MOM JEANS OBSESSION

Is this the end of the skinny jeans? In the past few years mom jeans have been making their way back into the fashion scene.
This style of jeans was very popular in the 80s and 90s worn typically by middle-aged women but now everyone is rocking it. A lot of these jeans are coming back with frayed or distressed bottoms which I think makes them look cool and more youthful.
I am seeing people wearing the mom jeans or the straight leg jeans more frequently than the super tight skinny jeans. That is why I ask myself if perhaps this is the end of the skinny jeans since they have been the most popular thus far.
I still love skinny jeans and I don’t think they are out of style. I think I will always wear them. Although I said the same thing about flare or bell bottom jeans which I don’t wear anymore.
I am still getting used to mom jeans since I am a denim fan and I like trying different styles.

Amazing Find in the Men’s Department

Hello everyone and welcome to 2018. I had no resolutions for this year at all. If things continued to be like last year I would be happy. As long as I am healthy I am content. But as soon as 2018 started many things happened already that forced me to created a resolution. 2018 will be a financial discipline year for me. I have to be more careful on how  I spend my money, savings and so forth.

Today I want to talk to you about my amazing find in the men’s department at H&M. I always had a curiosity to explore the men’s section in stores. At times they sell things that appear to be unisex, trending pieces that women can also wear, items that seem to be more durable and cheaper than women’ clothes.

With the oversize hype going on in the fashion industry more women are shopping in the men’s department to get the perfect oversized look since at times our “oversize” clothing is not big enough to perfectly fit the trend.

In terms of durability I feel that men’s wear don’t tear as quickly or shrink as fast as women’s wear. While shopping at H&M I came across a good sale of men’s button-up shirts. Since you cannot have too many button-up shirts I couldn’t leave this clothing item behind. The quality of this shirt is awesome I feel that it will last me a very long time. The dress shirts for women were $20 so finding this one for only $7 in the men’s department was a good deal.

Tips for women when shopping in the men’s department/stores:
1– Be open minded
Don’t think that just because is men’s wear it won’t look good on you
2– Try on the item
Since men’s sizes are usually bigger than women’s make sure you always try the item
3– Reflect your style in the garment…
If you don’t want to look boyish put a spin into the garment by adding some very feminine pieces to go with it. For example: pretty accessories like earrings or necklaces, heels and purses.
