I just ordered this dress, custom to my measurements from eshakti and I’m so excited. I was looking at rent the runway and then I remembered I’d been wanting to try eshakti and when I looked their dresses ran about the same for what my budget was for RTR. Plus we’re doing the red/black/white theme for christmas outfits this year bc Dill has Jem’s hand-me-downs and that’s what we did in 2013 apparently lol. Anyway I really loved this dress and thought about it for days and figured it can be dressed up for the cocktail squadron party or a little less fancy for mass. The only thing is once I decided to do it, my husband and I kept forgetting to take my measurements so it MIGHT not be here in time for the holiday party. Which would be sad but I have a black dress that I hope still fits I can throw on if need be. Plus it was my first order so I got $25 off. A new fun dress made to my measurements for $40. I can’t wait to get it.
You’ve heard of the “cozy boy”, maybe even “health goth”, but now athleisure seems to be the new term people are using to describe the trend of wearing athletic wear outside of the gym. I mean, I just call it lazy because that’s what I am, but hey it you wanna make it cute and a trend then the new nickname works. If the ubiquity of luxury sweat shirts and sweatpants in the past year hasn’t made it official enough, then surely the recent Alexander Wang x H&M collab solidified athleisure as the new direction in fashunz. Even athletic brands are making a big comeback with old school Adidas and Nike logo apparel becoming popular again. Anyway, here’s my take on gymwear for non-exercise purposes (because ughh I hate working out). What are your thoughts on the athleisure trend?
You know what they say about a guy with big pants right? Actually, that’s not a thing, so what’s the deal with these big old diaper pants anyway? If you ask me, it’s the LEWK! Now you know I’ve been playing with the idea of baggy pants for a while now and this is just taking it to the next level. I mean while all these other dudes are wearing suits for the internet, looking somewhat homeless has always been my goal tbh,and this is definitely a step in the right direction. It seems like lately the trend’s been shifting towards relaxed, loose fitting bottoms anyway, so don’t dismiss the look just yet. From Japanese workwear to high fashunz designers, the jeans are wider and the trousers are looser. Are you ready to go back to baggy again?
Now that Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone, it’s basically the unofficial start of summer and to celebrate, I’m busting out the Hawaiian print shirt for a LEWK I’m calling the surf-core/tourist dad aesthetic. While most of us don’t have the luxury of spending countless hours at the beach all summer trying to catch that perfect wave, we can still channel the surfer off duty look with a few key pieces. A vintage-inspired Hawaiian print shirt is probably the key item to pulling this off. Literally go into any store and you’ll be able to find one (tropical florals are having a “moment” in fashunz). Pair them with some sun-faded jeans because like yeah brah my jeans are naturally distressed from beach lyfe, yanno? And lastly, buy yourself a pair of slip-on sneakers because everyone knows a true surf bro has at least one pair of beat-up slip-on Vans in their closet.
I’ll end this post with my favorite song off The Blue Album and also my current mood because HASHTAG SUMMER and eff the 9-5! Happy Listening: Weezer - Surf Wax America
I only went into Marks for a bottle of Carmenere, and ended up finding my Treat yo'self dress.
I know that block colours are probably already out, but fuck it, I love all of these colours, especially mustard (Dijon is my preference…just in case you were wondering).
Also I apologise for the awkward pose, I really do have it nailed. You see, I’m not a fan of full body shots, because lol stumps for legs, but it was the only way to show it off, other than on the hanger, which didn’t do it justice.
