Cheers! Happy Friday!
I wanted to take today’s post to share some fun fashion hacks for when you fashionista’s need a quick and easy fashion fix or when you encounter an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. The best part is that the tips involve things you most likely have already, so they’re full on #frugalfashionista approved.
You can be your best dressed on most days, but we all know that fashion doesn’t always fall into place smoothly. I have just the tips you need for those “falls.” See ahead!
Getting Ready in the Morning:
When you’re having a late morning, you’ve out slept you’re alarm, or you’re like me and you just have that continuously bad habit of getting out of bed slowly because you’re not a morning person…nevertheless you know you need to be at work by 9 or in that history of costume class by 8:45.
-your usual 20 minute make up routine…..in a day where eyebrows have become everyone’s obsession and the focus of memes (since cara delevigne brought them back), maybe they should be your main focus too. Running late? forget the routine, cut down the time and slap on the foundation then draw in and shape those brows. You’ll feel bare at first, but you’ll project a natural look. At the very least your brows are now front and center, they’ll appear bolder and frame your face! (and most importantly you’ll make it to your meeting!)
-no time to wash and dry that hair? Thats fine, I know I’ve had many of those days with all nighters in college. Befriend a can of dry shampoo, or hairspray brush and baby powder. Dry shampoo with a few quick sprays, works like a charm. If you don’t have that, you can always tease your hair and top it off with a light brush of baby powder. They say washing your hair every other day can be healthy for your tresses anyway
-don’t know what outfit to wear! Jumpsuit or dress. These two silhouettes are my favorite go-to’s. Neither require putting together an outfit, they’re one and done. Maybe add a necklace or a bracelet, then say you’re going for the minimalistic look
When Comfort is Key: (and you don’t have to pull the athleisure look, yoga pants while not doing yoga look…I know you’ve seen that video “active wear”)
-feeling a t-shirt and jeans kinda day but don’t want to look too laid back? Go for the t-shirt, just throw on a statement necklace and thats as dressed up as you’ll have to be while still being comfy. Its like walking out of a page in a Jcrew catalogue.
-LEGGINGSSSSSS! I know people are mixed on this, but I love leggings, as long as that bum is covered. They were my best friend in college and in my first years of professional adult world. You could dress them up or down, wear with a t-shirt or under a dress/skirt. EASY EASY EASY, SOFT, and leaves room for flexibility.
-sweatpants at the office…..wait what? Yes, I am a huge supporter of comfort at the office. You spend most of your day there, might as well be in comfort. Don’t worry, these “sweatpants” are actually more like dress pants and totally pass dress code!
Other fun, funny fashion fixes:
Have fun fashionistas. I’ll be traveling…and using some of the above quick fixes. What about you guys? whats in store for your weekends? Happy Friday and enjoy that weekend!
Its been a super long forgetful week. Seriously I’ve forgotten way too many important details for important design projects this week and its made me a hot mess. Couldn’t wait till Friday so I started a pre celebration for the weekend.
Ever since sushi dinner with my boyfriend last night and lychee drinks I decided it was about time to make my own. Its probably the only vodka drink I really enjoy. So to marshall’s it was to buy a drink mixer. Found this cute mason jar one with two mini mason jar shot glasses. The set = $7.99. SOLD! to the girl with lychee martinis on her mind.
Heres to ending a crazy week of designing Doll clothes to match apparel collections, Cheers!
Much Love – MA
