OOTD: Oversized Jumper Look

Hey peeps. I have another outfit post for your viewing and commenting pleasure. This is my 3rd outfit post of the year, and I am very happy with my progress so far, as far as outfit posts are concerned. I am slaying, if I may say so myself.

You will easily catch me rocking an oversized jumper these days. I love the oversized jumper look. It is just super comfy for these extra chilly days. I also find them very easy to style with good old leggings. It is a look anybody can get right. It is so easy, I don’t have to over think or second guess the styling. An oversized jumper look is great for those days when I want to look casual but chic, and it works every time.

I had the golden opportunity to pick out some pieces by Apricot, and I was super thrilled. It was my first time shopping the brand and I was well impressed with website; so easy to navigate. My order went smoothly and I got my pieces in about 3 days, which is fantastic with the crazy January sales going on. I wasn’t expecting to my delivery to come so quickly.

Speaking of January sales, have you spotted any crazy bargains? I have seen a few online and in stores, and I did get a few things. I suggest you get in their as soon as possible and grab what you need while they are on sale. All the pieces I got from Apricot were half price. I am wearing 2 of them here, and will be featuring the other 2 pieces in a different outfit post.

Kendall Jenner vs Jennifer Lopez in Balmain

Hey peeps. Long time no “Who wore it better” post right? Well the series is back with a vengeance this year, so fashion and style lovers should keep their eyes open.I promise the posts would be worth reading.

Kendall Jenner and Jennifer Lopez battle it out in this stunning sheer jumpsuit from Balmain‘s spring 2016 collection, and I am loving it.

Kendall Jenner walked the runway in this fierce look at the Balmain show at Paris Fashion week while Jennifer Lopez rocked hers to her 47th birthday in Las Vegas. Who do you think wore it better? My money is on Lopez and I will tell you why.

Jenner ruined her look with the belt and choker. This Balmain jumpsuit is already doing all the talking, any accessories should be minimal. But I guess Kendall Jenner did not get that memo, and instead went all out with her accessories. It looks too much, I am struggling to see the beauty of the jumpsuit.

Jennifer Lopez looks good in her jumpsuit. I can see the beauty of the piece, and it looks amazing next to her gold skin. Her bodyshape also stands out in this Balmain Jumpsuit. I love it on her, and I think she slayed it!

Now I won’t wear this piece because I think it is super revealing, so not for me. But I do appreciate amazing pieces on “Only the Brave” like these women right here, and that is what this fashion series is about. Appreciting stylish pieces on men and women, and deciding on who wore it better.

What are your thoughts? Who do you think wore this sheer Balmain jumpsuit better? Kendall Jenner or Jennifer Lopez?

Please sound off in the comment section below, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and commenting as always. Have a beautiful day.

 

Ashley Graham Covers British Vogue January 2017

The beautiful American model – Ashley Graham covers the January 2017 issue of British Vogue, and she looks divine on it. I have never heard of this beauty before so it was kind of good to see her on a Vogue cover. I am not completely surprised she is on it though, Vogue tends to feature models a lot more than regular celebs which is kind of good thing I guess.

This issue sounds like a good read. Here are a few excerpts from Graham’s interview with the magazine –

 

Her career journey:

“For 10 years I’d been told I was always going to be a catalogue girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom. See, if you have a pretty face doors will open, but your job isn’t just to walk through them, it’s to get invited back,” she told D’Souza. “Look, I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it, but that’s not enough, you’ve got to have more to have longevity in this business. It’s always been, ‘OK, so what can I do now?’”

I agree with what she has said here completely. The job is to get invited back.

 

On being called a plus size model:

“When we’re supposed to be talking about diversity for women, it feels so divisive and purpose-defeating, giving us yet another label,” she said. She does, however, acknowledge that her body shape, and positive promotion of it, has been not only her own USP, but an inspiration to millions of women who feel forgotten when it comes to finding fashion to fit.

I like the fact that Ashley Graham looks happy in her own skin.

I am on the fence with this issue. I am not sure if I would be picking up a copy or not.
