I recently fell in love with the threadpic designer and wanted to share her with all of you to highlight some women designers. This (and picrel) comes from Louise Clark's "Abstract Romanticism" collection. She is a UK-based designer who I sincerely hope gets the recognition she deserves! I think she's working for ASOS now, but in the future I hope she gets to make more collections. I love her feminine and modern silhouettes.

Is there a name for this type of bag? I like purses with short top handles, crossbody straps, and most importantly: top zop opening into abyss which holds a lot more than you'd think.

I have one just like the bottom bag, it was called a satchel. I'm not sure that would refine searches enough though.

No. 327229

The lace + denim combo makes it look like some shabby chic DIY abomination I'd have made in 2013, but you know what? If you're going for that old school gyaru look, it might just work. I used to see so many similar skirts in Popteen back in the day.

No. 327402

Nta but that skirt looks like a piece of clothing a middle schooler who can't dress herself would pick. If you're a literal woman, wearing that type of shit makes you look trashy and weird. Same as a 18+ yo dude wearing an anime shirt, it's cringy on a child but it's even worse on an adult.

I have the bottom bag too! Fossil Sydney Satchel, right? I LOVE mine in hunter green from a few years ago but I recently bought one in black and the quality is literally half or less of the green one. What gives? Is the black one maybe an outlet version or something? This is what prompted me to ask about the name of this type of bag- I was looking for a better alternative to the Sydney & "satchel" was conjuring a lot of structured school/work-type satchels (which are super cute but I love slouchy leather). I also really wish the black and the hunter green Sydney came with silver-toned hardware but alas… What color do you have it in nonna? Side note I love how far down the zipper goes on the sides, it's so easy to find stuff in the abyss because it opens SO wide.

>Boston bag

Zillenial here, born in 1998. My clothes feel outdated, and I’m really loving the casual “zoomer style”, especially the more relaxed office looks. I feel lost. While I love the new fashion trends, I have no idea what staples to buy or how to style the new shit. I’m used to wearing dresses with tights, loafers and blazers, but I’m looking for sneakers, dresses, pants etc. that don’t feel outdated, and trying to figure out how to style crop tops correctly

Can someone help me? What staple Gen z pieces should I buy, and how should I style them?

I pretty much wear nothing but lace up boots. Ankle boots, boots that come up to the knee, and everything in between. I have boots with flat soles for subdued looks and walking long distances, boots with elegant heels for classy outfits, boots with chunky platforms for more alternative looks. They're so comfortable and I love how they look, I'd have no idea what to wear on my feet if it weren't for boots. During summertime it can get a bit hot and may look off with summery outfits but honestly I just power through it anyway because I hate sandals.

This only looks cute on petite and/or very thin girls, on everyone else it looks off. I don't think it's cute though. It would've been okay without the bib.

If it's obvious you're keeping it unbuttoned because it's too tight you should give it away, otherwise a white tank top is fine.

Does anyone recognize exactly what Charlotte is wearing on her head in this pic? It looks too soft and stretchy to be a cotton bandana.

Checked out Only and the clothes look so nice, I can't believe I haven't heard of them before! The only thing I'm worried about is their reviews look quite mixed, especially in the UK (where I am) for returns and orders not arriving. Have you tried their pants or just shirts? I like picrel but I'm extra cautious buying pants online, especially considering the reviews.

COS looks really great! Their T-shirts are the exact fit and colours I'm looking for as well, if a bit pricey but they look good quality. Reviews on customer service look mixed but reviews on the clothes say they're good, plus there's a physical store not far from me! I'll go next time I get paid.
I've bought from Uniqlo before and still love what I have but I've heard that they've gone down in quality recently, when did you buy from them nona?
Thank you all for your recommendations! If I buy from any I'll check back in with a review.

Neutral GGs, or the dolce vita dolen sneaker would be cute for every day.

I feel like it's bullshit I should try to compress my boobs uncomfortably just to fit into clothes better. I just want clothes that are tailored for a bigger bust.

No. 328483

You could try just finding vintage dresses or shopping from those clothing stores who still make 1950s style clothing. My boobs are decently large but aren’t huge, but I have a pretty dramatic waist to hip ratio, and I find that most mainstream brand clothing is tight on my hips but loose around my waist and stomach, and that most coats and dresses are designed to be straight up and down which is very unflattering on me. I need clothing that nips in at the waist but has enough space for my hips, and it’s very hard to find fashion like that nowadays unless you look for specific stores. Even ‘curvy’ stores aren’t really for curvy women, just for plus size women, and they often feature a lot of the same unflattering straight up and down cuts. It’s definitely a struggle to find well fitting fashion if you have an hourglass or busty build.

No. 328484

Yeah it's kind of bullshit since supposedly this is a desirable figure to have, but the gay men who make fashion don't give a shit about that. Maybe I just have to learn how to sew my own clothes…

No. 328510

Fashion isn't made for whatever's the desireable figure, almost everything is made based on confection sizes created decades ago which hasn't been updated to fatter 21st century bodies nor does it take various body types /variation into account. That's part of why store bought fashion looks bad.

No. 328521

is 47€ too much for a dress? I found a cute dress in a vintage clothing store that usually sells high quality items. But this dress didn't have a tag that said it's brand or what material it was made off so I don't know what they based the price on. It's most likely handmade. I got it since it was cute and looked good on me and I usually struggle with finding summer dresses that suits my body. Its not going to ruin my budget but I have never spend so much on a dress so I feel guilty for buying it

No. 328527

Tailor your clothes. Buy a bigger size and just have some darts added where needed. If you're not in a huge city it shouldn't be too expensive.

No. 328528

It's not some kind of gay conspiracy, most women just don't have an extreme body shape. Straight up and down cuts are easier to produce and sell, and they fit most of the population. That's why they're the most common.

I think 47 euro for a complete outfit basically is fine.

I had to do a conversion to Burgcoin and $50 for a handmade dress is a steal nonna. Of course, it depends on your particular financial situation since everything is relative after all, but assuming you make an average amount of money, I think the price is good. Even if it's not handmade, 47€ is a good price for a dress, aka a whole outfit basically, like other nonna said. Don't feel guilty. Walking into a vintage clothing store on a whim and finding a piece that ~speaks to me~ is such a treasured experience for me. I wish we could see it! Can you describe it? I'm so curious now after typing this out lol

No. 328543

Came back to say I returned this. For context, my most used bags are a Fossil leather bag, a canvas messenger bag, and a nylon Kate Spade bag. The quality of this purse was decent but it was too big for my small frame, and I noticed in one of the reviews, someone posted that the black top layer of the leather wore off after a year. What the fuck. So I went to Etsy where I can get a beautiful custom leather bag for under $180, I feel like I discovered a lifehack.

Also this was me and I went to Etsy for this also and bought a gorgeous hand-dyed cotton bandana with these colors to recreate this look.

What kind of shoes are seen as "sexy" or "dressed up" that don't have heels? I'm tall for a female (5'8) and unfortunately most males in my country are manlets, so I cant wear heels.

I have a black minidress that's kinda ruffled and has a little bow in the front, it's so so pretty but none of my shoes match it's sexy vibe. What shoes would I wear with it that don't have a heel? Like to an upmarket restaurant or club?

I'm 22 and a bit immature acting and looks-wise, so please don't tell me to wear pointed-toe shoes, as I really don't want to look like I'm playing dress up in my granny's clothes.

As in, cheaper leather pieces which will be cut and sewn to my specifications? That doesn't sound terrible tbh because the Etsy leather (bottom picrel) looks nicer than the Amazon leather (top picrel) and I will get a custom size (and engraving). However I am realizing right now that I actually have no idea how to tell if leather is shitty, unless it's obviously pleather or really thin. I purchased a leather planner cover made by a Chinese guy on Etsy that definitely isn't plastic-coated leather, it seems pretty nice and like it'll last. The handbag I'm looking at (similar to bottom picrel) looks like the same kind of leather. I'll be looking into it myself, but do you have any characteristics I should look out for in quality leather? Does the Etsy bag leather look crappy to you? Thanks in advance anyone reading this

Any nonas know how to dress in 50s style clothing without looking costumey and tacky? I’m trying to find inspo. I keep finding cute pieces but then I think damn I would feel pretty dumb in public wearing this. And I also feel like the 50s nostalgia period already had its revival in the mid 2000s to early 2010s and it looks kind of tacky now. I tried to fight it for a long time but I’ve accepted this is pretty much the only aesthetic that really suits me. I do like the fashion and media of that period a lot and it’s my guilty pleasure, but I don’t wanna look like some corny tumblrina in cat eye glasses.

