Retro Girl's guide

We love wearing fancy clothes and dressing up. We all also love doing that extra bit for the daily routine to stand out. However, the one that I can literally say on behalf of all the girls is “WE HATE WEARING BRAS“. If you are a girl, you already know it, if you are a guy, make sure you know it. The underwires, the pads, the straps, everything sucks. However, as much as we know this, we also know, it is almost a mandate. But, what if I say, it’s not? Yes, you read it right, my girl. You can walk out without wearing a bra and people would not even notice. And, I assure you, you would look as flawless as always with genuinely no extra efforts. All you have to do is pick the right material and cloth.

What Does Copying Mean in 2019?

GIRL IN COUTURE

We all hate to be copied. Nothing sucks more than having an original idea you came up being taken and used by someone else. I have gone through that and I sure plenty of other people have too. But when original ideas are scarce, what does copying even mean anymore?

Earlier this year, instagram models Cindy Kimberly and Iris Law had a feud over an apparent photo copy.

On August 11th, 2018 Iris posted a photo of her in white sheets sleeping. Six months later, Cindy posted a similar photo to Iris that showed her sleeping on white sheets. Instantly, Cindy got comments saying she copied Iris. (Apparently, Iris said this too but I can’t find the screenshots for it. I’m just going to assume she did. If anyone has the screenshots please dm me.)

“I like curvy women!”

No, you like women with big boobs, small waists and peachy bums. You like the right kind of curves.

The hourglass figure has been held on the highest pedestal of beauty for as many years as I can remember. Growing up around the time that I did, big bodies weren’t really represented, at least not how they are today. It was all about the Kate Mosses and Victoria Beckhams and, if you didn’t stand a chance of looking like them, the hourglass was what you aspired to be.

There’s no denying a bodacious hourglass figure is a beautiful sight to behold, and I have absolutely no intention of saying otherwise. I’m not here to detract from any body type. But what about the rest of us curvy women?

For years people used Marilyn Monroe as the poster girl for fuller figures. She was, of course, a…

Major fashion trend cycles, and how they keep coming back

Note: I’m going to try to go through all the various fashion styles, in separate blog posts for clarity and convenience. Once I’m done, I will try to write a better version of this analysis. Try to see this post as the first draft of a bigger thesis that might take years to complete.

If you are as interested as I am in fashion history, you might have noticed that some fashion trends, or even entire movements, seem to come back in a cyclical manner.

In fact, some analysts call it the “20 year rule”, a general concept that a trend popular right now will be brought back by a designer (or several) in two decades from now. There’s an aspect of nostalgia and lack of new ideas in this, of course, but it is often proven true.

James Laver (1899-1975) went a tad further and created an entire chart…

I Just Can’t Be Trusted

My Tangled Yarn Knitting Adventures

I was minding my own business in my office at work and I looked over at my coat and shawl and saw……a hole!! I just fixed a hole in another shawl last month! What am I doing to my knitwear? I obviously cannot be trusted!

After some careful sleuthing, I don’t think this is a broken yarn kind of issue. I could not find any ends. Just a dangling loop, which means a dropped stitch that has been hanging around since I finished and blocked this thing in 2016. I just so happened to have some EXACT MATCHING YARN BASE AND COLOR left from one of the section of my Mini Solutions Scarf so I snipped a bit off to fix my Old Man of Storr. I used a crochet hook and fixed it to match the pattern to the best of my ability and then used the scrap…

Bra Optional

Spring Outfits, travel, Vacation Clothes

I know I’ve already posted about what I was planning on wearing to Mexico but I wanted you to see them in context! And I’ll take any reason to reminisce about this amazing trip.

I’ve found that what you plan on wearing on a trip may not alway be what you end up packing so I wanted to share what actually made it in my suitcase.

Let’s begin with what I wore to jumpstart this trip!

Processed With Darkroom

I like to keep it casual and hella comfortable when traveling. IDK about you but I have a TON of flight anxiety and this pair of black yoga pants is my comfort blanket. It was cold in Charleston, SC and I’m still not sure if you dress how the weather is where you are or how it is where you end up. To compromise, I had a short sleeve t-shirt underneath for when we…
