Bougie Fashion Finds: Part Deux

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.

 

The Romper

 

 

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. What are your recent fashion finds? Any favorite new things you’ve purchased? Leave a comment below letting me know, because this girl wants to know about new fashionable shit you’ve found.

Bougie Fashion Finds

Recently, instead of getting my studying done I tend to scour the internet for cute crap I can’t actually afford. Despite me being the brokest nigga of broke niggas, I manage to waste my life by looking at expensive ass shit. With my hours of internet browsing, I managed to find some affordable and fashionable pieces I wanted to share with y’all. Since y’all probably don’t want to read anymore of me rambling on, let’s start this post!

The Faux Leather Jacket

Faux Leather Rider Jacket from Mixxmix , $61.09

     Faux leather jackets have been trendy for a hot minute now but my struggle self was unable to afford any sort of leather jacket. Faux leather, real leather, you name it and I couldn’t afford it. After spending 37838 hours on Mixxmix’s website, I found this fire leather jacket for only sixty – one dollars. For only sixty – one dollars I can serve super badass black girl teas. Shout out to black Jesus for helping me to find this jacket.

The Asymmetrical Mini Skirt

Mon Cheri Asymmetrical Mini Skirt from Pomelo ,$19

Despite it being cold as shit outside, I found this adorable pink mini skirt on Pomelo. Shout out to Cardi B. for telling me a hoe never gets cold. Even if I’m freezing my ass off in this skirt, I’ll still be stunting on everyone. For $19, I’ll be looking fly as hell anywhere I go.

The Printed Trousers

Trousers with Zips from Zara , $25.99

From the picture, these pants may look extra as hell or super lackluster depending on your fashion sense, but I fell in love with these on first click. When these came in the mail I was praying to black Jesus that these pants would fit perfectly. Now, when I tell y’all that these pants fit perfectly, I am not joking. My normally concave ass actually looked good in these pants. I was actually shocked at how well these fit. With a black turtleneck and my black oxfords, I was looking fly as hell in my outfit. Shout out to black Jesus for coming through with these pants.

The Velvet Crop Top

Velvet Long Sleeve Crop Top from Stylenanda , $24

I had been looking for some sort of velvet shirt for the longest time and I was tragically not able to find one. After hours of picking through crappy thrift store items, I was not able to find a single velvet top. Luckily for me, Stylenanda came through with this crop top. With a leather skirt and some booties, this top will look fly as hell.

 

The Lace Up Flats

London Rebel Ghillie Lace Point Flat Shoes from ASOS , $48

Recently, I realized that all of my flats were on their last leg, literally. Aside from them shits falling apart while I walked, I didn’t actually like any of them, I just bought them because they were cheap. In an attempt to up my shoe game, I went and splurged on these lace up flats. Normally I’d have an aneurysm at the thought of spending over twenty dollars on flats, but my shoe game was so weak that I made a special exception for these babies. Another shout out to black Jesus, because these were reduced to forty – eight dollars which isn’t too bad when compared to their original price of seventy dollars.

Anyways, that’s the end of my first fashion roundup! Hopefully this post wasn’t too shitty and anyone who read this enjoyed it. Leave  comment below describing your favorite fashion finds.
