So I don’t shop at Frederick’s of Hollywood, but who knew they sold daytime dresses (in addition to predictable looking club wear)? I attempted to find any piece of clothing that I remotely liked to post as a sample of their offerings, but failed. If anything, the shoes and accessories above are my choice likes.
Recently, I’ve been hooked on fingerless gloves and so when I saw the Chainlink Glovelets, I was immediately drawn to them. I don’t wear thigh highs, but if I did, I’d pick up the Zippered Jersey ones because well, I like anything with full-length zippers these days… a la my American Apparel zipper leggings. The Waist Cincher is an amazing stand-in for a belt and can be thrown on oversized t-shirts or a boyfriend plaid shirt just like Ashley Olsen had worn.
Then we get to the shoes, and they are way cheap. I only liked the ones above because I’m a fan of ankle cuffs. Of course, they offer the gladiator all-the-way-up-your-leg sandals, along with a pair of over-the-knee boots. But I’ll pass on those.
After getting over my amazement with Frederick’s non-lingerie wear, I clicked on over to Topshop.com, which has become part of my daily routine. Bought the items below.
Admittedly, I’m modest about showing off too much skin, but I took a chance and got the Cut out Bodycon dress. Plus, it’s cheaper than the Stylestalker version. The zebra bodysuit will be my first bodysuit since wearing them circa early 90′s? They were all the rage back then, but now I just hope I don’t end up with a wedgie when I wear this one. Love the shape of the quilted chain tote because it reminds me of the bags I used to wear back in junior high. And I love angel wings, so I picked up the belt too. Of course it’s now available in a pretty coral color the day after I buy the gray one.
Dear Topshop, why must you constantly update your site with amazing new things after I make a purchase. I’m not a fan of your flat $15 shipping fee either. Can we work on that? UPDATE: Topshop must have read my mind because now shipping is $10 during June!
And thank you for all the kind comments below! Isn’t it amazing how a simple compliment can totally lift you up and make your day? I take joy in the little things in life, and they definitely made my day, so muchas gracias!
