Reposting from last thread for >>288496
So do you mean the sculptural style, texture or colours?
I feel like clothing from Aje might appeal to you if you like the sculptural side. Pic is some of their pieces so if the shapes appeal to you then check out the website.
They are a little expensive but good quality and maintain a classic 'art - gallery' semi-stylish curator look.

This is sort of a difficult question because no one "style" encapsulates this look. I see draping, sea foam green, art deco, bronze, straight lines, beaded crystals, soft and feminine elements. Some of the items in picrel are more timeless/vintage styled but could still be worn today. This was fun I hope you don't hate it kekI hate this threadpic I am so sick of j/k fashion & weeb shit but whatev

Can we talk about bags? I'm in desperate need for a new one and need some inspiration, stores, brands, etc.
I'm looking for a bag that offers the following:
- real leather
- shoulder strap
- closed with a zipper
- DIN A4 has to fit easily into it
- style shouldn't look elegant or posh, more grunge, goth, crumpled, but not childish (like Killstar, etc.), something like picrel
It doesn't have to be from a recent collection, I don't mind out of fashion stuff and if you have recommendations for stores (in Europe would be nice) that sell designer stuff cheaper, I will gladly listen.

I like Rebbeca Minkoff, Sans beast, Longchamp (Leather totes) and if it's in your budget Polene (Definitely a investment piece, I love my Numéro Dix Hobo and they're based in Spain).
If you are ok with secondhand, then you could hunt around for a Alexander McQueen Novak handbag, it's an older style and I think it would suit your style of slouchy-gothic-grungy

The Falabella tote is still the quintessential grown up edgy bag imo. If you can find a leather one second hand I think it's a great option.
thank you, will have a look at the brands, even though they look a little too "clean" for my taste>>289482
I love that bag, sadly it's not practical for me, my bag is always rather heavy and the handles would cut into my shoulder and I need a zipper at the top living in a rainy, big city.

If you can afford a $300-$700 bag, def check out Givenchy's Pandora. It comes in tons of sizes and finishes and can be found used at decent prices. My dream bag. No offense to the other nonnies but the bags posted above are kinda ugly and grandma-ish
Pandora might be years old but the clean, streamlined lines and silver hardware are very modern nonna. Best of all it's edgy which is what purse nonnie
was looking for.

nta but the givenchy pandora bag might be dated by trend but it's still a nice bag and fairly timeless in terms of look. my issue is the material. i have one in the wrinkled sheepskin (it was gifted to me) and it's very… thin. i was shocked at how fragile it feels. i haven't used it once because i worry about its construction (plus i really don't use leathers or anything but woven travelbags). if you buy the pandora or anything by givenchy don't get the sheepskin
>>289572>cant wear jeans
You could try wearing a thin pair of leggings underneath, especially if you're going for baggy jeans that are currently trendy that'd be easy to do. Or wear trousers/pants made from something other than denim.>cant wear bras with wire
bralettes>cant wear off the shoulder tops/dresses
I don't see the problem with this? They're not common in day to day clothing.>i struggle finding cute clothes where my bra straps don't show.
Just let them show, no one cares about seeing a bra strap. Alernatively use transparant straps (I'd rather just let my brastrap show but it's an option.
Correct me if I'm wrong but to me it sounds like you can wear nearly any dress or any skirt+top combination you can grab at the store.
thank u, i find that the clothing style i like a lot of them have off the shoulder style outfits so its a bit hard.
skirts sit weird on me they make me look like wide..? idk how to explain it i just have a hard time finding clothes that i like on me that also feel comfy. i appreciate the help though thank u
I'm bag nonna and I don't care for "dated", I wore a 30 € bag to death, I will wear a 500 € bag to death. I'm not someone who changes her bag very often and therefore I'm looking for a durable, nice, practical bag. I love the Alexander Wang Rocco bag, but because of the studs it's a rather heavy bag and I'm always carrying around books and stuff, so there is enough weight in my bag already.
That Givenchy bag is really nice, especially the wrinkled sheepskin version, but if it feels thin, it might be the wrong choice for me (now I'm sad). Guess it's time to learn how to make bags, kek.

I feel like the regular (cowhide) leather one would be more substantial than the sheepskin one tbh BUT if you carry heavy things, the shoulder strap connection point (?) does look insubstantial. I totally know what you mean about wanting to make your own dang bag because you can't find what you need. What about The Cambridge Satchel Co.? UK based very beautiful bags Ahhh actually there is no zipper closure, damn!!

Can anyone recommend long lasting leather boots? I started to look at Doc Martens but after hearing how their quality has gone to shit since they moved their production overseas, I can't justify paying for its price.
I've started to look at Solovairs which seems to be comparable in price and quality to what Doc Martens used to be. Based on YouTube reviews and comparison, Solovair definitely lasts a lot longer than Docs. Do any nonas here own Solovair?
feeling same, nonna. it's even worse for me because i lack confidence and my desire to dress nicely got shattered. i could wear anything if i lost weight because i'm lucky and i got hourglass figure and never had problems with clothes fitting.
any tips how to overcome it and start liking fashion again, building a nice wardrobe? i currently dress in shitty fast fashion t-shirts (summer) and sweaters (rest of the year) and jeans. i like actual late 90s stuff that young women wore, than shitty zoomer y2k garbage and bimbo shit. neutral colors, simple forms but i feel like i wouldn't be able to pull it off.

I feel you nonnie
. Being a poorfag sucks.
Why do you think you can't pull it off? Are they reasonable, grounded reasons, or do you just hate yourself? Secondly, what's the worst that'll happen to you if you wear a potentially unflattering outfit? You're not going to get stoned for wearing the wrong jeans.
As for concrete advice, what helped me the most in curating my wardrobe is knowing which silhouettes look best on me. I'm an hourglass so I like a cinched waist, A line dresses, cropped jackets. Beyond that I shop for materials that feel nice, and colours and prints that make me happy. IMO You're never too old to have a fave colour and as an adult it's your God given right to fill your space with it. As >>290059
said, copy/paste aesthetics are only useful to a point. Try to branch out and select individual pieces based on their merit (uniqueness, function, feeling, if it flatters you). The best way to do this, I think, is thrifting and shopping secondhand. It's a lot easier to find random/interesting things that stand out from the pile, compared to a mall or something, where these days the clothes are always grouped by style/aesthetic.
File: 1664077433109.jpg (752.61 KB, 1080x5297, AndroNonnie.jpg)
Try men's silhouettes but with silk or chiffon, like the tan shirt and the green pleated pants in picrel. Accessories can really help feminine-leaning clothing take on an androgynous style, such as the Oxford shoes and black boots combined with the soft fabrics which empasize long & feminine legs/ankles in picrel. Choosing more traditionally masculine colors will also help tip otherwise neutral or feminine clothing into masculine territory.
I'm sorry if this isn't what you were asking, idk if you mean "style" as in styles/cuts/silhouettes or more like naming of specific ~aesthetics~ & when I think "low-key" I think "casual" rather than draped generally, but I hope I got your jist nonnie
File: 1664078706326.jpg (860.33 KB, 1282x7776, AndroNonnie2(1).jpg)
Here are some more ideas: a chiffon blazer jacket can be styled very casually. Or satin cargo shorts maybe? Camo is one of my favorites for playing up masculinity/androgyny (I always say jokingly that it makes me feel NLOG kek). You can try some pieces in satin so you can keep it low-key maybe? Or like the very bottom pic, the shorts aren't super flowy but they aren't crazy thick/structured and will relax with wear, paired with a flowy, boxy (always boxy if you want to look andro) button-up blouse. I really like small details on otherwise masc/andro clothing, such as small side slits at the hemline of shirts and shorts, or smaller less visually intrusive buttons.
This also depends on your hairstyle and general ~vibe~ of your face and body, in my opinion, so your mileage may vary! If you wanna drop more info I can possibly tailor the looks and come up with different stuff! I really enjoy this kek

