I remember just a couple years ago wondering what Fashion Nova was, and if I would like their stuff since I’m not thick (I thought maybe I wouldn’t fill out the things quite the same as their models.) It turns out that pretty much all their products are comfortable, super cute, and on trend. What’s not to love?
This seductive ribbed two piece is a heavy polyester and spandex mix, so it’s very stretchy and feels good. Doesn’t look like it would be that comfy, I know. The edges of the fabric are staggered/frayed like points or teeth, making for a punky look. There are buckles for decoration on the arm cuffs, and the belt around the waist actually fastens tight enough to keep it in place. The only negative is that it’s pretty short!
I’ve been wanting a dress with clear straps for a while, but didn’t get around to purchasing it until the pandemic had already begun. This means i didn’t get to wear this until recently, when I finally went out to a restaurant after 3 months of not going out to eat!
It’s actually a cuter dress than I gave it credit for when browsing Fashion Nova. It was on sale so I said what the heck. It is very similar to more expensive versions on Pretty Little Thing and maybe Meshki? These photos don’t really give it justice, it’s pretty much the perfect length and fit, and the straps are adjustable!!
The ones of me far away are with my Nikon, don’t know why it’s so fuzzy looking. Oh well. It’s good enough! The black tee shirt dress is Forever 21 and the camo corset belt is Fashion Nova. The belt is a little too lose and slides around, which is annoying. I like it but it’s so thick and has a zipper, so it doesn’t really suck you in like a traditional corset. At least it’s comfortable though. I have worn the dress so much, I’m surprised it hasn’t fallen a part! It’s a basic piece in my wardrobe. I will have to repurchase it before too long. You can wear it so many ways!
This little number is probably one of my recent faves, cause it includes pink and black (the best colors ever), shows my midrift, and reminds me of retro chic even though it’s very modern. I didn’t really expect them to pair together so well but I’m glad they have. It’s totally a look that is screaming Marina and the diamond vibes as well as 60’s inspired majorette. That’s what I think at least. How cute!
The top is from the Amber x Meshki collection and the short shorts are by Pretty little thing! I would say that the top is kind of tight, the sleeves aren’t comfortable even though I ordered a size larger than usual! The shorts are almost too tight as well, I’m glad they unbutton because there’s no way they would fit if I couldn’t undo them. So maybe order a size up on both of those sites.
This is a top I got at Christmas this year. I donned this when we went out on Super bowl Sunday. I did get a few head turns. These pants are rather old but they’re such a statement piece that there’s no way I would part with them! Same with the boots, I have honestly re-bought these ones because they are my all time faves, by A.N.A. They are biker chic, but also dressy and have a high heel – just perfect!
A month ago I went to Disney World with my boo, our first trip together even though we have been together forever. It was awesome to say the least! I didn’t quite know what to expect since I hadn’t stepped foot on the campus since I was 3!! It was a great treat. 😊😊😊
Once we got off the plane, we already had fun stuff planned! We went to Disney Springs to hang out and go to shops, and there were tons of shops and food places. Oakley, Coach, Pandora, just to name a few. It’s the place to be for young adults in the area. We ate at a fancy restaurant called the BOATHOUSE Dinner, which was nice and we ate outside, watching boats go by. The waiter was very cool, and the honey rolls of bread appetizer was to die for…. I loved it and I’m not even a bread person.
The first day (actually entering the parks, I mean) we checked out Animal kingdom, which might just be my fave. of the parks due to all the chill animal stuff. I really didn’t know how big the parks would be and this kingdom was one of the larger, spread out ones; it was pretty easy to get turned around in this one. There were all kinds of stuffed animals, Pocahontas stuff, Simba merch, and a nice restaurant called the Rainforest Cafe. We rode an uber scary water ride called Forbidden Everest, I think. It has a yeti theme and went up, down, backwards, etc. We did the Killamanjaro bus ride, where the animals were so close, it was epic! The Kali rapids ride had a few nice splashes but nothing as crazy as the first ride. That night we got to view a light show, which was very easy on the peepers.
On the second day, we ventured to the romantic, girly-princess, OG park: The Magical Kingdom. This is the place that was so crowded, people were laying in the grass, shoulder to shoulder, crowded. Elsa, Anna, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie, and Mickey were singing and dancing to “Let it go” and other songs which I can’t recall atm. The shops had gorgeous Dooney and Bourke handbags, Christmas ornaments, kitchen decor, and fancy dresses. We participated in the Haunted mansion, pirates of the Caribbean, a carousel, and rode a tripple decker steamboat! It was the most beautiful. We had a fantastic late lunch in the crystal palace, where the food was the best out of all the food around there and we got to meet Winnie the Pooh and friends!!!! This was definitely my favorite part of the whole trip!!!!!! 🥰🥰🥰
The third and final day of the trip was spent split between Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. The buses we rode this day were more convoluted or frustrating to figure out which route to partake, so we ended up taking a skyline at some point and I don’t remember it all, but we figured it out somehow. We were first in EPCOT, where we saw the Canada and England themed places, but unfortunately it rained VERY HARD, and we were soaking wet, even though I had a raincoat. (At least I got to see Alice in wonderland, and a very tiny Minnie and Mickey as well. Some of the mascots are bigger than others.) So I bought a heavier raincoat and we shivered the rest of the day, because we didn’t want to go back to the hotel, or else we would miss all of our rides and food we had planned. It was low-key miserable to have soaking wet socks and shoes for seven hours, but I lived. We rode the Soarin ride Which had different aromas you could smell along with virtual reality scenes. We also did space mountain which was pretty terrifying.. felt very fast and I closed my eyes every time I got dizzy. Our other fast pass was cancelled though due to the rain so we went ahead and left, going to Hollywood studios next, which was the smallest park to me. We ate at a 50’s style restaurant that had good food but small portions and the people were sassy because that was just the aesthetic of the vintage diner, but don’t ask me why! It was alright but I don’t think I would eat there again. I wish we had more time in that day to check out more of EPCOT, guess we will just have to travel there another time!
The Double Tree hotel was absolutely awesome! We got free water and cookies (apparently they gave out cookies at night, but we were never hungry at that time), our room was extra purified with a special humidifier, we chilled in the hot tub a couple times, and there were stores inside. There was also a grand entrance which contained a giant Christmas tree and smelled heavenly like cinnamon. The food was great at the hotel. The breakfast and dinner were honestly impeccable. All the staff were A plus people that you wanted to put in your pocket and carry home! I wish I lived there.
I got this awesome coat at Target recently. It was on sale, it has pockets, and it’s super soft! I was not sure it would be my style, but it’s definitely my fave piece of outerwear. Hopefully it’s not too hippy dippy trippy- something I just try to avoid cause it’s not me. I was surprised at how warm and soft it is, but I wish it zipped or buttoned up because then I could wear it in really cold temps. It’s by Wild Fable. The sock boots are from Aldo, and the dusty rose head wrap is Victoria’s secret.
