The Fit of Fashion

As you all know, I currently work at Nordstrom so I decided to use clothes from my store to try on for my reason fashion assignment. The assignment: try on a number of garments ranging from pants, dresses, tops, etc. Then choose the item that fit the best and try on 3 other items that were the same size as the “perfect fit” item.

I used four different brands: Vince Camuto, Caslon, NYDJ, and Halogen. I used 4 different shirts that were all size extra small/ 0-2. All of the shirts were flared because I like that style of tops, but they all fell differently on my body.

Four fits
The grey Halogen shirt with the blue lace collar was actually too tight to get over my shoulders because it didn’t have any stretch to it, hence why its not even on in the picture!

The red Caslon tank top fit, but had no shape to it so it wasn’t very flattering. The NYDJ fruity top was more flattering than the Caslon top , but was too loose around the shoulder and neckline.

My favorite top out of the 4 and the one I believe worked the best on me was the over-sized striped Vince Camuto top. This top had the right amount of flare to it and was also flattering on my body.

It was very interesting to see how the tops were all the same size and structure but wore differently on my body. There is no right or wrong fit when it comes to fashion.

Wear what you love and feel beautiful in the clothes you put on your body!

I Made A YouTube Channel!

Happy Friday lovelies!

The weather is beautiful, I’ve been keeping busy with work and focusing on some of my goals!

One of my goals that I finally achieved was starting a youtube channel. Since I want to be a fashion correspondent, I need some “on-air” experience so a Youtube channel is the perfect way to get some!

On my channel I plan on discussing hair, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle, similar to what I discuss right here on Coral Buttons.

I hope that my channel gets me one step closer to fulfilling that fashion reporter dream and not only that, I also hope that my channel can be a source of encouragement to anyone who needs it.

I plan to include positive, inspirational, and uplifting messages in every video! Only one video is up for now, but don’t worry more fun and fashionable videos are in the future.

Have an amazing weekend!

Fashionable & Fun Photoshoot. Enjoy the Sunshine!

The spring days in Baltimore have been beautiful! Since it was warm and sunny this past Sunday I decided to do a fun photoshoot.

Right after church Shawn (my boyfriend for all of my new readers ^-^) and I went to a casual and simple locations and the pics are below:

I really loved this photoshoot because it was untraditional and not constructed. I just wanted to let loose and embrace the sunshine.

From the very start of 2017, I’ve been trying to focus a lot on my goals for the future, especially a few big ones I have for this year alone.

Sometimes spending so much time planning and preparing can get overwhelming and stressful. That’s why I felt that this photoshoot was so meaningful.

I wasn’t stressed or worried about what tasks I need to do in the next week. I was just outside in the moment and enjoying the sun.

Take some time this week to just step outside and feel the sun in your face. Your goals and plans will still be there, let loose and have some fun!

Breaking Fashion Rules!

Good morning everyone and happy almost weekend! Today I want to focus on a topic that I am really passionate about: breaking fashion rules.

I am sure that you’ve heard one, some, or all of these rules listed below:

1) Dont wear white after labor day
2) Don’t mix prints or patterns
3) Sequins or sparkle is only for nighttime
4) Everyone should have *insert item here* in their wardrobe

If I had a way to delete these fashion rules and others from our society I would! I recently wore the outfit pictured in this post which “broke” one of the rules: mixing prints.

Both my top and skirt were tribal print but different variations of it. Some people would literally freak out over that, but I don’t.

Fashion is all about creating your own style and being original. So when I wear a black and white crop top with a seafoam green skirt, both with patterns on them, I should feel stylish and chic and not have to worry about breaking rules.

I paired this look with black heels because of the black in my top, and I felt that it truly tied the look together. I want to encourage you to break these fashion rules and others on a daily basis.

If you want to wear white after labor day, do so, white is a great color to wear as jeans, tops, shoes and even accessories. Sequins and sparkle are perfectly fine any time of the day whether you are just going out for a walk in the park, to work, or out to party.

Also, don’t worry about that one item everyone should have in their wardrobe because you don’t want to dress like everyone else. Have items in your closet that you love.

I hope this post motivated you to break these rules and do fashion your way; have fun with it!

Enjoy your weekend lovelies!