Is it maybe your posture that needs work? Otherwise you could consider getting a color analysis done as the right tones can really make a difference.

So it's called a Color Analysis and you can read/DIY it yourself. This website helped me heaps: https://theconceptwardrobe.com/colour-analysis-comprehensive-guides/color-analysis-which-color-season-are-you
I'm getting mine done in person and it'll include:
-a body analysis
-style refining (Vivienne Westwood but more texture) which will use the pieces I currently love and build a wardrobe around them
-Color analysis for both clothing but also skin & hair
-Faceshape and hair styling recs
-75 piece color fan of my 'best' matches

Google Seasonal colour analysis or something along those lines to see if you can do it somewhere locally. My mom did it once and took me along and it was just at some ladies' home lol. Basically they have you sit with no make-up on in natural daylight and drape different coloured pieces of fabric over your shoulder, and make you look in the mirror to see how a colour affects your face. Like certain colours are going to make your face look more tired and aged and bring out your imperfections and others are going to make your face look more bright and healthy. You could replicate it yourself by doing that with clothes you already own, if you have a good eye for telling the temperature and brightness/muteness of colours and how they affect your face. I saw it on my mom and I could kinda tell what colours looked worse on her after that lady had pointed it out a couple of times but it's not easy imo. Like in this pic >>290174
I can't tell at all honestly. My mom got this paper palette afterwards like picrel and it's true, those colours do look best on her.
Are you routinely in trouble with the law? Do you actually carry a gun? If not then it doesn't matter if anyone thinks you look like a school shooter, because you're not! And anyone who would insult you to your face like that (unlikely in the first place) is an asshole. Enjoy your coat! Where it whenever and however you want! I understand feeling a bit insecure when you're trying out new clothes, especially if there aren't many other people with a similar style in your everyday life. I hope that you won't let these worries stop you from dressing how you want. Also if it doesn't fit properly, maybe you could get it tailored? Either way leather coats are very cool and super hot
so I hope you will keep at it.
Thank you for the recommendations!! I'll check them out and pipe up if I have any specific ?s.
And, idk, people have told me I look like a bronze (hair and skin) Bella Hadid/Fiona Apple which makes me feel very insecure, but probably suits lowkey fashions.
thanks for the reassurance nona, i really needed to hear this! it's true i'm feeling a bit insecure since i'm deviating from my usual style. also im afraid of not being able to pull it off since i want to look cool but i have a baby face and routinely get mistaken for being a 16 year old kek. i said its long on me but the length is actually fine for a coat (knee-length), its supposed to be a long blazer.>>290258
i think it depends on the leather coat but it seems like they have a connotation for being costume-y, especially if you can't pull it off well. but it's good to hear that they're a staple, i love the look of them.

Would also love to know this! My last pair were actually school shoes, pic related. They were a great choice because they were comfy, good quality, durable etc (since they're meant to be worn every day for school), but they aren't particularly cute or stylish. I want something with a less sensible heel and a little bit of a platform maybe, I can only find patent leather and/or huge heels.

I'm into Billie Eilish's old style, street wear, and the 00s baggy pants look, and I want to start styling myself this way. How do I do this without looking like a homeless monster? I'm not very attractive, a bit tall, and have a troonish build so I feel like a monster if I wear baggy clothes, but at the same time I feel like more gender non-conforming looks suit me better than overtly feminine clothing that emphasizes my unfortunate body and height. What to do?

What about an (updated) style like Avril Lavigne's? She has a different build but in pics she was often wearing fitted tops with baggy bottoms. Obviously her style is also different than what you described but as another tall nonny
who struggles with baggy clothes, this type of fit seems like a decent alternative. Tighter clothes but still gives off tomboy energy if that's what you like

What type did you get? The vegan leather or any metallic/glitter ones are definitely worse than the plain genuine leather ones.>>291766
Manufacturing moved to Asia nearly 20 years ago but the general consensus online seems to be that the quality has continued to decline throughout the years, so a pair made in 2018 is likely to be worse than one made in 2008 despite both being Asia-made.
>>291766>but that’s not bad for nearly 10 years of continuous wear
Ok that sounds good enough for me, that's what I expect from my pair.
>at the same time my friend bought a pair a few years ago and she barely wore them a few weeks before the sole of one of them fell cleanly off.
At the store I've been told by an employee that if there's a manufacturing issue I have a year long warranty on my pair. I hope I won't have to use it.>>291779
I bought the most classic pair, made in leather. No fucking way I'm spending that much money on shit plastic shoes. I wanted the black classic pair because I know it will look good with most of my wardrobe.
Docs are shit quality nowadays, even the genuine leather ones are crap. They're nowhere near as comfy as they used to be and they're just not gonna last you 10 years. I sold the last pair I bought because they felt so bad compared to the pair that I bought 15ish years ago.

How unfashionable is this bracelet? Is it a matter of what I wear it with? It's made of shiny polished stones - even the tiny beads - and while I do find it cute, I am scarred from the horrible fashion decisions I made when growing up to the point of being bullied.
Also, yes, I found it randomly, kek. Trashy? Yes.
I think it's cute and it looks fine. As other anons said just keep in mind that it won't work if you're trying to look super professional/glamorous/etc., but for daily wear it's perfectly fine. Pair it with some earth tones. Find other jewellery to match if you like it enough. Unless you're going to an event with a strict dress code (like a wedding or something) nobody is going notice or care. And anyone willing to bully you over a bracelet is an asshole whose opinion doesn't matter.
I know we all love fashion ITT so it's important to all of us, but some of you seem really hung up on what other people think of your style choices. It makes me sad. I want everyone to feel confident enough to wear what they enjoy, without letting imaginary insults from strangers take bites out of their self esteem. I know you specifically have been bullied so I can understand your worries, but it's not normal or healthy, and you do not have to live in fear of others opinions. Nobody does.

