul. They just recently open a two story Forever 21 store here. I I feel like that as I get older I shop at Forever21 less and less.  I guess it doesn't help that my little girl tell me that I should shop at Forever21 because I'm not 21 yrs.  :2funny:. I love their cheap accessories.

The lace dress is worn over the nude blouse and the skirt is worn over the lace dress.  You can pull this off. The key is that each separate piece of clothes is light and thin with the exception of the skirt.

Nice haul!
I've mentioned once or twice that the F21 in Fresno is freakin' huge, but then, when no one said anything, I thought perhaps it was just me.  Our store is tiny in comparison to the one in Fresno.  But I thought you're from the Midwest...so you must out here visiting....
Is that leather jacket really leather?  I like the cut of the jacket, but the leather looks wrinkly and thin.   But I can see if you're a younger age, you would totally go for it... it's cute and comfy and looks almost hobo-ish (the color) yet has a stylish cut to it.  I'm old, so I would've just wrinkled my nose at it and walked away from it.   ;D

Asia,
Love your leather jacket and the color!  I have been looking for that color... no success yet... but probably not gonna look for it anymore as I have a gold leather jacket that is close enough... looking forward to seeing your outfits with  the leather jacket.

Thajyeeb... I like your outfits... the only thing is that with the prints... it seems to expand and make you appear top heavy... which I don't think you are.  I think all you need is some jackets to nip you in... if blazer will be too formal for work... there are lots of jean blazers out there that will work also... and denim vest.  I know you like cardigans, but they are not very good at nipping you in at the waist. 
Like you said, you and I have shorter torsos, so probably a jacket that is no longer than 22 inches (measured from bottom of collar, down center line, to the bottom of the jacket)... and nip in the waist like my Teri Jon jacket that I wore with the flag shirt.

Thank you, I must say I enjoy checking out different styles from all the ladies who shared their outfits in here weekly. It's always nice for the ladies to always look good going out and even when she is being a mom and a wife at home. I have always like for my mamasita to look good and upkeep with herself.
 
Thanks again Ladies  :) Much appreciated
 
Sweet Tears, where are your outfits?

That's a great dress for a great price. I never had much luck with Burlington.

I wore this today: (don't have picture of myself)
don't have picture of the cardigan. But it's gray and white with a cut way in the back and entailed sides, it also have a cute bow in the mid back. BCBG. It didn't take away from my plain romper, also BCBG.

wore it with this wedge sandal: (http://aff.ysi.bz/assets/75/174/l_p0013317475.jpg)

I also wore it with a fedora jane hat. Its probably too much, but my face and arms can't take the sun.  ;D

I love the romper, shampoo!!

Happy Monday!

Cream lace top - H&M
Black/white cardigan - Loft
Black ankle pants - Talbots
Black heels - Aldo
Pink necklace - F21

I want that lace top in cream so badly the first I saw it but unfortunately they run out my size. So I got the navy one instead.

Thajyeeb... I like your outfits... the only thing is that with the prints... it seems to expand and make you appear top heavy... which I don't think you are.  I think all you need is some jackets to nip you in... if blazer will be too formal for work... there are lots of jean blazers out there that will work also... and denim vest.  I know you like cardigans, but they are not very good at nipping you in at the waist. 
Like you said, you and I have shorter torsos, so probably a jacket that is no longer than 22 inches (measured from bottom of collar, down center line, to the bottom of the jacket)... and nip in the waist like my Teri Jon jacket that I wore with the flag shirt.

So, you're saying all these prints make me look fat because they expand my top half??   :'(  I don't know, I don't think they make me top heavy.  I agree that maybe they are not nipped at the waist, so that hour-glass image is not visible in the picture, but I don't think it makes me appear wider or bigger at the top.    I don't usually put emphasis on my waist because I don't exactly have a small waist like some of you.  I carry my fat on my stomach  and I tend to wear clothes that will hide the lumps and bumps.  The last picture posted (with the black/yellow top) should appear boxy and that is because I tucked it so that it would appear boxy, thus aligning with the pants to give me that straight look. 
 
Jackets are not ideal for this climate.   I'm wearing a cropped jacket now, but even that will eventually come off in the afternoon.

So going back to look at Thajyeebs outfit, I dont think it made you top heavy, I think the print is fine.

I probably would suggest a belt to break up the point from where the top ends and where the pants begins, so it doesnt look continuous I hope that made sense. I dont have a small waistline or a flat stomach either so I tend to wear my tops over my belt line, but when I do tuck in my shirts, I notice that even with a not-so-flat-tummy, if I wear a beltit helps make me looks like I have longer legs.

I think having a blazer/jacket on wouldnt necessary work for this outfit. Her pants are very loose and I think wearing more layers will just make her look like shes swimming in her clothes.
I agreed with Anemone. The print is fine. You should try a belt to clinch the waist line to create the illusion of a small waist.  I maybe skinny but I don't have a small waist and not-so-flat tummy either.

Yes I thought about a belt, but didn't wear one at the time. I usually don't like belts because they make my belly even more bulgier!  And if I do wear a belt, I make sure to wear a top that floats away from the body and doesn't emphasize the bulky belt. 
 
I love that black/yellow top.  It's so loose and free-flowy.... and light and airy!!!  I wear it as a tshirt, but I will wear it differently next time. I'll layer it with a jacket and will wear long pants to dress it up.

Do you ladies and gents do themes or does members just post what they wear for the day?  Would you ladies and gents be oppose to a theme or fashion challenge?  I think with theme challenges, it help people step out of their comfort zone and play with colors, textures, patterns that they may not have done or thought of. 

What are your thoughts would you participate for fun if someone does a fashion challenge?

I'm always up for a challenge. You can count me in. =)

Maybe it is the boxiness.

I am not sure... there are just some styles and some trends that I will never wear b/c it simply does not suit my body type.  I would depend on how much liberty we have to intrepret a look and whether we have it in our closets already or not. 
 
What do you have in mind?
Title: Re: Fashion Slaves...what are you wearing today?
Post by: LadyLionness on May 07, 2012, 02:53:20 PM
OK... I see.  Or we can go with something that it's already in here too... for instance... lace pencil skirt or just simply pencil skirts... we all pick a day and wear it and share pix...
 
Or go with Asia's new leather jacket... and let's see all the different styles, etc... different ways of wearing one piece... etc... maybe our interpretation or spin on it.

No sheer skirt for me. I will most likely up end wearing a slip with the skirt and that defend the purpose.
