I wore white after Labor Day.
Born and raised in Vancouver in the 90s, I was obviously a fan of the Vancouver Grizzlies basketball team (now the Grizzlies are in Memphis). Recently, I’ve noticed tons of people wearing “vintage” Vancouver Grizzlies hats and jerseys and Grizzlies apparel has randomly become the cool thing to have. I was able to get my hands on a jersey and a hat which I am so stoked about! Check it out below.
I love to constantly change up my nails color and design. A quick and easy way to do little designs is to draw on top of your polish with Sharpies!
I have a huge obsession with t-shirts (so much so that my roommate makes fun of me). This obsession probably stems from the fact that I would live in pajamas if it wasn’t frowned upon in our society… Anyways, I do have to dress myself properly sometimes but love keeping t-shirts as a staple in outfits. Check out some inspiration below on how to wear t-shirts as an acceptable looking human.
Pair with a bright maxi skirt
Add some serious bling
Dress it up with a pencil skirt or embellished skirt
Style with fancy pants and heels
Tuck it in to a short leather skirt
Wear under a colorful blazer
(My friend Aziza!)
Rock a crop top with some serious abs (FML)
As all of you have probably heard, Oprah recently was denied the chance to look at a $38,000 bag in Zurich. Everyone is claiming that it was an act of racism. I don’t really know what happened and haven’t been paying too much attention to this but an article on The Business of Fashion, The Age of Irresponsible Excess, has brought up another issue: the fact that a handbag can cost $38,000 and no one seems to care.
While I was studying at Parsons, we talked a lot about conspicuous consumption which is essentially when people purchase super expensive items just to publicly show their wealth. This has become such a norm in our society that the price of the bag in this Oprah situation doesn’t really seem have any relevance.
The fashion industry continues to fuel the desire for these extraordinarily expensive items and the super wealthy continue to buy into this game. How expensive does a bag have to get for people to be alarmed at what designers are charging for clothes and accessories? Has the fashion industry become a bubble that is destined to burst or will it grow exponentially?
