Hey everybody! I’m back with information that I have been dyyying to share with you guys since Christmas. You’re gonna laugh. Wait for it..
My brother got me the perfect croc-textured baaaggg!! (THANK YOU, AARON <3)
Mind you, I did pick it out and order it myself.. he just gave me the money. NONETHELESS he still got it for me, and I love it, and I’m gonna use it until it falls apart!
Do you guys remember how this croc-textured-bag-hunt started? I noticed that the Olsen twins (and many of my other style icons) wear them ALL THE TIME. Literally every candid photo of them is with some variation of a crocodile or snake-textured bag. They’re gorgeous, and I think they’re also pretty classy (the bags and the Olsen twins). I could go on with how obsessed I am but I won’t. All I can say is that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are terrible enablers. The saddest part is that we’ve never even met..
Anywho! I am very grateful for this Christmas present (and for my brother, obv). I hope that one day I can maybe own a nice expensive one. It will probably take a million years but until then, this one from Zara is my baby. I took some photos of her, have a look!
I’m reading this over and I’m realizing that I’m treating this bag like it has feelings. If you know me, this is how I am with bags. If you don’t know me: I AM A HUGE BAG LADY (/nerd). If I could own a closet full of bags, I really, really would. A bag “is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity”. Thank you Doug, from the movie Devil Wears Prada. The Devil Wears Prada is my favourite movie and I just found out the character’s name was Doug. He’s right though! I feel like a woman can be defined by the kind of bag she wears. Her bag can express her personality and her taste. Am I wrong? Hopefully this Zara bag expresses that I’m a wannabe Olsen twin, haha! I can’t wait to wear it all the time! I’ll be sure to include it in upcoming outfit posts!
Hope you all have a fab weekend! Happy Fridaay!
Until next time,
Hey friends! We’re fast approaching the end of the month, so I’m back with nothing other than another Inspiration post. I’m sorry I haven’t mixed things up in a while. I’ve wanted to focus on my blog and create some new content but with working in retail and it being the holiday season, I’ve been exhausted. This past Black Friday weekend really wore me down – and it wasn’t even that busy! I did work all three days of Black Friday weekend, and in between I took a road trip to my hometown, so I really just needed some rest. If you work in retail and understand how busy and tiring it is, comment below! How did your Black Friday go?
Anyways, I’ll stay on track here. So today’s post is my inspiration for the month of November. You guys know how these work. If you haven’t visited my blog before (welcome!!), I post a series of pictures that have inspired/influenced my style for every month. For November, I’ve been loving sweaters, teddy bear coats, mom jeans, more fishnets, lots of colour, slip dresses layered over t-shirts, and “nibbled” tees (I’ll explain in a bit). Oh, and of course the Olsen twins. I’m definitely still loving them. Just to update you all, I still haven’t found the perfect croc textured bag for me. If you’ve seen one that you think I might like, bless your soul. Please share it in the comment section below!!! xx
To get into more detail, I’ve just been loving being cozy and looking stylish while I’m at it. I bought this teddy bear-esque coat from THE GAP and I’m absolutely in love with it (check it out on Instagram!). I could fall asleep on the bus wearing it. It’s THAT cozy. I’ve also been loving bright colours, or just anything that’s not black or grey. Winter is a “blah” time for most people. I think black is definitely a go to colour for this season, but I like colour! Colour makes me happy. For example, on days that need brightening, I’ve been gravitating towards my hot pink trousers. “Nibbled” tees are these lightly distressed t-shirts that we sell at Topshop. I’ve bought one in almost every colour. They go with everything and I love the fit & shape of them! At one point I thought they were called “moth-bitten” tees. You can probably Google them with either name! I might actually do a blog post on them and how I’ve been styling them.
As always, to better understand what I’ve been rambling about. Take a look at the inspiration photos below!
There you have it! November’s Inspiration. I can’t believe it’s almost December! Where has the year gone? AHH. Christmas is in like 3 weeks and I’ve bought one Christmas present. I hope you’re all ahead of the game and not like me!
Until next time,
Hi guys! I don’t know what happened, but I saw this photo of one of the Olsen twins on Tumblr.. and it just triggered this huge obsession. I have always thought the Olsen twins were fashion icons, but this photo (it wasn’t even THAT great of an outfit) just inspired me. I can’t explain it. I was just really digging the look, so then I googled and looked at more Olsen looks. I think I spent a good hour just stalking their style and trying to find an affordable croc textured tote bag lol. I can’t believe I never gave them more of my attention. I can’t believe I forgot about them!! I love their style. I love how sophisticated their looks are. They’re SO CHIC. Mary-Kate and Ashley are two very classy ladies, and I adore them. Their outfits look so effortless. I also can’t believe how easy their looks are to recreate. A few key things when it comes to the Olsen twins’ style: black, croc textured bags, loafers, anything oversized, and more black. They like scarves and clothing pieces that drape/have no shape. I know I said that I was trying to steer away from black, but they’ve really sold me on simple black pieces (like skinny jeans, cigarette trousers, long overcoats, and sweaters). They have the best monochromatic/neutral/tonal looks. I think most of their wardrobe is either white, black, or grey. These twins also know how to play with texture – they’re fashion pros! While stalking, I also browsed their website “Elizabeth and James”, and I would kill to have a piece of their collection. Preferably one of their croc leather bags because they certainly have a strong purse/bag game – and this is coming from the ultimate bag lady herself. Below are photos that I saved while I went crazy googling the Olsen twins.
Do you get what I’m saying about the croc leather bags?!! I hope I don’t sound like a lunatic while I rant about the Olsen twins lol. Hopefully, there’s a few of you who agree with me? If not, at least this gave you a good laugh.
Have a happy Friday, everyone!