I have no experience with them but everyone names Solovair as THE alternative for Dr. Martens. Apparantly they're made in the factory in the UK that originally produced Dr. Martens before they moved. If you google you can find plenty of content comparing the two brands.
I just wore normal coords with a smaller petti but paid more attention to fabric and details. I wore mostly cotton JSKs that have basic cuts. and avoided buying more fragile pieces with lace overlays, satin, etc. that are easily damaged. A solid set of undergarments to protect your clothes from the inside is something I recommend along with good leather boots that are suitable for walking long distances. Pick fabric accessories like wristcuffs over jewelry that tends to be fragile and get caught in stuff.
For socks I mostly wore basic OTKs with a frill or lace at the top that you can get on aliexpress and other such places, but Innocent World socks are also everything-proof in my experience. Innocent World in general has a lot of very sturdy pieces.

how about these? you can sub out the shoes for more comfortable ones. i think a lot of similar outfits can be made with thrift store stuff cause some of these are similar to what ive worn but in different colors. also if you know your good colors, body shape that can tell you what to buy and use the most. im a cool tone that looks best in midtones and im a pear so wrap tops or a nice blouse with high waisted bottoms works well for me.

So today at my local thrift store, I bought a Reformation skirt for 10$. However, I'm having some trouble making sure it's 100% legit. I am following a guide online that someone wrote for their dresses. There are no misspellings on the care tag and the size tag is sewn in next to it. The fabric tag on the waistband is stitched down on the sides, which is a sign of the real deal, according to the guide. However, that's different compared to this depop listing of the same skirt, which just has one stitch at the top of the tag, as well as white thread instead of black on the care tag. Is that suspicious, or am I just reading into it too much?
Then, there's also the issue where when I bought the skirt, I hadn't properly read the tag, and didn't realize it was a size 20 when I am a 10. Is it worth having someone take it in for me? Would love some advice.https://www.depop.com/products/amandalynn1231-nwot-reformation-betty-floral-wrap/

I bought these boots recently I really love them and they’re a bit more beige/creme in real life. What could I style them with? I looked on Pinterest for outfit ideas and I like some but most of it doesn’t seem coordinated well with these boots (in my personal taste I guess if that makes sense.) I was thinking of just wearing like a white fluffy sweater and some light brown pants and then these and maybe some hat or something. I’d like to know your thoughts!

what is this kind of top called? ruffle/frill layered/tiered camisole comes up with nothing but ugly shite not in this shape at all. they were all cropped. i absolutely hate this either cropped or oversized clothes epidemic for the love of god when are clothes going to be regular sized again
all i know is the brand is liz lisa but that's not what im looking for, i want to know what this kind of top is called in general regardless of the brand.
I prefer cotton to polyester and I hate polyester fleece. Personally, I would look for something 100% cotton, but that's because I feel like polyester is way too warm for my taste. It also depends on the kind of cotton they used, there are huge differences, but most companies won't tell you what cotton it is. If you own lululemon and are very happy with how they lastet and if for your taste it feels nice, I would go for them.
So, for my personal taste I would only buy 100% cotton roughened french terry (don't know if you call it that in English) for sweatpants, but I'm very biased when it comes to fabric, happens when you have to work with it, kek. If you made good experiences with one brand and feel like they are still up to that standard, go for it, honestly, nothing wrong about it and yes, it's a "lot" of polyester, but for some people it's the perfect choice and polyester comes in different forms with different purposes. And like nonna before, I hate such huge logos, after all you paid good money for that brand, you don't have to be a walking advertisement.
Merci so much! This is good info. Sadly not a burger but I looked at the pants and they look super cozy, love that its 98 percent US cotton. I know the lululemon has a pretty high price but I'm willing to pay more if it's good quality because he tends to buy cheap H&M shit that get ruined in like a year from wear. The Roots ones do have a big giant logo kek I was thinking about that, I don't mind them on the salt and pepper colour but it looks bad on black I think.
Side note: the wesbite for the pants says>Our experienced sewers earn up to $25 an hour and no less than $16
Is that supposed to be good? 16 dollars an hour is nothing. I mean it's a dollar above minimum wage kek >>293734
wow thanks, its cool you're super knowledge about fabrics. I did a quick search for 100 percent cotton ones and couldn't find any. It gets cold here so I'm not too worried about them being too warm, I just don't want them to pill or get super rough after like two washes like cheap ones do.
Thank you so much nonnas, I think I'm going to just go for the lululemon ones!
16$ an hour as a sewer is a lot, in my (first world) country I would earn minimum wage in that job, that's now 12 € (around 11,50 $), before that it's been 9,50 € and we have high rents and everything got so expensive, you can't live from that kind of money. I'm a learned dressmaker and I would never earn 25$ only for sewing, kek. Therefore, I love you nonna, for paying a higher price for good craftsmanship, wish everyone would do that instead of just buying huge amounts of cheap shit they never wear.
>>293754>just don't want them to pill or get super rough after like two washes like cheap ones do.
Make sure to hang dry them if you don't already! It extends the longevity of clothing soooo much & you don't get pilling as easily.>>293761
I think so. If teens, who are the easiest to push trends onto and care the most about trends aren't wearing them then I'd say they're out of fashion. You can still wear them and be cute though, who cares. >>293875
The less texture, the better. Sorry I can't be of more help nonna. I'm surprised that the smooth material of the pants (?) you thrifted
are picking up a lot of hair. Make sure you vacuum a lot, too.
Yes and no. Yes they are out but anyone who's not a fashion victim
will see that there's still plenty of women and even teen girls wearing their skinny jeans because most people can't and/or don't want to change their whole warderobe on the whims of the fashion trends.>>293720
This is the unpopular opinion but I'm not actually a big fan of cotton pieces, especially bottoms. I started switching to 100% cotton pieces when I realized how much nicer this random cotton shirt I got felt and how my other clothes suddenly felt like plastic in comparison. But after a while of wearing my new cotton purchases I noticed that I had a much tougher time getting stains out of my new pieces (turns out natural fabrics indeed stain more easily when I googled it) and my cotton jeans ripped noticeably quicker than my polyester blend jeans. So I'm personally leaning towards believing that cotton/polyester blends are actually a decent choice.
I don't own a dryer and therefore have to let it dry indoors and I put on the heating in the room the stuff hangs to dry, only solution so far, as I can't put it outside because of 24/7 smoking neighbours>>293875>>293878
sometimes it has something to with the dye they used, when it's more "on" the fabric, hair can stick to it. Fabric production and resources used is a very big area and depending on what they use and how they process things you will have different outcomes. For example you have different length of cotton fibres and the shorter the fibre, the more pilling you will get, as there are more fibre ends sticking out of the fabric. If I have the choice, I prefer pima cotton (extra long stable cotton) and if you like a silky and more "shiny" appearance, look out for mercerised cotton. When I go shopping I take a small fabric piece that always loses a lot of lint with me and go over the thing I might want to buy with it, to see how much keeps on sticking on the fabric. I also test the things I would like to buy if they lose the dye very fast with a slightly wet piece of white fabric.
Polyester just has the advantage that the person making it can decide which characteristics the fibre should have and they can make it that way. That's why most sportswear is made of polyester, it dries faster and you can equip it with stuff like "anti smell" things, etc.

