As I was digging in the depths of my mind for a new blog post that wasn’t complete and utter shit, it came to me. I scrolled through my blog for it and then I found it: an old post called ‘Bougie Fashion Finds.‘ Because the 4th of July is right around the corner and my favorite stores are literally pulling sales out of their asses, I decided to continue my Bougie Fashion Finds series after abandoning it for other shit. I hope y’all noticed how I used the French word for two instead of using, good ol’ American. I’m trying to transform this blog into a transracial, transethnic, and multicultural blog in an attempt to snatch up some sponsorships and become internet famous. Anyways, let’s just jump right into this post with my first bougie selection!
The Silk Panel Top
COS is literally my dream store and its aesthetic makes my mouth water. Unfortunately, I’m broke and usually can’t afford anything from here, but COS is having a 50% off sale and I ordered this beautiful silk panel v-neck top. Layered pieces have never really been my thing because I usually find them tacky, unflattering, and just a mess in general, but I really adored this piece because of the contrasting materials in one color. Pastel blue is one of my favorite colors, and the hue of this shirt looked beautiful on the website. The slightly boxy fit is also appealing, because I find that a lot of tops like this have no shape and I end up looking like I threw a fucking trash bag on and called it a day. For $50, this is a great steal and I’m hoping it lasts a long ass time.
I’m very ‘meh’ on rompers. Some of them look amazing and some look like a complete damn mess, but I honestly could give two fucks about the perfect romper to add to my wadrobe. After a long day of internet fuckery, I found this piece on Loft’s website, and I just fell in love with the romper. The floral detailing + the rust orange color + the v-neck = a flawless one-piece. It was like lust at first sight. I almost shelled out the $79.50 the romper would’ve originally cost because I liked this piece so much, but Loft pulled through with that 4th of July sale, and I got to buy it for half off. Shout out to the 4th of July, because them sales have been leaving my wallet happy, and my inner shopaholic happy.
The Frayed Hem Denim Shorts
When it was about 3000 fucking degrees outside, I searched my struggle wardrobe for a pair of denim shorts to throw on. I made a horrifying discovery: I didn’t have any decent shorts. The only shorts I had were these ugly ass shorts I bought from the dollar store because I had nothing else to wear. Lemme tell y’all, these shorts were ugly as fuck and I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing them outside of my house. On the flip side, these shorts from Mixxmix were exactly what I needed for the summer heat. High waisted shorts give my nonexistent ass some life and these fit the bill. The frayed ends were also appealing considering I’m not the biggest fan of a rolled up hem. What really made these a bougie fashion find was the price: These shorts were only $21.30 and right now Mixxmix has them on sale for $17.04!
The Wrap Dress
I absolutely love a cute ass dress and Aritzia came the fuck through with what I was looking for. Usually, I take one look at Aritzia and cry tears of blood because everything is so damn expensive, but today was the day y’all. It was the day I actually purchased something from Aritzia. My dress collection is composed of fancy ass dresses for fancy ass occassions, and I just wanted something I could throw on and carry on with the rest of my day. This dress fit the bill. The grey color is subdued while the wrapped hem at the bottom makes the dress seem more sophisticated then it actually is. Also, the fit was lovely and I’m always up for purchasing a bodycon dress that makes me look and feel great.
The Short Crochet Top
When I think crochet, I used to think of needles, yarn, and struggling. I was complete shit at crocheting y’all. This top gives crochet a new meaning. Instead of serving y’all a fresh, heaping plate of struggle, this top is serving up fresh boho vibes.When I first saw this on Zara’s website, I scrolled past it mainly because of my fear of halter tops and my aversion to crocheted shit. On second glance though, I could feel the top calling to me and my empty wallet. For $9.99, there wasn’t much to lose and I’ll be slaying heauxs on the beach in my lil’ top.
So that concludes my second ‘Bougie Fashion Finds’ post and I actually think I won’t abandon it like I do with the rest of my ideas. As usual, any constructive criticism is welcomed and encouraged.
