HAPPY FRIDAY! Honestly, I’ve been having a wonderful first week of unemployment. This week was my parents’ vacation, so the entire family got together every day to go to the beach, visit Coney Island, have dinner, and watch movies together. I’m already so much less stressed than I was, and I know I made the right choice.
Today’s outfit is a combination of old and new, fast fashion and staple piece. I got this new top from Dezzal, and it’s perfect for work, brunch, and dressier occasions. Dezzal is a new site I hadn’t heard of before, and even though it’s pricier than I’m used to, I really appreciate the quality of the clothing and the emphasis on highlighting the work of different designers. It’s a nice departure from trendy, fast fashion sites.
This top is so my style: with cape sleeves and rhinestones along the neckline. I wore it with an old pair of shorts for a dressy daytime look. The designer of this shirt is a brand called Chicpicco, and on the site you can read a short story of the designer’s inspiration and history.
A top like this would fit perfectly into a capsule wardrobe because it’s a neutral yet accented, and because it’s versatile, you can wear it for a lot of different occasions and never get bored styling it. I would wear this top with a pencil skirt or black pants for work, or with a mini skirt or draped joggers for a classy daytime look. How would you wear a top like this?