Am I fashion blind? I see so many people applauding her style and outfits yet they all seem like some strange pastiche of clean minimalist corporate style and dolls kill edginess.
the easiest rule to follow is to combine more fitted clothes w/ looser clothes, ie a baggy top and more form-fitting pants, or baggy/wide-legged pants with a tighter top. this is why her center outfit looks the least cringe (imo), cause at least it kinda has that balance that the other two lack, until you get to her goofy shoes.
the other option would be to create kind of a "shapeless" silhouette through all oversized/baggy clothes, but those are harder to give advice on. the two outfits on either side are truly hideous, and part of that has to do with how chaotic the silhouette is
I get my jewelry from local brands that I found through googling things like "contemporary (prefered material) jewelry brands" "best (style) (prefered material) jewelry brands" things like that>>294353
Oh please be careful with etsy, they allow things that aren't handmade or vintage nowadays.
i guess the easiest thing to look out for is uniqueness even tho thats not very good advice. im only interested in really minimalist stuff as well. if the shops been around for a long time with a high review score ive never been worried they could be involved with dropshipping, but maybe im just naive.https://www.etsy.com/listing/1150217794/tiny-14k-gold-jade-pendant-necklace

What brand sells good, tapered/pencil shape and somewhat high waisted mom jeans that retain their shape? I found out that bulkier bottoms look so much better than me, though it's been hard finding a pair that isn't too slick, nor too baggy, and has a nice texture and finish to it. Picrel is kind of close.
And yeah I've been looking in thrift stores. Oddly, haven't had much luck.
Etsy is something I've been looking at, sadly many companies are in USA or Australia and the shipping costs are like 30 € for one piece.>>294355
I'm always using reverse image search when shopping on etsy, won't pay good money for cheap Aliexpress stuff.>>294357
never thought about local brands, but I guess there has to be something in my city, as it's one of the largest in my country, kek. Guess I will have a look at things made in this city and maybe find something nice>>294358
I love what you bought, seems like we are looking for the same stuff.

Has anyone bought boots from Altercore before? I need a new pair of combat boots but I don’t wanna spend a 100€ just for them to fall apart after a couple of months.
Or does anyone have a recommendation for similarly priced boots that are nice (vegan btw)?

I have 3 pairs of shoes from this brand! They are very comfy and hold up really well.
Picrel are my favourite, the Altercore Roca black.
They look cute with my band shirts and goth outfits, idc if they're considered tacky. I don't like current fashion trends anyway.
Wear whatever sparks joy, nonas
I meant financially, yes.>>294502>Replacing all of your good bottoms, shoes and bags every few years just to chase the ever changing "current"
do you even hear yourself?
nta, and nothing against you two, so please don't fell attacked, but how does that work? Everything you owned before goes into the trash because it's not "trendy" anymore. Well, not for me, I'm rather stuck in 2014 or 1960 or 1890 than supporting this fast fashion low quality bullshit that makes life for way too many people and the environment a living hell. Also, you can make new clothes out of older clothes, especially if they are good quality and the fabric used isn't meant to be worn only for half a season.>>294489
I like those shoes, being comfy and comfortable with what you wear should be the most important part of any outfit. Sad that I don't wear shoes that aren't leather and their sizes are too small, kek.

anyone got an idea of what sort of hat she's wearing?
Do you even know how leather is made? They raise cows for the specific purpose of becoming leather products, it’s not ethical to animals in any way. There’s so many toxic
chemicals used to treat hides that it pollutes the air and water of the places that do it. Muh plastic bad and vegans wrong! is a super cool take except when you realize you’re wrong completely and there are other options besides PU for lasting wearable items.
so meat is thrown out, you idiot? all parts of animals are used because it's wasteful to raise them just for leathers. and you didn't hear about vegetable tanning ever? which is way more enviromentally friendly than typical process using lot of harmful chemicals with heavy metals. microplastics are massive problem and PU and other shitty fake leathers are made from fucking petroleum, they last less and can flake easily. and real leather has bigger chances of degrading than plastics that can take 500 years to degrade. real leather lasts years and you won't replace leather shoes/jackets/bags as much you do with plastic crap. i don't care about fucking animals, domesticated cows and other farm animals were domesticated for human use. i guess you're one of these militant vegans who would let domesticated farm animals out just to wreck ecosystems "because muh no suffering". you probably don't care about people too, dumb cow is more important than curbing consoomerism and avoiding materials that wreck environment more. until 00s real leather was even used by fast fashion chains and some of these pieces i see listed second-hand still look decent.
i fucking hate vegans. the most entitled and first world bullshit. they are dumb because they deprave themselves of nutrients to virtue singal.>>294586
I wear my stuff until it falls apart. I only sell stuff that doesn't fit anymore and I don't donate in my country as most of the stuff goes into the trash or to religious organisations. I'm in the process of making everything I wear (except for shoes and underwear) myself in the future. At the moment I only buy second hand. I've seen enough to keep on supporting brands like H&M or Zara or follow fashion trends that look ugly on most people.>>294586
that's just it, the fashion industry is one of the big factors to environmental pollution, but it's more important to be trendy than owning what you really need. The last bag I bought was cheap and made out of faux leather, after 2 years the upper layer comes apart and I can put that bag into the trash. My leather shoes I've been wearing for 5 years now, a little bit of leather care and they look like new, if I resole them in the future, I can wear them the next 5 to 10 years.
Honestly, I think it would help if people that like fashion would have to make one basic outfit themselves under the circumstances people in the country there clothes come from had to make them, guess 90% would never buy at Primark, H&M, Zara, etc again.
You think making everyone make clothes magically gives them enough money to buy ethical brands?
I also doubt you've gotten very far in learning to make your own clothes based on your comments. It's expensive to learn and expensive to do. If you were actually making clothes you'd be more appreciative of the amount of money, time, and skill it takes and would not be acting like it's something everyone can realistically do.

