Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Stripe 


     I love to push the envelope when it comes to approaching everyday style. I get bored very easily so wearing things that are tricky to pull of are intriguing. If you have ever seen Beetle Juice or a vintage prison uniform you would probably never ever want to attempt this look. Fashion should be fun so I did just that. 


     Stripes are very tricky in general. Vertical stripes can be very slimming while horizontal stripes tend to make things look wider than they are. The key is knowing your body type. I am a true believer that there are no rules when it comes to fashion. There are however, some helpful guidelines that can help you look more visually appealing. 


If you’re smaller on top then you want to wear your horizontal stripes on the top portion of your body and vice versa. If you have wide hips and you want to wear horizontal stripes then go for a thinner line pattern or one with alternating pinstripes. At the end of the day you look the best when you’re confident. If you love the way you look nothing else really matters. 

     If you think your outfit may or may not look like a prison uniform then give them a good pose and own it! Always put your best foot forward in fashion. Life is to short to wear boring clothes.

So I was going through some of my old photos on Instagram as I was trying to evaluate my wardrobe and find an outfit for BeautyCon this weekend and I decided to share what I found with you guys! I really enjoy putting new looks together. It’s no secret that I love to shop! If you are subscribed to my blog you already know some of my favorite places to shop:

H&M
Is my favorite places to find clothes for work, outfits for a night out and pieces to complete and outfit. The price point is almost always super affordable and great for any budget.

ZARA
Is my favorite place on earth to find quality pieces. I like to pic up handbags, shoes and dresses here. If you are looking for outerwear pop on to ZARA and take a look! Trench coats blazers and winter coats are timeless and great pieces to invest in.

F21
If you are in a time crunch and don’t have to much time to shop check out forever 21. Their pieces are not going to last you forever all the time but they are always on trend for any night club event or night out with the girls.
