So...I very impulsively (and quite strongly) wish to have my pants match my hair (OK not really, just the ombre part, not the metallic; fwiw username checks out and I do have way too many colorful/shiny articles of clothing :hahano:). Black-to-silver jeans--which one, or neither?
Option A:

Option B (which I'd be inclined to wear with very much a boyfriend fit, ie, baggier than on the model):

Or do they both suck/are way too trendy, and I'm really just being an impulsive brat? I've been eyeing them for a while, and I *think* I'd get enough wears out of them to justify the end-of-season discounted price...? Ugh. Halp pls?

I like the fade of the first pair, it's a more gradual ombre; but in my opinion, the fit in conjunction with the crop is a little awkward. Also, I can't tell if the denim is matte or wicked? Not a huge fan of the wicked look unless it's actual leather. Ultimately, I wouldn't wear either but I like the second pair more.

I have been in search of asymmetry lately ever since I realized that my wardrobe's weakness was its lack of interesting
geometry. I found this super cool vest thing but am hesitant to buy it because every piece in my closet fulfills a functional purpose as well as a style one, whereas this is really just style. Curious about your takes on this really unique piece!

I vote YES! I am a fan of unique pieces like this; I think they can really elevate an outfit. Whilst yes, it is "just style", I think it is quite versatile and could be worn in a variety of ways, eg. with a dress like the model in the photo, with a leather mini-skirt, leather pants, jeans...Personally, I would buy it.

Btw, is the piece Acne Studios by any chance? The shoes that the model is wearing look exactly like a pair of backless Acne Studios heels that I own...

Does anyone have the Dyson Airwrap? It looks magical but is it worth $550? Has money lost all meaning in my increasingly frantic quest to fill the quarantine void?

I have the dryer and the airwrap, which I got screwed on because I bought the dryer when it came out so didn't get the slight price benefit that I'm pretty sure you get when you buy them together.
It works well and is very easy and quick, especially if you have long, thick hair. If you have especially long hair you might have some trouble fitting it all on the curler. I love mine, is is worth 500$? No, but if you have the flexibility it will save you time and deliver a salon-quality blowout much faster, and with drybar being closed......

The only reason Im sceptical is because I don't actually need them, I just really REALLY love them. 😅❤ Yay or nay?

I'm personally not the biggest fan, they don't look well made (the seam at the toe is separating/visible even in this picture). Not sure where they're from but the design also kind of screams fast fashion to me, like Boohoo or something. If you're looking for block heels that are still affordable, I would go for something a little more classic and delicate like these Maddens. 1594244308565.png

I love the details here, the color, the length and the fact that I can cinch my waist however I please.

Granted, it doesn't look the best on the model here (tbh it looked better on me when I tried it on).


I saw this dress in H&M this morning.. It fit like a glove and I wanted to buy it instantly because I rarely find something that is a perfect fit (especially dresses). However I have a personal shopping rule - before I buy anything, I ask myself: do I need that? And where am I gonna wear it?

So I said I'm gonna sleep on it and decide later. This is where I need your help 😬 I could wear it for New Years Eve, private parties.. And it's not expensive at all.

Did you decide on whether or not to get the dress? I couldn’t find the dress on the H&M app (I assume it sold out). I’d be wary of the fabric/composition—make sure it’s not cheap and itchy! Otherwise, I think the dress would be really cute for NYE, small parties, and dinners :)

I decided to get the dress in the end :slutboobs: I see your concern but I tried the dress in the store and the inside is not made out of the same material as the outside, instead it's silky smooth. The sleeves aren't that problematic either since they're not made out of rough lace fabric (and it's not touching my arms at all).

I'm definitely going to wear it on a few special occasions!
