Another 90’s Fashion Trend?

We all know that denim comes in a lot of different washes. When I was a teen (showing my age LOL) acid wash was really popular.A few weeks ago, I went into a Forever 21 and saw a few pairs of acid wash jeans. You probably saw them. They were turquoise and pink. I can’t remember the other colors. Ever since that moment, I couldn’t stop thinking about them. But, I knew I couldn’t really pull off those colors.Then I walked into Forever 21 on Saturday and saw these Mineral Wash Skinny Jeans ($24.80) below. I knew I had to have…

I will save all that for the bolder and more courageous curvy girls.I will stick to the classic, yet chic silhouettes with a fun print. Please for the love of fashion. Don’t be afraid of prints! I know I say that all the time, but it’s true.For me, these styles are so…

Why Size Discrimination?

I’m VERY irritated with this so-called fashion industry, fashion scene, or fashion whatever. As a designer, you have the right to create whatever you like, in any size, and for any person.

DefShop is Hip Hop & Streetwear

You’re curvy, you adore Hip Hop, maybe you skate, and you love Streetwear fashion. I knew you were out there.After spending time in New York City, I can definitely appreciate all types of fashion. Especially style that comes from the streets. I am so jealous of those who can actually pull it off. And now that streetwear had definitely gone retro, I’m getting flash backs just writing this.I was checking out Def Shop, a Hip Hop and Streetwear online boutique from Europe, and I instantly fell for the retro inspired shoes. Especially, those nice sneakers, like the Nike’s. This is all…