Leather anons itt have been very helpful already but if someone can offer specific assistance it'd be appreciated, am looking to invest in a sturdy leather jacket but I don't like 80s cuts (too unisex and boxy) so vintage is off the table unfortunately. A lot of the modern ones are lined with polyester too which seems to cheapen them and would maybe be gross/sweaty? From reading online many people recommend Allsaints, anybody have other recs? I understand good jackets can run $2,000+ but I don't want a rag that's going to flake and fall apart in a year. Picrel is the kind of silhouette I'm going for.

If we're being brutally honest, is it okay and not cringe for a 22 yr old to buy trendy clothes? I know some trends are worn mostly by kids and teenagers, but there's some I really like, like baggy jeans, plaid skirts, and corset tops. Is that cringe for a grown adult with a job and a kid (me) to do?

No. 329856

If we’re being real, all fashion is cringe in some way. 22 is very young, even if they’re “youthful” trends I’m sure you can pull it off. Wear whatever you want at home and on your days off. Wear work clothes at work if you’re worried about your image (if it’s the kind of job where that matters)

late response but there's a lot of fashion from the 50s that isn't your stereotypical "pin-up reddit polyamory-core" with bold tacky patterns and hoop skirts. I tend to dress a bit more androgynously with pants that fit round the waist but are looser around the leg. Pair them with neutral blouses, sweater vests, coats, etc, I'd just stick to colours that suit you but in plain tones or less gaudy patterns.
Shoes wise you can opt for heels, flats or loafers.
If you dress a bit more feminine pencil skirts are a great option that you can pair with the same blouses. The key to looking most authentic to the decade is through choosing items of clothing that are the desired shape. If you look at shapes from that area you'll notice distinct ways the body is flattered and curved. Picrel is some examples I pulled off pinterest, both from the era and more modern looks that suit the decade.

Hi nonnies! Low fashion ?, I have a pretty casual street style but I realized the sporty Nike black and white sneakers I wear look really awkward unless I wear sneakers or joggers with them.

sheer doesn't hide much. why risk showing the scars with over-the-knee sheers when you could get 60-80 denier tights and enjoy skirts worry-free? you can also get flesh-toned opaque tights and layer thigh highs of your choice over them (might get a little hot though).
a sheer with a pattern can work well and would be cooler in hot weather. I had picrel for a long time and something about the zig-zag hid all my body hair and any veins or scars but it was practically sheer. chevron pattern sheers are also nice.

No. 330970

Start slowly, perhaps start with just simple but dainty jewelry like earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. Also maybe grow your hair out because it's really difficult and rare to look feminine/pretty with short hair, especially since you have to wear glasses too.

You need to let your eyes adjust to your new feminine, cute style, so don't rush into it and replace your entire closet. Buy one or two things a month like a dress here, a pair of shoes there, a necklace there, etc. Also look on Pinterest for fashion/hair/accessory inspo and save your favourite pics. Tiktok has good inspo too but if you're looking more for the ultra feminine aesthetic without annoying voices and ads and lying, pinterest is your place.

Try going for soft, muted, pastel colours, and also colors like red, pink, and white. Clothes that accentuate your waist, boobs, and bum. Invest in a pushup bra too if you want to look more sexily feminine. Buy a pair of jeans and pair them with a skinny belt or a silver chain belt, any cute girly top you want, and white sneakers.

Aesthetics you can look into for good inspo would be cottagecore (a classic), old money woman, streetwear, coquette/dollette (just look past some of the weirdness bc they have some good looks), ballet core, bimbocore, soft girl, etc.

Try to avoid black sneakers because no woman has ever looked cute, dainty, or feminine in black sneakers. Avoid very baggy outfits until you have built a good closet because you might come across as even less stylish or kinda lazy. Avoid dressing in all black as well, unless it's specifically a very feminine silhouette.

I also look on Shein for ideas on what I'd actually buy and then find something similar at a local clothing store and buy it there.

Also! Get your clothes tailored! It's not expensive and it's a kind of life hack that the ultra rich do to make their clothes look like they were designed for them. It enhance your looks so much, I do it and it's so worth it.

This is just my own opinion and I hope this helps! I have gotten compliments/comments on my own femininity, cuteness, and fashion sense so I'm speaking from experience

Nonnie, short hair can be very feminine and delicate. I can make some silly outfits for you as a reference if you want. Like, idk, summer, spring, autumn and winter outfits and formal occasions, it will take me a while, but I think they could be nice.

No. 330994

using feminine 50x you sound like a troon. going straight into suggesting anon buy jewelry and start dressing super feminine and even suggesting colors is bizarre, you know nothing about her. cottagecore is not "classic" it's a current trend aesthetic. i like some aspects myself but classic, no.

figure out what silhouettes/clothing fits you like and even more importantly don't, as well as start looking for fashion inspo. see what you own already and what you gravitate towards, and what your needs are. clothing first and foremost is a tool. other people will suggest insta or image-based sites but i like youtube for fashion talk because you actually see people move while in the clothes they wear.

i personally found kibbe and color season analysis helpful in thinking about what i like, but if that's overwhelming to think about don't worry about them. i'm not a super fashionable person, i was just sick of buying clothes i regretted and disliked.

you want to build a closet of clothes you enjoy wearing, fit your needs, and look good together. i personally found the idea of everyone having different closet staples a very helpful idea: everyone suggests having a plain white t-shirt for layering, but then I realized I dislike layering so that wasn't helpful advice. start thinking about what staple tops and bottoms you would benefit from and could use as the basis for multiple outfits.

if you have short hair leaning into a more masculine or androgynous style might be nice. but you can do feminine looks with short hair too.

I actually accept that gasp beauty and style are subjective… Imagine that. That being said I would love to know more about your style since I don't really personally identify with a lot of the fashion choices here either.

This is good advice for the direction the original nonny want to take her style in. I forgot we're not allowed to refer to femininity anymore though so fuck you I guess!

I'm toayrt, I typically gravitate towards youtubers and what they wear because they seem more real to me kek

I relate to this a lot. I would buy clothes and I end up not wearing them because I simply didn't like it. It's weird. I can see that it's a nice piece of clothing, but I either lack the skills or interest in actually wearing it.

Ty nonny, I appreciate the advice. I do want to appear more feminine and grow my hair. I kept cutting my hair short because I realized that I didn't like myself and I thought if I cut my hair short, maybe I'd feel better. But, I don't. To keep the impulse at bay, I was thinking to express myself with fashion. However, fashion is kind of complicated because everyone has their own style and I think it's mostly subjective but I think there's concepts that generally define a well put together outfit even if it's something I personally wouldn't wear. So I guess what I'm saying is that I don't have a style I particularly like yet

No. 331412

Not an expert by any means but I tried once and the dye leaked out in the pool kek so maybe wash it real good first. The sarong. Also its impossible to keep on, and a bit of a drowning hazard. I used to be a lifeguard and I would not have been able to 'allow' you in the pool with it on because it can tangle up on you and hold water that makes it hard to swim. 9.5 times out of 10 it wouldnt be an issue but one guy wearing a long thin dress type thing (sorry for the disrespect I know it is a religious/cultural thing but idk the name kek) he was allowed to keep it on due to the religion/culture exemption but dove in the deep end and had to be resued due to the sudden weight increase of wet fabric. If you are swimming at a beach or something I doubt its an issue for the 'avoiding lawsuit' perspective so by all means. I think it will be annoying and hard to keep on and move around in but if you are retarded wearing a sarong in water isnt wrong

mostly nylon and polyester with elastane (Lycra, Spandex are just brand names), as cotton and similar fibres would soak up too much water while needing a lot more time to dry and they might lose their shape over time. You can leave the elastane out of the fabric when it's not a swimsuit and/or the piece has a wider fit. The shorts in the picture are a good material choice with polyester and elastane. Most sports wear should also be suitable as swimwear, as they are mostly made out of the same material and have the idea of fast drying behind them.

In 2023? It looks dated but personally I think this is way cuter and comfier than most of the trends rn. I just don't love the black + burgundy colour combination, I think defaulting to black + random colour is boring.

This looks like something I saw referenced here recently as a controversial outfit but it’s a nice outfit aside from the shoes

No. 331483

It was controversial solely because of the ugly purse and boots. I also think the skater skirt is a bit juvenile, I associate it with tweens/teens of the early 2010's.

