black, white and graffiti

black and white dressI don’t have much to say about this look other than I am SO happy to not have to wear tights! WOOT! Also, this graffiti background might look cool, but in reality it was beyond sketch. There was all sorts of seedy debris on the ground. Could you imagine if I tripped and fell or something? I would have instantly caught an incurable disease. This is the struggle of a blogger, y’all. It’s deep stuff.

Spring, finally.

 

spring has sprungYou guys, as of this weekend, it is officially Spring in NYC. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the all too familiar smell of evaporated dog pee is starting to permeate the air.

I. am. thrilled.

It’s too early for shorts.

shortsI am so excited that we have gotten some warm days lately — but there is one problem. Premature shorts. I find it a bit annoying when people wear shorts based on the time of year, instead of the actual weather.

But this year I get the whole premature shorts thing. It has been a long and trecherous road to spring, y’all. So if you wanna wear shorts, I say go for it! Here is way to style your premature shorts so they’re appropriate for the weather.

At home

ruffle sleevesSo it rained all weekend. The rain forced me to take pictures inside of my apartment. Something I don’t usually do. Also, I was forced to wedge myself into one corner of my living room where the light was the best. This was slightly awkward. The upside of this indoor shoot is you get a great view of my dad’s rose painting. You can also see a giant photo of my mother as a little kid. She is so cute. Oh and all my books. This is about a third of the books I own. When I grow up, I want a library. So I buy all the books. No kindle for me, people!

My favorite places to shop online

I might be a fashion blogger — but I don’t like shopping. I don’t like leaving my apartment. I don’t like the lines. I don’t like the trying things on. It is annoying.

I shop online, y’all. Online shopping is the bees knees. Tip: If you don’t like online shopping because you struggle to find your size, I recommend knowing your measurements (bust, hips, waist, inseam) and using sizing charts. As we all know, some stores’ sizes run big and others run small. So if you have your true measurements that will really help to reduce the disappointment that comes when something you bought online arrives too big or too small.

So, I hope that helps with your online shopping adventures. Here are my go-to online shops.

my favorite online shops |Clarabelle.jpgdo you like my statement mitten? lol.

Asos: Asos is the QUEEN of online shopping. There are so many things to choose from that suite a wide variety of styles. They also have a huge amount of great plus size, petite and maternity choices. Asos caters to all shapes and sizes. But that is only part of what makes this site great. You can also customize your search by size, color, and price. But the absolute best part is you can watch the clothes come down the runway. Seeing a full 360 view of the clothes move on the model is super imperative. Especially when you’re taking a chance and buying a piece that you wouldn’t usually wear. The runway shots basically take all the risk out of online buying.

J. Crew Factory: In case you didn’t already know, J. Crew’s Factory store is online. Yes, ONLINE! They also have the absolute best sales ever. I am talking 30%-60% off. However, know you are getting factory clothes. The clothes are adorable but the sizing is always huge, so have your measurements ready.

Etsy: If you want unique or one-of-a-kind clothes, etsy is the only option. I have found some of my favorite pieces on etsy like this and this. It definitely takes some digging. There is some ugly stuff on etsy, I can’t lie. But when doesn’t a girl have to kiss a few frogs before she finds her prince (princess? I don’t know what gender clothes are.).

Bonus – Revolve Clothing: This site can get a bit pricey, but the clothes are so on-trend and cute. I couldn’t not mention this site.
