So… you guys missed me, right? Or just the clothes? I’ll just tell myself that ya’ll missed me. It’ll help my self esteem. Here’s a gorgeous shirt under $20 to console you dear readers about my extended absence (and don’t worry, the whole chest part isn’t really sheer. I know there were some scared readers out there.):

satin button down top with sheer chest.

Hot Couture sells it here, for $15, and this white comes in sizes small to large, while a pink only comes in large. Yes, the ruffles are back, as well.

terrible tuesday. asymmetrical chiffon top. May 26, 2009

The features just coming, don’t they? Soon, I’ll probably have a feature for every day. Oh, wait… Wednesday’s the only one left, right? Come back tomorrow to see if I decided to assign it its own feature. Ooh, the tension! Anyway, here’s today’s terrible feature:

the flowers don't make it any better.

Whenever I look at the flowers at the neck, I think, “Forever21 must have thought that the flowers could redeem this top.” P.S. They can’t. And get this: Forever21 has a special banner on this product’s page that reads, “Exclusively Ours.” Who would want to admit that?! You know, my relationship with this store is definitely a love/hate one… If you decide that you can’t live without this shirt anyway, get it here, for $34. Maybe the high price is because of the flowers? Because nothing else can justify it, really. It comes in sizes extra small to large, and when a top at Forever21 has a wider range than just small to large, you know Forever21 is trying to appeal to everybody…

fashion friday. graphic tee, vest, shorts, and necklace. May 22, 2009

So… another feature is born! I decided that I have way too many clothes in the backlogs of my bookmarks for this blog, so the easiest way to get rid of them quicker is to post them en masse. Every friday, I will post three different outfits that I have put together from the three categories that I use most: under $20, under $40, and under $1000. Each piece in the outfit will reflect the category, for you, the discerning shopper. This week, I decided to put together a combination of a graphic tee, a buttoned vest, shorts, a necklace, and shoes that matched the shirt. I would definitely wear each outfit, so decide your budget… I hope you like the outfits!

kadjkfajdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa All of the items above are less than $20. I really like how this outfit turned out. I don’t think that it’s too matchy-matchy at all, but maybe you’ll disagree…? You can find the tee (yes, I know “embellished” is spelled wrong, but I just wrote what Wet Seal had on their website. Pathetic…) at Wet Seal, here, for $12.90, in sizes extra small to large. The vest is from Windsor, for $13.98, here. It comes in sizes petite (which, I believe, is smaller than small) to large. Regardless of the picture, it is in black. The necklace comes from Forever21, here, for $7.80. The shorts are from Charlotte Russe. Buy them here for $16.99, in sizes 1 through 13. Lastly, the shoes. Those gorgeously-colored shoes… Get them here, at Forever21. They are $18.80 and come in sizes 6 through 9, with no half sizes in between.

All of the items above are less than $40. I know that this outfit, with its wide range of purples, will not appeal to everyone, but I absolutely love the top that I chose for it. Skulls = my obsession, remember? Of course you do… Well, to recreate this outfit, buy it here, at Plasticland for $25. The shirt comes in sizes small, medium, and large. Next, the vest can found here, at ModCloth for $34.99 and also comes in sizes small, medium, and large. The necklace you should buy is the “mist” color (it’s actually white.) for $20, here at Plasticland. Those cute shorts can be found at LuLu*s for $24, here, in sizes 0 and 3 to 11. Finally, those cute shoes! Don’t they really remind you of the Jetsons for which they’re named? Grab them at ModCloth for $34.99, here, in sizes 6 through 10, with no half sizes available.

All of the items pictured are priced less than $1000. Like the outfits before this one, I love this shirt, as well. Look at that gorgeous plum color! And that crazy-ass dog! Fascinating… I think the white vest really makes it pop out at you, too. So… get it here, at Bluefly. For $69, you can get it in sizes extra small to extra large so that you, too, can have a sequined dog on your chest. Next, the white vest, which you can buy at Urban Outfitters, here. It comes in sizes extra small to large, for $48. The necklace, which I also adore, is $135 at Bluefly, here. Those black shorts are available in sizes 24 to 32 for $133 at Shopbop, here. Last, the shiny shoes are also from Shopbop, here, on sale for $227.50 (An odd number, I know. Are they taking tips from Forever21?). They are available in sizes 5.5 to 9 and 10.

Well, that’s it, dear readers! I hope you enjoyed my new feature, and look forward to next week’s equally fun outfits!

thrifty thursday. ruffled shirts. May 21, 2009

Filed under: clothes. — stylistanumberone @ 6:30 am
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Did anybody have a doubt about my love for ruffles? …I didn’t think so. Anyway, this “Thrifty Thursday” post will soon become routine. In short, everything written in a post like this one will be under $20, hence the “thrifty” part, of course. This week, I found a lot of ruffled shirts (nine, in total.) from various places (but mostly from Forever21, where the ruffle rules apparently). Unsurprisingly, a lot of them are white, but I did find some gorgeous colors, with equally interesting names, such as “aqua” and “sage,” which is really code word for “light blue” and “teal,” respectively. Go figure.

rosy ruffle top.

