Shut up and take my money

Today, I found out about Poshmark.

Basically, it’s an online place where you can sell all the things from your closet you no longer what or use. While you’re there, you can also shop others’ items. There’s everything on there and every brand, and some of the items are new. There is a lot more to the website, but that’s the main idea. In the 12 hours I have known about it, I have already posted almost 30 items. It was liberating to purge my closet, and will probably be posting more in the next couple days. If you download their free app, it is even easier to maneuver Poshmark. It seriously takes less than 1 minute to create a post for the item you want to sell. You can create a profile which makes it easier for Poshmark to know what to show you. I have a feeling the money I make from my clothes will be spent buying others clothes, and I am so excited!

Since I am still new to Poshmark (username is carianngz), feel free to suggest awesome people to follow on there!

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring

ImageImage

It may technically be Spring, but the weather does not know it (some days). It takes me FOR-EV-ER to decide what to wear when the temperature outside is not warm but not cold. It’s at that awkward in between feeling where you are fanning yourself one minute and shivering the next. To help you decide what to wear on those days, listen to Nanette Lepore’s advice from the launching of The Collective at Bloomingdale’s New York. “Put on your pretty frilly dresses and work it out with the tights, and throw on the big sweater. Just start layering up into the looks that you want to eventually get into. I think you just want to start feeling , even if the weather isn’t cooperating. It’s gonna have to happen sooner or later, so you gotta just push it.” Don’t be afraid of fashion fusion! Now, bring on the warm weather so I can get ready faster!

 

Grammy Fashion

The 2014 Grammys did not let me down! Of course, before the grammys, I watched the live red carpet coverage to see what people were wearing. Like everyone else, I had my favorites, and my not so favorites. To stay on the positive side, I only want to talk a little about the ones I did like.

Image I loved Chrissy and John’s looks. He looks dapper and well tailored, and she looks stunning. I love a metallic dress almost as much as Taylor Swift loves flesh colored dresses. I think her styling is great and not too over the top. She let the dress make a statement.

Image I think Ciara is rocking that pregnancy glow! She looks beautiful while showing off that growing bump. I just wish she would have fixed her hair.

Image Every year, I am so happy to see Katy in something whimsical yet elegant. I like how literal this dress takes the Grammys.

Image I know I’m going to get some flack for this one, but OH WELL. I like how over the top Kacey’s “mariachi chic” outfit is….or maybe I just like saying “mariachi chic”! It was cute with her performance set, and the boots light up. Tacky? Yes. Loveable? YES! Embrace your inner Southern child….you know you wanted light up cowboy boots when you were little!

Image Oh. mah. gah. One of my absolute favorites! She killed it in this dress. I think she looks way better in it than the runway model. The way it changed colors when the light hit it just right was stunning. Her curves make it oh so sexy too. Can she wear her hair like this more often. It looks great on her! Go Rita, Go Rita, Go!

Image Of course, I have Taylor on my list! TYPICAL, I know. That dress was awesome, though! That’s a heavy material. Kudos to her for being able to stand up in it. Her figure looks perfect in this dress. I’m more and more jealous with every letter I type. As much I like this dress, I wish she would mix it up a little. I can’t remember the last awards show where she didn’t wear something red, metallic, or flesh colored. Take a fashion risk…you’ve earned it!

ImageOther than John Legend, my favorite male outfit had to be Macklemore. I love this color, so I am a little biased. It looks great with his skin and hair and was tailored pretty well. I can’t lie. I want this jacket for me. I will totally rock a velvet dark teal jacket!
