Trend Report ||Faux Fur Jackets

TREND REPORT2

Hi Loves,

“An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity.” This famous quote from the Devil wears Prada, has been instilled in my body, not just because I’ve seen this film numerous times, but because this quote speaks truth about fashion. So how can I relate this quote to my latest trend report? Well only by relating it to another equally iconic piece of fashion that being the fur jacket (faux of course). This film had so many major fashion moments, but Miranda Priestly tossing her fur coat on the desk of, poor Andy had to be my favorite.

Let’s be real! The feeling you get when you’re wearing a faux- fur jacket, is like no other feeling by comparison. Yeah, you have your denim, and leather jackets; but dawning this statement; textured jacket, adds a simplicity and coziness to any outfit. The hype over these faux fur jackets are not misplaced, being able to come in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns have made this staple piece fun to wear all while being super fashionable. Here are a few picks that I’ve chosen to get you on board of the Faux- Fur trend.

Trend Report // Animal Print

Hi Loves.

Animal Print! I feel like of all the trends, colors, and patterns that have come forward in fashion, animal print has evolved the most. I feel like in fashion we have a tendency to look at floral and pastels as a spring trend, and plaids to be fall pattern, but animal print stands out as its own independent print— this print is an all year round print that transcends versatility. (This is a PSA to go ahead and buy more of these fierce prints, it’ll do your closet justice).

Animal Print is a necessity to your closet, like enough is never enough with this pattern. Animal prints come in shades, colors, stripes & spots—offering versatility and neutrality to any look you deem wearable. Michael Kors, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and many more have made animal print their “Bitch” when it comes to imprinting their signature style on fashion. Once upon a time, animal print was considered trashy; but I think the term critiques were looking for was “Fierce” because who doesn’t feel empowered wearing stripes of a tiger, and spots of a cheetah. Understanding this print has always been controversial but made to turn heads and give you that {*INSERT FINGER WAG*} yassss appeal.

I know for a fact that we all had that whether it was your mom or aunty that wore animal print head to toe; and when they came around you would joke or ask, “what are you wearing” (I have a few of them in the family) but as you got older, you see that the cheetah print blouse, or leopard scarf is hella chic. This print has been worn for generations and have become a gem in the world of fashion. From downtown to Uptown, New York to Jersey, loud to simple; the unequivocal print plays at all mediums and can capture the essence of different volumes, this print is no one note wonder.

When it comes to Animal Print, like the ferocious animals the prints are created behind, they go rogue during one season, and then BAM! Attack there’s animal print on the street, runway, stores, you name it. Despite the various prints, textures, and colors; this specific pattern are able to be mixed and matched with other animal prints or other categorical prints; either way you will be a statement piece. This bold print has been placed as a neutral, but it’s not your classic shades of black, grey, and taupe; this neutral can give an outfit the touch of sophistication or sex appeal, donning this with a plain tank top, or a black leather mini, playing with the levels of animal print just mean you’re not afraid to take a walk on the wild side.

Animal print is the Beyonce’ prints, PERIODT! (ALL CAPS ON THE “T”) I mean think about it: plays with volume, uncategorized, and works well with any tone…..just the BEST! The best thing about these bunch of prints, is there are no rules when wearing this print, and that’s why animal print is seasonal.

I hope reading this gives you the urge to just buy, buy, buy; and stock your wardrobe with this profound fierceness.

Dresslily Haul //

Hi Loves,

The year is coming to an end, and soon it will be bye-bye comfy sweaters and hello spring wardrobe, but I still have a few months before I hang up my coat and fur boots. I recently had the pleasure of trying a few pieces from Dresslily, whom I’ve worked with before. If you’re new to wholesale shopping; Dresslily is a wholesale site that sales the trendiest clothing of the season ranging from hats, to all sorts of accessories. Now let’s see what I got!!!!!

I brought 4 items, because fashion on Dresslily is inexpensive, but the dollas add up. First item I got was a Asymmetrical stripped shirt, when I first got the shirt, I thought it was badly stitched, and I paid for what I got, but after looking at the product over & over,I seen that it was supposed to look like that. The shirt is nice, the material isn’t bad, very soft and drapes great. The next few items were accessories, I brought a pair of wooden glasses that was only $10. In the cold season, a girl can never have too any beanies!! I brought this embellished beanie for $9, now I know it’s a little steep in pricing, but this hat was socute, and I even got creative, and added some pins to add a lil grunge-esque flavor to it. Lastly, I got 2 layered necklaces b/ silver. They both were about $4, if you grew up in the 90’s these necklaces are a must for your jewelry box.

That’s all for today, I know it was a little short, but there are more post to come! Be sure to like this post + let me know in the comments if you’ve shopped dresslily before, If so, what’s your favorite item you’ve purchased?
