fashion friday. dresses, tights, and ankle boots. June 12, 2009

Okay, so I decided to present these outfits in a different way this time (and future times, probably), by using Polyvore to put the clothes into one cohesive image, rather than a million different pictures. Those pictures were extremely hard to format, and while I do not consider this way any better, in terms of aesthetics (on the contrary, I did like the find the other way better to look at), I do find it much, much easier to do. So there you go. This week I put together a cute, sleeveless dress, footed tights, and ankle boots for your viewing pleasure. Once again, these outfits are put together by category: under $20, under $40, and under $1000. The over $1000 category is way too impractical and works mostly for single items, rather than whole outfits, so don’t expect to happen any time soon. Anyway, onto the outfits!

under $20
All of the items above are priced less than $20. What you can’t see in this picture of those white (“cream”) tights is that they have a lace pattern on them that is quite nice. You can get them here, at Forever21, and they are on sale for $2.99. I think that three dollars for tights is lovely, don’t you? Next up, the dress. It’s $19.50 at Wet Seal, here, and comes in sizes small to large. Okay, so the deal with those boots? Newport News (those bastards…) do not have a picture of the shoe color that I chose from their website. What kind of retailer are they?! Disgusting… But, they *did* have a swatch of the color, which is what is in front of you now. Yeah, that purple color. Your job: imagine those boots, in that color. And get them here, for $17.99, and choose from sizes 5 to 10 and 11.

save $40
All of the items above are priced less than $40. These tights are so gorgeously purple (or “lily,” as Shopbop describes them…), and I love them. Get them here, for $36. They come in sizes small to medium/large (with two sizes in between, so go check it out). Next up, that lovely dress. Lace is a love of mine, of course. I think the contrast of girly and down-to-earth (from the boots) make for a nice combination. Get it here, at Forever21, for $22.80. The dress comes in sizes extra small to large. I really like these boots, as well, although I know that some of you dear readers won’t. They are cowboy boots, after all. You can buy them here, in sizes 6 to 9, from Wet Seal.

under $1000
All of the items above are priced less than $1000. I like this outfit most of all (at least, I think so… I really like all of the outfits, though), mostly because of the boots and the dress. So retro! Anyway, the tights are available here, at Shopbop, and they come in size 4 (which I take to mean the regular tights sizing and not juniors or misses sizing…). Yes, they are foldover, but who’s really going to see that when you have that dress on? Also, I know that these only have one size available right now, but I’m so sure that that will change soon that I decided to post them anyway. So there. The dress is from Anthropologie (after that disgusting romper, I needed something to remind me how awesome this store is most of the time…), and you can find it here, for $128. It comes in sizes extra small to large. Finally, those fabulous boots! Look at that bow! Get them here, at ModCloth, for $42.99. You can choose from sizes 5.5 to 9, and you better. Who better to wear these shoes than one of my readers? Oh, right. ME.

sunday shopping spree. coats. May 10, 2009

It’s that day of the week again! I love the Sunday Shopping Spree because it gives me an excuse (even more than this blog gives me) to hunt for cute things that fit a theme. Yay! Okay, this week, I found nine different coats for you, dear reader, from five different retailers. Rejoice in the coat! Yes, I realize that it is very nearly summer, but you could always buy these coats in preparation for winter. Right? Right! On to these lovelies, in ascending price order:

CHOCOLATE

twill self belt jacket.

Well, considering the name has “jacket” in it, you can guess that it is not really a coat but is quite cute nonetheless. This, um, jacket is $22.50 here at Wet Seal and comes in three colors: chocolate (or brown, which is pictured above), khaki, and white. You can buy khaki or white in sizes small, medium, and large and chocolate in small.

houndstooth wool swing jacket.

Yeah, yeah. I realize that this one also has “jacket” in the name. Whatever. It’s adorable. I love swing jackets. So there. If you want this cute thing, go here to Forever21, where it is $29.80 (again, with their weird prices). The site only carries this one color, in sizes medium and large. Very retro. Also, it probably won’t keep you warm. Just saying…

Wuthering Heights Jacket

wuthering heights jacket.

This next one definitely won’t keep you warm and is called a jacket, as well. And looking down the list of things to post, only one item is actually called a coat. Maybe I should have called this Sunday Shopping Spree “Jackets,” instead? Oh, well. I don’t really care to change it. Moving on! I love the name for this piece: Wuthering Heights Jacket. I hated the book, but the name calls up images of romanticism, which is also true for this jacket. Just look at. Super cute. Buy it here, at Modcloth, for $47.99 in sizes small, medium, or large.

Fawn Brown Canvas Bib Jacket by Tulle Clothing

fawn brown canvas bib jacket.

Yes, another jacket, under the guise of “Coats.” I hate you all. Anyway, this deer-colored (Get it? Fawn? I crack myself up.) jacket is quite nice, and you can find it here, at Plasticland for the not quite so nice price of $56. The site says that the jacket tends to run small, so check out their size chart before you buy. This jacket comes in sizes extra small to extra large, so availability shouldn’t hold you back.

Green Cord Cropped Swing Jacket by Tulle Clothing

green cord cropped swing jacket.

