Collaboration: Shopspring.com x Plaitwoman

Hello all! Here is a special outfit of the day post, a collab with shopspring.com a retail hub for some of the most sought after brands and trendiest labels. The theme was spring, which usually means bright colors, maxi skirts and sandals, but knowing me, I would find a way to break the mold of what a typical spring outfit looks like. For this fit, I choose to go all black and create a breathable yet chic outfit. I started with a mock neck fitted dress from American Apparel, which I layered with  a FILA mesh overshirt. I finished it off with my PLAY by Comme des Garcons Converse sneakers and Ray-Ban sunglasses. Living proof that you can wear black in the summer time and still stay cool.

Bra-blems!: ThirdLove Collaboration

Today I’m going to share with you some tips from bra maker ThirdLove, who creates stylish and comfortable bras, on how to make wearing a bra a painless and comfortable (as possible) experience

  1. If you feel that the straps are too tight (or too loose), adjust them (simple, right?).
  2. Tighten straps every month or so to make sure they are supportive and snug
  3. The scoop and swoop: gather your girls and make sure each breast is secured into each cup as you pull back on the wire
  4. Go for a snug band to avoid unwanted side boob
  5. Avoid a riding up band: If you can fit two fingers underneath the back of the band, then your band is the right size!
  6. To avoid cup gaping, try adjusting the straps of your bra. If that doesn’t help, consider going down a cup size.

Collaboration: Plaitwoman x The Black Tux

I was approached by the Black Tux, a tuxedo rental company, to create the perfect date night outfit! I immediately thought to put together a suit in recognition of National Tux Day, which was on October 10th. I styled it with a pair of men’s inspired dress shoes and a sparkly halter neck top. I think it’s the perfect blend of men’s and women’s fashion that is a great alternative to the standard LBD for a night out!

Pants: H&M

Blazer: Forever 21

Shoes: Forever 21

Top: Thrift

Clutch: Shein
