Funny enough, I never dressed like this in the 90's. I was still a little chitlin back then so it was more like JNCO jeans and Esprit sneakers. And, my dad would have killed me if he ever saw me in a cropped top!

Do you ever buy something, then realize it's not your style or even your size? Yeah, me neither. But my mom does it all the time! Especially when she goes shopping without me or my sister. Which is how I came to own this amazing duster jacket. Every time I wear it I feel like an instant superstar! I love how it trails behind me like a super hero's cape.

Leave it to Alexander Wang to give us a new way to wear a button down shirt. I mean, I didn't even know I was bored with my current method - messy half tuck with a few top buttons undone - until I saw his ss14 runway show. I don't think I'll be wearing my shirts like this on the regular, maybe after an intense ab workout.

I love a good jumpsuit in the spring, but they are so high maintenance I can't wear one for more than a few hours.
Case in point: I wore this outfit for a meeting the other day. Now, I was getting ready by myself and was seriously struggling to zip up the back of the jumpsuit. After getting all frustrated and hot in the face I thought fuck it, I'll just get my friend to help me later when she comes to pick me up. So I pulled the zipper up as high as I could with the expectation of going directly from my apartment to my friend's car. Literally as soon as I step outside I hear this guy say, "Hey. You know your thing's undone in the back." UGH, seriously?!?! He then insists on zipping me up the rest of the way! So there I was standing on the street corner with a middle aged man yanking up my zipper - which, he struggled with too, btw.
The gesture was nice, but so awkward and embarrassing! The rest of the day I dreaded using the bathroom because of the whole zipper situation. Next time I wear a jumper like this, I'll be sure to have a buddy with me at all times.