I think it's cute. You can definitely tell what era this outfit was from, but it still doesn't look dated to me since it's composed of such basic, staple pieces. Imo if you got rid of the booties (which I personally actually think look fine) it would look more updated.

No. 331497

It's not ugly but it's super dated. Maybe individual pieces could work in a different outfit but as a whole look it's like a time capsule, all it's missing is a giant owl pendant and a burnt-looking instagram filter kek.

No. 331503

thank you so much for such a detailed reply! now i actually know what to look for. I did see some bathing shorts that was made out of cotton which I thought was a bit iffy so good to know I can avoid that
this is sort of similar to how i dress on work days I just use more colours and different shoes and bags. I think it's cute but I can see why other call it dated. But for me I consider it more casual than a fashion statement. its just a skirt + sweater most women already have it lying around so expecting women to never combine them is a bit much. I guess the silhouette would look less dated if it wasnt an a-line skirtin my opinion a-line skirt looks best and I cant wait for a comeback. Im personally not fond of the y2k look and i think its weird I know many who never dressed like that who immediately went out and bought a new wardrobe as soon as Y2K became trendy. I do agree with the other anons though it needs more color and different shoes. Also I think it would look better if the skirt was a bit longer

No. 331506

No. 331512

I agree with you. There is something so half-assed about it too. It looks very… childish? For lack of a better word. Not in that a literal child would wear it but more like no thought was put into making it cohesive. Change the skirt into something a tad longer and a bit less flared, change the ugly brown booties for something black, and ditch the ugly purse, and add minimal jewelry and I think it would look a LOT cuter.

No. 331514

I think all the discussion around that outfit is just the millenial/zoomer divide. If you're a millenial, you probably remember when that was trendy or still dress like that so of course you'll like it more than those of us who were too young to wear it back then.
Did I touch a nerve? I don't like the stuff you linked either. There's a lot of middle ground between y2k trendy shit and polyvore outfits though.
galaxy leggings, mustache pendants and all the neon 80's inspired shit from back then haunt me just as much as whatever the kids are doing today tbh. I like the look of a lot of styles from then like twee and tumblr grunge but it wasn't perfect kek

No. 331526

i think this is cute and prefer it over >>331472 because it looks less.. normie? like wearing the burgundy jumper outfit would be an attempt at looking put together and it just doesn't work now, whereas your example is dreamier and has a specific vibe that just carries over better.

That specific black/brown/burgundy color scheme is really dated, literally even just going monochrome black would update it passably. As a geriatric zoomer, that burgundy color—or “marsala”— was literally everywhere for like 4 years, it started trending during the seafoam green and coral era and then peaked in 2014/15. It’s the millennial pink of the mid 2010s.
Trash the boots like everyone else is saying and get black chunky or dainty heeled balletcore style shoes. Match the bag to the black shoes. That’s just if we want to keep the core vibe of the outfit untouched. honestly skater skirts and cropped sweaters are both fine separately but together it does come across as if you’re wearing a millennial costume. Your best bet is probably to buy an uncropped sweater and drop the waist of the look by keeping it untucked or wear the cropped sweater with baggy high rise or midrise jeans. Other denim styles are on trend now as well but low rise bootcut for example would not work with a loose cropped sweater like this on 99.9% of people because it will visually fridge them

It was a very common and presentable look then, it might not be as common now, but it remains presentable as it used to be. I never liked the trends from back then so I obviously don't like it that much, but it's not exactly an eyesore, it's okay really.

If I saw a woman wear this in 2023 I would just assume she's not very fashionable/up to date on current trends. But not everyone needs to be a style sperg, it looks very clean and put together, there is no real bad assumption to make about someone dressed like this, she doesn't look lazy or obnoxious or anything.

Granted I look nasty most of the time due to my current job, so everyone else looks like a shining aristocrat in comparison kek.

I can kind of picture them with khaki or light brown cargo pants, it would bring out the color and style nicely I think.

nta but as a zoomer, the general perception is that skater skirts are very synonymous with millenial/tumblr-era fashion. i think the last big boom of the cropped sweater was around the time that victoria's secret pink was popular iirc- 2018 at the LATEST, and even that was a cropped hoodie as supposed to an actual sweater; those died a lot earlier. cores might different in appearance, but they are by-and-large reflections of trends from now as supposed to 10 years ago. nobody's stopping you from keeping the skinny jeans, but the styling in that photo, especially the skater skirt with the black tights, isn't currently relevant.

No. 332010

That was a rhetorical question anon. Still your answer is retarded, obviously it's a dated look and "not currently relevant" that doesn't make it a costume or costume-ish.

No. 332022

in the case of it being a costume, that particular preppy look with those particular pieces used is very hard to divorce from the trends of the tumblr era. to someone who doesn't usually wear that fashion, it reads more as a time capsule than something to emulate 1:1, similar to how a generic "80s costume" usually has big hair and lycra because thats what people remember. part of it has to do with the way its photographed, but part of it is just the contents of the fit. hope this helps.

this is the obvious answer but there do exist stores that are specialied in selling authentic vintage clothes from the 50-70. Though they are usually a bit pricey because finding clothes from the 50 that is still in a good condition today is hard. If you live in a big city or close to one there might be a store like this. Try searching for something along the lines of "vintage clothes [city name]" on google. Etsy also has a market for vintage clothes so try looking there. Just remember to set the item type to vintage in the filters.
>I do like the fashion and media of that period
being familiar with the period is going to work in your favour if you want to by modern clothes meant to emulate the 50's since you will be able to see what actually looks authentic and what looks like poor imitations.

Sorry I can't say much for removing it nonita, but depending on when you wear the jeans you could try incorporating visible mending to cover it up? It's mostly used for actual tears in clothes and can sometimes look trashy if you don't do it right, but it's a cute way to make your clothes more unique and only requires basic sewing skills. Maybe as a last resort if you can't get the acrylic off? Good luck nonita, as a former art student my strategy for acrylic stains was hot water ASAP and pray.

Nowadays I try to primarily buy my clothes second hand. It makes it harder to follow trends and "forces" me to only look after clothes that suits my tastes. It's also easier to avoid going on a shopping spree when you buy second hand because finding stuff you like (and in your own size) is more difficult so it's feels more rewarding when you find something you like

I think you should just go for something that suits your face shape and feels comfortable, if you don't need to change your glasses frequently, there's really no point in going for something trendy. That being said, I like tortoiseshell pattern, not too bland, not too flashy, classic.

Just wear simple and modest stuff, nothing shiny, or neon, or with flowers or crazy patterns. Pick neutral colors (brown, beige, gray, white even but not too much white) or just black, simple and small accessories.
Preferably don’t wear tight clothes, you’re going to support someone who is grieving or you’re goin to grieve, not going to a catwalk or a bar, which means you should also avoid cutouts or low necklines.

What the heck do I wear to a funeral? It always seemed simple but now that I'm in this situation I have no idea what to buy. A long dress seems so formal but a short dress seems inappropriate. I don't really want to do pants because then I have to buy pants and a shirt when I could just buy a dress. Idk idk idk pls help nonnas. To be fair, I was surprised at the last funeral I went to because a lot of the women were wearing denim with blouses and heels. Idk maybe a flowy skirt and a blouse would be nice, I already have some heels that could go with that. What would you do? My only guidelines are that I'm short, so I like to honor the rule of thirds, and that makes some lengths of skirts/dresses and certain types of shoes look really dumpy. I do prefer a defined waist. I tend to dress "edgy" but that's not a big concern for a funeral tbh. This is not someone I was close with so I don't really need anything super duper comfy or anything like that.

Don’t buy this from Amazon but just get something like this and be done with it. You’re overthinking it. If you have to go shorter than this, wear opaque tights. Shoe doesn’t matter unless you’re standing for a long time or it’s an outdoor funeral, whatever black shoes you have is fine.

Think business/office wear but in black. Aim for covered knees and shoulders, which may mean incorporating tights, blazers, etc. Find something you could repurpose for a job interview or something similarly formal at a later date. You can't really go wrong with dressing "up" at a funeral but dressing down too much could be a bit of a faux pas even if you didn't know the person.

I would personally opt for a black shirt and trouser since it's easier to dress both pieces down for other more casual occasions.

No. 333573

This is my funeral uniform- literally any black dress in existence that isn't shorter than mid thigh, low cut, bodycon, or flashy. Heels (not super tall stilettos or platforms though), nice sandals/flats. Maybe tights or a cardigan in a muted color if it'll be cold. I'm not super stylish though tbh and I thrift everything. Like other anon said go for business casual/nice brunch outfit but in black.

