fast fashion stinks
Boy am I sounding my age here (38, nearly 39 for the record) when I say that the affordable clothes available these days are downright garbage. Is it me, or is Nordstrom now only catering to the 22 year old girl who shows her bootie and stomach in an inappropriate way? Enough with the crop tops, short shorts and flimsy fabric!
While those items may be affordable, in person they just look cheap. And some of it is still $50-70 and it still looks cheap! Also, what used to be my go to online store, shopbop, is truly disappointing me with how expensive their clothes are. I’ve experimented buying a few summer dresses that I splurged on, only to return them the second I saw them. I was shocked at the quality! No lining, no quality zippers, nothing!
I am going to get into how I make money off of being a blogger in a future post, and explain “the business of blogging” soon, but in the meantime I wanted to rant.
My goal in this site is to share things that I both believe in and I believe will be helpful. That goes for all topics – home, sharing my struggle with depression, clothes I like and ways I decorate for holidays.
I started sharing clothes because my style is very simple and straightforward. I’m not the fashion blogger for sure. But I wanted to share quality clothes I love and looks I love just in case you like my clothing style. I want this site to be a place you trust for my honest opinion and review – because truth? I don’t need the money this blogging thing brings. It’s nice, yes. But my blog is based out of joy and love and not to put food on the table.
With that, I’m stepping off my soapbox (and falling to the floor because I can never do anything gracefully) and sharing with you one of the only truly quality dresses I’ve purchased online in awhile. I’ve shared it before but I mean it when I say:
- It’s lined very well.
- There are pockets!
- The fabric quality is very good for the price.
- At least 4 followers of mine have purchased it and thanked me for the recommendation.
- It comes in pink and black also.
Note – ladies, to be candid. I’m wearing a push up bra in this. You don’t have to be so “pa-pow” in this dress if you don’t want to. I just personally am working my assets I like (and my husband does) but you could easily wear a normal bra and this dress would look classy and pretty and less “hey, how YOU DOIN’.”
talk with you later, friends.