Any ideas where i could find shoes similar to those? Or any winter shoes with pompoms at this point
kek, it's my job to make clothes and patterns, I know how much money, time and what skills it needs to make clothes. I know what it's like to work in a fabric that produces clothes. And I know it's not realistic for everyone, I'm poor myself, I know what that stuff costs, but it's still not a reason to buy your stuff at Primark every other week to be trendy, I rather make a coat myself that I will wear for 10 winters than buy a coat for 20$ that only lasts 2 months. And I didn't mean poor people that buy that bullshit because they have not other choice, I mean people always wanting to be trendy, buying new stuff every week, spending so much money on their clothes a month that they could afford sustainable, well made pieces. >>294646
except when you like seamless laser cut underwear and to make preformed push up bras isn't that easy without the right machines.

I've been watching the tv show Slasher the last days and I'm in love with that pullover. Does anyone know what it's called or what I should look for?
I don't have another image example but the hat is supposed to be velvet material and looks somewhat like a stiff bucket hat and I've seen it worn by women in the 20s
still no idea what the name of the hat is called but it's not a safari or pith hat

Looking to buy some warmer clothes for winter since I don't have many clothes. Kept seeing ads for this kind of coat, and I can't decide if I love or hate it. I think it almost looks a little too cutesy and a bit too much for day-to-day wearing. Might keep looking, but a more subdued style would be cute. I guess I like the shawl and bows and the like. Reviews said it was pretty warm and well-made but the candid pictures I saw looked a bit tacky. Anyways, any thoughts?

Hi nonnies! What are some basic, versatile and comfy brown boots that are pretty lowkey? Waterproof preferred. I wear a lot of sweaters, sweatshirts, and other casual-ish clothing.
I'm still not decided on whether or not I want laces or not or if it matters or creates a more sporty vibe. Also, is the tone of brown relevant to how versatile boots are? I love rich browns.
i have been in those threads before, but theyre dead now and i dont feel like this would be the best place to talk about fashion anyway given the evidence so im asking for if anyone knows another SITE.
for example fw just happened but theres no discussion anywhere on this site about it, i would like a site that has some.
yea the communities are different but ig i was just hoping for a little bit of overlap.
i used to go on /fa/ years ago (embarrassing to admit) and even tho it was obviously all about mens fashion there was actually a decent amount that cared about high end shit so it was ok. it has devolved into total shit newfag posts tho so i stopped going there.
for mens fashion in general there seems to be a lot of guys who make content but i can't find any about female fashion that does the same. i have only found channels about accessories or cheap teen/fast fashion clothing
so ig if anyone knows any female fashion content creators that aren't normies please recommend
The replica is cuter than the real thing. The hearts and bright pink bow on the real thing make it worse.>>295240
If you mean discussing the work of of designers and analyzing it as art, Bliss Foster on youtube (a fashion critic) has a community that loves discussing that stuff, but it's behind a patreon paywell I'm pretty sure. That's the only centralized place for non-normie fashion discussion I can think of.
I think so>>295309>>295321
Thanks nonnies, I'll look into the genius bra and what H&M has
Because women are forced to participate in fashion as part of beauty standards, most beauty sites aimed at women will be relatively normie. Men who are into fashion are doing it out of choice, not obligation, which is why male fashion blogs tend to be more in-depth. Without gatekeeping, most female fashion forums will become general "what clothes wear" forums over time. If you want, start an "expensive/designer fashion" thread and state that it's for discussion of high fashion, I'm sure several nonnas will join you there.
If you're looking for a community, try /r/ffacj_discussion. It's slow but unlike /r/femalefashionadvice you won't get pilloried for wanting to buy expensive clothes. /r/expensivehumanfashion is gender neutral and mostly operates on their discord, but is much more active. PurseForum is exclusively focused on designer brands and relatively active, but it's mostly for purses and shoes, and it's a very particular aesthetic.
the-rosenrot.com has the blog of actual fashion designer with good commentary. youlookfab.com is aimed at old ladies but posts a lot of trends and pricier outfit recs. bluecollarredlipstick is a blog and an instagram of an artsy woman who posts both on fashion and interior design and the connection to art history. I haven't found any good youtubers for female fashion.
thanks for the recommendations anon!
and i never thought about mens vs womens fashion interests being like that but it could definitely be true.
i am lucky i like wearing some mens stuff here and there so i can still enjoy mens content, but i have never found any womens ones that are similar, its disappointing.

If you want some places to look for 1950s style clothing, this list might be of service to you. https://vintagedancer.com/vintage/vintage-inspired-clothing-retro-clothing/
As for lolita, idk what kind of style you like, but I would consider investing in one or two pieces from a classic lolita brand like victorian maiden, maybe an op. I have picrel from victorian maiden and it can very easily be worn outside of lolita, so maybe look out for pieces like that.

yes he is. He is known for making the most gaudy street wear to ever exist. I'll leave it to you to know the kind of people who this kind of aesthetic appeals to.
It sounds like the styles you like are modest, feminine, and fun. Lolita and vintage can both be pretty overwhelming if you don't have much of a fashion sense yet, so I would recommend starting with things that are more toned down. It'll be easier to style and you'll feel more confident. I'd start out with 1 or 2 pairs of nice neutral colored shoes, some cardigans (boleros are pretty in right now and should suit your taste), and some casual dresses.
If you don't know what brands/styles you want start with, explore for a while on Pinterest/insta/TikTok. Some keywords to start with might be "twee" (not super trendy right now but whatever) "softgirl" "girly" "pastel". To make sure you don't go for inspo that's out of date, try to make sure it was posted in the last ~3 years. Also, try buying your clothes in person first. That way you can feel the fabric and make sure clothes fit you how you would like. If you're feeling spendy, a lot of department stores even have personal shoppers available.

I agree with what >>297403
said in terms of practicality and quality; I've had mine for about five years and it hasn't shown any signs of wear apart from the colour. I'd definitely advise getting a dark coloured one cos I have picrel and no matter what they say about being able to clean it, nothing I've tried has ever worked and it looks a bit grubby now

So, I've had this hat my bro gave to me for a while now, I wear a lot of hats, so I've been wanting to wear it but it never looks good with any of my usual attire. It just looks out of place on me I guess. How would one go about styling it? If it's one of those pieces that takes a special person to pull it off, or a very dedicated sort of style I may wait to find the right person to give it away to, since I hate seeing these things go to waste.

Yeah I feel like a newsboy cap only works with outfits that look like they wouldn’t be out of place in 1915 London. I’ve known a couple guys to wear them and they didn’t do this, and the result was always terrible. Compare picrel to what you picture when you think of a fedora-wearer.