There is literally nothing easier than dressing for a funeral. Something black and modest, if a long dress is formal and a short dress is inappropriate… get a mid length dress. It seems like you're more worried about looking stylish than just dressing appropriately but you don't need to impress people who are busy mourning.

You could wear these. They're formal without being too formal + they're spooky and black which fits the theme. Buy some croc charms that are like knives, weapons, spooky stuff.

People are allowed to be sexy at funerals, it's not a crime. If showing cleavage and legs and being well dressed makes Anon feel better, she should do it. We all cope in different ways. I for one wore a black micro mini skirt with a cropped black tube top with a star in it made from those little fake diamonds. I was going for the y2k aesthetic and I pulled it off and it made me feel better about my aunt's passing. Yes I was showing a lot of skin but who cares.

How would I make this university-friendly? Specifically for my morning lectures. We aren't allowed to show huge amounts of cleavage due to a girl showing up in her bikini top and sweat pants after going to the beach before class. Kek. So I need to cover my tits up.

Atm I'm thinking of pairing it with my brown leather jacket, a black t shirt, and black kitten heels. Hair loose and a red hairband. Plain silver stud earrings. Is that fine or am I gonna make my lecturer blow his brains out haha?

Picrel isn't the exact dress I have but almost the same. Advice please yall.

Kitten heels? Really?

assuming the dress isn't ultra short that sounds like a perfectly reasonable outfit, and if the dress IS pretty short maybe add black tights? The tshirt underneath is really the key thing making it acceptable. I really like the tshirt under a strappy dress look, I feel like you see it a lot in kfashion. If you want even more of a dressed-down vibe for uni I'd consider maybe something like a short boot instead of any sort of heel

I think that's a bit prudish tbh, you're going to university not church. Pair it with stiletto heels and ditch the jacket.

No. 333954

Is this the same fabric your dress is made of? Because there's no way you can make that texture university-friendly. The fake-leather jeans strike me as an example of this. Fake leather, latex or PVC are too dressy imho. You would have to combine your dress with a lot of darker stuff, as you have already suggested, and I don't think that would do any justice to the dress. I'd save the dress for nightlife ocassions, anon.

Aah tbh I'm not sure what material it is. My ex got it for me from his trip to Amsterdam. It kinda smells like plastic or rubber? Almost like the way a Barbie smells, hopefully someone knows what I mean. It's definitely not genuine leather unfortunately. My ex was a cheap ass.

I’m talking looking like they just left work at a cheap strip club sort of outfits. They’ll walk into a crack den area strutting their asses off like they’re the hottest shit on earth - in the most dangerous, filthy places possible.

Eh not so much dressing for hot weather or wearing something short or with cleavage - I’m talking about full blown stripper outfits, and the girls I’m referencing are walking around at night (in the cold) wearing these outfits too, picrel. Men should have self control, but where I live it’s extremely dangerous for everyone (not just women) and I still see young girls out on the street dressed this way. There’s a lot of rape and SA in my city. I don’t know why they choose to present themselves this way for seemingly no reason at all, while doing casual things like grocery shopping or walking to a 7/11.

I’m a millennial and I like Gen Z fashion (going to echo other people in that idk what Gen Alpha fashion is because I thought they were children). I think there was a ton of bad millennial fashion that I hate looking back on, and some of it is currently being regurgitated.

Going to double post because I ran out of time, but I wanted to add that the one thing I hate about both Millennial and Gen Z fashion has been the reliance on fast fashion, be it through the mall or through places like shein.

Also, for the love of god the word “core” is so irritating. I can’t understand why zoomers are so insistent on microlabeling every look.

I think it'll be fine with the bra straps showing. It sounds cute that the straps are embroidered too! Have you thought about using boob tape? Picrel. I've seen a lot of large-chested women swear by it. I've used it two times and it was very comfortable. The hardest part was removing the tape so be prepared to use oil in the shower to remove them. Slightly OT but I get really sore breasts during PMS and I taped my chest up so that the most painful parts of my breasts were supported and it felt SO GOOD.

I’m sad to see it’s the same in Asia now too. China and Korea are terrible for blink of an eye trends and fast fashion.

Back in the day, like late 90s to early 2010s, Japanese street fashion was much more influential imo, lot of Japanese designers and clothing stores, even the kinda mainstream ones, would only release very limited batches of certain clothes for a short time so less than 100 or 1000 people in the world would own a certain piece.

After Korea and kpop started becoming more globally relevant than Japan I noticed in Tokyo a lot of young women had started wearing really samey kpop type fashion that was very basic bitch, plain and clearly mass produced. It sucked seeing all the diversity and originality of clothing starting to go out of the window.

It wasn’t too long before the same thing started happening in the west as more and more westerners began buying fast fashion from Chinese online stores, and here we are. Sad.

70s had some interesting fashion which got drowned out by tacky garbage, 90s was cool too due to minimalism and 60s/70s revivals coming in many forms and making some cuts and garments actually nicer and more bearable than in original era (especially 70s stuff). But I still find that 60s was last truly great decade for fashion. 70s were start of fall down, synthetics appeared on wide scale and it became more mass market and built foundation for fast fashion.
I'm a zoomer who hates both zoomer and millennial fashion, but I find millennial fashion more bearable. Gen X was last generation to have good fashion and revive older decades with own spin on them. Millennial 80s/90s grunge revival was interesting more than zoomer shit though because it was more unique compared to zoom zooms just carbon copying few cherrypicked styles in most pornified manner.
I saw girls even younger than this dressing trashily, even in normal areas of my city which is a pretty much small quiet eastern european city. I even saw girls as young as 11-13 wearing pornified """y2k""" shein shit with bra tops… It's just so terrible

Opinions on the Kibbe body type chart? Would this be good as a starting guideline to find clothes that fit you? (I dress like shit)

No. 334367

It's notoriously vague and you have to figure your type out by yourself but I personally like it a lot. It unironically helped me see through my body dysmorphia and realize why certain kinds of clothes look terrible on me and what is more flattering.
A lot of guides out there just have shitty trendy Amazon clothes as outfit suggestions but if you can look at the preferred cut and color it's a great starting point for thrifting.

No. 334368

it's a good phase to go through and test out some outfits if you need something to channel your autism into. i got caught up in it because i'm very rigidly science oriented even if i don't believe fashion is about categories and tbh it's kinda fun. i prefer being an autist about colors though.

No. 334369

I like Kibbe and it has helped me, but I stay away from Kibbe Youtubers and the man himself. It's really helpful for pinpointing why some clothes look like shit on you even though they fit your body well, which has been my biggest issue.

No. 334370

Some people swear by kibbe but I think it's pretty dumb personally, it's just the inconsistent theory of some moid. Plus the fashion recommendations tend to be kind of soccer mom-core. I guess if you have zero awareness of your body shape it could be a decent start but you'd be even better off just taking a full-body picture to get a good idea of your general shape (apple, pear, etc) and trying on a bunch of clothes to see which make you look and feel the best. I dress nothing like how my kibbe type is "supposed" to dress but I still look cute kek

No. 334371

I think there's some (some) truth to those guidelines but if you have no sense of style you're not going to get it from abstract guidelines and looking at moodboards with outfits mostly outdated and/or for older women. From what I've read this system isn't really for 20s/30s or so women (which I assume you are)

No. 334375

I only looked into it superficially, at first I found it nice because it took into consideration more things than just hip-waist-bust, that affect how your body as a whole look in the end, e.g. head size and shoulders size making you look shorter or taller. But then when it started talking about how "this type wears this, that type was that", it was too restrictive for me and I lost interest. And the pure natural, which was my type, got removed, but I can't be arsed to figure out what I am now, I really feel like I fit the pure natural way more than the other two. And relating to my first point, in regards to height, I don't get why at first have a more holistic approach to body proportions, then say "but only people this tall is this type", it just feels like its defeating the whole point, because the way your proportions work might make you look more or less elongated regardless of how tall you actually are. I hope I made sense, I feel like I'm rambling.

This is most likely bait but sometimes I feel bad for Gen Z because the trends move so quickly that everything has to be made as cheaply as possible for when it’s inevitably disposed of. Of course millennials had tons of blunders but at least they didn’t have sites like Shein and DollsKill to churn out a bunch of poorly sewn garments. (And I’m talking about average consumers not rich people or celebrities who have unlimited access to designer clothing)

No. 334479

we definitely had shein and dollskill back in the early 10s tho, and other similiar websites I don't recall the name of that would be advertised by fashion bloggers. I specifically remember ordering from shein (still called sheinside) because some blogger had ordered a dress from there. We also bought plenty of shit from china from ebay. But it didn't have the sheer matnitude it has today, that's true.

