The Zoe Report

14 Jul


Oops, forgot to remove the tag from the bottom of my shoe! Anyway, fell in love with this tuxedo-style jumpsuit when I first laid eyes on it! I wasn’t my usual size but what the heck, I tried it on anyway. As you can see it fit! That’s one rule of thumb that I stand by when shopping. Don’t knock it until you try it on! You never know. Designers sizing isn’t standard across the board. Especially due to vanity sizing. They want to make women think that they are smaller than they really are. That works in the case where some women are so hooked on the size of the garment instead of how it fits them and how they look and feel in the garment.

Office (In)Appropriate

14 May


Is there anything better than a crop top and high waist flare jeans? Well, maybe not better but just as good! Anyway, the blazer was added to make the look a bit more classic and office appropriate. Although I don’t know what office would allow its employees to wear crop tops to work. Well, maybe if you work in a more creative environment that is more fashion forward and free. So instead of my usual everyday attire of medical scrubs and sneakers, this is what I would wear to the office of my dreams. What would you wear to work if you could wear whatever you wanted? Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Crop Top: Rainbow

Jeans: Stella McCartney (old)

Blazer: Liz Claiborne (thrifted)

Wedges: Jessica Simpson (very old)


Me and My Baby

Sharing this outfit post with my Baby. Wide leg pants are trending right now so I decided to dig these oldies but goodies out of the archives. Several years ago I had a thing for wide legs. All different kinds. Bell bottoms, flares, straight, you name it, I have them. And in several different fabrics. This pair is more of a trouser cut. The thing with wide leg pants is that they are mostly made to be very long in length. Now that’s ok for someone like make who has the height to carry them (with a heel of course), but could be a problem some others. I’ve even seen some girls wearing them so long that they drag the ground, ugh. I think of might have done that one time or two but not purposely. It was just a last minute outfit decision and I didn’t realize the pants were so long and by then it was too late! But in my opinion I think you should take them to a tailor and have them altered to fit. When you do, take along a pair of shoes with the heel height that you will be wearing with the pants so that the length can be adjusted appropriately. Fit can make or break an outfit and it’s always better to have properly fitted clothing even if you need to spend a little extra on alterations. As for Javar’s outfit, this is one of the rare occasions when he isn’t in athletic wear. For the last few years he has gained this aversion for jeans or anything that isn’t athletic (ie; sweatpants/track pants). So wearing these khaki trousers is “getting dressed” to him. Of course I am always trying to “pressure” him into wearing jeans and a shirt/sweater or something else besides sweats. But I am slowly beginning to throw in the towel on that one. Anyway, hope you had a great weekend. God Bless!

Seasonal Mixology

Sunday: Today I’m doing a bit of season mixing. This is the time of the year where it gets a little confusing on what to wear cause our weather on the East Coast is a bit if-y. It’s almost Spring so it gets slightly warmer in the afternoon than it is in the morning. So how do you know what to wear so that you are comfortable in either case? Well, that’s when I decide to mix things up. And also because I want to get the last wear out of my Winter clothing. So today I went with “Winter” on top and “Spring/Summer” on the bottom. Even though technically I would wear the bottoms in the colder months too, maybe with tights underneath for extra warmth. Next time I might wear these with a lighter weight top and open toe sandals. Trend Alert: Culottes are on trend for this season. You can find them in alot of stores in several colors, fabrics and lengths. They look good on all body types so don’t be afraid to try them out! God Bless!
