I remember riding in the car one day with my friend Lindsay, and I was wearing a black sparkly tank top. She says to me, “your shirt is so sparkly, just like your personality.” I was like, “Yassssssssssss, thank you!” I love it when someone recognizes that my clothes match my personality. I am ALL about that sparkle and glitter vibe. I believe that we all wear a piece of ourselves each and everyday. In this post, I’m going to show you how to buy and style fishnets, shorts, and glitter crop tops.
For those of you who don’t know I’m a singer in a local band, and last weekend we had a show. Naturally, I like to sparkle as much as I can so I decided to go with this outfit. I bought everything the day before (typical). My first stop was Plato’s closet. I am all for consignment clothing – hence the reason why I launched Eyecandy. Nothing makes me happier than finding a deal…
Top – Plato’s closet $5
Shorts – Plato’s closet $7
Fishnets – Random hair shop in University Heights $2.99 Note* you can almost always find fishnets in any hair store in Buffalo. It’s an item they carry everywhere!
Total – $14.99!!
This entire outfit cost me $15 and I aint mad about it *praise dance* There’s usually always a good deal if you have the time and patience to search for one. Buying clothes at the mall is an absolute last resort for me. If I don’t find what I’m looking for at a consignment shop, then I head to the big department stores. Although – Zara will probably always be an exception because its one of my favorite stores ever! But I’m all about finding that special deal, and I’m so glad I found this one.
- Rock an all-white sneaker – I love my converse (as you know) and think that white chucks looks super cute with this look. It’s something about all-white footwear that really makes an outfit pop. You’d be surprised how good it looks with the right black tights.
- Adjust the fishnets – pull your fishnets up above your hips to create a high-waist look. My personal opinion – its sexy af, and helps define your curves.
- Always go for the crop top – Almost all of my tops are cropped. (Sidenote I also cut holes in my t-shirts and wear most of my sweatshirts backwards. You gotta do you)
- Accessorize – So I’m sure what people notice about me, is that I always wear a black choker. I know its seems extremely basic to some ppl, but I feel naked when I don’t wear it. It’s the same way I feel when my nails aren’t done. My brain tells me to wear it, and somehow it matches every outfit I wear. I think it makes this look more fun and sexy.
My fashion motto
What whatever the f*** you want, and don’t worry about what others may say or think. You don’t have to dress up all the time in order to get a guy’s attention either. I am usually casual X sexy, and that hasn’t stopped the guys from noticing lol! I like to feel sexy but also confident. You can almost always find me in a denim jacket, chucks, and something black, white or grey. In the summer I love dresses and other fun bright outfits, but there’s always an element of denim. So trust me ladies – 99% of guys LOVE that casual and sexy minimal look ; ) Be you and feel comfortable.