No. 334602

do you mean Romwe? I remember ordering from them, today they are just a part of Shein. The problem today is, you can return your stuff, when I ordered something from a Chinese shop, I had to keep or resell it, with Shein, you just return what doesn't fit and most things won't fit.

I've been wanting this duster from The Hippie Shake as a light summer overcoat (white wool seems smart) but it's sold out in my size (14-16). I'm on the fence about getting the 10-12 though, I don't know if my shoulders (16") would fit what it says (15.2"). I have a thick coat of theirs I was gifted that is definitely a small that fits fine, but I'm not sure if it's a good gamble. I've done alterations before but not on dusters.

This brand is kind of trash anon. I have been marketing-baited into buying their pieces over the years and it's all fast fashion quality, even their cotton garments feel like synthetics or are just janky. It's also all extremely derivative. Just buy real vintage.

No. 334823

It just sold out anyway so I think I'm gonna look elsewhere. I've only ever spent money on a supposedly cotton shawl from them and it honestly feels synthetic (but looked good enough). I just moved back to my home country though and not sure where to go for real vintage, I get the feeling a lot of thrift stores here are marking things way up considering what they feel like just because it's trendy at the moment.

No. 334884

I don't think you'll look like a whore at all but this is going to be very impractical for hiking in the African heat. You want light coloured and loose clothing, as well as covering your legs up to your ankles or calves to keep the bugs off. Speaking of which, get your vaccinations in order and get checked thoroughly every night before showering. I would also recommend a bucket hat over a cap because it covers more from the sun.

Saying cheap is relative since they were still hundreds, but I found these being sold on Ebay by some kind of liquidation/store sample seller. I waited for them to make me an offer on the listings, then counter-offered for half of what they initially offered and they accepted, so there's clearly insane markups. The local jewelry boutique that sells this brand in my area sells similar stuff for double what I paid. And I get it, they have to pay their staff and rent, but it's still a little pricey for me unless there's something I really love.
I don't mind secondhand jewelry. I just clean the pieces after I get them. Better to save up for a beautiful secondhand piece than wasting money on cheap garbage that will just end up in a landfill.

For reference I am 5'0" 105lbs. I found a pair of Frye Pippa Short Boots at the flea market this weekend. The fit feels fine, but they are technically a half-size too large and I feel like they look proportionally large on me. I picked out the Pippas because they give me the same vibe as the Engineer Boot, but a little less overwhelming on my smaller frame. (Picrel is a little bit misleading because of the scale of the photos. The Pippas are smaller all around. I included the measurements to hopefully help with that.)
I'm generally going for a Hellbilly/Rob Zombie/Goth Cowgirl look (cringing at having to describe my style this way but it's true), but pretty simplified as I don't want to do too much- I always feel like the center of attention if I dress up too much and I feel like an asshole. I digress. The boots are going to help me achieve this look. The main features being the hardware and the loose/large fit of the shaft in comparison to my leg.
I can't decide if I should get rid of the Pippas and go for the Engineer Boot, since that's really what I want. What if the Engineer Boots are an awkward height though, and it turns out I should have stuck with the Pippas? And if I do stick with the Pippas, I'd want to get them in my correct size, so I'd have to buy another pair and sell the old ones. I like that the Engineer Boot has more hardware than the Pippa, though. I love hardware. The issue is that I'm buying this stuff secondhand, so I may not be able to make returns based on size/fit satisfaction.
Here's a post I made in the Kibbe thread that shows me wearing a boot that I love with an 8" tall shaft and a 12.5" shaft circumference: >>>/g/315293. What should I do?
Also I think I want them in brown because they'll look better on my stubby legs when I'm not wearing long pants, but the Pippas lose the edgy, moto/goth cowgirl effect in the brown color imo. I also realized halfway through this journey that I'd like heavy treads on the sole of the shoe, as it adds to the edgy element. I've been considering getting the Pippas resoled with heavy treads, since Frye boots are able to be resoled. (Is that possible?). I feel like they look like Chelsea boots from the front because of the thin look of the sole, as opposed to big rubber treads. I hate Chelsea boots.
I really wrote this out to organize my thoughts more than anything but I'd love some input. This is such a clusterfuck and I'm in the "manic" stage of my cycle so it's all I can think about kek

It does lean costum-y imo though I personally think it comes across more faux preppy than french maid-ish. I also don't like the length of the sleeves but that's another matter. Idk if the two pieces are attached (you never know with shein) or if you can remove the blouse because I think it'd be okay with a different blouse.

why would your friend think that? the dress reminds me of pic rel

No. 336677

Rather than get it from SheIn you could get those components from much better quality places and still create the same outfit. You want a button up strapped dress, a puffy sleeve top and pretty much anything can be used for the bow. It'd look 1000x better and then you could use those items of clothing for other outfits.

No. 336701

imo it's very cute but >>336677 is right, you could get better quality separates rather than a cheap onepiece. It doesn't look like fetish wear at all, it's a fairly popular style currently.

I've never ordered anything from this brand so idk what the quality is like, but I think you would like Sister Jane, I remember seeing a lot of cute blouses like this

No. 336702

I had a look at the customer pictures, don't buy it, it looks like a cheap costume. The fabric looks very cheap, thin and it seems to wrinkle fast. On most customers it looks too short and it seems that they forgot that women have a waist, on most people it looks way too straight, giving them a boxy figure. I would follow this advice >>336677 buy a dress (maybe sew buttons onto it, if it doesn't have any), a blouse and a bow and it will look way better and you aren't forced to wear all of that together all the time and can create new style with the pieces.

Are avant basics still acceptable to wear?

Or, to be more specific, does the house of sunny green dress (picrel) look outdated now that the microtrend with avant basics has passed?

I bought one secondhand recently and I didn't find out what it was until after i had already purchased it. I try not to let trends dictate what I wear but the idea of looking like I tried to follow a trend 3 years late bothers me as much as you would expect :/ I really love the way it looks on me so this has me pretty heartbroken.

Is it as bad as I'm worrying it is or am I overthinking it?(. :/)

Nonnas, be upfront with me, am I an idiot for buying this?
I've been mulling over it for a while and I'm a sucker for cute accessories, but at the end of the day it's basically a $50 teddy bear keychain made in China.
I just think it would look so cute attached to my bags!
It's the leopard teddy bear keychain by Vaquera.

honestly i have 50$ worth of tiny bottle charms on my purse so I probably don't have room to talk, but its pretty cute. if you think its cute then don't feel bad. it's probably like a 10$ value in materials but the leopard print looks good and fashion is about consooming no matter what, so who cares

How shitty is the fake leather on Love Moschino bags? I found this under $100 in an outlet but idk if it's worth it even on sale. I'm debating between this and splurging on a $300 indie designer bag from real leather. But I feel stupid spending that much money on a bag. I can afford it, it wouldn't ruin me but as lower middle class grad student there are definitely smarter ways I could spend money. Like who am I to spend that much on a bag?

No. 337642

I have a bunch of other charms too! If I counted up all the ones I've bought over the years, it'll probably be more than twice the cost of the bear… Thanks for the perspective!

Yeah, a silk scarf is definitely more worth it based on material alone! I keep going back and forth partially because I know the cost to make it is probably way less than the cost they're selling it. That scarf is super cute btw nonna, I love the little bear head on the side!

It is huge! It was on sale for $52 on bergdorf goodman, but it looks like it's sold out now. Dang…that kinda makes me want to keep it more lol.

They do still make me happy, but I also cycle through them so they're not always in use. I think I'd probably force myself to always use it based on price alone, I might hang it up somewhere if I stop using it on my bag lol. I'm OK with having to spot clean it so I think it'll be fine on that front.

Thank you for all the replies nonnas! It's coming in a couple of days so I think if I fall in love with it again at first sight, I'll keep it. But if I still have any doubts about keeping it, I'll return it.

that really seems like you're paying for minimalism, the magnetic (?) clasp it has looks tacky but I'd have to see it in person, the fact you can't close it would make me unable to use it as a purse (something would fall out of it every time I put it down). I think it seems very overpriced, that's just me though.

I mainly wear totes without zippers/closure so this would be a step up actually. I don't mind because it's not like I'll be laying down anywhere in public.

