So, bonus story time!
I was out with one of my very good friends, helping her find an outfit for her dissertation defense. We ultimately decide to stop off at Lane Bryant (the huge one on 34th and 8th) Now, we’re looking at things, trying to find something that matched her aesthetic, and two lovely associates came into the dressing room to help us out.
We end up settling on this awesome backless lace top and skirt combo that is everything and the next thing I know…
“Why don’t you try on some things?”
Now wait. I am NOT here to shop for me! But then he starts bringing me clothes and helping me put together outfits and…
I do have NYFW+ coming up and I need some outfits for the shows…
I fell for it.
So here’s the thing: I can’t afford ALL of the things, but I damn sure know I have to get some of them! So I need y’all, my wonderful readers, to help me pick an outfit! Here are the contenders:
I’m not normally a jeans girl, but these skinnies are EVERYTHING. If you want as close a fit as mine, go down a size (they’re super stretchy). The coat was our lovely stylist’s idea; cause I never would have picked it out! But I do like it.
So I’m wearing a poncho as a top. And it’s comfy! The shoes hands down have to be my favorite part of this outfit, and the heels aren’t too high. And there’s cushion!
So, I already bought these shoes (they were on sale!) The jacket is my favorite part of this outfit (size up if you have larger arms like me, as there is little stretch) The jeans were comfy, but I prefer a plainer jean (yes, that’s right!) I adore sparkle, I just wasn’t such a fan of the embellishments here.
Can y’all see the bind I’m in? I want so many pieces, but the way my bank account is set up…
So, I hand it over to y’all. Help, please? Which do you like? Comment and let me know!
Super special shout out to the crew at the 34th and 8th Lane Bryant for styling help and picture snapping! They’re awesome; go see them if you come to visit!