Oh, my goodness, another swing jacket! How did that get there? The swing jacket fairy must have dropped it here… It would be a shame not to tell you where to find it, now wouldn’t it? Yes. Of course. So… buy it here, also at Plasticland, in this gorgeous green color that comes in sizes extra small to medium. Once again, the site says that this item runs small, so I’m sorry for those readers who wear larger than a medium. Feel lucky, though, that you don’t have to spend $59 on this swing jacket and go buy that houndstooth one.

in the city jacket.

Okay, so even though this caption says, “jacket,” it really means “coat.” Look at it. It’s obviously a coat, right? Right. If you want to buy this misnamed black coat, get it here, at Cutimus for $68 in small, medium, or large. Look at all those buttons… and the bell-like sleeves… and the sash… Le sigh.

Polka Dot Retro Cropped Jacket by Tulle Clothing

polka dot retro cropped jacket.

Fine, this one deserves the jacket name, but I swear it’s the last one in the list that is a jacket and not a coat. Does that make you feel better, dear readers? I hope so. Buy this adorable polka-dotted charcoal jacket here at Plasticland for $86. You can get it in sizes extra small to large, which should be true to size.

Magical Mystery Tour Coat

magical mystery tour coat.

Finally! The one true coat in the list. I know you’ve been waiting for it, and isn’t it gorgeous? Look at that magnificent color! It’s almost blinding how purple this Magical Mystery Tour Coat is. The name even goes with the color, doesn’t it? Buy it here, at ModCloth, in sizes extra-small to large, for the magical price of $99.99. Maybe all those nines are somehow special and mysterious? In the my-money-is-gone-before-I-knew-it kind of way.

Notre Dame Bell Trench

notre dame bell trench.

Lastly, a coat that is called a trench. Oh, well. It has a pretty, retro feel to it, and you can buy it here at ModCloth for $104.99, which will remind you of Notre Dame and why you didn’t go there in the first place. Private schools are so expensive… This coat comes in sizes extra small to large and is definitely worthy of that bow.

enchanted seeds bracelet. absolutely stunning. May 9, 2009

I am not really one for bracelets, unless they look special and unique, so it probably comes as no surprise that this bracelet is definitely both of those. I can imagine it with a white ruffled shirt or dress, but other than that, I’m not really sure what exactly I would pair with this magnificent bracelet.

feminine and ethereal.

Also, the price is pretty steep, so I’m not really sure if I should be imagining it with anything right now. Because I cannot afford it. If $298 is paltry change for you, feel free to get it here, at Anthropologie, where all my fledgling dreams are crushed.

bow-tie baby doll dress. perfect for that hat. April 30, 2009

Do you remember that Mini Dramatic Straw Hat that I posted the other day? This dress is even more perfect for that hat than the Nanette Lepore Rain Dress I half-heartedly tried to pair it with. I would wear both that hat and this dress to the beach. I love the beach. Ah, summer, you are so close, but yet so far… Lame.

perfect for that dramatic hat.

If you like summer just as much as I do and want to wear cute things to the beach, buy this dress here, at Victoria’s Secret for the sale price of $29, from the original price of $38. $9 off isn’t too bad, right? It comes in sizes XXS to XL, which is quite a range, if you ask me. Colors include (brace yourselves): white/black, cherry (red, essentially)/white, bubblegum (pink)/white, dayglow yellow/white, green garden/white, ultra teal/white, ink blot (blue)/white, chocolate (brown)/white, and black/white. The dress in the picture is white/black, which is my favorite. Out of the many, many choices.

long-sleeve v-neck cardigan. double hyphens. April 26, 2009

Tags: , , , ,

Green is my favorite color. No doubt. This cardigan is a fulfillment of my love for green. It looks really lightweight, and I would suggest wearing it over a ruffled tank top, with jeans and some heels or flats. Basically, a comfortable, put-together (more hyphens here) outfit.

No Boundaries - Juniors Long-Sleeve V-Neck Cotton Cardigan

i love green.

You can buy this green one here at Wal-mart (I know!) for $6 (I know!), but it also comes in navy, pink, red, and black. Sizes include S to XXL, but only the black color has only L to XXL. With this price, though, get them all! (like Pokémon?)

green merona micaela moccasins. like pocahontas. April 25, 2009

Filed under: shoes. — stylistanumberone @ 11:52 pm
Tags: , , , ,

Yeah, yeah. I doubt that Pocahontas wore moccasins like these, but I was just making a politically incorrect tie-in. You know? I’m going to stop now. These shoes are the perfect low-key additions to a casual ensemble. Jeans and a cute tee would be fine, but don’t try to crap them up by looking like crap. No shoe is made for that. Except maybe Uggs. Which sound like “ugh.” I know.

like pocahontas. shut up.

These are deliciously marked down from the original price of $24.99 to a more reasonable $12.50 at Target. I told you: half price is my deal. Anything for you. Actually, though, it’s only for those readers who wear sizes 5.5, 6, 6.5, or 11. Odd, that 11. Where did he come from? Oh, well. Grab them up here, I guess, you small-footed and big-footed readers. Good luck.