Can’t speak for others here but I don’t have anything against fat women or fat women wanting to dress fashionably. The fat positivity movement online has become absurd but that’s online bullshit not real life (usually). Im a fan of fitted waist clothing (specifically like a flowy blouse paired with fitted waist bottoms, or fit and flare dresses — or anything that keeps your general figure but still lets the clothes have their own shape on you if that makes sense) on larger figures and that was comfortable for me but it’s hard to give advice without knowing what kind of styles you like or what your general silhouette is.
It sucks its hard to find real clothes in large sizes and not just styles for thin people scaled up in stretchy bullshit fabric that looks awful, but it’s out there. Accessorizing goes a long way, like a nice scarf or some jewelry and good shoes

you can become mindful of colors that make your body's coloring appear richer without trying to wade through psuedoscientific bullshit.

I'm very pale with pretty balanced untertones and I have white blonde hair. colors like orange, bright yellow, and many really saturated colors in general make my skin look greyer. cold colors like forest green, cadmium blue make my skin look brighter, so I wear those.

My recommendation isn't specifically about clothes, but weigh literally everything. It helps you prioritize and cut down on stuff you don't need.

Wear your heaviest items on your person for the plane ride. Your boots, your biggest coat, your thickest pants. Mentally include these items in your wardrobe but when you are packing set them aside because you know you will be wearing them. You can put them in a tote bag for going through security and put them on before you board the plane if that's too much stuff to wear in Australia in Nov.

Now you know you will be warm enough without even worrying about luggage weight limits. Everything else you pack can be thinner smaller layers. Remember you can buy things while you are there! Don't stress about forgetting something.

Not including the outfit I wear on the plane, I pack one extra pair of shoes (very important, something small that you know won't hurt your feet, bad shoes can ruin a trip), 2 pants, 4 tops, one lightweight dress, one pair of tights, and 4 bras + 4 pairs of underwear and socks. For a two week trip, this means I do a small load of laundry 3 times (4, 8, and 12 days after I arrive.) I do wear the pants a couple days each, I don't think that's gross especially in cold weather when I'm not even sweating but your mileage may vary. All this fits in one carry-on size backpack. I have never checked a back for a two week trip.

My essential toiletries fit in a ziplock back not including the hair brush.

I don't know if you're doing a lot of shopping but if you are, you can purchase luggage or a backpack while you are there and fill it with all the cool stuff you get on vacation, then check that bag on the way home.

In retail jobs I used to dress very plainly for the first 3 months or so, then start adding things back in until I was fully decked out in my usual garb. Worked for me because by that time I had shown them what a workaholic I was and no one ever seriously complained about my clothes. I also never wore a uniform that wasn't provided for me by the business. I'm not buying myself a uniform, if they want a uniform to be worn they have to buy it. All black casual stylish with a pop of color is weird, they can't be serious. What store is it?

It’s a bit boring, but it helps to have an idea in mind for every piece that you pack. Plan your outfits out in advance, look ahead to what activities you’ll likely be doing, think outfits that can do double duty. Each separate piece should work with another.

No. 339398

32kg of luggage. That's so freaking much, you could probably cut that down by half and not miss anything. For context I did three weeks in japan with a backpack weighing 9kg (this was in summer trough).
Decide beforehand how often your going to do laundary, and bring that number of tops and undies. Other pieces of clothing you won't need more than one or two of.
It's easy to get wrapped up in a million scenarios where you might need something,
but your not going into the desert and when you realize you need something you can just buy it there.
With that in mind you should leave some space in your luggage to fit the stuff you forgot and the souveniers you want to bring back.

Impressions boutique (picrel) has a pretty extensive curves/plus size section. I'm not plus size so I can't attest to how any of this will fit you, but I think all of these outfits would look nice on anyone. Also prioritizing taking the time to style your hair, and tying your outfit together with accessories also always helps.

Thank you so much for the input! I think at this stage the biggest hurdle is figuring out shoes as we're planning on doing some day hikes (nothing extreme; grade 3 under 10km MAX) and on previous holidays I've rolled ankles attempting to do them in sneakers.
I've got two pairs of lug-sole boot's which I've hiked in multiple times which don't read as hiking boots when worn casually and two outers which both pack down small.

I guess I'm just over-thinking this as the last time I travelled with friends and it didn't go well (they all planned outfits to go out to a really fancy dinner and clubbing afterwards and I just brought hiking/back packing clothes) I guess I just want to look a bit more polished this time around (and I'm going with different people so again I'm over thinking it.)

No. 339439

I forgot to add that the black sling bag & black shoes are my base items. The folding tote is for carry-on for the trip back to pack any purchases into and the folding green backpack is just a great size for day-trips or even carry-on for the trip back. The blue long champ bag is bigger in total volume though but I appreciate options when my shoulders ache

No. 339441

You can always stop in at Uniqlo or wherever to get suitable cheap clothes if you have to do something unexpected.

But yeah shoes are always the hardest, especially if you're like me and are like 1 size bigger than the typical Japanese shoe sizes and can't buy anything when you're there. It's so hard to find shoes that are a) lightweight b) comfortable and c) cute/match your clothes.

I'd try to find something other than a puffer vest to keep you warm, but idk what environment you're in where that is necessary. I know they are popular but I've never worn one and never think they look good.* I'd be sad all day in a puffer, no hate to people who like them. What about other knits instead? A warm blazer or cape?

For "pops of color" (is this 2010?) I would personally concentrate more on makeup (if you are good at it and it's allowed), hair accessories or hairbands (I have a medium-length pixie and still wear hairbands sometimes), and jewelry. Shoes are expensive to buy just for color so idk what you already have at home. Personally I tend not to buy colored shoes (aside from dark red) but perhaps you have a kaleidoscopic shoe wardrobe. It used to be popular for girls in my country to wear scarves but I am really picky about whether this looks good or not, it can look dated (if you care about that%).

*For reference, I like whimsical and elegant clothes when possible, and I wear a lot of black & rich brown, not together usually (kek) but as a base for other things & bc brown is a great color for me.

%I don't care that much about things being dated, personally; I reject some silhouettes that I tried purely bc they were trendy, but if I like something, why not wear it? I just hated a lot of the "shlubby scarf over every shirt" and giant uggo necklace looks from the early '10s. Obviously I'm preaching to the choir bc it sounds like you have a defined style and just need help adapting it for work. Remember you can wear whatever you want when you're not working.

No. 339454

personally I would only bring one outer and one pair of boots, only because I know myself and will wind up wearing one the whole time while the other sits in my bag. that did fuck me over once though, I don't know what happened but my usual boots suddenly caused me horrible foot pain (could have discovered that by wearing them on a hike before my trip, but I hadn't worn them in months). unless you're hiking somewhere wet and need to rotate boots each day to keep dry

>>339366 sorry but that sounds depressing as fuck and isn't how I approach any work that lets me have freedom in my expression. Used to work at pubs with no dress code/a little punk even and one of the best things was getting to go to work feeling like myself and having genuine interactions with people because i'm not trying to be a robot. The workplace has emphasized we are free to be ourselves and while i may be anxious about being too myself, I don't want to separate myself entirely 3-5 days a week

>>339384 I think this is my plan!! slowly building up my regular wardrobe but in black and incorporating more layers. it's a bougie asf specialty teashop. my tinfoil is they're too cheap to do us uniforms but i also can't think of many retail stores near me that aren't Target that actually have uniforms

>>339448 I keep getting mistaken for a 22 year old (I'm 26) when I wear the puffer jacket which is fair because my 21-23 year old workmates wear them. I'm on the hunt for black knits it's just been hard to find something i really like, but that's me being fussy. I've been putting a 'pop' of colour in my eyeshadow but i think you're on the money with hair accessories too!I think i really need to get a pair of shoes that aren't the basic bitch platform sneakers (that my mum got me specifically for work, bless her for spotting a sale and thinking of me but they're not helping) because I can't pair them with dresses or tight pants cus I HATE the high top. I wore a scarf for half a shift but it was totally dated looking

No. 339669

I dislike thongs and don't care for underwear to look "sexy", it has to be comfortable, so right now I'm buying Schiesser Invisble Soft stuff, never had anything more comfortable before and it doesn't show at all.

Aerie, but the quality has declined somewhat from years ago. I guess I am still happy with some of the stuff I picked out, just the 100% cotton ones seemed to fade much faster than other cotton pairs I bought in the past.