Well it doesn't have to be taxidermy wings, it's possible to make some kind of structure with wire and foam or whatever cosplayers use and cover it with feathers.
I once went to an antique shop and found a super cute hat but when I turned it around to get a better look, there was a whole bird head looking at me. I didn't know about taxidermy hats back then, so it really freaked me out

I need new every-day-wear-with-anything sneakers and can't decide which to buy. The first three are a solid combo of trendy and timeless and go with 80% of my wardrobe. The all black forums would go really well with the darker portion of my closet. They remind me of early 00s skate shoes I used to wear in middle school kek. But I fear they will look dated in a year or two. Idk I really like them but I think they're a bit too gorp core for every day wear? I'm almost tempted to buy white sambas that everyone is wearing because they're just so easy to style.

I recognized everything I buy is just because I'm thinking that others may like it. And that I do not have fun with fashion and I have no clue what I'm doing. And I guess not everyone needs to be into fashion. My retarded mind is stuck in highschool and thought I need to be a fashionista to be likeable. That's why I'm dressing like a clown Maybe some nice anon can help me out. I just want to look put together, with a boring ass and safe outfit because I'm really not into fashion. I would like to dress like a business lady. But I have no idea where to start really no idea I'm so lost. If anyone has tips would be so nice… Maybe I check YouTube videos later too. I want to be seen as a responsible nice lady
The dress code is semi-formal, and it will be taking place in a small church. I hate the feeling of tight dresses, so I’d like something on the flowier side. I’m just worried about looking too casual.

I know it's such a basic shirt, but how could I dress it up and make an interesting outfit with it?
I usually don't wear color and thought I'd buy this to move out of my comfort zone a bit (the color looks much more vibrant in person) and would like ways to make it look less basic. Was thinking of pairing it with a black faux leather skirt with tights and ankle boots?
File: 1668035566484.jpg (94.53 KB, 1300x1667, 0005352800_1_2_1.jpg)
First thing I thought, faux leather pants and heavy boots, ankle boots with these heavy platforms would look great too, they're pretty popular nowadays; so we have very similar idea here. I'd either fully tuck the shirt or french tuck it. Small leather backpack or handbag as an accessory.
Otherwise, kinda similar but less edgy because not leather, pants and shoes like picrel, shirt fully tucked, black beret maybe?

take inspo from pinterest
pieces you need
- turtleneck tops
- mini skirts like in the pic
- straight pants
- long coats
- simple sweaters
choose warm colours wear simple accessories

You're kind of like me. I generally don't care about what I wear too much and am not that creative and so I stick to basic pieces/neutral palettes. This has led me to wear east coast ivy league prep style clothing. It's really basic and my clothes usually consist of a sweater, jeans, loafers, basic t-shirts, and cardigans. However, this is a very costly fashion style. If you wear the wrong, cheap pieces you'll look incoherent or like a tryhard. If you overdo it (wearing pieces like tennis sweaters outside of the court), you'll look like a preppy caricature. Requires a lot of research and has a list of brands to buy from. It was simple enough for me and the research was fun. Also wear more colors that suit your skintone; this is especially easy to follow in a neutral palette. The image you attached is pretty frumpy. Make sure you have clothes that actually fit you and flatter your body.
It unironically feels rebellious to wear too amongst all the gaudy Depop type outfits people wear now.

>>299535>Not even close.
Not trying to be snarky but these look pretty similar to me
Preppy can be either VERY casual or highly affected and can also be more cutesy and scruffy. Not kawaii or egirl cutesy, more cheeky. Think rolled up pants cuffs, patched up blazers, unbuttoned or rumpled collars, pattern mixing, worn down shoes, short hemlines, sportswear worn with more formal clothing for a high low mix. Business casual is meant to look rather boring and sexless-the most you can get away with is a loud print. While a blazer, an Oxford shirt, and a pair of loafers may be items the two styles share in common, one would wear different items or style them differently in both contexts. As much as J. Crew circa 2010 tried to convince you otherwise, they are not the same

my friend wears super cute clothes, she has basically picked a "theme" for her life (a plant she likes) and bases her whole style around it, it sounds a bit silly but i really admire that and i think her whimsical vibe suits her perfectly. plus i can't imagine anyone ever has trouble finding gifts to give her lol. i also want to have a "thing" like that but i'd wanna pick 50 different things because of my commitment issues ughh (picture is just an example btw, neither of us dress anything like that but it's still cute)
do you like doing themed outfits nonnies?
I don't see it as childish but I agree with the other nona (>>299999) that it's really obvious when someone dresses this way because they're eccentric and think everything is cuter with cherries on it versus when someone is trying to emulate that.
However, the overall thing you want is achievable. What do you like so much that you would wear at least one image of it every day? If you like horses, congrats, every store on this planet sells something with a horse on it. Go nuts. If you like pangolins, you're going to spend many years slowly accumulating the odd knick-knack or piece of jewelry. Be patient.
Most importantly, be genuine, or you won't be able to stick to anything.
you're right, authenticity is the problem here. i guess i've always been "eccentric" too but i come off more like a freak and not cute/cohesive, but maybe that's ok.>>300006
i love pangolins how did you know.. and thank you, this is really good advice, like if i already know i enjoy collecting knick-knacks i could start from there.>>300018
i already did all of that btw. still have an identity crisis.

as someone who does dress mono-thematically like this, it happened gradually. I like the color red and heart motifs and over time, just buying what I liked without much thought the majority of what I owned was red and/or had hearts on it kek. I think there's a good chance of you growing bored of the theme if you force yourself to buy a ton of stuff at once, and it's definitely not for everyone. tbh I wonder if it's somehow autism-related

Does any anonita know brands that make winter jackets that are warm and look like pic rel? I really like the semi-cropped oversized look but most jackets that have that aren't warm enough. I live in Scandinavia so something that can protect me from the -25C inhumane weather.
I can guarantee that if someone saw you and the other anon out and about they would not think you dress preppy, but for the office. Obviously short mini skirts in tartan are not business cas but >my clothes usually consist of a sweater, jeans, loafers, basic t-shirts, and cardigans.
absolutely is just business casual. This does not sound like the trendy tik tok preppy style to me.

Aritzia’s mega puff (picrel) or super puff. Just size up a size or two for an extra-oversized look.
I own their long super puff and it’s an extremely warm jacket.

I live in Ohio where it sometimes gets -15F in the winter. The reason the aritzia puffers are so warm & so expensive is that they use “responsibly sourced” goose down. Down is much warmer than any poly fill material could be, and it costs a lot to get down from mills that aren’t excessively torturing their birds before slaughter. Imo a good down coat is a must-have in a cold climate and is just one of those things you have to shell out some big bucks for as an investment and plan to keep in your wardrobe for years.

