Outfits: Bloomingdale's Picks

Bloomingdale's is not on the map for collegiate/teen fashion so, I was excited to find these hidden jewels in their outlet store. My main shopping mission was to find pieces that complimented a short petite figure. Let me know how I did?

I started off the outfit selection with a mid-thigh skater skirt and loose blouse, tucked in. I didn't even have to look for jewelry because the blouse is already embellished with diamonds in the shape of a collar. The head band is a cute addition for colder days during the winter. You won't have to sacrifice warmness for cuteness is this ensemble. 

This outfit can work for all shapes and sizes. If you own black leggings then this top would be a great addition to your closet. This is a tri-layered top and black leggings ensemble. The top's base layer is a loose blouse, next frills that accent the striped crop top. I imagine this top perfect for lazy days where I want to look like I tried or even if I actually tried I could easily transform from day to night situations. 

This is the same skater skirt ensemble depicted earlier however, I removed the headband {and added a bit more sass}.

I have more pictures from my Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, Bloomingdale's visit on my facebook page (essential poses that every fashion blogger uses).

This outfit is a similar build of the skater skirt ensemble however, add a few more doses of pizazz and we get this. Outfit: Golden tutu and a black button up tank top to tone done the tutu. I love the gold in this outfit because it compliments my brown hair beautifully. With a two-tone outfit like this a pop of color with lipstick or accessories is great.

What is your go-to figure flattering outfit?

About the blogger:

Hey y'all! This weekend I will be joining my campus Cru organization to NY for #CruEpicenter2015 or in other worlds: 
"A 4-day conference where hundreds of college students GATHER around Jesus in transformational community. They GROW in grace and truth, to love and serve through prayer, powerful stories, Biblical teaching, and practical training. As a result, they GO to serve all nations with Christ’s unlimited capacity to love."
I will be posting a few tweets and instagram post about the conference so, that will be happening on my accounts till Monday evening! 

P.S This post was honestly for my benefit. It forced me to figure out where I can find the closest and best food location for this conference. My stomach begs to differ that this is an amazing guide for our short lunch intermissions.

Bloomingdale's Budget Guy

GQ, D'Marge and other men fashion publications alike have all overlooked Bloomingdale's throughout 2014 for budget friendly men fashion. Bloomingdale's, most notably their outlet locations, has a call to students with discounted prices and trendy styles.

Twenty-fifteen {2015} introduced an emphasis on individuality and efficient communication. How does this pertain to fashion pieces at Bloomingdales for young men?  "From the beginning, the Bloomingdale's brothers sought to present new products first; and when they weren't first with an idea, they simply did it bigger and better than anyone else." By better, I like to think they mean more affordable without sacrificing style.

A trip to the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, home to a Bloomingdale's location, showed my brothers just how easy (and affordable) it is to spruce up there winter looks for spring 2015. I know most men don't like to hassle with latest trends, fusses, etc. I get it... here are some simple pieces to remix your current selection. Arrive to class, the gym, party, etc. as if you're following through with some new aspirations in life.

Joggers, Stylish Tee, New Balance Sneakers

Uniform yet remixed
Some fashion trends I suggest to look out for at your local Bloomingdale's location (according to current selections and predictions from Spring 2015 fashion shows): spring always has the blues, yellows, stripes, bolds, pinks, and polka dots. Check out some pattern play with your style; however, that does not mean wearing two incompatible pieces.

DO make formal, informal. Throw on a blazer with a tee and jeans ensemble or sneakers to a slacks type of day. Men have so many options these days and you can find them as low as 50% off at the Bloomingdale's in the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets.

BTW Pattern socks are totally still a thing. Actually they are preferred.

Do you even work out bro? Adding fitness to your New Year's resolutions list? Yeah, me too. 

Comment below if you know a guy that has been stuck in the same wardrobe style for like ever??