First up, is this little number that features puff sleeves and an interesting trim that Forever21 has taken to calling “crochet-like bubble edge details” (but I’m guessing they didn’t know what to call them, really). Regardless of the weirdly-named detailing, this shirt would be a great addition to any wardrobe. Buy it here, at Forever21 for $15.80 in yellow, pictured, and “ivory” (white, for all you non-elephant-poachers). Both comes in sizes small, medium, and large.

sleeveless ruffled blouse.

Next, I have this tuxed-like shirt to show you dear readers. The ruffling in this shirt is considerably less eccentric than many of the pieces featured here, but it has the addition of a waist tie that I really like (you know bows and me…). Buy it here, at Papaya, for $15.99, in sizes small, medium, and large.

ruffled cap sleeve top shirt.

This beauty is next. Look at all those ruffles! Except, this is nothing. Look down at the bottom of this post, and then you’ll know how many ruffles Forever21 can stuff on their blouses… It is a very classic-looking ruffled shirt that will lend itself well to an accompanying vest, especially because no ruffles lower at the waist means no weird bunching under said vest. Buy it here, at Forever21, for $17.80. Sizes include small, medium, and large.

sheer ruffle top.

Oh, no! Another white top! I told you this would happen, didn’t I? Well, don’t despair; most of the rest have other colors to choose from. Anyway, this one here is definitely ruffly. I mean, look at that fan detailing in the collar! Gorgeous… Buy it here, at Forever21, for $17.80. This white top comes in sizes small, medium, and large. Am I sensing a pattern here, Forever21? Do they not have such sizes as extra small or extra large? How droll.

AQUA

smocked waist blouse.

This shirt is one of my favorites. Partly because of the color and partly because of the little ruffled cap sleeves. Adorable! Buy it here, at Wet Seal, for $18.50, and choose from the aforementioned aqua, which is pictured, and black. Unlike Forever21, Wet Seal offers its customers sizes extra small to extra large, in both colors.

ruffle button top.

I like that this shirt would look really great with a wide black belt around the waist. The collar is also lovely, and I adore those little buttons at the top of the collar and at the bottom of the keyhole. It’s $18.99 here, at Charlotte Russe. This top is the last white one, which is the only color it comes in, but you can get it in sizes small, medium, and large.

crepe cotton ruffle top.

What a great color! I’m lusting after it already. Except… the crepe turns me off just a wee bit. The texture can be unsettingly, like old people skin, but other than that disturbing fact, I really do like it. If you do, as well (and don’t mind the old people skin), get it here, at Forever21 (where else?) for $19.80. It comes in the pictured sage, yellow, and white, which all are available in Forever21’s only three sizes (apparently): small, medium, and large.

sheer pinstripe ruffle top.

Like cotton candy? Then, you’ll love this shirt. Isn’t it just the epitome of cotton candy clothes? I assure you, dear readers, it is. Lightly striped and immensely ruffled, this shirt is fantastic. The smocked waist will also help to give an illusion of an hourglass figure, which is always nice. Get it here, at Forever21 (stop hating! the last one is from there, as well…), for $19.80. Buy either the featured peach (pink) or cream (white) in sizes small, medium, and large.

ivonne ruffle front shirt.

Okay, last one! It seems as if Forever21 just crammed as many ruffles as they could onto this shirt. It’s like some sort of ruffle factory… Do you think that they keep appearing the longer you wear it, and before you know it, they’ve eaten you? …shudder… Maybe I wouldn’t mind, though… I do love those ruffles! Anyway, enough horror stories. Get this ruffle monster here, at Forever21, for $19.80. Both the orange, pictured, and the white come in small, medium, and large. Way to break the mold, Forever21… NOT!

ruched halter top. more peacock feathers… May 20, 2009

Filed under: clothes. — stylistanumberone @ 6:09 am
Tags: , , , ,

Okay, I admit it. I’m obsessed. Only this time it’s peacock feathers. You know, to add to my list of keys, bows, ruffles, dresses, skulls, plaid, buttons… OH GOD I AM OBSESSED WITH EVERYTHING. Excuse me while I go cry in the corner. …I’m back! This shirt has quite a few things going for it. First off, the, um, peacock feather print (which we’ve already established, as you may know.), which is well-placed and not boring at all. Second, is the style: this type of halter is one of my favorites, but if you have broad shoulders, you may want to hold off on buying it, if you dislike making them look bigger. If not, buy away! Third, the color is gorgeous and quite versatile. This shirt would go well with nice black pants, like on the mannequin, or even a high-waisted skirt to make it interesting.

more peacock feathers?

If you’re not tired of the peacock feather theme, buy this shirt here, at Papaya, for $14.99. It comes in sizes small, medium, and large, but they should sell out quickly because the other color of this shirt, brown, is already sold out. Go now!

polka dot v-strap. retro. April 26, 2009

Tags: , , , ,

I’m not actually sure if this top is really that retro-looking, but it does remind me of pin-up girls. And summer. Definitely summer. I would pair this with some white capris, and black or purple t-strap sandals. Either way, gorgeous.

kind of retro.

It is made by Finesse and comes in Medium and Large. You can buy it here at Hot Couture (one of my favorite on-line shopping stores) for $12. They update their inventory pretty regularly, though, so don’t miss out!