I buy mostly boybriefs and bikinis. All their seamless and "real me" stuff looks invisible under clothes and I find it comfortable. I like that it doesn't lose elasticity over time and stays in place when I'm working out. I like this cute little star pattern (picrel) on an otherwise normal and tasteful pair of underwear. I have that in a few solid colors. Their lace stuff is all not scratchy and has held up pretty well. It's best to wait for a sale, they have regular deals on underwear.

Yes they also sell a few dumb items, but the rest of it I'm happy with and will continue to stock up when in the US bc I don't like my options in this country very much at all.

Nonnies, I am so hung up on the idea of buying a replica. I absolutely love the Hermes Lindy and have for years, but don’t have the funds for an authentic one, even a used one. Even if I did have the funds, I’m not sure if I’d be comfortable spending that amount on a bag. It’s so tempting knowing there are great quality replicas in at very reasonable prices, but I’m just so stuck on the idea that somehow I won’t look right with the bag even though I just really love it’s design. I feel even stupider for feeling like this because I can say with confidence in the area I live most people wouldn’t even notice this bag as a designer bag or luxury bag, dupe or not.

No. 339896

I would skip a replica with any fake Hermes logos and just buy a dupe/knockoff for the style.

No. 339906

don't buy dupe/knockoffs, that's the trashiest shit you can do on earth even pathetic if you MUST get it a replica at least has the effort and quality a dupe does not. A better thing to do, specially when you are not sure about doing a big investment on a bag, is to find a bag that emulates the colour, size and if possible shape from a brand that isn't as expensive. That way you are not making a huge commitment and you're still getting a nice bag.

Hello nonny I used a Chinese go between service to order some knock off Prada boots a few years back.
They are fantastic, very cheap maybe $80 for the services + shoes + delivery, they look exactly like the real thing and came with all the accessories that come with the original shoes. I would recommend this option, however it's VERY ANXIOUS waiting for them to arrive and not knowing if customs is going to stop your package! I hope this helps, let us know what you decide to do.

I think soft flowy dresses would look really nice from how you describe your figure, also flowy pants would perhaps fit you better than bell bottoms and still look kind of whimsical (wouldn't wear it with a shirt though, maybe a band tee or crochet top?).

ideally you would figure out why you don't like them so you don't buy them again. I personally wouldn't throw them out because I don't like throwing out clothes that are perfectly good, but it's kind of situational like if you know you're never gonna wear them you might as well give them away.

The fact that everything is on sale makes me think it's definitely a scam. Notice all the photoshopped models posing like social media influencers… defo a scam, they probably just scraped those images off weibo. Reverse-image-search some of those corsets and you will find them listed under various names on similar shitty websites (picrel). If not a straight up scam it's at least some mass-produced bullshit and it's going to be a shitty corset.
And finally I'm sorry but a good corset costs more than fifty bucks and requires custom measurements, the fact that they're supposedly a company specializing in corsets for over 10 years but they don't even offer custom means it's bullshit.

No. 343909

What color are you trying to dye it? I dyed my faded black work coat (black dye, it was graying) and it worked great except for my own dumb mistake. I used a 5 gallon bycket and it was not big enough to stir it continuously like the instructions said, so I didnt. Where the dye took looks great, brand new. Where it didnt was still gray, so it came out splotchy. It wasnt hard to do, andI am going to do it the right way again this winter. I just wore the splotches last year cuz I was mad and didnt care to try again, it was a heavy work coat anyway kek. But this year I think I wanna try again before I wear it regularly. I just used RIT dye, nothing fancy.

I'm similarly shaped and they fit me, if it fits bad try other brands or size down/up. Measure yourself at home and make sure to check the brands sizing on their site to learn which size you are before you buy. Make sure to buy pants that are a little elastic esp on the waist, those will hug your body better. I feel straight bodies like ours fit straight jeans well, skinny looks fine as well although it's a bit outdated.

Does anyone have store recommendations for alt / grunge/ goth clothing and shoes? The stores I know of (like Disturbia and Dollskill) all sell overpriced low quality garbage.

No. 344930

"alt / grunge/ goth" were all based in DIY culture, second hand items, hand-me-downs and vintage (30+ years old) clothing. None of them were originally based around a brand/brands, they aimed for the opposite, that's why they were called "counter culture". What you're looking for is "mall goth", so try hot topic or anything black at Walmart.

nta but she's kinda right. unless you want to go indie-couture, like full on Mother of London (pretty sure they're out of business but I couldn't think of another example) all you're gonna find is mall goth stuff and dollskill. it's better to try thrifting/Ebay and just curate your own flavor of goth/alt. you can probably find some good shops on Etsy but etsy has been getting more mainstream lately and there's a lot of mass-produces resellers on there lately so be careful. I was just looking through some people who reviewed old mother of london stuff and found this if you wanna start somewhere, some of it looks interesting https://www.etsy.com/shop/Metamorphoza

No. 344960

just thought of something that's kinda like dollskill if they actually sold quality items
(I think they sell premade stuff on etsy and more custom stuff on their website)
it's not remotely every-day wear (a lot of it is PVC) but it's definitely alt and I can vouch for the quality.

No. 345127

Well tbf a lot of those goth/alt brands have greatly declined in quality and often times they charge an insane amount of money for clothes that you could have literally bought from a normie store. As long as you know what you like technically you can craft a gothic looking outfit without ever touching an alt store. I'd only buy from such stores if you want something super specific.

No. 345129

You can find goth/alt shit in regular stores if you're willing to look past how it's styled by the store. You don't need to shop at alt stores to shop for alt outfits. Sometimes I wonder if some of you genuinely can't see a piece of clothing for what it is and what it could be outside a pre-determined style or aesthetic.

No. 345150

Agreed, the most important part is picking out individual pieces and styling yourself. No need to shop all at one place. Lacks creativity. Also it's easier to buy pieces that'll go with your other pieces.

I've actually been doing this, I pick out pieces I like in normal stores and thrift stores (like everyone does). I do enjoy DIY'ing stuff as well.

Sorry to everyone who I upset, I'm not part of any subculture groups nor do I intend to be, I'm out of the loop and I wasn't aware there aren't any stores REAL subculture people frequent. I just like to have the tiniest ""alt"" (for the lack of a better term) vibes. If the quality wasn't so shit, I'd like to sprinkle in some pieces from the mall goth stores and not try to claim to be part of the culture at all. I'd like to be a goth the same way La Croix is a fruit.

I'm not so serious that I ever got super into it but there's a way to tell by looking at the coach stamp and ebay sellers are happy to show it. there are some obvious shitty fakes that are laughable (like the stamp is crooked or double-stamped lol) but for the popular styles that they really did make a lot of I don't have to worry too much about it being fake (that might change one day). I've only bought like 6 bags this way but none of them were shitty. I just pick the ones that have a legible coach stamp and a believable amount of wear and tear (a couple scuffs here and there are fine with me) and I've been happy with the price and how long they last. if they were fakes I don't care.

It feels like it will last for a good while. I'm pretty rough with my bags and it hasn't even scratched yet, after 2-3 months of wear. There's 3 different sizes I think and a lot of color options. They're always on sale somewhere too, I don't think it would be worth it at full price but for like $200 it's a steal.

Not everyone lives in a place where thrifting is a real option. Online thrifting has gotten expensive unless you want to spend literal hours and hours scrolling through ebay, depop has been shit for a while, Vinted/Poshmark/Mercari aren't available everywhere. Plus the issue of fit, not being able to return clothing, dealing with shitty sellers etc. Irl thrifting works if you are in a bigger city in Europe/US but if you're in bumfuck nowehere all you will find in thrift stores is shitty old fast fashion crap that can't be incorporated into an alt aesthetic (or any aesthetic for that matter).

Asian Street style is much different than western street style, styles develop according to body types, skintones, hair textures, facial features and of course culture.
Most weebs who try asian fashion look off because they're not fashionable enough to make enough changes that it fits them.
And yeah, jeans may not have been invented by asian fashionistas(and jeans weren't invented as a fashion statement but whatever) but they style it much differently than western people do so that doesn't really matter who invented which garment.
It's not about the brands, its about the clothes themselves. For example most asian fashion blogs(who are women with average incomes that don't buy luxury brands too often) I see use zara and hm for their outfits but they style it much differently than the western blogs I follow, although the western bloggers also dress from zara and hm. It's fine to use whatever brand long as you dont try to mimic a style or an aesthetic.
There is, though. Every country has a different average style. If you pick 20 college students from 3-4 different countries, you'll realize that they dress quite differently from the foreigners.