I know anons love Iris Van Herpen here but which big name fashion brands or houses are your favorite or the best in your opinion? I love Dior, esp when Galliano did their couture collections. Im also liking the Maria Grazia Chiuri years, but I consider Raf Simmons to have been a bust even if profits grew during that time. Picrel is a cottage core look from Galliano’s years as creative director—that tiny man was ahead of his time. I’m usually not a fan of cottage core stuff either. I also love Galliano’s usage of rococo, mod, and 1920s(?) fashion.
File: 1669538644116.jpg (654.86 KB, 1343x2048, gettyimages-1314723525-2048x20…)
Galliano was a visionary. Spring 2004 is one of my favorite runways of all time. He put out so many amazing collections that it's really hard to pick a favorite. The stuff that passes for couture now is laughable.
i think it's more so this one is just crazy…
it's like not a conspiracy but it is? idk how else to describe it
i'm talking about all the other stuff in the photos and not just the bear. the bear ad itself is not the issue to me
but with the other photos it's all so weird.
but then who do you point the finger at?? how many knew??? was it just one guy that was designing the sets being a creep or was it a whole team??? most people wouldn't notice stuff like that
i should mention i have had the matching bag to the shoes for almost a year… so if i return the shoes do i just say fuck the bag and never use it again? it was still a big purchase for me so i feel wasteful. if i just continue using the bag like i was before do i get labeled as a pedo supporter or something
the answer to some of your questions are here >>>/ot/1417898
fwiw i don't think it's a conspiracy/tinfoil either but that's where most of the info about this is. too long to paste it all here
You should return the shoes. Not because balenciaga has been unceremoniously cancelled for their cringe marketing campaign snafu, but because they will almost certainly make you look like a try-hard fashion victim
it's not hard to pull off some black boots anon…
anyway i contacted the SA about a return earlier so i have to wait for what she says

Nonas, do you have experiences in buying underwear online?
I really need a good place that specially has big size bras for women who aren't big themselves, when i have to look for one IRL i just end up crying because it's really stressful and i feel like there's nothing that fits me.
If i find something decent, it's some ugly cream colored grandma looking one that wears off in 2 months.
I hope i don't ask for too much but i don't like to wear mismatched stuff and i like lacy/floral/frilly designs (nothing childish), i just wish to wear something that i feel comfortable in but also like.
I’ve had an alpaca wool sweater for like 10 years and it’s definitely stood the test of time, great quality but it definitely does pill. I don’t find it itchy at all tbh.
Does anyone have any very unknown brands that they like to shop at? Or sites that have shit like that? I’m so tired of all this basic shit. I have a taste for every style.. maybe something a bit more eccentric if that helps.i posted this in ot as well for max responses if you feel like your having deja vu
Gorman, Obus, Elk, babaà, Paloma, Romance was born, Marimekko, Leonard Street, Ganni, Dodo Bar Or, Solomon Street, Louisa Ballou.
Often I'll just browse Wolf & Badger to find new brands too.

fuck i miss hipsters
I remember a fuckton of detailed cute tops and blouses being sold in 2012 or so and I happened to be kind of broke then, sad. After the peter pan collars were over, there was this kind of lacy dainty era of tops with delicate ribbons and whatever. So I look forward to this resurgence, whenever it will happen.
Of course I am an adult now with more income so it shouldn't matter to me what H&M or whatever the fuck is selling. It's more how I remember looking and wanting and deciding I needed to spend my money on a pair of decent professional shoes (here I mean a pair of €60 shoes for interviews) vs. on stuff that looked pretty but might fall apart. But I have all these weird memories of finally being interested in owning pretty things and then just having to browse and turn away. They aren't even bad memories. idk how to describe it but they feel quasi-cinematic. kek sorry

nonnies, please help. I have to attend a wedding and I thought I would feel confident in a dress I had already, but I'm going through something hormonal. I have a big cyst on my ovary (next ultrasound will determine what gets done about it), and I look puffy where normally I have a slim/flat stomach. I've been working out as normal and dealing with the pain but it's driving me insane that am going to my friend's wedding and potentially looking weird or bloated.
Some of it is my BDD but I don't care, I want to look pretty and not weird. The dress isn't bodycon or anything but now I feel like I want to cover up. I will reply later with a pic because this fucking moid sitting behind me keeps gawking at my screen whenever I pull up dress, fuck him. It's a spaghetti strap dress kind of like picrel, just shorter (right above my knee) and with more chest coverage.
Is there a type of blazer I could get to make myself feel better? Not necessarily to cover the abdomen but as a mental comfort for my BDD? Or is there a universally flattering dress I can buy somewhere? Wedding is in a warm climate. Dress code is "festive" or basically whatever we want. I'm 171cm, size small but with larger chest (28 or 30E cup size). So I need to be able to wear a bra. I have a strapless bra already. I just want to look cute and confident even if my abdomen looks puffy, nonnies
thanks nonna, will look around for a skirt.
also ordered some kind of shapewear and will see if that minimizes my abdomen a bit. It does kind of hurt to compress that area so I will ask my dr if this is safe

This dress is really great, I have one and it’ll cover you up great on the lower half. You can even pull it up a little more than in the pics so the bottom half is higher
This is such a cute bag and if you set out to sew it yourself or have someone else sew it for you like anon said here >>304095
, I mean the possibilities and pattern/stuffed bear combinations are really endless!
Piggybacking off >>297433
, careful with the color. I have a pink one and the stains don’t lift much. The material it is made of makes it naturally water resistant, but I’ve heard that you still have to be careful and gentle when washing of course. I would take mine to school and the blue sweaters I would wear left blue stains all over the back and bottom. I really hate it, and I only noticed it until it was too late. It also just has a lot of stains on the edges. That being said (I’ve also had mine for 5 years), it held up. The only thing wrong is that the zippers inside tend to fray a lot.

I miss 2010-2016 fashion because it felt unapologetically cute. It had simplicity while still having detail. I’m not even minimalist in my fashion, but I feel like lots of the fashion I see nowadays is shit flinging to see what sticks and being bored. I also feel like maybe I’m really stuck in this kind of fashion because it was something I felt I understood inside and out. I’ve seen how fashion developed after this, but I didn’t feel like I was part of it anymore. I’m glad lookbook still exists so I could look at old outfits like this and old lolita coords.
I love the way annika victoria would dress, and this outfit is older then when I would watch her but I like it nonetheless. I’ll admit that sometimes I look at the pulp girl zines shit tuna used to be a part of and find inspiration in those outfits.

I have stupidly shaped feet (wide in the front, super narrow in the back) and I want to dress more femininely but I cannot find shoes that look cute and fit me.

