DRESS/ ZAFUL (HERE)
HEELS/ PUBLIC DESIRE
Back again with Zaful on today’s post! I know I don’t frequently wear colors, but this little dress caught my eye, and it caught Zuri off-guard. Off shoulder tops and dresses have been getting some hype, so I decided to try them out for myself. As you may or may not know, I am short (5’2 but my license says 5’1, whatever). because I am petite, I usually shy away from dresses that are not bodycon. I feel that my shape gets lost, so I tend to balance a baggy top with some nice Levi’s shorts, for example. This dress, on the other hand, was the perfect length for me, and the off shoulder details distract from the fact that is a relatively loose dress. It also has some flattering slits on each side, which I personally loved. The fabric was light and perfect for the Texas heat. Hallelujah.
Side Note: I recommend that you read the measurements, and pick the sizing accordingly.
BRA TOP/ ZAFUL (here)
WHITE CROP/ FOREVER 21
So first things first, as I explained in my baby tee post, the way to achieve the look is to buy a kids tee and cut it. I realized that while I was typing that post, and after I had taken these pictures, which is why the crop in this post has a scoop neck. It would have definitely looked much better with the cut kids tee, but hey, you live and you learn. The lace bra top, though, is one of my favorite pieces in my closet as of lately. If I’m daring enough, I’ll wear it by itself with a blazer on top when it gets cooler. So some of you might have heard of Zaful, and some of you might be absolutely clueless. I personally thought the price range was great, and the selection of clothing was trendy. Here are my top three pieces from Zaful: 1, 2, and 3. Aside from those, you can shop the bralette I am wearing here, and you can check out how I felt about the packaging here. I had never tried anything like this, but the layering trend going on right now is not bad at all. I am currently looking into purchasing a silky slip dress, and a silky top. Wish me luck.
If any of you keep up with Monica Rose’s Instagram, you have probably noticed that it. is. everything. One of my recent favorites was Kendall’s lace bra top over the white baby tee. Of course, I am a broke girl so it’s been a difficult internal battle for me. The Anine Bing bra top is pricey, and I cannot find it in me to spend that much on a sheer bra top. After almost giving up, I found an extremely affordable option on Zaful. You already know I hit that checkout button. Love it? Check out the bra top here.
