Fashion Friday: Stripes

It’s fashion Friday on The Doll Mob and today’s style spotlight is #Stripes. See how you can dress them up or down for business, weddings, and more by tuning in to our IG.

Stripes and peaches

Favorite part of this outfit (besides the shoes of course) has got to be the Victoria Beckham Twill Ruffle Peplum jacket.  That woman has such impeccable style since it’s crazy…..I truly believe if the Spice Girls would have made it further if they allowed Victoria to be in control of their wardrobe. No shade…just one woman’s opinion.

Anywho…the classic contrast of black and white paired with a sweet peach tone made me feel strong and feminine vibes so I went with it.

 

How would you rock your stripes?

Groundhog Day Spring is coming soon….But Valentines Day is coming Sooner.

Greetings Doll Babies and Gents,

 

Hopefully, you’ve all been maintaining and protecting your beauty (inside and out).

 

Sooo, today is February 2nd and what most of us know as Groundhog Day…and that means the little guy or girl groundhog takes their traditional peek outside of it’s habitat to see if a shadow accompanies them. If they see a shadow winter will be here to stay for much longer than we can probably stand. If they don’t see a shadow spring is assuming her position early. Today, dolls and gents…when Sandy or Andy groundhog took his morning stroll there was no shadow.

I’m not really surprised the “forecast” predicts a short winter mainly due to the fact that it was 70+ degrees on Christmas day.  Anyway,the point is…. it may be warm and Spring may arrive early but Valentines day is still right around the corner.

I try to send you a fashion or beauty bone when it comes to Holiday gifting so here’s tea.

ANGELIQUE

vdaybanner

This tea is for the dolls and gents with dolls with the curves. If you’re anything like me (curvy, confident, and not real fond of forced brand commitment) Adore me is a little less desirable. No shade to Adore Me…..because from what I’ve seen they had nice designs (mostly for thin body types). Angelique on the other hand is plus size lingerie boutique that specializes in sexy goodies for those of us who can’t be classified as thin. I’m talking hosery, lingerie, costumes, bridal items, swim wear (which isn’t my fav TBH), and much more.

Take a look at some of my favs!

Balmain Meets H&M: Dates, Prices & Quality…

H-and-M-Balmain

Some/most of you may have heard the news but, it’s a must that I discuss Balmain and it’s arrival to H&M. If you’ve been a subbie for a while you know I am 100% in awe of the Balmain brand minus their infatuation with the Kardashians (another blog…another day). Because the statement making designs had me at hello and I was admittedly over excited when I heard the news a while ago.

Because I had some down time after homework I wanted to bring you the tea on a Balmain Shopping spree @ H& M.

Q: When

Date

A: November 5th which is this Thursday.

Q: Is it the same Balmain?

A: About that, I saw/read an interview about the Balmain brand coming to H&M and Oliver Rousteing (the genius behind the brand and the designer bestie of my dreams) admitted that the line for H&M understandably had a different quality to make it more affordable. Which means, cheaper fabrics, less work etc. etc. Design wise there is still a flare ……..but to be quite honest while it’s similar it’s not comparable to the Balmain Collection.

modamob-balmain-hm-embed-collage_0

Q: Can I afford it?

A: I don’t know what you can afford, But I know I can do a lot more with $600 than buy a dress. Yes, $600 for a dress. Of course compared to the regular prices that easily surpass $1,000 the H&M collection will put me in the market for a few Balmain pieces in a nearer future. There are a few items I could see myself making a sacrifice or two for, but her I’m a fool in love.

Q: Do you think the line will be successful?

A: Of course, and that is not my Balmain Bias talking! As long as there are more people who will miss a car payment to be able to say they’re wearing Balmain, Gucci, Prada etc. fashion will remain a multibillion-dollar industry. While the designs are beautiful, I can admit that I would be more fond of them had I never seen “the real” Balmain collection. That’s not going to stop me from getting gifting myself that Navy blue militant # for $129 (if they have them in my size).

All I’ve ever wanted was Balmain for Christmas Don’t judge me..

Because the design is usually embroidered, beaded engraved, sparkly, structured, or statement provoking in some other capacity, the collection will more than likely miss those who prefer to dress casually. However, that is true in any market so I doubt that be the death of Balmain.

Sizes?

Size is actually a good topic to touch on. Most designers don’t cater to the curvy 60% of the population. Some have even been quoted about not wanting plus people to wear their clothing. I’m curious to know if Balmain and H&M have put any thought into making the collection accessible to women like me. My girls/twins/tatas will not be forced into a L/XL for anyone. Not even Oliver (No offense BFF). I haven’t seen any info on the sizes we can expect but H&M has a pretty extensive plus collection so my fingers are crossed.
