ZARA RUFFLES + H&M DENIM
PHOTOS BY JENDAYI ASHA
Yes Ma'am! I'm serving you all types of Prince Purple Rain frills mixed with Little House on the Prairie with a dab of me! Although my wardrobe and style is kinda basic, I love a good statement piece that catches your eye. Clearly this shirt does that. When I saw it on Zara.com, I quickly put it in my cart because I had to have it! Shout out to H&M for making these high waisted jeans that hug every curve of my on the boarder plus size frame AND in extended lengths! I can never buy jeans without a long inseam and they're always hard to find in-store so H&M online is my best friend. Finally, these color block shoes gave you one last pop of style to this ensemble that are at least 5 years old but clearly still in fashion because I said so.
The key to buying faddish items like color block shoes or ruffle shirts is to only buy one piece while in season. Don't fill your entire closet with it and also invest a little money into the item. I'm not saying break the bank, but a price point higher than F21. Although I'll only wear this shirt a couple times this season, I'm sure that I can pair this shirt under a jumper dress or vest in the fall.
How do you feel about the ruffles? Yay or nay?
