Welcome to the first #TSABDTrend
So when I announced I’d be blogging differently this year (read the post here if you missed it), I made mention that TSABD Trend would be a series I post on Thursdays (when available—alternatively I also post my TSABD at Home posts on Thursdays when available as well) where I showcase some sort of a fashion trend. For today’s inaugural post I’ll be talking about some un-basic “basic” shoes for work. Ready? Leggo!
I swore I wasn’t going to buy anything for Black Friday or Cyber Monday—that’s because I got wind of many of the deals early on and decided I didn’t need anything. Then of course some brands were super silent about their deals and when they hit I was at my computer like this…
Fellow shoppers, we’re at a critical moment here. In just a few days the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale—the annual event where Nordstrom generously discounts brand new items for the upcoming season for a short period of time and also introduces special Nordstrom exclusive beauty sets and deals—will be coming to a close. Many of you probably have shopped the sale, but if you’re a shopping enthusiast like me, the last few days of the sale might have you like “Wait, did I miss anything????” To help alleviate you from any instances of FOMO (fear of missing out) I made a short list of nine items you don’t want to miss before the prices go up on Monday, August 3rd.
Yup, you can rock denim on denim—aka the Canadian tuxedo—without looking like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake way back when at the MTV Awards. In fact I wore this same denim shirt with my fave Gap boyfriend shorts (which I need to get taken in because they’re too big for me now—I mean I bought them a size or two bigger than I needed to get the slouch I wanted but now that I’ve lost some weight, they’re WAY too big and Gap hasn’t made this exact style since I got them) when I snapped pics around Chicago last summer with Nas.
I own a gazillion pairs of shoes but if I were to be forced to downsize for whatever reason, there’s about five types I’d have to have. So because I love shoes and I’m creating more fashion videos on my Youtube channel (make sure you subscribe!) I decided to do a quick, fun video highlighting the types of shoes to have in your closet.
2014 was a pretty interesting year for my style. I went from tomboy-ish and oversized to form-fitting and feminine-ish…lol. I also lost some weight (see how I did it here) and while I probably should have been following my own advice about how to dress when losing or gaining weight, I did not and was kinda buying clothes all the time…lol. Like I’d go down a size and buy something new immediately knowing full well that I wasn’t near goal weight yet. Ugh, but it was so fun and the clothes kept calling me…lol.
