Obsession #4

Hellooooo alll,

I have some exciting news!!

1. I am almost done with my fourth quarter at FIDM.

2. Summer break is just around the corner. This means more obsession/outfit posts and whatever else I feel like posting.

3. I have recently bought SOOO many new clothes and I can not wait to post them!!

School this quarter has been VERY crazy. I have been so busy with projects, homework and learning stupid photoshop. Also, I have been applying for various internships, so keep your fingers crossed!! I also have exciting plans this summer, I will be taking a trip to NY. There I am going to tour FIT and of course explore the city. I promise to document everything and post all about it. I am looking into going to FIT for my bachelors after FIDM, since I will only have my associates degree.

Anyways, on to my latest obsession!

The overized coat trend, is a trend we saw appear in winter, and is making its way through spring/summer. This trend is also known as “The man coat”. The oversized coat is shapeless and straight through the back and torso but it is structured on the shoulder and hip. However, do not mistaken “oversized” for poor fitting this is where the challenge is. An oversized coat has to look intentional, fashion forward and drape in just the right way. Basically, all of the Kardashians have been rocking this trend. Love them or hate them, they know how to wear this trend perfectly.

Below is my version of the trend. I found my oversized coat at Nordstrom Rack. I had to get it because it was the very last one, it was my size, and most importantly it was originally $150 and I bought it for $16. Any fashionista would not pass that up!!

Obsession #3.

This post involves two trends that I have been liking, harem pants and cropped tops.

When people think of harem pants you think of, the baggy, slouchy trousers tapered at the ankles? Images of Aladdin and MC Hammer then pop up in your head? Well the harem pant is the go-to statement piece. After witnessing many FIDM students sport these pants with such confidence and ease, I had to try the trend. This effortless beach/boho vibe just screams comfortable.

While wearing these pants balance the silhouette with a form fitting top in a solid color and slip on sandals or heels. A higher heel will lengthen the look and make it more formal for a night out; wedges or booties look great too!

While shopping for this trend I came across a crop top, which is a trend I normally don’t wear. For years I have kept wishing and wanting crop tops to go out of style. The new way to style a crop top is to just show a small bit of skin, Kim Kardashian rocks this trend.

After trying on this crop top I figured why not, and paired it with my new harem pants.

This is my new favorite “going out” look, and I recommend everyone try this trend.