The outsole and heel, you can't see well on that image because it's on a black floor but the outsole is a black platform and then a heel has this glass look to it. Picrel is on a lighter background. Olympia Le Tan are stilettos. Toe box and heal seam on the originals are also more ballet shoe like. When you take a deeper look they're not that similar, no one really owns the ballet shoe style, if Le Tan's didn't have the little bow on the toebox I wouldn't have made the connection.
Anon, pleaseee lmk if the dress worked out for you or what you’re going with, I’m invested.>>304570

nonna, you saved my life tbh. I got that dress in dark grey and brought a cropped jacket in case I got cold (I didn't). It worked very well. I did wear some compression high-waisted underwear to make myself feel better. I'm still upset that this happened right before the event but you helped me out a lot. I didn't have anyone else to help me! I'm just eager to have a verdict on what will happen with the cyst. I'm not even eating much because I feel full all the time.

So I got this dress for an event next month, and I can zip it up but it wrinkles a lot along the sides not like the picture even though it’s a thicker fabric, especially around my waist. Is this a sizing issue or an issue from it being strapless? I like it and how it fits overall but this kind of makes it look sloppy imo which bothers me because I want to look my best

Probably something like picrel and a matching cardigan if it's cold and some brown or cream fur details would also be cool. And of course lots of silver and pearl jewelry. Alternatively you could wear them over a blouse with frills/lace and either a skirt or dress-pants. Also SAUCE??? I fucking love those
something really baggy / wide / flaired to contrast with how tight the top is. >>306814

OK not bad! I feel like you've read my mind as I've been looking at skirts like that. You can find the tops at depop and ebay if you search raven deadstock.>>306816>some chunky shoes or boots and eye makeup like you've been caught in a rainstorm
Ooh I like the sound of that. From your suggestions I'm thinking of something like picrel.
I'm on the fashion thread for fashion advice, not life advice. Thanks anyway.>>306672
I have no intention of supporting her either. Thanks for the rec though.
Why do we even have a fashion thread if caring about your silhouette shape isn't allowed?>Ruining this site
That's more than a little dramatic, don't you think?

where do i actually find underwear that's both cute and affordable? looking for both stuff that passes for daily wear and ~sexy lingerie~
genuinely feels like an impossible task. i love vintage look underwear with silk and lace especially (pic not related lol, these are just cute) but those listings on etsy and depop are obviously way outside of sane price range.

I made a collage of outfits I think look similar. If you search whimsigoth on Pinterest you might find what you're looking for. If you want something edgier, search for casual goth outfits.
They’re useful for those of us who don’t have completely flat stomachs or a little chub here and there.
I’m normal bmi with violin hips and need them to even out the stomach area whem wearing tight sitting dresses or skirts… I look terrible without them.

I miss the days when peak fashion was skinny jeans, oversized sweater, ankle boots. It was so easy to get dressed

Nta, but why? I think they are very comfortable when fitted correctly, and they don't make me look like a fridge (I don't like crop tops on myself and hate low rise jeans too tbf)
Pay attention to seams. How is the stitching? Are there any loose threads? Are the seams reinforced? If there’s a pattern, did they match up the pattern? Seams are a good indicator of quality.
Design warning signs to look out for: drawstrings, non-functional pockets or buttons, exposed zippers, sheer and flimsy fabric, tops that only have a pattern on one side, unlined dresses/jackets/skirts. While these are not always indicative of poor quality and can sometimes be stylistic choices, they tend to show that the designer cut corners.
reposting to reword>>309574
nta, they're flattering on some people i wouldn't say theyre the devil but they make me look ridiculously emaciated and flat or highlights it rather in a tranny way, in other words fridgelike. i don't think skinny jeans look very good on thin people but obviously they look better on people with nicer body types so it's really a personal thing. that said your picrel looks really good

Can you anons recommend me European slow fashion brands that are colorful? I'm trying to consume more ethical clothes but everything is beige, white or black. The colors can be a semi-muted (?) like pic rel.
Lucy & Yak is great for colorful pants and dungarees! They are also really size inclusive.
They also have some kind of tax agreement going, so you don't have to deal with duty when ordering from th EU.

If you don't mind the hippie art teacher look Gudrun Sjödén has some super comfy and very resistant clothes, as well as a lot of colorful basics. I don't know if they are considered slow fashion but they do try to have a more ethical approach

I am not sure if this really counts as fashion, but does anybody have any suggestions for exotic/trendy but still good quality lingerie? I've been recently wanting one or two pieces/sets of the impractical lingerie you see cows and ethots preening in (such as this example that Shayna wore kek. I find it cute, sue me), but a lot of it comes from cheap ass places like Shein. I'd take something a bit less "trendy" in design if it means that maybe it's not doused in industrial chemicals.
File: 1675298758714.jpg (110.51 KB, 750x750, 678123.jpg)
Research into independent brands, they're usually expensive but good quality & fit. Trendy thot lingerie are in that shein fast fashion circle. I follow a UK brand called Buttress & Snatch, they do more vintage/pinup inspired stuff but it's all handmade & they use sustainable fabrics, picrel is one of their cute set
This silhouette.. are top heavy silhouettes coming back in style? I love that>>309567
And throwing on a pair of baggy jeans and a top isn't easy? I like 10's fashion as well but I don't see how dressing like this is easier than current styles. (If anything baggy jeans are far more easier to get into and out of than skinny jeans. Don't miss that aspect of skinnies)

I love my Fossil Syndey Satchel! It holds wayyyyy more than it looks like and the 2 zippers go all the way down the sides of the bag so it's easy to find things if you need to
Maybe you’re using clothing as a way to reinvent yourself or not be bored instead of confronting your real issues, so you keep getting into a cycle of trying to buy a new identity and then getting bored with it because you realize it isn’t fulfilling .
To be honest, I usually just put limits on the clothing I buy so they all end up cohesive, regardless of style (color palette, fabric, print).

I’ve been debating on getting these jeans but I always get a size or two up since I fluctuate in size and there’s no way of me to belt these jeans at all

Do you have any sewing skills? If so, could you add an elastic band in the back? If not have you cosidered clipping the back with dress cincher?
They are from urban outfitters >>311679
I was thinking about maybe putting some elastic on it but the dress clinchers sound like a better idea! Thanks anon!

I've considered getting one or two of these shirts since they look easy to style with what I already wear often, being white or light colored shirts, black pants, boots, casual jewelry and sometimes a hat. Dunno if there's a point in going into the specifics. I already own button down shirts in both white and black, and I wonder if a sleeveless one would look cute when the weather gets hotter, but when I looked to see if I wanted to buy one, most of them seemed rather thin and poorly fitted, so I decided not to buy any, since it would just look baggy and sloppy rather than cute and casual. Has anyone made these work? I like wearing white button downs with black pants because of the versatility, and I wonder if I'm honestly just being autistic about this and there's no point in even fussing over something so minuscule when I already noted that most of them seem poorly fitted or of low quality material.