Totally agree, was looking at some popular japanese fashion accounts on twitter the other day and everything seems so basic and focused around designer goods as though the average woman can afford $4000 Dior and Celine bags. It's either that or some niche sub style that's basically a rehash of something we've seen already. How many times are they gonna do the whole girly, pink, frilly outfits with black accessories to make it edgy trend?

I still like the adult girly/大人ガーリー fashion though since it's nice to see more feminine, pretty outfits for grown women that are actually wearable VS some of the costumey, tiktok based microtrends where 99% of the clothing is going to end up in a landfill next month that get popular in burgerland.

I like that dress. Looks like something you would see those fashionable muslim girls wearing.
Anyway, I think you could save it by wearing a sweater. The fact that it matches your skin would probably only really be noticeable on the top half since it's right next to your face. Try to break the color up and make sure your shoes aren't white or beige.

Idk where to post this because it’s kind boring basic clothes, but I bought a ton of stuff from thredup this year. Most of the time I dress pretty badly - usually cheap $5 Uniqlo men’s v neck tees in the smallest size and a pair of shorts, and I wanted to try improving my wardrobe a bit. I know some people really hate thredup because of the shipping and hit or miss of using it. With a credit they gave me for sending a cleanout box I was able to average around $10 a piece out of everything I bought, which seemed okay. So far out of what I received I only have two duds - the $6 Madewell jeans that turned out to be super skinny style and the $13 Madewell blouse.

Unless you move around a lot and/or do sports it's really not. But if you want to be extra safe, get bigger and closed pockets because of course a modern phone is going to fall out of a teensy tiny little pocket like on generic women's cut jeans.
That's true but since pockets are closer to you, you can at least feel their hand if it comes close and if they're not experienced enough/you're not distracted enough. There are also hidden pockets located on the inside of clothes, made specifically for important items.

No. 348325

Then stop buying levis, kek, their pants are known to be made of harder material because of the high cotton percentage. You guys are really mindless.

You're telling me that men's pants which are cut for narrow thighs, no waist and a literal bulge fit your wide thighs and thin waist better? If man's pants fit you better, you're just buying too small sizes in women's pants, go up a size or two in women's department and you'll see that you can find clothes that fit then.

It's always someone saying they're too thin waisted, big hipped or boobed for women's clothes and that men's clothes fit better but like, none of the men's cuts are cut for curvy bodies you guys claim to have so it just makes no sense. The female fashion advice subreddit is like this as well, I'll never get it.

No. 348334

NTA but I find unless you're buying expensive clothing (and even then) women's clothing is made from worse quality fabrics that are either seethrough to force you into buying layers or fall apart after a year at most of wear. Flannels and jeans are especially bad, there's a noticeable difference in men's and women's flannels. Men's clothes are cut wrong but if I had to get my clothes tailored anyways I might be tempted to buy men's clothes and get them tailored to my shape because the materials on them are more sturdy and durable.
I don't buy men's pants because of the issues you've described but I stay away from anything high-waisted because the waist-hip ratio on women's clothes is just wrong for me 99% of the time. Some people just have a rough time with women's clothing, it happens.

Backpacks are insanely inconvenient imo, unless you're going to be walking non stop or sitting down with your stuff all day. Having to pull it off your shoulder and around your body just to grab something is a pain in the ass. I have a really nice backpack that converts to a shoulder bag and every time I use it as a backpack I regret it and end up using it the other way.

To me the most comfy and convenient bag is a lightweight, roomy, sling/fanny pack like pic rel. Though if I need to carry more stuff I obviously need a bigger bag, you have to pick bags based on the circumstances. None are perfect for everything.

Stop cursing me out, kek. Levis doesnt fit right because it has too much cotton, even if its thin, the fabric will be hard as elastic materials aren't included in the mixture.
Being an nlog and buying mens clothes instead of learning your real size and learning about better brands is just stupid. You literally admit you can't fit into women's pants but instead of sizing up, you stick to men's pants just because you can buy a set of clothing with xs sizing when you're probably a large in womens. Just size up, it's not that serious.

Also I'm not mad, you're the one whos swearing and typing angrily, kek. Imagine being so broke you think levis is high quality.

Nta but men's clothing literally doesn't come in xs lol. It usually doesn't even come in s because men don't like to be called small. Also their trouser sizes are in waistband/inseam measurements which is another thing that makes them convenient to buy compared to women's trousers.

ntayrt but you seemed to skip over the entire second half of that post that explained why sizing up didn't work for her. i personally can't handle jeans in general even in larger sizes for the same reason, feels like my panini's gonna burst through

Nta but what’s your damage, lmao. Men’s pants are of better quality, costs less and are more comfortable. I see no use in buying ill fitted women’s clothing just because I don’t want to come off as “nlog”.

Buying men's clothes doesn't make a woman an nlog kek

No. 348765

They do on most fast fashion brands.
Which men's jean brand are you shopping at that it's both high quality, cheap and fits women's bodies? Because I've never seen suç brand and most men's clothes, even in the smallest size are too loose for majority of women

Got no dog in this fight but I'm really baffled at anons saying men's clothing fits them better. I'm not curvy at all besides having a bigger chest but nothing from the mens section ever fits right.

No. 348781

We all have to make shitty mass-produced clothes that are tailored to no one work for us so let anon buy her men's jeans if she thinks those look better, who cares.

No. 348782

I agree. Then again I've seen some women who said they were super curvy so they could only wear men's clothes but they were average chubby American women and not people with extreme proportions. Maybe some women like how men's clothes seem to hide their body shape and that's why they prefer it?

People think I have a good fashion sense. However yesterday I was sitting next to a woman in public transportation who was skinnier and classier than me. She held two roses in her hand. I immediately shut my coat because I have big …you know. Obviously day after I realized well I shouldnt have an inferior complex because whoever gave her the roses lets her wander alone at night.
Pls don’t accuse me of being a scrote. I just am insecure that I may look like an ordinary tramp because I don’t dress my size and that people will talk about me that I’m a hoe. I never show legs or rarely do because they’re not yet there, but I do wear deep tops.
I don’t wanna post pics of my style but it’s a mixture of alternative, basic bitch baddie, classsy and tomboy. God I hate being insecure. Is it inappropriate to show cleavage?

for me, yes, it's a great thing. i hate tight fitting stuff that reveals my body shape, i unironically love potato sacks.

Ayrt i know it may sound memey but it’s actually really sad. I get sexualized, and it’s not funny. I just have noticed I am unsure how to dress and I feel I risk myself to get harassed and mocked with the way I dress right now. Maybe I am not even stylish, maybe I just dress like a skank and I’m unaware of it. Should curvy girls dress their size or..? Because at the end of the day nobody wants me except for one night stands and I have a gut feeling it’s because of my garbage sense of style.

No. 348892

It's because you're fat and radiate insecurity. Most men have no eye for or interest in fashion beyond it's sexy or not sexy.

No. 348893

But it’s women who like my sense of style and ask me for advice, it’s men who I think think I dress skanky.
I hope I’m not delusional, I really need help.
I’m fat but I work out extremely hard and put effort so my shape is nice.
>it’s because you’re fat and radiate insecurity
Why do I radiate insecurity in real life based on my looks aside from the fact I admit it?
If I become a size zero will I finally look stylish instead of skanky?

No. 348897

What nice shape? Muscle definition doesn't show up underneath excess fat.
>If I become a size zero will I finally look stylish instead of skanky?
Probably, yes. "Is it fashion or is it on a skinny girl" is a meme for a reason. things look better on skinnier people.

No. 348898

Stfu. Bitches like you are either chubby or average at best yourself yet you judge other women's bodies as if you're models.
Anon, you shouldn't dress to revealing around inappropriate settings. Dressing revealing while going out is fine for example, wearing something that's kinda risque can also be fine when going out with friends for coffee or such but when meeting new people or in work settings, try to wear more relaxed outfits.
Especially on first dates, don't make it look like you try too hard, just wear some basic outfit. Don't dress revealingly as men will take you less seriously because they're retarded and think with their dicks once they see a woman dressing revealingly.

I'm thin (underweight) and revealing stuff still looks out of place on me unless I'm going out. It doesn't matter how much you weight, certain places have certain unspoken dress codes and breaking them will make you look like an outsider.

No. 348902

Being fat isn't attractive to most people in Western cultures, that's just a fact that doesn't change regardless of my weight or looks.

No. 348906

I'm thin myself and I'd never put a women with higher weight down, I've only seen average-fat or chubby women talk the way you do. Go to gym instead of shitting on women who are happy with their body because it's obvious you're projecting your own insecurities.
